My name is Ariez Rashaad bin Azizullaili and I used to think Mathematics was one of the most difficult subjects, but that all changed when I met Teacher Jonathan. You see, I used to aim to just get a C for Maths and I was known by my friends for not being able to do maths. After I started studying with Teacher Jonathan, in less than 3 months l started catching up in class and after a while I was the one who started teaching my friends. Maths became one of my favourite subjects after he started teaching me. It is very easy to understand what he is teaching and he is also a fun guy to talk to, he is very caring and he will do everything he can to make sure you get good grades. I was more motivated to practice maths and even my school teacher noticed it. My school teacher stopped worrying for me and started believing in me so l felt empowered. In just 5 months Teacher Jonathan changed my average C to an A and I dont know what l wouldve done without him. From the bottom of my heart I truly believe Teacher Jonathan is one of the best Maths teachers. If you are struggling to do Maths I'd recommend you to give him a chance to teach you.

I was doing quite badly in Add Maths, consistently getting low marks and never do well in the first assessment exam in Year 10. This obviously made me anxious and panic as IGCSE levels were drawing near. Every single of Mr. Jonathan's lessons is well thought-out and structured to deliver the most within the limited time. With his thorough understanding of the IGCSE curriculum, he is able to cover the contents extensively yet pick out the very essential points that frame each topic perfectly. This makes it much easier to understand the application of concepts and also serves as a convenient source of refrence during revision. The lessons were well paced and comfortable to be in if there were any questions which I could always openly consult him. He's extremely responsive and quick to address them; especially the common errors and the misconceptions of applications. I progressively got better, moving to a B from D for Addmaths and then ultimately getting a A* for my 2019 Oct/Nov IGCSE exam : from a hopeless D to an unthinkable A*. Would definitely recommend Mr. Jonathan to anyone who's looking for a knowledgeable, resourceful experienced and dedicated tutor!

Hi Teacher Jonathan, I would like to express my gratitude to you for helping me get distinctions (A*) for both IGCSE 2019 May Addmaths and Maths !
I think I told you before that Math used to be my weakest subject when I was in primary school and lower secondary. I was always struggling with it and only managed to scrape a pass during exams. Nonetheless, things changed when I joined your Math tuition in Year 10. My results improved tremendously and I also began to find Maths a more enjoyable subject.
Thanks a lot for being so patient with me and going through the extra mile to help me understand the complex Maths concepts! I am especially grateful that whenever I did not understand how to do a particular question (which happened quite often), you would explain things to me step-by-step and show me the different methods to tackle the question. It was because of your tuition class that I was able to consistently attain good grades for Maths from Year 10 onwards! I wish you well and you are the BEST MATHs TUTOR! All the best to you Sir !

Note from Ern Xuan's Mother – “Hi Jonathan, sorry for this long message. I told Ern Xuan that we should write you a glowing testimonial as that’s the least we could do! I’m so thankful that I signed her up for your Addmaths and Maths tuition! As a typical parent, it’s my hope that my child does well in her studies, but more importantly, I want her to develop confidence. As Ern Xuan was always struggling with Maths in primary school, confidence was something she severely lacked when it came to the subject. Instead, there was a lot of fear and resistance. Those were the days! Imagine my surprise when she told me in Year 10 that she ‘kinda like Maths now’ after just one month in your class! It was even more SURPRISING and JAW-DROPPING that she improved in leaps and bounds and went on to top her cohort in Addmaths that year! WHAT A TRANSFORMATION! That achievement really boosted her confidence and I cannot thank you enough! 🙏 Ern Xuan and I will always have the greatest respect and admiration for you. Please continue with your good work and mould young minds!”
Mr. Jonathan is my one and only tuition teacher since the start of my PT3 year until the end of SPM. I’ve trusted him since day 1 as I’ve seen the immense differences he’s made to my grades. I wasn’t perfect in maths during my PT3 days as my grades weren’t consistent. That’s when my dad decided to seek help from him. Since then, he has helped me by brushing up my skills and lessening the amount of careless mistakes I used to make. At last, I scored distinctions throughout the whole year and even for PT3. He made me LOVE maths and encouraged me to challenge myself more, hence that’s why I decided to take Add Maths. Under him, I’ve NEVER EVER failed Add Maths in my entire life. Although in the beginning I could only achieve Cs and Ds but I still stayed with him because I, myself could see that I was improving day by day. Class by class. AND HONESTLY, his tips are always ON POINT. If he says “That’s coming out”, then it DEFINITELY is coming out. I have seen the improvements he’s made to me and others as well. I scored A+ for Maths throughout the whole year and was always getting better grades for Add Maths after every exam. In the end, for my SPM, I scored an A+ for Maths and an A for Add Maths. With that, I can’t thank him enough. I couldn’t have done it without him. A little extra thing that he does for me that I truly appreciate is that he gives me tips and motivates me for other subjects as well. Hence why my SPM results were balanced out and outstanding. (8As 1B+) I totally recommend him if you’re looking for a great tutor, especially for Maths and Add Maths. Even the learning environment is comfortable, enjoyable and full of laughter. He is not only a great tutor but he has also become a best friend to me. That is why I recommend Mr. Jonathan for your children’s future. Thank you, Mr Jonathan for absolutely EVERYTHING. :) <3
Compared to other teachers, Mr. Jonathan was able to help me understand the concepts of the subject well. I was quite a slow learner in Additional Mathematics and struggled to perceive in many chapters. However with his patient and determined guidance, he encouraged me to never give up and to push myself to succeed as he told me that it was not too late to score in my IGCSE
examinations. True enough, by attending his classes diligently and asking questions regularly, I was able to attain an A* in my 2018 May/June exams. He is truly a teacher who cares for his students in helping them to obtain good results and wellbeing.
By the end of the first month of my Year 10, I was getting worried.Being barely able to understand the concepts of Addmaths is definitely not that I could imagine.Besides,it is every student's dream for a full set of distinctions.This was when I decided to join Mr. Jonathan's class.
My first lesson was certainly the most memorable one.Having barely know about much topics taught in class,Mr Jonathan sprang into action."Funtions : Domain of function is all the possible input of x and Range is all the possible output of y" was a common heard phrase in the class.Such teaching methods allowed me to remember crucial mathematical applications and prevent detrimental mind blanks during class work,assignments and most importantly ,exams.Such concepts are so firmly rooted in me that I still hear Mr.Jonathan's voice in my head each time I do functions related questions.
However,if you learn conceptually and hate memory work,do not fret ! Mr. Jonathan will definitely clarify all your doubts regarding any Mathematics topic.Not sure why the gradient of the normal is the negative reciprocal of the gradient of a line ? Mr. Jonathan will use a wide variety of methods,from detailed explanation with graphs, to algebraic formulae manipulation. Every student will surely learn Mr. Jonathan active teaching classes.
Regardless of who you are,your learning style or preferences, Mr.Jonathan is undoubtedly one of the best tutor to improve your grades. Lessons are not only allow me to catch up or go ahead of school class, but also reaffirm my existing concepts.Being able to shoot up from my near fails to both grade A* (Maths 98 and Addmaths 96) in 2017 Oct/Nov IGCSE exam.Big 'Thank you' to Mr Jonathan.
Mr. Jonathan's passion towards Maths is evident in his teaching.I never fail to be inspired by his stories and experiences that have moulded him and how he applies and relates them to Maths, providing food for thought after every lesson.His teaching opens doors you never knew existed.He offers glimpses into strange possibilities when Maths can applied - a diverse range from engineering science to corporate surveys among others.His teaching methods are really unique and interesting - using inspirational, personal stories and analogies to make a strong and memorable statement.You can't help but look at Maths in an increasingly favourable light under his tutelage.
Besides his interesting way of teaching, he provides additional help after class or even through WhatsApp to those who need it, to ensure complete understanding of any concepts and questions.It is his dedication that fuels this drive in me to achieve better grades.Mr Jonathan certainly gets you results - he is one of the most dedicated tutor I have encountered in which he places so much of commitment on his students' learning progress.
Under his guidance, I developed immensed understanding and appreciation for Maths as Mr. Jonathan is one tutor who explains all these formulae which many of us merely apply without wondering the workings behind it.He will painstakingly guide you through your learning,giving you numerous tips, tricks and strategems you have never encountered before with regard to handling the exam,breaking challenging questions into simple steps, and even the proper thought process when doing certain questions.I find it hard to believe that other Maths tutors will take the enormous effort needed to develop an entirely novel paradigm of study Maths while he prepares a methodical and step-by-step outline for basically every type of question foe each topic can be as short as two A4 pages.Its exactly what you're supposed to have in your brain before entering examination laid out nicely in physical representation.
Under his tutelage, I obtained grade A* for Maths and Additional Maths in IGCSE May/June examinations.If you're looking for a tutor that will pique your interest in Maths,take the necessary time to strengthen your shaky understanding of Maths or even transform Maths into a positively easy subject,Mr. Jonathan is unequivocally your number one choice.Aloha to Mr. Jonathan - my great mentor.

I was a 13-year-old student in Year 9 when I decided to begin learning Additional Mathematics early. Having little to no prior knowledge of the subject, I enlisted Mr Jonathan's help in mid-2015. Hating the subject, I gave him no less than a living hell every class, and yet he still took the effort to teach a stubborn student like yours truly. I took his lessons once a week, with breaks during holiday periods, and in total had 10 months worth of classes with him. In that 10 months, I managed to master the concepts and ideas of the entire syllabus thanks to his help. Sitting for the Additional Mathematics IGCSE paper in May/June 2016, I managed to get an A*(94) for his subject. I must say that Mr Jonathan is among the most dedicated teachers I know, and is certainly a tutor, a great mentor, for students wishing to take the subjects he teaches.
Having failed the first term Additional Maths test in Form 4,it was a constant fear burgeoning in me as there was a high probability of me failing the subject at the 2016 SPM exam !
I have have had my own fair share of private tutors,especially for Maths,since the beginning of Form 1,but all of them deemed me as a hopeless case and gave up on me.It was only when I entered the private tuition class of Mr Jonathan before my grades started improving vastly.I eventually achieved a 'C' for my Form 4 mid term and a 'B' for the year end examination respectively.
Patient and dedicated,Mr Jonathan would always explain the concepts and solution in great details no matter how long it took and he never gave up on a student despite how slow their improvement progress might be.He taught with great vigor,in class,making sure the student understood the concepts and rationale behind each step before moving on.The confidence he had in each and every student was heartwarming.
Joining up Mr Jonathan's tuition class was extremely serendipitous after I bumped into the tuitionjob.com portal.I obtained 9 'A's and a 'B' in the 2016 SPM exam including an 'A+' for Maths and 'A' for Additional Maths that just released a moment ago.I couldn't wait to pen down my words of appreciations to MrJonathan.I am very thankful to have him as my tutor.I wish you the best of luck.
I was struggling Year 10 Mathematics and Additional Maths student when I first joined Jonathan's tuition class.At first I was skeptical about the whole thing-how was Jonathan's tuition any different from others,who likewise claimed to produce excellent results in their students ?
However overtime he proved his ability - his different approach with his own formulas and shortcuts renewed my interest in the subjects.I was startled by how Jonathan's method helped me to comprehend maths easily.His continuous encouragement and aid spurred me on and it was with disbelief that from an F9 score during the first mid-year exams,my results shot up to an A* for my IGCSE 2015 June examinations.
Mr Jonathan is a very experienced tutor who understands the subjects very well.He is able to educate through many creative techniques which captures and delivers the essence of the mathematical concepts,thus bringing the subject to life,allowing it to grow within us as we grow with it.Thus ,I would highly recommend him to anyone who seeks to achieve for he has provided obvious positive results countless times.
Thank you Sir Jonathan.
Mr Jonathan is a very humorous yet sarcastic person whether he knows it or not !
He conducts the class in a very organized manner by giving complete and understandable notes during the lessons.His notes and questions are sufficient for students to face the examinations.His mode of teaching helps students to understand,interprete and solve in the simplest yet comprehensive ways.
He even conducted basic and extra class tirelessly by paying special attention for those who are not strong in Maths foundation concepts.His punctuality is so impressed that second to none in which sometime he arrived the class earlier than students ! I think this is possibly due to his passion towards Mathematics and enjoy the every moments when he is making an effort to impart knowledge to the students.
He emphasized the idea of time-management and smart examination strategy that he make sure the classes are on schedule.He made it a point that notification to students are done if there are changes to the pre-set class schedule.He makes proper arrangement for the replacement class so as to fit in best time and date for the students.This itself has thought us the lessons of time-management which is beyond the SPM level !
With the ever presence of advance technology,he creates social media group that serve as the platform for students to have discussion and exchanging ideas.He even posted questions for the students and frequently assisted students in school based homework and assignments.He compiled past year questions from other states and schools with adequate working steps and suggested marking schemes.
The amazing thing is he tries to answer every possible question posted to him through social media even in the middle of the night ! He is a tutor with the unbelievable level in patience and tolerance.His class has never been boring to say,as he even injected materials on aptitude,riddle and jokes in the class.Its real fun and truly enjoy every minute of the class.This will stay on as fond memories for me.
I scored A+ for Mathematics and Additional Maths in SPM 2014 and currently is attending a foundation program in Australia.My highest gratitude and regards to Sir Jonathan.Happy Father's Day !
To Sir Jonathan
When I was stuck in school at O Level,my mother suggested a tutor to help me with Core Maths and Additional Maths.I was resistant at first not knowing what to expect,thinking why would a tutor be anymore helpful than my school teacher !
But Mr Jonathan's way of teaching Maths makes you look at the problems from different angle and it's actually kind of fun.He is very enthusiastics and persistent towards teaching.
I managed to obtain straight A's in my 2014 IGCSE Winter Examinations and obtained A* for my Core Maths and Additional Maths.
Thank you Sir Jonathan.
I have written this recommendation of your works to share with others.
Before I took my daughter Veronica to him for the tuition class,I thought she was going to be one of those students with difficulties in learning Maths.I have witnessed Jonathan towards his profession in teaching.He helps his students willingly in academic matters and imparts proper perspective and values towards challenge.
He is willing to walk the extra mile together with them to achieve a better grades and a bright future.My daughter had no interest in the subjects initially but Jonathan has managed to motivate her,build her interest and assist her in gaining confidence in handling her studies.
I truly appreciate his willingness in lending his helping hand to others and for being an encourager at all times to people around him.Thank you so much.
Mr. Jonathan's class had always been a wonderland to learn as he seem to have the power and capability to solve challenging and fearsome questions.He used a seemingly easy and creative solution which all the time had taken us aback and felt AMAZED !
Thank you Mr. Jonathan for spending your time,energy and dedicated efforts teaching us Maths and Additional Maths and guided us unselfishly in other subjects as well by providing us with the state trial papers .
Your method of teaching was always unique,appealing and has made me understood and picked up the skill efficiently.I really appreciate and feel grateful for having your guidance throughout the difficult times.I am happy to say that I have achieved 8A+ and 1A(Biology) in SPM 2014.I believed that the skill that I acquired from your class will be essential and helpful for my Pre-University studies which I will pursue soon.
Thanks a million Sir Jonathan.
When I first stepped into Jonathan's Maths tuition class almost 2 years ago,I really did not know what to expect.I thought it would be another ordinary and BORING tuition! However to my surprise,I really enjoyed the class.
Jonathan's Maths class has definitely exceeded my expectations ! I found the 'error-analysis' exercise during the class the most helpful.His lessons have helped me to truly grasp many of the mathematical concepts and I've learnt how to properly apply my knowledge of Maths which I didn't quite good at in school.I think Jonathan is very good at teaching and communicating and I have benefitted from his class greatly.The class environment was conducive and lively with the adequate supply of study materials which were extremely helpful.
Jonathan is friendly,approachable and very knowledgeable,even in other subjects beside Maths.The exam strategies and techniques he taught me have been invaluable.I've never really been particularly interested or good at Maths,but thanks to Jonathan,I went from grade C and D to getting A* in Maths and Additional Maths for my 2014 IGCSE Winter examinations.I would never have been able to achieve these grades without him.Two thumbs up! Thanks for everything ,SIR Jonathan.
To Whom It May Concern :
When I first started tuition with Mr Jonathan,my biggest problem was perhaps solving questions that combined different topics together since I was used to practicing questions based on content of individual topics.However,during my tuition sessions,I took on many unusual questions that required combinations of knowledge from several topics that I could not comprehend initially,but that Mr Jonathan managed to explain to me in detail until I fully understood the methods.Mr Jonathan frequently emphasizes the importance of going one step further by understanding the very basic concepts used in the process of solving questions.This is something that I realized has come really handy in my course,as memorizing the methods to similar questions is not enough when new questions are tweaked such that they still look similar but touch on different concepts within the same chapter.I acquired new skill and understanding while sharpening my skills and deepening my understanding which had tremendously helped me in problem solving skill.
Mr Jonathan's patience in teaching has always amazed me.Whenever I feel a bit lost or unable to grasp the concept together,he would try explaining over and over again,pulling out helpful resources along the way.As I am mainly a visual learner and Mr Jonathan understood that diagrams and text ,in addition to his own explain enhance and allow me to fully understand the concepts completely.
Mr Jonathan's friendliness and kindness allowed me to break away from that shy personality and start asking questions whenever I needed to clarify.Mr Jonathan would always explain thoroughly the connections,differences and similarities between concepts.The tuition sessions not only taught me a lot of essential skills and gave me complete understanding of the contents of the IB course but also inspired me to appreciate and admire the power of these subjects.Mr Jonathan's radiating passion in these areas is definitely contagious to others.That is why I believe that Mr Jonathan is a tutor like no other and is in a class of his own.He truly loves his subject and is passionate;and can manage his students's self-belief and work ethic.Combine these two factors and you have one of the best.
After attended classes for slightly over a year , I scored 7 in IB Maths Exam in November 2014.Thank you Teacher Jonathan.
Maths and Additional Maths were always the downfall in my report cards - marring the row of 'A' grades.There would be that one glaring 'D' grade for both Maths.I had come to hate the subjects and was having extreme difficulty in the classes,falling far behind everyone else !
I had lost all hope of getting a passing grade in my IGCSE Maths and Additional Maths until a friend of mine recommended Mr Jonathan's tuition class.I was a little apprehensive at first,never having needed or attended any sort of private tuition but my fear were unfounded.Mr Jonathan was not only highly certified,he was one of those rare tutors whose style of teaching truly helps the students and motivates them to learn.After less than a month of tuition,I found that I was actually enjoying the subjects,and was seeing huge improvement in both my Maths result.
However,the true surprise came a year later,when I received my 2014 Summer IGCSE results ; I received A for both Maths and Additional Maths.Mr Jonathan has pulled me up from a failing grade to being among top of my class.
I would recommend Mr Jonathan to anyone as I had an amazing tutor who was an amazing person in general.I am more satisfied with my experience in receiving tution from Mr Jonathan and I think the results speak for themselves.
Thank you,Mr (Sir) Jonathan.
My experience with Maths since Elementary level can at best described as struggle.A believer that Maths was all about drilling questions until familiarity,I pushed myself to complete as many practice questions as I could hoping that I could understand the concepts that were so foreign to me - Calculus,Polynomial,Trigonometry etc .... Until I joined Mr Jonathan's lessons at A-Level.
Jonathan engages the class with amusing anecdotes and stories about his experiences and his passion for teaching and for the subject is so evident in his manner that it is contagious.Lessons with Jonathan don't feel like your regular tutorial lessons where you sit and attempt to absorb as much as you can.He inspires his students to want to learn more about Maths.
Even beyond his ability to to motivate the most unwilling of students,what has impressed me most about Jonathan is his dedication to his students.Ask him any question during the week and sure he is to explain untill you feel completely confident of your understanding.He is exemplary both in his calibre and commitment in teaching.
He is,without a doubt,someone who spark your INTEREST,improve your results and remain a mentor and friend beyond that.
I scored an 'A' for Maths in my A-Level CIE examinations during the short stint with his class.
To Sir Jonathan,I would like to express my highest gratitude for guided me through the toughest challenge yet in my studies.
Additional Maths is a taboo topic for me and has been the bane of my life since Form 4.Its a struggle for me to attain any thing to pass and the crucial SPM dawns on me,My mother decided to to take quick action.I have had other tutors before but I needed a GOOD ONE desperately.At one time,I was even thinking about dropping Add Maths in SPM.
She came across Mr. Jonathan's website and made arrangements for him to tutor me for Add Maths.
Mr. Jonathan is both resourceful and comprehensive.His explanations are clear and easy to understand.In many instances,he was able to highlight probable questions and pinpoint areas which most students tend to have problems with.This is culled,I believe from years of experience and being focused in the subject.
With Mr Jonathan's help,I have been able to score top marks ever since.Till today,I am still astounded with my first results after 2 months with Mr. Jonathan.I scored an A in my term exam.Well,as the saying goes......,the rest is history.
I am currently doing a Science Foundation program in a local university.I would like to express my highest gratitude to Mr. Jonathan for my achievements.May God bless you.
Hi Sir Jonathan,
I came into the tuition class thinking that I wouldn't learn much.After all , I just want to pacify my mother's nagging to take up another tuition.
Additional Maths was just dreadful and I hated the subject because I couldn't understand anything taught in school !
After joining the class,Additional Maths seen a lot easier that what I thought it was.You have put a lot of different and creative ways to make me understand the complex concept in Additional Maths.
You have been very patient and caring and I'm extremely grateful you made Additional Maths mode fun and enjoyable to learn,especially those 'abstract' concepts! My results rocketed from D to A in Additional Maths for IGCSE.
Happy Teachers' Day
Hi Teacher Jonathan,
I got 9 A+ and 1 A(Moral) for my 2013 SPM
Thank you for everything especially those tireless efforts in Maths and Additional Maths and also guided me in other subjects unselfishly.
May God bless youand I can't thank you enough for all you have done for me.
