We have been monitoring the logins of students using This year we took notice of a Math Arena student logging in in the most. She was not the strongest and was behind her fellow classmate. We were amazed when we found out she scored full marks for 2016 SA1 and topped her school for math. Like Shruti (most frequent logins afor 2015), her improvement was tremendous.

I am a student from Math Arena and I feel the math arena is just the right place when you are unsure of a solution or when you do not how to answer a question. I especially like the new website that the tuition has created, Previously I was using a website called,”learnology” which is a website which provided me useful solutions. However I felt that the explanations in (now  were better. This is one of the reasons why matharena is my favorite tuition centre! I strongly encourage the use of this website as your A Star will come flying.

PSLE — The Last Stretch

1 Aug

Last year, we started Math Arena in the middle of the year.  A few anxious parents brought their children to Math Arena, that is a bit of leap of faith … with us being so new and PSLE is the BIG exam. The parents were anxious because the children used to score well previously but suddenly there was a steep drop in scores as they moved up to P5 & 6 –not uncommon to hear that. This is worrying because the children  did well before.

Though we had only a short time to work together, the children did very well in their preliminary tests, our expectation became high and so did our anxiety. In the end we were happy and had a party.

This year we have students who started with us earlier, but we all need to keep focus — students, parents and us teachers to get the desired results.
