Programmes

How is your tuition programme different from that of other tuition centres?


Our tuition centre specialises in Secondary School Math and hence we understands best the most common mistakes made and the difficulties students face in understanding Math. We are then able to focus all our resources on helping students to overcome their challenges. Aside from that, these 3 key elements contribute to the successes of our students. 1) Proven Methodology We have developed a system of habits to help students learn math more effectively in a shorter period of time. As part of our programme, we train our students to identify cues in questions and apply a formula-core/concept-core routine to solve them. This methodology has proven to be successful in helping 97.5% of our students improve. 2) Rigourous and Structured Programme We have broken down the entire O'Level E'Math and A'Math syllabus into weekly programmes, whereby every topic is delivered in bite-sized pieces for students to follow easily. In addition, we also hold regular assessment to track our students' progress after every topic so that they are able to constantly identify their strengths and weaknesses. 3) Top-Notch Materials We believe that the quality of the materials play a significant role in helping students improve. We have invested more than 1000 hours into our materials and we are still constantly improving them to help our students learn Math more effectively.




How do you track my progress?


Homework is allocated weekly and completion of the homework is compulsory for all students. From your homework submission, we will be able to point out the concepts that you have or have not mastered.

We also hold regular assessment to track your progress as well as to get you seasoned to examination conditions. After every topic, we will hold a 25-30 minute Checkpoint Quiz to check on your understanding. As we review the quiz, we will highlight key concepts and common mistakes, you will discover your weaknesses and areas to work on. At the end of terms nearing major examination periods, we also conduct timed practices and mock tests to assess your aptitudes.




Do you offer one-to-one private lessons?


Our schedule is too packed to fit in one-to-one lessons, so we are currently not offering that. However, for students who are extremely weak and require additional help, we are always ready to go the extra mile and offer free one-to-one consultation sessions for them to clear their doubts.




Are group tuitions effective?


This question has too many factors affecting it to have a definite answer. The effectiveness of a tuition class depends on whether there is a structured programme, the quality of the learning materials, experience of the tutor and of course the engagement of the student in class. If your child is willing to learn and put in effort to keep up with the lesson, group tuitions will be effective with an experienced tutor, a structured programme, and effective learning materials.





Classes

Are all your classes taught by Ms Suzanne?


Yes, all classes will be taught by Ms Suzanne personally and in the event that she is sick, a relief teacher will be called in.




How is a typical tuition session like?


A session typically starts with reviewing the homework allocated the past week. All students are expected to attempt the homework to ensure effective learning when the questions are gone through in class.

The tutor will then conduct a lecture to cover new concepts and formulas. The content of each session has been broken down into smaller sub-topics and every sub-topic covered will be followed by a tutorial session for students to apply what they have just learnt. This content-application-feedback loop weekly will help students master the topics effectively.




Are replacement classes available?


Yes, replacement classes are available for all students.

Students who are unable to make it for lessons may attend any other lessons within the same week subjected to availability. In the case whereby you are unable to make it for any of the classes, you may access the recorded lessons and annotated notes to review the lesson.




Will there be lessons during school/public holidays?


Lessons continue throughout the year and the centre's academic break is in November. There are no lessons on public holidays and for lessons that fall on public holidays, replacement classes will be arranged on a weekend within the same week. However, if the public holiday falls on Saturday/Sunday, classes will continue as usual. You can refer to our academic calendar for more details. All dates for replacement classes will be made known to students 2-weeks prior to the class.




Do you offer trial classes?


Yes, we do. Trial classes are available all year-round.

Trial classes are available under the following conditions.

A trial class is free of charge if the student does not register for the class after attending the lesson.

If a student wishes to register for classes after the trial class, the trial class is considered as the first charageable lesson.
