Testimonials

Mr Adrian is an extraordinary teacher. Apart from making students master shortcuts and tricks, he guides all his students to be able to appreciate and even love mathematics. Thanks to him, my A-math has improved from F9 to A1 in the ‘O’ levels.

– Mohamed Rizwan S/O Sahabudeen, student
St Andrew’s Secondary School

Mathematics has always been a problematic subject for me and I used to never fail at failing badly. Constantly scoring E8 for E Math and F9 for A Math. However, after taking on math tuition with Adrian, my grades improved greatly. Adrian is extremely patient and has a knack for explaining complex concepts so that they are much easier to understand. Under his guidance, I managed to score an A1 for E Math and an A2 for A Math for my GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations.

My son, Jing Hng, was struggling with both A Math and E Math earlier last year when he started Secondary 3. He failed both subjects terribly in his mid year exams (F9). That was a wake up call and I decided that he needed math tuition to help him cope with the subjects. After just one term of tuition, Jing Hng’s grades started to improve. At the end of Secondary 3, he scored A1 for both A Math and E Math.

Adrian teaches very well. I am able to understand easily and the method he uses is really simple. He explains very clearly, ensuring that everyone are clear on how to do the questions. I have been coming here since Secondary 3. I enjoy coming to his classes as he teaches his lessons in an engaging manner. He played a great part in ensuring that I get A1 for my A Math. I have to really thank him for that. He has great knowledge on how to answer tough questions.

– T.Theepanraj, student
Dunman Secondary School

After a couple of months under Adrian’ tutoring, I have learnt a lot as his teaching style consists of many in-depth explanations. He had allowed me to fully understand difficult topics by connecting with me and pointing out my mistakes. He had used my strong points to my advantage and strengthened my weak points while teaching me. And he is also patient when I do not understand a topic. Little by little with every lesson, Adrian plays a big part in helping me unlock my potential towards Math.

Dylan Lim, student
-Anderson Secondary School

The worksheets Adrian gave us were plentiful and challenging, and notes were provided as well. I really like how Adrian is very flexible with his classes – if we had questions with regard to our own work from school, he would be all to happy to help. On top of that, he never fails to reply any queries I have about my work that I may send to him between tuition classes. Before having math tuition with Adrian, I felt unconfident in my math ability as I had difficulty answering many questions in worksheets given to us in school. With Adrian there to help and supplement my learning, I managed to learn a lot more and grasp difficult concepts. Thank you for your guidance, Adrian! You were always friendly, patient and willing to help – for that I am very grateful!

Frequently Asked Questions

About Teaching

What is your teaching style?

I believe very strongly in building a strong foundation for math. A strong foundation in math helps to make it easier for students’ to learn other topics, and also builds their foundation in the subject.

I teach each topic from scratch. I will work on the concepts and the understanding of it at first, moving on the applications and more complex questions as we come to the end of the topic.

The lessons are catered towards developing sound concept understanding for every topic, as well as teaching useful techniques to be used in problem solving. Students will be required to apply the concepts to different situations and will learn to use their knowledge to solve problems.

Are there materials provided?

Yes, I provide in-house notes and materials. The materials are meticulously prepared. I have spent a lot of hours to choose questions that facilitate learning in an easy and gradual process.

Are there any homework?

Yes there are, but they are optional. If students do the assignments, I will mark them. I will highly encourage students to do them because it will help clarify any conceptual errors that students may not think they have. And it gives the student an idea of how well they have grasped the concepts. From past statistics, students who submit the assignments do very well in school.

Can students ask their own questions outside of the class?

Yes, students can whatsapp/send me their questions, and I will provide them with solutions and explanations. I encourage students to do so because they learn much faster this way.

About Payment

How is payment made?

Payment is to be made one month in advance, meaning that fees paid in March will be for the month of April. Payment is to be made monthly, on the first week of month.
Payment can be made using cash, cheque, bank transfer, PayNow or DBS PayLah!

About Missed Lessons

Are there any make up classes?

There are no make up classes during normal school terms. If a student can’t make it for a lesson, he/she can come half an hour earlier for the next lesson and I will explain to him/her the concepts taught in the previous lesson. I would encourage students to try to make it for all lessons, and not to miss lessons if they can help it.

There are, however, make up lessons during the holidays, as many families will want to go on holidays and there are also various school activities going on as well.

Other Questions

Is group tuition suitable for me/my child?

Group tuition are usually suitable for students who are motivated themselves. They are may not be scoring in exams due to not fully understanding what is being taught in their school, or they may want an additional source where they can learn more.

If you/your child is not motivated and needs alot of ‘pushing’, then one-to-one tuition may be more suitable for your child.

1-to-1 lessons are also suitable for students who wants to clarify their doubts about their current lessons immediately. Tutors can customize the lessons closely according to what the student is learning in school.

Why is my child not scoring well despite having math tuition?

Tuition provides the student with the resources to do well. They supplement the lessons taught in schools. Ultimately, it is the students’ efforts that will determine his/her grades. For example, putting a student in a top-notched tuition centre will not guarantee the student getting an A1 if he/she has an adverse reaction towards the subject and refuses to participate fully in the tuition lessons.

Also, the ‘chemistry’ between the tutor and the child plays an important role. Children learn much faster when they trust and are willing to learn from the tutor. If the child finds it a chore to attend tuition, chances are the tutor and the child is not a good fit.
