Singapore’s Stellar JC H1 and H2 Maths Tuition Programme
The award-winning JC maths tuition programme at AO Studies Singapore, taught by maths specialist Mr Lim Chu Wei, is a tested and proven programme which has seen many students achieving a distinction for A Level H1 and H2 maths, at both JC1 and JC2 level. We have specially designed the tuition programme to help students achieve results while reducing their revision hours by at least 30%.
Lessons in school are conducted in large lectures, and students often find difficulty in catching up with the pace of these lectures and are too shy to ask questions. Our JC maths tuition programme aims to enable all of our students to have a complete and thorough understanding of all the key topical concepts and equip them with the strategies that allow them to tackle common questions efficiently and effectively. On top of that, we help to develop our students in their thought processes towards tackling higher-order knowledge and real-world application questions with ease.
The Best H2 Maths Tuition for A Level and More
When you choose AO Studies, you can feel confident knowing that our O and A Level maths tuition programme has been developed with top-tier results in mind. As providers of JC maths tuition in Singapore covering O and A Level H1 and H2 maths, we know how important examination results are and as such, will strive to deliver the best H1 and H2 maths tuition to our students so that they can achieve nothing but exemplary scores.
Read some testimonials from past students below.
Chu Wei constantly goes out of his way to offer help to us, asking us to bring our exam papers for review to further understand where our greatest weakness in math lies and the common errors we repeat in the exams.
Chu Wei built my confidence from ground up in the subject by giving me the hardest questions from each topic to do.
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 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!
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 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!

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.

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.
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.

How are the lessons conducted
Topical Reteaching and Tutorials
In topical reteaching, the key topical concepts are reintroduced, highlighting the key strategies used to solve common question types. Students will then practise examples of the different question types and through the guidance of our tutor, students will learn about the common pitfalls and mistakes that they tend to make. Each student is closely monitored while they complete the tutorial to identify critical mistakes and address them early on.
Overall Revision Drills
In overall revision drills, students will be given revision worksheets and notes that cover a span of interlinked topics. Each of these revision worksheets and notes are specially-designed to fish out common misconceptions and mistakes that students usually make. Higher-order thinking questions are also used in these worksheets and notes to challenge students and train them on the correct approach towards tackling difficult questions.
Concept-Reinforcement and Topical-Revision
In concept-reinforcement and topical-revision, students are exposed to a greater breadth of questions for each topic to promote greater familiarity with the question variations. These lessons are tailored specifically for combined-science students to help them on questions that are specific to their syllabus.
H2 NEW A Level H2 Math Syllabus
Key trends in recent examinations
Higher-Order Knowledge Application
Relating Mathematics in Real-World Scenarios
Drill and Practice Method
The new 2017 H2 Maths syllabus takes a shift towards more higher-order knowledge application and increases the emphasis on relating mathematics in real-world scenarios. At least 2 real-world application questions (15 marks each), including those from science and engineering in both Paper 1 and 2 (12 marks each), will be included in the A Level papers.
As a result, the usual drill and practice methods will no longer be sufficient to help them score a distinction. In fact, a “less is more” logic applies. When a Junior College student practises too much, they may end up “programming” themselves to answer questions in a specific manner. Therefore, when they are tested on real-world application questions, often they find themselves unable to apply what they have learnt to solve the questions.
At our centre, we will prepare the students to tackle these questions. Our tutorials, which are set by our tutor, will fully equip our students with the skills and knowledge to answer such questions.
On top of tackling real-world application questions, AO Studies specialises in preparing students for the usual problematic topics, i.e. Permutation and Combination (P&C). In recent years, the weightage of these topics is increasing and students are failing to score a distinction because they are unable to cope with these questions. In our lessons, students will be guided in their train of thought in order to develop the best approach to tackle these difficult topics.
What do we do in a typical class over the term
30 hours of full comprehensive topical revision (covers every single topic and variant of questions) will be conducted followed by a full 3-hour paper 1 and 3-hour paper 2 mock exam before the A Level maths examinations. This provides students with a much-needed review of each and every topic to be tested during the exams. This is a complete tuition programme that aims to push each and every student to achieve a distinction in the A-Level exams.
Timed Test/Examination Practices
Time practices and topical tests will be conducted from time to time in our JC Maths tuition programme. This will prepare our students for regular class tests, mid-term and end-of-year examinations in Singapore, helping them in their time-management skills and putting them in the right mindset for the papers. The practices and tests will also help the students identify areas that they have yet to fully grasp and to work on or clarify those areas.
Assignments & Homework
Specially-designed tutorials and past-year prelim papers from the top JCs are often given as homework to give students the necessary practice. Most importantly, each one of these homework assignments is carefully marked and returned to the students, where their mistakes are highlighted for students to improve on.
Examinations Skills & Strategies
Dealing with a 3-hour paper can be daunting. Students are taught proper strategies to tackle the H1 and H2 Maths A Level examination papers. This includes:
- Setting aside the appropriate amount of time to complete the paper on the first attempt;
- Questions to focus on (based on topics & how the questions are set) to get the correct answers;
- Setting aside time to check for mistakes;
- Employing answering strategies and presentation methods to maximise the marks obtained.
These skills are engineered to the highest level of precision and they have been tried and tested by many generations of students.
Topical reteaching lessons will re-emphasise on the key topical concepts in each chapter, the common question types and the strategies to solve each of these question types.
Class practices are used frequently after each topical reteaching in order to assess a student’s understanding. Students who struggle with the class practices are given more individual help while others who have already fully grasped the concepts are given more challenging work to extend their knowledge on the topics.

What our students say about our JC maths tuition programme
Chuwei is not just a tutor that guides our studies, but he is also a friend that cares and concern about our future. Though I was only under his guidance for a few months, but he helped me to achieve my personal best in H2 Mathematics. Whats more was that he also give us tips in other areas that is beyond his responsibility. He was happy (or even happier than us) for all of us that made it to our dream course in university. If anyone needs help in the academic (and maybe life) he is definitely someone to look for. I am glad that I was able to be taught by him during my toughest period of my JC life. Thank you so much Chuwei!

AO Studies is a place with the most dedicated teachers. My awesome math tutor, Chu Wei just doesnt seem to leave his whatsapp conversations with us, endlessly solving our math questions even if it meant sacrificing his nights and midnights. Moreover, Chu Wei convicts to ensure his students would not leave lessons without learning anything, hence we see ourselves staying back completing his assignments most of the time.
Tuition can sometimes be a dreadful event, but strangely I love solving Chu Wei’s monstrous tutorial questions! For this meant i have already mastered my concepts and not be afraid of taking up any school exams and finally the “A” Levels. True enough, I am proud to say 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!!!
There are many more fun-loving moments during lessons which made me loved attending tuition classes compared to the dull lessons in school.
Such fantastic environment is hard to come by, I didn’t regret my choice.

Whether you’re the kind of ‘a relatively doing well’ but can never score an ‘A’ student or a ‘weak in math’ student like I was, please take some time to read the long but honest review:
Chuwei is a tutor with both great knowledge and a big heart. As a teacher, he never fails to clear our doubts and explain basic mathematical concepts which are crucial in cultivating problem solving skills. He goes the extra mile to answer our questions out of class and even late nights. As an Arts student who has always struggled with math, Chuwei has consistently guided me since J1 and allow me to gain confidence.
His depth of knowledge of the subject and the syllabus has enabled him to quickly identify his students’ weaknesses and advise each of us individually on how we can improve. From failing math in the past, I’ve finally did well in A levels.
Honestly, it was never a smooth journey for me when it came to this daunting subject , and there are times where I face setbacks in examinations. Nonetheless, because of Chuwei, someone who believes in the best in every student, he gave me the encouragement I needed each time and allowed me to push through until the end. He has been more than just a tutor to all of us.
To parents or students reading, if you want a tutor who is dedicated, whose teaching is effective or a tutor who can give ur child maximum exposure (something all students really need in A level H2 mathematics unlike O levels), I believe Chuwei is the tutor you are looking for.
To students, no matter what tutor you’re going to eventually, please remember that math really requires you to PRACTISE and don’t be complacent. There are many ‘A’ students who eventually scored a ‘B’ just because they got lazy or are over confident. There are also those who used to fail but got an ‘A’ because they tried hard enough.
