Previous generations learned that the ‘three Rs’ were vital in school and life. For today’s young people however, the three Rs of Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic are taken for granted. The new skills we are told that children today need are the four Cs ie Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication and Creativity. Find out how to nurture the four Cs in your kids from this article.

3 Tips on How English Speaking Parents can find Mandarin Tutors

Guest Post by Adeline Kwok, parent of Matthew, aged 9 and user of AskBee 

Adeline never imagined that finding the RIGHT tutor for her child was going to be so hard. Raised in English speaking households, both she and her husband can communicate well in Mandarin but that was the extent of their Mandarin usage and capabilities.

Like every other “banana” parent out there, they wanted their child to do, know and have more than them. Which meant enrolling him in a Chinese school and trying their best to help him with his Mandarin homework. They realized they couldn't help him beyond Std 3! In this article they share their journey of finding their child his first Mandarin tutor via AskBee.

AskBee is an app that helps primary and secondary school students to learn better, by providing them with live, on-demand access to a personal tutor. As the first online tutoring platform to offer an in-app video call feature, AskBee enables students to get one-on-one, real-time guidance from qualified tutors. Just like in real life – or possibly better.
