FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CHINESE TUITION
At FamilyTutor, we believe in a personalised approach to selecting our Chinese tutors. We conduct manual interviews to identify tutors who possess favourable attributes, such as sincerity, responsibility, and a positive attitude. Our goal is not only to impart knowledge and improve grades but also to make students and parents feel at ease with our Chinese tutors as if they are part of the family. We go the extra mile to ensure that our tutors are committed to helping students achieve their academic goals and feel satisfied with our service.
At FamilyTutor, we offer a diverse pool of Chinese tutors with varying qualifications and experience to cater to the needs of our clients. We have Ex-/Current School Teachers who are NIE (National Institute of Education) Trained Teachers with experience in MOE schools. Additionally, we have full-time tutors, many of whom are diploma and degree holders with at least five years of tutoring experience. They possess in-depth knowledge of the MOE syllabus, having taught a diverse group of students from different schools. Our part-time tutors, on the other hand, are students pursuing their undergraduate studies, contributing their expertise on a part-time basis.
At FamilyTutor, we ensure the proficiency of our Chinese tutors through a rigorous selection process and continuous monitoring. We conduct manual interviews to assess their qualifications, experience, and teaching approach. Additionally, we gather feedback from clients to evaluate tutor performance and ensure they maintain a high level of proficiency. This ensures that our tutors are capable of effectively teaching Chinese and meeting the learning needs of our students.
The assessment and tracking of your child’s progress in learning the Chinese language will vary depending on the tutor. Our Chinese tutors employ various methods, including regular assessments, quizzes, and practice tests, to gauge the student’s understanding and improvement. They may also use observation, verbal interactions, and feedback from parents to track the student’s progress and tailor their teaching approach accordingly. This personalised approach ensures effective learning and continuous improvement for each student.
5. How often are progress updates provided to parents regarding their child's development in Chinese language skills?
The frequency of progress updates provided to parents regarding their child’s development in Chinese language skills depends on the tutor’s communication style and the agreed-upon arrangement with the parents. Some tutors may provide weekly or monthly updates, while others may provide updates after each assessment or significant milestone. At FamilyTutor, we encourage open communication between tutors and parents to ensure that parents stay informed about their child’s progress and can provide any necessary support or feedback.
6. What resources or supplementary materials are used by Chinese tutors to support students' learning and improvement in Chinese?
The resources or supplementary materials used by our private Chinese tutors to support students’ learning and improvement in Chinese may vary depending on the individual tutor and the specific needs of the student. Some tutors may use assessment books, past-year exam papers, and other relevant materials to reinforce the student’s understanding of the subject. It is essential for parents to communicate their preferences and expectations regarding supplementary materials with the tutor to ensure effective learning and avoid any misunderstandings. FamilyTutor is always available to assist in facilitating this communication process.
Learning Chinese is considered complex compared to other languages due to several unique aspects of the language. Chinese is a tonal language, which means that the meaning of a word can change based on its tone. Additionally, the Chinese writing system uses thousands of characters, requiring extensive memorisation. The grammar structure and sentence patterns in Chinese can also be different from other languages, making it challenging for learners to grasp initially. As such, mastering Chinese demands consistent practice, dedication, and time commitment — this is where enrolling your child in Chinese tuition, be it home or online tuition lessons, comes in handy.

CHALLENGES OF LEARNING CHINESE
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 Chinese language comprehensively requires years of practice, which can be challenging for some students. Many struggle with time management, consistent practice, and the need for additional studies to acquire general knowledge. Lack of interest in the subject matter further compounds these difficulties. At FamilyTutor, our experienced Chinese tutors provide guidance and support, helping students overcome these challenges through effective time management, encouraging consistent practice, and fostering a deeper interest in the language.
For students accustomed to non-tonal languages like English, mastering the correct pronunciation and intonation of Chinese characters can be challenging. During oral communication, they may struggle to shake off the English intonation patterns, leading to difficulties in pronouncing words accurately. Additionally, recognising different vocabulary and paying attention to details in their listening comprehension can also prove to be a tricky feat. At FamilyTutor, our dedicated Chinese tutors address these difficulties through regular practice and interactive learning activities to improve students’ pronunciation and listening skills.
Recognising the various vocabulary and texts can be challenging for students due to the vast number of characters in the Chinese language. As a result, they may face difficulties in writing, comprehending, and accurately answering questions. At FamilyTutor, our experienced Chinese tutors understand these challenges and offer step-by-step guidance to help students overcome these obstacles and develop a strong foundation in Chinese writing.

Chinese may be a lot of students’ Second Language and it might be a pain at times. This is because English is already enough to learn, and then there’s still another language?!? 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.
