01Is your Child still having problem understanding the mathematical concepts?

02Is your Child still struggling with the subject despite having a math tutor and going for tuition classes?

03Not having improvement in his or her grade despite putting in much effort?

As a former school mathematics teacher with 20 years of experience I understand your stress as well as your frustration. Having taught over hundreds of students myself, I am able to relate and understand the struggle face by student in the learning of mathematics.
I have been a mathematics educator for about 20 years. I hold a 2nd Upper Honours Degree in Mathematics. Throughout the years, I had taught in various local school (including Hwa Chong) as well as International School (I am a MOE as well as IBDP trained teacher). To date, I have personally coached mathematics to a thousand of students across various levels (from Sec 1 to JC 2). My student base consists of a good mix of students from Choa Chu Kang area such as Bukit Panjang Govt High, Kranji Secondary, Choa Chu Kang Secondary and Pioneer JC as well as from top Institution such as RI, HCI, NJC and ACJC. 
Additional Mathematics in the ‘O’ level examination consists of 2 papers. Paper 1 is a 2 hours paper with 13 questions while Paper 2 is a 2.5 hours paper with 11 questions.

Know the prerequisite of each topic
There are many topics in mathematics which are inter related. Knowing the prerequisite will help you identify which area of math you need to reinforce your knowledge on in order to tackle the topic well. For example, to tackle the topic on logarithms, one must know the topic on Indices well enough.

Regular Practice is a must
As the age old adage says “Practice makes perfect”. Mathematics cannot be studied just by reading the textbook like a novel. The key to excel in mathematics is through regular practice. By doing lots of practices one will have a good feel of the topics and will be less prone to making careless mistakes.

H2 Mathematics paper in the Alevel exam consists of two 3hour papers. Paper 1 is 100% pure math while paper 2 consists of 40% pure math and 60% statistics. JC H2 Math has the highest jump in difficulty level from secondary Additional math. As such, it is not surprising to see some student who ace in Additional math can end up struggling badly in JC H2 Math.
Hence, there are a few tips one should definitely follow in order to ace the subject. 
Have a clear understanding of the concept
In secondary Additional math, most of the questions asked are more or less similar. Hence with enough practice one should be able to overcome it. However, in H2 math, just blindly practicing questions alone will not enable you to get good grades due to the substantial increase in complexity of the subject. In H2 Math the questions that are being ask are of more variety and no longer to be so straight forward, so one must have a very clear understanding of the concept behind in order to solve them.

Master the Key Topics Well
To really do well in H2 Math, the topics on Calculus (i.e. Differentiation, Integration and Differential Equation) and Vectors and Complex numbers cannot be ignored. These few topics alone have a combine weightage of 80 to 90 marks of the total weightage of the two papers. So students must master these two topics well in order to have a realistic chance to achieve an 'A' in the A level exam.

Continuous Practice
It is an undeniable fact that one of the key to excel in math is to have lots of practice. Once you have a clear understanding of the concept, one must learn how to apply the concept to solve different variety of questions to further reinforce their knowledge and this is achieve by practicing more questions than just doing the tutorials. Doing just tutorials will not enable you to pass the 'A' level exam or even the promo exam. To do well, other than doing tutorials students need to practice the intermediate or the advanced level questions from other school past years promo or preliminary exam papers.

Be consistent in your revision
As H2 Math is a demanding subject, consistent revision is a must. Having a consistent revision is a common practice among those student who scored an A or B in the exam. Through my years of experience, many students who do not achieve at least a grade B did not revise their work consistently. Many only start their revision 2 months before the A level which will not be very effective as you have to absorb everything you have learn for the past one and a half year into a short duration.

Richard Math Academy is a home base mathematics learning program. It was started by Mr Richard in 2011 and has since been providing quality maths tuition classes to students from Secondary 1 to Junior College 2. To date about 200 students has joined the program and has benefited greatly.

I joined Mr Richard's math tuition Classes in July of my J2 year. Up to that point, I have been scoring consistent U grades for test and exams. I was initially reluctant to take up tuition classes, however Mr Richard's patient guidance and detailed explanation were crucial and worth the time spent. Improvement were made within two months as seen in my preliminary results in which I scored an E. Mr Richard continued to push and encouraged me in the lead up to the 'A' level exam in which I obtained a grade B. Without Mr Richard's classes, I most likely would not have scored as well as I did.

Here're Five Reasons why you should Choose Richard Math Academy#1. Experienced Qualified Teacher
All lesson will be conducted by Mr Richard who has closed to 20 years of teaching experience with a 2nd Class Upper Honour in Mathematics. He had also taught in renowned school such as Hwa Chong Institution. With his tremendous experience, he is well aware of any changes in the MOE syllabus at his fingertips. #2. Proven Track Record
Ever since becoming a full time tutor in 2010, Mr Richard has taught few hundreds of students and almost 100% of the students has seen at least a 2 grade improvement in their results. Some of the students even have their grades jump from F9 to A1 ('O' level) or U to A ('A' level). #3. Small Class Size(Max. of 3 per class)
With a small class size, students will get the maximum attention from the tutor. In this way the tutor is able to easily identify each of the student weaknesses thereby allowing the tutor to address the problem of each student appropriately and effectively. All these cannot be done effectively when the class size are big. #4. Customize Learning
Learning plan are customized based on the student ability, learning styles and his/her math foundation. For example, students with a stronger mathematical ability will be expose to more advance questions to further enhance their knowledge while those with a weaker foundation will spend a bit more time building their basic knowledge and honing their skills before moving on to the intermediate level. #5. Up to Date learning Materials
All the worksheets are updated yearly to include the latest type of examination questions so that students are made aware of and expose to the latest trend and the numerous different variety of questions. Latest examination papers will also be given during the revision period.
