Chinese Tuition

Know Your Child’s Learner’s DNA

Ace Chinese with teaching pedagogy developed for every type of learner.

Students we've taught come from some of these schools.

All of us probably had one (or more than one) outstanding teacher who has made a huge impact on our school grades. When classes were enjoyable and interesting, lessons taught were easy to understand and absorb, even scoring for that particular subject was a breeze!

However, the teacher you have in mind is probably different from the one your peers had. You see, not all teachers/tutors are able to build a strong rapport with every single student in the classroom. Not that they are not great teachers, but it’s because every student, including your child, has a unique learning style and needs to meet the right kind of teacher who can spark interest and unleash his/her full potential to help him/her thrive in school.

Unfortunately, this problem is common in tuition centres and with home tutors in the market, where many are still unable to customise their teaching styles and materials to suit the needs of every single child.

We Are Not A One-Size-Fits-All Tuition Centre

Over the past 6 years, we’ve worked with hundreds of parents to take kids from being bored and frustrated with Chinese, to being excited, curious and eager to do their Chinese assignments. Not only did their child show tremendous improvement in their Chinese grades after attending our lessons, but he/she also start to develop interest in the once-boring Chinese subject and becomes an independent learner who takes responsibility and pride in his/her own learning.

Here are some of the students we have helped:

Revealing The Success Formula For Chinese

Assessing Your Child’s Learning Style

Does your child complete Chinese assignments fast but tend to get confused between characters? Or is he/she weaker in composition and oral but does well in spelling?

Which Does Your Child Communicate More In?

It is pivotal that we know what learning style your child has before starting class so that we can employ an effective teaching method. That’s why we start by assessing students and profiling them based on their learning styles (visual, auditory or kinesthetic) and behavioural combinations (builder, opportunist, specialist or innovator) using a questionnaire that is meticulously designed and adapted based on the internationally-applied BOSI DNA framework created by Joe Abraham.

Purposefully Planned Lessons And Assignments

By understanding your child’s psychological behaviour towards learning, we are able to then better customise our classroom activities and lesson materials that not only will help your child gain a new-found joy in learning Chinese, but also enable him/her to absorb and retain new Chinese characters, vocabulary and meanings better. For instance, allowing a kinesthetic learner to act out a scene in Chinese is more effective than making him/her read off a textbook on the same topic. By developing a whole set of teaching pedagogy catered for each learning type, you will finally see an improvement in your child’s interest level in Chinese, oral abilities and exam grades.

Who We Help

Upper Primary Students 

If learning Lower Primary Chinese is a walk in the park, then mastering Upper Primary Chinese will be a climb up the mountain. As your child progresses from Primary 4 to Primary 5/6, you may have seen a drastic drop in their Chinese exam grades because of the steep learning curve. With national exams around the corner, it is time for your child to seek the right help to do well in PSLE.

Lower Secondary Students  

The higher demands of the new syllabus and exam format will really stress out any Secondary 1 or 2 students. Plus, with mid-year exams already removed for Secondary 1, students who don’t tend to do well under exam conditions will require the right help to prepare themselves for the demands of year-end exams.

Upper Secondary Students

Overloading content and assessments are common when exams are near. Not to mention at the end of Secondary education, it is the national exam that will determine your child’s future. You’ll want your child to score well in order to enter his/her desired Junior College or Polytechnic courses. It’s not too late to help your child improve his/her Chinese grade.

FAQs

Are your lessons designed? according to MOE syllabus?

How big is the class size?

What if my child can’t make it for the lessons?

Can my child consult the teacher outside of class?

Are your tuition fees expensive?

How fast can I see results?

Chinese matters more than ever before.

You probably already know that Chinese is one of the most widely spoken languages (on earth and on the internet). If your child has zero interest in the language now, he/she will likely not learn to read, write or speak in Chinese in the future.

If your child has been drilling practice papers or attending tuition programmes with little to no improvements shown, perhaps it’s time to try something else. At the very least, he/she should be sitting in for the Diagnostic Assessment, where you will: 

  • Discover your child’s ‘problematic’ spots by analysing their past papers 
  • Find out your child’s learning-behavioural profile on the spot 
  • Understand how our method and materials can help your child learn Chinese effectively to improve his/her grade
