Frequently Asked Questions

Here we answer some of the queries that students have about our programmes

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

Can I consult Ms Suzanne on questions from my school?


Yes, of course! We highly encourage students to ask questions! Asking question is the first step to improvements. All students get the personal numbers of Ms Suzanne and they can consult her any time.

We also highly encourage students to do up more questions beyond classes. Practice makes perfect, and we want you to know that if you are willing to make the extra effort to do so, we will support you fully.




How are fees calculuated?


Tuition fees are billed at the start of each month based on the number of lessons in each month. For students who enroll in the middle of a month, the fees will be pro-rated accordingly.




What is included in the material fee?


The material fee of $50 will cover all learning materials used in class. This includes all our Topical Series, MYE/EOY Revision Packages, checkpoint quizzes, mock tests and Cheat Sheets.




What is the withdrawal policy like?


Time and money is of essence and we do not believe in locking you down. If you find that we are not a good fit, we will fully support your decision in finding an alternative that works for you. If you child wishes to withdraw from his/her class, you may contact us directly and instant withdrawal will be accepted. There is no mandatory notice period but please note that there fees paid are non-refundable.




How can I catch up on my foundation?


Although it sounds cliche, but the way to master Math is really to keep practicing. For students with a weak foundation, we strongly encourage you to do extra practice at home to build up those concepts. You can consult Ms Suzanne for a study plan based on her assessment of your weaknesses and she may also allocate relevant worksheets from those topics for you to practice. But above all, the most important aspect is to ask questions! Asking questions help to clarify your doubts and from there, you could discover more misconceptions that you have. We will be here giving you the full support you need. Students can consult Ms Suzanne anytime, simply snap and send a photo of the questions to her. From our many years in teaching, students have found this to be extremely useful, sometimes you may even catch Ms Suzanne at 11 p.m. doing a WhatsApp consultation with students!
