Mr Peng sets high standards of teaching, imparting clear and specific concepts to students and sharpening their analytical and evaluation skills. All this, while prioritizing his connection with students on an interpersonal level, in order to fully nurture them.
With over 8 years of teaching experience both as an ex-MOE teacher and as a tutor, Mr Peng has taught both locally and abroad, with many of his students securing government scholarships and places in prestigious universities. Having taught students of different profiles and backgrounds, he firmly believes that his success as a tutor is based on his students' success in their academic results and overall holistic education.
Mr Peng specialises as an O Level and A Level math tutor, teaching our most popular Secondary and JC Math tuition classes, which has constantly received overwhelming response. He has produced top students in various secondary schools, and achieved a consistent rate of distinctions.
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Math Academia. This is a big step in your journey towards securing those distinctions in Math.
“Math is all about practice”. You would have probably heard this from many tutors and teachers and I cannot disagree more. With the ever changing school syllabus, Math is no longer just that. To excel in Math, you need to have a good mix of practice and understanding.
In the recent years, there have been more real-life application questions being set in the O Levels and A Levels, which require students to apply simple theorems on a new level. These questions are also known as application or “Higher Order Thinking” questions. Such questions will differentiate the best students from the average. Routine and procedural questions may help a student pass the examination, but for you to score and be among the best, it is important that you expose yourself to such questions in your revision. Unlike the past, practicing without understanding is no longer relevant and it deprives you of any meaningful learning. When learning lacks meaning and relevance, naturally one would lose interest. That is where the rot sets in and it starts to go downhill. I hope the video in this website gives you further insight into our lessons, where we enforce strong concepts and do intensive drilling.
Getting an A in your exams is not an impossible task. The journey to being proficient in Math does not have to be painful, meaningless and boring. I am confident that I am your best partner in education and I look forward to hearing from you.
Your partner in education,
Ms Jamie Ng Li Xia
