P5/PSLE Math Ex-MOE Teacher (Bt Timah - Tan Kah Kee MRT)
Date Listed 02/10/2018
P5/PSLE Math Group Tuition (max of 2 or 3) at Bukit Timah. (Next to Tan Kah Kee MRT)
2018 CA1/SA1 :
1 P6 (CA1) scored 100% (only 1 in school with full score)
1 P6 (SA1) came in First in class at 95.5%
1 P5 (SA1) (just joined) at 56%, progress slowly on track
1 P6 (SA1) scored 86% (used to score mid-70s before join)
1 P5 (SA1) scored 96% (used to score low 80s before join)
1 P5 (SA1) scored 61% (just joined), progress on track
4 P6 (SA1) (newly joined and was failing math) now near pass, progress slowly on track
1 P5 (SA1) scored 83% (used to score 60s before join)
100% of PSLE students passed Math. Commendable achievement given that 50% of students failed math prior to joining and 85% of students joined only after P5 SA1 and later. 95% of students improved by at least 1 grade and 50% of students improved by at least 2 grades.
100% of PSLE students had quality passes of B and above. 60% of students achieved A/A*, 1/3 of students in Band A/A* scored A*. (Commendable achievement to theses P6s as none of them scored A before joining and 50% of them had either failed math-"a handful" of students with marks as low as 20s" or had borderline passes before joining).
Students are able to score high or from fail to a pass mainly due to high scores typically achieved in Paper 2 Problem sums. Complicated Paper 2 problem sums are explained very simply such that weaker students (those who previously failed math) are able to understand and feel confident enough to attempt and score in 4 or 5 marks problem sums. A handful of students who used to score low 70s before joining, went on to score Full Marks for P6 Paper 2. Other students (those schools that provide class results statistics) rank above average in Paper 2 in their respective classes.
1 child who was failing math in the low 20s in P5 SA1 and was turned away by 2 private tutors (they cited as not being to help) did well for 2017 prelim. She was awarded an improvement award by school for her achievement in Math in 2017.
1 P6 child who had borderline pass for P6 SA1, joined 4 months before PSLE. He came in 4th in class for 2017 Math Prelim.
1 P6 child who had borderline pass for P6 SA1, joined 3 months before PSLE and attending twice weekly lesson. He came in 2nd in his school’s whole P6 cohort for 2017 Math Prelim.
