Why Maths Specialist Tutoring

The Teaching Methodology 

Riding on the teaching methodology of the successful evidence-based SES Maths programme at the DAS, every stage of learning of our One-to-One tutoring ensures that the child links mathematical ideas in a progressive and cumulative way. The programme helps to bridge the gap between your child's ability and the mainstream syllabus by addressing areas they are weaker in. This is done through a C-R-A (Concrete-Representational-Abstract) approach. The methodology applied constantly keeps in touch with the mainstream school Maths syllabus at both MOE and International schools, with the aim of bridging the gap between the student's ability and mainstream syllabus.

Our Philosophy

The Specialist Tutoring Maths Programme is guided by the following principles:

  • Language-based
