Why Small Group?
Large classes used to be very popular in the past, however nowadays more and more parents feedback that their children don’t receive the attention they need.
One-to-one tuition promises undivided attention from the tutor but learning can become a lonely affair.
Small groups, consisting of 3-6 learners, is a good balance between a large class and one-to-one tuition.
In a small group tuition setting, learners experience the benefits of:
- Attentiveness from tutor
- Customized learning plans for every learner
- Peer support and camaraderie
Since 2012, I have started conducting small group tuition.
In 2019, I moved my small group classes online.
How Are Lessons Conducted?
There are three parts to the each lesson.
Part 1: Review
Go through past week homework. Clarify any doubts.
Part 2: Discover
Introduce the next concept or formula. I typically go through a worked example, carefully explaining the rationale behind every step. This is followed by students trying out a similar question. Any doubts are clarified.
Part 3: Reflect
Gather feedback and brief about homework.
Why People Fail In Maths?
The three biggest reasons for learners to do poorly in Maths is this:
- Lack of understanding
- Lack of exam strategies
- Lack of practice
I help my learners tackle the first challenge by focusing on clarity in lessons. I have 12 years of experience in doing this.
I help them tackle the second challenge by putting them through exam simulations and coaching them on exam techniques, e.g. time management.
However, I will make it very clear right from the start, that if a learner does not put in effort to practice after lessons, and do the assigned homework, there is no magic that will help him or her improve.
Homework is issued via a PDF sent through WhatsApp. Typically there are about 8 questions. Answers, but not working, are provided to allow student to self-check their results.
Whether they got their answers right, students are required to send me their solutions via WhatsApp AT LEAST 1 DAY before the actual lesson.
Removal From Class
If a learner do not stick to his or her commitment, I reserve the rights to remove him or her from my class.
