The programme aims to offer University of Macau (UM) students learning assistance, including study strategies, process of course materials and preparation of tests/exams. From the viewpoint of Honours College (HC) students, this programme provides a service learning opportunity. In addition, the programme also provides an interactive platform between HC students and UM students.
Honours College (HC) students have initiated the “Honours College Tutor Programme” since September 2011. The programme aims to provide study assistance to UM students by providing one-on-one classes. All tutors are the current HC senior students with outstanding academic results and possess positive learning attitudes. Tutoring classes can be instructed in both English and Chinese. The classes are process-oriented, learner-centered, and require active involvement from each student.
Tutors will help in these areas:
- Study strategies (e.g. Time management)
- Specific course content
- Tests/Exams preparation
Students can apply for tutoring services through online appointment in advance, in which they can specify requests (particular courses, tests and another interested tutor who is not listed in the schedule). Moreover, students will evaluate tutors’ performance after each service so that tutors can gain feedbacks and elevate quality of tutoring in the future.
The tutoring classes will be offered once to twice a week, around 1 hour for each class. Tutoring classes can be instructed in both English and Chinese.
For matching a suitable tutor for a student, early appointment will be essential. We encourage students in need of academic support to sign up a week before the preferred class time. The appointment will be opened from Monday to Saturday. Confirmation emails will be sent to students after appointment have been confirmed. The appointment is on a first-come-first-served basis.
