2021 SASMO & SMKC Training

Dear parents and students interested in math competitions,

We have recently revamped our training workshops as we modelled them after our successful competitions.

We are lowering our training prices to normal tuition rates and we will donate 5% of our training revenues to offer scholarships. Plus, our certified trainers can train your child in the comfort of your home, and these students will also qualify for our scholarships.


  • At our learning centres (Goldhill Centre – Novena & Bright Centre- Telok Kurau Lor L) and home tuition: New programs offering scholarships for our learning centre and home tuition students to compete in Global Competitions (all expenses paid, package, contest fee, plus training, no airfare) for top contest winners and most improved students.
  • Plus, they can be invited to join the International Junior Honor Society (IJHS) and Young Achievers Leadership Academy (YALA) – a 5 days, 4 nights leadership camp, all expenses paid, except airfare)
  • Over 30 highly qualified trainers, including many ex-MOE teachers are working with us. They are led by Merlan Nagidulin, our Head of the Scientific Committee for all of our math competitions and Gold medalist of 2 Kazakhstan Mathematics Olympiad, International Math Olympiad (IMO) Bronze medalist in Slovenia 2006. He won a scholarship for Mathematics from NUS. He has been working with SIMCC for over 8 years and is a major contributor to our growth.
