Primary Mathematics

Building a strong Mathematical foundation starts from young. Give your child a strong foundation with our Primary Mathematics Tuition Program

Give your child a strong foundation with our Primary Mathematics Tuition Program. It is crucial to establish a strong Mathematical foundation from young as this will allow them to grasp harder Mathematical concepts in higher level education later easily.

 

Additionally, in developing their logical-thinking at a young age, the honing of these skills can lead to further development of critical analytical skills that are especially important in areas of Computer Science, Business and Science that are crucial in our world today.

 

Our programmes will establish the strong foundation that is needed for them to attain the highest Achievement Level (AL) in their Primary School Leaving Examinations.

Our Student-Centred Pedagogy

Our centre applies the following pedagogies in our lessons:

The CPA Approach

Concrete - Pictorial - Abstract approach (C - P - A) for conceptual understanding

Hands-on learning experiences

Hands-on learning experiences to engage our students

Differentiated Instruction

Differentiated Instruction (Content, Process, Product) for individual student

Problem Solving Heuristics

Provide higher order thinking questions to help students with problem solving heuristics. 

How Students Benefits from Our Lessons in Word Problems Solving

Structured Lessons and Materials

We ensure our students get to learn new concepts through step by step instructions and systematic problem solving. The lessons are extremely structured and provide the students with sufficient materials in order to gain better insight into mathematics as a whole. 

As we engage our students in our lessons, we come up with methods that are simple to understand and pick up as long as they practice diligently, due to the fact that they are built from their individual mathematical concepts.

Experienced and Teachers (trained by Ex-MOE teacher)

Our teachers are trained and highly experienced in using different approaches to explain the solutions according to the student’s learning methods. The main approaches used by our teachers in problem-solving include the use of a given concept, helping learners understand the problem, and spending adequate time on each child. 

Our centre consists of teachers who are both qualified and dedicated to the betterment of the students educational experience, trained and with extensive teaching experience.

Combining our straightforward methods along with our skilled and highly professional teaching staff, we provide a positive learning experience in our centres. Our teachers will always be available to cater individually, and through which their teaching experience will provide tangible educational benefits.

Systematic Approaches to Solve Different Problem Sums

We have systematic approaches to solve different types of problem sums. We teach our students how to identify the type of problem sum at hand and apply the respective method to solve it. 

Some examples of these more analytical concepts include:​

  • Grouping

  • More Than/Less Than (Give away)

  • More Than/Less Than (Internal Transfer)

  • Remainder Concept

  • Assumption

  • Constant Difference

  • Total Constant

  • etc

These topics may seem complicated at first, however, through our systematic approaches developed especially for easy understanding and efficacy, the students will have no problem tackling these types of problems even during a time crunch.

Identification of Student’s Weaknesses

Our teachers can identify student’s weaknesses in Mathematical concepts and rectify them to help the student understand the questions. This comes with benefits because we understand the individual weaknesses and thus are able to work towards improving on their specific areas of weakness. 

This can only be achieved with experience and patience from our centre’s teaching staff, who are focused on helping your child on an individual basis.

Detailed Explanation and Markings 

We provide the students with detailed explanations when marking their worksheets. 

 

Each answer is carefully marked in order for the teachers to understand the student’s thought process, providing accurate advice and corrections.  Detailed explanations will be given for each step or working, especially for those answered incorrectly. We help our students develop a much more in depth understanding towards these concepts and gain better insight towards solving future questions.

 

We ensure that students write down the correct working. We will explain the working in detail to them, ensuring that they understand each word problem completely.  This will help our students to be able to handle the word problems in the examination and not repeat their mistakes.
