Recruitment of Volunteer English Tutors for TSW On-site English Tutorial Program

In the past four years since establishment in 2015, our free on-site English tutorial program has expanded progressively, and currently serves six secondary schools in Tin Shui Wai and six in Kwai Chung. Over 1200 under-privileged students have benefited from our service, and some 60 alumni have been recruited to help out, mainly through the support of the two past students associations. In view of the expansion, we now need more tutors from the Wah Yan community.

If you or your family wish to put into practice the spirit of “Men for and with Others” and are willing to sacrifice a few hours per week of your free time (weekdays after school or Saturday mornings, for about ten weeks per school term) to help the needy by serving as an on-site English tutor, please visit the following websites containing details of our program and the roles of tutors, and an enrollment form:



If interested, please complete and return the enrollment form to us. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either Stephen Lam (WYHK’75) at 93297501 or Herbert Chan (WYHK’79) at 90816207. We look forward to your favourable response.
