Set your kids up for success at these five maths tuition centres in Hong Kong.
Maths can be a bit of a drag. But those who can teach it well can give kids a life-long love of numbers—and help them benefit from all the advantages a good grasp of maths can bring. From getting a creative boost, excelling later in school, and perhaps eventually starting a business, there are many reasons why giving young kids a strong foundation in mathematics is useful. If you want to give your child a boost, these are the five best maths tuition centres in Hong Kong to do it.
1. Seriously Addictive Mathematics (S.A.M.)
The Singapore-developed S.A.M. programme aims to make maths great again in a way that makes sense for all kids. The centre’s unique classroom experience is designed to make maths accessible with interactive teaching that includes discussions, props, and games, while kids work through over 30,000 proprietary worksheets at their own place for a well-rounded maths education that could come in handy should they plan to be the next Bill Gates or Alan Greenspan. A strong emphasis on self-learning and discovery is also part of the programme, and the benefits of these skills can translate into other subjects, too.
Seriously Addictive Mathematics has five locations in Hong Kong.
In Asia, there’s probably no more famous name in maths tuition than Kumon (they made our list of best tutor centres in Hong Kong too!). The highly individual learning method encourages students to develop numeracy skills at their own pace, moving onto the next level only when they’ve mastered the previous. For little learners, kindergarten-level classes introduce basic counting and numbers; factors are introduced for middle-schoolers; for senior students, there’s calculus (cue shudders).
Kumon has various locations across Hong Kong.
3. MathConcept Learning Centre
This maths-specific tutor centre has a series of programmes catering to kids of all ages. The Little First Steps is designed for kindergarteners and develops a love for numbers; the Primary School classes teach foundational math concepts; and the Junior Secondary School section prepares students for complex high school maths. Older kids can take an International Exam Programme that helps them prepare for international maths tests like the IGCSE, IB, and SAT. Got a numerical prodigy on your hands? Help your kid turn into the next Albert Einstein with the two elite Olympiad programmes. New students take a diagnostic test to assess their current maths knowledge; the centre then prepares a personalised study plan for each child that bolsters their strengths, builds their weaknesses, and runs on their schedule.
MathConcept Learning Centre has multiple locations in Hong Kong.
4. Telos Education
Telos believes in a tailored approach to tuition—that’s why all students take an Academic Checkup that assesses a child’s academic abilities, competencies, mindset, and approach to learning. The centre’s maths programme takes a targeted approach to tuition, helping to create a strong foundation of maths concepts before attempting to expand and reinforce skill sets. The wide range of programmes at Telos also covers maths for exam-level students—IB, A-Levels, SAT, IGCSE, and the like—and there’s even a section for Gifted and Talented kids, for those displaying Isaac Newton-like numerical abilities.
Telos Education has three locations across Hong Kong.
This maths-focused tuition centre isn’t just about teaching kids concepts. It aims to give kids a love of numbers that will make learning maths easy. The proprietary Mathnasium MethodTM was created to boost children’s confidence; it uses a three-pronged approach of regular assessments, customised learning plans, and specially trained tutors to ensure each student gets exactly the help they need to learn and love maths. Younger students learn the fundamentals, broadening their concepts and skills at an appropriate pace, while older students can find help for everything from test prep and homework to precalculus and college curriculums.
Mathnasium has locations in Central and Discovery Bay.
6. NTK Academic Group
Your kids can learn maths in exactly the way that suits them at NTK. There are regularly scheduled classes; intensive courses to provide a crash course; private lessons for individualised learning; while online tutoring means students can learn whenever and wherever they want. Although the centre offers tuition and test prep in all the major subjects, exclusive maths tutoring is available for students following the IB, SAT, A-Level, or IGCSE programmes. At all levels, students can also join the NTK Junior Academy for specialised maths classes that help refine skills learned in school and broaden concepts for real-world use.
NTK Academic Group has locations in Causeway Bay and Kowloon.
