Learning Chinese can be fulfilling and demanding, particularly for those who do not usually use or practise it at home. Over the years, we have helped many students improve their Chinese language competencies and the skills to tackle their Chinese examination papers. We have also identified common challenges faced by students before they sought guidance from private Chinese tutors.

Some of these common challenges faced by students include:

Chinese boasts thousands of characters, making it challenging for students to recognise and use them correctly. This can lead to difficulties in writing, speaking, comprehension, and answering their Chinese examination questions.
The Chinese language relies heavily on tonal nuances, which can be challenging for those accustomed to English intonation patterns. Achieving precise pronunciation during oral communication, recognizing diverse vocabulary, and paying close attention during listening comprehension are frequent challenges for students.

Achieving fluency in Chinese requires years of consistent practice, efficient time management, and supplementary classes. Many students may find the commitment to daily practice difficult, particularly if they lack a strong interest in the subject.

These are the top challenges faced by most students learning Chinese in Singapore. Recognising these obstacles, our dedicated Chinese tutors will design a personalised curriculum to help your child tackle these issues. If you are hoping to improve your child’s grades and equip them with the essential skills for success especially in Chinese language, consider seeking help from our private Chinese tutors in Singapore, whether in-person or through online Chinese tuition. We believe that it is key to unlocking your child’s potential for excellence.

HOME CHINESE TUITION Frequently Asked Questions

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. Although our primary goal is to impart knowledge and improve our students’ grades, we also desire for our students and parents to feel at ease with our private Chinese tutors as if they are part of the family. We strive to go the extra mile to ensure that our Chinese 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 in Singapore. Additionally, we have full-time Chinese 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 in Singapore, having taught a diverse group of students from different schools. Our part-time Chinese 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 rigorous selection processes and continuous monitoring. We conduct interviews to assess their qualifications, experience, and teaching approach. Additionally, we gather feedback from our customers to evaluate the tutors’ performance and ensure they maintain a high level of proficiency. This ensures that our Chinese tutors are capable of effectively teaching the language and meeting the learning needs of our students studying in Singapore.

The frequency of progress updates provided to parents regarding their child’s development in their 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.

The resources and 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.

The Dream Chinese Private Tutor that Every Child Deserves

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.
