Secondary School Math Tuition

During upper secondary school (in secondary 3 and 4), Singapore students have the option of taking Additional Mathematics (aka A Math) as one of their GCE O levels subjects. The subject has a wide variety of problems and topics as compared to the E Math (Mathematics) curriculum. Opportunities to think critically about mathematics are provided to students during Additional Mathematics. You will not only apply formulas; you’ll need to understand and problem solve how the formulas work and their permutations to solve more challenging mathematical problems. The Ministry of Education updates the syllabus of both subject regularly

Therefore, if students require additional help, it is imperative seek out experienced tutors who understand the mathematical concepts as well as syllabus to help your child excel in their exams.

FAQs for our Secondary School E & A Math Tuition 

Is Additional Mathematics easy?

At the ‘O’ Level, Additional Mathematics is a challenging course. Students sometimes perform well on in-class tests but struggle to finish their papers on time or have mental blockages while taking high-stakes exams like the preliminary exams or the ‘O’ Level exam. In general, the Ministry of Education also set Singapore’s GCE O Level syllabus is also more challenging compared to other countries.

Is A Math harder than E Maths?

Elementary and additional math has some significant differences (A-Maths). In contrast to A-Maths, regular math is complex but easy to grasp. E-Maths solves the same problem using simultaneous equations. Linear simultaneous equations provide a solution. A-Maths students must know their algebra well because it is a continuation of their E-Math curriculum. The answers are more complicated, so prepare carefully to avoid making mistakes.

E-Math is essential, and A-Math is advanced. It’s more complicated because you require more core knowledge. The complexity of E-Maths may cause certain pupils more significant problems than A-Maths because E-Maths contain multiple solutions to the same problem. A-Math is systematic.

How much does Math tuition in Singapore cost?

We offer 3 different kinds of tutoring for both E Math and A Math lessons: online, group classes and one-on-one classes. Each class will have a differing price point, we hope to offer affordable options for students of all backgrounds.

Group Online Lessons: $50 Per hour

Group physical Lessons: $65 per hour

One-0n-one Lessons: $80 per hour

How Experienced are Your Tutors

All our tutors undergo a rigorous vetting and training program before they are allowed to teach. All our teachers are well versed in the concepts and syllabus of Additional Mathematics and E Math.

Our teachers have a combined experience of over 30 years teaching Singapore students in lower secondary and upper secondary. Head tutors were previously MOE (Ministry of Education) train teachers as well. So your child is in good hands!

 

Is Additional Math Important?

Students in Singapore’s secondary schools with a solid mathematical background may study Additional Mathematics during secondary 3. This advanced course covers algebra binomial expansion, plane geometry proofs, differentiation, and integration. Additional Mathematics is required for H2 Mathematics and H2 Further Mathematics (for students entering Junior College). Students who didn’t take Additional Math at the ‘O’ level will likely take H1 Math in JC.

Every student follows the same curriculum from secondary 1 through secondary 2. The sec 1-2 Standard Mathematics curriculum builds upon the what students have learnt in their primary school, while the sec 3 & 4. The new concepts and skills taught in Foundation Mathematics are just a small part of what is taught in the more comprehensive Standard Mathematics course.

The material covered in O-Level Mathematics is expanded upon in the coursework for Standard Mathematics. The concepts included in the N(A)-Level 1 Mathematics syllabus are similar to those covered in the Standard Mathematics syllabus. However, this syllabus is a subset of the O-Level Mathematics curriculum. The mathematics curriculum at N(T)-Level 2 is an expansion of the mathematics curriculum at the Foundation Level. The O-Level Additional Mathematics curriculum builds on the material covered in the O-Level Mathematics course and provides a deeper dive into some of the most important concepts. Math at the N(A) Level is a selection from Math at the O(A) Level. O-Level Mathematics and O-Level Additional Mathematics give you the knowledge you need to be ready for H2 Mathematics at the pre-university level.

Mathematics is not required before college. The mathematics curriculum for H1 is an extension of the mathematics curriculum for the O-level. Some material from O-Level Additional Mathematics is assumed for the H2 Mathematics course. There is a natural progression from H2 mathematics into H3 mathematics.

Students may need to prepare for and excel in additional mathematics to take math at the H1 or H2 level in junior college. This is because both H1 and H2 math courses assume knowledge of other areas of mathematics. Students interested in the social sciences, accountancy, business, or economics will find H1 mathematics an excellent stepping stone. If you want to study these subjects in college, you’ll need at least a B in mathematics from the H1 level or an A in math from the O level. On the other hand, H2 math offers enough preparation for university-level physics, mathematics, and engineering. In addition, having a solid understanding of the additional mathematics and having done well in the subject might be beneficial for a kid who hasn’t decided what they want to study in college.
