Meet our Top Rated ECONOMICS TUTOR

Mr Melvin Koh

Mr. Melvin Koh is the Principal Economics Tutor at TET Education Centre Pte. Ltd. (MOE Registration Number 3897), an education centre that focuses on helping ‘A’ Level students maximise their potential in Economics and improve their application skills to score in examinations. Most students know him as the author of the Economics Ten Year Series (available at Popular bookstores), and the bestselling ‘A’ Level Economics Guidebook which many students adopt as a study guide today.

Mr Koh considers himself successful by achieving 90% A/B in most of his classes (2016 results = average of 75% A (90% A/B) for RI/HCI students and 85% A/B for other JCs). Mr Koh does not buy medals through paid media features but earns his battle scars. Discerning parents and students tend to seek out Mr Koh based on the quality of his (i) published works; (ii) achievements in Economics;  and (iii) his outstanding track record and collection of student testimonials. Students are always welcome to experience the difference with a trial class.

A Proven Framework for Results

(A Level Economics)

Mr Koh places a heavy emphasis on the teaching of application skills. There are three parts to his lessons which can be understood through a CAM framework – (1) Content; (2) Application; and (3) Methodology. Important content parts are covered as he paces students through their school curriculum. These include distilling the content into sections which students need to be extremely familiar with for essay-writing and CSQ questions. This effectively helps students “cut through the content clutter” and develop a laser focus to revision.

 

The second and most important part of his lessons is the teaching of application skills. Mr Koh reviews school and Cambridge examination questions to develop a set of parachute concepts for each chapter. These are concepts, which when opened up (like a parachute), cover a significant part of the syllabus. This also explains why they are favourites to appear in exam questions, since they assess a student’s breadth and depth of knowledge. Along with this, he has a SCEED approach to help students score in case study questions, and a framework to guide essay writing to secure L3 marks. 

 

To augment the above, Mr Koh has developed specific methodologies in the form of essay structures (x9) and content frameworks (x8) to help students save time in planning work during exams. The three phases complement one another to deliver a powerful impact on a student’s performance. However, even with the best form of education, diligence remains a great teacher. As such, Mr Koh ensures that there is never a dull day in his lessons in order to stimulate students’ interest in the subject.

TESTIMONIALS

Winnie Soh Hyun
My learning experience with Melvin was incredible and very enjoyable. Melvin even replied every message I sent him about Economics!
Alex Loh
Melvin has not only helped me to improve my economics grade but also made me see economics in a totally different light.<br /> Students under his tutelage will soon find themselves destroying economics exams.

Melvin's ``parachute concepts`` approach was useful in preparing for the exams as it was a very simple, organised, and systematic approach
