"SpeedCount Home Tutors has over 20 years of experience teaching mental arithmetic in Singapore & Taiwan - Our abacus home tutors have helped hundreds of students in Asia to master mental calculations using the traditional, yet powerful method of Abacus, or some call it the Soroban.
One of our teachers, Charlene, most recently moved to the Silicon Valley, where Math is a universal language; and stiff competition among peers have caused Math to be painful or fearful subject for many. She will be introducing our fun and progressive syllabus to help children and parents in the South Bay area accelerate learning and cultivate a love for Math.
1) Abacus Tutor
Being bilingual, I’m able to conduct my classes in both English and Mandarin. I mastered mental sums since a young age with the abacus method and that gave me confidence in learning Math at a more rigorous pace from grade 1 onwards with better concentration and photographic memory.
I have a fun & progressive syllabus that has proven to be successful with my students in helping them calculate difficult sums mentally in seconds! I will personalize lessons for each student under my care, according to their learning abilities. Our classes do not go beyond more than 4 pax for personalized attention and maximum learning.
- Trial lesson: $10 only! Please message us on our facebook page or website to enroll.
- Weekly lessons: from $30 per 1 hour 15 mins lesson.
Additional $5 - $10 per lesson to travel to your preferred venue.
Since college days, Charlene also did piano lessons, tennis coaching and creative writing lessons too and will love to share her skills to anyone who’s interested in these areas on an adhoc basis:
2) Piano Lessons
“I’ve been teaching piano to beginners, both classical and contemporary for over 10 years, working with mainly children and some adults who are interested in picking up finger basics and a foundation strong enough that it will be easy for you to pick up your favourite songs in no time.
My goal as your teacher will be for you to enjoy the instrument and eventually use the skill to make someone’s day a lil’ brighter with melodies from the black n white keys.
Please contact me at the above number if you will like to try a first lesson for $10, which will mainly be assessing your skills and finding out what could be the best lesson plan for you.”
