Math Academy ® holds weekly classes for JC1 and JC2 Maths Tuition. Class size is kept at a maximum of 8 per slot. Class are for students taking H2 Mathematics in JC.
What do our students say?
It was very helpful how the lesson teaches the topic step by step, and how it highlights the common problems. Tutorials with similar questions and detailed solution was useful as it trains me through practice. Now I am more confident and comfortable with the topics covered.
Risako – Pioneer JC 2015
I did not know what it meant to love what you do until I witness Mr Ian Ang’s undying energy and zest when he conducts his Mathematics lessons. He has paved his way into every detail and possibility of exam questions, allowing me to realise that every question merely revolves around the formulas and steps he has taught us.
Hsien Li – River Valley High School 2017
Mr Ang’s 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.
Johnson Koh – Hwa Chong Institution 2015
The summary notes given have helped me a lot as all the formulas and different types of questions you “must know” are written out clearly! Mr Ang is also extremely patient and never fails to answer my doubts during class.
Chieng Hui Xin – ACJC 2016
I joined Math Academy 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.
Yu Jun – Nanyang JC 2016
He is patient and very approachable and has better equipped us with the proper concepts. This has improved my foundation in Mathematics and I saw drastic improvements for myself.
Ce Wen – Anderson JC 2015
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.
Foo Hsien Weng – National JC 2015
Not only did they give us ample practice questions and class tests to ensure that we are on track, they also gave us notes which are concise and easy to understand.
Regine Toh – Saint Andrew’s JC 2017
I was a U-grader when I first joined math academy. Through your throughly planned out and clearly explained lessons, I was able to make visibly great improvement. Thank you for also being patient, caring and constantly asking how’s students progress in school throughout the year.
Joel Leong – Jurong JC 2017
He also provides us with shortcut methods and summarised notes which really helped when I revised for my major exams. Thank you Mr Ang and Math Academy for the 5 years of guidance. I would not have gotten my A without your help!

Concise and Precise Notes
With a perfect and successful math education, leading to Mr Ian Ang’s first class honours at NUS, Mr Ang knows exactly what is required to prepare for mathematics examinations. He has painstakingly summarized and broken down each chapter into bite-sized chunks, for easy reference during examination preparation.
Math Tricks and Techniques
Have you ever felt like mathematics is always different for every question? Do you always not know how to start the question? Which equation do I apply? And you wished that there is someone there to guide you and show you the way to all question types?
This is precisely how Mr Ian Ang conducts his lessons. The examination techniques and tricks are summarized across a variety of questions, instilling confidence into the students that “there is just this much, it has been covered in class”. All possible exam question types are summarized, allowing students to realize that every question merely revolves around the formulas and steps that he has taught the students.
Mr Ian Ang will provide an overview of all question types, before drilling into details on how to solve them. Whilst building up the students’ mathematical foundation is important, a students’ confidence and morale cannot be underestimated.
Class Size: Small
Our JC H2 math tuition classes will only take in a maximum of 8 students. This will ensure that we can provide sufficient attention to every student, to clarify all their doubts, and ensure that they understand the mathematical concepts and techniques.
Weekly tutorial questions have been carefully chosen with the following considerations:
- To reflect the myriad of questions that appears in exams
- To drill students with questions from past year school prelim exams
Fully-worked out Solutions
Model answers are printed and given to students for all tutorial problems. This helps students to understand the solutions better even after the tuition has ended.
Use of Projector and Slides
Efficient teaching is performed through the use of slides. Mr Ian Ang believes in the use of technology for efficient delivery of his classes.
Marking of Mock Tests
Mr Ian will select questions with important learning values and give these questions during tests. This will be done closer to the A level exams, to drill students on the important question types as well as to check on their presentation. This assures students on their style of presentation and prevents them from losing unnecessary marks.
In 2018, we have students from the following schools:
Hwa Chong Instituition
Saint Andrew’s JC
River Valley High
What can you expect from the class?
Classes are 2 hours long.
In the first half of the lesson, Mr Ian Ang will be teaching the topic, using his own set of copyrighted quality notes. No pre-learning from school is required.
These notes are a culmination of years of efforts, summarizing the key concepts and examination questions, presented in a concise manner.
In the second half of the lesson, students will be provided with tutorials relevant to the teachings of that lesson.
These questions reflect the trend of examination questions in recent years, carefully selected from schools’ examination papers.
Students are expected to complete them before the next lesson.
Mr Ang will clarify their doubts and provide the students with a set of fully-worked out solution.
Students are expected to work hard together with Mr Ang’s guidance.

JC1 classes will start in the first week January every year. This is to provide students with headstart to the JC syllabus, to allow them to gain exposure earlier and to adapt well to JC life. Our experience tells us that students find the transition to A levels Math tough, largely due to a different and faster teaching style, with lectures and tutorials. Our students have found this headstart to be beneficial. GCE O level results are usually released by mid Jan.
