Testimonials

Below are some testimonials written for my Cantonese, Mandarin and other classes.

Queenie is a fantastic teacher, she actually notice the different learning abilities of my 2 children and cater for their inidividual needs. I used to have another Chinese teacher but the children don’t seem to enjoy the lessons and tend to play up a lot. Even from the start, both kids did not have any trouble sitting through the lesson and showing a keen interest in learning. Queenie makes learning Chinese interesting by incorporating drawing, music, art and craft.We are really glad that we have a great Chinese teacher for our children.Ching,  Brisbane (Australia)                                                                                     February 22, 2012
See my comment about Queenie for tutoring my grandson in Mandarin. My two granddaughters, aged 9 and 11, had lessons in Japanese every day for the two weeks before Christmas while they were staying with me. It took a half of every day for the three of them to have their lessons, when we could have been doing a range of other holiday things. The children looked forward to this every day, and did the homework they were set without any reminders. Without any prompting they bought her a present, and wrote her thank you letters at the end of the two weeks. Each of these children has a different learning style, and Queenie adapted her approach for each one. This was money well spent: even if we dont have a chance to follow through (the children live in another town), their time with Queenie has shown them that learning a skill can be satisfying and enjoyableSee my comment about Queenie for tutoring my grandson in Mandarin.

My 13 year old grandson started lessons with Queenie while he was staying with me for two weeks before Christmas. He looked forward to his lessons every day, despite all the other things we could have been doing, and did the homework Queenie set him without reminders. Two younger granddaughters who were also staying with me did Japanese with Queenie, with similar responses. Each of these children have quite different learning styles, and Queenie adapted her teaching for each one. We will be making the most of every opportunity to have time with Queenie again whenever the kids come to visit.Camilla,  Brisbane (Australia)                                                                                     January 8, 2012
I had no Mandarin Chinese language ability before starting lessons with Queenie. Queenie structured the lessons suit my needs and after 14 lessons over 2 months, I am confident I can now communicate effectively in Mandarin at the level I require.Queenie’s teaching methods are extremely efficient and effective. She has a relaxed and accommodating teaching style and her lessons often included interesting insights into aspects of Chinese culture.Lesley,  Brisbane (Australia)                                                                                     September 28, 2011
Queenie has been teaching mandarin to my partner and I for several months now. We have thoroughly enjoyed each lesson and we were very impressed by the way each lesson was tailored for our needs. We believe Queenie’s methods are really practical and easy to progress.Dennis & Ada,  Brisbane (Australia)                                                                              July 27, 2011
Queenie has been my Mandarin teacher since March 2010. Over the course of the year I have acquired a sizeable vocabulary, I’m able to build sentences and converse across a decent range of topics. Queenie has really helped with my pronunciation through teaching me Pinyin. I have progress to reading and writing characters. My listening skills are really improving – late 2010 I tested my language ability in China, it was really fun, I could hear the locals talking about me, I had no problems interacting. If your wanting to learn Mandarin quickly and thoroughly I recommend Queenie.Ben Price, Brisbane (Australia)                                                                                  March 14, 2011
Queenie is a great tutor and has the personalities to be an even better one. Her patience in guiding me with the many difficulties I have with learning a language and emphasing on it really helped me in learning a language, with different students have different difficulties with learning a language and she does not seem to have any problems with fixing the problems I have. Her ability to meet the needs of an individual student is great. I have been learning Mandarin and Cantonese from her for about a month and I feel a large improvement in my ability in the languages. She also teaches more than just learning a language such as culture, which is an important part of being able to understand the meanings behind a language that is not clear to non-speakers of the language. Queenie is a great tutor and would recommend her classes to any one interested in learning any of the many languages she is able to teach. As I feel that I am learning in her classes a language plus more.Kevin JK,  University Student from University of Queensland                               2 January 2011
Queenie is a wonderful teacher who I would recommend to anyone looking to gain an in-depth understanding of the Cantonese language and Asian culture. Queenie possesses an outstanding knowledge of Cantonese syntax and her lesson plans function exceedingly well to transfer the complex commands of Chinese dialects to her students. As her lessons are rather flexible, I found them a great opportunity to ask plenty of questions and I was able to learn at my own pace. Queenie also did a fantastic job of catering to my needs – her excellent interpersonal and communication skills have allowed her to be very accommodating to her students no matter their level. She is extremely passionate in her teachings and this greatly encouraged me to further my learning outside of class. After studying Cantonese with Queenie for a year I am assured I have acquired the capacity to begin a new life in Hong Kong, with both the skills to speak confidently in Cantonese, and an acquired fondness of Eastern culture.Michaela Tam, Graduate Student from Brisbane  (Australia)                             November 17, 2010
Ni Hao!
Queenie taught me Mandarin Chinese for a little over 2 months. In that time, she put great efforts into tailoring my lessons for me, so that I could use my new skills in a clinical setting as a dentist. Having now arrived in Singapore, I have found her teaching extremely useful, and I can communicate well with my patients and in social situations. Queenie taught me not only the language, but also the attitudes and habits of the people of the countries of South East Asia. She also made the lessons both educational and whole lot of fun. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn a language.
