## Our A Math Tuition Structure

Begin with the end in mind, that’s how we approach getting things done. We will break down the learning into 4 phases, the first phase which is the introduction of topics. We explain concepts to students in a simplified manner after which we will provide them practice questions in class and resolve their misconceptions. Homework will be assigned and reviewed in subsequent lesson. Topical test will be given to students to test their understanding of the chapters after which we will review the concepts with them again. Through this systematic approach, we allow students to pace themselves well and understand mathematics better.
