*Background*

Aaron has 8 years of experience coaching and mentoring students (IB to mainstream O-Level) from the Singapore Sports School in Mathematics. He currently also tutors students in JC Physics (H1) and has also coached H3 Physics in the past.

Aaron first developed a strong interest in Mathematics in his secondary school days but instead of specialising in Math, he wanted to choose something that he could apply mathematics to, hence why he graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

Aaron’s primary motivation is to get students to understand, appreciate and like the subjects taught. He believes that if the student does so and can apply the concepts learnt, the As & Bs should follow. He also believes learning is not just about practicing drill questions, but also to understand as it helps one to develop an analytical mind.

When teaching students, he breaks down complex formulae and rather than merely memorising these formulas, students are instead shown how these formulas are derived so that they can develop an appreciation for the formulae.

Aaron always tries to guide his students to question the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ as he believes an inquisitive mindset can go a long way not just in a particular subject, but also in life.
