What We Offer
At eipimath, we offer math private tuition for A-Level, IB, O-Level and IP.
Our math tuition classes in Bukit Timah are for one-to-one, small groups (2-3 persons), and larger tuition classes (4-8 persons).
For smaller class sizes, we will focus on teaching effective learning strategies so students can cope with the school math syllabus. Students in our larger class usually already have a solid foundation, so we offer structured lesson plans, challenging questions, and problem sums to further stretch their knowledge.

Our tuition classes are taught by Mr Luo Xingqun, a math tutor with extensive teaching experience. He has worked with junior college, IB and secondary school students from many schools. Having taught mathematics since 2014, his track record includes helping A-Level JC students improve from ‘E’ to ‘B’ in just 6 lessons
Mr Luo helps students to improve by setting realistic academic goals and building a strong foundation in math. His teaching methods are focused on a comprehensive understanding, instead of mindless rote learning.

The idea of a virtual classroom is certainly not hatched during Covid-19. Records of the earliest online courses trace back to the 1980s – the decade associated with the birth of the Internet, and widespread use of personal computers.
For more than thirty years, online learning has played an ancillary role, filling the gaps in traditional classroom teaching. Pre-recorded videos first began as a partial remedy for absent students, but later evolved into a full-fledged solution for remote learning. The launch of YouTube in 2005, which enabled Khan Academy in 2008, championed the vision of a high-quality online classroom, accessible by anyone, anywhere.
Having occurred in an era of high technological penetration, the abrupt pandemic coerced the world to wholly adopt online lessons, or risk a complete halt to every student’s learning. The unprecedented move meant that even the old guards among educators could not fend off the onslaught of technology. In the blink of an eye, warm and lively classrooms transformed into cold and lifeless Zoom lessons. Although we jestfully exaggerate the new world, it juxtaposes the natural growth of Khan Academy with the anomalous proliferation of Zoom school.
To cushion the blow on students’ performance, school administrators hastily reduced the exam rubrics. In Singapore, SEAB removed common last topics from PSLE, O-Level and A-Level for 2020 and 2021. IB students here benefitted from lower grade boundaries, while their overseas peers could opt for a non-exam route, using internal assessments to predict their grades.
Crucially, the shift to online learning coincided with a discount in grading criteria, contributing to a biased assessment of virtual classrooms. Based on early data, the New York Times (Sep 1, 2022) wrote: ‘The Pandemic Erased Two Decades of Progress in Math and Reading’. Like a canary in the coal mine, it remains to be seen the repercussions when exam rubrics return to pre-pandemic standards.
Summing up the discussion, we quote Sal Khan on the limitations of Khan Academy’s online lectures: "I think they're valuable, but I'd never say they somehow constitute a complete education.“ Here at eipimath, we offer in-person lessons at the doorstep of Beauty World MRT, conveniently located in Upper Bukit Timah. For students who stay too far from us, online lessons are available on request.
