My main strength is to be able to engage the child. When working with a student, I identify and help them tap on their strengths to make significant improvements.

John Yeo, who has been coaching the subject for 10 years, hopes to help as many students as he can. Several changes in the syllabus over the past years have called for him to adopt different teaching methods towards the subject. However, Yeo’s belief remains that math does not have to be difficult for the 12-year-olds.
“I have created clearer solutions sheets to help your child excel in word problems in a systematic and structured way… any Maths problem can be and will be easy for your child to master,” claims Yeo.
While knowing how to solve math problems are part of his teaching outcomes, Yeo also believes that his experience in coaching has helped him to create the success stories shared on his blog.
“My main strength is to be able to engage the child. When working with a student, I identify and help them tap on their strengths to make significant improvements,” Yeo goes on to highlight that a positive relationship between the child and tutor is essential to help the child gain interest in learning the subject.
For example, he believes that by building rapport with the child and recognizing his needs, appropriate techniques can then be applied to the learning process. These include helping the child to understand the thought process towards the solution, practicing regularly, as well as consistently offering positive feedback to empower the child.
Yeo offers solutions to top schools maths problems for those looking for a challenge and parents can subscribe to his blog when new problems and solutions are published online. Since he feels that those in deeper need of help are students who are struggling to pass math, he welcomes the challenge of helping failing students to excel in it.
To add credit to his teaching methods, Yeo also displays testimonials from his students on his blog. These include one who claimed that his results “improved from F to B within 2 short months.” This same student who believes that he can eventually obtain a A* for his PSLE inspired Yeo to share a blog post on “7 Proven Steps to Improve P6 Maths Grades from Fail to A Grade Within 2 Weeks.”
With the important examination getting closer, teachers who specialize in PSLE tuition in Singapore aim to help as many students as they can within this short period of time. A website such as Yeo’s therefore provides convenient access for the busy parents.
“I smile each time I hear someone has got a better Maths grade because of me,” says Yeo, who declares that his motivation comes from seeing improvements in his students.
