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.
I was introduced to Miss Ang’s math tuition when I was in secondary three. I found that the basic practices we obtained in textbooks were insufficient for me to fully grasp the concepts and answering skills required in actual examinations. My mathematics grades fluctuated. During that period while I learnt the basics in mathematics, Miss Ang was the teacher, who provided the best questions to cement my basics. Her concepts were taught well, her self-compiled notes simple and easy to learn from. I love the way she would give us time during lessons to consider and do those ‘concept cementing’ questions. During that time, students are able to personally ask her questions they would not ask in a huge class setting. For myself, it fit my learning style very well. She answered each of my (sometimes silly) questions with utmost patience and care, and despite being in a classroom with other students, she never makes me feel neglected or confused. She was always willing to provide me with extra questions, and to even go the extra mile to take time off her busy schedule to mark my answers, to check my presentation etc. Sometimes, in school, homework was simply ‘gone through’ in class due to our teachers’ schedules, and so I really appreciated Miss Ang’s efforts to help in all aspects of my mathematics. Her lessons in teaching, mathematics, and sincerity have stayed with me all this while as I progress onto Junior College and University. And for that, Miss Ang, thank you so very much!

Towards the end of secondary 2, my mathematics results were not satisfying; knowing that I had to take up additional mathematics the following year, I was worried that I could not catch up with the syllabus and decided to look for a mathematics tutor who would be able to guide me along the way. After trying out a couple of teachers, I finally came across Ms. Ang whom I felt comfortable being around with. A patient and caring teacher, she has the gifted ability to help and guide every student to cater to their learning needs. She delivers her lessons in a comprehensive manner that is easy to understand. Under her constant guidance, I did consistently well for my additional mathematics. She is also a humble person who is always willing to lend a helping hand, and even helped me with my elementary mathematics even though I was not officially enrolled into the class. I’m truly blessed and grateful for having a tutor like Ms. Ang and although it has been 3 years since my graduation as an O’ levels student, I will never fail to remember her kind efforts. Thank you Ms. Ang, for being an important part of my journey through secondary school.

I’ve been tutored by Ms Ang ever since I was in secondary one as my parents were concerned with my math grades that were just borderline passes. I felt myself beginning to love mathematics as the lessons conducted by Ms Ang were enjoyable and most importantly, helped to clear my doubts. Throughout my secondary school life, Math has always been my strongest subject and I have always managed to get distinctions for majority of my school examinations. For my O levels, I managed to attain distinctions for both additional and elementary mathematics and I’m absolutely sure that I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of Ms Ang. She’s an excellent math teacher who’s patient and responsible and is always willing to clear our doubts even outside lessons (Through Whatsapp etc.) I’m extremely grateful for her help in these 4 years! Thank you Ms Ang! 🙂

When I just
entered Jolyn’s tuition class in sec 3, I scored an f9 for my a math. After
going to her lessons every week, I realised that she is a very patient and
helpful teacher. When I do not
understand the questions, she will not hesitate to guide me through step by
step till I fully understand. She even extended the timings for weaker students
like me in order to catch up with the rest of the kids. Jolyn did not give up
on me despite my weak foundation but instead build it up. After much
preparation and hard work from both of us , I managed to clinch an A2 for my
Lau Wei Neng Shu Qun Secondary School
Through this tuition, I’ve managed to learn a lot more than i did in school. Ms Jolyn has made a-math much easier to digest. She is very clear with her explanations and also a good guider. She makes us find out what we do not understand and solve our queries immediately in the lesson. Her worksheets and notes has been of great use to me too. Her notes are explicit and straight to the point. Ms Jolyn also guides us according to our pace on math, ensuring that we do not waste any precious time at the tuition center. She also make sure that we are taught the lessons base on the school curriculum, also at the same time being quick to prepare us for o levels and upcoming tests. Ms Jolyn also makes herself available through messages, so that we can answer our queries as soon as possible , instead of waiting till our weekly tution. Ms Jolyn is a very experienced and caring teacher whose teaching I enjoyed a lot.

I joined the tuition through the recommendation of my friends. I was
struggling in school with A Maths as such I needed help with this subject.
When my friend recommended me to Ms Ang, I figured that I could give it a
She is a great teacher who is very patient with her students. I had trouble
with a certain topic and I asked tons of questions to clarify. Instead of
getting tired of answering my questions that are easy to her, she took time
to explain slowly to me.
This is one of the merits of Ms Ang.
Through her detailed explanation and wonderful teaching, I saw improvement
in my A Maths grades. As time went by, I got better and better due to her
teachings. In the recent O’ Level examinations I managed to score an A1 for
my A Maths and I have to say, I could not have done it without her.

Math used to be one of my weakest subjects and the subject that i hate most. I struggled with math when i was in Secondary 1, before i got to know Ms Ang and get tutored by her. After a few classes with Ms Ang, my maths started to have great improvements. I also started to really love maths. Ms Ang is able to teach maths in an interesting way, which makes it easier to understand and fun to learn. Whenever i have doubts about the new maths formula or such, Ms Ang will always explain the concepts again to me, patiently until i understand. Ms Ang also teach us many different methods to approach certain questions, which our school may not teach us. This will allow us to choose the method that we are most comfortable in to approach those questions, rather than to be forced to use just one single method. Today, I am the only one among my group of friends who has obtained an A1 for Additional Mathematics and its all thanks to Ms Ang. ^^
Lim Shu Yi Zheng Hua Secondary School
When i first took Additional Mathematics in secondary 3, i remembered how i struggled to understand the different concepts in Amath. However, after enrolling into Ms Ang’s Additional Mathematics tuition, i learnt the concepts beforehand and was able to understand better in school. Also, the notes provided were clear and precise, and under Ms Ang’s teaching, i was able to grasp the subject well. Moreover, even outside class, i can seek help in Amath from Ms Ang through Whatsapp and i really appreciate that. The numerous practice papers provided by Ms Ang also trained me really well in terms of precision in my answers and speed, allowing me to be fully prepared for the O’levels examination. Under Ms Ang’s patience and guidance, i started to find that Amath is a fun and interesting subject. Thank you Ms Ang.

Joining the Math Academy since Secondary Two has really helped me a lot in
both my Elementary and Additional Math Subjects. The weekly exercises that
Miss Ang had given really gave me much needed practice in the subject. It
helped me to build my foundation in the subject and the small class size
also helped very much. My doubts were easily cleared if there were any,
with clear explanations that helped me with my understanding of the
subject; Miss Ang was very helpful in offering her handy tips which I found
extremely useful during the O’Levels. So I was very thankful to have chosen
to join Math Academy! 🙂

Dear staff at Math Academy,
I am writing to commend a tutor from your group, Ms. Jolyn Ang who has been both inspiring and dedicated. I started attending Additional Math lessons she conducted when I realized that my Amath grades were plummeting. The day I joined her classes, I returned back home with so much of new knowledge and I was so excited because I felt that the two hour session made me feel more interested in Amath and that gave me the confidence to challenge myself to do well in the subject. Within a short span of 4 months, my Amath grades literally soared from a C6 to an A1.I particularly liked how patient she was with me when I just couldn’t seem to understand certain complex concepts. She goes the extra mile by providing us with top school papers and worksheets containing various types of questions from Cambridge so that we are exposed to different styles in which Amath questions are set. It was through this intensive revision she provided that I managed to attain and A2 grade for Amath in the 2013 O level examinations. I hope that many more students would be able to benefit from her and gain more confidence in math. She made me believe that through hard work,I could turn my weakest subject into my forte.
Sonia Saint Margaret’s School
I joined the class when I was in secondary two as my results were
unsatisfactory. I used to love math in primary school as it was fun and
easy to do well. After barely passing most of my math tests in sec 1 I lost
that passion for math and decided to join Ms Ang’s class to try to pull up
my grades. I’m not exactly the student in class that is always awake and
listening attentively but in Ms Ang’s class it’s different. She’s easy to
listen to and very patient in teaching us new topics and her teaching
method makes even the hardest things easy to absorb and do. My confidence
for math improved and so did my grades. I remember people coming to ask me
how I improved so much and I actually got three of my friends to join the
class with me. They were shocked at my huge improvement even though I still
slept in class. 😛 She understands that each student has different
learning and absorbing abilities and always tries to 配合 (fit?!) to their
speed of learning and doing. After marking our work, she went through our
work one by one to us and the mistakes made and reminds us not make them
the next time. Not only so, she allows us to whatsapp her if we had any
questions that we are stuck on, whether school homework or own practice,
she would always teach us how to solve it. Honestly when I joined the
tuition class I was just expecting to pull my grades up, however it is
because of Ms Ang that rekindled my love for math.
Thanks Ms Ang for all the help!
Wong Jia Hui Crescent Girls School
I joined Ms Ang’s class in the beginning of Secondary Three. Her teaching was very explicit and allowed me to understand the solutions to difficult problems easily. She ensured that each of us were comfortable with the pace of the lesson, yet at the same time, completing before the school goes through a specific topic. This allowed me to pay close attention in class and attain above satisfactory results in my A math O levels. Thank You Ms Ang !!!
Tay Kai yi Crescent Girls School
Ms Ang started teaching me since Secondary one. She is one of the best math
teacher that I ever have. She is a very caring and patient teacher as she
always patiently go through our doubts. She will make sure that we
understand what we are doing before she move on. She would not hesitate to
help us during her own time. When I have any doubts about my school work, I
will whatsapp her to ask her, and she will help me to solve the question
and making sure that I understand. My A-math wasn’t fairly very well in sec
3 and 4 however in my O’s level I got B3 Which I’m very statisfied and I
have to thanks Ms Ang for that. So I would strongly advice people to join
Tay Cheng Jun Hillgrove Secondary School
Math has never been my forte but ever since I started attending Math lessons at Math Academy, I found myself being able to better comprehend the demands of the questions. Through the strategies taught during lessons, I learnt and mastered how to apply concepts onto the paper with the right presentation. In the end of year 4, I scored an A for my math finals and I’m very thankful to Teacher Jolyn for her patience for the past few years!
Sharmaine Toh Raffles Institution
As I was really bad in Math in primary school, my mother enrolled me to a Math tuition class and Ms Ang was my tutor ever since I was in Secondary One. Since I always did badly for math, I’ve come to hate math. However, under Ms Ang’s guidance, I’ve made tremendous improvement that now Math is my strongest subject and I’m starting to like Math. Whenever I request for more practice for certain topics that I’m weaker in, Ms Ang will always be willingly to print them for me. She will then explain all the questions that I’m unsure of patiently till I get them. She also teaches us a few methods for the sums so that we can choose the one that we are most comfortable with. Ms Ang also mark all our work and return us on time without fail. She will then go through all the mistakes that we made so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes again. She will also walk around the class to check on our work to correct our mistakes on the spot. This helps me to understand my mistakes better. I am also able to whatsapp her questions that I do not know how to solve and she will reply back with the solutions almost immediately. It was really great to have her as my Math tutor for four years. Thank you Ms Ang!
Lim Jia Hui Choa Chu Kang Secondary School
I’ve actually learnt more in this tuition class than school classes because I was able to clear my doubts immediately instead of waiting after the class to end in school. I get to learnt different ways and methods in solving questions whereby my school teacher have not taught me before. Furthermore I get to have a better understanding of each topics by practicing other school papers whereas some questions are rather tricky than my school textbooks or papers.
Moreover , after I’ve done papers, Mr Ian Ang will go through all my mistakes and teach me different and easier methods in solving questions which helps me to strengthen my skills. He also teaches me to understand the words equation better by breaking the question down one by one as I’ve difficulty in understanding the words equation such as money questions. In fact , my results have been improving gradually and I was able to be more confident doing maths papers. To sum it up , I’ve learnt to be more confident and look at questions in different angles.
Lu Wan Hui Hillgrove Secondary
I am very proud to say that I was from Jolyn maths hub tuition (now Math Academy). The tuition was very effective as the teaching style suited well to my learning abilities. Before I joined the tuition I felt that my grades wouldn’t jump so high as maths was one of my poor subjects. With the help and the patience of the teacher I am well satisfied with my grades. I would like to thank Miss Jolyn for her efforts.
Jasmin Kaur Commonwealth Secondary

He will also answer our doubts , if we have questions from school he will also teaches us . His class is very interesting and fun . My maths result improved a lot after attending the class.
Jeslyn Koh Regent Secondary School
Here you go Miss Ang! Thank You for all your help leading up to the O levels. Maths Academy is an environment where I am able to clarify doubts and strengthen the basis of my mathematical skills. Through their method of ensuring students practise their skills once they learn them , I consolidated my knowledge and showed me what I did not understand. The small class size of six people is a bonus too!
Chan See Ming BPGHS
Ms Ang is a dedicated teacher who never fails to answer all my doubts in maths. Her classes are very interesting and I often find myself looking forward to her class every sunday. My grades improved drastically after being coached by her. She makes sure I understand before she carries on and she delivers her lesson extremely clearly. She has been a great help to me throughout this 2 years and without her guidance, I would never have achieved A1 in both maths. Thank you.
