Reminder: Timings can be further negotiated. At the moment, I am only left with 3 home tuition slots and some group tuition slots.
For more info: 2015 Schedule
*Tue 2.30-4pm lower sec
*Wed 12.30- 2pm (lower sec)
5-6.30pm (upper Sec)
( Some schools like St. Joseph's Institution have early dismissal timing at 11.30pm on Wed)
However do not be dismay as it may be possible that my students withdraw from their home tuition due to unforeseen reasons like CCAs and school remedial lessons. Contact me nevertheless and you will be put on waiting list for that preferred timing.
Rest assured I will contact you once the slot is vacant.
*[In the time where you are put on waiting list, i will offer free Skype services to temporarily guide your child in whatever difficulty he/she might be facing; homework,project,test etc.]*
For a start, SMS me for advice on how to improve your child's Chinese grades.
I am also considering starting an "Oral and Exam Skills' program at your place during the June holidays. So fret not if you aren't able to get your lesson slot now!
P5-S4:*** ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR CHINESE 'O' LEVEL ORAL EXAM ***
2. Always keep an eye contact with the examiner
3. Put a smile on your face; it's not like the examiner's gonna kill you :)
4. Make a conscious effort to refrain from bad habits like shaking your legs. Doing so will give a bad impression of yourself to the examiner.
5. Read it aloud and with clarity, try not to 'press' your voice or you will sound like you're mumbling. You can prevent doing so by placing your paper more to the front and not so close to yourself
6. Be polite to the examiner; if he/she were to ask you a question and you don't catch the meaning, gently ask the examiner to repeat the question (e.g 'Qing Nin Chong Fu") For information's sake, "Nin" is a more respectful word to address the examiner
7. Refrain from using English words like "then", but instead, speak fully in Mandarin like "Hai You", "Hou Lai", "Er Qie", or "Jie Zhe Xia Lai". "Excuse me" can be said as "Bu Hao Yi Si". Speaking in English may also result in the deduction of marks
8. Skip the word if you don't know how to read it. For words that you're unsure of, find its closest pronunciation and say it quickly because the teacher might not be able to catch what you just said and will assume that you have read it correctly anyway
9. In a conversation, the first sentence makes the best impression. Try not to spend too much time thinking about what you should say on the first sentence. You don't have to think of really bombastic words or sentences to express yourself, just use simple words which you can say in confidence. Think on your feet, and you will be able to score.
10. Take note of a passage's mood (With a happy theme, read it as if you really are a happy person) and emphasize on important words. "Feel" what you say and don't read it with a single-toned voice.
11. Pause at regular intervals if a sentence is too long. Don't read the entire sentence or you may run out of breath. You can prevent doing so by reading the passage a few times (before you sit for it) and take note of its structure
12. Treat your examiner as a friend, and both of you will be able to converse and interact well with each other. The examiner isn't here to test your knowledge in a conversation, but instead, wants to see how well you can talk to him/her. This will in turn lighten up the tense atmosphere, so you can actually enjoy talking to the examiner.
