This is one of the many photos of Alycia's Chinese school homework that I Whatsapp-ed to her Mandarin tutor yesterday. I am thankful that I have found a very accommodating, diligent and easy-going tutor for my girls. Alycia can Whatsapp or call her tutor anytime of the day and she would get a speedy reply from Ms M. With the help of this tutor, Alycia managed to score an A for her Chinese papers in almost all her previous tests. As for Sherilyn, she scored a B, which ain't too bad. Before the Mid Year exam, Ms M had to go through lots of hair-pulling and voice-raising sessions with Sherilyn. Ms M had forecasted a borderline pass for Sherilyn's Chinese test papers. I was not surprised too as I know Sherilyn's capabilities and interest in the Chinese language. So when she got a B for her Chinese test paper last week, I could not be happier :D Thank God too that Sherilyn scored 93% for her Math in Chinese papers. Thank God that she could recognize the key words in the Math papers :D
I think Sherilyn has plenty of room for improvement. She just needs to improve on her concentration power during classes and needs to put in a 100% effort in character recognition. In Chinese language, you need good memory to remember the characters.
