## Teaching Methodology

How are the lessons conducted

### Rigorous Topical Drill and Practice

Mathematics is a subject where rigorous drill and practice is unavoidable. In this aspect, Chu Wei is a master at motivating and pushing his students to strive for excellence. “Good is not good enough. You need to excel in it!” is his usual catchphrase. His drill and practice sessions ensures that his students have adequate practice of the different question types so that they will be able to reproduce the same results in the exams.

### Challenging Tutorials

Chu Wei takes pride in specially designing his tutorials to challenge and stretch his students. On top of covering the basic topical concepts, he specially designs challenging questions that incorporates many different chapters at the same time. Students are pushed to their limits and he guides them to use their own knowledge to tackle and solve these questions.

### A Strict But Caring Environment

In his math tuition classes, a lot of work is done and learning is efficient and effective. In spite of this, he maintains a caring and supportive environment where he celebrates small milestones that his students achieve. Their first A, the first time they pass a test, their birthdays; these are all examples of Chu Wei will taking the time to acknowledge the students for their small accomplishments and encourage them. These helps his students immensely in their motivation and their drive to push for greater heights.
