Math Tuition: Improve Rapidly With Our START Method, Which Helped 1628+ Students Jump By At Least 2-3 Grades, Within 3 Months Or Less.
Some even improved from fail to ‘A’ in just a few months.
Important note for parents: We have resumed all onsite classes so that students can get the most out of their learning once again.
Covid-19 precautions are put in place for safety of everyone. You may refer to FAQ below for full information.
After having taught more than 1682 students, I realised that for those who are already scoring between 40-60 marks, they can easily solve questions that are testing 1 concept only.
Take a look at this easy Primary Math question:
Adam and Alex have savings that are in the ratio of 5 : 6. After Alex spent $16,
the ratio became 3 : 2. How much savings does Alex have left?
On the other hand, here’s an example of a simple Secondary Math question:
Triangle XYZ is a right angled at angle XZY with XY=17 cm and XZ= 8 cm. Find the length of YZ.
However, when 2 or more topics are combined into one question, many students aren’t able to correctly recognise all the concepts being tested and the exact requirements.
This error is then brought forward when they write out the workings. When this happens, it’s common to see them lose 10-20 marks easily.
Below is a question that many Primary School students will have challenges solving:
One machine took 70 minutes while another took 100 minutes to print the same number of copies of a newsletter. The faster machine printed six more copies of the newsletter per minute than the slower one.
a) The slower machine completed the job at 1pm. At what time was the printing started?
b) What was the total number of copies printed by the two machines?
Similarly, here’s an example of a Secondary Math question that’s testing more than 2 concepts at once:
But why are they facing this challenge?
Due to the limited time in school and the large class size, teachers tend to either share the final answers or briefly go through the workings on how to arrive at the answer.
As a result, it’s common for students to not understand the reasons and logic behind why a question is solved a certain way.
Because of this, whenever students face a multi-concept question, they tend to get stuck, even if there are only slight changes.
This is why I created a step by step method to help students decode any question in the exam correctly and execute the 5 steps immediately after seeing any question.
With this method, your child will always know what to do, ensuring that he doesn’t look precious time and marks in the exam.
Many of my students can quickly jump 2 to 3 grades in 3 months or less, even if they have been scoring C/D consistently.
As a matter of fact, this method has helped students make a jump from as low as F9 to a Distinction, even if they’re in the bottom percentile of their cohort.

The Secret Behind How Our Students Have Been Able To Jump Up To 2-3 Grades Or More Rapidly & Consistently
When I realised the common patterns among students who were scoring between 40-60 marks, I started to think of how to create a systematic system that would be easy to learn and apply to any Math question.
That was when I tapped on my experience as an MOE teacher and a Certified Skilful Teacher from MOE’s Skilful Teaching & Mentoring Programme.
The main purpose of this programme is to equip teachers (who have been specially selected) with a specific set of strategies that help students to overcome individual challenges.
Instead of using a one-size-fits-all method that most teachers are using in school, we customise the solution based on the needs of the students.
Combined with my knowledge of the 5 main steps to problem solving, I developed…
The START Framework
Using this framework, your child will be able to understand the requirements of the question and identify the correct topics/concepts being tested immediately and correctly.
This method even works for long and complex questions that are testing multiple concepts at once.
It helps to guide your child on the thinking process and the exacts steps required to solve problem sums successfully.
This means no more being stuck and staring blankly at the exam paper, wasting precious time… only to misinterpret the questions and answering them wrongly.
This step by step method will remove any need for guesswork, setting your child on the right path to solving the question.
It’s like having a Math teacher in their head guiding them along, which gives them an unfair advantage, especially during the exams.
The best part?
This can be used by any student to get a minimum 2-3 grade jump, regardless of what grade he is scoring now, even if it has been C/D/fail consistently.
Watch what our students have to say:

Why Choose Good School?
MOE lesson plan
Our curriculum is meticulously planned by ex-MOE teachers who have taught in schools for many years. We follow the syllabus used in the national exams closely, to ensure that our content coverage is complete.
Our tutors are always available, even after class, to address any doubts that students may have. We also encourage our students to WhatsApp us in the event they have questions outside of our centre, as we really want students to maximise their learning with us.
Our students have full access to our study area, pantry and available classrooms during our operating hours daily, which they can use for a more focused self-revision or group discussions. This helps to support both self-directed and collaborative learning.
Our Iron Clad Guarantee
If your child does not see at least a 2 grade improvement in the next 3 months,your child can attend extra classes in the same week for other timings at no additional cost.
If he needs even more guidance, we’re also open to scheduling a free 1-on-1 consultation at certain timings to address the specific challenges he’s facing.
This means there is absolutely no risk on your part. We take all the risk to ensure that your child does well!
In fact, the START framework is so effective that I'm confident that your child will see at least a 1 grade jump in just 1 hour at the Free Diagnostic Consultation.

What Covid-19 precautionary measure do you have in place at your centres?
We take a serious view of the health and safety of all students who study in Goodschool and adhere strictly to the following procedures:
- 30 min interval wipedown in between classes
- Coloured zone separation and fixed seating areas for students
- 1 metre social distancing between groups of 5
- Temperature-taking and safe entry
- Option to learn online
Are your lessons planned according to MOE syllabus?
We stick to the syllabi used in the national exams. Our tutors use them to help develop and plan the lessons so that our content coverage is complete. This is to ensure that what is being taught is helpful in helping our students tackle the national exams with confidence.
How big is the class size?
Class sizes are capped at 12. This is to ensure that all of our students are given the attention they need in order for them to master the concepts delivered in our lessons. A small class size is also very useful to allow students to bounce ideas off each other and make learning more diverse, impactful as well as being fun and interesting at the same time.
What if my child can’t make it for the lesson?
We understand that students juggle a lot of activities nowadays. For lessons missed due to valid reasons like illness, school tournaments or other official school activities, a make-up class will be scheduled within the same week to the best of our ability.
Are your tuition fees expensive?
Our tuition fees are highly affordable and competitive compared to other tuition centres. Come for a Free Diagnostic Consultation with your child to learn more about our fees and class schedules.
How fast can I see results?
Our teaching method is easy-to-understand and easy-to-apply. We have had students improve by as many as 7 grades within 3 months. Most of our students have seen at least a 2-grade improvement within 3-8 months.
Do you have any alternative arrangements for classes in light of the COVID-19 situation?
Because of recent developments, our lessons will continue as usual but through LIVE online classes.
Using the TeachArk platform (an online education portal), your child will be able to interact with the teacher and ask questions in real time,just like in a physical classroom setting.
(The lessons are not pre-recorded videos that your child watches passively.)
And he/she will be able to do this from the safety and comfort of your home, saving time from travelling and avoiding unnecessary exposure.
This ensures continuity in learning and that your child does not lag behind, especially if he/she is preparing for the national exams this year.

From F9 To A2 In 3 Months By O Levels
(Javier Chan, Xinmin Secondary School)

“Even though Mr Zhang is busy with his personal life, especially since he has a young son to take care of, he would still not mind us asking him questions through Whatsapp where he will respond as soon as he could.
His dedication towards teaching is largely apparent and greatly appreciated by students.
Despite joining the class merely 3 months before O levels, Mr Zhang’s patience and in-depth knowledge about the subjects he teaches allowed me to pull up my Amath grade from F9 to A2 as well.”
From D7 To A2 For A. Maths
(Shirley Loh, Greendale Secondary School)
Click to read more…
“Mr Zhang helped me immensely in A Maths as I would always fail or just pass my exams.
I had no confidence in doing the subject and I have even thought of dropping A maths.
Instead of telling us to memorise the steps to answering questions, like how many other teachers would do, he explained the reasons for them.
He is constantly pushing his students to strive for the better. I would always send him maths questions I do not know and he would answer and explain them patiently!”
Rather than doing the same thing again and blindly practicing paper after paper without knowing where he went wrong,
Bring your child down to our centre, so he can finally have some clarity on how to improve and feel less lost and less demoralised when studying for Maths.
