WHAT OUR STUDENTS AND PARENTS THINK
"Really grateful to have Ms Chen teach my daughter Oral and Composition techniques. My daughter was hesitant in conversing in Chinese and afraid of Oral, but Ms Chen constantly encouraged her and now she is more motivated to study for Oral and confident in speaking. Ms Chen also gave many ideas for her Composition which she was able to apply in her exams. She scored more than 30/40 marks for the first time. More importantly, she enjoys lessons with Ms Chen and we are happy to have found a gem."
Renee, Parent of Pri 5 Nanyang Primary Student
"Ms Chen taught me Comprehension techniques that helped me to ace Comprehension. I like that she incorporates current affairs and news in her lessons which makes reading Chinese news less intimidating. Under her guidance, I managed to improve from a borderline pass to top of class for Paper 2."
Ian, Sec 3, Raffles Institution Student
"Ms Chen is very patient in explaining Chinese vocabulary to me, in both English and Chinese. I can always reach out to Ms Chen readily when I have questions. I used to dislike Chinese lessons but Ms Chen makes her lessons enjoyable by sharing music and current affairs in China. She also introduced martial arts novels to me which I enjoyed. My Higher Chinese has improved from Bs to As and I managed to qualify for the End of Year Exam exemption.
Alex, Sec 2, Hwa Chong Institution Student
"Very thankful to Ms Chen for guiding my daughter and being so patient. My daughter has a weak foundation as she did not take Higher Chinese in primary school, but Ms Chen constantly encouraged her and expanded her vocabulary. I am impressed with the vocabulary she is able to use in her Composition after a few lessons. Now, she understands Comprehensive passages better. From failing, she has improved to scoring Bs and is now motivated to do better.
