Dear Parents/Students,

 

RMSS has been closely monitoring the news and various measures adopted worldwide to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

 

As part of the national effort to ensure the well-being of students and the educational community, MOH has announced that all tuition and enrichment centre-base classes be suspended with effect from 26thMarch 2020, 2359 hours to 30thApril 2020.

 

In anticipation of such suspension of classes, RMSS has procured the hardware and software to enable real-time live-streaming of lessons to the homes of every student.

 

We are pleased to announce that we have completed the testing of equipment and the training of our staff.

RMSS will conduct real-time live streaming of all lessons commencing 27thMarch 2020.

 

To ensure minimum disruption to your child’s learning with us, these lessons will be taught by your child’s tutor at the same time of day as per regular class schedule. In short, there is no change; we are moving the teaching from classrooms to your homes, via the internet.

 

RMSS centres will remain open to assist in any administrative matters and act as a collection point for materials to our students.

 

In such unprecedented times, your continuous cooperation and support would be greatly appreciated.

 

For step-by-step instructions on preparing for the live-streaming of lessons, please refer to the following image guide.

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Dear all,

As per notice from MOH, 

Singaporeans are advised to defer all non-essential travel abroad. If you are returning from mainland China (outside Hubei Province), Iran, Italy, France, Germany, Republic of Korea, *Japan, *Switzerland, *United Kingdom as well as all *ASEAN Countries (with the exemption of those travelling into Singapore from Malaysia via sea or land), will be issued with a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN).

This advisory will apply for 30 days, and will be reviewed thereafter. This is to reduce the risk of Singaporeans contracting COVID-19 while overseas during this global pandemic. 

You are advised to review your travel plans during the March school holidays, and check the MOH website for the latest measures as well as a list of countries that are subject to SHN requirements.

2. ALL visitors will be required to complete a visitor declaration form for contact tracing.

3. All RMSS Tutors and Staff will have their temperature check twice daily. Any who is unwell or found to have a fever will be asked to leave RMSS premises and seek medical help immediately.

4. Students with a temperature below 38 deg C will be allowed into RMSS premises and be issued a coloured sticker as an indication that their temperature has been measured and cleared. The stickers will have to stay on visible areas of the student’s shoulder at all times during period of stay in RMSS premises.

 5. If a student is found to have a temperature equals or more than 38 deg C or display flu like symptoms such as cough, runny nose, shortness of breath, they will be asked to go home.

9. RMSS will continue to monitor the situation closely and act in accordance to MOE precautionary measures in schools. We also urge all students, tutors and staff to continue practising good personal hygiene such as washing their hands frequently with soap, and avoid coming for class if they are sick only to return when fully recovered.

 

Dear Parents and Students, 

Over the past few weeks, we witnessed the rapid spread of the Novel Coronavirus in China. Unfortunately, the virus has found its way to the rest of the world, Singapore included. 

While the number of confirmed local infections is small compared to China, it is worrying as it can spread quickly if not properly monitored and controlled. 

In light of the situation, RMSS has started to implement daily temperature checks for students, teachers and staff, who are also required to declare their travel & health status.

If there comes a time when MOE decides to shut down schools, RMSS will follow suit.

Notwithstanding the temporary closure of schools, life must go on and our education of students should continue with minimal disruption.

As a further safeguard and to minimise disruption, RMSS has purchased the hardware and software for live streaming of all lessons so that lessons can continue in students’ homes in the event of school closures.

While we hope the situation will not worsen to require closure of schools, RMSS has nevertheless invested effort & resources so that all lessons can continue at the usual times conducted by the usual tutors via live streaming should the need arise.

We are currently testing the live streaming of lessons and will update all parents and students in due course.

Meanwhile, we urge one and all to adopt good hygiene practices and to excuse oneself from lessons should one feel unwell or experience flu symptoms.

 


 

Singapore Authorities have now imposed a 14-day Leave Of Absence (LOA) for students & Teachers returning from China.

Likewise, with effect from today, Monday - 27 Jan 2020, students who have travelled to China during the last 14 days are NOT to attend classes at RMSS till & including 9 Feb 2020. This is so that students can stay at home & minimise close contact with others.

Meanwhile, RMSS will implement a temperature check on all students, tutors and staff of RMSS and persons found to have temperature exceeding or equals to 38 deg celcius will be asked to leave the tuition centre to go home.

AN ACHIEVEMENT TO BE CELEBRATED BY STUDENTS, PARENTS & TUTORS OF RMSS !

13 STUDENTS TOP IN SCHOOL.

65 STUDENTS TOP IN CLASS

144 STUDENTS TOP 5 IN CLASS

 

 

 

 

SOME of his students say they hear his voice in their heads while they do their exam questions, as if explaining how to tackle the problems. When he hears those comments, Mr Raymond Loh knows he and his teachers have done their job well.

Mr Loh, 44, founder and managing director of Raymond’s Math Studio (RMS), said: “The RMS approach is quite different in that we provide, not tuition, but a holistic learning experience. It may sound cliche but it has proven to work.

“We assume the student did not attend lessons in school and teach the subject from square-one, finishing the subject way ahead of what is taught in schools. We then embark on an intensive revision and exam-practice regime right up to the eve of the exam.

‘With this method, I can safely say that both our students and teachers have done the needful in preparing the student as best as we can.”

Mr Loh said that he is blessed with two gifts, a gift in teaching and the ability to spot people gifted to teach and blessed with the passion to put the students’ well being as a top priority.

The search is not easy but fulfilling.

He said: “I look for people who have the gift of teaching, and expect them to work hard for the students’ futures. Technical skills can be taught but one either has or does not have the gift of teaching.

“I ask potential teachers to teach students for a month for free, so as to be able to assess their ability and motivation before hiring them.

“Our top three instructors have no formal training from the Ministry of Education or National Institute of Education, but they love what they do.”

As a result RMS has effective and committed teachers who are not only closely bonded with each student, but have struck close partnerships with parents by virtue of the trust gained.

Many students and parents remain in constant contact with Mr Loh years after they had left RMS.

This is perhaps testimony to what Mr Loh claimed to be providing a holistic learning experience.

Mr Loh said: “I teach more than the subject and believe in capacity building of each student. I believe attitude and character building are as important, if not more important, than understanding the subject well.

“My teachers and I are looked upon as both teachers and mentor. We prepare them for life’s journey, make and use our own materials and use real-life examples, like CPF contributions, in our lessons.”

A former student, Miss Phoebe Ng, said in an email to Mr Loh: “Thank you for being such a fantastic tutor (beyond the classroom) that I will never ever forget in my life.

“Ever since I joined RMS, my passion for math came back... Thank you so much, this gratitude I have for you is just beyond words.”

One of Mr Loh’s career highlights is when he and his teachers see how the students have changed after attending RMS.

He said: “When a student is remarkably transformed, the elation of the student and parents more than make up for the loss of sleep and angst suffered by my teachers and I.”

Behind the scenes, something which Mr Loh firmly believes in, is the need to train and motivate his teachers, constantly.

He said: “I sit-in to observe my teachers in action and devote a great deal of time to coach them on a weekly basis. Apart from updating the lesson and imparting to them the softer-skills, the two-way feedback results in evolving the ‘X-factor’ which has now become the hallmark of Raymond’s Math Studio.”

For RMS, it is always work-in-progress and rightly so because the education landscape is ever-changing.

Mr Loh’s parting shot was: “I take comfort in having planted the seeds and take pride in that the yearly harvests are shared by my students, parents, my teachers and my staff who had made Raymond’s Math Studio what it is today.”

Mr Chin Jin Cheng graduated from NUS Law in 2013. He won 2012 NUS advocacy cup 2012 organized by the NUS Mooting and Debating Club (MDC) and supported by Drew and Napier LLC,

An alumni of RMSS (Class 08), Mr Chin presented himself as a good role model to the RMSS students.

Excerpts from The Straits Time article published on 20 August 2011 about Mr Chin winning the inaugural Attorney-General's cup,

"...Moots are simulations of real-life cases where participants present submissions to a court of appeal. Both universities fielded teams of eight. Three rounds of one-on-one face-offs whittled the mooters down to the final two - SMU's Ms Geradine Yeong and NUS's Mr Chin Jincheng, both 20.

A point system was used to determine the winning team. And after last night's moot, the decider came to a written submission from Mr Chin, who also took home the top prize of $1,000. He said: "I learnt a lot and the competition definitely helped to generate interest in the practice of criminal law."

TKGS student Cherie Lim is the youngest candidate vying to be the first Singaporean to fly into space. She is among 26 other people.

According to The Straits Times, one of the 26 will be chosen by April next year to be launched into the atmosphere on National Day, Aug 9, 2015 -- Singapore's 50th birthday.

They were whittled down from a list of 126. The 26 comprises of 22 men and 4 women.

Other candidates include a former soldier who has climbed Mount Everest and Singapore Airlines (SIA) pilots, two Nanyang Technological University (NTU) undergraduates and a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in the United States.

The project by Science Centre Board, the Singapore Space and Technology Association, and IN.Genius (a local firm focusing on high-tech energy solutions) is privately funded and has not received backing from the Government, though organisers hope to secure this. The vessel will be a helium stratospheric balloon.

Cherie's parents are supportive of her. A space and rocket enthusiast, the 15-year-old student strives to be fearless despite her youth.

The 26 will be put through advanced confidence courses, deep diving, para-jumping and a helium balloon pilot course over the next year - with weaker candidates weeded out along the way.

IN.Genius director Lim Seng, one of seven in the selection panel, wants to look for someone not only with physical strength but also the heart to do Singapore proud.

He wants the choice to be a role model who can represent Singapore well.
