Selina was recommended to me by one of my friend whose son had been enjoying taking lessons with her for a few years and was very satisfied with the level he had achieved. My children are French and respectively 16 and 13 year-old. They have been learning Chinese in school as a 2nd language and needed extra-teaching hours to improve their speaking and writing skills.
My son used to say that he hated Chinese language and was really unhappy to have to learn it. However, since he has started with Selina, slightly more than a year ago, his level has not only improved substantially but now also finds Chinese interesting and do not complain anymore before going to class.
His school Chinese teacher was impressed by his progression and participation in class.
I really recommend Selina; She is an excellent Chinese tutor.
I enjoyed 16 hours of one-to-one Mandarin classes which were tailored to my level of Mandarin (rusty, primary school level) and interests. The teacher was patient, good at listening and explaining, and responded to my interest in polishing my Mandarin whilst introducing a new level of technical and modern vernacular which I sorely lacked. By using various techniques, e.g. reading conversations, increasing relevant vocab in bitesized batches, looking at current news videos or documentaries, reading news items and blogs by the younger set, I was enthusiastically reintroduced to the modern world of Mandarin. We even looked at current websites. Much of my practice material was very relevant to the current affairs. Everything we worked on was recorded and shared with me via Google Docs. Excellent.
MandarinPlus has given me the confidence to communicate in Mandarin to my colleagues, patients at work, and with my friends. The lessons are well structured and they have flexible timings you can adjust to, depending on your schedule. The teachers are very dedicated to giving you the most out of the 1 hour or 1.5 h lessons and will make sure you understand everything before carrying on to the next lesson.
My teacher, Lilian W, is very credible, patient and willing to go the extra mile making sure my pronunciation etc. is perfect. The one-to-one classes are worth the money as they provide quality content. Certification is also given once you have completed any of the levels.
Selina has been of immense help to our family. We do not speak any Mandarin at home, yet our children, who are born in Singapore, have been studying Chinese since a young age and needed support in their learning. Selina’s professionalism, defication and immense patience have really made a difference. She is extremely good at adapting her teaching style to the children’s personality and at finding ways to make her lessons interesting and productive, without ever compromising on quality.
I worked with Selina for a period of two weeks in preparation for my undergraduate Chinese final. She was extremely helpful in ensuring my correct pronunciation and developing my conversational skills. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs to improve fast in a short period of time.
Selina who is the founder of Mandarin Plus is an excellent teacher. The lessons are adapted for my needs. She is patient, professional and fun. I highly recommend her to anyone! Feel free to get in touch with any questions.
One of the very few, if not the only school, where student’s progress placed first. Not only the course can be tailored to student’s needs, but the schedule. I think, the teacher’s approach and attitude to teaching makes the whole difference.
As a native English speaker taking up Mandarin can feel overwhelming . Selina laoshi who is also the founder of Mandarin Plus and Lilian Wang the teacher of Mandarin Plus have provided me with much needed direction, confidence and expertise to reach a level of progress I ‘m delighted with. After just one year I’ve already taken my level 3 exam, and I’m reaping the benefits in my day to day usage. Fantastic Chinese lessons at a reasonable price !
I have been taking private lessons with Selina and her teachers for more than 2 years now and it has been exceptional. I am speaking from experience having been a student at other ‘larger’ mandarin schools in Singapore and I can honesty say that the dedication that the team here to their students is unconditional. Every teacher is highly qualified (not just part-time student teachers who need the pay check): the teachers genuinely have an interest in your learning and celebrate your progress with you. It is not just about what’s in the book but also Chinese culture, the difference between spoken Chinese and written Chinese and all the nuances that you would not get in a typical class.
I originally only wanted to learn a bit of Mandarin to be able to communicate the basics with others. I started with HSK 1 and I am now learning HSK 5. I have completed 2 exams which I certainly did not feel that I could so at the beginning of this journey. It was only with the encouragement of Selina and her teachers that I am able to do this. I have been recommending Mandarin Plus to all my friends and colleagues. 我需要努力，但我很感激他們的鼓勵。謝謝！
