**Why my son or girl can do well in his or her elementary Maths (Emaths) but cannot do well in Additional Mathematics (A-Maths) exams? **

Many of the parents signed up with my Additional Mathematics tuition class when the students failed their Amaths in Secondary 3 EOY exams. Surprisingly some of the students actually are doing not bad in E-maths.

Usually at Jimmy Tuition, I always make sure that all students have clear understanding for all the basic concepts and from there we will take step-by-step approach to tackle the more challenging questions with my guidance.

Along the way I will encourage students to dare to try and not to be afraid of making mistakes which will help them gain confidence in Mathematics.

Most of the students cannot do well in Additional Mathematics is because they don’t have proper presentation skills. They either like to skip the steps or do mental calculations very often. Instead at Jimmy Tuition class, I always remind my students to take step-by-step approach and must use calculator whenever needed so as to minimise the careless mistakes.

**Do I need to buy many other Additional Mathematics Assessment books for practice in your Amaths tuition class? **

No. I don’t require my students to purchase any other Additional Mathematics Assessment Books. In my Amaths tuition class, I will make sure students fully understand the important concepts and get them to practice the exam-style questions. We should focus on the Additional Mathematics textbook which are well-designed and spend time and efforts in ten years series (TYS).
