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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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
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!

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.

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
I like Math Academy’s style of teaching as the teacher makes A math concepts easier to understand and guides us in our thought processes when handling different types of questions. Thank you Math Academy for helping me improve my grades tremendously!

Thank you to Ms Ang for helping me out so much. I used to fail e maths all the way throughout secondary 1, 2, 3 and I hated the subject. In my crucial year, Sec 4, I was still unclear about the subject. Only about months before my GCE O Levels, I started joining maths tutor Ms Ang’s classes. I pulled myself up with the help of Ms Ang who is very patient and understanding towards her students. I finally achieved a distinction for my GCE O Level e maths and I am very grateful towards tutor Ms Ang who has helped me achieved that score.
Kelly Heng Unity Secondary
The lesson is very valuable for us since we are into the additional maths lesson. Not only that, the methods taught made us understand better and it makes it easier for us to solve the questions. For example, the method that we learnt during the lesson on “modulus”, is fast and easy to understand. Moreover, the time limit to answer the questions can be shortened. Furthermore, the lessons also challenged our minds and further our knowledge.
Derek, Nissa Teck Whye Secondary
The lessons are very fun and interesting. There is a good study environment and it is helpful for learning. On top of that, there are sweets provided to keep you awake.
Dawn Yeow Teck Whye Secondary
Ms Ang is a very patient teacher, even if I asked her the same question for a few times, she would answer my question as if I am asking for the first time. Her teaching method allows me to understand the topic better and she also emphasizes the part whereby we should be exposed to different types of questions so that during exam we will be prepared for a diversity of questions
Yong Kai Ting BPGHS
After attending the lessons, I have really improved a lot. I was scoring a B4 when I did not have this tuition, but now I scored an A1 in Maths. The teacher is a really kind and helpful teacher. Although the duration of the lesson is 1hr and 30 mins, she will make sure that we have finished our homework before we can go. While teaching new topics, she has examples of the topic and will explain to us how to do very clearly. Through this tuition, I have learnt that if you want to score well, you will have to work with the teacher. She is really a great teacher.
Cheong Huishi, Teck Whye Secondary Teck Whye Secondary
This tuition has been the most inspirational course in my entire life. I feel like I have achieve so much. Taking into account that my result had improved in just a month is unbelievable!
Elvis Wong BPGHS
I had achieved much under Ms Ang’s guidance and had shown tremendous improvement. If not for her help, I would not be able to catch up with the rest in class and achieve an “A” in my End of Year Result for Additional Mathematics.

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.

Ms Ang is a wonderful teacher ! She is patient and committed to her teaching. She has helped me understand Mathematics (a subject which I am very weak in) better. Her clear and concise notes had enabled me to tackle different types of questions. When I don;t understand some questions and I asked her to explain again, she will explain it to me clearly and make sure that I understand it. Under Ms Ang’s guidance, I have more confidence in doing Mathematics !
Eunice Liew BPGHS
Tutor Jolyn is nice, witty, efficient and patient. She never fails to answer those repeated questions that I have always asked. She explains until I fully understand. Her explanations are always clear and easy to understand. Her learning environment is clean and confortable, giving me an ideal place to study in. My grades had always remained at a grade accepted by my level and parents (: . Thank you, tutor Jolyn !
