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 Jackie Chieng
Mr Jackie graduated with bachelor in Aerospace Engineering and further pursed his master degree in Education, majoring in Mathematics. Mr Jackie actively took part in mathematics competitions when he was in secondary school and he was awarded High Distinction in Australian Mathematics Competition (Senior Division).
Mr Jackie’s strong passion in both Mathematics and teaching led him to become an educator for the past 6 years. Being an educator, Mr Jackie believes that consistent self-improving in his teaching is important to productively deliver in each lesson.
Good lesson planning is essential to the process of teaching and learning. By setting himself as an example, Mr Jackie hopes that his students can learn Mathematics effectively and interestingly.
Mr Dean Ang

Mr Way Tan
Mr Tan graduated from NUS High School, where he had numerous opportunities to pursue his passion for Mathematics.
From a young age, Mr Tan has participated in many math competitions out of enjoyment, and was pleasantly surprised by very positive results. He placed in the top 2 for the RIPMWC, NMOS and SMOPS in primary school, and likewise for the 3 categories of the SMO. Mr Tan also had the opportunity to interact with top local and overseas talents through international competitions, as well as being part of the national team for 3 years.
These experiences inspired Mr Tan to explore different aspects of mathematics, including logic puzzles and math modelling, as well as conducting training in school. Mr Tan also embarked on a math research project which placed 1st in the A*STAR Talent Search. He hopes that these diverse experiences will allow him to stimulate interest in his students.
Ms Yvonne Wong
Ms Wong graduated from the Teachers’ Training College and has been educating young children for more than 10 years. She was once a supervisor of a kindergarten.
Ms Wong bonds very well with her students as she recognises their progression through encouragement and rewards. Many students who were taught by her had improved significantly in grades.
Mr Matthias Liau
Mr Liau graduated from NUS High School with Top Honours in Chemistry.
As a chemistry enthusiast, Mr Liau has participated in chemistry olympiads and represented Singapore in the IChO previously. He has also trained many students for the olympiads as well.Mr Liau strongly believes that with the right motivation to learn, students can excel in any subject and olympiad.
Mr Teddy Ong
Mr Ong graduated from NUS High School, where he tirelessly pursued his passion for Mathematics and Physics.
Mr Ong began studying Math Olympiad from a young age and has participated in many math competitions. He placed 5th in NMOS and 12th in SMOPS in primary school and consistently placed in Top 30 for the 3 categories of the SMO. Mr Ong also had the opportunity to participate in the Asia-Pacific Math Olympiad as part of the national team for 2 years.
His passion for Physics was sparked in Year 1 in NUS High. He went on to be the youngest person to achieve a gold medal at SJPO, and won gold medals for SJPO and SPhO for all his participating years. At the Asian Physics Olympiad, he placed 4th in Experiment Round and was the top scorer in Singapore Team. At the International Physics Olympiad, he clinched a gold medal and was the highest theory scorer in Singapore Team.
These experiences inspired Mr Ong to explore different aspects of Mathematics and Physics. His hobby is to apply geometry from Math Olympiad into physics. Mr Ong also did physics research extensively, winning silver medals at the Singapore Young Physicist’s Tournament (SYPT) and Singapore Science and Engineering Fair (SSEF). He embarked on a physics research project which placed 3rd in the A*STAR Talent Search. He hopes that these diverse experiences will allow him to connect with his students and guide them towards success.
