  • More About His Chinese Tuition Programme

    独特课程 有效教学

    Background 教师背景

    As a Singaporean and former MOE school teacher, Inspiren's Chief Mentor Mr Chang Jie Yu / Teacher Jaye has more than five years of experience teaching in MOE schools (Kuo Chuan Presbyterian High/Serangoon Garden Secondary) and in private practice. Holding a Chinese honours degree from NTU and NIE's PGDE, he has experience in teaching Chinese across all levels and streams, including a Higher Chinese graduating class (80% distinction) in 2017.

     

    作为前MOE学校教师的新加坡籍Inspire人首席指导员张捷宇老师(Jaye老师) 拥有超过五年的教学经验,包括政府学校(国专长老会中学、实勤中学)及私人家教的教学经验。南洋理工大学中文系毕业后,张老师入读NIE 毕业生教育课程 (PGDE),后在学校服务数年。学校教学期间,他执教于各个年级、源流的华文班,接触面深且广。2017年,他带领中四高级华文毕业班学生取得80%优等成绩的佳绩。

     

    He also marked O Level written examination scripts and examined pupils taking the O Level Oral Exams.

     

    在校期间,他也多次批改O水准试卷一和试卷二,并参与O水准口试考官职务。

     

    As a private tutor, Mr Chang had the opportunity to work with a even wider range of students, including those taking Higher Chinese (IP) at Hwa Chong Institution (HCI), Higher Chinese (GEP) at Tao Nan School, JC Chinese at St Andrew's Junior College (ACJC) and the IB/IGCSE syllabus (ACS/SJI). He also taught China Studies in English at the JC level (TJC/NYJC).

     

    私教期间,张老师有幸接触到更广泛的学生群体,包括在华侨中学修读直通车(IP) 课程的高级华文学生、在道南学校修读高才班课程的学生、在初级学院修读高中华文的学生,以及在英华中学、圣约瑟书院修读IB课程的学生。他也教授过高中年级的中国通识(英文)课程

     

    Unique Programme 独特教程

    After his experience both in the private and public sector education, and dealing with students from both English and Chinese-speaking backgrounds, Mr Chang found that students sometimes do not improve because they don't even understand the content in the exam paper, hence repeated drilling and paper-practising alone doesn't work.

     

    在张老师的私教及校教经验中,他接触过来自讲英语、讲华语等不同背景的学生。在这些经验中,他发现一些孩子无法进步的很大原因是:根本看不懂试卷里的篇章!试问看不懂文章,又怎么有效回答问题呢?因此重复操练练习卷,灌输“正确答案”,未必有效

     

    Differentiating from the norm, Teacher Jaye formulated his own set of teaching materials that can build a solid foundation in a child's Chinese learning journey. Calling it the "Chinese Strengthening Programme", it involves mulitple topics of learning, covering various areas to build on basic vocab, Chinese directional and locational expressions, verbal vs written forms of expressions, Chinese sentence structure, character strokes writing, amongst others, side-by-side schools' exam-targeted elements like cloze passage, comprehension and oral answering and composition writing skills.

     

    经过一段时间的研究与改良,Jaye老师破格创新地推出了属于自己的一套“华文强化课程”教学材料及教学法。这套教学法能够帮助学生打下更扎实的华文学习基础,为学习华文创造较自然、母语式的有利条件。课程的单元包括基本词汇、华文方位表达、书面语与口语的表达不同华文句式结构、汉字书写笔划等等,并与学校的考试项目如:综合填空阅读理解口试答题技巧作文技巧相结合而自成体系。

     

    All these done in a natural way, infusing in the lessons:

    课程目标包括:

    ✔Native understanding of Chinese words and expressions 母语式理解华文词汇与表达;

    Picking up of proper grammar and sentence structure 掌握正确华文语法及句式;

    ✔Acquiring skills on reading and how to learn new words and vocabulary independently 掌握独立学习新词语及阅读的能力;

    ✔Learning how to speak and write confidently 能够自信表达及书写的能力;

    ✔Knowing and including the elements of a good essay 写好文章诀窍;

    ✔Picking up the techniques and skills in answering comprehension questions 掌握回答阅读理解题目的技巧及方法.

    Why group classes?

    小班上课益处多

    Conducive learning environments

    优质学习环境⋆

     

    Our Tampines West centre location is furnished with air-conditioning,

    comfortable chairs and restroom facilities. It is also conveniently located next to MRT and neighbourhood eateries and convenience stores.

    我们淡滨尼西教育中心备有安静舒适的冷气教室、舒适桌椅、洗手间设施。

    地点也很方便——位于地铁站及餐饮店、便利店楼上。

     

    Centre/group lessons also help the child develop certain skills and aptitude

    in a way that 1-1 tuition cannot. We list 7 ways below.

    此外,小班上课也有以下好处:

     

    1. Interactive component 互动元素:

    We all know textbooks today are so different from those of yester-years. Today's education landscape also emphasises a lot on collaborative learning and peer sharing. Your child will most likely land in a job that requires him to work with many stakeholders and colleagues, and present in front of a large audience, rather than a solo work project. Groupwork skills and interactive engagement are essential skills that not only help learning, but also help in their future careers.

     

    2. Creativity 创意元素:

    What makes a child gain more knowledge and experience in the world? Hearing from peers and learning from others. While the teacher can do all the talking and cite all the examples, hearing it from someone of the same age group helps give the child a sense of relation and is something he can easily link and associate with. The brainstorming of ideas in the group sessions help spark creative juices and new ideas in their work of writing and even speaking.

     

    3. Less stress on the student 零压力:

    Would you rather your child feel 'pressurised to perform' or 'prove himself' during every 1-1 tuition lesson, or would you rather him go and 'enjoy a lesson in a group and have fun while learning'? All qualified educators would recommend the latter as a more effective and holistic approach to educating and acquiring knowledge and wisdom. Imagine yourself attending a Korean or Arabic lesson on your own, versus having a whole class to chat and mix and share learning insights with - the answer should be obvious!

     

    4. Leadership 塑造领导性格:

    21st century workplaces are all about leadership. So many corporate relationships turn sour due to lack of leadership effectiveness; and so many companies fail as a result of poor corporate management. A child who can learn to facilitate, support and lead, is way ahead of others in terms of personal and corporate qualities. And these can only be honed through the frequent exercise of such qualities in none other than the classroom.

     

    5. Attentiveness 集中注意力:

    We all know home is a place for shelter and rest - and alas, it is also a place for leisure and play! Sometimes, the home can just be a little too 'comfortable' to get children into the 'mood' for learning. An external envrionment that is conducive facilitates the learning process by setting the child's mind and soul right, and he has less 'lackadaisical' tendency.

     

    6: Peer learning and support 互相学习:

    This is by far the most important and relevant reason why group lessons are better than individual 1-1 lessons. Studies have shown that learning in a group, especially one with varying learning levels and abilities, helps all children in the class learn better: "Mixed-level classes can help everyone learn more. The lower-level learners will be pushed more than if they were alone, and the higher-level learners can solidify their knowledge by helping others."

     

    7: Quality guarantee and zero agency fees 品牌保证•价格合理:

    Most tuition agencies engage 1-1 tutors because it is easier to facilitate and they get to earn a lucrative 50% off the first month of a tutor's tuition fees. That is a substantial sum of money, and in fact gives the agency an incentive to help parents find more 1-1 tutors, even if it means parents keep changing tutors. Also as a result, tutors' quality is hard to control and monitor as agencies work on a one-off basis with these tutors. Whereas, for centre/group lessons, the teaching staff would need to guard his teaching and the centre is entirely responsible and accountable of teaching quality. Group lessons are also generally priced lower than 1-1.
