Methodology

Structured Curriculum


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 communicationWe 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

 

Woffer 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.

All-round support 

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.

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

"我中二时的华文差一点不及格,因此上了陈老师的课。这几年来,我在老师的耐心指导下,渐渐提升了我的语文程度。陈老师时常会针对新闻、学校以及其他和我生活息息相关的话题进行讨论。陈老师没有单教课本里的知识,而是因材施教,以适合学生兴趣的方式来教书。比如说,她得知了我对音乐有热忱之后,就给我介绍几首巨有意义和旋律优美的华文歌,然后解释词语的含义,以激发我对华文的兴趣。

陈老师也非常了解学生们的特长。学校老师常鼓励大家写议论文、材料文,但是陈老师认为我比较擅长写记叙文,因此给了我很多记叙文的范文和故事让我学习里面的好词佳句,在考试中派上用场。

陈老师也时常发简讯给我,提醒我完成功课。由于我是个被动的人,陈老师的催促对我非常有助。她也教导我如何安排时间,应付繁重的课业。

每当考试来临,陈老师也会给我一些卡片和小礼物鼓励我再接再厉。在老师的耐心指导下,我才能在O水准考试中得到A1。"

黄镜为,莱佛士女中 (中四, 2020年) - A1 HCL O'Level

"Thank you Ms Chen for helping me with my HCL! Although my Chinese standard is a borderline pass, Ms Chen never gave up on me and tailors her model compositions to my level so that I will have not find it too challenging to learn and remember. In addition, she also helps me to narrow down the possible topics for Oral and Compo examinations which I find very useful. When I have last minute queries before exams, I can always text Ms Chen and she always gives me detailed explanations promptly. She also sends me encouragement notes and brownies to motivate me. I’m very grateful for her guidance all these years."

Chloe N., CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School (Sec 4, 2020) - A2 HCL O'Level

"我喜欢上陈老师的课,因为陈老师教课的方式生动有趣。老师不仅会鼓励我发表看法以提高我的语文表达能力,也会在课堂上讨论时事话题,让我增广见闻。
 

陈老师会准备许多练习来巩固我的华文基础,并且帮助我为考试做足准备。尤其是在考试期间,陈老师额外的计时模拟试卷和口试练习,让我更充分掌握作答技巧和口试技巧。
 

无论是在课堂上还是通过简讯,陈老师都会耐心地回答我各方面的问题。
除了应付考试以外,陈老师也会通过各种方式,例如介绍散文,来激发我对华文的兴趣。老师甚至会让我通过我所熟悉的华文歌曲的歌词学习词语。在老师的循循善诱下,我不但体验到了学习华文的乐趣,也领悟了学习的真谛!"

王祉颐,南洋女中(中四,2020) - A1 HCL O'Level

"I find Ms Chen’s lessons very useful in refining my comprehension answering techniques and providing me with many model compositions across topics to prepare for exams. During lessons, I get many composition practices and Ms Chen provides me with detailed feedback on how to improve. With Ms Chen’s help, I managed to prepare and “spot” the composition and oral topic for O levels. Thank you Ms Chen!"

Bryan W., Hwa Chong Institution (Sec 4, 2020) - A2 HCL O'Level

"我在学校的考试中一直在C5和C6之间徘徊。我在会考的前两个月开始上陈老师的课。我原本读了学生对陈老师的课留下的评论,就在想她的课有多神奇,能够让学生在短短的几个月之内从C到A。但我上了陈老师的课之后,我才发现她的课真的是如此神奇。她在课上非常耐心地向我指出并解释我的错误,还给了我许多的词语,成语,谚语和不同话题的范文、资料来背,让我能够在考试中写出好作文。我在她的课上受益良多,并且让我的华语程度提升了许多,还让我找回了自信。"

卓恩熙, 新加坡女子中学 (中四, 2020年) - A1 HCL O'Level

"100% would recommend Ms Chen!! Ms Chen is able to build rapport with her students, she’s young at heart, so lessons are always lively and enjoyable. Before attending her lessons, I disliked Chinese and thought learning it was a chore and only scraped borderline passes in school, but after attending her lessons for 2+ years, she has definitely inspired me with her deep knowledge in Chinese. Beyond the techniques she imparted, I am more motivated to do well in Chinese and speak the language, so thank you Ms Chen :)"

Annabeth L., Chung Cheng High School Main (Sec 4, 2020) – A2 HCL O'Level

"Ms Chen’s Chinese tuition lessons are always interesting and varied. She gives me plenty of resources (especially on composition and oral) and makes sure I am well-prepared for common topics. This has helped to reinforce my knowledge and broaden my exposure. Ms Chen also prepares Chinese oral videos for me to have mock practice which I find very useful. My Chinese composition used to be pretty bad as I do not have enough evidence and phrases, but Ms Chen’s resources and pointers helped me tremendously and I gained more confidence.  I find it useful that I can Whatsapp her when I have any questions and she will explain to me patiently."

Joseph T., Dunman High School (Sec 4, 2019) - A1 HCL O'Level

"I was scraping through my Higher Chinese exams, scoring Cs. A few months before my O'Level, I started intensive Higher Chinese tuition with Ms Chen. She taught me comprehension techniques and gave me a lot of practice papers to practise these techniques and patiently explained my mistakes. She also gave me plenty of Chinese model compositions, taught me good phrases I used in my essays, and helped me spot essay topics for Prelims and O'Levels. Eventually, I managed to score A2 for my Higher Chinese O'Level exam. Thank you Ms Chen for your guidance!"
