From NIE trained ex school teacher to NUS math first class honours graduate, Math Academy is run by a family of 3 sibings. All classes are taught by the 3 of us and we are committed to improve your or your child’s grades. All 3 of us specialize only in Mathematics, and had previously graduated from NUS, major in Mathematics. (Not engineering or other sciences!)
Our speciality lies in A Maths tuition and JC H2 math tuition. We are an exclusive maths tuition centre that specialises only in Mathematics, from secondary to JC. We are extremely familiar with the concepts and techniques required to do well in O and A levels, and we prepare our JC H2 math tuition and A Maths tuition classes towards achieving a top grade.
We have always maintained a small class size of 6 for lower sec and 8 for upper sec and JC, as we want to uphold the same philosophy, that is, to help as many students as we can. With a small class size, we ensure that we provide sufficient attention to each and every student.
We have seen many batches of students go through National O and A level examinations and understand what is best for them to do well.

Mr Ian has 9 years of experience, specializing in providing JC H2 Maths tuition. He has achieved academic excellence throughout his education years, scoring straight A’s at O levels with a raw score of 6 points, achieving 7 A1’s in the process. He also scored straight A’s at A Levels, including Mathematics and Further Mathematics. He capped off his perfect academic results with a First Class Honours in Pure Mathematics at NUS and has also been placed on the Dean’s list.
Ian wants to pass on to his students, the techniques that have brought him success in his own Mathematics education.
Ian’s strength lies in teaching problem solving techniques in an efficient and effective manner. He takes pride in his own set of notes which are clear and concise. He believes that the difficulty of a topic is dependent on the delivery of the teacher. Hence, he focuses explaining complex mathematical concepts in a simplified manner. In class, Ian enjoys building strong rapport with students which ensures a comfortable environment for them to ask questions.
