testimonials from JC Math students
Mr Gan is a teacher who is full of passion to teach and is always willing to help his students. Even though I’ve only joined Tim Gan Math in Semester 1 of JC2, personally, I am very grateful to have him as my math tuition teacher as he helped me understand mathematical concepts a lot better and slowly regain my confidence back in math. I used to be a student who detest math due to the complexity of the subject but Mr Gan made them easier for us by using simplified methods to allow his students to understand better. He is a great source of motivation, especially during the stressful A Level period and he does his best to answer every query of his students and push them further in the very last lap — A levels. He also welcomes questions even out of class through WhatsApp, which is really useful for us students as we get to clarify our doubts as soon as possible. I am blessed to have Mr Gan as my math tutor and I’m extremely thankful for all the help he has given me throughout the whole A levels.

Cliché to say, joining Mr Gan’s classes was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my JC life. I have never once felt that his lessons were boring because Mr Gan always makes an effort to joke around in class and lighten the atmosphere. And needless to say, the sole reason I stayed was because I could learn new and easier methods to approach math questions and subsequently get better at math with Mr Gan’s new techniques and skills, along with questions in practice sets and worksheets that are organized neatly according to a particular section of each topic. Each lesson Mr Gan goes “Understand? Ok or not?” to make sure we follow through and are able to understand clearly what he has taught us which I honestly really appreciate as I have never seen this amount of dedication in other tuition centres I have joined. I am filled with gratitude for having such a great tutor and friend and I sincerely recommend joining Mr Gan’s classes!

“Mr Gan’s classes were always enjoyable and never boring. He always try to create a fun atmosphere in class so that we wont get too stressed up over math. He is also very patient and willing to help us even when we ended our class. He always tries to simplify the concepts using what we have learned from O levels. He also focuses on certain areas of the syllabus which schools often just skim through. I am really blessed to have Mr Gan as my math tutor.”
Genevieve Tan, A for H2 Math A Level, ACJC
“I have been failing my math and had great difficulty understanding the concepts and topics taught back in my first year of college. I was immensely grateful to have Mr Gan as my math tuition teacher. He was friendly and patient in guiding me through the challenging math concepts I could not grasp, using layman terms and drawings that helped me gained understanding. His great knowledge in math and that gave his students confidence in his teaching. He was also always prepared for any questions that I threw at him. His dedication to helping his students excel in math was remarkable. He welcomes questions and queries even outside lesson times. I am really fortunate to be able to have him as a teacher and a friend. My A grade for H2 A level in 2012 would not have been achievable without him.”
Zhi Qi, A for H2 Math, TJC
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

He would teach in a fun and interactive manner, making his lessons more enjoyable which aids in helping me to remember his teachings better. In addition, he would always answer all the doubts that i have out of class through whatsapp which helps me a lot whenever i encounter questions which i have difficulties solving it. I am really grateful for his constant guidance and patient teachings which made learning maths much more enjoyable!:)”
Xin Ping, B for H2 Math A level, Tampines Junior College
During my secondary school days, I changed multiple tuition teachers as I simply couldn’t find the perfect one for me. But then I chanced upon Tim and he was the perfect fit. He was really patient in explaining all the concepts from scratch, gave me really useful tips and shortcuts to doing questions which really helped me in my studies and overall helped me improve immensely and eventually do well for my A level mathematics though I was struggling initially. Greatly talented teacher and best tuition teacher I’ve had for my studies!
Hamza, A for H2 Math, Pioneer Junior College
“I was in dire straits after my prelims, getting a mere E for math, and without a proper grasp on the fundamentals despite A levels looming. However, thanks to Mr Gan, I was able to quickly internalize key concepts of the many chapters and at the end of it, could enter the exam halls with confidence. What helped a lot, was the fact that Mr Gan was very approachable. There was no teacher-student barrier within us; I could consult him on any queries, and he would answer them without hesitation. Every 2-hour session with Mr Gan greatly advances the progress of my A level revision. Rather than sticking to a rigidly structured timetable, Mr Gan is able to recognize my needs and plan his teaching accordingly. Mr Gan is a great educator. Without him, my A grade for A levels would not have been possible.”
Terence Chou, A for H2 Math, Hwa Chong Institution
“A dedicated tutor, Mr Gan invests his time and energy to understand his students’ needs, and tailors his teaching style to suit each student, be it by repairing their Mathematics foundation or providing support. He seeks to employ various teaching strategies in the classroom to better cater to his students, which works in favor of students with differing learning styles. Making a point to keep his classroom size small, Mr Gan ensures individualised and undivided attention to each of his students. A small class size also meant that students could choose to work either individually, in teams or as a whole, which made group discussions more beneficial, and class time overall more enjoyable. Course-wise, Mr Gan possesses the knowledge and expertise as a Mathematics tutor. Mr Gan’s teaching aligns well with that of the A-Level syllabus, and often goes beyond as well, though appropriately so. He chooses to pick out and zoom in on parts of the syllabus where schools often overlook or skim past. Students thus benefit greatly from his years of experience in teaching. Beyond the four walls, Mr Gan shows himself to be a tutor who takes genuine interest in his students’ lives and displays both care and concern for the safety and wellbeing of his students.”
Crystal Ng, A for H2 Math, National Junior College
“I was taught by Mr Gan for slightly over 3 months and i feel like I’ve learnt a lot from him. I didn’t do very badly in math to begin with but without A math from secondary school, there’s still lots of things where I’m at a disadvantage. Mr Gan spent time to slowly explain concepts to me and to teach me the things that most people would have and should have already known. It was great having him as my tutor :)”
Michelle Tan, A for H2 Math, Jurong Junior College
“A very fantastic teacher as he is able to simplify concepts that I was not able to understand in school. he also teaches us useful techniques in solving problems like integration, his techniques has helped me to greatly improve my integration. He provides us a wide range of questions from easy to very tricky ones, the exposure has allowed me to calmly approach math problems as I would not be stunned by it. he is also a very funny person and livens up the class, math tuition by him has never been boring for me. There’s surely something to learn from him every lesson and also about his bad jokes at times. I really enjoyed the 2 years of math tuition I spent with him, he is great! :)”
Zhao En, Jurong Junior College
I first chance upon Mr Gan’s math class on instagram. After reading through the testimonials by his previous students, I decided to take on a trail class. Not to lies as a retake student, I do experience many difficulties when attempting the question. Mr Gan will never failed to attend to students like me patiently, making sure that my queries and doubts are cleared so that I can continue attempting the questions. I am very glad to be in Mr Gan’s class as he created an environment, whereby you can ask questions freely without getting judged. He always opens up the floor to ask him questions, so fret not to ask. He often ask his students if they have any questions and if we do have questions after class, he is always approachable! Mr Gan is definitely an approachable, genuine and the knowledgeable tutor you are looking for.

Among many who have thought me math, Timothy Gan is a teacher that stands out from the rest, he is not only a teacher but a friend who would adapt to my learning style and teach me according to the best of my abilities. He makes sure I understand what i’m doing and most importantly recap things with me to clear up remaining doubts. He would even take his time off to teach us either by meeting us or through phone messages. I’m really grateful for him being my teacher and also guiding me in the subject. Thank you for everything!
Amin, Innova Junior College
For me, I am quite picky when it comes to Math tuitions. I have my own way of learning math. Since I entered JC Math became a daunting subject. Then I came across your tuition through word-of-mouth. The 1st free trial lesson helped me to see if your teaching style catered me. I was still lost as it was vectors but I decided to just try your lessons. As the days passed by I knew that my decision wasn’t wrong. We 2 had some similarities when it came to solving questions and understanding questions, this helped a lot during my learning process as you could relate to my thought process. There was other different type of learners as well in my class and you did put in a lot of effort to cater to all our needs which most of the tuition teachers do not do. You have made us look forward to our lessons every week. Your tuition class was filled with silly and basic questions that you have never failed to answer. As a class, we were always having a negative mindset towards our school paper but you were always there cheering us up. I have personal messaged you when I was really feeling terrible about my math but you have never given up on me. Most of the tuition teachers only teach for the sake of teaching but you go an extra mile by listening to our personal stories and giving advice for us. This is really appreciated by us during this tough journey in JC. You treat us more like friends rather than just students. This bond made me be more open to asking silly questions without being ashamed of it. Even though JC math is really tough you have made it enjoyable to learn it.
Pavithra, Anderson Junior College, A for 2017 Promo
Mr Gan makes learning easier and more fun. Math used to be something that I didn’t get at all but after his lessons I started getting the concepts and could apply them. He simplified tedious formulas and thought of alternate methods to help us. Now I can do math in a more confident way and can even help others with their doubts.
Sangari, Anderson Junior College
Mr Gan‘s lessons are always very informative and enjoyable as he teaches new maths concepts to us in a different way from school teachers. this makes maths easier to understand and actually passable!! he will go the extra mile by providing extra lessons out of his own free time during our exam period and even answering maths questions on whatsapp during ungodly hours.
Louise Koh, Anderson Junior College
timganmath has boosted my confidence in math greatly, through simplification of many complex ideas and formulas. Mr Gan also provides numerous ways to approach a question, allowing me to choose the one that Im most comfortable with during application. I used to be very fearful and unmotivated to do maths assignments, but now, I am capable of doing a substantial amount of questions, and as for the challenging questions, at the very least, I know how to approach it and know what its asking for. Hence, I rate timganmath a solid 2018/10.
Mai Goh, Anderson Junior College
Mr Gan’s tuition is very effective in helping me understand the concepts of the topics as well as the various ways of answering the different types of questions. This has helped me greatly in my math tests and examinations in school. Also, Mr Gan is a patient and dedicated teacher who always answers students’ questions, even through text!
Clarisse Koh, Pioneer Junior College
Mr Gan saved me from dreadful Math. He never failed to make math enjoyable as his explanations always make the concepts very clear and easy to comprehend. He is always super patient with my quarries (because I am super blurh sorry sir >.<)and never failed to answer our questions. His notes were extremely clear cut for revision and even when first introduced to the concepts. Mr Gan always prepares material based on topics that we are unclear with beforehand to ensure that lessons are super-efficient but yet extremely fun that you don’t even realise that you did 2 hours of lessons. It extremely productive and I am super grateful for the past years with Mr Gan. Thank you so much for the lessons and helping me improve my math!
Ruth Rachael Mathew, ACS (International)
When I first came into the class, I disliked the subject Mathematics greatly, every time I came across it, I would try to avoid it. Initially, I was doing very badly in school for Mathematics and often failing the subject. However, after I joined Mr Gan’s class, I found my interest for the subject to deepen and my grades have slowly improved as well. Mr Gan’s classes are always fun and interesting and he never fails to make us laugh whilst still managing to help us in clarifying our doubts. It is amazing how much he can accomplish in these lessons despite me not having a strong mathematical foundation and not paying attention in school. I am very grateful for Mr Gan and is definitely a great teacher.
Keat Wee, ACS (International)
I was at the verge of being retained for maths so i joined Mr Gan’s class about a month before promos. I managed to improve by 3 grades for promos! Thanks Mr Gan for your patience and professionalism when teaching maths!
Ruo Yang, Pioneer Junior College
Mr Gan is a patient and dedicated teacher. He always encourage us to ask questions when in doubt and is a very approachable teacher! He tries to explain concepts in a simplifed manner so that it is easy for us to digest and apply the concepts to the questions. Moreover, he teaches us various techniques of answering different questions. Thank you Mr Gan for being such an awesome teacher!
Ying Shan, Pioneer Junior College
Mr Gan is a engaging and compassionate teacher. His lessons are always easy to understand and he will always make an effort to check on his students and ensure that all his students knows how to do that question. Also, he does not mind answering our questions after lesson time. Furthermore, the materials he provide in the lessons are useful as it includes all other JCs questions and this exposes us to more types of questions which i think is very useful.
Alicia Chai, Pioneer Junior College
Mr Gan is very good at what he does. He is friendly, understanding and finds ways to make us understand the concepts easily. I could see improvement in my test grades and my attitude towards solving math questions within the first 2 lessons itself! The place is also very condusive to learn in!
Nandetha, St Andrew Junior College
Mr Gan explains the concepts very clearly and his notes are well organised according to the type of questions for each chapter. His classes are lively and it makes learning maths more enjoyable. He does not hesitate to stay back after class to explain other doubts or questions that we might have. I have definitely seen an improvement in my school work in just a month of joining the tuition. I would highly recommend Mr Gan to anyone who is looking to join a math tuition!

testimonials from SEC/IP students
Mr Timothy Gan has rekindled my interest in maths. His mathematics classes are always active discussion, due to the way he teaches and students can just clarify with him. He will make sure that our doubts are clarifies and that we fully understand the topics. His checkpoint tests are definitely helpful, especially for people who seldomly revise maths like me.
Stewart Tay, Whitley Secondary School, from F9 to A1 for 2017 O Level A.Maths
Mr Gan is a dedicated and fun teacher to be around. Before joining his tuition class, I was failing both A and E math. Due to heavy CCA commitments I missed several whole chapters of lessons and it was hard for teachers in school to find time slots to give me consultation. This resulted in me having huge knowledge gaps. In order to help me catch up, Mr Gan made time to have clinic sessions with me, where he answered my doubts about certain topics. In addition, he allowed me to stay back after class to go through school homework or tests that I was having difficulty with. These helped me tremendously, eventually leading to me getting distinctions for both A and E math. Thank you so much for your hard work Mr Gan!
Phoebe Tay, Nan Hua High School, from F9 to A2 & A1 for 2017 O Level A.Maths & E.Maths
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
Mr Gan is a friendly and extremely patient teacher who takes pride in teaching. I’ve been failing Mathematics for all of my secondary school years as I really disliked the subject and doing it was a chore to me. However when I joined Mr Gan’s class, his passion for Mathematics was contagious and I soon came to love and appreciate the subject as well. Mr Gan will take the time to explain even the simplest of concepts just to ensure that you understand it, and his classes are never dry at all. With his help and neverending patience, I eventually obtained an A2 in Mathematics for O levels. 🙂 Keep it up Mr Gan!!
Gladys Jiang, Commonwealth Secondary, from D7 to A2 for 2017 O Level E.Maths
Mr Gan is a really patient teacher. In class he makes sure that he will attend to students individually and also have tests to make sure that we have understood the concepts. Throughout my 3 months of Journey with Mr Gan, I’ve been able to improve along the way and his classes are always something that I look forward to as it is fun and interesting!
Rachel Neo, Nan Hua High School, from F9 to B3 in 3 months for 2017 O Level A.Maths
I came to Mr Gan barely passing math, and now, I have an A2 for O levels. Mr Gan explains math concepts v clearly, such that I could understand even though I previously had issues understanding them. That was v helpful since I had problems wrapping my head around what was taught in school. Mr Gan adjusts his teaching methods depending on the student, n if he realises that u r weak in certain topics, he tries to identify the problem n suggests extra lessons for further improvement. Under his guidance, I hv improved drastically n I am v happy to have been his student. Mr Gan is a jovial person who has good communication skills, and is also v caring. He goes past his designated hours as a tutor n would answer questions that one sends to him, this was especially helpful during the O lvl period when I was working on papers n couldn’t afford to wait a whole week until the next lesson to ask for help. Would I recommend Mr Gan as a tutor? Yes, he’s my no. 1 recommendation! Sign up for his class before he becomes too famous! 🙂
Rachael Lim, St Margaret’s Secondary School, from C6 to A2 for 2017 O Level E.Math
“I’ve been to countless tuition lessons, met plenty of teachers but my experience with Mr Gan will always stand out. Maths & Science has never been easy for me to understand but Mr Gan consistently looks for ways to simplify things and make them relatable. At the end of every lesson, he would made extra sure that we understood the materials taught. Mr Gan has gone the extra mile countless times, making extra time to answer our questions after class, and even out of class. When he comes across interesting materials that will help us to learn better such as video tutorials or extra worksheets, he would enthusiastically share them with us. Mr Gan has always dedicated his time to us and we knew we could count on him for extra help and clarification.”

His teaching has helped my son improve in Mathematics from a C5 to B3 in half a year. Thank you, Mr Gan!”
Eng Yeow’s Parent, A1 for Math 1 and A1 for Math 2,
Raffles Institutions, Year 4 IP Programme
“I was failing both Math and Additional Maths really badly. I think, on average, my grades would come up to no higher than a E8. After going through the material with Mr Gan, I began to understand both Maths and Add. Maths better. He simplifies the topics better than my teachers in school and with his help, I was able to jump from a E8 to a A2 in a short amount of time. Tuition with him is also never boring. He keeps our 2 hour session lively and fun so going to class is never a drag. He also takes genuine interest in our lives. Slowly but surely, Maths became my favourite subject. To sum up, Mr Gan is an amazing teacher who cares for his students. I’m glad to have had him as my tutor.”
