Introduction

About the Tutor

Our Math Consultant, Mr Zhou, is an alumnus of Raffles Institution (Gifted Education Programme) and the National University of Singapore. He also acheived a Gold Medal in the Singapore Math Olympiad (ranked 23rd in Singapore) and a Distinction in the American Math Competition. (CLICK HERE to view Mr Zhou's Academic Qualifications and Curriculum Vitae)

- He is a member of The Association of Mathematics Educators (NIE) and has many years of experience in guiding GEP, High Ability and Intergrated Programme students towards excellence in Maths and will be conducting the small group tuition classes. 

- Mr Zhou and his centre has been featured multiple times in The Straits Times, The Sunday Times, The New Paper, 958FM and Channel 8 for his comments on issues ranging from GEP tuition to Math Olympiad questions.

89% of his P6 students from the past 10 years scored A*/A for their PSLE Math Exam (twice the national average)! This achievement is made even more amazing because our policy has always been to accept ALL students from ALL schools without any entry barriers. Students are only expected to come for lessons regularly with a POSITIVE attitude to learning.

- The student is strongly encouraged to bring his school Math file and most recent Math exam paper during the first lesson so that Mr Zhou may go through them and determine what are the general areas to work on.
