At SMAAT, we offer assistance with both Junior and Senior Mathematics including Maths A, B, and C. Assessments for Mathematics revolve around three major criteria: Knowledge and Procedures (KPS); Modelling and Problem Solving (MPS); and Communication and Justification (C&J). Our tutors, being high achieving Mansfield alumni, are aware of these complex marking criteria and can provide each student with an individually tailored strategy designed to tackle each criteria so that they can maximise assignment marks and also become well prepared for exams.


SMAAT specialise in the following Science subjects: Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Science-21 and Junior Science. We assist students in understanding both core and difficult concepts learnt in class which will help tackle higher-order thinking questions in exams. We will assist in designing and modifying experiments for EEIs (Extended Experimental Investigations) and ERTs (Extended Response Task). A lot of importance will also be given in Scientific report writing and correctly structuring reports at a high standard.


English, as a subject, is often considered challenging and demanding. At SMAAT, our tutors assist students to read, plan and edit assignments and offer any necessary feedback required for them to further improve. Focus is also given on the minor details, such as grammar, punctuation, spelling and sentence structure. We understand that every student is unique and will have their own needs. We work as a team to address these needs and through this, aim to polish their abilities and make them students of high calibre.
