Singapore Math for Secondary Schools

To build a mind, powerful enough to excel in the chaotic world. To have the tranquil wisdom to navigate through life. To be strong in times of weakness. To be erudite to use knowledge wisely. Bukit Timah Math Tuition for Secondary Mathematics. 

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

In our Additional Mathematics tuition, we use both hardware, software and social technology to help us 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 boosts tutorial times either in the form of Zoom lessons, WhatsApp Messaging or just a quick call to clear their problems.

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 down, and circumnavigate 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. 

Bukit Timah Maths tuition are designed for Secondary Math students that require a small class setting and the 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, 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, that’s what you can do with the tool, memorise its uses. Then go onto explaining in depth the reasons why, how, what and when they can use it. 

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 tool in the order given to make it work. The complexities are abound to fix something that is broken and to make it work again. The process of fault finding require 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 Bukit Timah Tutor, we help you understand 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. 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. 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 Bukit Timah Tutor Math lessons will be engaging our students to be learning Math in a fun and beneficial to their 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 with our Math classes. Teaching ahead of all schools are 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 to 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 be a hero with passion and achieving successes are the best way to show them how to be winners in every endeavour. With 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, explained to full understanding, worked till no one misunderstands it. Active learning and making mistakes creates experience. Know where one can fall, get it horribly 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, 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 a 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, 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 a bread. Get it wrong, and we start all over again. So much parameters to learn. So much patience and work to get a 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. Hardwork and lots of practice creates the final product. Being critical to 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 the 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.
