Mathematics

“A progressive approach to learning mathematics”

We aim to make mathematics simple, fun yet challenging. In class, our students learn to:

  • Grasp strong mathematical concepts
  • Review core and fundamental topics
  • Enhance analytical and heuristic skills in problem-solving
  • Apply mathematical strategies in solving problem sums systematically
  • Stretch learning beyond school syllabus using higher-order thinking approach and non-routine questions
  • Practice with relevant worksheets specially designed by our team of tutors to reinforce and retain methodology taught in class and school.

Levels: Primary 5 – 6 | Sec 1 – 2 Express | Sec 3 – 4 Add-Maths | Sec 1 – 4 IP / IB | JC 1 – 2 | Yr 5 – 6 IB

Mr Koh, former National Junior College (NJC) Further Mathematics lecturer, is very passionate about teaching Mathematics that he founded Modular Education Centre 20 years ago and has since been dedicating his time to nurture students in this subject. He is a highly sought-after tutor for his competence to simplify mathematics concepts clearly with “stunning ease and clarity”. His use of anecdotes to illustrate concepts and ideas is refreshing and it is simple wonder, then, that students’ attitude toward mathematics become more positive and they start to excel academically, from failing to passing and to scoring distinctions.

He customised lessons and worksheets to meet the needs of every student.  Being able to communicate effectively with students of different age group and various levels, he helped to build the confidence of many students who are struggling in the subject.  Parents, seeing great achievements in their older children often requested him to teach the younger ones. Since then he has been teaching the upper primary level, lower and upper secondary levels, junior college level, integrated programme (IP) and the international baccalaureate (IB) programme.

I joined Modular Education when I was in Primary 6. Back then I didn’t like Mathematics. But after being tutored by Mr Koh, my grades improved and I slowly gained interest in it. Mr Koh could identify my weaknesses almost immediately, was able to guide me on ways to improve, and has a voice that attracts the attention of students. He also gave us many interesting ways to memorise certain fundamental formulas which made difficult topics much easier to handle. He showed us that many formulas which students were made to memorise can actually be derived from a few definitions. During lessons, the class is interactive and we are free to discuss different methods of solving questions with Mr Koh, as Mathematics is a subject that is free for people to understand in their own way. Mr Koh and Modular Education has made Mathematics much more fun and exciting for me, and has allowed me to foster friendships that last for life!

Hi Mr Koh, Thank you so much for your help and guidance in Mathematics. For the IB exams, I scored 44 points with 7 points in Math HL. I believe that your teaching and instruction has been very useful considering that I joined the class late in Year 6 and I scored mostly 5 for exams and common test. I hope that you will continue to teach and nurture the next few batches of IB students as you are an excellent teacher.
