Singapore’s Tuition Centre That Delivers Consistent Results
Your true countable advantage.
Every tuition centre in Singapore will claim that joining their classes gives you an advantage – but can they quantify and measure it?
At AO Studies, we continuously strive to improve our materials year after year. This year, we had FOUR almost-exact questions tested in O Levels A Math Paper 2, totalling a whopping 21 marks! Plus, because they were so similar, our students were able to save the time they’d otherwise have had to think about how to solve these questions giving them at least 20 mins extra time as compared to their peers!
In essence, we saved our students 20 minutes and added 21 marks to their total score – just like that!
First-Class Tuition Singapore Students Can Count On
Since opening our doors back in 2012, we have helped hundreds of students prepare for exams, delivering consistently outstanding results. Unlike other tuition centres, we don’t simply employ a ‘cookie-cutter’ approach to our learning programmes, but instead work with our students to develop a more personalised approach which ensures the best possible examination outcomes.
Academics aside, Chu Wei imparted so many values into each and every one of us. He taught us that there is so much more to life than grades and exams, that our potential was not determined by our transcripts, that value should be placed not on the end product but on the effort and commitment given to get there.
Chu Wei's lessons are enjoyable as well as there are quizzes and prizes to attain during lessons.
From getting a D7 in Sec 3 ... to finally A2 in the O'levels! None of this could have been possible without the help of Chu Wei.
Chu wei takes his time with each student to go through all their problems as well as providing us with a conducive learning environment where we would be able to focus on our studies.
In his class, Chu Wei will always provide us with a hot towel to let us freshen ourselves up and there are also FREE snacks provided to make sure that we are not hungry!
During the 2019 O level paper, the questions Chu Wei created were almost identical to the O level questions.
Perhaps I started liking math more too HAHA. Chu Wei's tests are insanely difficult and his class work really makes you want to throw your brain away and walk out of class puking, but I promise it's all worth it.
Chu Wei explains concepts and topics clearly and teaches shortcuts and tricks which makes understanding of the problem so much easier.
Chu wei is a tutor that has constantly motivated me to do better in my additional mathematics despite my constant failures.
Chu Wei's classwork is actually better than the standards of most schools, which had given me a leverage in the long run.
Chu Wei always makes sure to explain clearly the underlying concepts and fundamentals behind each topic, using various drawings, analogies and explanations until everyone in the class understands it.
Chu Wei's positive, motivational and amiable personality really pushed us to improve in our studies and made it less of a chore and more of a treat to attend his class. His tuition class was a one-stop shop for academic help, friendship, life advice and food.
Instead, Chu Wei explored my reasoning and patiently, yet skillfully, crafted a method to convince me of why my argument was invalid.This really made me realise that Chu Wei was not teaching for the sake of it, but truly because he wanted us to fully grasp and learn to love Math.
Even though his tutorials looked as though he tortured students for a living, Chu Wei would patiently go through the solution and explain thoroughly such that everyone would understand the method to solve similar questions.
Class is always enjoyable and I never dread going for lesson. I managed to jump 5 grades for additional mathematics and attained distinctions for both my elementary and additional mathematics in O levels.

Before i joined AO Studies, I was failing Physics and was usually scoring a C6 for my Amaths. However, after I joined the Physics and Amaths tuition at AO Studies, both my Physics and Amaths were an A2.
After joining AO studies at the start of Secondary 4, my results for both subjects have improved tremendously, all thanks to Mr Joseph. He had been such a friendly and caring teacher, making sure that you understand all your concepts and clearing all your doubts the best that he can give.
I joined AO Studies towards the end of secondary 3. At that time, my phy and chem were barely passing and I was beginning to lose interest in them. However, the lessons were engaging and I was able to better understand the topics. I was shocked that I managed to improve from C6 in sec 3 to A1 for both my Physics and Chem in the 'O's.
I joined AO studies at middle of Secondary 3 after failing my Chemistry with only 25/100 (F9). After joining the Tuition centre for only 2-3 months, i managed to pass my Chemistry paper for the 1st time.
My physics tuition teacher Joseph have really helped me in more ways than one. I loved his class from the moment I started attending it- and I've learnt so much from him too; I have my A1 in O Level Physics to attest to that.
Ng Yu Fei
Mr Joseph has taught me chem and physics since sec 3 to sec 4. Through the lessons, he uses really visual, interactive, interesting ways to teach his students that really makes chem and physics interesting. It's no longer something read from a book but made into something with life and something i really enjoy learning.
After joining AO studies, my attitude towards Chemistry gradually changed for the better. My results have improved a lot, from low Cs to mostly high Bs and As.
Chu Wei's lessons and tests were really sick and passing none of his tests was actually kinda demoralising especially when alevels is nearing but well it better prepared me for the real shit and i jumped from a D to an A. Yay, thank you Chu Wei!
Erin Seah En Jia
Chu Wei was able to provide me sufficient guidance during the class as he would try to explain till we can understand. Also, he gave us really challenging questions and tutorials for us to be well-prepared for our tests and exams.
Lim Yip Siew
I have been under Chu Wei since Secondary 4, and he is by far the most dedicated teacher I know. His class is always full of laughter and joy, and you'll grow to love math.
Marcus Yeo Xin Hao
From Chu Wei's torturous and monstrous self-made tutorial question, i had alot of trouble doing it, but he took the extra mile and explain preciously to me with the basic understanding of math.
With the help of Mr Joseph, I was able to cope with the subject and eventually gained interest in Chemistry.
Mr Joseph managed to push my results from a C6 to an A1 in O'Levels and I'm very thankful for all his efforts!
Eve Lee Shi
Chu Wei is so much more than just your tuition teacher with a mission to reteach what you should have learnt in school. He’s a whole package deal of teacher, mentor and personal cheerleader hitting you all at once.
Valery Thong Wei Qing
Yet when you feel all hope is lost, Chu Wei will make you feel that you can salvage any situation as long as you put your heart into it.
Marcus Lim Ming Hao
.... but ChuWei never given up. He would spend time explaining to me once or twice till I get the twist of it and would allow students to stay back after class time to ask him any doubts that we have requiring school work.
Elizabeth Teng Jing Yi
the constant encouragement and passion from Chu Wei made it possible for me to get a distinction in Additional Mathematics.
Juliana Ho Shing Chian
Thanks to Chu Wei, my Math grade successfully improved from a U to an A. To someone like me who has never scored anything above a U grade throughout my JC life, this is a life-changing miracle.
Tan Zi Xuan
... with a C5 in my Amaths at ‘O’ Levels, I clearly remembered how I hated calculus and totally given up. With Chu Wei's efforts, I managed to secure an A for my H2 Maths at ‘A’ Levels!
Chu Wei believes that every student is capable of achieving good grades in Maths. He encourages and pushes his students to achieve their goals.
Ng Jing Ting
I have never failed any math paper after the guidance of Chu Wei, when in fact math was my most hated subject since primary school. I even scored distinction in my A Levels!!!
Cheryl Tan Xue Er
Chu Wei is a tutor that really cares about the welfare of his students & never failed to be there when I needed help in my studies & even for any other issues. Honestly, without him, I would be nowhere near to where I am today.
Chan Tin Wing
I am glad that I was able to be taught by Chu Wei during my toughest period of my JC life.
Chu Wei is a very driven teacher and a friend who will encourage and motivate you.
Ng Wan Ting
Despite constantly not doing well in school exams for physics, Joseph didnt give up, and gave extra attention to if i needed help in the questions we were doing in class. He was always willing to stay back after class to attend to my questions if i had any.
Wang Kai Qi
At AO studies, they always believed that you could achieve something more, and for the faith my tutor, Chu Wei, had in me, thank you!
Phillina Ashlea Teo
I join Chu Wei's class in the middle of the year. At that point of time, I was failing Math and hated it. I never looked forward to doing Math. But when I started with AO Studies, I started to take interest in it as I begin to improve slowly.
Chu Wei's scrutiny in ensuring that we are consistent in our studies has been a leading factor that encouraged me to continue to work hard and excel.
Charmaine Lee Hui Ching
Chu Wei will not hesitate to go beyond what is required of him and provide after-tuition-hours assistance to students who require them.
Jann Lee Xin
I even considered dropping amaths, but then Chu Wei stopped me and told me he believed I could pass my maths. Without Chu Wei, I would never had been able to achieve such good grades in such a short time.
Charmaine Lee Wan Ting
The tutors there were extremely dedicated and were willing to take the extra mile for their students.
Tan Jay Len
I find Chu Wei's teaching methods really in depth. Even for the tougher topics like differentiation and integration, I was able to understand it a lot easier than when it was first taught to me by teachers in school.
Ooi Qiu Min
Chu Wei's tuition provides a very personalised experience whereby, he will point out each of our mistakes and ensure that we will not repeat it in our exams or future practices.
Hazel Tan Jia Hui
Chu Wei tailored many lessons that targeted essential questions in each chapter of H2 math...
Eve Lee Shi
Chu Wei is wonderfully engaging and he never hesitates to share stories, opinions and jokes with the class.
Yeo Dong Han
Chu Wei takes great effort in making his math questions fun to do despite being challenging ...
Darren Heng Chen Kai
Chu Wei is also someone who clearly knows the education and examining system well, and accurately spots questions like a magician (including the actual A level math questions)...
Chen Lu Shi Quinn
Chuwei is a tutor with both great knowledge and a big heart...... if you want a tutor who is dedicated, whose teaching is effective or a tutor who can give your child/you maximum exposure, I believe Chuwei is the tutor you are looking for.
The pursuit of education is a lifelong journey that is fraught with occasional setbacks that test the abilities of students to process information, analyse problems, and find solutions. Our educators at our tuition centre in Singapore nurture students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers through the conduct of secondary and JC tuition programmes.
