As with any subject, the right tutor can help your child understand the subject skills well and be able to answer all the questions in their exams accurately. Whether your child virtually has had no exposure to spoken Mandarin or it is simply one of their weakest subjects in school, hiring a Chinese tutor can help.

Chinese can be a really difficult subject to ace if students do not converse in it frequently in their households. Be it for essay writing, written papers or even oral exams in school, practice is a must. And if there is a lack of exposure within the home environment, enrolling your child in Chinese tuition can be really helpful in boosting their grades. Whether you plan on enrolling your child in online Chinese tuition or home Chinese tuition classes, investing in Chinese tuition can be worth it in the long run.

Qualifications and Expertise in Teaching Chinese
Read More
Before hiring a tutor, it is essential to find one who has immense knowledge of the language and can successfully pass that knowledge on to your child. A qualified tutor is capable of performing the above procedure. Hence it is important to assess a potential tutor’s academic qualifications and relevant grades in the Chinese language before hiring them. MOE tutors are specially trained to teach the language with proper consideration of the objectives and syllabus. Whereas other tutors have gained personal experience of performing well in their own college years thus increasing their ability to explain concepts and prepare the student for their paper. FamilyTutor provides qualifications and grades of tutors in their profiles. This helps to ease their client’s selection process in finding a suitable and capable Chinese tutor.
Determine Weaknesses and Teach Fundamental Skills Such as HanyuPinyin
Read More
Much like with other languages, students find themselves good in certain skills and weak in others. Therefore, they need consistent help on their weak areas. Chinese home tutors are well-skilled in this department. They can identify a child’s weaknesses and work on them throughout the project duration. Furthermore, they can also help children develop basic skills in their Chinese such as grammar and vocabulary.
Mastery and Application of the Current MOE or International Syllabus
Read More
The MOE syllabus dictates how a particular exam is to be marked and what objectives and topics are to be studied to correctly attempt the paper. Therefore, it is essential to find a tutor who can teach according to the syllabus, be it the MOE syllabus or the international one. This would ensure that the engaged tutor has the capability to teach your child the right content and fully prepare him for his Chinese paper. Furthermore, this regard to the syllabus will also allow them to pinpoint various answering techniques and notes to use in order to ace and tackle the questions given in the paper. FamilyTutor responsibly recommends tutors who fit your needs and requirements. Therefore, when it comes to the MOE syllabus, we hand-pick tutors who have extreme knowledge of the requested syllabus as well as experience and qualifications to convey and pass down that knowledge.
Experience in Teaching Students of Similar Levels
Read More
Experience goes a long way in tutoring. With experience, a tutor knows the ins and outs of the level and the subject and thus can develop various methods to counter and tackle the language. Therefore, it is critical to find a tutor with correct experience hence ensuring that he has immense knowledge teaching the level your child requires help in. Tutors who have experience teaching JC Chinese cannot teach your child secondary school Chinese as the depth of the subject’s as well as their examination pattern greatly vary. Therefore, a tutor with the right experience can correctly prepare your child for his Chinese paper.
Previous Students' Testimonials and Tutor's Credentials

FamilyTutor pinpoints certain tutors who can provide these resources to their students, this helps client’s select suitable and helpful tutors for their child.


As much as Chinese is a rewarding language to learn, it is a difficult one, especially for students who do not speak the language in their households. Having helped many students excel in the Chinese language over the years, we have noticed that there are a few common challenges faced by students that were hindering their ability to score well in their exams before enrolling for Chinese tuition. Some of these challenges faced by students include:

  • Understanding the complexities of the writing system: With thousands of characters, some students may struggle with recognising the various vocabulary and texts. This might lead to difficulty writing, understanding, and answering questions and answers accurately.
  •  Acing intonations and the tonality of the language: Since Chinese is a tonal language, students who are unable to shake off the English intonation patterns can have challenges pronouncing words properly during their oral communication. Recognising different vocabulary and paying attention to details during their listening comprehension can also be a tricky feat.
  • Requires daily memorisation and daily immersion: Understanding the language completely takes years of practice. Therefore, efficient time management, constant practice and external studies to acquire general knowledge are something that many students struggle with when there is a lack of interest in the subject matter.

These are the top challenges faced by most students learning Chinese in Singapore. Aware of these challenges, our Chinese tutors will design a personalised curriculum so that your child can overcome these aforementioned issues. To help your child score a high grade, seek help through a Chinese tutor in Singapore and equip your child with the necessary skills to excel.

Grammar, comprehension, phrasing and just all those strokes can be difficult to grasp and students may feel like it is pointless, necessary and just too complex to spend time on.
