Additional Mathematics taught from scratch in groups of 3 pax.

Singapore Math Tuition in small groups of 3 pax for Secondary Schools. Sec1 Sec 2 Sec 3 and Sec 4 Add Math tutorials are conducted by the experienced tutor (Mr Wong) of 20 years with a track record of A1’s in both Add Math and E Math. Singapore Mathematics Tutor for Additional Mathematics are 1.5 hours long with comprehensive lessons taught in accordance to latest Math syllabus in advance of the school curriculum. We teach from scratch, train our students to excel in Mathematics and prepare for their school Math examinations.

Sec 3 and Sec 4 Add Math tuition for IGCSE, GCE O levels, IP and IB Programme in Singapore with experienced A Math tutors getting A1 distinctions in our small groups 3 pax per class format. Add Math classes are conducted in a safe, high-tech classroom.

In our Additional Mathematics tuition, we use both hardware, software and social technology to help students to learn better and faster. A well-designed class always pays off in the long run, and we engineer our Additional Mathematics tutorials not only with the latest hardware but also communicate effectively with our students to get them to think effectively towards the ideas presented in math tutorials. We don’t only incorporate a physical class into our Additional Mathematics programme, we have virtual classrooms that boost tutorial times either in the form of Zoom lessons, WhatsApp Messaging or just a quick call to clear their problems.

We teach, and you learn and understand. Then we practice, and you get to memorise, and to the final effect, you score. Chronologically, calmly, resolve blunders by experiment. Learning from falling, and circumnavigating it during examinations. That is our Mathematics strategy. Add to that, there’s an open line to us via WhatsApp group chat 24/7/365 so our Math students can instantly clear their doubts. Need to get that last few marks in the Math examinations to get A1, not a problem. We are always at hand to teach it. By the way, we push for A1 distinctions in the examinations for all our students. If someone can do it, so can everyone else. Properly prepared and trained to do well in examinations are part and parcel of our Add Math tuition.

Singapore Mathematics tuition is designed for Secondary Math students that require a small class setting and increased attention from the tutor to achieve their best potential. Paying attention to the details and a thorough explanation of Math concepts are the basis of our Math tutorials. We teach by helping students to understand the topic clearly, not by feeding formulas and workings to achieve a solution. To do well in anything is to understand the inner workings and know the reason for each method employed.

We teach Math in the same way as an apprentice learns, here’s a tool for you, we teach and guide you, that’s what you can do with the tool and then memorise its uses. Then go on to explain in depth the reasons why, how, what and when they can use it. Practice, be adept, and master the new skill. Incorporate in the examinations. Score an A1.

Having a tool is not the end all. That is not going to help apprentices to excel in their craft. They need to understand the tools given to them and where to apply that tools in the order given to make it work. The complexities abound to fix something that is broken and to make it work again. The process of fault-finding requires understanding. It requires intimate knowledge of the cogs and gears meshing together to make the machine whole. So tools aren’t enough to fix the machine, the expertise in the machine is. That requires a lot of understanding. With our Additional Mathematics Tutor, we help you understand Add Mathematics before attempting the questions. We’ll also do sums together with you to help you figure out the sums step-by-step.

The constant improvement needed to keep ahead of the pack requires us to evolve our teaching skills to suit our student’s needs. Parents can be astonished at how much more work and complexity our education system has incorporated when they look at their kids’ textbooks. Times have changed. Schools teach at least 1 year faster now than 10 years ago. What used to be in Sec 2 is now taught in Sec 1. In fact, for A Math, some of the topics are from GCE A levels. Plus, it depends on the schools as well, with some advanced schools doing 2 years ahead of schedule to keep their students on their toes.

Our Singapore Maths lessons will be engaging our students to be learning Maths in a fun way and shall be beneficial to their school work. We don’t rest on our laurels as years roll past because we know what is taught is just going to go faster, so we adapt and we keep ourselves at the forefront of our Math classes. Teaching ahead of all schools is our priority and helps Math students to be confident and have clarity in school lessons. Knowing they have learnt the best techniques augments confidence. Having a candid mindset about what lies ahead helps us to plan and solve our Math student’s problems as we know the requirements for them to do well individually and to do Math with efficiency.

All roads lead to Rome, but some roads are just easier to travel on.

Because a little experience helps us to train our Math students smoothly. In our case, two decades’ worth of experience in getting the best performance from our Math tutorials.

The four pillars of learning: Attention, Active Engagement, Feedback and finally consolidation. 

Our Secondary Math classes will be a place for contemplation, to be taught Mathematics that will hold the attention of our students as we tell them our own experiences and how each topic has helped us in our own life. Mentoring students and being a hero with passion and achieving success are the best way to show them how to be winners in every endeavour. The knowledge that something they learn will be useful to them shall help them to focus and hold their attention to the Mathematica logic being imparted in Math tutorials.

Mentoring students to be good in Mathematics also requires us to be their confident ally and have them actively engage in our Math tutorials. Resolving doubts, fears and any variables during class helps our Math students to be calm and resolute. Power comes from the ability to control emotions, and to solve questions in a stressful examination. During class, students will get a chance to do sums that ramps up in difficulty until they get overstretched. Then we’ll pull a safety net out for them to fall softly and we’ll run through those questions. Every question gets its day, is explained to full understanding, and worked till no one misunderstands it. Active learning and making mistakes create an experience. Knowing where one can fall, and get it wrong in the safety of our Math tutorial emulates how one can go wrong in examinations before attempting one.

Fall now, learn from it, and get it right during the examination. That is the feedback loop that we want from our students. Being taught something new and alien, learn it, process it and then dabble in it. Ask questions when stumped, and share when they know. Evaluate, recalibrate and be correct at the end. To start from zero and end up heroes. That closes the circle of our future winners. A good habit worth keeping.

Kneading sourdough bread requires us to create a sourdough starter, with 7 days of cultivation before we have a good leaven. Then get all the percentages right, flour, 70% water, and salt and knead it at the right temperature. Kneading dough makes the dough stronger and with every stage helps the dough to achieve its finality of being bread. Get it wrong, and we start all over again. So many parameters to learn. So much patience and work to get flour into a loaf of bread. The bread certainly looks easy sitting there on the rack in a bakery. A $10 note gets you that good loaf. But what happened before that, is a lot of blood and sweat.

Studying is quite the same. Hard work and lots of practice create the final product. Being critical of mistakes, analysing skills, refining techniques and achieving the desired results. Finally be a good judge of their new knowledge to use when needed, especially during examinations. From a bedlam of complex mathematics and turn it into an organised proficiency residing in the tranquillity of our mind. That is the consolidation of our Math student’s learning process in our tutorials. Strong, nourishing, mindful sustenance to keep our brain in good health.

We teach, you learn and understand, then we practice, after that, you memorise, and finally, you score. Chronologically, calmly, resolve blunders by experiment. Learning from falling, and circumnavigating it during examinations. That is our Mathematics strategy. Add to that, there’s an open line to us 24/7/365 so our Math students can instantly clear their doubts. Need to get that last few marks in the Math examinations and get full marks, not a problem. We are always at hand to teach it. By the way, we push for A1 distinctions in the examinations for all our students. If someone can do it, so can everyone else. Properly prepared and trained to do well in examinations are part and parcel of our Add Math tuition.

Singapore Additional Mathematics tutorials are taught from scratch, with our A Math small group tutorials based on understanding Additional Mathematic topics presented in easy-to-follow tutorials engineered by the latest GCE O levels Syllabus. Add Math Classes are 1.5 hours long, with all Additional Mathematic materials provided including 24/7/365 support via WhatsApp/SMS with the tutor for the times that students need immediate rectification of math problems and clearing complex concepts that require further explanations. Inclusive Add Math tuition for our Singapore’s Secondary students.

Start at the beginning and culminate at the end. 

We teach everything in Additional Mathematics starting from the basics so that our students understand all required Add Math fundamentals and gain a good momentum before ramping up the ability to attempt advanced questions. We will work through the textbook and move on to practice questions from past year’s papers so that our students gain the expertise needed to get A1 in their examinations. Result-oriented classes are demanding but fairly paced, with students garnering essential study skills along the way to prepare them for further studies in university and the school of life. Carefully curated to individual students’ learning pace, class instructions are carefully graduated for students to complete their syllabus ahead of their examinations.

Additional Mathematics Small Group tuition is always taught in advance of school schedules. This shall allow our students to anticipate Add Math classes in their respective schools and beforehand, gain a deeper insight into Add Math topics ahead of their cohort. Being at the forefront of their school curriculum allows students to gain ground, do their school work with relative ease and have a good boost in confidence when attempting their GCE O levels. Disciplined coaching with our experienced guides will help our students to install all the required knowledge to handle Additional Mathematics questions in their examinations.

How can we appreciate it when we cannot sympathise with its use in our life?

Discovery, initiative and cultivating a love for mathematics in our Add Math classes, we explain to our students why they are presented with Additional Mathematics topics like logarithms, binomial theorem and calculus. Mathematical concepts that seem abstract, will conflate us if no one explains the reason to us, if we don’t understand what we are being taught and why topics like indices and integration are included in our school syllabus shall be unravelled in class and given a reason. Show whatever they learnt in Add Math has its actual use in everyday life helps us to lower the bar, and thus make Additional Mathematics as easy as A, B, C.

Relating what they study to their life helps them to appreciate Additional Mathematics better. 

The very first thing we realised in our 20+ years of teaching Add Math in Singapore, and the main problem for students attempting Additional Mathematics, is not the reason that Additional Mathematics is difficult and complex, but, it is because students don’t know why they are given the subject to do in school and in itself, makes Add Math not have a relevance to our life. Students need to know why they are learning A Math and how it can help them in their life. When they cannot relate their school classes to their everyday life, they won’t see a reason to incorporate these concepts into their psyche, as it feels like it’s not useful and quite irrelevant to their future endeavours.

Being current with a new 21st Century education requires us to reconstitute new fresh perspectives to a rather old subject, and to help the next generation to appreciate and learn Additional Mathematics, even if Additional Mathematics seems like a relic of the Industrial Revolution of the 19th Century. Evolving our classwork approach constantly by refreshing our teaching methodology and keeping our examples relevant to students as we invigorate our tutorials by keeping them fresh and pertinent to our student’s lifestyle, incorporating trending ideas to showcase Additional Mathematics as a solution to everyday life, at work or play will help students to see why their time spent doing Additional Mathematics can be rewarding and be a good investment to them.

It is not what you are studying, it’s the habits and skills we pick up trying to succeed in it. 

Additional Mathematics is one of the 4 titans of Upper Secondary subjects, (the other 3 pure sciences make up the other aggregates) and learning it helps students to pick up a lot of ancillary skills whilst attending its 2-year course and finally attempting the GCE O levels. Skills like perseverance, taking an active initiative in their knowledge, planning and adopting good time management skills and being able to succeed in their examinations whilst achieving a good work-life balance are important for our students to acquire at such a tender age. All these self-management skills are the accompanying attributes that students develop from just learning a new subject. To be given foreign knowledge to acquire, learning its intricacies by spending time digesting, working on it, practising and finally mastering the subject is a process that all students should turn into a habit. It is not what you learn, but how you succeed in it that makes winners in your career of life. Give a fish to a man he eats for a day, teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken

– Warren Buffett.

Achieving a good work-life balance is a cycle, not an achievement. We can always work harder and put in more hours, but there is only so much time and energy we have before we hit a ceiling of 24/7/365 and we realise there’s never enough time and way too much work to do. In primary school, we all probably had to spend a certain quantity of time to achieve a satisfactory grade. (It differs for individuals but it all works about the same). In Secondary school, there are a lot more subjects and the complexities work on an exponential gradient. The lower secondary start with a fairly gently linear gradient and then suddenly, in the upper secondary as we are further down the line, with multiplicities of topics and it goes straight up exponentially. That is where more difficulty cannot be equal to more time spent as we hit a maximum in studying hours. If we add hours of studies to every subject we learn, include that into the homework plus live our daily routines of eating, travelling, sleeping etc and we will hit that ceiling pretty quick. And, there’s still tertiary education later down the pipeline to consider so doing more is not going to be the silver bullet to this problem.

So how do we juggle all that when there is a quantifiable finite time against an infinite need for more time? Learn new time management skills and studying skills, upgrade the ability to memorise work instantly and keep it in long-term memory, and have the ability to prioritise and filter out distractions that consume a prodigious about of time.

It is akin to the idea of transportation. If we want to get to a nearby shop, we walk. Get into the city, MRT if convenient or flag down to a cab there if feeling a tad rich for the day. Going for a safari in Mozambique? Or a business trip to Dallas, Texas? Definitely, a plane, has to be a plane.

We can’t use the same transport for every situation and we are so used to picking out our mode of transport as we are so used to travelling, with that, neither can we use the same techniques used back in primary school to work on something more advanced in Secondary school. Neither does increasing the time spent as elbow grease to study harder helps as we will hit the ceiling of 24 hours a day in no time. That is going to backfire on students who will eventually run out of time or have to burn out in no time, or god forbid, both. We have to use technology to help us to study, also, maybe an upgrade of our brains is a good idea too. Here’s the good news, we have the technology and techniques to get distinctions, in tandem with the formative years of teens that provides the best time to upgrade their mental fortitude whilst their brains grow another 5% in size.

So in our Add Math tuition, we use tech and strategies to win this game. Getting A Math students to perform in the examinations is a matter of proper training and planning a course of action that suits their lifestyle. We believe that standardised testing is quite a good form of getting young individuals to become performers, noting that there are debates over disadvantages in such a system versus having more options and pathways towards the development of an individual. The core reason for standardised testing and a unified homogenous education is to get students to go from zero to hero, in a competitive environment while working on topics that are uncomfortable to them. Whatever doesn’t break them, only makes them stronger.

The goal of education is the development of utility, and the higher we utilise our faculties, the better we are at life. Gaining a good foothold of our capabilities early on and continuously expanding our boundaries helps us to navigate and succeed by instilling good habits and negating bad ones. A little push in the right direction every week causes a seismic shift in the development of students, as we evolve them to be sensitive to changes and come up with solutions as quick as possible.
