The Primary AL1/A* Mathematics Course offers students the opportunity to streamline their learning to maximise results.
Weekly SessionsStudents attend weekly sessions and learn essential concepts, strategies and exam techniques. More importantly, our coaches use strong and proven Critical Thinking Training techniques developed by Mr Terry Chew to help students develop the Critical Thinking Skills they need to improve 2-grades within 6 months. As part of the Customised Roadmap to AL1, we place high importance on Progress Tracking, where Coaches identify the gaps in students' knowledge and fill them up. This is to ensure strong conceptual understanding and to keep students on track to scoring the results that they want. Students who are found to be weak in a certain topic will be called back for additional class at no additional cost. The small class size ensures that Coaches are able to give each child the attention he or she requires to make learning effective.
Intensive RevisionThese weekly sessions are supplemented with Intensive Holiday Revision Programmes to consolidate their learning. During these holiday programmes, the students’ abilities are stretched by exposing them to upcoming topics or non-routine questions that are likely to appear in the exam. It also gives Coaches an opportunity to provide personalised and thorough help to students for topics which need improvement. As part of the Customised Roadmap to A*/AL1, we place high importance on Progress Tracking, where Coaches identify and fill the gaps in students' knowledge. This is to ensure strong conceptual understanding and to keep students on track to scoring the results that they want. The small class size ensures that Coaches are able to give each child the attention he or she requires to make learning effective.
No Homework / No DrillingDue to our robust Progress Tracking and Intensive Revision schemes, no homework is required. All practicing is done during the course under Coach’s supervision and guidance. Students are highly recommended to practice the topics at home if needed.
Due to limited capacity, we are unable to guarantee availability of slots in our weekly classes. To find out if

TCA's roadmap features a structured plan to build competence and confidence in your child. First, our math tutors identify the student's conceptual gaps and weaknesses. Then, a personalised roadmap is created to help your child to plug the gaps by clarifying concepts. Student progress is recorded each lesson to ensure they are on track to achieving the results they want.
Our math tutors are specially trained to help students develop Critical Thinking in Mathematical Problem-Solving. A research-backed training process is used, which is pertinent to MOE's 21st Century Core Competencies - with its focus on making connections and thinking outside the box. Students are trained to face increasingly tricky and complex cross-topic and unseen problems that have been appearing since 2014.
TCA has developed simple but powerful tools to help students solve problem sums faster and more accurately. Our students are equipped with 28 problem-solving strategies and tools throughout their training. This will not only enable them to simplify complicated problems but also make them less prone to careless mistakes. To ensure that students are fully prepared for the exam, we conduct Exam Simulation and Peak Performance Training to help them be less nervous as well as to perform well during stressful exam situations.
Terry Chew B.Sc. is the first author in Singapore to publish a Maths Olympiad workbook series since 2007. The series 'Unleash the Maths Olympian in You!' is still being used as the Gold-Standard across Southeast Asia today. He is also the author of 'Wicked Mathematics', which helps mainstream math students achieve an A*/AL1 for the PSLE by equipping them with essential problem-solving strategies and tools. His books are used internationally, including countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, China, Spain and the USA and are translated into over 3 languages. He also appears in international media due to his unique teaching methodology – The RA*CE Framework.
The Singapore Math curriculum places a strong emphasis on Critical Thinking Skills as part of its 21st Century Core Competencies.
Students must be able to make connections and think outside the box in order to be successful in school and in the workplace.
With a strong and proven critical thinking training process that is specifically targeted at mathematical problem-solving, TCA has become a highly acclaimed Mathematics Training Centre with its curriculum and teaching framework adopted in Asia, Europe and the USA. Thousands of TCA students in Singapore and overseas have achieved high distinctions in school examinations and international Math Olympiad competitions.
The RA*CE framework is integrated into our curriculum and focuses on strong concepts and critical thinking in mathematical problem-solving. Surpassing the average Maths tuition centre in Singapore, TCA has helped hundreds of students Secure an A*/AL1 for PSLE and achieve distinctions in prestigious Math Olympiad competitions.
Since 2014, 95% of our students have achieved a 2-grade improvement in Mainstream Maths and at least 60% winning rate in Maths Olympiad.
The teaching methodology developed by Mr Terry Chew over 12 years of extensive research used to help our students maximise their results.
Our coaches have more than 72 years of teaching and competition experience combined in helping students achieve top results for Maths.
