Ming Feng, Secondary 3 Student
Joined XueLin 2017
When Ming Feng joined XueLin, he was shy and kept to himself often. Additionally, he was also performing poorly in his oral examinations. He was reluctant to participate in class activities, and sometimes acted out. Undeterred by his behaviour, the teaching team at XueLin ensured he received just as much support and positive reinforcement during lessons, and constantly encouraged him to integrate with the rest of the class.
In two years, Ming Feng became increasingly cheerful as an individual, and gets along well with his tuition mates. Additionally, he now passes his oral examinations with flying classes, and the team at XueLin is proud of how far he’s come on his journey.
Luo Yuan Zhen, Secondary 3 student
Joined XueLin in 2017
Yuan Zhen studies in an international school and when she first joined XueLin, she lacked the confidence to learn the Chinese language. Her school textbook was difficult to understand, especially with regards to the Classical Chinese segment. The teachers at XueLin examined the situation, and decided to design a unique textbook exclusively for Yuan Zhen so that it’d meet her learning needs.
In two years, Yuan Zhen gained immense confidence in her ability, and more importantly, developed a deep interest for the language. Subsequently, Yan Zhen has topped her cohort multiple times for her Chinese examinations.

XueLin has helped me improve my Chinese grades tremendously. The teachers at XueLin are not only kind and patient, they will also go the extra mile to support our learning outside lesson time such as providing extra notes and practices. When I was in my P5/P6 years, my oral and composition skills improved so much after about a year of learning encompassing some intensive PSLE preparation lessons at XueLin. I became so much more confident when I speak in Mandarin and I have acquired knowledge of many good phrases and idioms that could help me improve my composition. I highly recommend XueLin to anyone who is looking to build interest and confidence in the Chinese language. Regardless of what the student’s current standard is in the language, I believe he/she will definitely gain and improve further under the guidance of XueLin. Big thank you to 冉老师! You are the best teacher.

Before joining XueLin, I was always getting a low ‘B’ for my Chinese in primary school. However, after joining XueLin in Primary 5, my results were improving and I attained an ‘A’ for Chinese. Even after primary school, I am still attending classes in XueLin. In Secondary 1 my Higher Chinese grade was a C6, but after attending XueLin, at the end of Sec 2, i got a B3 for Higher Chinese. The teachers in XueLin are patient and competent in their area of expertise. They help to explain clearly the phrases we are learning during class and will make sure everything is gone through thoroughly. Because of this, my Higher Chinese Paper 2 marks have improved. XueLin is highly recommended for those who are looking to improve their Chinese grades and will ignite their interest in the language as well. I would like to thank 刘Laoshi and 王 Laoshi in XueLin as they have helped me so much throughout my years learning there.
Ting Hou Mun, Secondary 3
Clementi Town Sec School. Joined XueLin since 2019
Before I joined XueLin, I was studying at a different tuition centre but I strongly disliked Chinese. I had no passion for the subject and I hated studying for tests. The lessons at the tuition centre were very structured and formal and I didn’t feel comfortable asking questions in class in front of everyone, which further strengthened my dislike for the subject. However, when I transferred to XueLin, my attitude towards the language improved tremendously. My teacher was patient and understanding, and made lessons interesting. Her lessons made me feel more motivated and more inclined to learn and work hard. The lessons were also less structured and less formal, so I was comfortable with asking the teacher for help. I enjoyed my lessons at XueLin a lot, and soon I saw an improvement in my results and my feelings towards the language. I am grateful for the centre for changing the way I viewed Chinese and for guiding me.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time learning at Xue Lin. The teachers especially 王老师 really brought out the best in me and helped me exceed my potential. I have never met a teacher so encouraging or who has believed in me more than I have believed in myself. The teachers are always willing to answer my questions and see me for a consultation. They have truly inspired me to keep working on my Chinese language skills even after taking higher chinese at Olevels and I owe my keen interest in the culture and language to XueLin .

美雅小学. Joined XueLin since 2017
My son is very hyper (ADHD). I sent him to a well known centre for 2 trial lessons rejected him as they said he can’t sit properly. I chance upon Xue Lin and sent him for 4 trial lessons, the Teachers and owners are all very sincere and I can really tell that they sincerely want to help my boy improve. Their class size are relatively small and I like that as teacher can better manage all the kids in class comparing to those big classroom setup. I am very thankful that they look beyond my boy’s issue(unable to sit properly, short attention span) and focus in helping my boy improve his Chinese. Thanks & Thumbs up XueLin!
Yan Ying, Primary 4 student
Joined XueLin in 2015
When Yan Ying first joined XueLin, she had no interest in the Chinese language. Even with home tuition, her grades were failing, and she found it challenging to listen to her teachers. However, the XueLin teachers were patient and encouraging, and worked with her to develop her interest in the Chinese language.
Within six months, Yan Ying began showing signs of change. She stopped her home tuition and began attending XueLin classes twice a week. She became progressively invested in her own learning journey, and began scoring over 70% in her examinations. Amongst all her subjects at school, she performed best in Chinese. Her sister joined XueLin as well at only Kindergarten 1, and they often attend XueLin’s special programmes together. Their parents are overjoyed with the progress, and hope to that their daughter’s newfound interest for the language would serve her well.
Rowan, Student of XueLin
Sec 4, ACS International 2020
I have been studying ‘O’ levels Chinese in XueLin for the past 6 months and my Chinese has improved quite a bit, I think that what separates XueLin from the rest is the teachers ability to teach the techniques to answer the question instead of teaching the answer to the specific question, that way the same technique can be used in a multitude of questions and still be applicable and flexible..
