Let Your Child Enjoy And Excel In Math

S.A.M Singapore Math program helps children develop math mastery, thinking and problem-solving skills through interest and understanding instead of rote memorization and drilling, with an emphasis on conceptual learning and explicit teaching of problem-solving heuristics and process.

S.A.M Two-Pillared Approach

S.A.M Singapore Math program uses the two-pillared approach of classroom engagement and worksheet reinforcement with coaching, hands-on activities, guided and independent practice. An individualized learning plan is prescribed to suit each child’s level and pace, because no two children learn alike, with a low teacher to student ratio.

Classroom Engagement

Emphasizing understanding before procedures, the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach is used to introduce new math concepts in an engaging and meaningful way. In addition, the Coaching approach is used to help children explore, discover and build confidence towards math. This is done in an intentionally small class setting of 5-6 children per trainer, where each child work on their own prescribed learning tasks.

Worksheet Reinforcement

Created by a team of former school teachers and textbook publishers, S.A.M worksheets’ tasks are comprehensive, varied and incrementally advanced, so that learning is kept challenging yet achievable, to keep children motivated. Through guided and independent practice, children develop mastery in math, problem-solving and thinking skills, self-discipline and good study habits.

What Parents Say

S.A.M provides a conducive environment where Tyler can maximize his potential in math. S.A.M trainers keep Tyler well engaged which simulates his strong interest in math and increases his desire to learn more. He reacts with enthusiasm when he is challenged and he is motivated to learn a new topic. At S.A.M, both his strengths and weaknesses are supported, allowing him to excel in math at his own pace. We appreciate and commend S.A.M!

Grace did not enjoy math, struggled with math thinking and lacked confidence. At S.A.M, the learning plan was tailored for her, the worksheets are good and the trainers are patient. S.A.M has helped Grace build up her math abilities and confidence. She has moved from middle band to top band at school and is excelling in math. S.A.M has shown her different ways to think about math problems and she is more positive in her approach to learning.

Beverly was good in math in grade 1 but grade 2 was a steep learning curve for her because of multiple-step word problems especially model drawings. S.A.M trainers taught her how to analyze word problems systematically, draw the correct models or use other methods to accurately solve word problems. She got perfect scores for her recent math tests and she is in love with math all over again!

Mrs Kelly
Mother of Beverly (8 years old)

Trey used to lose focus easily and was scared of word problems. He was not doing well in math so I sent him to S.A.M hoping to help him improve. S.A.M trainers were patient with him and helped him build a good math foundation. It exceeded my initial expectation – his test scores went from 50+ in grade 3 to 80+ in grade 4! More importantly, he has become confident in math. S.A.M is the best decision I’ve made this year!

Mrs Winnie
Mother of Trey (11 years old)

Morgan was already quite proficient in math and she got even better at S.A.M. She learnt different ways to solve word problems and her speed, accuracy and confidence in math have improved tremendously. S.A.M trainers are constantly encouraging her. Also, S.A.M worksheets are very well designed and she looks forward to completing them. I am so happy to see Morgan excited to go to S.A.M every week!

Jaydon was struggling with math in grade 4 and was reluctant to do math problems. S.A.M trainers take the time to help him understand and fully grasp each topic before getting him to attempt questions in increasing levels of difficulty. The dedication and passion of S.A.M trainers are unparalleled. My child has developed confidence and passion for math. It’s now his favourite subject!

Mother of Jaydon (11 years old)

Charlaine enjoys the fun lessons at S.A.M and their heuristics lessons have honed her thinking skills. She can analyze and solve word problems and present her answers in a concise manner. I am very impressed that my grade 2 child can solve tricky math questions without the need to memorize anything. The ability to understand how math works is very valuable and S.A.M has helped her to develop this skill.
