Neuromath Tuition Centre - Discussion

Postby sachiko » Wed Nov 18, 2009 5:12 pm

Hi

Does anyone enrol his/her children in Neuromath (used to call Norman Tien) tuition program in Goldhill Plaza? I currently have a one-to-one tuitor for my child but no improvement so far this year. Thought of putting her there to try out.

Hope anyone can give me some advice. Thank you

I also sent my son to Norman Tien Group + individual lessons...
After spending $$$$ for last 5 months, my son did not show much improvement from SA2 result.
But no doubts, the teachers are good and my son enjoys the lessons.

The teacher (from Norman Tien) said that the poor result was partly due to the unexpected challenging questions from his school ( Primary 5)
(ref to my post on average marks 40/100 maths forum)

I'm looking for other MATH tuition centre - example>Dr Peh Associate...
Are your kid in P5 too? staying in EAST

Actually why didnt you find a home tutor who can tailor to yr son's need? These tuition centres are not cheap too.

My son is from neighbourhood school in Tampines... not even top 30 schools.

But just don't know why the MATHS paper2 was so tough and his form teacher told me that the school set PSLE standard for this SA2.

Then I asked the teacher : "Why set PSLE standard whereby the P5 kids are still not at that "mark" and almost everyone failed with a mean mark of 40 ?"
:stupid:

My girl will be P5 next year. I heard Norman Tien use some strategic method to tackle problems. So I thought to try it out.

Since your school set the Maths std that is so high (wah...probably half the school failed with mean of 40/100)..then you can't really gauge whether Norman Tien is producing results or not. The school is setting a paper that is beyond the normal ability of the child! A better analysis will be how far ahead or behind the sch average compared to before his tuition.

Is your son from Gongshang Pri where the mean score is 44 after everyone add 5 more marks. Some of my students get above 70 for SA2 Maths in GSPS.
