1-1 Home Tuition

Our Maths Home Tuition Programme was initially borne out of numerous requests by parents for us to tutor their children at their residence during exam periods.

One of the Largest Maths Home Tuition Programmes in SG

Since it first started many years ago, our Maths Home Tuition Programme now has a very established track record ― with hundreds of students being home tutored by our Maths teachers every year. Parents tell us they appreciate our comprehensive Maths syllabus & materials. All home tutors are also our full-time mainstream teachers, so students benefit from a highly systematic and effective lesson plan each class.

Experienced Full-Time Tutors

Our Maths home tutors are our full-time staff, many of whom also teach the mainstream classes at our centres. About half of our Maths tutors are scholarship recipients themselves, with numerous 1st Class Honours recipients. Most of our home tutors have 7-15 years of teaching experience, and are also MOE registered.

Improvement In Results

Our Maths Home Tuition Programme is highly effective, and students generally see a visible improvement in results within 3-6 months. This is because students receive highly individualised attention in our 1-1 lessons, and our tutors are able to focus directly on a student’s weak areas. As our students improves, the tutors expose the student to more advanced questions until they eventually start outperforming their peers.

Personalised Lesson Plans

Our tutors prepare lesson plans specifically for each student, so that each lesson fits the learning curve of that particular student. Lessons are also structured to effectively use the limited tuition time. Our Maths Home Tution Program uses our Intensive Class Syllabus materials. All materials are provided by us, and students will have everything they need for each class.

1-to-1 Classrooms Available

If your home is not conducive for having home tuition, we have 1-to-1 classrooms available at all our centres. There is no extra charge to use these rooms (although they are subject to availability). These rooms are useful for students who need a quiet & comfortable environment to focus during lessons.

Why is there a wide range of fees for tutors? 

The reason our tutor fees are so varied is because we have a wide range of teachers (all of whom specialise in teaching maths), but each teacher has their own unique set of qualifications and teaching experience levels. Generally, tuition fees for highly experienced & highly qualified teachers tend to be higher. Overall, there are (4) main factors that determine the fees of our teachers:

  • Student Improvement Rate
  • Experience Level of Tutor
  • Positive Parental Feedback
  • Academic Qualifications of Tutor

(1) Student Improvement

Students come for maths tuition primarily to master the subject matter & improve their grades. We understand this. And so every teacher has a specific responsibility towards improving each student’s grade in Maths. Teachers who are proficient at teaching, and whose students improve significantly, are more popular and command higher teaching fees.

(2) Experience Level

Teachers with more years of experience (particularly with MOE schools) usually have higher fees. Notwithstanding, all our teachers have a minimum of 5-years teaching experience. Teachers with more experience are not necessarily always better teachers, but overall, we do see a correlation between experience levels and their ability to teach well.

(3) Positive Parental Feedback

We regularly ask parents about the performance & teaching aptitude of our home tuition teachers. Often we ask if the teachers are (a) reliable, (b) punctual, and (c) pro-active in teaching & marking tasks. Teachers who are serious and professional in their tutoring work are reciprocated with higher salaries.

(4) Academic Qualifications

Our teaching team today comprises of teachers who are alumni from some of the top universities around the world. Many of our teachers were scholarship students themselves, and worked hard through to university graduation. Teachers with exceptional academic credentials and scholarship merits will have slightly higher fees rates.

Lesson Breakdown

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 curriculum, where students, through practice and revision, grow to master the subject matter.

Curriculum Goals

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 initially help students obtain a thorough understanding of the topics & subject matter. And moving later towards improving 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.

Curriculum Planning

  • A core group of ex-MOE teachers & Maths Ph.D graduates oversee our curriculum
  • All teachers are university graduates
  • Many of our teachers are 1st class honours (ask for our certificates)
  • Most have 7-15 yrs of teaching experience

Highly Qualified + Reliable

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 students, and pro-activeness when performing teaching tasks.

Very Experienced

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.

Each Child is Supported by Our Entire Team

Even when we assign a home tutor to your child, that child 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 every way we can. 

Teacher-Parent Updates

We find students improve the best when their parents are concerned & vested in their progress. We seek to update 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

Whether you want to know how to select a teacher, or whether you simply want to ask about our schedule, our tuition coordination team is here to help you.

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 Group 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.

Monthly Feedback to Parents

Every month, our teachers will reach out to you as the parent to give feedback about the progress of your child. In particular, the teacher will update you about (1) topics covered, (2) materials used in teaching, as well as (3) your child’s progress. We use this ensure that you are kept abreast of all developments in your child’s maths tuition — and if necessary, to ask for your assistance in certain aspects of our tuition lessons.
