Fees are considered above-average rates, but so are our results. Students are incentivised to join earlier with lower rates. But the main draw is that you get to work through the Content, Application and Methodology phases with Mr Koh to maximise your ability to secure an A at the end of two years.
Nonetheless, Mr Koh is committed to help all students achieve their desired grade regardless of when they enrol in his classes. Special crash courses are conducted in June to help new students catch up on Mr Koh's parachute concepts. The only hard constraint here is the number of slots available in his regular lessons.
Each lesson lasts 2 hours. Mr Koh actively asks questions and elicit comments from students during his classes, and this is impossible to do within a shorter class duration.
Fee structure is as follows:
Level Enrolment Fees
JC1 Jan-Dec $340
JC2 Jan-Jun $360
JC2 Jul onwards $450
Once registered, the fees will be locked in throughout the student's stint with us, i.e. the fees will remain the same from the point of registration until the A levels. No other administrative and material fees are charged.

What are Mr Koh's accolades? Any news features?
Mr Koh's roots in Economics started in Hwa Chong Junior College, where with the guidance of a strong teaching force, he secured straight As in all subjects, including H3 Economics (aka 'S' paper during his time).
He went on to major in Economics in the National University of Singapore under a Monetary Authority of Singapore scholarship, and graduated with a First Class Honours in Economics. His passion in the subject helped him top the entire Economics Honours cohort and secure another 12 University Awards, including 6 Dean's Lists.
To-date, along with his experience as a bank regulator, Mr Koh has conducted school Economics workshops and financial literacy classes, published papers in Economics journals, written 2 'A' Level Economics reference books, and taught countless students through weekly lessons conducted at his Coronation Plaza classroom. As he tries to maintain a balance between his dual passion for teaching and writing, only a fixed number of teaching classes are opened per year.

In a class of between 10 to 15 students, 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. Drawing on his experience as a TYS author, he 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 BCC + DDEE framework to guide essay writing to secure L3 marks. Many past students who have secured their A with Mr Koh will glady testify to the effectiveness and intuitiveness of his parachute concepts.
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.

Mr Koh has limited spending power and does not believe in splurging on newspaper features to embellish his reputation. He considers himself successful by maintaining 80% A/B in his classes (2015 results = 89% A for RI; 70% A for HCI; 76% A/B for other JCs).
Mr Koh does not buy medals but earns his battle scars. He prefers that discerning parents and students judge his credibility based on his (i) published works; (ii) achievements in Economics; and (iii) his collection of student testimonials. Students are always welcome to experience the difference with a trial class.
