Mr Oliver Ching
Hello! This is Oliver Ching here. I have been coaching students in mathematics from Secondary to JC mathematics for the last 30 years! Time really flies when you don’t think of it as a job but more as a desire to help every student that I have the privilege to coach.
My personal objective is to help every student achieve “academic excellence though my expert guidance and their personal diligence”. The students I have coached who aced their subjects are always in partnership with me. I guess the fact that I am very friendly and easy to talk to helps too!
I have always lived mathematics as a professional. I don’t only see it as a subject. You can probably tell from my background how I feel. I also have extensive experience in mathematical-related disciplines like computational mathematics, data analytics and coding.
Do feel free to reach out to me through Connect@Maths and I would be most happy to see what I can do for you or your child.

My Mathematics Superpower
I have coached thousands of students (at least) over the last 30 years so its going to be obvious I know the “in” and “out” of every thing that the student will encounter in their school and institutions. Though my extensive and proven material and notes, I make sure that the students are able to practice them to a high level and with such confidence that they can easily tackle them in the heat of the examination. I even had students come back after ‘A’ levels to consult me for help in their university math subject!
My Proven Methods & Techniques
These are just some of the approaches that I will use:
- I believe highly in Student-centered Coaching for maximum impact and lasting results.
- Help students access prior knowledge. Many times this has allowed them to make connections themselves thereby achieving deeper learning and retention.
- Questioning is also one of the big strategies that helps my students to connect the dots between what they know and are looking to understand.
- Checking that the students understand with great clarity is also important. What you think you know is not the same as what you can actually do – and at a certain speed.
