All our materials are specially designed by Ms Chen. Having gone through the Singapore education system both as a student and teacher, Ms Chen is well aware of the marking and examination requirements, as well as the struggles students face in learning Chinese.
With her deep knowledge and experience of commonly tested composition topics, Ms Chen and her team of bilingual and MOE-trained teachers (from Peking University, Fudan University, NUS and NTU Chinese) are able to guide students in identifying relevant and common topics likely to be tested examinations.
Our Group Lessons cover:
Comprehension techniques and application
Model composition guidance, analysis of composition questions and application
Textbook vocabulary revision
Oral common topics and practice
English and Chinese Teaching Methods
Ms Chen and her team of bilingual teachers leverages on their strengths in English and Chinese to explain difficult terms and vocabulary to ensure your child fully comprehends the curriculum and topics.
Making it relevant and Fun!
Our goal is to enable your child to have a greater appreciation and understanding of the Chinese language by teaching them practical applications of Chinese to daily life, through the use of current affairs, music, movies and books to hone your child's oral and writing abilities.
The teacher-student connection is vital in helping your child love the language a little more and see the nuances and beauty of Chinese.
Small class size
All our group lessons have an average of 5 students to encourage active two-way communication. We ensure that all students in the group have similar standards, so that they are able to follow the pace of the lessons.
Students are expected to speak up in class discussions on news topics, to maximise their learning.
Online and Offline Hybrid Class Format
We offer students the flexibility to attend classes in-person or online. So if your child is unable to travel to the Centre, your child can attend class from home.
Unsure whether online classes will work for your child, learn more about our online class format here.
Ms Chen is a strong advocate of 2-way interaction between students and herself, she interacts with students and provides guidance on their homework, school essays, orals and tests on Whatsapp even after classes.
HOW YOU CAN EXCEL WITH
CHEN HIGHER CHINESE
SCORING IN CHINESE IS NOT BY CHANCE
Ms Chen's students have consistently achieved distinctions in the GCE ‘O’ Level HCL examination. Unlike subjects like Mathematics and Sciences, improvement in languages DO NOT naturally come within a short period of time, however students who follow Ms Chen’s advice methodically will definitely be able to see marked improvement.
Ms Chen hopes to motivate and help them to see that learning of the Chinese language does not end after their 'O' Level HCL exams.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS AND PARENTS THINK
"陈老师 really helped me to improve my Chinese and expand my vocabulary and knowledge of current affairs. She is a really dedicated and passionate teacher, and puts so much effort into preparing every lesson. 陈老师 provided us with a lot of model essays, current affairs summaries and oral notes which helped me with my revision. Outside of tuition, she’s a great mentor and she’s given me a lot of good life advice. Would really recommend going for her lessons!"
Suzanne T., Nanyang Girls' High School (Sec 4, 2022) - A1 HCL O'Level
"陈老师 lessons are always very interesting and engaging - she shares with us recent news, life experiences and her pro studying techniques, which I've been able to apply to other subjects as well. I have been with the Centre throughout my secondary years and have seen my grades improved over the years to a final distinction in O level. Chinese is less intimidating because of her detailed guidance. And there are always plenty of resources available from model compo to comprehension exercises. She is more than a teacher to us. 谢谢老师这四年的苦心！"
T. Yi Rui, Hwa Chong Institution (Sec 4, 2021) - A2 HCL O'Level
"Initially, I was not too confident of how useful the online lessons would be, but I thought I would give it a try anyway. Ever since then, I have never regretted my choice. Before joining, I was failing and could not understand why. But in a matter of a few months, I found myself improving in the Chinese language as Ms Chen would point out my mistakes and explain to me in detail. Most of the time, lessons were filled with interactions, with the students spontaneously answering questions, without much prompting from the teacher. Occasionally, the teacher would also crack jokes and bring up stories to make lessons even more enjoyable. Overall, I am very fortunate to have found such a passionate teacher who truly teaches from the heart. In doing so, I have found joy in learning the Chinese language and have learnt a lot. 谢谢您陈老师！"

"Before I joined the class, I struggled with compo writing. However, after attending Ms Chen’s classes, I learned to write more effective topic sentences and better illustrate my examples, leading me to jump from borderline passes to an A grade. I particularly appreciated the opportunity to learn new techniques for improving my writing, gaining knowledge of examples that were applicable to my essays, and receiving frequent high-quality personal feedback from Ms Chen. In addition, her oral notes were also very comprehensive and she lets us have ample practices, which were very useful in my O level preparation."
Cadence L., Raffles Girls' School (Sec 4, 2022) - A2 HCL O'Level
"She’s an amazing teacher who is really patient, kind, and makes learning so fun. Without her guidance and teaching, I wouldn’t be able to get by in A-level chinese. When I first started the year, I wasn’t comfortable in conversational Chinese at all but I always looked forward to the lessons with 陈老师 because she makes it so comfortable and fun to work on my spoken Chinese. It was so cool to see it develop into a something I can actually use in daily life and chatting with extended family! Truly the best Chinese teacher ever :) Thank you so much 陈老师!"
Zayin T., NUS High School (JC1, 2022) - B H1 CL A’Level
"Ms Chen really understands my child very well and is able to devise techniques to deal with my child’s weaknesses. She is very patient and understanding, and is the only teacher that is able to engage my son the best. Before that, we had a couple of other Chinese tutors but none that my son found engaging. We are so glad for Ms Chen to help my son in this journey of learning Chinese, and even provide guidance and pointers in which secondary school to attend, knowing my son’s personality. I am confident my son is in good hands as he embarks on his secondary school journey."

"陈老师 is a caring and engaging teacher, always willing to answer any questions that I have. Other than that she also has a literal treasure trove of resources that she gives students, like comprehension practices, model compositions and oral guides, always spot on exam topics and extremely useful. She has helped me a lot in refining my comprehension techniques over the 4 years, and gives me detailed feedback on the compositions I have written and how to improve. All in all I think she's a great teacher!! :D 谢谢老师的教导！ "
Hannah H., Nanyang Girls' High School (Sec 4, 2021), A1 HCL O'Level
"I joined this tuition in preparation for my O levels examination. 陈老师 supported my learning through a plethora of methods such as providing articles about current affairs, vocabulary lists and many practice papers. I could also ask questions about certain aspects of the lesson that I did not grasp fully and she would address my questions in detail. These certainly helped me in my composition, comprehension and oral examinations, allowing me to improve from a C6 in school examinations to an A2 for O levels in the span of less than a year."
