    you may want to try Tien Hsia, they follow MOE Chinese syllabus very closely and prepare the child for all CAs and SAs. But the child need to do tien hsia homework weekly and reading

    Both my kids are in Tien Hsia and so far I find the classes help ing them alot . The teachers are Native from China.

    My colleague told me Berries is equally good, you can take a look at their website below :

    Did your kids have an interest in chinese b4 they started at Tien Hsia? Mine is totally disinterested and unmotivated cos we dun speak it at home and his childcare did not emphasise much on chinese. Wld like to get him started to prepare him for P1 next year. Are the kids daunted by the workload given at Tien Hsia so much so they lose their interest?

    I didn't prepare my elder girl in advance . Taught her when she entered P1 on my own and both had a hard time. So I sent her to Tien Hsia and she improved tremendously . So for my 2nd boy I started him earlier at K2 and now he's coping well with chinese. Both hate chinese initially and don't read chinese books until today but exam wise they are still doing quite well, except for oral .

    Tien Hsia emphasis alot on text book content , spelling and they do " lang du" and oral as well but guess is not good enuf if the kids don't read during their own time. Sometime they do complain as there are Spelling almost every week but feel it's good practice for them. Other than that no much of homework.

    Is $20 per hour reasonable for 1-to-1 tuition?

    I called up a chinese tutor who charges $20 per hour for one to one tuition. SHe's a native from Beijing (S'pore PR) and has been teaching chinese to primary/secondary kids for 3 years. Wonder if her rate is reasonable cos Tien Hsia's weekend charges is $16 per hour (class of 10 students though).

    I'm not sure about the market rate for chinese tuition but $20/hr sounds reasonable to me taking into consideration that you cut down on the travelling time and your kid will get 100% attention .

    Maybe you can get some feedback from the parents of her existing students .

    I'm also looking for a Chinese tutor with very good tract records.
    My kid will be in P5 next year.

    Sent him to Tien Hsia before, not good for him as the class was too big.
    Teachers though OK did not follow up on weaker students.

    Hope you can share if you know of good tutor.
    Don't mind small group or individual.
    Location - Toa Payoh.

    I am a part time tutor that would be teaching chinese.
    I have achieved distinction in chinese for my o level exams.
    I have no experience in teaching but I have coached my 12 year old brother in chinese since young.
    I try my best to keep lessons fun and engaging to maximise learning potential. Hope this would be the help you need for your child.
    I can conduct a free trial lesson to gauge ur child's learning needs and whether he can adapt to my teaching style.
    There is no harm to try it out since it is free.:)
    Rates are negiotiable.
    Thanks and have a nice day.

    Email for enquiries.:)

    There's a tuition centre beside Yishun JC (block 729) where the teacher studied Chinese Studies in NTU. She's very good with the kids and the kids all like to attend her lessons. Her classes are also not too big. Maybe you all can consider that tuition centre if it is not too inconvenient for you.

    Hello! I am a very experienced chinese tutor who have been teaching for 15 years. My roots are from China but I have been living in Singapore long enough to become a Singaporean. I live in Tampines and I give group as well as one to one tuition at my home or your home, whichever you would prefer. I am able to teach students ranging from P1 to JC and I also have students under me for close to 10 years. I have experience teaching in top schools and neighbourhood schools and my strengths are teaching comprehension, oral and composition skills. Interested parents can contact me at 96208824. Thanks!!
