LifeSmart™

At Tutor Time, every child’s individuality is used to his or her advantage in the way they learn, grow, build self-esteem, and develop their imagination. Our approach is inspired by Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences theory, which is based on research about how individuals learn in unique ways.

 

The foundation of this theory is that we are able to know the world through 8 different “intelligences” or “Smarts.” Every one of us is unique in how we use each of these intelligences and the ways in which we combine them to carry out tasks and solve problems.

 

We continually modify our Kindergarten curriculum to ensure that both the Mandarin and English components adhere to or exceed the standards of both local and international primary schools. That’s why our curriculum continues to shine in today’s competitive educational landscape. Tutor Time students go on to attend the best local and international schools in Hong Kong.
