About Jason, the Math Tutor.
I am a Math Tutor, Private School Teacher, Blogger, a Former Education Technologist, a Life-Long Learner and a Firm Believer that Most Student can be Train to do Well in Math . I have been tutoring for 21 years since I was an Undergraduate. Initially I tutored many subjects at Primary and Secondary School. Later I realize that to be effective and efficient, it was better for me to focus on only a few subjects.
I have a Bachelor of Science (Mathematics)(Merit) a Business Administration Degree and half a dozen IT certificates, all from Singapore. Upon graduation, I taught at a secondary school for two years before the lure and excitement of joining the E-Learning was too much to resist. I worked with companies like Informatics and AsknLearn for over a decade. As much as I love my job, there came a point where I burned out. Good thing I was familiar with the school syllabus (my involved in developing online courses for schools and part-time tuition on weekends) as it allowed me to quit my job to became a full-time Math Tutor . Now seven years later, I have no regrets whatsoever, I guess I am lucky cause I always end up doing jobs that I love.
I am a Singaporean living in Johor Bahru , I spent my free time hunting for good food in JB. , I also run and swim to prepare for my next half-marathon ( and to feel less guilty about food hunting).
About the Math Tuition
Saturday Morning Tuition in Johor Bahru with Frances (in black), Prescilla and my shy camera girl.
I am very familiar with both the Singapore Cambridge GCE syllabus as well as the International IGCSE syllabus. I conduct small group mathematics tuition for Sec 1 to 5 students at my tuition centre in Woodlands, Singapore and Johor Bahru , Malaysia my adopted country.
After 21 years, I know the Additional Math and Math Exam Syllabus inside out, I keep myself current with the latest syllabus by consulting my teacher friends and monitoring the Singapore Examination and Assessment Board (SEAB) and the Cambridge IGCSE website. I practice questions with students that frequently appear in test and exams and caution students about common mistakes made in each topic.
From 2019, I will resume tutoring Combine Science (Physics/Chemistry) after a three year hiatus. Sorry but i will not resume tutoring Pure Physics or Chemistry.
I bring real-world examples to explain difficult and abstract concepts whenever possible. I encourage two-way communication to make sure that my students' understand what I have taught them and I follow up by giving them questions to apply what they have learnt and to reinforce their learning.
Yup! Thats Me. Same as my Whatspp Profile Pic
I do not hire tutors to teach students in my tuition centers. I had a few bad experiences with hired help. They may have the certificates and grades but it does not necessarily mean that they are to dedicated, competent and the can bond with students.
My tuition fee are very affordable because I keep my overheads low. The Woodlands Tuition Centre is shared between a few tutor , while the Johor Bahru Centre is my residential unit.
I love the accomplishment of seeing my students’ Additional Math and Math grades improve and knowing they understand what they're learning. When their grades improve, their confidence soars and motivation level increase, this creates a virtuous cycle of constant improvement.
