To Whom it May Concern,
This reference is written at the request of Mr Martyn Green.

Recommendation letter from Cora Ng, one of my private tuition
To Whom It May Concern
I am proud to recommend my English teacher, Martyn Green.
Martyn is a conscientious and responsible man. I have known him for
over a year in Hong Kong. As a marketing manager, my job involves a
lot of English writing and he always gives me positive advice and
helps me improve my writing skill in English a great deal.
Martyn's experience of writing and editing always comes through in
the teaching he gives to me.
During his time in our classes, Martyn who, as I'm sure you know, is
an excellent writer, has also done a good deal of work besides his
teaching. This has included the text for many of our public
relations brochures and packets, website contents, internal
marketing plans and essentially any correspondence which I have
requested that he compose. The feedback is always overwhelmingly
positive, and he has done so much in that way for my work.
Always, in his work, Martyn is consistent, dedicated and passionate,
enthusiastic, cheerful, and a pleasure to work with. I highly
recommend him for any capacity in which he can spread his excitement
and share his talents with others. And, knowing Martyn, he will not
disappoint, and will probably even exceed your expectations.
Thank you for the opportunity to recommend such a special and
Cora, Hung Wa Ng

COMMENTS BY PAST STUDENTS, ABOUT MY TUTORIAL CLASSES AT HKUST:
From: Patty Au

Dear Martyn and Lily of HKUST,
I'm a former student of this course. I think the Saturday afternoon
tutorial is worthwhile and helpful. I think it's not easy to arouse
Chinese students to speak in front of the new class especially in
Hong Kong. Why? It's because they are shy!
But it helped me develop more confidence to use the English learned,
especially in spoken English. I enjoyed the tutorial sessions
because they were interesting and challenging.
We had to prepare the speech every Saturday in given subject or
chose other topics if we liked. We acted out role play in different
scenarios such as landlord and tenant.
In my opinion, it will be great regret if I don't attend the
Saturday tutorial, that's why I was never absent from the class.

RE: Tutorial class is helpful!
The tutorial classes provide not only good listening practice, but
also practice in speaking in front of non-native speakers, so you
can overcome your nervousness.

Dear Mr. Green,
I'd like to thank you for your suggestions about my speaking skills
in English because those suggestions were really helpful.
I really enjoyed the tutorial sessions because they were
challenging, and the topics in every session were interesting.
Besides that, the tutorial classes provide not only good listening
practice, but also good speaking practice in front of an audience,
which helped me overcome my nervousness.
