Why do students struggle with Mathematics?

Math is commonly found to be an intimidating subject. Especially in the higher levels of education in Singapore, Math is one of the most common subjects that students struggle with. This is mostly due to the fact that most mathematics tutors focus on teaching formulas and concepts, while neglecting the key differentiating factor: Identifying and solving the problem.

Why IP Math Tuition is necessary, especially in Singapore:

So why is tuition for math, or any subject for that matter, necessary in Singapore? Are the lessons in school insufficient?

The main reason why most students require additional tutelage is because the curriculum allows little time for individual help or tutelage outside of the classroom. Teachers are hard pressed to teach the entire syllabus as it is, and they have a limited amount of hours which prevents them from covering every individual’s questions.

An unanswered query in mathematics often leads to misconceptions or an error in understanding, which makes it more difficult to correct in the long run. Hence, supplementary maths tuition classes are a great help in making sure your (or your child’s) understanding and foundations are correct from the outset.

How are we different from other IP math tutors in Singapore?

Large JC H2 math tuition agencies and franchises focus primarily on expanding and making more income. As such, the risk of having lesser qualified teachers, larger classes and less individual time for you (or your child) runs high. Incidentally, this leaves them in a no-better position than attending the same lessons at school, twice.

Private mathematics tutors allow you (or your child) to have the attention they need to improve their understanding, and as a result, their grades. Amongst the private IP maths tuition teachers in Singapore, Timothy Gan is one of the most experienced maths tutors with over a decade of teaching experience (both public, and private education sectors.)

What some of our Students have to say

Mr Gan has improved my grades ever since I joined his class. His enthusiasm every week inspired me to face mathematics questions as one whom is my friend and not foe. With his clear and detailed explanation, I now understand topics better. Furthermore, he is patient with his students and pays close attention to his students’ progress.

Chang Wan Ning / Zhenghua Secondary School, from F9 to A1 for A math in 2017 Prelim Exams

I really enjoyed my math tuition with Mr. Gan as it felt very personalized. He would take the time to pick out questions for me to do, according to my weaknesses and providing extra hours whenever I needed it. With time being very precious approaching A levels, it was a relief to have flexible tuition hours to work around school timetable. Right up to the day before A levels, I could message him with questions to clear my doubts!

Natasha Yeo / A for H2 Math A level, St. Andrew’s Junior College

“Mr Gan is an enthusiastic and responsible teacher who worked closely with my son to facilitate and monitor his learning progress and understanding, and is not shy to answer my son’s questions outside of class. His teaching has helped my son improve in Mathematics from a C5 to B3 in half a year. Thank you, Mr Gan!”

Still Considering?

Here’s 2 more reasons why you should consider Tim Gan JC H2 Mathematics Tuition

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How big is the class size?

The maximum class size is 20 students.

Do you just go through questions during lessons? Or are there notes given out?

Mr Gan spends about 8 hours on lesson preparation for each 2-hour lesson; i.e. revising his notes, marking students’ weekly conceptual tests and writing suggested worked solutions for each practice question. He does not believe in just going through questions in his classrooms as it does not address the root issue of the conceptual barriers and struggles faced by students. He will chunk each topic into bite-sized essential concepts and teach his students which are the important points. He would then allow students to try similar questions. As the lesson progresses, the difficulty in the questions will also increase. He makes sure that the questions and concepts written in his notes are sufficient for students to revise for their examinations.

Are all math classes taught by Mr Gan?

Mr Gan conducts the lessons for Sec 4/ Year 4 O level/IP Additional Mathematics (A Math) and JC H2 Mathematics.

Lessons for lower and upper secondary Elementary Mathematics (E Math) will be conducted by Ms. Fanny.

Lessons for Sec 3/ Year 3 O Level/IP Additional Mathematics (A Math) will be conducted by Mr. Samuel Yapp.

Are group classes effective for my learning?

Short answer: Classes are more suitable for students who are self-motivated when it comes to learning.

Long answer: Mr. Gan spends, on average, about 8 hours on lesson preparation for every 2 hours-lesson. He seeks to improve his learning resources constantly and whenever he crafts his notes, he would ask himself, “Would my students be able to face all exam questions by only revising this set of notes?” Moreover, he uploads all handwritten solutions so that his students are able to revise on their own time. Mr Gan invests such effort in his lesson preparation because he values the hard-earned money of every parent who entrusts their child to him and strive to make every minute spent in his classes worth it. Moreover, he will administer conceptual tests after each chapter. This gives him the platform to assess his students’ learning and to provide constructive feedback.

How is a typical lesson conducted?

With many years of teaching in Singapore MOE schools, Mr Gan has the pedagogical knowledge and experience in the classroom. Before starting a new topic, he would give a brief introduction and an overview of the topic based on students’ prior knowledge. (knowledge learnt in E.math or A.math)

For each new concept, Mr. Gan would go through an example of it and students are required to attempt similar questions in the given notes. Questions in the notes would increase in difficulty and ultimately prepare students for exam style questions. While students are attempting the questions, Mr Gan would supervise their work and address their common misconceptions to the class.

He would encourage students to ask questions during lessons and strive to create a conducive and safe environment for students to ask questions. For A.math/IP math, a class test will be given at the end of the lesson and Mr Gan would mark their work to check for their understanding. The goal of the tuition programme is to ensure that students are ready to face exam style questions.

Is there any makeup class?

Yes. You could join other classes. Please SMS/WhatsApp Mr Gan for a makeup slot.

I’m a current sec 4/J2 student, my sec 3/J1 foundation is weak. What should I do?

You could possibly join sec 4/J1 classes concurrently to polish up your foundation. Apart from that, Mr Gan conducts topical revision courses during the school holidays for students to learn each topic in a detailed manner.

Do you offer 1-1 tuition class?

One-one tuition slots are highly limited. Please SMS/WhatsApp Mr Gan to enquire.
