Best-Selling Math Author and Critical Thinking Trainer

Terry Chew B.Sc. is the first author in Singapore to publish a Maths Olympiad workbook series since 2007. The series ‘Unleash the Maths Olympian in You!’ is still being used as the Gold-Standard across Southeast Asia today. He is also the author of ‘Wicked Mathematics’, which helps mainstream maths students achieve an A* for the PSLE by equipping them with essential problem-solving strategies and tools in 28 lessons. His books are used in over 8 countries (Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Indonesia, India, Vietnam, Philippines and the USA) and translated into over 3 languages. He also appears in international media due to his unique teaching methodology – The RA*CE Framework.

The Singapore Maths curriculum places a strong emphasis on Critical Thinking Skills as part of its 21st Century Core Competencies. Students must be able to make connections and think outside the box in order to be successful in school and in the workplace.

With a strong and proven critical thinking training process that is specifically targeted at mathematical problem-solving, TCA has become a highly acclaimed Mathematics Training Centre with its curriculum and teaching framework adopted in Asia, Europe and the USA. Thousands of TCA students in Singapore and overseas have achieved high distinctions in school examinations and international Maths Olympiad competitions.

The RA*CE framework is integrated into our curriculum and focuses on strong concepts and critical thinking in mathematical problem-solving. Surpassing the average Math tuition centre in Singapore, TCA has helped hundreds of students Secure an A* for PSLE and achieve distinctions in RIPMWC and other prestigious Maths Olympiad competitions.
