PRINCIPAL
Mr Teo Wee Toon

Why the name “Math Mavens”? The word “Mavens” is defined as “trusted experts in a particular field, who seek to pass knowledge on to others”. The word comes from Hebrew — it means one who understands, based on an accumulation of knowledge.

I believe that you can plan all you want in life, but life will never play along with all your plans. Growing up, I had never dreamed of a job as a teacher, but it has become a career that I have come to deeply love – it is a joy and privilege to witness the growth of so many young minds. My school career brought me in touch with students with different learning paces, abilities and backgrounds, and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with all my students.

Mathematics is my favourite subject. As a student, I was never tired of mathematics homework, and as a teacher, it’s incredibly fun to set questions that may seem challenging, but can be unlocked with a simple ‘Aha!’ solution.

I hope to pass on my love and knowledge of mathematics to my students, and help them become confident and passionate mathematicians ­— someone who can see mathematics learning beyond worksheets and apply it to the real world.

I believe that teachers should teach from the heart, not from the book. Apart from imparting knowledge, I try my best to build rapport and earn respect from my students. Understanding that each child have different learning styles, I also spend personal time thinking of ways to create meaningful and engaging learning experiences. Nothing else gives more joy than to witness students having ‘Aha!’ moments when they grasp a concept and are ready to go to the next level!

Together, in firm partnership with parents, the students under my tutelage can grow to be confident learners of mathematics!

SENIOR TEACHER
Ms Mok Pei Terk

I joined the teaching profession as I enjoy learning new things and sharing knowledge with others. Teaching allows me to create a ripple effect of learning. Joining Math Mavens gives me the opportunity to apply what I have learnt and make it useful for others. During discussions with children, they may experience ‘Aha!’ moments and be motivated to go further in their learning.

I believe that every child can reach and go beyond his potential when he sets his mind and puts in the effort. A student with a positive attitude who enjoys learning will go further than others.

I will work towards bringing joy to their learning journey and guiding them to greater heights in math.

SENIOR TEACHER
Mrs Nancy Lum Siew Hong

I am honoured to join my colleagues at Math Mavens. After 24 years as an MOE teacher, I have decided to embark on a new chapter in my journey as an educator. My love for teaching and interacting with children is unwavering, and it gives me joy when my students overcome difficulties in mathematics.

The word ‘educate’ comes from the Latin word ‘educere’, meaning ‘to lead out’ — my purpose as a teacher. I believe that all my students have an innate love for learning and the potential to succeed; my role is to support them in bringing out these qualities.

It gives me satisfaction when students who dislike mathematics grow to enjoy it. The rigour needed in math can be a struggle, but I assure my students that they can overcome this. I work with parents closely to coach their children into confident students who enjoy math.

More than numbers, models, algebra, and geometry, Mathematics is about understanding the world around us. If my students can bring that awareness into their lives, they will embrace life with rationale, creativity, and perception. I cannot wait to welcome and work with students and parents at Math Mavens.
