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 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.:)

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 (:

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.
Amath & Emath : A1
Chan Wei Jie, 2015 Dunearn Secondary School January 18, 2016
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 January 18, 2016
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 SIngapore Chinese Girls School January 16, 2016
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 January 16, 2016
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 January 16, 2016
Ms Jolyn is an extremely dedicated teacher who is able to deliver her lessons well. Through weekly quizzes at the start of the lessons, Ms Jolyn has helped us to forge our way through the little “secrets” of mathematics questions and the concepts behind different question types. Also, Math Academy exposes us to a broad range of questions which gave me the confidence in tackling various types of questions in my school examinations. I’m extremely thankful for having Ms Jolyn as my tutor as I’ve gotten overall top for Maths in class this year!
Foo Hsien Li, 2015 River Valley High School October 27, 2015
A student who consistently fared poorly in her mathematics subject upon embarking on secondary education, which was evident in the lousy grades she had achieved even during her lower secondary days, I decided to make a stark and significant difference to my grades for mathematics.
It was not long later when I stepped into the doors of Math Academy. As I entered as a sec2, going on to a sec3 student towards the end of 2013, a sense of hope emerged. The teachers in Math Academy were extremely specialised in the mathematics area, and were willing to go beyond the call of duty to provide any sort of aid and assistance to their students. I was an erstwhile student of Ms Ang, whom I deeply respect and admire for her unending patience, interminable guidance, undying passion and superb dedication dedicated to her students. She never fails to keep a lookout for any student, and is deeply committed to ensure that her students do well in their respective examinations by equipping them with the necessary skills.
Being taught by her has cultivated in me a strong interest and desire for Elementary and Additional Mathematics in my upper secondary years, of which was a great fear. Under her unrelenting guidance, my confidence level has consistently increased, and my grades, though may not have shown profound changes, have certainly become a self-esteem booster each time, pushing me further, along with Ms Ang’s heartwarming encouragement and motivational words.
Every class in Math Academy is kept to a limited size, so you can be at ease for every student is sure to receive individualized attention. The pace of each class is also moderate, and is often altered to suit the respective class’s standards, so students have no fear that they are either unable to catch up with the class, or that they’ll not be able to enrich themselves should they be already achieving stellar results.
Weekly work is assigned every lesson, and all worksheets and notes are specially designed in a manner such that they are easy to comprehend. The questions set in the worksheets come to great use when one sits for an examination as they’re frequently tested questions, hence students will be more accustomed to the questions being set in their respective schools. These questions enforce the skills tested, and ensure that students are highly aware of how to tackle such questions.
Lessons do not end when one simply steps out of the doors of this tuition centre. Teachers here are more than willing to attend to students almost at any time of the day. One may feel free to constantly contact the teachers here about questions in which they are unsure of, and I can assure you, you will get an almost immediate and instantaneous reply. Doubts are hence not simply cleared in the confines of the classroom, but in fact, anywhere and anytime! This ensures students constantly refine and sharpen their math skills so that they’ll be able to tackle any paper thrown at them.
Math Academy is surely the right place to ensure your child is ever ready to sit for any examination. The lessons, teachers, and materials provided are undoubtedly the best that you can ask for. This is the place to make a difference to your grades in mathematics.
Gwennie Choong Wei Yu, 2015 Nan Hua High - 2015 November 26, 2015
Mr Ang believes that excelling Math is about practice & exposure. He is an effective tutor who conscientiously compiles questions types for his students to tackle math problems. Mr Ang is also strategic in his teaching style and has better equipped us with the proper concepts and this has improved our foundation in Mathematics. As such, I saw drastic improvements for myself. In addition, he is patient and very approachable too. Thank you Mr Ang, for everything!

When I first stepped into Math Academy, I wasn’t quite sure if I would really benefit from it. However, my doubts were unfounded as each and every lesson reaped great benefits, be it the extensive types of questions available or the comprehensive topical notes, which cover certain areas where school-based teaching tend to be lacking. In fact, I was soon able to help my friends with their Math tutorials after a few months!
Mr Ian Ang’s teaching is easily understood and extremely value-adding. By providing efficient frameworks and explaining how to approach questions on a step-by-step basis, I was able to tackle many complex questions under examination conditions. This was also aided by Mr Ang’s reinforcing of essential O-Level formulas, of which I had forgotten most of them. Additionally, no question is too silly, or concept too simple – everything is patiently and thoroughly explained, overcoming a psychological barrier which prevents many students (myself included) from achieving their true potential.
Sean Sin, 2015 ACJC December 24, 2015
Mr Ang is a dedicated teacher who never fails to go the extra mile for his students, such as arranging his personal schedule to accommodate that of his students as well as ensuring that his students are given that the materials that they require. His approach to the subject can help students to view it from a different perspective, which is essential in understanding the subject better. Also, the small class sizes ensure that equal and sufficient attention is given to each and every student during the lesson.
Bryan Tan, 2015 National JC December 24, 2015
Mr Ang is an extremely dedicated and patient teacher who never fails to answer my questions and help me clear my misconceptions in class.
He has taught me for 3 years and with his help, I have began to be more confident in approaching maths.
Moreover, he is also willing to help me outside of class when I face difficulty in maths. 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.
Overall, he is a great teacher that is genuine when it comes to helping his students, even when it gets extremely tough and arduous.
Foo Hsien Weng, 2015 National JC December 24, 2015
Mr Ang is a teacher who would be willing to go the extra miles for the students he teach. His 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. Mr Ang’s lessons seek to complement school lessons. He is more than willing to restructure his lesson plans to fit the needs of his students. He would also sit down and review our examination scripts with us, going through our mistakes and ensuring that we do not make the same mistakes again. All in all, I believe that Mr Ang’s teaching certainly helps in pushing the students to achieve academic excellence.
Johnson Koh, 2015 Hwa Chong Institution January 11, 2016
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.
Xin Yu, 2015 Bukit Panjang Govt High School January 16, 2016
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 January 16, 2016
The notes in the revision guide is simple and easy to use and also very clear at the same time. This December holiday workship has also helped me regain back my understandings and skills required for the topic after a long break.
Clement Koh Pioneer JC December 24, 2015
The questions helped to understand the concepts better and it has reinforced my understanding of the chapters. The notes are very useful and tells me the important key concepts to understand in each chapter. Mr Ian Ang is willing to help and is very nice. He is able to pinpoinbt my mistakes and tell us how to think about the questions.
Javier Lim Yu Zhe Anderson JC December 24, 2015
Remembering the days when i was nearing my GCE “O” levels examinations, additonal mathematics was the nightmare of the 7 subjects i am taking. I tried all sort of revisions and helps from friends/teachers/tutors but my A.maths results remained at a constant grade, F9. Until when my aunt introduced to me a full-time tutor, Ms Ang(Jolyn). Initially i thought it just another waste of time and $$ as i have completely lost FAITH and confidence in solving A.maths. However, little did i realise that Jolyn has made a great turning point in my A.maths results.Just on the first day of the 1 on 1 lesson, the first statement she say was,
” If u are co-operative with me, i can guarantee a C6 for ur O lvl Amaths.”
Then i looked at my handphone, its only..2-3weeks from O lvl A.Math examination. I gave myself a chance and trusted her words. And now i nvr regret every moment spent at her house, revising A.maths. Under her teachings and guidance i studied very hard for the subject and went through every topic of A.maths. She patiently started from scratch and yet can build up my basic foundation quickly. It was indeed rush and urgent as time tickles, but i nvr gave up and pushed myself to the best wad i could.
During last few lessons, i realised a change of my attitude towards a.maths; i felt powerful and stronger as days goes by. Then ultimately, on the day when i have to put my abilities to test…equipped with all the necessary knowledge…i managed to get a B4. Maybe B4 is not wad many wanted to get, but personally it was a utmost achievement to me, a great leap of 5 grades in short time..who could have pushed me so far…it no other than Ms Jolyn Ang!
Her fees are acceptable and the 2hr time is very flexible. Trust me fellow sec 4 students, it is my fortune to have attended her lessons during my most crucial and darkest days of my sec sch life. No matter how tough it may be, as long as u are willingly to give urself a chance, just a chance, u will realise that ur limits are much further and stronger than wad u think. I am certain and confident that Ms Ang will make u FEARLESS and INVINCIBLE towards Mathematics.

I admire Ms Ang for her commitment towards her students. Ms Ang stays up late even skipped her meals to help her students. Before I had the honor to have Ms Ang as my math tutor, I had very low self esteem in the way I tackled mathematics questions. It was after I was placed under the guidance of Ms Ang that my self confidence grew significantly. (Especially in my math paper two!)
I was given ample practise and math papers seemed easier to handle each time I attempted them. (Math papers became challenging even demanding at times but gradually I grew to develop positivity even a sense of accomplishment after I completed each question.) I grew to constantly challenge myself to handle questions of different level of difficulty each time I attend her lessons.Maths became a subject that was enjoyable, there were always not enough math papers for me to complete!
Ask Ms Ang and you will know that I always wanted extra papers for homework; she prints the papers for me without hesitation… (Sure! why not?)Is her reply in her sms ;D
Every time I went for classes, she unlike other tutors or school teachers would sit down and teach me. She would go through the questions and doubts which I have with a sense of duty. (Mind you, she listens and makes an attempt to show understanding, she does not rush through nor does she give a brief explanations, she goes through questions one by one. Step by step, concepts taught were clear and understandable. Her patience and positivity is clearly noticeable whenever she teaches. Her passion for teaching is a character which I respect.
You will know it when you attend her lessons. You will notice the difference between the teachings in school and those taught by Ms Ang.Only then can you comprehend my testimonial…
Ms Ang goes the extra mile to pass mathematical concepts, formula to her students. Students like me whom was clueless, hopeless even as described by my parents as birdbrain! Nonetheless, I no longer view math as a burden, I view math as a subject to be mastered slowly with a passion developed by teachers like Ms Ang! The Best is Yet to Be, Ms Ang is one of the few teachers I truly would respect. She is a role model for me to follow. I would want to coach others like how she teaches us in future, with her as guidance I know I would never go wrong. Ms Ang is and will always be my teacher /idol in my heart.
Well Done Ms Ang! Jia you! Thank you for your guidance and support whenever I am in despair
