Are you looking you a Teacher for Maths difficulties in Singapore?
Have you ever had thoughts such as ‘my child should be able to do this!’ and ‘why is he not improving even with tuition classes?’ and you then go on to scour the internet with searches such as ‘teacher for math difficulties in Singapore’.
Well, you are not alone!
These are the concerns of many parents in Singapore where perceptions of academic excellence heavily rely on math abilities.
Whether your child is neurotypical or neurodivergent, math difficulties are pervasive in our current society.
For average and above-average students, tuition (or a teacher for maths difficulties) helps to boost their scores. This is because the child already has a good foundation and understanding of the concepts, and abilities to manipulate these concepts at will to propel forward. Tuition provides exposure to a wide range of different types of questions, combinations of topics, and neat tricks to do the sums in a more efficient way.
The culture of tuition in Singapore is good in this sense, however, for the children who are struggling to even grasp the basic concepts and habits in math, sending them for tuition (or finding a teacher for math difficulties) might be doing a disservice to them.
Imagine not being able to read any sort of Chinese characters and suddenly you are in a class about how to write Mandarin jokes! This tactic leaves the children baffled and confused about math, later contributing to increased anxiety and lowered self-esteem when attempting math problems.
