# Secondary Math Tuition, Singapore

Inspiring mathematical thinkers

Secondary school mathematics is very different from primary school as they test different skill sets that are expected out of the development stage of adolescents. Some may struggle because they do not understand the appropriate steps required to solve the problem. Hence, the Secondary Maths Tuition programmes offered at SGEducators set to imbue students with the knowledge and skills to excel in their mathematics exams.

## Objectives of the Sec Mathematics Tuition

What should students expect to achieve by the end of the programme?

Students that undergo the structured learning curriculum of the Secondary Maths Tuition featured by SGEducators will hone their mathematical skills with the help of our dedicated tutors who will guide them and help them overcome their learning obstacles. The aims of the programme are to build a strong foundation in maths, refine students’ mathematical skills, and develop students’ passion for learning.

##### Building strong mathematical foundation

Just like how the stability of a building is dependent on the building foundation on the ground, how well students perform in their maths throughout the 4-5 years time in secondary school is very dependent on how well they pace their study for maths. As such, the programmes in SGEducators work towards establishing a strong base for the students which will also complement the study of other subjects such as sciences.

##### Refine students’ mathematical skills

To make sure students can cope with the pace of learning, the programmes in SGEducators will be based on an instructional and guided teaching format. Tutors will impart exam-smart skills such as the ways to break down complex questions, time-saving strategies using heuristics, smart ways to check one’s work to minimise the loss of marks due to carelessness.

##### Develop passion for learning

As educators, the secondary maths tutors believe that students should not only be grade-driven but also constantly inquisitive and passionate during the process of learning. This will definitely benefit their achievements such as in their future pursuits at the tertiary level and in the working world. As such, the classes held in Secondary Maths Tuition are conducted in an engaging manner to give opportunities to allow students explore different possibilities through the use of mathematics concepts.

## Features of our Programme

Strive for Excellence and Excitement

The Secondary Maths Tuition classes featured by SGEducators make sure that there is sufficient exam preparation for the students while maintaining students’ high level of interest in the mathematics. The tutors use a wide range of resources such a summary notes, interactive media to ensure students can be serious in their studies while having fun at the same time.

### Revise well with summary notes

Students are provided with concise and succinct summary notes to make sure they can revise the important concepts in a glance in case they forget certain knowledge. The notes are well updated to adjust to the learning objective from the syllabus and latest shifts in examination trends.

### Access to questions bank for revision

To hone students’ exam-answering techniques and exam confidence, the programmes provide carefully picked questions that are modified from past year school papers or national examination. These will allay students’ fear of examinations which can be a big factor in determining the student’s’ results.

### Someone to listen closely and help

Students often try to seek consultation from school teachers when they are faced with difficult concepts in lessons. However, this can be difficult as not every school teacher has the luxury of time to sit down with the students and slowly explaining the concepts. However, students in the Secondary Maths Tuition classes featured by SGEducators are sure that someone will be there to guide them personally and understand their issues more deeply while helping them improve tremendously.
