Mr Alex Choong
Mr Choong graduated with Second Upper Class Honours in Mathematical Sciences from Nanyang Technological University, majoring in Statistics and minoring in Economics.
Mr Choong’s strong interest in Mathematics has led him to participate in competitions such as the Singapore – Asia Pacific Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools and National Mathematical Olympiad Competition and has achieved Distinction in both competitions. In addition, Mr Choong has passed the Mensa Singapore Raven’s IQ Test.
Mr Choong’s ability in Mathematics was recognized in 2005 when he was invited to train a group of 8 primary school students who competed in the Malaysia state-level SMOPS and won the second runner-up team prize. In university, Mr Choong was a peer tutor to his course mates, helping them in understanding Mathematical theories and solving difficult questions.
Mr Choong believes that an interest in Mathematics can be cultivated and every child with a strong interest in Mathematics can excel in this subject.

Mr Way Tan
Mr Tan graduated from the National University of Singapore with Double Honours (Highest Distinction) in Mathematics & Computer Science. He was conferred the Leong Teng Kiang Memorial Prize (Top Student in Mathematics) and GIC Medal & Prize (Top Computing Student from the University Scholars Programme).
Mr Tan’s love for mathematics led him to excel in many Math Olympiads since a young age. In primary school, he placed 1st in the RIPMWC and 2nd in the NMOS + SMOPS; while in NUS High School, he came in 1st in the SMO Junior + Senior and 2nd in the SMO Open. His mathematical engagements extended beyond Olympiads: participating in online puzzle contests, organising math training camps and most notably, earning the top prize in the A*STAR Talent Search for his research project.
Mr Tan joined Maths Hub in 2016, where he first discovered an affinity towards teaching. He has since continued to seek out diverse teaching experiences, such as conducting Math & Informatics Olympiad training in Secondary Schools/JCs and tutoring a 2nd-year undergraduate NUS course – consistently receiving positive reviews from teachers and students alike. Mr Tan takes pleasure in helping students understand complex concepts through real-life analogies, interdisciplinary connections, humour, and gentle encouragement.
