Hi everyone my name is Mr Chisem and I'll be your CNET over the 2020-21 school year. My role as a Chatteris Native English Tutor is to promote an English learning environment within Kowloon Tong School Secondary Section (KTSSS), whilst making lessons as enjoyable as can be.
I was born in a small town located just outside of Leeds, in the UK. Pontefract is an old mining town in the north of England with a population of around 30,000, so quite the contrast from Hong Kong's 7.5 million people!
I studied Accounting & Finance in Leeds and was lucky enough to undertake a placement year working for ESPN in London! I loved the "big city" life London had to offer but always knew I wanted to work further afield.
I have travelled to Asia on several occasions before, visiting countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, India and Sri Lanka and fell in love the continent, so felt Hong Kong was the right place for me!
I have only been out of quarantine 3 weeks, so have lots of areas of Hong Kong left to explore! Outside of work, I enjoy most sports such as football, running, hiking and going to the gym. In 2018, I managed to complete a marathon back in the UK, although I do struggle with the heat whilst running in Hong Kong. I am also part of Chatteris FC and am looking forward to travelling to all areas of Hong Kong playing football against local teams.
Post pandemic, you can find me in the best English corner ever (Kowloontongers bus) every lunch, where we will be doing different English activities such as board games, quizzes and film Fridays!
Please feel free to stop me in the playground or corridors to have a chat! I look forward to meeting you all throughout the school year!
