Honours B.A in International Studies
University of Toronto, Canada
Justin graduated from University of Toronto with an Honours B.A in International Studies. After graduation, he taught English at ChungDahm Institute, one of South Korea’s leading test preparation centres, eventually becoming Head Instructor managing over 700 students and 30 teachers per semester. He then moved to Hong Kong in 2013 to set up his own private practice where he specializes in teaching HKDSE, IELTS and TOEFL as well as providing corporate business English services to both locals and expats. Justin noticed students in Asia often have the pre-requisite foundation to perform well, but lacked the confidence to perform well in exams. Hence, he breaks down each test component into manageable chunks and coaches students to approach each question in a systematic and effective way. This allows the students to fully understand the test content and improve their scores.
