How the GrayMatter Program Helps Students

H2 Mathematics is an important subject pre-requisite to many university courses like Business Analytics, Computing and most Engineering course including BioMed, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental and Industrial & Systems Engineering.

The GrayMatter JC Maths tuition program helps students relate Mathematics to real-life situations. Our eventual aim is not just to help students develop practical examination techniques to achieve an  A, but also to cultivate an appreciation and passion for Mathematics.

To be able to solve complex Math problems, students need to develop perseverance, robustness in thinking and sensitivity to patterns which are practical life skills. Students who start to appreciate the elegance and beauty of Mathematics will usually score better in the A level examinations and will continue to develop life-long learning skills.

Over the years, we have developed concise materials to accelerate students’ learning cycle.  We recognise that there are students with differing abilities, and this requires customised and innovative pedagogical methods. For example, we have incorporated simple coding and programming for certain Math topics, using a Graphing calculator.

New Syllabus Requirements

We are deeply familiar with the latest A level syllabus requirements. The new syllabus places a lot more emphasis on the integration and application of various topics. For example, a question in the context of Finance relating to banking and insurance, requires students to relate to topics spanning across a spectrum of topics including Sequence and Series, Probability and Sampling distributions.

As such, we have developed new learning materials to help students tackle these new types of questions.

Math has always been a great struggle for me as I faced difficulties understanding concepts and applying them to questions. However through lessons and concise notes at GrayMatter, I began to solve questions with understanding and found

Mr Lim has helped me understand complex math concepts through the use of analogy and other means to put things into perspective. Along with the additional practice questions given to us, the preparation was sufficient which ultimately gave me the confidence in doing well in Math for the A Level exams! :-)


Jacelyn Tham
Hwa Chong Institute 2017 - 2018

Before attending GrayMatter, I was failing most of the tests in school and was having a hard time understand concepts. However after attending lessons at GrayMatter, I improved a lot. The math teacher at GrayMatter is very passionate in teaching and constantly encourages us to do better and learn from other students. He is also very patient and is always willing to stay back to answer the many questions that I had. GrayMatter provided us with a lot of notes and practice questions which was very helpful. Under the teacher’s continuous guidance, my Math improved tremendously from an E to an A for math and I am truly grateful for it.


Alexandra Low
Catholic Junior College 2017 - 2018

GrayMatter tutors not only push students to achieve excellent results, but also urge us to appreciate the subject. My 3 years in GrayMatter Math was well spent with a tutor who further developed my strengths and taught me how to overcome my weaknesses in the subject through tailored teaching. At the end of the journey, I regained my confidence in Math and developed a deeper interest in Math which further prompted me to try out the job of a Math teacher. I enjoyed GrayMatter lessons despite heavy school work and I am thankful for the support GrayMatter has given me for the past 3 years.

Dunman High School 2017 - 2018

GrayMatter has been extremely instrumental in improving my grades and my grasp of Mathematics. Mr Lim is not only an effective teacher that helped me to elucidate and understand mathematical concepts better, he is also an extremely compelling tutor that conveys his passion for the subject to his students. Under his guidance, I progressed from failing every test in high school to being confident of acing every one of them in JC. My time at GrayMatter has been undeniably a transformative one, and I think this testifies to the quality of education they provide.

GrayMatter has provided me with concise notes and taught me efficient methods to study. I was able to understand topics with a lot more ease as compared to before I enrolled. This greatly helped me and allowed me to excel in the A Level Examinations. Thank you GrayMatter!


Wong Wei Qi
National JC 2016 - 2017

I used to have difficulties understanding the concepts in the various Math topics and applying them to different types of questions. But GrayMatter lessons were really clear in explaining the concepts and provided ample practice questions for all kinds of questions to appropriately prep me for the exams. Ultimately I improved from an S to A for my Math and I’m really thankful for that!


Riley Yap
Hwa Chong Institute (2015 – 2016)

GrayMatter Math provided a lot of practices for me. Due to the high flexibility in lessons according to the needs of the students, it allowed for everyone to get a chance to ask questions they have, and clear any doubts. We get to try practice papers from many different schools as well, allowing us to be exposed to different kinds and levels of questions. This prepared us well for A-levels at the end.


Htet Yamin Aung
National JC (2015 – 2016)

I do recall prior to my first math exam in JC (J1 Midyear), I had close to no grasp of the subject at all. But at just my first Math lesson at GrayMatter, a few days before the exam, the teacher’s patience and the great topical analogies he depicted allowed me to understand the fundamentals so quickly, allowing me a C for that exam in one lesson. His ability to make later lessons interesting and him showing us question analysis methods, rather than repetitive question practising, definitely was a great factor that helped me understand the rigour of JC Math’s learning curve. Oh, and to answer the obvious question, I got an A for my A level Math!
