JC Maths Tuition was established by Mr Alric Tan to provide an enriching and effective way to study Mathematics. Under his tutelage, numerous students have overcome their setbacks and become more proficient in the subject.
Despite having a very strong background in Mathematics and Science, Alric pursued Psychology as a degree during his university years (which was a shock to his parents and friends). Nonetheless, Alric proved that it is not the specialised subject knowledge that matters but how knowledge and skills learned from one subject can be applied effectively across many other disciplines. He also applied his effective study method and was able to achieve A’s in many other disciplines like Business, Finance, Language.
During his university years, he started out with part-time private tuition to earn money to ease some of his financial burden. At the end of his university, he realised that his passion is still in Math and Science as he enjoys teaching students these subjects. Nonetheless, he did not regret his choice in his university as studying Psychology also gave him a good perspective of the soft elements (like motivation, cognition, memory) involved in teaching and learning. On top of that, the statistical training he received in university was also relevant in helping him deliver a more effective statistics lesson for his secondary and JC students.
One of Alric’s greatest strengths is to simplify complex concepts into simple concepts that students can grasp easily. He HATES plain memorisation but focuses on teaching tips and tricks to help students relate and remember facts and concepts easily. Alric is also effective in imparting problem-solving skills to students and he constantly encourages students to come up with other ways to solve the same problem. Learning and teaching does not end in the classroom. He also takes time to reply to the constant flooding of Whatsapp messages from his students during off-lesson hours.
By the end of the programme, students have become more confident and improved their grades. Read more to find out why our Math Tuition is the perfect fit for you.
