Hi Guan Hui! haha have been away for awhile.. yup.. called and checked. apparently the maths tuition is for weaker students while the olympiad is for better students who wish to compete among national level and had some good results in school already. This centre is pretty reputable in terms of maths olympiad. their principal is very active in hua chong i heard.

im planning to bring her over for a trial lesson.

I feel maths tuition is a little stressful for our little ones.

Maths tuition centres are there to make $ from us. Unless you want your kids to be mathematicians.... I have friends who did maths in unis, they become teachers.

Too mathematical may be affecting EQ. ie. too calculative and dare not take risk.

Send them for creative courses.
