Top Chinese Tuition in Singapore

What is Chinese? 

The Chinese language sometimes referred to as Mandarin, is a group of languages used by the Chinese in China and other parts of the world. The Chinese language is a member of the language family named the Sino-Tibetan family of languages. 

Traditional Chinese vs simplified Chinese 

In the world we live in today, Simplified Chinese is officially used in mainland China, Singapore, and the Chinese community in Malaysia uses Simplified Chinese as well. On the other hand, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan use traditional Chinese as their main form of communication.

Chinese characters’ appearances

The difference between traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese that stands out the most at first glance would be the appearance of the Chinese characters. As the name suggests, simplified Chinese have few strokes and is generally more simple to read and write. As for traditional Chinese, their characters tend to have more strokes and are more complicated to read and write as compared to simplified Chinese. However, there are some Chinese characters that remain the same in both traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese.

Review 1

Ms Wang has been teaching me since Secondary one. She is definitely one of the most dedicated, resourceful and effective teachers that I have ever met. Under her guidance, my proficiency in the Chinese language has improved tremendously. She has played an instrumental role in my learning of the language and preparations for the Higher Chinese O-level Examination. Personally, my favourite part of her lessons was our discussions about current affairs in Chinese. This not only improved my oral skills but also helped to raise my awareness about social issues. As a result, I achieved an overall A1 grade for the GCE O level HCL examination as well as a distinction grade for the O level HCL oral examination. Learning under Ms Wang was certainly enjoyable and I would highly recommend her!

Review 2

I came under the coaching of Miss Wang around mid-2019 after failing my school’s Chinese examination. Prior to this, I had been faring badly in my Chinese results. Initially, I was worried that I would be unable to brush up my skills in time for my O levels. After attending Miss Wang’s lessons, it is prevalent that Miss Wang is an experienced tutor who is in touched with the syllabus. Miss Wang spotted my weakness and helped me patch up the gaps I had by giving me exercises and relevant reading materials. She had also taught me handy techniques to tackle oral, just in time for my O Level examination. Eventually, I managed to achieve an overall A2 grade for my O levels, after just attending 5 months of lessons with Miss Wang. The results I achieved far exceeded my expectation! Without Miss Wang’s help, I definitely wouldn’t be able to achieve such a result. Miss Wang is definitely an epitome of a great teacher! Thank you Miss Wang!

By Tricia Koh, River Valley High School

Review 3

I used to struggle with my Chinese exams, with my grades regularly being Cs. In order to stop my grades from falling, and hopefully improve my command of the Chinese language, I decided to have Chinese tuition with Ms Wang since Secondary two. Her systematic way of organising her lessons allowed me to keep track of my progress and identify where I needed help most. She made use of many resources such as newspaper articles, videos on current affairs and relevant worksheets to ensure that while improving my Chinese proficiency, my horizons would also broaden. She also held me accountable for the homework assigned to me and motivated me to aim for better results. In the end, I managed to score an A2 in the O-Level Higher Chinese Examination, a huge improvement from where I started.

Review 1

I personally feel that Teacher Jocelyn is a very dedicated teacher. Each lesson is creatively crafted to cater to the needs of different students. Other than being enjoyable, her lessons are extremely fruitful. In the short span of a month, I have been exposed to different topics and received a lot of helpful notes to summarise my learning. Additionally, all of her lesson materials be it online or hardcopy includes effective techniques on exactly how to do well in every component of Chinese examination. As her student, I am grateful to have such a teacher. She is patient and gives her students a comfortable and conducive environment to learn. I look forward to her lessons and I am sure that under her guidance, every student will be able to achieve more than they believe they actually could.

By Abella Ang, O level HCL, Cresent Girls’ School

Review 2

Although I have not been with Ms Tan for very long, she has helped me improve my Chinese by leaps and bounds. I used to be afraid of Chinese since I was in primary school and my results were very low because I couldn’t speak fluently and write well. And because my school places so much emphasis on Chinese, I was struggling even more. But Ms Tan has helped me to become much more comfortable with speaking and writing in Chinese and I am now able to keep up with Chinese lessons in school much more. I have tried many types of Chinese tuition and lessons before, but none of them has helped me like Ms Tan’s lessons. My Chinese has improved greatly ever since I started attending Ms Tan’s lessons and I feel that I have become much more comfortable with Chinese with Ms Tan’s lessons.

By Larisse Kok, O level HCL, River Valley High 

Review 3

As a student of Jocelyn Tan and many other Chinese tuition teachers, I personally think Jocelyn Tan has been the best Chinese teacher I’ve seen. She has very easy and effective techniques on exactly how to do well in every component of Chinese paper 1 and 2. I have been struggling since I was in secondary school and I’ve always thought Chinese was hard, but after attending her tuition, it made the Chinese language look easy. Jocelyn Tan has helped me improve my Chinese vastly in a short period of time, which made me regret not having her teach me earlier.

Review 1

Our family has been with Youle Mandarin for coming up to three years.  Camille began at 17 months old and after seeing the amazing results, we enrolled her younger brother Peter to start at an even younger age.  We have been utterly impressed by their progression and development into confident Chinese speakers, readers and writers.  Most importantly, the children (as well as mummy and daddy) have enjoyed every minute of learning Mandarin with Youle.

We choose to stay with Youle Mandarin for the following reasons:

(1)  Quality of the teaching staff
Youle recruits only the best teachers.  Nan Nan Laoshi and her team are engaging, dedicated and passionate about teaching children.  They are very caring and have consistently kept us up-to-date with our children’s progress.

(2)  Materials and teaching methodology
Students are constantly engaged throughout each class and there is never a dull moment.  Every activity is well-planned and varied, including stories, music and movement, art and craft.  We particularly appreciate the support Youle gives to students to continue their learning at home with materials such as reading booklets, a book borrowing system and [email protected] online resources.

(3)  Value for money 
Given the very high standard of teaching and materials at Youle, we believe the programmes are great value for money and worth every cent.

Start your children on their learning journey with Youle as soon as possible to give them a strong Chinese language foundation.  Persevere and be rewarded with happy and confident language learners.  We wholeheartedly recommend Youle Mandarin’s programmes to every parent.

By Winny & Brad (Peter’s Parents)

Review 2

Youle is an awesome language school! We were desperate and looking to enrol my elder girl (3.5 years old back then!) as she was completely clueless in Mandarin and even abhorred it! Accompanied her for the trial class and she fell in love with the teachers and requested to enrol in classes! Gosh, that was a lifesaver. No turning back since then! She’s now 4.5 years old and speaks both English and Mandarin fluently! She enjoys her classes and the language, and also serves as an inspiration to her younger sister, who equally loves the teachers despite only going for a couple of holiday programmes. My girls are full of praises for the classes and look forward to learning Mandarin! I highly recommend this centre, and would always be so grateful for the patient, passionate and loving teachers!

By Amy Leong (Carina’s Mum)

Review 3

Since we moved to Singapore one of the things we wanted for our son Oskar was to be fluent in Mandarin.

Youle is helping Oskar achieve this by combining very efficient teaching methods which combine work and play. This experience allows Oskar to stay focused and truly enjoy the process of learning Mandarin.

Thank you Youle very much for taking Oskar to the next level and for enabling his (non-mandarin speaking) parents play a fun and interactive part in this journey!

Mdm Zhu’s Chinese tuition is very good and fun to go to. She helped me learn all the words and phrases that I did not know how to read/write at the start. She is very kind and gave me extra lessons before my exam. My Chinese results also improved a lot after going for her tuition lessons.

By Jerry Wee, Primary 2 Group tuition 

Review 2

I benefitted tremendously from Mdm Zhu’s Chinese lessons. I come from an English speaking family hence did not have enough exposure to Chinese. Mdm Zhu encouraged me to read widely and listen to Chinese news and songs. My interest in Chinese grew together with my grades and confidence in the subject. I would like to thank her for her great teaching!

By Ching Kiat, Secondary 3 Group tuition 

Review 3

Her Chinese lessons were engaging, effective and useful. She helps me frequently with my homework which I often struggle with. The class size is small so I got a lot of attention and help from her. I learnt study tips and exam tips to do well in Chinese exam papers.

Review 1

I commend this Chinese tuition center because they are effective and helped my daughter to deepen her knowledge and application of Chinese Language. Plus the place is well-maintained and suited for a fruitful interaction in every learning sessions. Good job, XZW!

By Bern Berry

Review 2

I am happy for my sister for trusting Xin Zhong Wen for her kids to learn and enhance what they have learn in school. Their Chinese composition and speaking skills were improved and we are grateful because we are not native Chinese speakers and my sister is having a hard time teaching them at first. The teacher that was assigned to her kids is so patient and she’s beautiful too. Thank s XZW for the big contribution for my nephew’s improvement.

By Glueck Bermudeza

Review 3

It is hard for non-Chinese speaking parents to teaching the Chinese language to our child. My kid is pressured to do well in school but he is really struggling with this foreign language. Good thing, my mother-in-law suggest to visit Xin Zhong Wen for help. The director that welcomed use is professional and she detailed to us the benefits that my child could get when we enroll to their tuition center. And yes, she is true to her words. The teacher that was assigned to my child is so patient. It’s been a year since we enrolled him to Xin Zhong Wen and there is definitely a big difference in his ability to speak in Chinese.

Benefits of Chinese tuition 

Additional notes and resources 

Additional notes and resources are a great source of help when students are preparing for their school or national examinations. More often than not, the additional notes and resources provided by their tuition centre or tutors are extremely helpful and help students get their precious sleep back without having to burn the midnight oil cramming for their upcoming examinations as they are concise and summarised notes. 

Tips and tricks for acing examinations

Tuition centres and private tutors are able to provide students with bonus tips and tricks on acing the examinations and sharing certain tactics such as time management and strategies on answering difficult questions, and spotting questions trends. 

Interaction with students from other schools

One of the main benefits of attending classes at a tuition centre is the opportunities given to meet and interact with students from other schools. The chances of getting more exposure to questions are higher as the tuition centre are most likely to collect past examinations paper questions from their wide range of students from different schools. Students from neighbourhood schools would also have the opportunity to learn from their peers who are from elite schools as the questions from the elite schools’ papers are generally more difficult than mainstream schools.  

Do you need Chinese tuition? 

Ultimately, it all depends on your needs and budget. Chinese tuition is not necessary for everyone. However, it can be an additional source of assistance for the student if he or she is struggling to catch up in school.

The location of the tuition centre is another important factor when it comes to choosing the right Chinese tuition. You don’t want to be wasting your precious time on travelling to and fro from tuition classes when you can be using the time to revise or rest. 

Affordability 

The price of the chosen Chinese tuition should not exceed your budget too much as it is not worth investing too much in Chinese tuition especially in the beginning when you are unsure if it is the right tuition centre or tutor.

Reviews 

Testimonials and results from the students themselves are the most helpful resources you can get your hands on when finding the right Chinese tuition. It would be a wiser choice to choose a tuition centre or tutor who has proven to be effective and recommended by their past students than the ones with not much or completely no reviews.

Should you learn traditional Chinese or simplified Chinese? 

Depending on where you intend to use your Chinese speaking skills, traditional Chinese or simplified Chinese can be more useful in certain circumstances. For instance, if you have set your sights on living in mainland China, then learning traditional Chinese would not be as useful and helpful for you. However, if you plan to settle down in Hong Kong or Taiwan, then learning traditional Chinese is definitely a must to communicate effectively with the locals.
