A Math Tuition

Additional Mathematics (A Math) is a core subject that facilitates the learning of the higher level Math modules in the tertiary courses (poly or JC etc). Without A Math, some courses will be out of bounds for the students and some Math modules will be too abstract to understand.

In the N level and O level syllabus, A Math involves a huge application of algebra knowledge (mastered in Sec 1 and Sec 2) on the new topics in Sec 3 and Sec 4. While there are more formulas in A Math than E Math, the solutions in A Math are often long and tedious. It also requires the students to develop a deep understanding of the concepts as well as acute analysis of the questions.

Einstein A Math curriculum is meticulously crafted to sharpen the students’ understanding on the topics. Einstein champions consistency and active learning in the students, equip them with the skills and wits to carve out their edge in A Math.
