Hi Mr Koh,
I came across your website while seeking someone to coach my daughter in H2 Maths. She is currently studying at TJC and will be taking her A Levels at the end of this year. At the present moment she has someone helping her with the subject but thus far she has failed in most of her tests and exams (since JC1). Quite frankly we are at a loss, because my daughter has been working very hard all this while, yet she isn't witnesing any significant improvement in her grades, which is rather discouraging. Will it be too late for her to catch up? Please do also advise with regards to your tuition fee rates, thanks.
Thank you for your inquiry. Your daughter is studying in a top tier junior college, understandably it will be a rollercoaster ride for her. Admittedly it may be demoralising to consistently experience setbacks in attempting to do well for the subject, however she mustn't lose sight of the ultimate goal which is to score decently in the upcoming A Levels. Her inability to achieve better grades at the present moment could be attributed to a variety of factors - poor math foundation, chronic carelessness, nerves during actual test sittings among others.
That being said, there is certainly time left to salvage the currrent situation, then again I do need to personally review her work process to better discern the underlying troubles. To a certain extent, one might take comfort (not too much though) in the fact that each year numerous JC students have to endure this disheartening phase of their learning journey no thanks to schools who somehow feel inclined to set far higher standards internally as compared to that of the actual A Levels.
I presently charge $ X /hr, do have a proper discussion with your daughter and keep me updated accordingly. Thanks and god bless.
