**Secondary Math Tuition**

LK Academy's Secondary Math tuition in Singapore focuses on the journey during the transition from primary six into secondary level Math.

## The Role of Confidence in Secondary Maths Tuition

At LK Academy, we think that since confidence permeates our daily lives, it is essential for both the spoken and written portions of the exam.

Lessons in our Secondary Maths Tuition are in line with MOE curricula for public schools. In order to prepare for school evaluations, sections of the maths exam are designed such that the components are completed in our classes.

**Confidence**? Confidence is the belief in one's ability to succeed. Improving the ability comes with being prepared.

Lessons are aligned with MOE syllabus for mainstream schools. Segments of the Math paper are planned such that the components are executed in our classes in preparation for school assessments.

## Secondary Math Tuition

LK Academy's Confidence for Secondary Maths focuses on concepts and solving methods. Together with the solving methods, maths fundamentals are paramount to acing Maths exam questions. LK Academy's incorporation of IQ and EQ in our Secondary Maths Tuition ensures that our learners become subject matter experts.

LK Academy's curriculum embodies a heuristic method of learning. This hands-on and visualisation process will allow students to develop a higher order of thinking. This leads to novel ideas for problem-solving. Instead of solving Maths problems in the Secondary Maths Tuition classes the conventional way and memorising lots of formulas, we hone students' confidence by allowing them the freedom to think of other solutions outside the formulas. This method being used in the Secondary Maths Tuition allows our students to be courageous and risk-takers.

Therefore, our Secondary Maths Tuition addresses the difficulties with intensive support to bridge the gap for the learner. This will set the tone to motivate the learner for the rest of their secondary school journey.

## Methodology

Students will be guided on learning and applying math vocabulary in the Secondary Math tuition we offer. With practice, they will understand mathematical concepts and skills which allows them to break down and infer from questions. Students will be supported on how to make mathematical connections to link what the question is asking and to proceed with an accurate method. Through our curriculum for Secondary Math Tuition, students will be able to build confidence in themselves for math. At LK Academy, we understand that emotional wellbeing is paramount thus with our focus on a blend of IQ and EQ, our students will be well placed to excel.

Students will learn how to formulate and sequence problems while making viable assumptions. This trains them to select appropriate methods to solve problems.

With LK Academy's unique method in teaching Secondary Math tuition, students will become proficient and take responsibility to ensure learning continues out of the classroom.

## What Parents Say

"LK has truly nurtured my child's interest genuinely to enjoy learning and understanding of the language. My child looks forward to class every week and looks forward to meeting with her teacher. A happy environment with the patient guidance of her teacher really enabled her to benefit academically. Not only that, she has grown in her personal development as well when it comes to having confidence to speak and express her thoughts well.

Her confidence had been slowly built to apply what she has learnt. She knows she can do it for her daily work and exam papers!"
