Author and Principal Trainer
Suhailah is the author of the Step-by-Step Model Drawing Series. She trains tutors, teachers, parents and students in various heuristics concepts and applications, with the special focus on pupils in their critical year (PSLE). She also conducts heuristics workshops for parents and educators. Self-trained Suhailah taught primary Maths, in various streams, for more than 20 years in the 90s. During that time, she observed how today’s transformed primary Math syllabus stumped students, parents and, sometimes, even teachers.
How do you teach young students to accurately choose and sequentially apply different situational logic in solving non-routine problems? Suhailah resolved to simplify the learning and application of such (Math heuristics). Through years of research and development, Suhailah eventually established the SMART programmes. Results-oriented research has since proven the consistent effectiveness of the SMART Excel programme.
In 2012, Suhailah launched the Step-by-Step Model Drawing Series, a complete and comprehensive guide to Math heuristics for lower and upper primary students. The book serves students and parents on and beyond the SMART programmes.
