Wong Ian (9YO) and
Wong Roan (6YO)
When I first enrolled my elder son Ian, he was not very sensitive to numbers. In just a few terms, I noticed that Ian had a tremendous improvement in his calculation for mathematics. Although the programme does not focus on traditional school mathematics-teaching methods, Ian is much more focused and quicker in terms of calculation, which is really important.
After observing improvements in Ian, I decided to enrol my younger son Roan. At the time of enrolment I did not expect much as Roan was much younger as compared to Ian. To my surprise, Roan could handle the problems and he is very focused in learning despite his age.
In my opinion, the programme is designed in a very fun and engaging way for young children. Mentalmatics manages to capture children’s interest and continue their learning journey without any stress. All the teachers have been extremely patient and accommodating while creating a very conducive learning environment. Thumbs up!

Prior to enrolling my children in Mentalmatics, they are not very focused while completing their given homework from school. Mathematics was one of the subjects that they do not have interest in. With that concern in mind, I decided to give Mentalmatics a try.
After a few terms, I can see that their focus and concentration skills have improved. On top of that, they are able to apply what they learn here in Mentalmatics to their school problem solving book. They are able to calculate the mathematics problems with ease.
Teachers are able to identify each of my children’s weakness and help guide and encourage them to practice more. With that encouragement and guidance my children are able to excel and improve.

Xavier Teo Yu Xiang (7YO)
Xavier has shown great improvement in speed and calculation in mathematics sums. After quite a few sessions he has also developed more interest in numbers. Gaining confidence in the progress of learning in Mentalmatics, he can now attempt school work with no fear.
Teachers are able to identify individual child’s progress and teach them accordingly which helps children greatly in their learning. Instead of pressuring the children to learn at the same pace, teachers will ensure that every child learn at their most comfortable pace.

Ng Yang Jie Marcus (4YO)
When Marcus first joined Mentalmatics he was 3 years old, his attention span was rather short and Marcus did not know how to write numbers yet. 2 months after attending Mentalmatics, he was able to write numbers well and now has better knowledge of numbers. At that age, children tend to focus more on playing but at times Marcus looks forward to doing his homework.
Mentalmatics has a fun way in engaging Marcus in his learning journey. They have a game app that Marcus enjoys playing!

Enrique Chan Jun Hon(5YO)
We have observed that after Enrique started Mentalmatics, there is a great improvement in his number sensitivity. He is able to calculate with confidence, at the same time gain the ability to give better structured answers to given questions. Initially he would need someone to sit beside him to accompany him while he completes his given homework. Now Enrique can complete his work on his own without much guidance from us.
Teachers are responsible and often go beyond their routine job area to help children. Special appreciation to teachers in Bukit Batok who help to instil discipline for Enrique.

Keryn Lam (5YO),
with her Parents
Keryn has been attending Mentalmatics for the past 2 months. Initially, she was not able to focus and had very short attention span. After attending Mentalmatics, Keryn has been more focused and attention span has been lengthened at least 3 times of the amount of time she used to be. She was able to complete more tasks and concentration level has greatly improved.
Apart from all these, most of the assessment given by the school was close to 100% accuracy for all the sums with minimum parent assistance and within very short period of time (i.e. less than 20 minutes). She portrayed more confidence in doing her work. Teachers in class are all very friendly and greatly encourages all the kids to go to the next level if they are ready. I am really very impressed by Keryn's progression and she has been looking forward to class every week. Would highly recommend the class to everyone.

Daryl Ng (7YO),
with his Parents
Daryl has been a very active child. He had been feedbacked by his kindergarten teachers that he was not attentive in class and not able to focus in class. He had attended Mentalmatics since January 2018 and we have observed an improvement in his length of attentiveness in his learning sessions. He is also looking forward to his weekly class in Mentalmatics as teacher is able to make the class interesting and encouraging, with little toys awarded to the child with every completed reward card.
I like this programme because it was able to interest my child who has not been interested in any educational enrichment programme. It has an encouraging method to engage children in learning process and reward children with a token of a small gift.

with their Parents
Thanks to Mentalmatics,
my children are able to calculate
with speed and accuracy. Besides,
it also teaches them how to apply
mental arithmetic in computation for school/MOE syllabus.

Ng Sze Hwee (11YO),
with her Father
After joining the programme, Sze Hwee has a better concept in calculations which helps her in her school Mathematics questions.
I like this programme because it is conducted in a conducive environment by patient teachers. Teachers will go the extra mile to give extra classes for those areas that she is weak in.
- Michael Ng, Father of Sze Hwee
Tay Yu Xuan (5YO),
with her Mother
Ever since she started Mentalmatics,
I can see her improvement in calculation.
This programme has helped her to develop her brain as mental arithmetic stimulate both her left and right brain.

Lim Jiaqi (8YO),
Lim Jiajie (5YO)
After learning abacus, they are able to stay focused better. They are able to calculate big numbers quickly with accuracy and the exposure of abacus and mental arithmetic was able to boost their confidence in
solving Mathematics at school.
The reward system gave children an incentive to finish their work quickly in exchange for prizes. The colourful pictures on assessment book covers are interesting and able to motivate children to learn.

Teo Che Wee (3YO),
Teo Cheng Leng (6YO)
My children are able to focus and be disciplined at the study table when they are completing their homework. It is amazing to see how they are able to do abacus and mental arithmetic at a preschool age. My younger son was able to calculate simple sums after 1 term and my elder daughter could work on multiplication and division after attending the programme for a few terms.
The programme is easy to facilitate at home and the amount of homework is reasonable to continue to drive their interest. It helps to develop the child’s brain on calculation and analysis. It also helps to develop their memory. There is a reward scheme which also helps to motivate them to push themselves for speed and excellence.
