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.


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!

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!

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.

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!

When I entered Year 5 in January 2014, Math was a perpetual stumbling block for me academically. I failed my very first lecture test and was consequently panicking. However, I felt that the weekly lessons at GrayMatter were a great boon, not only owing to the fact that I had an excellent avenue for constant practice, but also because the teacher always gave us difficult and tricky questions to tackle, honing our accuracy as well as precision. In addition, the teacher is very patient and understanding, constantly guiding and shaping our grasp on the subject. The personalised feedback and guidance given allowed me to pinpoint my flaws and areas of weakness, thus enabling me to become a more concise and focused student.

When I first started tuition classes with GrayMatter, I hadn’t passed any of my Math exams in my first year in RJC. However, with the teacher’s patience and dedication, I got to improve my understanding of Math. The method of teaching forces us to think and stretch ourselves so that we can understand concepts and adapt to different questions. Lessons at GrayMatter were focused and concise, allowing me to improve my grades tremendously in mere months.

I used to be the typical Math dunce who always banked on miracles that never came. After I enrolled in GrayMatter, it became clear to me that miracles are concocted by hard work, resilience and the right teacher.
The Math teacher’s experienced and versatile teaching methods really helped me to grasp concepts wholly and clear my doubts efficiently. His ability to connect with students of varying levels was extremely helpful in aiding our understanding of the subject, not forgetting the useful A-Level Exam tips that he regularly ingrains in us. I'm very grateful for his tireless teaching and endless faith in his students and also for the friendly GrayMatter staff who never fails to bring a smile to my face at the end of a long day.

When I first joined GrayMatter, I was failing every single Math test and basically could not keep up with the content taught at school. But the teacher at GrayMatter was always so patient, and would stay behind even after lessons to help me go through questions and concepts I was unsure of. A big part of my results definitely goes to him for his guidance and help. Thank you so much!
