"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."

"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 :)"

"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."

"Ms Chen is an effective and caring Chinese teacher. She drills us on compre techniques and gives us a lot of model compos to prepare for exams. I enjoy the group lessons and she's always very generous in entertaining our endless questions, understanding our strengths and helping us to build on it, especially in compo. Thanks Ms Chen for your guidance these years!"

"Really great Higher Chinese tuition teacher. I have been a student for <2yrs+. Chinese would usually be a subject where most students dislike but somehow, she is able to peak my interest in Chinese and help me to slowly improve."

"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. Thanks Ms Chen!"

"Ms Chen understands my strengths and weaknesses and is proficient in teaching me how to make good use of my strengths and improve on my weaknesses. She is also a resourceful teacher with many exam papers and Chinese model compositions. I can always ask Ms Chen to look through my exam scripts and she helps me to analyse my mistakes and tells me the areas I need to work on. She always clarifies my doubts on my Chinese homework when I WhatsApp her. With the help of Ms Chen, I managed to do my O-Level Higher Chinese papers more confidently."

"Both my daughters attend Ms Chen's Chinese tuition and she tailors the lessons for them. My elder daughter is weak in Chinese composition and Ms Chen gives her alot of guidance and practice on composition writing and essay techniques. Her writing skills improved under Ms Chen and she managed to pull her composition grades from 30s to 40s. My younger daughter attends the Chinese tuition group lessons. She enjoys the group dynamics and energy, and benefitted from the regular drilling of vocabulary and comprehension techniques."

"Ms Chen’s enthusiasm and passion for the Chinese language rubs off on me, and she constantly motivates me to do better in my Higher Chinese. During the months leading up to the O-Level oral exam, Ms Chen pushed me to watch the Chinese news everyday to improve my oral. She discusses the topics in a comprehensive way and train me to think critically. I can always Whatsapp her for help on my school work and any questions, and she always clarifies my doubts readily."

"Ms Chen taught me Chinese 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 W., Raffles Institution (Sec 3, 2018)
"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 Higher Chinese Tuition 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 T., Hwa Chong Institution (Sec 2, 2018)
"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 comprehension passages better. From failing, she has improved to scoring Bs and is now motivated to do better."
