1) What is Axiom Education’s teaching methodology?
We strive to ensure that our lessons are always effective, engaging and relevant so that you always make the most of your time with us each lesson.
We identify what is important, and what isn’t. All of that content is then re-organised and broken down in a manner that enables efficient and effective learning.
Because learning the theory alone doesn’t cut it, here at Axiom Education, we put strong emphasis on the application of learnt concepts to questions that truly test your foundational understanding.
There are 3 parts to every lesson conducted at Axiom Education:
Students will first be introduced to the different concepts required for each topic.
They will learn how each concept is applied to questions.
3) Problem solving
Once students are familiar with the topic, they will be exposed to a variety of questions specifically identified and prepared by us and based on what will be tested in both their school and national examinations.
2) How does Axiom Education’s teaching suit me?
We are well acquainted with both the IP/IB and O/A level syllabus. We have taught students from a variety of schools (many of which are top performing schools) and are very familiar with the standards expected of these schools.
The team at Axiom Education have spent years developing our materials to ensure that you learn everything you need to know to do well in your examinations. Each lesson is carefully planned and structured to meet the standards required of you by your school and at an international level in your examinations.
Do you often find yourself worrying about whether something falls within the syllabus or will be important for the examinations? Not to worry - having analysed the examination questions over the years, we are able to guide you on what will be tested. We do the heavy lifting so that you can achieve your desired results.
3) Are there classes for the Integrated Program or International Baccalaureate Diploma Program?
Yes. This is one of our specialities which is why we get many students from schools that offer these programs, such as ACSI, SCGS, MGS and SJI. These classes are specially structured to cater students who are in the Integrated Program or International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
4) I am taking an examination that is not offered in the Singapore education system. Do you offer preparation classes for this?
Yes, we do. We have many foreign students (China, UK Etc) taking examinations such as Edexcel, SATS, BMAT, etc.) who attend classes with us to prepare for these examinations. Such classes are provided on a one-to-one basis.
5) What is the size of each class?
Generally, 3-10 students per class.
6) Should I choose group tuition or 1-1 home tuition?
An effective tutor will always get their message across to each student, no matter the class size; and that is what we have achieved at Axiom Education. So, perhaps the more important question is this: why should I choose Axiom Education over all other tuition? For this, please refer to FAQ 1 and 2.
That said, there is a lot more to be gained from attending group tuition. We find that our students are more engaged in a group setting - they tend to feed of each other’s energy and ask more questions, and they definitely enjoy a little bit of challenge among themselves in getting the right answers in the shortest amount of time. Students can also enjoy cost savings as the fees are divided among the students, without any compromise on the quality of the lesson.
7) What if I am unable to attend class?
Kindly note that we have a strict cancellation policy.
Should you need to reschedule a lesson, please let us know at least 72 hours in advance.
This is only fair to the teacher and other students who could have been refused a spot in the class because it has reached maximum capacity.
8) Do you offer a complimentary trial class?
No. However, we understand that a new student may want to see if the tutor and our teaching style is a good fit for them. Therefore, new students can choose to pay just for one lesson without any obligation to continue further classes. Should the student decide to continue with us for further classes, fees are payable in advance for each month.
9) Where are you located?
We are conveniently located at Balmoral Plaza, which is a short 5 minutes’ walk from Newton MRT Station.
