Hello, sec 1 maths is very different from primary school and many students who may not have done very well for PSLE all have a good chance in excelling in sec maths if they start with the correct foundation.
In fact, many students find sec 1 math easier than P6 math.
So I would suggest getting a good tutor to help him set the foundation right, or if you want to DIY, you can use the many good available assessment books out there at Popular book shop! Casco's Mathematics Tutor is a very comprehensive and well structured supplementary material.
All the best!

I totally agree with you Lulufied. Having taught sec 1 Maths myself, I have also find teaching Sec 1 Math is easier than P6 Math. My advice to weilingohwl is to continue encouraging your DC in his/her studies, be it maths or other subjects. Parental support is very important, and I wish to emphasise that encouragement =/= stressing him/her. Encouragement could be given in terms of words etc. Focus on the positive.
Also, if you ever need a tutor, you can drop me a PM and I can recommend you one.

My son is currently in Sec 1. He did ok for his midyear, but i think his confidence is going downhill; mainly because he got a B for his PSLE Maths (he was doing pretty well all along in Pri school). Recently, he asked me for tuition in his Maths.
Honestly, i can't be his coach (i can guide him a little) because i have always suck at Maths myself. Would anyone here be able to recommend a good Maths tutor/ tuition centre? I'm residing in Punggol Central. Thanks

When it comes to maths, there are 2 main principles:
1) Understanding why certain equations are true.
2) Practise, practise, practise.
Most schools (teachers) don't explain very well the "whys", they only explain the "how". "How you solve this".. the other way is to practise (rote learning).
Parents, you have a part to supervise him as he does his homework conscientiously. That can at least ensure a B.
