Hard work does not reflect in their grades.
Not motivated to put in effort in their studies.

Mr Ng discovered the passion to teach since he was 15. Ever since then, there was no looking back. He taught students mathematics in St Andrew’s secondary school and also coached the rugby players when he was there. It was on the training field where he discovered the importance of muscle memory – the ability to repeat a certain reflex or action even when fatigued and under pressure. Thus designing training sessions for players to hone their muscle memory became his love.
In the classroom, he translates coaching skills into teaching difficult Maths concept by breaking it down to simple chunks for students to digest. He designs effective practise sessions for students to master skills that enables them perform in exams. He performs lots of correction from mastering Maths concepts in classroom to forming positive habits beyond classroom. He uphold this motto whenever possible: ” I have not taught, if my students had not learnt” Hence, Mastery @ cheeks is a place where teaching and learning converges.

We keep things really simple. Others may take 15 minutes to explain, we do it in just 5 minutes. We don’t just chase after results. Instead, we focus on fundamentals and first principles and the results will always fall in place.
We infuse life stories and depth into our lessons to help our students understand that there is so much more to the subjects beyond the classroom and its application in the actual working world. We constantly keep our students motivated with our stories.
