# A Math Tuition @ Novena

## Deepen Problem Solving Skills & Techniques

I was an ex student here and used to get mostly B and C grades for my chemistry and maths. but after going for tuition at Habitat, my grades started improving. the teachers there are very friendly and patient, always motivating me never to give up. As for my O levels, I managed to score distinctions for chemistry and both maths!

## A Math Tuition

#### Upper Secondary 3, 4/ ‘O’ Level A Math Tuition

If your child is doing well in E Math, he or she might still have challenges in A Math. Our small class setting ensures your child gets the most attention. Our teachers make sure your child is able to grapse all required understanding of A Math.

Fundamentally, how we conduct A math tuition is similar to the way we conduct E math tuition. However A math requires a faster pace in approaching questions. Therefore speed is one of the key factors that we as an A Math tuition centre assists students to do well in the ‘O’ levels. These are Habitat’s way to A math tuition:

##### Small Group Tuition ▾

Unlike many centres, our class size is capped at 6 so teacher can spend more time per student. Individualised coaching catered to the student’s need.

##### Tuition Duration ▾

Each session last for 2 hours. Understand where they left off previously, recap on existing topic/ start new topic. Teach on concepts and certain questions in the worksheet. Go through/ mark and correct mistakes individually.

##### Summary Notes ▾

At Habitat, we take pride in creating our own notes. We compile our own teaching materials and worksheets based on MOE syllabus. These notes provide the key concepts to students, helping them to excel in A Math.

##### Analyse Past Papers ▾

We believe in exposing students to various exam papers. Being able to understand what answer(s) the question is looking for is crucial to scoring well. There are different styles of questions even when they are looking for the same answer. All these are well covered.

##### Apply K-D-C Model ▾

Our model to scoring in Math is using the K-D-C model. Students are taught to first know the concepts. Then we drill them for speed. Lastly the ability to spot mistakes and check if answers are correct will ensure students to avoid losing marks which they duly deserved.

##### Make Learning Fun ▾

Probably nothing is as important to nurture the affinity to like math. Teachers engaged in short chats to ensure students enjoy learning and that they understand the topic. Relevant stories are shared to make learning more interesting and relatable. That’s why students love our classes!

As an A Math Tuition Centre, our A Level Math tuition assists students to do well in the ‘O’ level, which they have 2 papers to clear as tabled below.

The topics covered in our upper secondary A Math tuition follows closely to the syllabus laid out by Singapore-Cambridge below. Through the years of educating our students, we understand the challenges of our ‘O’ level students and the common topics which they find challenges with. Highlighted below are also some topics that students usually have challenges with for A Math.

* Topics/ sub-topics most students find challenges with

Some students do better with A math as compared to E math while some struggle more in A math compared to E math. The ability to perform in E math does not guarantee performance in A math and vice versa.

## What We Do at Habitat

Our upper secondary A math (Additional math) tuition’s approach is similar to that of our E math tuition as we prepare the students for ‘O’ level right from the beginning. Our A Math Tutors employ the Habitat’s K-D-C model illustrated on the right. If you are trying to find a good A math tutor, our Habitat’s math tutors have excellent track records in helping students achieve great results for ‘O’ level.

Do read more of our K-D-C approach under E math tuition page and how it can help our students in getting an ‘A’ for A math.

We also provide ‘O’ Level Chemistry tuition and ‘O’ Level Physics tuition. Most of our students taking our A math tuition also enrolls with us E Math tuition. Do find out how we assist our students in these subjects too!

### Words from A Math Tuition Students

“I totally disliked math when I came in 2015 after failing my A math [F9 omg?!?] and passing my E math, by only a few marks [C5 omg?!?], but I can’t say I love math now but perhaps not so much of dislike because of the amazing tutor here J improved by 5-7 grades for A math [Wow! Omg!] and 2-3 grades for E math [yayo!]. I didn’t think tuition wld work much for me because I have been to tonnes [1X10^{6}g] of tuition and I still continued to fail in my math L [not a math prodigy obviously]. Most importantly, all the teachers and staff here are all so nice!!! I don’t feel like I am going for tuition every sat but in fact, meeting very very nice ppl. who are always there to support. I’ll miss the times here.”
