Hello everyone, my name is Wendy. I am a Chinese Singaporean, currently living in Bangkok, Thailand. I tutor Mandarin Chinese to adults and children from the age of 18 months onwards.
I am a native bilingual in English and Mandarin, and currently learns and speaks beginner Thai Language.
For toddlers & preschool children, my approach is to learn through play. We focus speech and audio recognition, using crafts, songs and dance to create an interest in the language for your child. Online learning for children can start as young as 4 years old, with adult supervision in 20-30 minute classes. Post lesson support is also provided to parents via electronic flashcards, worksheets and voice recordings.
For children and teenagers, I follow the Singaporean Chinese curriculum from Grade 1 to Grade 10, specially designed for bilingual children to grasp Mandarin Chinese easily and effectively. Your child will not only become a native speaker of Mandarin, but will also understand the Chinese culture, and history.
For adults, you can choose to start with a conversation course (that lasts about 8 - 10 lessons) using romanised Mandarin and slowly move onto reading and writing Han Characters at the intermediate stage. Unlike other courses that approaches with romanised Mandarin only, I believe read and write is necessary for your learning advancement.
Chinese Mandarin speakers can also practise English with me :) I have experienced with complete beginners to English for both adults and children.
If you would like to book a session outside of my available timings, please feel free to contact me.
