Maths@Singapore is first conceived by a Stanford alumni who is a parent of two young children.
His child started her primary school education in a US elementary school during his time in Stanford, before returning to attend a Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE) primary school.
He observed first hand the rigor and effectiveness of the Singapore MOE math program in growing his child to be a better and more confident math learner, as compared to her progress in her previous school.
He believes that math is fundamental to the many technologies solving the world’s greatest challenges, and making people’s lives better. He therefore believes it is important to help our children understand and gain the confidence to use math. More than just for good grades in school, this is to help them better understand the world around them, and inspire them to be the next generation of scientists and engineers the world needs.
Together with his friend, they founded Maths@Singapore to help American children become better math learners through the combination of the rigorous Singapore MOE math programs, expert Singaporean teachers, and effective online classroom learning technologies.

Jason is from Singapore and is a parent of two young children. He holds a degree in chemical engineering from the University of Manchester, and is a Chemical Engineer by profession. He has extensive experience in the pharmaceutical industry, having worked in key engineering positions for many global pharmaceutical firms like GlaxoSmithKline, Amgen and Baxter Bioscience. Jason believes that analytical and problem solving skills are vital for everyone in our everyday life, and not just for scientists and engineers. He believes these skills are not borned in a child but can be developed, and that learning and applying math is one of the best ways to build such life skills in our children.
