## Secondary Math Tuition for E Math & A Math

## Secondary Math Tuition Singapore

All students start out learning Elementary math (E math), and as they progress to upper secondary, they get the option to take on Additional Math (A math).

In E Math, students learn basic skills and techniques that are vital for daily application in life such as calculating percentages, understanding probability, making buying decisions using the higher purchase scheme, and calculating compound interest. These basic skills will help with basic investment decisions in the future be it personal or for application in certain professions.

In A Math, students develop a higher order of thinking and move on to learn about advanced algebra commands, while acquiring mathematical concepts and skills in preparation of A-Level H2 Mathematics.

Any student who is considering taking H2 math in JC has to have strong foundational knowledge in Secondary Math, so planning what subjects to take in your secondary school curriculum is extremely imporant in this respect.

## Secondary A Math / E Math Tuition Teaching Methodology

We provide Secondary Maths tuition in Singapore that places heavy focus on the students’ understanding of the subject. Our focus is on thinking skills and the understanding of mathematical problems rather than memorizing of mathematical formulas.

Mr Daniel adopt a **hybrid of a 1 to 1 and classroom styled learning**. This allows different people to learn at their own pace. His teaching style is unique and is able to handle different kinds of learning styles thereby catering to suit every single student.

During the Secondary Maths tuition, Mr Daniel will first teach the topic and show the working of solving a typical Maths question, followed by practice on the students’ part, and then leave some time open for interaction before moving on to the next worked example.

He teaches everything systematically, step-by-step, ensuring that students have a good grasp of the skillsets required to solve the questions. Afterwards, he will go to every individual and clarify any doubts that they have. As a result, students find the tuition effective and encouraging as they gain more confidence in tackling the questions.

## About the Secondary A Math / E Math Tuition Tutor

#### Mr Daniel Yeo New Dawn Learning Studio Founder & Head of Math Department

Mr Daniel has been teaching Math, both Secondary Math and H2 Math, for more than 10 years.

Math has always been his passion and he strongly believes in specialization. Thus, Math is his focus, and he excels in it. Another strength he brings forth is his belief in painstakingly doing his own notes for his students, sheet by sheet, worked example, tip by tip by tip- totally comprehensive! It is his steadfast passion that a good lecturer can only deliver effectively when he walks through every step that students take. Solving Mathematical problems must be a piece of cake to any Math tutor but what differentiate Mr Daniel from the mass is that he delivers patiently and systematically without skipping a step, the Math concepts and solutions, so as to ensure that every student can grasp and understand the fundamentals at their pace before delving in depth. And when students gain confidence, especially the weaker ones, they will feel motivated to learn further, and excel. This is the essence of Mr Daniel’s teaching methodology and belief.

## Why Get Secondary Math Tuition in Singapore?

**Common Problems that E Math Students Face**

Most students in Singapore encounter difficulties in Secondary E Math where Algebra, Trigonometry and Pythagorean Theorem, and Vectors are concerned. This is why effective assistance is offered at New Dawn Learning Studio.

Take Algebra for example. We believe that to do well in Algebra, students have to start from Expansion and Factorisation which are involved in Algebraic chapters. This is where guidance is provided and reinforced. We will also help students by providing worksheets from Expansion, Factorisation, Algebraic fractions, solving Quadratic Equations to Simultaneous Equations.

**Common Problems that A Math Students Face**

Students doing Secondary A Math need to adopt a more structured approach when solving A Math questions as they are step-by-step in nature and formulaic. Common topics most students find challenging are Indices, Logarithms and Trigonometry. At New Dawn Learning Studio, we approach the A Math challenge by giving students an overview of the topic, i.e., “see the big picture”, followed by a breakdown of the question before applying the clearly defined steps to tackle the question.

Our Secondary A Math tuition approach helps students understand, anticipate and be more focused on what is coming in Secondary A Math exam papers. With conscientious practice, students can master this subject and fare well in Singapore-Cambridge ‘O’ level A Math examination. Furthermore, students enrolled in Secondary A Math tuition at New Dawn Learning Studio will be equipped with the effective techniques required to tackle H2 Math in JC.

**Secondary Math Tuition Teachers have Content Mastery**

Experience math tutors are subject experts who knows even the most complex topics like the back of their hand. This allows them to access a student’s level of understanding and also helps breakdown the topics in the most efficient manner for understanding.

**Structured Lessons Provide Effective Skills & Techniques to Answer Questions**

When students are struggling with Secondary Maths in school, it can be because of

1) Topics are covered too quickly

2) Not sufficient guidance is provided.

We understand that for difficult topics, more guidance is required. To ensure that our students are able to maximize their learning with us, our **Secondary Maths tuition** teachers utilise the following teaching approach:

• Lesson based off curated notes (with step-by-step guided solutions) that facilitate understanding of each topic.

• Tutorial practice questions in increasing order of difficulties to practise the newly learnt concepts (with opportunities of interaction with tutor for clarification)

• Summary Sheets – helpful for quick references or revisions.

Overtime, this guided approach will help students to build their confidence and reinforce their ability to learn the even tougher topics for Secondary Math.

**New Dawn Secondary Math Tuition Creates Opportunities for Revision**

The move from primary school to secondary school is a big leap – where the learning environments are vastly different.

Students have more in-depth learning required for Secondary Math. Also, teachers in secondary school do not have the luxury of time to keep pace with individual learning abilities. If the misconceptions that the students have for Secondary Math is not addressed, this could snowball into a bigger problem as time progresses – especially in upper secondary when the new topics require solid understanding of Algebraic fundamentals, taught in lower secondary mathematics.

New Dawn Learning’s **Secondary Maths Tuition** classes are structured to allow for this much needed revision and reinforcement:

• Weekly tuition tutorials to re-learn and practice concepts from school

• Quarterly workshops to focus on specific learning needs

• End of year revisions with specially curated practice examination papers to strengthen concept understanding and answering techniques
