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 familiar with for essay-writing and CSQ questions. Mr Koh’s A Level economics tuition effectively helps students “cut through the clutter” and develop a laser focus to revision.

The second and most important part of his economics tuition classes 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 methodologies in the form of essay structures (x9) and content frameworks (x8) to help students save time in planning during exams. The three phases complement one another to deliver a powerful impact on a student’s performance. However, even with the best education, diligence remains a great teacher. As such, Mr Koh ensures that there is never a dull day in his lessons to stimulate students’ interest in Economics.

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
