The COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing lockdown have hampered schooling as we know it.

With classes being taken online, many are finding themselves lagging behind their lessons.

This is especially daunting to those sitting for their major examinations, including Form Five students who were supposed to sit for their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination last year, but had it postponed to this year.

Bearing this in mind, civil engineering graduate turned math tutor Janahan Arumugam is holding a Maths seminar for 1,000 students this month, for no cost at all.

According to a post on Janahan's Facebook page, the first seminar for Form Four and Form Five students will be held on Jan 16, and the second one, on Jan 23. Each session will start at 10am and last for two-and-a-half hours, during which Janahan will be sharing short notes, intensive revision practices and past year practices for students attending via online platforms.

However, the attendance to the seminar is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so those intending to attend the seminar should send a WhatsApp text message to 010-2401434 for more details and registration purposes.

Speaking to Free Malaysia Today (FMT), Janahan said he was always loved maths since he was in school, and it was his true calling to end up coaching others on the subject. He has been a math tutor for the last six years.

"Even the most complicated question in maths definitely has a solution.

"Akin to that, for every problem that you face in life, there has got to be a solution in the end," he told the portal.

Apart from having helped thousands of students solve complex math problems over the years, Janahan has even published his own Mathematics revision book!

So if you are interested in attending the seminar, or have a child who could benefit from attending the session, send a WhatsApp text message to 010-2401434 without further ado.
