Experienced Teachers

Our classes are taught by our team of full-time Math teachers. Our teachers have extensive experience as well as an established track record. All our teachers are university graduates, and many are scholarship recipients themselves.

Comfortable Classrooms

Our classrooms are designed to be spacious and clean. All classrooms also have HDTVs & tablets for presentations. We use conference-style tables to facilitate group discussions, and adjust the thermostat so our students are cool, comfortable, and can focus on the lesson at hand.

A Well-Planned Syllabus

Every year, our lesson syllabus for all levels is crafted by a selected committee of experienced MOE teachers. Our syllabus is also updated continuously to align closely with the official M.O.E. syllabus in schools. As a result, we teach one of the most comprehensive and detailed maths syllabus available today.

Student Improvement

We closely track every student’s progress to ensure they are learning well. We also seek constant feedback from parents about their child progress in school. This helps us quickly identify problem areas, and we can address them before the exams. So when our students go into the examination hall, we know they are performing at their best.

Class Fees

We offer two types of classes, our highly popular (1) Small Group Classes, and our (2) Lecture Group ClassesFees for both classes are $420/mth, the main difference is in the way we teach. 

(1) Small Group Classes: are very small classes (only 3-6 students per class) where students are taught in a tutorial style (as opposed to a lecture style class).

In this setting, the teacher will be seated at the same table as 3-6 students, and will teach each student individually in turn. For example, the teacher would teach the first student for about 5 mins, then give that first student 1-2 questions to do. And then move on to the next student.

Our Small Group classes were initially created for our weaker students to get personalised attention from the teacher. But this is now our most popular type of class for all students. Higher performing students also like this teaching style, as they can progress much faster ahead of the main cohort.

(2) Lecture Group Classes: are big group classes (8-15 students per class), where all students are taught together in a lecture-style setting (similar to most other tuition centres). Lecture Group Classes follow a fixed syllabus covering all MOE topics, and our curriculum progresses about 2-3 weeks ahead of the official MOE curriculum. Students will receive a fully-printed materials packet, and are also allowed to contact our teachers directly with questions.

  • All classes are once a week, 2 hours long
  • Fees are $420/mth  (we collect $840 every 8-lesson cycle)
  • $40 registration fee & $60 materials fee for all new students
  • Payment made by scanning our QR Code, PayNow, or ibanking
  • 1st Month Trial & Fuss-Free Refund Policy: the entire first month is considered a trial period, and students can stop classes at any time (Unused class fees will be fully refunded within 3-working days, we will also refund the $40 registration & $60 materials fee to you)
  • Simple Withdrawal Policy: if you wish to stop after the first month, we simply ask for a 2-week (2-lesson) notice period. We do not have a deposit system. If our classes are not helping your child, we do not wish to force the classes to continue.
  • Missing Classes: During school term, if you can’t make it for a class, we will schedule a makeup class for you. If that is not possible, we will cancel the class. Fees for the cancelled class will not be counted. We allow only 1 class to be cancelled per quarter.

Lesson Breakdown

Our classes comprise a mixture of (1) lectures, (2) tutorials, and (3) practice & feedback sessions. During lectures, we introduce new topics, guide students through exam scripts, or go over class handouts. For tutorial sessions, lessons reinforce what was covered during lectures, and sometimes teachers guide students through complex maths problems. And during practice & feedback sessions, students are given practice papers to do, which the teachers will then go through, explain common mistakes, and provide solutions. Somtimes, teachers may advise certain to stay back after class if they did particularly poorly in a certain paper to give individual feedback.

Curriculum Goals

We strive to achieve a balance of pushing the students as hard as possible, while also tempering their workload so that they can genuinely enjoy learning maths. We seek to promote a student’s independent learning skills, so that students become more self-reliant, and confident in their ability to do well ― and not just for maths but for every subject they take. Some students learn a little more slowly, some students need more practice, but we believe all students benefit significantly from the constant support and quality instruction that we provide in our classes.

Our Commitment To You: Excellence In Teaching

We are committed to teaching to the best of our ability, to harness the maths prodigy in every student. Importantly, we commit to helping every single student in the class, regardless of their current standard.

We do this by pooling our resources, cross-referencing each others’ work, and by seeking the best academic materials from MOE schools and publishers. We want you to know that your education is important to every one of us at The Maths Lab. And we are here to help each student get through the exam one step at a time. So whether the student is taking the PSLE, the O-levels, or the A-level examination, you can be assured that every aspect of the exam paper has been revised in detail.

Main Classroom

Very Small Class Sizes

In other tuition centers, teachers teach a large class by reciting notes while standing in front of the class. Large classes are economical but does not allow teachers to spot individual weaknesses. Also, students tend to be shy about asking questions. 

Small classes allow us to teach at a personal level. In order to effectively teach every single student, we have kept our class sizes very small. Our average class size is 3-5 students, with a maximum class size of 6 students. This allows our teachers to better relate to each student, and understand every student better. We also observe better class participation rates, and faster student progress in our smaller classes. 

Teacher-Student Meetings

Each student has different questions, even in group classes. Sometimes, students are hesitant to speak out in class.  That’s why we have 1-to-1 Teacher-Student sessions, where teachers meet individually with each student about once a month.

The sessions allow students to seek help individually, and help teachers build a good relationship with the student. Because when we understand our students, and students trust us, it is much easier help them succeed.

  • 1-to-1 Teacher-Students meetings are held every month
  • Each meeting is about 20 mins long
  • Allows teachers to give individual feedback to students
  • Builds rapport & a good relationship with students

5-Tier Syllabus Fits All Students

Our syllabus has 5 different tiers, or 5 varying progress levels, to adapt to the needs of different students. Not everyone learns at the same pace, and some students need to progress a little slower. Many schools attempt a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to teaching. Where schools move at a mandated learning pace that may not be suitable for everyone.

At The Maths Lab, we created a unique 5-tier syllabus model to help cater to the needs of every student. An approach that allows even our weakest students to keep up and improve steadily, yet enables our best students to move on to mastery of the subject.

Tracking Each Student’s Progress

Even in a group setting, we keep track of each student’s progress. Through monthly assessments and weekly homework, our teachers are able to quickly identify problem areas for individual students and address them. If necessary, we may request for that student to take extra classes to help him/her catch up. 

Class Whatsapp Groups

We have Whatsapp groups for each class so that students can post questions & offer solutions interactively. Students learn best when they are free to exchange ideas with each other. Teachers also better understand the problems students face through reading the questions.

Calling Parents

Every 1-2 months, we call parents to update you on your child’s progress. We understand that you are concerned about your child’s academic results, and we want to keep you updated and informed.
