Looking for H1 Chinese Tuition?

With only a few months to prepare for the A-Level H1 Chinese examination, finding the right H1 Chinese Tutor for JC1 students has never been more critical.

Importance of H1 Chinese Tuition

H1 Chinese is a compulsory subject for Year One Junior College (JC) students who did not previously take Higher Chinese in Secondary School. The content in H1 Chinese is more difficult than Secondary School Chinese as H1 Chinese requires students to have a deeper understanding and analytical ability when answering questions in comprehension or writing essays. 

Also, the oral component requires students to interpret an issue and speak confidently. The A-Level H1 Chinese examination is taken at the end of the first year in JC. Students must do well in this subject to receive good rank points for gaining entry to their preferred course in University.

Common problems faced when studying H1 Chinese

Priority on H2 Subjects

In prioritising content-heavy H2 subjects, students may choose to spend more time on these at the expense of H1 Chinese. However, doing so may jeopardise the student’s entry to his or her preferred university course, especially if the student ends up failing his or her H1 Chinese.

Limited Preparation Time

The time between receiving their O-Level results to entering Junior College, and preparing for the H1 Chinese A-Level is only a matter of months. Moreover, students will be busy adapting to the new school environment, making new friends, and participating in Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs). As such, students may misjudge the amount of time they have left to prepare for their H1 Chinese exam.

Weak Foundation in Mandarin

Students who did not take Higher Chinese in secondary school or failed to meet the criteria during the Higher Chinese O-Level examination, will have to take H1 Chinese in Junior College. They often struggle with H1 Chinese because of a weak foundation compounded by the difficulty of the subject. H1 Chinese may also become a sticking point for English-educated students as having a weak foundation means that they will need to invest greater time and effort to brush up on their Mandarin.

What can H1 Chinese Tutors offer?

Strength and Stability

In identifying students’ strengths and weaknesses in Mandarin, H1 Chinese tutors seek to build on strengths and shore-up on weak areas through curated lesson plans based on individual learning needs. The H1 Chinese tutors work to ensure that students can grasp difficult terms and concepts, learn from their mistakes, and avoid repeating them during the examination.

Tools for Essay Writing and Comprehension

The comprehension passage in the H1 Chinese examination requires students to elaborate on difficult phrases. As such, H1 Chinese tutors seek to ensure that students understand difficult terms and concepts, while exploring proper structures for answering comprehension questions. Furthermore, H1 Chinese home tutors will equip students with techniques to write well by exploring various essay topics and how to generate ideas for content. This is in addition to employing a richer vocabulary and a variety of sentence structures to describe experiences and express opinions.

Dependable, Expert Help

From writing compositions and comprehension to oral and listening, H1 Chinese tutors are well-equipped with the skills and expertise to help students with all aspects of H1 Chinese. The H1 Chinese tutors are proficient in explaining difficult topics and content to students. Moreover, being able to rely on their private tutor for dependable help and support serves as a confidence booster for students.

Benefits of H1 Chinese Tuition

Listening comprehension is one of the aims of H1 Chinese. To comprehend well, students must be able to understand and make sense of different forms of Chinese media. H1 Chinese tuition offers support to students (especially those with a weaker foundation in Mandarin) through a wide exposure to a variety of Chinese media. Aside from robust tutor-student conversations and discussions, students will also be exposed to broadcasts, daily news, and current affairs in Mandarin.

To listen well, one must also learn to respond well. As such, articulating and communicating well are other aims of H1 language integration. Being able to communicate with people fluently about life and current affairs is a vital skill to have especially in personal and professional spheres of interaction. 

H1 Chinese tuition focuses on helping students speak clearly, correctly, and naturally with the right expressions. In addition, the H1 Chinese tutor is able to put forth certain themes to practise having a healthy and invigorating verbal exchange of views with the student.

H1 Chinese tuition provides students with an alternative avenue for seeking clarification. School teachers may not always be available to answer questions. With a H1 Chinese tuition teacher, students have the flexibility of a second opinion to clarify doubts, bounce ideas, and to recap what they have learnt during class.

Studying hard alone does not guarantee results. Instead of simply slogging hard and hoping for the best, H1 Chinese tuition offers a more incisive and strategic approach for students preparing for the H1 Chinese examination. Students are taught to study smart by understanding what is required of them at the H1 Chinese examination. In applying tried-and-tested strategies for success, they will benefit too from a more constructive use of time.
