About  Math Tutor Jason.

I am a  Full-Time Math Tutor, Former School Teacher, Former Education Technologist, a Life-Long Learner and a Firm believer in a Growth Mindset (a belief that learning & intelligence can grow with time and persistence) 

 

My Qualifications & Work History

I am a big supporter of educational technology. I believe it makes learning easier and more interesting.

Graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Mathematics)(Merit), Business Administration Degree, Cambridge International Diploma in Teaching & Learning  and half a dozen IT certificates. Currently,  I am pursuing a Part-Time Master in Education .

 

I have taught Mathematics and Physics in Private and International Schools Overseas. I also spent a number of years working in the Educational Technology Industry in Singapore.  A decade ago I decided that I needed a change of pace and environment even though I love my job as an Educational Technologist.  Since I was already giving part-time Math tuition on the weekends, I decided to make tuition a full-time job. To this day, I have no regrets whatsoever in making the switch, I guess I am lucky cause I always end up doing stuff that I love.

About the Math Tuition

Math lesson in School. I teach sec 2 Math and sec 3 and 4 A-Math.

After more than 20 years of tutoring, I am very familiar  Singapore Cambridge GCE syllabus as well as the International IGCSE syllabus , I know the Additional Math and Math Exam Syllabus inside out as I keep myself updated with the latest syllabus by consulting my teacher friends, getting feedback from my students and monitoring the Singapore Examination and Assessment Board (SEAB) and the Cambridge IGCSE website.

I practice questions that frequently appear in test and exams and caution students about common mistakes made and the misconceptions students may have for every  Math topic.

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 during lesson as well as homework to apply what they have learnt and to reinforce their learning.

Yup! Thats Me. Same as my Whatspp Profile Pic

I do not Hire other Tutors

I teach students myself at 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 dedicated, competent and able to  motivate and bond with the students. 

Tuition Fees are very Affordable

My tuition fee is very affordable as I keep my costs low; I do not employ support staff nor do I situate the center is a prime location with expensive renovation.  The Woodlands Tuition Centre is shared between three tutors.

What Motivates Me

Yes, money is a motivator, but If it was just for the money, there are other jobs that pay more. What I love is the accomplishment of seeing my students’ Additional Math and Math grades improve and knowing that 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. I derive great happiness whenever I see my students strive to overcoming difficulties and performing to the best of their abilities. I am not implying that students must score distinctions for Math. Even if a student just manage to pass his/her math but have constantly failed previously, I am still very proud of that student and it give me motivation to try harder.
