Math Note was established by Miss Ayassa Chua, with the mission of helping students who face difficulty in Math to gain confidence and ultimately, excel in the subject. Miss Chua graduated with a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering, NTU and Post-graduate Diploma in Education for Mathematics and Physics, NIE.
Miss Ayassa Chua is also a former MOE school teacher. During her experience of teaching in schools, she realised that students required notes that are clear and concise for better conceptual understanding. Therefore, she developed a systematic approach that was effective in helping students understand Mathematical concepts better.
She realised that students would often stumble at minor steps when solving problems, resulting in them feeling demoralised and frustrated. As a result, many of such students gave up on solving these problems. In witnessing this, she thought to herself, “if only there were guidance or notes to help the students in these small steps, then they would be able to easily solve the whole question by themselves”. This inspired her to write small notes on essential steps to help her own students, which have formed the foundation of Math Note’s materials.
Initially, she was writing simple summary notes that explained key concepts and common mistakes that her students often made. When she gave it to some of her weaker students during remedial lessons, she realised that the responses from students were very positive and it drastically helped her students learn better. As a result, she began to write such notes for more and more topics. The notes were written based on her teaching experience and interaction with students but also retaining a students’ perspective. Her notes were also always updated and refined constantly to keep up with the change in the MOE syllabus.
Miss Ayassa Chua realised that she could help more students with her notes, not just those in the schools that she was teaching in. Coupled with the thought of wanting a smaller class size so that students could have more attention from the teacher, Math Note was established.
Miss Ayassa has been teaching at Math Note for over 15 years. Her students are from various streams and levels, ranging from IP Math, O-level A/E Math N-level A/E Math to JC H1/H2 Math. As of today, more than 600 students have benefited from her notes and over 90% of her students have gotten As/Bs in their final examination. Let Miss Ayassa Chua's structured lessons and materials help your child take their first step to conquering Mathematics in a fun and easy way!
