ABOUT ME

1/2

Hi, my name is Syahiran, and I graduated from NUS School of Computing with an honours degree in Computer Science. Prior to that, I attended Victoria Junior College, taking Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Economics.

 

Having more than 5 years of experience in private tutoring, I am confident in helping students maximise their potential in secondary-level Mathematics and Additional Mathematics.  

 

My background in Computer Science has influenced my teaching style where I leverage on technology to help students sharpen their logical reasoning and mathematical problem-solving skills.   

 

The emphasis in my approach is not on the blind memorisation of formulae, but on building a strong foundation and having a complete understanding of mathematical concepts.

 

Please feel free to contact me for a consultation and let's see how I can help!

 

PEDAGOGICAL FRAMEWORK

STAGE 1

Introduction

STAGE 2

Familiarisation

STAGE 3

Application

Students acquire knowledge of each new topic at the macro level. Relevant mathematical apps are incorporated into lessons to supplement their understanding.

For each new concept, we will go through a worked example at the micro level. At this stage, step-by-step guidance is provided for students to gain familiarity and confidence.

After each worked example, students demonstrate understanding of that specific concept by attempting practice questions. When mistakes are made at this stage, any blindspots can be addressed immediately.

STAGE 4

Mastery

STAGE 5

Agility

STAGE 6

Strategy

Mastery of each topic is established only upon successful completion of a topical quiz with no prompting. Reinforcement of concepts will take place as necessary and students will be reassessed till a satisfactory standard is reached.

Modular quizzes expose students to a variety of questions across different topics. This stage is an important intermediary step in letting students strengthen their mental agility and stamina.

Students will sit for mock exams under simulated conditions to prepare for any major exams. At this stage, students are trained to manage their time efficiently and present their solutions as concisely as possible.
