Secondary Chinese Tuition

Do you know that most kids don’t see

the importance of chinese at all!?

Xin Yi is a Singaporean Chinese student who grew up in a predominantly English speaking environment like most of her peers. She is in secondary 2 and is taking Express Chinese for her mother tongue subject. She has no problem acing all her other academic subjects including English, Physics and Mathematics but barely scrapes through her chinese exams with mediocre grades. She does not comprehend why she needs to take Chinese as one of her core subject and regards it as a drag in her pursuit for academic excellence. It is nothing but a smirch on her report card.

On the other hand, Xin Yi’s mother is very concerned. She is worried that Xinyi will lose her identity as a Chinese and

forget her roots and heritage when she grows up. This is inspite of the fact that her grandmother immigrated to Singapore from China decades ago and do not know how to speak english. This brought about a communication barrier between Xin Yi and her grandma. Xin Yi’s dad works in an MNC which requires him to fly often, especially to China, the largest growing market and he frequently has to interact with his chinese clients.

Both of them realized that being proficient in Mandarin will not only be tremendously helpful for Xinyi’s future career, but also empowers her to stay grounded in her identity as a Singaporean Chinese. They encourage Xin Yi to take her chinese learning in school as seriously as possible.

Xin Yi understands her parents’ intention but she is facing a uphill battle in rekindling her interest for this subject as well as doing well in it.   In Singapore, more than 70% of local are Chinese. In the education system, most student chooses Chinese as mother tongue language for their secondary school studies. In order to suit different learning capability, MOE has came out with 5 different streams for secondary student taking O levels Chinese. There are Elementary Chinese, Chinese B, Normal Academic Chinese, Express Chinese and Higher Level Chinese, with increasing difficulty level. Each level of Chinese is composed of different skill sets with higher chinese focusing mostly on the toughest aspect of writing.

Students who are not able to cope with their current level of chinese are made to downgrade to a lower level which is lighter in their curriculum. From the scenario above, we understand that Xin Yi is at risk of having to give up Express Chinese. Therefore, she needs additional help in catching up her chinese standards. A private tutor is necessary to make it possible to accelerate her development.
