Math Academy has a long standing history in teaching mathematics. We began in 2001, educating students for the love of mathematics, under the name of JolynMathsHub. Despite the growth in the number of students, which largely stems from student/parent recommendations, we have always maintained our small class size. We try hard, together with the kids, to do what is possible for them.
Hear about their success stories from the list of student/parent testimonials below.
Ms Jolyn always takes a proactive approach to giving feedback regarding my son’s progress in class. My son has shown tremendous improvement and produced stellar results at O levels! Ms Jolyn made it possible!! Thank you very much for all your guidance!
Leana Lee (Parent of Joshuea Gan)
I had been scoring Bs and Cs for Maths and A Maths since Sec 3. But after attending Ms Jolyn’s classes, I have managed to score A1 for both Maths at O levels. Ms Jolyn is patient and would always take the time to explain concepts clearly. Thank you very much, Ms Jolyn!

Under Ms Jolyn ‘s lessons, my foundation in Additional Mathematics has tremendously improved. With the help of straightforward notes and detailed explanation to each problem, we are able to build a strong foundation in each topic. Her lessons are always efficient and effective, and have helped me improve from barely passing to an A1 in my O’ Levels!
Alani Kethireddy - Anderson Secondary School
Ms Jolyn has helped me significantly improve my Amath results!
Every lesson was extremely fruitful as notes and worksheets are provided. This aids in summarising the lesson and ensuring that everything taught retains. Ms Jolyn successfully covers at least a topic in each lesson, which enabled me to be ahead of the class in school.
Ms Jolyn has a calm and logical method of teaching which made understanding easy. She also shares effective strategies which helped me cope with more complex questions. Her lessons were interesting and enlightening. Additionally, her coaching on how to apply different methods when approaching different types of math questions were invaluable. After teaching us the appropriate techniques to tackle questions of a particular topic, she allocates time for us to complete questions she had prepared previously. During this time, should any doubts on solving the math questions appear, Ms Jolyn would help break it down and clear my doubts. She also makes sure that should I face similar questions in the future, I would be able to solve it on my own.
She helped me improved my grades drastically from F9 in Secondary 3 to A1 in “O” levels. For that, I am immensely thankful for her guidance.
Goh Ee Raye - Hua Yi Secondary
The math tuition allowed me to grasp math concepts quickly and it exposed me to different types of questions which were useful in helping me approach school homework and exam questions.
When I first joined Math Academy, I was falling behind in my A-math, feeling desperate for help. After attending teacher Jolyn’s class, math concepts became easier to understand with her concise notes and patient guidance. She was encouraging and never hesitates to answer my questions outside lessons.
With her help, I managed to score As for my maths and I’m thankful that I have attended her lessons!
Chelsea Low - Crescent Girls’ School
I am very, very grateful towards my amaths tuition teacher, Ms Jolyn Ang, and her teachings. The way she taught was clear and it made me understand amaths concepts more easily. The notes and practices that I had were very helpful as well. Besides, whenever I had difficulty with amaths, Ms Jolyn Ang always helped me patiently.
From F9 in sec3 year-end exams to scoring A1s in o level amaths ( and emaths ), Math academy has shown that it is possible to do well even when I have failed the subject badly before. Thank you so much!
Aw Jin Xuan - Swiss Cottage Secondary
I started having tuition lessons at Math Academy since I was in secondary one as I was not very good in math in primary school.
At math academy, I was tutored mainly by Mr Ang. Mr Ang is very clear in his teaching. At the start of a every new topic, he would be patient to go through a variety of questions together with his students. He breaks down the most difficult questions for us and shows us a step by step way of approaching them in future. He would always clear my doubts whenever he sees me struggling with questions.
He is also open for his students to ask him questions during or outside tuition. There was an instance when I was in doubt of a certain topic just weeks before an exam, Mr Ang did not hesitate to print me more notes on the topic when I asked for help.
With the help of Mr Ang, I was able to maintain an A1 or an A2 for E.math in secondary 1 and secondary 2 and also in A.math when I was in secondary 3 and secondary 4. I scored an A2 for A.math at the O’ levels. Without Math Academy, I would not be where I am today.
Joe Goh - Chua Chu Kang Secondary School
I joined MathAcademy 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. Furthermore, Mr Ang’s constant encouragements helped build my confidence which motivates me to work hard for future tests 🙂 Thank you Mr Ang! If you need help in math, come join Math Academy now!
Yu Jun - Nanyang JC
Ms Jolyn is a teacher who has never hesitate to clear all my doubts during A-math tuition classes. She is a very encouraging teacher who believes in her students. Her tactic in teaching makes me understand the topics much better, all her notes are very concise which makes it easy to refer even before the start of o levels. The practice questions are also picked very carefully and are usually from past UCLES and other school papers. She will follow closely based on the O level standards. I am very grateful to have such a great teacher who helped me to achieve a grade of b3 when i have been consistently failing badly(usually a F9) even when i was taking prelims. Therefore, I feel that attending this tuition class is totally worth it.:)
Koh Ruiyi - Shu Qun Secondary
Attending Math Academy really boosted my confidence in my A. Math! Thank you Mdm Jolyn, for being an incredibly patient and cheerful teacher and always clearing up my doubts, whether in class or not. Went from at E8 to A1!
Abhay Bathula - Swiss Cottage Seconday School
I started attending Math Academy in lower Secondary under the guidance of Teacher Jolyn. I found it very effective and suited to the Integrated Programme as she was willing to not only omit certain parts of the O level syllabus that I did not learn, but also to teach me parts of the IP math syllabus that I did not understand. The mandatory practices I had to complete by the next lesson each week ensured that I got sufficient practice. This helped me get an A for math in my year 4 end of year exams in RGS.
I continued to attend Math Academy in JC under Mr Ang. I really liked Mr Ang’s teaching style where he follows the JC teaching method of a short lecture before giving us a tutorial to complete. He also provides us with shortcut methods and summarised notes which really helped when I revised for my major exams. Additionally, Mr Ang never hesitates to help us with our school work both during and even outside tuition time. The rigour of finishing an additional tutorial each week on top of our school work really helped me to improve a lot. 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
I enrolled in Math Academy when I was in sec 3. Miss Ang is very patient with us. If we do not understand a math concept, she will explain it to us until I understand it. Also, her notes are very easy to understand. The worksheets she gives us also covers everything from basic to advanced questions. These has helped me to build a strong foundation in my math and which resulted in me improving my math tremendously. These has also helped me to clinch my distinctions for both Amath and Emath during the O’s. Another Plus point about Math Academy is that you can whatsapp Miss Ang any math questions and she would reply to you as soon as she can. This makes sure you can clarify your doubts immediately and move on to the next question (:
Lim Yi Xin Swiss Cottage Secondary
For my mid-year examinations in Secondary 3, I failed my Amaths and achieved a border-line pass for my Emaths. It was rather demoralizing for me at that time. I knew it was a serious concern for me as Mathematics has always been an important subject, thus I sought for a math tutor. Originally, I had wanted a 1-to-1 math tutor as I felt that I will be able to learn better if I can learn things at my own pace. However, after attending math academy’s group tuition classes, I feel that the class pace isn’t too fast for me and it does push me to work harder as well. Even on normal weekdays when Ms Jolyn is not having classes, she will reply my messages about the school math questions which I have trouble solving and guide me through it. Ms Jolyn is a very patient teacher and her classes has been all quite easy to understand. Besides the challenging revision papers and helpful notes she has provided me with, she has also come up with interesting ways to remember formulas easily.
In a short duration of half a year, my Amaths went from a fail to an A1 Grade! I myself was really shocked too with the huge improvement I have made thanks to her. As I have been constantly practicing math questions in her classes, my O level results were also an A1 for both Emaths and Amaths! Awesome job, Ms Jolyn!!️
Shirlene Wong, 2015 Dunearn Secondary School
Her lessons had made math concept so much easier to understand and to digest it. Even thought i was under her care for the whole of sec 3 and 4, but just by having a 2 hours long lesson each week, i did not have to worry about my math much for O’level. She also gave us different methods/ways to memorise certain formulas base on our own preference which made math more enjoyable and fun. My math journey has been a smooth one and did not regret one bit joining this tuition.

Chan Wei Jie, 2015 Dunearn Secondary School
I am very pleased with my A1 for a-math and I want to thank Math Academy. Jolyn has great patience to coach me during lessons so that I can clear my doubts. Furthermore, Jolyn is willing to help even after lesson hours and her teaching is easy to understand.
Zheng Jie, 2015 Kranji Secondary
Mr Ang’s lessons helped me to better understand the H2 math syllabus despite me joining for a small period of time. Mr Ang put in a lot of effort in teaching classes such as providing us additional materials when we needed them and extra help if we require them.
Tan Ang Wei, 2015 Anderson Junior College
I joined Math Academy only a few months before my ‘O’ levels examinations. My Amaths results were not consistent all along before i join Math Academy and hence I wasn’t very confident in my Amath. However, under the teachings of teacher Jolyn, I was more confident in my Amath. The materials that she provide us with are very detailed and it let me have a deeper understanding about the topic that I was learning. Whenever I have any questions that i did not know how to solve, she would patiently teach me how to solve the question as well as allow me to have some time to think through the steps. Every week she will also give adequate questions to ensure that we have enough practice at home. Hence when I became more confident in my Amaths and got an A1 for my Amath in the O level examinations.
Regine Toh, 2015 Kranji Secondary
Miss Jolyn’s lessons were engaging and effective. The notes and lessons she provided were concise and helped us grasp the concepts easily! We were exposed to a wide array of questions, not only from the TYS, but from other schools and even UCLES, which were carefully compiled to ensure we knew how to answer various question types. Not only that, she was extremely patient- if we did not understand how to answer a question, she would repeat it over and over again until we understood it. She ensured that none of us lagged behind and would answer our questions at any time, even outside of tuition. She constantly encouraged us, giving us the confidence in Maths. She truly went above and beyond the role of a tutor, and that’s what gives Math Academy the extra edge from other tuition centers. Without Maths Academy, my A1s in both A and E Maths would not have been possible!
Natalie Moh, 2015 SIngapore Chinese Girls School
I started joining Math Academy from the start of my Secondary Four journey, in 2015. My AMath results were border line passes at that time, hence I enrolled myself into this tuition centre, hoping to pull up my grades. And, when my O’ Levels Results came out. I actually had A1 for my Additional Mathematics! There are two main points about why I really recommend Math Academy.Firstly, I get to study in a small group. Unlike most tuition centres I’ve been to, Math Academy only assigns five to six students per class. This means that more attention and time will be diverted to me whenever I need help. Also, Math Academy provides an extremely quiet and conducive environment for me to study.Secondly, Math Academy has managed to pull up my grades mostly because of my dedicated teacher, Ms Jolyn Ang. She is always very helpful, to guide me along the way. I also appreciate her style of teaching as she learns from students and gives us time to think and respond. She provides ample practice for students to do too. Hence, with a genuine teacher like Ms Ang, I start to enjoy doing Math more. Hence, pushing myself to work harder and to see progress eventually. I also like how Ms Ang provides clear and precise notes for the students to refer to.All in all, I enjoy going to Math Academy because of its provision of a dedicated teacher, and a conducive environment to learn.
Trina Soh, 2015 Bukit Batok Secondary School
I started tuition at math academy in the middle of secondary 3 when i was doing poorly in amaths. Thanks to Ms Jolyn’s patient guidance, I managed to achieve a B3 in the EOYs and subsequently, A1s throughout my secondary 4 year. I am very happy to graduate with satisfactory results and I wish to thank Math Academy for their help.
