Why Does Your Child Need A Maths Tuition?
Students need to invest a significant amount of effort and dedication in order to succeed in Additional Maths (A Maths). Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry are the three main branches that students taking Additional Maths need to master in order to excel. Hence, it is important for them to have an understanding of each of these topics and be able to apply the various principles and techniques learnt when answering questions in exams. Furthermore compared to the E Maths syllabus, A Maths requires a higher level of critical thinking which can be challenging for students to confidently master and apply.
This is where our A Maths tuition classes help! Our A Maths tutor is well-equipped and experienced enough to provide the necessary guidance and support needed in mastering the A Maths syllabus. Your child will also benefit from engaging in one-on-one sessions that will help to clear up any doubts or questions they may have on a daily basis.

Common Challenges Faced By Students With Additional Mathematics
For ‘O’ Level students, taking up Additional Maths (A Maths) is an important milestone as it introduces complex and sophisticated concepts they would not have encountered before. Additionally, they still have to study for their E Maths classes, leading to many students feeling the pressure to excel in both E and A Maths.
Furthermore, students might experience anxiety and mental blocks when facing high-stakes examinations such as the ‘O’ Level exam. This can be a result of not being able to recall all the information learned in school, despite doing well in class tests.
At our tuition classes, our tutors ensure that the students prepare effectively for these exams by thoroughly understanding the different topics of A Maths and practising exam papers. Moreover, the students also develop examination-taking skills and learn effective exam strategies that help them manage the time crunch in the exam and overcome their mental blocks.
Why Choose Knowledge Tap Academy for A Maths Tuition?
1. Teaching Method
A Maths can be challenging and uninteresting for some students. Hence, it is important to follow a conceptual teaching approach where the basic fundamental principles underlying each mathematical concept should be explained. Our A Maths tuition classes aim to establish a solid mathematical foundation that meets the academic standards and difficulty of the Additional Mathematics syllabus.
2. Constant Practice
Continuous and sufficient practice of the Additional Mathematics syllabus is a highly effective way to consolidate concepts and rectify any misconceptions. By practising consistently, students can improve their problem-solving skills, gain confidence and eventually develop the ability to solve problems independently. At our A Maths tuition classes, we emphasise the importance of regular practice, as it helps students to better comprehend and apply the concepts learned.
3. Real-Time Learning
For A Maths, it is essential for students to receive prompt assistance and support as they encounter challenging concepts and problems. Real-time learning offers students the opportunity to clarify their doubts and misunderstandings immediately, rather than having to wait for the next tuition session. We strongly advocate for real-time learning. With the help of our fully integrated learning management system, students can receive prompt answers to their questions and learn key concepts without having to wait for longer. By leveraging technology, we provide on-demand access to concepts and solutions, enabling students to receive help whenever they require it.
What to Expect at Our A Maths Tuition Classes?

Expanding Students' Mathematical Knowledge Through A Maths Tuition
1. Develops Problem-Solving Skills
Advanced Mathematics is a concept-based subject, which means that understanding the concepts and their correct applications in the problems are crucial for success in the exams. In order to properly evaluate a question, students must understand the requirements and apply the relevant Mathematical concept or formula to come up with the right answer.
With the help of our tutor, A Maths students benefit from honing their problem-solving and examination-taking skills. Our tutors understand the struggle students face when tackling A Maths questions. Hence, they focus on improving their weaknesses by making them practise several similar questions in the tuition classes. This aids them greatly during their final exams as they will have an edge over the other students.
2. Learn Effective Exam Strategies
A Maths requires practice and dedication in order to excel, and our experienced tutor understands this. Hence, to ensure you don't lose touch with the subject, they guide you through the practice sessions during the tuition classes and also provide additional help when required. The tutor will also encourage you to take up practice questions to ensure that you are able to master the concepts. This will also include solving the past A Maths papers as part of their preparation strategy.
Doing so will give them the opportunity to apply what they have learned and test themselves. Additionally, it can help them develop effective exam strategies, such as how to allocate their time efficiently between all their questions or how to apply concepts more effectively. This will eventually help them manage their time better during the actual examination.
