How to Think
Children Should be taught How to Think Not What to Think
I like to challenge my students to think or relate to similar questions or logic when the students ask me to solve certain questions. I realise some children did not realise they give up easily when faced with some “seemingly difficult” problems.
Most of the time, I do not need to tell them the solution. Just prompt them a few questions and they can solve it themselves!! YEA!!
Involve the student
You cannot teach a child to swim when both of you are not in the water.
Both teacher and the students need to get into the pool.
A child learns best when they feel safe to explore, to ask questions and to fail.
Most of the children no longer “brand” Mathematics as a boring subject after they understand certain concepts and do well in the Maths exams.

About Mrs Hannah Chew
I did not come from top schools but thank God, I managed a lean L1R4 score of 7 in my “O” levels and achieved straight distinctions for my “A” levels.
I represented my JC & participated in the Mathematical Olympaid. My highest "paper" is a Masters of Science (NTU)
I can be very firm at times as i feel the need to correct children and not only be their friend. I thank God and pray that God will bless me with the wisdom and place me at the right moment so that my words of correction carry weight to these precious young ones.

Hannahtuition Agency has take off successfully (beyond my expectations). However, due to manpower issues and the fact that I have 2 young ones ( 1 toddler and 1 baby) to cared for, I have decided to stop the tuition agency for this season. I might resume when my kids are older. :)

My thoughts or My assignments for my beloved students
Some notes on Cation testing. Some students have problem remember these coloured precipitates so i came up with some funny statements for students to remember these chemistry facts easier. There are 3 coloured precipitates you have to know. Cu²+,Fe²+,Fe³+. I have come up with a funny statement below to remember the colours associated with the[…]
There are some common questions on determining weak and strong acids. Yet usually cant find this in textbooks. This is because this type of question spans across a few chapters. Most students have no issues understanding that the strength of the acid is indicated by their pH values. But often they miss out that actually[…]
I want to thank all parents for engaging hannahtuition agency to help source for a home tutor. I am ,infact, overwhelmed by the numerous requests. Most of you know me or are referred to by parents who know me. Word of mouth is indeed the most powerful marketing tool. 😃 Because of the surge in[…]
Second half of 2016 had been a very busy period for me. I gave birth to my lovely girl in june and took 3 months of maternity leave. I managed to find replacement teacher for most of my students. Some of them prefered to wait for me to resume lessons in oct. Hence for the[…]

This post, I am going to write about my journey past few months finding home tutors for parents. It has been a roller-coaster ride actually. I met a lot of good parents. Really thank God for favour. But I also met very rude ones. Some will not reply your messages, even I ask for confirmation and left[…]
Hi, I finally uploaded an youtube video to show how to solve Sec 2 inversely proportional Maths question. Usually, the k constant is shown so it is relatively easy to calculate the change in one variable when the other variable change. However, there are some questions where the k constant is not made known. Some[…]
In this post, I will like to share my thoughts on looking for MOE school teachers as tuition teachers. As I receive more requests to find home tutors, I realise most of the parents are looking for MOE teachers or full-time tutors. I personally agree that these two groups of tutors will be the most experienced[…]
One of my Sec 4 girl send me these proving trigo identities questions few days ago. I am so sorry I have been very busy with tutors referrals and CNY preparation that I can only reply today. Decided to post the solutions up on the blog since I have a little time this afternoon[…]
