Our Professional Math Home Tuition Program is one of the most effective ways to obtain a distinction in Maths.
Our private 1-to-1 home tutors in this programme are the same teachers that teach in our group classes. This means that they are our full-time employees, and have passed our own interview screenings and academic background checks. It also means our home tutors understand our syllabus and learning material very well. In fact, our Professional Home Tuition Program follows our Intensive Class programme, except that it is conducted at your residence.
Our teachers focus only on teaching Maths, and they do this everyday in our group classes. As such, we believe our teachers are the amongst the most qualified and experienced math tutors in Singapore. Every teacher has gone through 2 rounds of interviews, and has to fulfill a 14-set academic criteria (including performing very well in their past maths exams). In addition, we actively seek parent feedback on our tutors every quarter and grade our own tutors on their students’ performance.
Over the past 10 years, our Professional Home Tuition programme has established a proven track record, using an effective and engaging maths pedagogy. We have one of the most established Math Home Tuition Programmes, with hundreds of students being tutored by our teachers each year. If you’re looking for a professional maths tutor, speak with us. We’ll see how we can best help your child.
1-to-1 Classrooms Available
If your home is not conducive for having home tuition, we have 1-to-1 classrooms available as well. For home tuition students, there is no extra charge to use these rooms (although they are subject to availability). These rooms are particularly useful for students who still want 1-to-1 tuition, but want a quiet & comfortable environment to focus during lessons.

Home Tuition Features

- A customised study plan
- 1-to-1 students usually see significant results improvement
- All tutors are university graduates (many are 1st Class Honours)
- Lessons follow our Intensive syllabus plan
- All learning materials are provided
Our lesson for home tuition follow our Intensive Syllabus plan, but are specifically prepared for the needs of an individual student. Our home tuition classes generally comprise (1) tutorials and (2) practice & feedback sessions. Tutorials are meant to introduce new topics, and provide students with an overall understand of the topic. Usually teachers go through class handouts and school notes with the student, coaching them in problem solving methods for that topic. Practice & feedback sessions are the backbone of our home tuition cirriculum, where students, through practice and revision, grow to master the subject matter.
Our broad-based goal is to help our students to outperform in the exams. Right from the first lesson, the teacher will ask for the student’s past exam papers to review. This is so we can come up with a study plan as soon as possible. Our home tuition programme is designed to help students obtain a thorough understanding of the topics & subject matter. and then later on to improve their problem solving skills through practice & revision. Because our lessons are highly customised and attenuated to the specific needs of the student, our home tuition students generally improve faster than group-based tuition.
Our Commitment To You: Professionalism & Responsibility
Our home tutors are the same teachers that teach at our centres. And as with our centre classes, we are committed to teaching our home tuition students to the best of our abilities. You will find our teachers to be professional, reliable, and proficient at teaching.

Our support staff (& sometimes our teachers) will take your call and answer your questions. We understand you may be anxious about your child’s maths performance, and we are available & ready to help you as best we can. Starting from selecting a suitable teacher, to scheduling the first class, to payment options, and later on to assessing your child’s progress― we will guide you each step of the way. Call us today to see how we can help.
We attribute most of our success in teaching Maths to one crucial factor ― our teachers. We work very hard to ensure we have one of the best qualified & experienced team of Maths teachers in Singapore. Our selection process is rigorous; and all teachers are assessed every quarter by their students, as well as through parental feedback channels. Above & beyond teaching proficiency, we prize teachers that demonstrate responsibility and pro-activeness. Responsibiliity towards their work, and pro-activeness in improving their own teaching skills.
- A core group of Maths PhD teachers oversee our cirriculum
- All tutors are university graduates
- Many are 1st class honours (ask for our certs)
- Most tutors have 7-15yrs of teaching experience
- All tutors are our full-time staff
At least 5-yrs of teaching experience is required before we hire a teacher (most of our teachers have 7-15yrs of experience). We believe teaching experience is important not just to learn the subject matter, but also to deal with the complex needs of different students. Highly experienced teachers are usually able to deliver content in a way that is both understandable and meaningful to the student. Our best teachers are those are able to connect well with the students, and earn the student’s trust, and who then coax the students towards improving themselves in the subject.
Your Child is Supported by Our Entire Team
Even when we assign a home tutor to your child, he/she has the support of the entire team here at The Maths Lab. Every student is assigned both a tutor and a supervising teacher (at the office). Collectively, they are responsible for both the lesson plan & the academic progress of the student. If the tutor is sick, we have alternative teachers to stand-in, so you never miss a lesson close to the exams. And if necessary, your child may also seek help from other teachers at the centre. Here at The Maths Lab, our team is committed to helping every student in whatever way we can.
We find students improve the best when their parents are concerned & vested in their progress. We seek to communicate with parents at least once a month to appraise the parent of the student’s progress, as well as to raise any concerns we may have. If necessary, we ask parents to come down to the office so we can better explain the child’s difficulties in learning, and what we are doing to help your child improve. We believe that an open & honest communication channel between the tutor & the parent is important, to allow us to do our best in helping your child improve.
Our Tuition Coordinators
Whatsapp Group With Parents
We often set-up Whatsapp groups between the parent, student, and tutor so that everyone can be on the same page. We have found this to be an efficient way of communicating with the student, while allowing the parent(s) to be on top of the week-to-week lesson plan and homework assignments.
Re-Join Goup Classes
Home tuition students who have significantly improved their grades have the option of joining our group classes. Group classes tend to be more interactive, and students learn better then they exchange ideas with each other. Fees for group classes are also lower than for home tuition.
Quarterly Parents Feedback
About every 3 months, we (from the office) reach out to all parents to ask for feedback about the currently-assigned tutor. In particular, we want to know if the tutor has been (1) punctual, (2) reliable, and (3) effective. We use this ensure that your tutor has been effective & diligent — and if necessary, we will change the tutor for you.
