Mathematics remains a critical core in the A Level syllabus in Singapore and is essential in many fields, including medicine, natural science, finance, engineering, and the social sciences. In fact, applied mathematics has led to entirely new disciplines, such as statistics and game theory.

Between 2013 and 2017, he has tutored many JC students and helped them achieve better grades in A Level Maths. 96% of those students achieved A’s and B’s in their GCE A-level Mathematics examination.

His students have commented that they found his class engaging and interesting.
Testimonials from Students
Espen is a fantastic teacher. During my time with him, he taught me how to break down complex questions into smaller ones so that it would be easier for me to tackle it as a whole. He instilled into me a direct approach towards problem solving that is not only quick and efficient, but also simple to use. He is observant and never overlooks anything, and is always there to ensure that you understand everything first before attempting to take on any problems. Tristen Tjokro, Victoria Junior College
Very dedicated teacher, always asks us to clarify our doubts with him anytime. Makes lessons more interesting by chatting with us. Thanks you for helping me improve my maths. Very knowledgeable about the subject and very patient without questions. Has faith in his student’s ability and always encourages us. Thank you Mr Lim! Della Mu, Nanyang Junior College
Mr Lim is a very dedicated, patient and supportive teacher. One aspect that I am very grateful for is his thoroughness in preparing practice questions regularly to ensure that I grasp concepts in detail. His resources have certainly prepared me for all my school examinations as they were tougher and more thought provoking. I was also often amazed by Mr Lim’s ability to explain certain problems or concepts as he was able to do so in a very succinct manner. All in all, his effort has immensely contributed to my grade 7 in the final IB Examinations. Simon, ACS Independent
Espen believes all students have different learning ability and are receptive to different teaching styles depending on their individual preferences. Instead of “forcing” students to adapt to the tutor’s teaching approach, Espen customizes his teaching methodology for each student. Backed by his 18 years experience of teaching JC Mathematics, he has sharpened his ability to quickly determine the best learning method for each student and use the optimal method to teach his students. His students will see significant improvements in just 2 to 3 months of group tuition with him. For individual tuition lessons, results can be seen as fast as just 1 month.
During school term, each topic will be covered in detail over two lessons. Around 2 to 3 weeks before the examination, there will be revision lessons on the topics that will be tested. Towards the end of each tuition class, time will be allocated to each student for consultation. Students are encouraged to bring their own questions that they have difficulty with. Given how Espen is able to make complex concepts simple and easy to understand, students usually find that they learn more in the two hours of weekly Maths tuition than what they learnt in the whole week at school!
He has also been interviewed by and featured in The New Paper, MyPaper, and has written a feature on Exam Study Tips that was published on The Straits Times.
