What our parents say
My 1st-grader took his first after-school Singapore Math enrichment class at his elementary school this past winter and absolutely loved it! His instructor, Kar Hwee Koh, presented algebraic problems in the context of colorful animal or alien monster characters that both attracted his attention and kept his focus during the 45-minute class. The exercises were hands-on with many visuals and manipulatives that excited my son and honed his problem-solving skills. I loved the low-key and low pressure atmosphere of the class that also managed to incite his curiosity for more challenging problems. Other than his extreme enjoyment of the class, I loved the take-home explanations of classwork and suggestions for extensions at home. Our entire family enjoyed this first Singapore Math experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

My daughter really enjoyed the Lexington Singapore Math enrichment program offered at Fiske. We never thought she would learn fractions in first grade … but she had a lot of fun with it! Kar Hwee’s small-group class makes learning challenging and fun while giving children individual attentions. We are very happy with the enrichment class and my daughter is now enrolled in the regular weekly class!

My younger daughter has never been very excited about math, so I asked Kar Hwee to tutor her, hoping she would feel more comfortable with math. Indeed, now she makes up math problems casually at dinner time, and I can see she is very engaged during math class!

Your class is very structured and interesting. You encourage students to be their best and to learn from their mistakes. Your email after each class to the parents has been very informative which provides a way for the parents to be in the loop of what is going on in the classroom. Great class! Thank you very much.

My daughter attended math classes at The Lexington Singapore School this past winter and spring. Kar Hwee Koh is a wonderful and caring teacher. She works hard to address each child's individual needs. My daughter's report card showed improvement in math after she attended the school.

Dear Kar Hwee - I want to let you know how how grateful I am that my daughter is in your math class this year. I have seen a significant improvement in her skill level as well as in her confidence in math. I appreciate the very thoughtful curriculum that supports what she is learning in school and she enjoys your very supportive and engaging style of teaching. When I asked my daughter for a few words on your class she said it was challenging and she gives it 5 stars!! The joy and passion you bring to the classroom is wonderful and my daughter looks forward to class each week! Thank you!

Enrolled my children this past year and was very pleased. The instructor was dedicated to making sure my kids understood the material -- went above and beyond. Highly recommend!
