Mr Sng graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with a Bachelor of Engineering degree(Honours) and went on to obtain a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education from the National Institute of Education (NIE). Being a keen learner, while being a full-time teacher in school, he went on to achieve a Masters degree in Science from Nanyang Technological University(NTU).
Before joining Learners’ Lodge, Mr Sng has more than 10 years of experience teaching Mathematics in school. He has a keen interest in Mathematics and has written several A-level Mathematics books, in addition to being author and consultant for several Ten-Year series titles for the GCE A-level Examination approved by Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board(SEAB). It includes the 2017 edition featuring the latest developments and changes in the H1 and H2 Mathematics syllabus in junior colleges.
One of his strength is the ability to deliver the lessons in a concise and structured manner, which often relates well to the students. He seeks different ways to give ideas across to students, and through the process guide them into deeper thinking and understanding of mathematical concepts rather than merely providing the solutions. He believes that every setback is a learning experience and overtime with hard work and grit, every individual can overcome his/her weakness and fine-tune the mistakes into valuable learning opportunities. His belief and patience in every student help them overcome their fear for the subject and install back the confidence in students. Whether with high-achievers or those who have lost their sense of direction in the process, working together as a cohesive unit, Mr Sng can help them get back on the correct track.
Since 2016, Mr Sng has joined Learners’ Lodge Education Centre, serving as an Education Specialist, teaching Mathematics classes at Integrated Programme Mathematics(IP), and A level Mathematics at both J1 and J2 levels.
Thank you for all the guidance the past year! You never failed to make classes fun and interesting, especially when you would say ‘whole world stop’. Those were the moments where I picked up on good habits and how to not repeat the same mistake again :) You made math so much more enjoyable and I grew to love it after attending your class. Thank you, Mr Sng!

Mr Sng Tat Ming is a very passionate mathematics teacher. He always tries his very best to find a simpler method to explain to the class, which makes mathematics a lot easier. He is also very patient in guiding us. No matter how many times we ask him to explain a particular concept, he will still slowly explain it to us. I am very grateful to have Mr Sng as my mathematics teacher. My H2 Math had improved from D in prelims to A in A level!
Chien Hung Yeh, Dunman High School (2019)
Thank you Mr Sng Tat Ming for being such a fun and engaging tutor, making lessons much more bearable. Thank you for making math concepts so much easier to understand with your analogies and summaries for every topic. My math could not have improved without your guidance!! Thank you:)
Anna Ng Hui Sze, Anglo-Chinese Junior College (2019)
Thank you Mr Sng Tat Ming for all the support and guidance you’ve given me leading up to As! You were very approachable and patient with us and your teaching helped me understand things much better as well as gain confidence in math which helped me improve beyond my expectations. I’m really glad to have been taught by you!
Clarice Goh, Raffles Institution (2019)
Mr Sng was a very helpful teacher and his math lessons were extremely helpful in providing us with the practice required to improve our grades. My math grades saw a great improvement from prelims to A levels! Thank you, Mr Sng, for all your help!

Thank you Mr Sng Tat Ming for believing in me despite disappointing you a few times :”)) thanks for pushing us to do better!
Charis Kwok Jae Ern, Anglo-Chinese Junior College (2019)
Mr Sng Tat Ming teaches concepts in a comprehensive and engaging manner. Not only does he summarise the gist of each topic, but he also recommends us ways to approach the different questions, allowing us to understand the question requirements much easier. Doing the questions in class with us, he also showed us that the “hard” questions that we are doing are actually not so daunting with more practice.
Thank you, Mr Sng, for creating such an engaging, open and fun learning environment for us.

To Mr Sng Tat Ming, the Miracle Worker.
I have always loved Mathematics. However, being overwhelmed by the H2 Mathematics syllabus since J1 and not having a prior background in Additional Mathematics in Secondary School, I lost grip of that passion. This was to the point that getting an “ungraded result” (U) for internal Mathematics examinations would be normal to me, even in the Preliminary Examinations. But just when I thought all hope was lost, Mr Sng came to my rescue with endless motivation, guidance and support, in, and out of the classroom. The all-around approach that Mr Sng takes on, whether is it covering the syllabus comprehensively yet interestingly or just being a mentor sharing his wisdom-filled life stories, has led me to find my passion for Mathematics again, through inspiration. Being from a U-grader in Prelims, to an A-grader in the A levels, I owe all of this to Mr Sng Tat Ming. I can’t help but be eternally grateful to have had him, by my side, through the challenging journey to A levels. Truly, Mr Sng is a miracle worker and I am the testimony of the great mentor that he is.
Thank you, so very much, Mr Sng.

Dear Mr Sng,
You have been a wonderful teacher who pushed me to keep moving forward. Even with questions that stumped the whole class, you would still encourage us to give it our best and keep trying. Whenever we made mistakes, you would hit the nail on the head and accurately address our misconceptions. (To this day it amazes me how fast you can spot errors in my upside down chicken scrawl workings.) I’m really grateful for all that you have done for me and it has really made a difference for me in my As.
Thank you, Mr Sng!
Chng Sze Han, Victoria Junior College (2017)
Mr Sng is one of the most patient tutors I have met. His passion for maths is contagious and makes lessons enjoyable and fun for his students. Moreover, Mr Sng has the ability to break down seemingly complicated math concepts into fundamental ideas, which really helped me Ace my A levels. Thank you, Mr Sng!
Tan Wei Howe, Victoria Junior College (2017)
Mr Sng is an excellent teacher who has a firm grasp of the topics and syllabus. His engaging teaching style makes me look forward to his lessons. He is also very friendly and approachable, so I feel comfortable asking him for help. He even offered to answer questions on WhatsApp. I’m very grateful because he always revising with me my weakest topics like Graphing Techniques, turning my D into an A at A Levels! Thank You, Mr Sng!
