In Singapore, Maths tuition is highly popular as Maths is one of the key subjects in the syllabus. Starting from PSLE Maths at the primary level, E Maths/A Maths/IP Maths at the secondary level, and finally H1/H2/H3 Maths at the Junior College Level. A strong foundation in mathematics is crucial for moving up the next level. An experienced Math tutor will be able to guide the student to master the concepts and techniques needed to do well in Mathematics at each stage.

Most students’ problems in Maths fall into these categories:

1) Lack of knowledge / experience (Solution: Work with an experienced Math tutor who will highlight what is important, and also practice the typical questions that will actually come out in the exam)
2) Carelessness (Solution: Learn tips to check their answers for mistakes)
3) Cannot finish paper (Solution: Learn tips, shortcuts to speed up their working)
4) Forget the formula / method of solving (Solution: learn tips and tricks to remember the formula)
5) School Exam is difficult: Top schools set their exam papers at a much higher level than the ‘O’ Levels or ‘A’ Levels. Even at the top IP schools or JCs, it is common to have 20%-50% of the class to fail the Math exam. Serious training and effort is needed to ace the internal school exams.

Reason 1 (Lack of knowledge) is the most fundamental, as students need to have exposure to the types of questions tested, rather than seeing them for the first time in the exam hall. Engaging a Math tutor will help to go through those essential topics and questions beforehand, which may not be taught in school at all. In school, teachers often have just enough time to cover the basics. What is actually tested is often much harder than what is taught in the school classroom.

Reasons 2-4 are also important as they cost many marks which are lost unnecessarily. Working on carelessness, speed and memory tips can easily boost 10 marks or more, raising your grade up one notch. There are special methods for checking for careless mistakes which are more effective than just checking through one’s working from start to end. Also, speed is not just writing faster, there are certain methodologies that enables students to solve a question in a fast and efficient manner.

    Hi mathtuition88,
    I chanced upon your blog from a google search and i found it really resourceful. Just like you, im pursuing a math degree in NUS soon, however im quite skeptical about the practicality of Math in the real world. Sources say that data modelling and financial analyst are among some of the real-world applications but how true are they? I hope you can share with me what gave you the impetus to pursue Math and how practical are they.

    • Hi Yong Qiang, thanks for visiting my blog. Math is really practical, especially in this modern age. Some applications of math are cryptography, image processing, data analysis, in addition to your valid points on modeling and financial analysis. Math related jobs have consistently been ranked the best jobs in America, you can try googling “best job mathematician”. Good luck for your future endeavors and do pursue your passion.

        Math is used in IT like Google search algorithm (Linear Algebra), Big Data Analytics (Algebraic Topology), Encryption (RSA Prime Number), Economy, Finance, Actuary Science, Medicine, etc.

  6. Thanks a lot for the blog. I have a P1 girl whose hobby is to do assessment books but doesn’t like reading story books. She has completed P2 assessment books and doing P3 assessment books. With advises from her school principal, I decided not to let her progress with assessment books and I am really lost as to what to do with her. I shall try out the books that you recommended.
