PSLE Math Headstart Program
Start Your PSLE Preparation Early, to Perform Better with Less Stress
"PSLE Preparation is a Marathon, Not a Sprint"
Hi Parent, we are really glad that you decide to visit.
Just like you, we believe in the magic of starting early (More time -> Less Stress -> Better Performance)
But then again, there isn't that much time.
The PSLE is 11 months away, and with 4 subjects to study for, that equates to less than 3 months for each subject.
On top of that, there are new topics in P6 that are more challenging that those in P5. (And they have not been taught yet!)
Thus, we spent the last 3 months working the weekends, to put together a Headstart Program that can help your child "buy time" and start their PSLE year ahead of their peers.
But what is going to make these headstart classes really beneficial, is that we have extracted the most essential concepts, handpicked questions of different styles and created worked solutions using Heuristics that can be applied easily.
So, if you would like to give your child a running headstart..
If you would like to reduce their stress levels in the coming months..
If you would like to inject them with a confidence boost for Math...
Scroll down and read on.
What Makes PSLE Math so Challenging?
3 Reasons Why Your Child Needs that Extra Help
#1: Cramping of Content
It's obvious that there is a severe lack of time. The PSLE exam happens in late September / Early October, which means schools rush to cover the P6 syllabus while squeezing out time for Revision and Practice.
This not only causes stress, but also tend to have an adverse effect on learning.
#2: Insufficient Focus on Problem Solving
Schools have to prioritize teaching of new content, which sacrifices time to work on problem solving methods.
This is why most students do well in Paper 1, but struggle with Paper 2 and long form word problems.
#3: Lack of Exposure to Non-routine Questions
The coin question that appeared in the PSLE 2021 Math paper, is an example of a "non-routine question".
Adequate exposure to different question styles, prepare your child to take on the "odd" questions that surface year after year.

Starting Ahead to Stay Ahead
Now that you know the challenges... What's the Solution?
Yes, it's crucial that your child learns ahead to familiarize with the topics of Term 1 and 2.
These classes will..
1) Direct their focus to the MOST important concepts, rules and formulas.
2) Provide exposure to a variety of question types so your child knows what to expect in the coming year.
3) Teach them the right problem solving techniques, making use of Heuristics such as Model Drawing, to tackle word problems in a systematic manner.
Simply put, we provide a map with clear directions, so your child NEVER feels confused or lost when they start on their PSLE Journey in 2022.
These headstart classes will equip your child with strong conceptual knowledge, and the use of heuristics to solve math problems related to each topic.
Start strong on the get-go, and easily maintain that lead, just by correcting minor mistakes along the way.

Accelerate Your Child's Preparation
with our Systematic 'Step-by-Step' Approach to PSLE Math Problems
1. When tackling any question, the first step is to identify what the question is asking for. We will teach your child to recognize key words and extract information crucial to the question
2. By spotting the relevant concepts, students can apply the correct formula(s) and use the associated techniques taught in class. This provides the foundation to solve the question quickly.
3. Based on the context and requirements, your child will apply the appropriate "Problem Solving Techniques" to answer the question.
4. Your child will learn simple ways to gauge whether their answer is 'reasonable'. Using shortcuts, they can verify their answers swiftly to prevent careless mistakes.
Solve Challenging Math Problems
Using Effective Techniques
In each class, we have prepared short form questions and word problems of progressive difficulty.
Practice is important, but it's even more important be practice on the right questions.
Through a variety of question styles, we will introduce Math Heuristics and Problem Solving Methods in a step-by-step approach. Students will also be given similar questions to ensure that they have mastered the techniques.
Worked Solutions are also provided for revision after class.
These techniques will remain applicable all the way, up till the PSLE exams.
For Every Class
Includes Worked Solutions & Summary Sheet to revise Concepts and Problem Solving Techniques Taught in Class
Detailed Notes and Questions for
Step-by-Step Worked Solutions for Challenging Problem Sums
And a Summary Sheet of the Most Important Rules & Formulas
We Make Sure You have the Resource Advantage to Complement the Techniques Learnt in Class
To truly attain mastery, practice and revision are required beyond class.
This is why we have prepared functional notes that are crafted to be useful when read on its own. From detailed topical notes to completed worked solutions, your child will be equipped with a library of resources for self-directed revision.
