Mr Chris Chen
Mr Chen graduated with Second Class Honours in Business (Bachelor Degree) from University of London.
Influenced by his father who had been a teacher for more than 30 years, Mr Chen has a strong passion for teaching.
He believes that an interest in Mathematics can be cultivated by building up one’s confidence in tackling mathematical problems. He conducts his lesson in a progressive manner, which ensures that students have mastered the foundations before attempting challenging questions. This allows the weak students to build up their confidence in the subject.
In order to make his lessons engaging, he uses different ways and methods to attract his students’ interests in the questions.
Mr Kam Wen Zhong
Mr Kam graduated with a Second Upper Class Honours Bachelor Degree in Mathematical Sciences, with a specialisation in Statistics, from Nanyang Technological University (NTU). During his university days, Mr Kam provided tuition to Secondary students of different levels who went on to achieve good results.
He also conducted Mathematics Remedial Programme in a Secondary School. Being an approachable and amiable individual, Mr Kam is able to build good rapport with his students and engage them in the lesson. Besides that, he recognises the importance of conceptual understanding and conscientious practice to augment students’ confidence in the subject area and subsequently instil an inherent interest in the student for the subject. Thus, Mr Kam uses different methods and real life examples to help students grasp the necessary concepts with the aim of developing a strong foundation in the subject. He believes that when there is understanding together with adequate practice, the student will excel.
Ms Emily Ang
Ms Ang graduated with a Diploma in Electronic and Computing Engineering from Ngee Ann Polytechnic.

Taking pride in her profession, Mdm Tan always prepares for her lessons well in advance. Her desire to be consistently in sync with the latest education system is proof of her commitment towards teaching.
Mr Max Lim
Mr Lim graduated from National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering.
Mr Lim has a strong interest in Science, especially in Physics and Chemistry. During his secondary school days, he has contributed to Maths Hub by designing experimental material and methods to use in Science lessons.
Mr Lim strongly believes in learning through self-discovery and pushes students to learn through self-derivation, rather than absorbing spoon-fed information. Students equipped with the fundamental knowledge in a subject, can excel given the right guidance, subtle prompts and reminders.
Mr Teoh Swee Siang
Swee Siang graduated from National University of Singapore in Bachelor of Electrical & Electronics Engineering. After he has worked for about 14 years as an engineer in the field of automation, information technology areas, he embarked on a mid-career change into the field of education to share his vast experience in math and science with students. As of to date, he has been teaching Secondary 3 and 4 physics, chemistry, A-math and E-math for more than 10 years; both in pure and combined science stream.
