Message from our Founder

Dr Daniel Chua

Founder and Director

Greetings, parents! I’m Dr. Daniel Chua, a former Head of Department in the Ministry of Education (MOE), an experienced PSLE exam marker, and a former lecturer at the National Institute of Education (NIE).

During my tenure as an MOE teacher, I had the privilege of instructing highly talented students from the Primary Gifted Education Programme (GEP). However, I also recognised that many of my non-GEP students possessed remarkable but untapped potential.

To address this, I decided to impart some of the critical thinking skills typically taught in the GEP to all my students. To my great satisfaction, these skills enabled them to significantly enhance their English grades.

This forms the foundation of our DEPTH Framework. My team and I employ a ‘gifted’ approach in teaching students of all proficiency levels, ensuring that they too can excel in the subject.

Our Teaching Team

We take pride in helping our students achieve breakthroughs in their results.
We are able to do that because of the strong team that we have built to teach, organise and administer our robust programmes.

At Cognitus Academy, our teachers are the heart and soul of our Mathematics programmes. We take great care in selecting our educators, and they go through an intensive 3-month training programme to build their teaching skills.

Our curriculum and teaching methods are always evolving to keep up with changes in the education system. This transformation is led by our curriculum team, which includes ex-MOE teachers, Heads of Department, Senior Teachers, and our experienced Cognitus instructors.

Conquering Mathematics through the DEPTH Framework

Our curriculum methodology provides 5 key elements to help students learn effectively during our Mathematics lessons.
This framework evaluates students’ current ability, helps to clear doubts, and expose students to exam-based questions.

Our curriculum structure includes asking probing questions in class to encourage students to explore, discover and build their confidence in Mathematics.

Deepened Curriculum, Heightened Learning

Apart from what is learnt from the school syllabus, students will develop a deeper insight into the curriculum. Understanding the core concepts deeply will also enhance students’ ability to apply heuristics to handle higher-order thinking questions.

Eliminated Errors and Misconceptions

Drills and practices develop fluency and heighten students’ awareness of their carelessness when solving Mathematics questions. Training students to understand their own tendencies greatly improves the accuracy of their calculations.

Practical and Authentic (Real World) Mathematics Teasers

Learning out of real-world context requires abstract thinking. This requirement stumps some students who need to see concrete examples. Students will learn to link Mathematics to authentic real-world problems, enhancing their number sense and conceptual development.

Think Critically and Mathematically

Thinking critically requires habits of mind and problem-solving skills. Merging critical and mathematical thinking makes the learning of Mathematics exciting and engaging. Learning Mathematics in this way unlocks the fun and challenging aspects of the subject.

Honed Precision


With carefully selected tasks for each lesson, students will learn how to be quick and accurate in their computations. Beyond procedural accuracy, students will also develop structural thinking that provides repeatable steps for analysing non-routine questions.

About the Secondary Maths Level Up Programme

The main challenge students struggle with at the start of a new Academic Year is having to learn new topics while trying to grasp old concepts taught in the previous year. This could lead to a snowball effect and result in students falling off the proverbial cliff by the end of year exams.

With the school holidays approaching, now is the ideal time for struggling students to consolidate their areas of need and level up.

Cognitus Academy is pleased to launch a series of intensive and effective Secondary Maths Level Up Programmes for current Sec 1 to Sec 4 students.

About the Secondary Maths Power Up Programme

In our experience, many students find A Maths difficult because they are already weak in Algebra and other big topics. Losing confidence for Maths at the start of Sec 3 may spiral downwards to greater fears and worry. Therefore, it is important to level up for A Maths right now and start building towards A1 for the subject.

To support Sec 3 students who need a boost in A Maths, our team of ex-MOE teachers, exam markers and Heads of Department is pleased to launch the Sec 3 A Maths Power Up Programme.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is your Secondary Mathematics programme different from other Mathematics tuition programmes?
Cognitus Academy applies the DEPTH Framework where we ensure that learning does not simply come from drill and practice. DEPTH Framework focuses on real-life application of Mathematics and problem-solving skills. We follow a structured lesson plan where students apply their knowledge in bite-size practices and move on to problem sums to build their confidence. Students who are strong in Mathematics will be stretched through practices with non-routine questions.

Β 

In addition, we apply a Headstart, Reinforce and Revise strategy to ensure that students of every level of readiness can benefit from our programmes.
What is the difference between IP/IB and O level Mathematics?
90% of the IP/IB Mathematics topics are similar to that of the O level Mathematics. Our programmes are created to teach our students the concepts and to stretch them further to higher order thinking. Hence, IP/IB students will continue to feel engaged during lessons while the O level students’ potential are stretched.
How are the results of your past students?
We have consistently achieved at least 80% distinction for the O level examinations and IP/IB Year 4 examinations for both Mathematics.
How do students get additional help when needed?
All our students have our educational consultants’ contact number. They can post questions to our consultants and our consultant swill provide clear solutions with explanations to the students. The students can also request for additional consultation sessions when needed.
