Math Academy ® holds weekly JC H2 Math Tuition classes.
What can you expect from the class?
Classes are 2 hours long.
In the first half of the lesson, Mr Ian Ang will be teaching the topic, using his own set of notes. No pre-learning from school is required.
These notes are a culmination of years of efforts, summarizing the key concepts and examination questions, presented in a concise manner.
In the second half of the lesson, students will be provided with tutorials relevant to the teachings of that lesson.
These questions reflect the trend of examination questions in recent years, carefully selected from schools’ examination papers.
Students are expected to complete them before the next lesson.
Mr Ang will clarify their doubts and provide the students with a set of fully-worked out solution.
Students are expected to work hard together with Mr Ang’s guidance. See below for more information on what our ex-students have to say!
What our students say?
I love how complex mathematical concepts are simplified here in Math Academy! The lessons were easy to understand, and Mr. Ang will teach us how to break down the questions so that we learn how to strategize to solve different types of mathematical problems.
Mok Yue Min – Hwa Chong Institution
The summary notes given have helped me a lot as all the formulas and different types of questions you “must know” are written out clearly! Mr Ang is also extremely patient and never fails to answer my doubts during class.
Chieng Hui Xin – ACJC
I joined Math Academy in J2 after the June Holidays. Although it may seem “too late” for most students, don’t fret! The small class size and detailed explanations (lessons, fully worked solutions and exam notes) make it super easy for many to focus.
Yu Jun – Nanyang JC
He is patient and very approachable and has better equipped us with the proper concepts. This has improved my foundation in Mathematics and I saw drastic improvements for myself.
Ce Wen – Anderson JC
His replies are always v prompt and even though it is hard to communicate through the phone, he is extremely patient with me and makes sure that I understand the rationale behind my every step. With his help, I have managed to consistently understand concepts, work smart and develop an interest in mathematics.
Foo Hsien Weng – National JC
The notes are very well organized and structured, making it easy to follow the lesson. I feel that the classes has addressed my doubts with all the topics, including the high level questions. Mr Ang also makes it easy to understand and simplifying the difficult concepts.
Tay Kai Yi – Saint Andrew’s JC
The classes have taught me simpler and more effective ways to solve questions. Also, Mr Ang has taught me how to group similar questions, thus allowing me to use the correct approach to solve the respective questions.
Lim Yi Xin – Jurong JC
The small class sizes ensure that equal and sufficient attention is given to each and every student during the lesson.
Bryan Tan – National JC
Mr Ang’s notes are not only well organised but also in-depth. His summary notes also serve as useful tools to help us with our last minute recaps before our examinations.
Johnson Koh – Hwa Chong Institution
He also provides us with shortcut methods and summarised notes which really helped when I revised for my major exams. Thank you Mr Ang and Math Academy for the 5 years of guidance. I would not have gotten my A without your help!
Sharmaine Toh – Raffles Institution
It was very helpful how the lesson teaches the topic step by step, and how it highlights the common problems. Tutorials with similar questions and detailed solution was useful as it trains me through practice. Now I am more confident and comfortable with the topics covered.

Concise and Precise Notes
Mr Ian Ang has taken the time to produce his own copyrighted set of notes. Each chapter has been broken down into smaller parts that are easier to read and understand. All important concepts required for the A level exams are summarized.
Class Size: Small
Our JC H2 math tuition classes will only take in a maximum of 8 students. Our teaching style definitely allows for a bigger class size, however, we have opted to keep it small. This gives us the time and space to answer every students’ questions, which includes their homework problems from school.
Weekly tutorial questions have been carefully chosen with the following considerations:
- To reflect the myriad of questions that appears in exams
- To drill students with questions from past year school prelim exams
Fully-worked out Solutions
Model answers are printed and given to students for all tutorial problems. This helps students to understand the solutions better even after the tuition has ended.
Use of Projector and Slides
Efficient teaching is performed through the use of slides. Mr Ian Ang believes in the use of technology for efficient delivery of his classes.
Marking of Mock Tests
Mr Ian will select questions with important learning values and give these questions during tests. This will be done closer to the A level exams, to drill students on the important question types as well as to check on their presentation. This assures students on their style of presentation and prevents them from losing unnecessary marks.

J1 classes will start in the first week January every year. This is to provide students with headstart to the JC syllabus, to allow them to gain exposure earlier and to adapt well to JC life. Our experience tells us that students find the transition to A levels Math tough, largely due to a different and faster teaching style, with lectures and tutorials. Our students have found this headstart to be beneficial. GCE O level results are usually released by mid Jan.
