Math Nuggets | Math Tuition in Hougang

If you’re a parent, you’ve likely heard many promises and pitches from various tuition centres in Singapore regarding your child’s education.

But when your child’s academic performance starts to slip, you need to go beyond seeking which maths tuition in Singapore has MOE teachers, convenient locations, or trial lessons.

Instead, it’s about finding a solution that can restore their confidence.

Why Do Students Struggle with Learning Maths?

Abstract-Concepts-img-80x80

Abstract Concepts

Math involves abstract thinking, which can be challenging for students who are more accustomed to concrete learning experiences. This disconnect can lead to frustration and self-doubt as they struggle to see the relevance or understand the principles at play.

maths-anxiety-img-80x80

Maths Anxiety

Anxiety around Math creates a fear of making mistakes, leading to a vicious cycle where fear of failure inhibits learning and participation. This anxiety can create a mental block, where students doubt their capabilities and may avoid engaging with Math altogether.

Teaching-Methods-img-80x80

Teaching Methods

One size does not fit all, especially in learning. Traditional teaching approaches can leave many students feeling lost, disconnected, and disengaged. Thus, they might struggle to grasp concepts that they could otherwise understand through a different approach.

Poor-Foundation-img-80x80

Poor Foundation

A weak foundation in basic mathematical skills can leave students feeling insecure about their abilities. Without a solid base, each subsequent topic feels more challenging, hindering students’ progress to more advanced topics.

How Our Small Group Math Tuition Programme Builds Your Child's Confidence in Maths

1) Math tutors with 30+ years of combined teaching experience

At Math Nuggets, our team of education specialists boasts over 30 years of combined teaching experience, specialising in guiding students who are failing to achieving scores around 65%.

We understand intimately what makes maths daunting for students and have mastered the techniques to make it accessible and less intimidating.

Our approach goes beyond just teaching maths; we’re here to build a positive relationship with your child, boost their self-esteem, and foster a genuine understanding and love for maths.

Furthermore, our track record speaks for itself. We have successfully guided countless primary school students to excel in their Math exams and prepared secondary school students for junior college with confidence and skill.

2) Making Math fun with digestible bite-sized modules

At our Math tuition centre, we understand that learning a subject that you don’t like or have no confidence in is double the struggle.

Thus, we’ve made sure that our Math lessons are fun and engaging through digestible, bite-sized modules. We believe that through perseverance, patience, and the right guidance, every student has the potential to excel and even develop a passion for Maths!

Our sessions last 1 hour and 45 minutes, allowing time for detailed explanations, deep understanding, and ample practice. This no-rush approach ensures that students master fundamental skills confidently before advancing to more complex concepts.

Ultimately, our bite-sized, step-by-step mastery is at the heart of our success in building students’ confidence and love for maths.

3) Small class sizes of 4-5 students for personalised attentiveness

Personalised attention is key to effective learning, which is why we limit our small group coaching sessions to a 4-5 student-per-tutor ratio.

This setup ensures that every student receives the focused attention they deserve, allowing our tutors to customise learning plans and materials that meet each individual’s unique needs.

We employ a dynamic and rotational teaching approach, keeping every student engaged in their work while our experienced tutors provide close guidance and support.

This method fosters a conducive learning environment where every moment is an opportunity for growth without anyone left waiting for spoon-fed answers.

Teacher Sandra went the extra mile to help my son during the run up to PSLE, and even gave several free lessons at the final hurdle. Would recommend her to any parent as the group fees are very reasonable too.

Highly recommend Teacher Sandra. My daughter (zhiyao) had been with Teacher Sandra since P5. She used to be very inpatient when she did not know how to do the maths questions and give up doing. Teacher Sandra had managed to built up her confidence in maths and will target on those topics that she is weaker. Real thanks to Teacher Sandra for the extra lessons given to my daughter before psle. really help alot.

My daughter joined Math Nuggets for a trial lesson last July. She was comfortable with Teacher Sandra and thus enrolled for the classes regularly.Teacher Sandra was patient and guided her to close her learning gaps quite quickly. I can see my daughter gaining confidence in the subject at the weighted assessment prep this year. She used to dread Math prior but this year she was practicing consistently and felt her own confidence grow. What was once her worst subject has now become her second best subject in her prelims exams.Thank you Teacher Sandra and Math Nuggets for the patient delivery and guiding of my daughter throughout the 1.5 years. Thank you for seeing her strengths and providing clear instructions and explanations for all the work. She has enjoyed the pacing of the lessons and the small group size helped to keep the pace not too dreary and fostered a camaderie that they can all achieve well together!

Math is not my girl’s forte. However she always looks forward to Tr Sandra’s class. She shared that Tr Sandra makes Math easier to digest & she is able to remember her methods well thus applying it during exams. Tr Sandra always renders help whenever possible. She gives constructive feedback & encouragement even to struggling mums like me! Thank you Math Nuggets!

I would highly recommend Math Nuggets! I have been following their YouTube teaching channel for awhile and can't wait for an available vacancy for my son. When my son finally commenced his lessons with Teacher Sandra, I knew he is at the right place. The small class size allows Teacher Sandra to address individual student's weaknesses and reinforce concepts and good habits through more practice. She also helped to build confidence and my son is no longer fearful of word problems! Thank you Teacher Sandra and Math Nuggets!! Truly a dedicated teacher that teaches from her heart and uses methodology that’s easy for my son to understand.

Highly recommend Math Nuggets! The small class size allows the teacher to give enough focus to each student. Teacher Rachel was able to identify the weaknesses for my girl and tried to reinforce the concepts through more practice. She helped to build confidence and my girl is no longer fearful of Math. Thank you Teacher Rachel and Math Nuggets!!

My girl did a trial lesson mid Sept, recommend by a friend. The centre is very cozy and welcoming. My girl enjoyed the trial and requested to continue, so we waited till October availability to begin. She is lucky to meet Teacher Sandra. Her patience, engagement, simplified cum clear methods, serious but gentle way of teaching my girl, has totally change her attitude towards math subject. From reluctant to try or complete on math questions, to now able to complete the few pages of given math homework, it was a surprise for me. She can now try solving the questions before seeking for help. We can see the change right after trial lesson.We signed up weekly lesson from October as well as the math boots camp for 2 days (revision on overall P4 math), hopeful that my daughter year end result could pass. She was nearly fail during mid year exam.We would like to thank the magical Teacher Sandra for guiding her to be more confident in handling maths in such a short period. Within a few lessons, we are glad that not only she pass, she received the year end exam with improvement to 73%, from a 55% during mid year exam. We are so proud of her!You are amazing, Teacher Sandra! Well deserved reputations! Kudos to you!Look forward to more smiling faces towards her journey of PSLE next!
