FYI, TLL is doing online “live” lessons during this circuit breaker. But no video, just audio.

Hello,

Anyone who have tried online tuition? Is it effective? How is it being carried out? Can it be done in group?

I like to share with all parents about my recent bad experience with Stalford Learning Centre. I have sent my daughter for the secondary 4 enrichment classes. Due to CB, the tuition has to pivot to online but they are absolutely incompetent and the management is so incapable to equip with staff to problem solving. Till today, we have 3 times of access issues and each times, we have to repeatedly follow up and follow up before we have a resolution and that's when the class is already in session. Again and again, only an apology in text and there is no idea of the root of the issue. Given the mistakes made several times and that include today, I have asked for some discount and the answer given is they do not adjust fees given that it doesn't happen frequently. I am not sure what's the definition of frequent. Maybe it needs to happen weekly before they will take it seriously. What's most upsetting is the management attitude and the way they handle problems and parents who pay them the fees.

If you are looking for any enrichment centre, I strongly discourage parents to consider this tuition centre for your kids.as they are only interested in making money and not student learning.

Thanks for sharing with us your experience with this Tuition. This is quite sad since they don't handle well their issues and we parents are trying our best to pay for them expecting we can get good service from them, in return. What subjects are they teaching by the way?

Thank you so much sandy cheung for sharing your experience with that tuition. It really helps especially for someone like me considering on getting one for my daughter. Budget is quite tough so getting a tuition with bad service is such a waste.

Thank you also chegoho55 for sharing your good experience. I appreciate the idea of joining free classes first before deciding to fully sign-up. Didn't know there are tuition offering like that.

Your thoughts are really helpful. Thank you for taking time to comment.

not all tuition offer free trial class before actually signing up, at zero cost.. but can be able to help find one for a Sec and JC, I can send you PM for the details.
