Mr Koh Chee Wee graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) with a Bachelor of Social Sciences (Economics) with Second Class Honours (Upper Division). His passion for teaching was ignited by his Junior College teacher who always went the extra mile to make classes interesting and engaging. It left a significant impact on Mr Koh who firmly believes that a classroom is not only where teaching takes place but more importantly students’ learning is the top priority.
This experience had a strong influence in shaping Mr Koh’s career choice. He decided to become a teacher during his junior college days to make a difference in the lives of students. Mr Koh firmly believes the important role a teacher plays in his students’ lives. This role goes beyond delivery of content; it is about educating the whole individual. Mr Koh’s own experience during his student days as well as his teaching stint in local schools has allowed him to understand the challenges that students face in Singapore’s junior college system and relate to their emotional needs. It has given him a competitive edge in motivating his students to strive for the best in their studies as well as personal life.
Upon graduation from NUS, Mr Koh joined Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC) as a contract teacher for a year before going to National Institute of Education (NIE) for his teacher’s training. Even as a new untrained teacher, he received positive feedback about his patient teaching style that not only enhance understanding but also creates a secure environment where his students are open and forthcoming with questions.
After graduating from NIE with a Diploma in Education (Merit), Mr Koh joined Dunman High School (DHS) where he was instrumental in developing the instructional programme for the Economics unit at the newly established Senior High section. He was appointed as the coordinator for the Year 5 Economics team to oversee the teaching and learning of Economics after being in the service for just one and a half years. In 2011, he was also appointed as the Cooperating Teacher to provide guidance and supervision for 2 NIE trainee teachers doing their practicum in DHS.
Mr Koh is an avid user of ICT in his teaching to enhance students’ learning. In his first year of teaching at DHS, Mr Koh was awarded the Most Innovative Teaching Award which recognised his effort in coming up with innovative teaching methods to enrich his students’ learning experience.
Since 2011, Mr Koh has joined Learners’ Lodge Education Centre as a full-time staff, serving as Education Specialist, teaching Economics classes at both JC 1 and JC 2 levels.
Having been to many econs tuitions over the course of my two years in JC, I can confidently say that Mr Koh Chee Wee is one of the best, if not the best econs tutor in Singapore.
The vast knowledge he has about economics is unmatched, his notes are always concise and accurate, and he always manages to provide high-value lessons through his structured lesson plans and detailed explanations.
As if that was not good enough already, he goes one step further by always answering my barrage of questions after lessons and was even willing to mark our written essays for us.
These are the actions of someone who is dedicated and truly cares for his students, and I am really grateful to have met a tutor as amazing as you. Thank you Mr Koh!
Chan Jin Kai, Dunman High School (2021)
Thank you so much mr koh che wee for always being there 24/7 and for putting in sooo much extra effort in reviewing our test papers and by issuing extra practises. it really seemed as though you were taking the examinations with us, with the amount of work you put in, and i am extremely grateful to you for that. your dedication truly inspired me to work even harder to achieve my desired results and i truly respect and thank you. i’ll never forget the way you confidently said to write a live essay with us when we doubted our abilities to write as much as we needed to. once again, thank you mr koh for saving my grades, econs cld NEVER be the same without you! :)
Yi Xian, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
mr koh chee wee’s passionate teaching and patience helped me to understand econs concepts much better than i was able to in school. his explanations are clear and he is always helpful to clarify any doubts we have. he even allowed us to consult him after class and i think that’s what makes mr koh shine as a teacher. thank you mr koh!
Hazel Yew Jintong, Nanyang Junior College (2021)
I would like to thank Mr Koh Chee Wee for gearing me up during my A-Levels Economics journey. Before attending his lessons, I found it difficult to study for the subject. Fortunately, he was willing to take me in right before my preliminaries and he equipped me with the necessary skills and resources that eventually led me to achieve good results in my A-Levels. Mr Koh is a very intentional teacher who often goes the extra mile for his students. His resources are very comprehensive and the way he conducts his lessons makes Economics an enjoyable subject. Thank you Mr Koh, I could never have achieved my A without your guidance and support.
Lynette Yeow, Dunman High School (2021)
Thanks Mr Koh for guiding me in Economics for the past year! It certainly has not been easy for both of us but we managed to pull up my grade and I am very grateful for that! Thanks!
Damien Kang Jun Heng, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
Thank You Mr Koh Chee Wee for never giving up on me since day one. Ever since i joined Learner’s Lodge at the beginning of the year, you never failed to keep encouraging me and building up my confidence in studying economics. Even though the many changes from online to offline lessons, your contagious energy and passion for teaching your students really spurred me on to continue persevering in my studies as well. Thank you for believing in me and I hope that you will continue to inspire many more just as how you have done for me.
Joash Cheng, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
I made the decision to join Learners’ Lodge after taking my first Economics test in JC1; I had found myself completely dumbfounded by the syllabus, understanding close to nothing about the subject. Mr Koh Chee Wee allowed me to comprehend concepts in a way that I would have never been able to comprehend on my own. He was relentlessly patient and incredibly dedicated and has indubitably contributed tremendously to my improvement in the subject of Economics. Thank you Mr Koh!
Zachary Leong Hon Qhai, Dunman High School (2021)
Mr Koh Chee Wee’s classes brought economics to life for me. The extensive range of real-life examples shared, ample resources offered and individual attention provided both during and after each class made for a highly enriching learning experience. His passion for helping his students to grasp the subject is particularly evident in how he goes out of his way to provide consultations and answer our queries. Thanks Mr Koh!
Qi Yang Boo, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
Thanks Mr Koh Chee Wee for the last 2 years! Each lesson every Friday night has been a blast with you. Learning new economics concepts and participating in class discussions has really helped me grow so much as a person. What has always struck me is how you are willing to go the extra mile for your students. Whether it be staying back till 10pm+ to clarify any questions we have, to answering our last-minute Whatsapp questions thoroughly and clearly, one day before our exams, to scheduling free one-on-one consultations for us or helping us to mark all those extra essays while providing thorough comments, I am really thankful for how you have helped me throughout my A level journey.
I always manage to learn so much from your lessons. What I especially like is how when we suggest a response to an essay question, you are able to take our response, make it more precise and inject economic reasoning. This (1) helps me in answering the question during exams, without teachers complaining that it sounds like a GP essay, and perhaps even more importantly (2) helps me modify my thought process, allowing me to integrate the economic concepts into my thinking framework, and think with more clarity and precision.
Your encouraging class participation has also made me infinitely more well-versed in Econs concepts and thinking, helping me to practice thinking quickly and under pressure, which helps in examination situations. While some might find class participation daunting, I think the way you encourage class participation — always paying attention to what we say, whether soft or loud, whether illogical or logical and how you never scold us for wrong answers, makes class participation much more natural and fun for introverted students like me.
Your level of understanding of the H2 Econs syllabus is also really insane, and how you can challenge the factuality of what we gloss over in our notes, or how you can pull out answers to essay questions from random topics we suggest, or how you know which schools want what formats of answering never fail to amaze.
Lastly, thank you for taking the time to bond with us. Eating supper with us, making small talk with us during breaks, and after lessons, has made me really grateful that I have gotten to meet you as a teacher. Looking forward to the upcoming lunch!
So thank you so much for the last 2 years. I’ve managed to learn so much from you while looking forward to each and every class. Hope we keep in touch!
Liew Ken Yu, Dunman High School (2021)
Mr Koh Chee Wee is always willing to give us free extra lessons at the expense of his own time and he is very dedicated to teaching his students. He provides resources that are very concise and straight to the point, his lessons are very well-paced and he will always be more than willing to answer any enquiries we have. Thank you Mr Koh for being one of the best teachers I have ever met, definitely better than my school teachers. only joined in j2 but ever since then i have been acing economics and was always confident in econs. JOIN MR KOH’s LESSONS NOW AND YOU WON’T REGRET :))))) he is also very funny so your lessons are going to be very memorable!
Zoe Chan, Nanyang Junior College (2021)
Mr Koh Chee Wee, thank you so much for helping me with econs and with my questions. I seriously could not have done it without your guidance. Your lessons cover all the bases and the way you structure your lessons are very neat. Thank you so much!
Ng Shi Ting, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
A very big thank you to Mr Koh Chee Wee who helped push my Econs grade from an E at promos to an A at A levels!!! Econs used to be my most hated subject, but Mr Koh’s fun and engaging lessons ignited my interest in it and motivated me to study much harder for As!
Benecia Chai, Dunman High School (2021)
Hi Mr Koh Chee Wee, thank you for being so patient in your teaching of econs and for making sure that we are well-prepared for our tests and exams! It must have been very tiring to have to mark all the extra essays and answer all the questions that all your classes would have, so I am very grateful for your teaching and I also admire your dedication very much. Thank you for helping me to do my best in econs, especially with the revision sessions and consistent practice, and also for always reminding us to be more motivated in our studies. I’m sure other students will also benefit from your teaching and similarly do well in econs too!
Zheng Zhixin, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
Thank you Mr. Koh Chee Wee for teaching me jc econs!! i really appreciate your continuous support, even marking our many essays near As, and providing us with helpful feedback for improvement. thank you also for explaining concepts to us patiently and answering our questions outside of class :)
Jia Rong Poon, Dunman High School (2021)
Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee for being so knowledgeable about econs and patient to us. Your lessons were engaging and enlightening, allowing us to learn something new every time. Throughout my time here, I had improved my econs from E during promos to A eventually.
Zhu Qixuan, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
Hi Mr Koh Chee Wee! Thanks for always going the extra mile to make sure that I understand certain concepts, whether how confusing or out-of-syllabus they may be. Although I may not be the most consistent or well-performing student, I’m really thankful for the encouragement and advice you gave to me especially in the months leading to A-levels and this really helped me to not only remember concepts for the sake of exams, but also recognise and understand how they apply in my daily life!
Keith Shen Yu Chen, Dunman High School (2021)
Hi Mr Koh Chee Wee! I just want to say that I am very grateful for your help in this journey! I appreciate all the encouragement throughout this process! I am glad to have received help from you because, without you, I do not think that I will have a more solid foundation in economics:) I enjoy the classes very much and always thought they gave me multiple ideas and tips on how to improve my skills. I am honestly very surprised to be blessed with an A. We both worked hard! Thank you:)))))
Zhang Yue, Dunman High School (2021)
Two years of attending Mr Koh Chee Wee’s economics classes have been nothing short of amazing. His friendly teaching style allows him to quickly form a rapport with his students which thus facilitates engagement in the classroom. More importantly, Mr Koh’s notes are meticulously designed in a way that makes concepts easy to understand and the model essays provided gives us a better idea of how to formulate our answers. He often goes out of his way to help us outside of the classroom whether be it by answering our questions on WhatsApp or marking additional essays nearing the exam period. Having attended his classes for nearly two years, I can see how my economics grades have gradually improved and I have thoroughly enjoyed econs lessons despite not liking the subject. Thank you Mr Koh!!
Caryn Quek Wenjun, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
Hi Mr Koh Chee Wee, I think our results alone speak to just how much you’ve done for our economics learning, but here’s my two cents! Your lessons are always well-planned and executed and I find myself learning so much and enjoying the process of it. The way you explain concepts also makes this daunting subject much more digestible; your notes and teachings have become my go-to economics resources. On top of that, you’re always so patient with us, answering our barrage of questions not only after lessons but also every other day of the week. Keep up with the great lessons Mr Koh! I’m really grateful to have you as our teacher :)
Ang Qiwen, Dunman High School (2021)
Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee for your insightful Economics lessons! I truly enjoyed them!
Though I only joined in the months before A-Levels, my skills and understanding of Econs quickly improved compared to before joining (prior to joining, I was frequently confused and unsure about how to approach Econs questions & concepts).
I found Mr Koh’s class to be an enjoyable learning environment due to his enthusiasm and patience. He readily clarifies any doubts we have (especially when going through challenging Econs questions) and I feel this indirectly encourages us to ask any questions we have, which I believe definitely aided my learning.
Achieved an A, but I am more grateful that I learnt to appreciate and understand Econs. Mr Koh is a superb teacher who is filled with immense passion – thank you very much, Mr Koh!
Luo Hongxun, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
Hi Mr Koh Chee Wee! Thank you so much for guiding us and teaching us economics over the last 2 years. Your lessons were always well-planned and effectively made the subject interesting for us :) All the notes you have provided us with were really detailed and well elaborated, and the ways in which you explained concepts never fails to pique my interest. I also appreciate the fact that you took the time out of your busy schedule to help us mark our extra essays and even provided us with consultation when we needed it. Without you, I wouldn’t have been able to score in economics, and neither would I have liked the subject in the first place. Thank you Mr Koh, and I hope that you will continue inspiring many more batches to come :”)
Wilbur Chia Jit Yeh, Hwa Chong Institution (2021)
Dear Mr Koh Chee Wee,
thank you for being the most patient and genuine tutor I’ve had thus far! from giving 1-1 consults, extra lessons leading up to As and to entertaining an inflow of texts and questions from your students, you’ve always gone the extra mile for us :) you’ve really been of great help, thank you for helping us realise our potential to conquer As with greater confidence. couldn’t have done it without your help!!! you’ve taught my cousin and my sister and now me, needless to say, my cousin and sister were really right when they said joining your lessons would be of great help :)
Lucy, Raffles Institution (2021)
Hi Mr Koh Chee Wee! Your constant support and guidance throughout my 2 years in JC really pushed me to do my best in working towards my A Level goal! I am really appreciative of your easy going personality that makes lessons comfortable and easy to ask questions. Thank you so much for all your help! :-)
Charlotte Chung Hui, Dunman High School (2021)
Mr Koh Chee Wee really helped me to grasp methods as to how I should approach questions via repeating the important keywords and methods of writing every lesson. Not only is he a passionate teacher, he is also a very caring one who looks out for his students’ wellbeing. His lessons have made a huge impact in my learning and I am very very grateful. Thank you again Mr Koh!!☺️
Tan Jeng Qian, Hwa Chong Institution (2020)
Mr Koh Chee Wee helped me find an interest in econs , a subject I found confusing in J1. He ensured we understood our basics and was very eager to give us extra help whenever we needed it. He is patient in explaining and ensures everyone in on track.
Audrey Trinity Mak Shao Wei, Catholic Junior College (2020)
Dear Mr Koh,
Thank you for all that you have done for us. Going above and beyond with the extra lessons and messages, I know that you will continue to provide the best lessons for your students in the future. Even though Covid has neutered some of the natural class dynamic, your ability to keep us somewhat engaged even over the internet is a skill that is hard to come by. I wish you all the best for your future endeavours. Thank you for the 2 years.
Lei Sihan Richard, Eunoia Junior College (2020)
Mr Koh Chee Wee is a very jovial and easy-going tutor, who will not hesitate to answer questions posed by his students. His lessons are very enjoyable and engaging, and I was able to effectively take away important content from his lessons. He knows when to be serious and actively ensures we understand what is being taught. Even during the circuit breaker when lessons moved online, he was willing to stay back after lessons to clarify our doubts. Thanks to Mr Koh, my Economics grade jumped from U in the JC2 Block tests to A in the A level examinations. Thank you Mr Koh!.
Loo Jia Xuan, Nanyang Junior College (2020)
In J1, I constantly scored an S for Econs and strongly disliked the subject. I dreaded the idea of coming to tuition for econs and believed that nothing I did would help me improve. However, Mr Koh Chee Wee quickly changed my opinion of that. He was an extremely encouraging teacher and would be patient in explaining concepts, also making sure to inject fun into his classes so that it was never boring. He would always take his time to explain to me what went wrong and what I could do to improve and would be prompt in responding to questions I had or extra material I wanted him to look through. I found myself looking forward to attending his classes, and went home with a deeper understanding of concepts that were once foreign to me. He also managed to help me catch up on J1 concepts that I was far behind on, and also definitely believed in me more than I did myself, considering how I was decently surprised by the grade I managed to attain for A Levels! I’m extremely grateful to have had Mr Koh as my econs teacher, and really don’t think I would have been able to see such a big improvement in my econs grade otherwise. He is definitely one of the best and most caring teachers I’ve ever had, and I believe that any student who comes under his care would be very fortunate. Thank you Mr Koh! :)
Tatum Cheah Xin Yu, Hwa Chong Institution (2020)
I am really grateful to have attended lessons from Mr Koh Chee Wee! He really is a great teacher, allowing his students to fully grasp economic concepts before moving on to the next. With economics being quite a new and foreign subject upon entering JC, he made sure to apply it in terms of real-life contexts, which really strengthened my foundation. His teaching was pivotal in my economics grades as I improved significantly from JC 1 to JC 2. Aside from lesson time, Mr Koh still made the effort to mark my essays that I sent in every week, giving me valuable feedback and comments to help me improve. I really am grateful to Mr Koh for all the time he made for me! Eventually, I made a big jump in my grades and achieved an A during the A levels, all thanks to Mr Koh! Thank you once again :”
Vicky Qu, Nanyang Junior College (2020)
Mr koh chee wee has helped me a lot in my journey of improving my economics grade from a D to an A grade for A levels. He always puts in extra effort to answer our questions even after class which ends very late. He is always patient with us and treats ur kindly, making us look forward to each and every lesson. THANK YOU MR KOH
Egan Shee Yu Jun, Hwa Chong Institution (2020)
Whenever I think of Mr Koh Chee Wee, I think of a passionate educator that truly understands both the minds of students and the requirements of the economics syllabus. With his many years of experience, Mr Koh is able to effectively translate complex concepts of the economics syllabus into easily digestible information that are very applicable for the examinations.
Mr Koh’s lessons are highly productive filled with many elements of fun. He imparts us with many critical techniques and skills that are constantly applied in every question. He is extremely patient in guiding us in our learning and is always open to our unlimited questions such that we as students are able to comfortably grasp concepts regardless of our learning paces and abilities. Mr Koh puts in the extra effort to create additional notes, provide consultations and extra classes so as to maximise the learning of his students too.
Apart from academics, Mr Koh genuinely cares for the welfare of his students. He watches over all his students’ mental and physical well being with great concern. Having the privilege of being one of his students has not only ignited my passion for economics, but also taught me the importance of our human character.
Mr Koh has indubitably impacted the lives of all his students. The A level examinations is no simple task. It is a draining marathon that Mr Koh has guided so many students through. He is the pillar of strength for us to persevere on. He gives us hope when we are disheartened by setbacks. He will always believe in us even when we have lost faith in ourselves. Gratitude is all I have for this astounding educator. Thank you Mr Koh.
Marcus Yeo Xian Sheng, Hwa Chong Institution (2020)
Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee for the highly conducive and productive lessons! The detailed run through of Economics essay outlines while still actively engaging with our queries was extremely beneficial in helping me internalise complex concepts and familiarising me with writing comprehensive essays, I really appreciate the amount of effort put into making sure every lesson is a good one, and relevant to our needs. Thank you for your tireless guidance, making Economics a genuinely fun subject to study!!
Joey Zhang, Hwa Chong Institution (2020)
thank u Mr Koh Chee Wee for tutoring me for econs !! lessons were always fun yet enriching. thank you for teaching in a clear manner & explaining concepts in such an organized manner, which makes it so much easier for me to understand. & thank u for taking time out of ur schedule to go through our exam scripts with us to help us individually work on our own studying methods for econs, etc. you’ve been a great teacher hehe thank u for helping me sm w econs :D
Ashley Ang, Victoria Junior College (2020)
Mr Koh is a very engaging and knowledgeable teacher. Before attending his lessons, I was lost on how to answer and structure my essays and CSQs. I appreciated how he went through every single essay in detail and explained how to structure it. Besides, he ensured that the class was updated with real-life examples which is extremely useful in essays. Most importantly, he is a very passionate and dedicated teacher who goes all out to help his students. I would really like to thank him for conducting additional classes before Alevels, constantly answering my queries, and marking all my extra essays. All in all, his enjoyable and productive lessons allowed me to discover my passion for economics and eventually helped me to attain an A for A levels. Thank you so much Mr Koh Chee Wee.
Wendy Liang Nuo, Raffles Institution (2020)
Mr Koh is an engaging and patient teacher who has made learning economics enjoyable. The comprehensive essay outlines and mind-maps have certainly helped me to grasp a better understanding of economic concepts. Furthermore, Mr Koh is ever-willing to address any questions we have after class. Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee!
Valerie Cheong, Hwa Chong Institution (2020)
Dear mr koh chee wee,
Initially, when i joined, the pressure was real as i joined merely a few months before As and have not been putting in sufficient effort in econs as i neglected my H1 subjects. However, as it was revision phase, this really gave me the drive to start doing practice papers and learning the key phrases in scoring for econs. It was rather daunting for me as I felt rather behind my peers in the same class but Mr Koh always made me feel welcomed and very warmly answers my econs questions! Owing to this, I started to place more effort into this subject and constantly do practice papers not only for tuition but also additional ones for my school teacher to mark. Mr Koh was also really very friendly and tries to crack jokes in between lessons which i find it very enjoyable. Plus, the vibes he gives off (to me at least) felt more of a friend than a teacher which made me very comfortable during lesson and he feels very similar to my PW teacher (the vibes/style/personality) so I always feel as if I am in PW lesson which made econs less stressful for me ! However, there was still a significant amount of stress but i am glad for it for it pushes me to improve every lesson; to be better than before. I am super grateful for Mr Koh’s support and thankful that i joined his H1 econs lessons :)
Irvina Chen Jiayi, Anderson Serangoon Junior College (2020)
Mr Koh Chee Wee is a phenomenal teacher that’s devoted to his student’s success. He has no complains about students messaging him for after-class questions and even give us free consults. Mr Koh understands not only the syllabus but also the preferences of Cambridge assessors very well. Aside from in-depth and concise notes, he also provide for us an arsenal of important tips to make sure we get not only the content marks, but also the brownie points for our econs. Mr Koh never lost faith in his students and proactively encouraged us even when our results are not very good. With Mr Koh’s consistent help, my econs jumped from an S in J1 to an A in A-levels. Thank you Mr Koh for all your help!
Zhang Yulun, Hwa Chong Institution (2020)
Initially I had trouble with grasping the econs concepts and found econs more towards a chore. However through Mr Koh Chee Wee’s lesson I have improved from a E in my first year to a B in Alevel . I am very fond of his teaching methods and he never fails to answer any questions !
He’s friendly and approachable!
Thank you very much Mr Koh! :)
Gwyneth lim Shu Qin, Millennia Institute (2020)
Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee for teaching me Econs. I really enjoyed the interesting ways you used to teach us, making me look forward to going for your lessons. Even though most lessons are held online, you made it as fun and interesting as possible! I also really like your acronyms and anecdotes that you shared with us. All of these made me really liked Econs. Thank you so much!
Guo Anxiang, Jurong Pioneer Junior College (2020)
Mr Koh Chee Wee has really helped me understand complex economic concepts in an easier way and he is always willing to answer my doubts. He always ensures that we have fully understood the concepts and he is very patient when explaining. Thank you Mr Koh for helping me improve my economics!
Kaushiki Verma, Jurong Pioneer Junior College (2020)
Mr Koh Chee Wee is a very kind and helpful teacher who is willing to go the extra mile for his students. Before coming to Learners Lodge, I was struggling with econs in sch and flunked my end of year exams. I had very little knowledge of the subject. Mr Koh was very patient with me and constantly clarified my doubts both inside and outside class time. With Mr Koh’s help, I was able to push my econs grade from a low U to an A. thank you Mr Koh!
Teo Chen Rei Rayson, Nanyang Junior College (2019)
I’m really thankful for Mr Koh Chee Wee’s continuous guidance, support and help throughout this journey and his effort to source for materials to help us understand and structure our answers better!! He would also readily provide detailed feedback whenever we submit work for him to mark & notice the common mistakes that the class or individual students would make & then provide useful advice. Never would I have thought that I could go from a U in Econs to attaining distinction in As so I’m really grateful to Mr Koh for helping me obtain a grade that I once thought was impossible!!
Genevieve Lim Yen Tong, Victoria Junior College (2019)
Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee for always attending to every student’s needs, and going to extra mile, patiently answering all of our questions. I could always contact him to clarify concepts, even outside of lesson time, and that helped me a lot as a student who was afraid to speak up in school. Thank you Mr Koh for helping me pull my grades up!
Liu Wei Yi, Hwa Chong Institution (2019)
Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee for your patient guidance and support for us on this journey! Although it has only been one year since I have joined the class, I have felt more confident in my ability to apply and analyse accordingly; because I know that my queries and doubts will be addressed fully. Your quiet confidence in each and every one of us to succeed is truly motivational!
Isabel Leong Yu Wen, Hwa Chong Institution (2019)
Thank you, Mr Koh Chee Wee, for helping me through the arduous journey of A-Levels! In prelim, I was still failing my Econs essay and yet I am extremely touched to get A for Econs in A Levels. Thank you, Mr Koh, for always staying back and motivating me even after lessons in late night. I am so honoured to have met you as a teacher.
Winnis Lee Xin Rong, River Valley High School (2019)
Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee for your guidance and patience throughout these few months. His endless motivation and crazy good essays and materials allowed me to grasp the subject a lot better than I used to. Even when I didn’t do too well in my school exams, he still offered to help with extra consultations before and after class. I’m immensely grateful for the support I got from Mr Koh :-)
Tara Toh, Victoria Junior College (2019)
Econs was one of my worst subjects especially from j1 since we didn’t have any background knowledge from secondary school. I only went through the motion in school and usually sleep in lectures not knowing or understanding anything. However, ever since being recommended to join learners lodge Econs and to be taught by Mr Koh Chee Wee, I started to understand more about econs. With the guidance of Mr Koh, I started to be more interested in Econs and more responsible for my learning. Mr Koh even went to the extent of allowing us to come early for lessons or stay back after lessons to seek consultations for any doubts we have, and during A levels he would also meet us outside for consults FOC. Although I still sleep in his lessons at times, he still ensures I learn something which I am grateful for eventually allowing me to secure an A for Econs. His lessons are truly not dull but catered specially to students individually, thus allowing us to maximise our learning. His lame jokes during lessons also help to keep me awake when feeling sleepy.
Tan Jit Young, Nanyang Junior College (2019)
Mr Koh Chee Wee was a very understanding and passionate economics teacher. He took the time and effort to help each student with whatever issues they faced in economics and was even willing to sacrifice his own personal time to aid his students. Thanks for tutoring me Mr Koh!
Daniel Toh, Hwa Chong Institution (2019)
Hi Mr Koh Chee Wee! Really appreciate all the effort you put into helping me improve my econs. Your classes made econs soo much easier to understand and your feedback really helped me improve my csq!!! Thank you for going out of your way to help me and answer all my questions. Your constant encouragement and patience really helped me through this entire journey!!! THANK YOU:’)
Isabel Chua, St Andrew’s Junior College (2019)
Without Mr Koh Chee Wee, I don’t think I would have gotten A for H2 Economics. I’m so grateful for him. He doesn’t fail to answer my questions at all. And he makes sure I understand the answer fully before he proceeds. Honestly, he is wanna of the best teachers i have ever met where he so nice and welcoming.
Pradeep Manimaran, Victoria Junior College (2019)
Mr Koh Chee Wee is a very approachable and patient teacher, always putting in so much effort in us and showering us with lots of care and concern. When I do not understand a certain concept or topic, he will try his best to make it clear and concise, making it easier for me to comprehend. He will also spend time to go through the concepts again and again until I remember and understand them. I am very lucky to have him as my teacher as there are not many teachers like him who are willing to sacrifice their personal time to help us to review our essays and answer our questions. I remember I used to not like learning economics but ever since Mr Koh taught me, learning economics became easy and enjoyable. As a result, I have developed a deeper understanding of economics and I really love learning economics as a subject.
I never expected to get an A. However, with Mr Koh Chee Wee’s never-ending support, and selflessness in his teaching, I managed to obtain it. Thank you for always being willing to stay back after class until 10+pm so as to answer my queries, and also mark my extra case studies whenever I submit it. In the dreary life of a private candidate, you were the brightest sun!
Edward Wang, Private Candidate (2019)
Thank you Mr Koh Chee Wee for guiding me in Econs so patiently. I really enjoyed your lessons as you always linked it to real life examples and showed me how Econs is applied to our everyday lives, making it more relatable to me. The fact that you always made an effort to find out about the students and not just teach really touched me. I am really grateful that you were my Econs teacher. Thank you for helping me get an A in Econs. :)
Khin Rati San, Victoria Junior College (2019)
TMr Koh Chee Wee is a remarkable tutor who strives to elucidate difficult economic concepts to his students. His lessons gave me a clearer understanding of Economics and his pleasant disposition, along with his well-structured sessions proved to be the vital confidence boost I needed for As. Thank you, Mr Koh, and do continue to inspire others through your line of work!

I used to dread learning Economics because I had always thought that it was a dry subject which involved graphs and wordy passages, which I had difficulty understanding both.
Thankfully, my parents decided to enrol me in Mr Koh’s class, where I grew to appreciate and truly enjoy what I am being taught.
Mr Koh Chee Wee’s jovial personality never fails to lighten the mood in class and make us feel energized after a long day at school, which is one of the many reasons why I enjoy going to his classes as it feels so welcoming!
Mr Koh’s lessons are very structured and are ideal for slow learners like me, as he would ensure that our foundation for the subject is strong through the usage of worksheets before moving onto case studies where we can apply the knowledge. He always encourages us to speak up in class to clear our doubts and would go around the class to check on students who seem to be struggling and correct them on the spot. Additionally, he makes his lessons interesting through the usage of analogies and videos, which has really helped me understand the concepts better!
I’m really grateful to Mr Koh as he would always try to stay back after class to answer questions which we would still have, which makes us as students feel so assured as we know that there is someone who we can turn to for help, so thank you, Mr Koh !!

Hello Mr Koh Chee Wee, thank you so much for teaching me the past 2 years and helping to answer all of my doubts regardless of how busy you were! It was very relieving knowing that you could clarify all my doubts and I’m very grateful to you for making lessons engaging as well as for taking time outside of lesson to tutor me. Thank you for helping me understand and improve in econs and your overall help that enabled me to score an A! :)
Annette Andrea Tan Yong Shi, Nanyang Junior College (2019)
Thank you, Mr Koh Chee Wee, for your guidance in Econs! I have made great improvement in Econs from prelims to A Levels with your help. the clarity and depth of content shared in lessons were extremely useful in aiding my understanding of the subject. I am very thankful to have you as my tutor :-)
Phang Zi Ying, St Andrew’s Junior College (2019)
I always had trouble in answering econs qns and I never fully understood my sch tutors no matter how much I consulted them. Only when things started to get really serious (j2) did I come for the class here and I was just surprised/worried by how much I did not know. Mr Koh Chee Wee held classes really well and structured essays in ways that made learning how to answer econs questions so accessible to me. The constant trust and faith he had in us were also very reassuring especially when I gave up on myself. I never felt confident in the subject but he helped me gain clarity of the subject which build on my ability to approach the subject more certainty. Studying was a lot less intimidating for me since he (from what I felt and see) went out of his way to make himself available both online and in real life to answer my questions. Mr Koh is a very inspirational teacher and I simply can’t imagine going through JC without his help. THANK YOU MR KOH!!
Eldora Lim Xuan Ying, Victoria Junior College (2019)
Dear Mr Koh Chee Wee,
though I joined the class late into the second year of JC leading up to the A level examinations and you are not very familiarised with me, thank you for always including me in lesson discussions and making sure that I am well caught up with the concepts taught! I appreciate your cheerful demeanour and jokes in between the lessons – they help keep me awake on a Saturday morning after a nights worth of studying 😅 With the extra help, I was able to jump from an S grade during prelims to an A during the A levels, thank you so much :D
Chai Ming Rher, River Valley High School (2019)
Mr Koh Chee has taught me the ins and outs of Economics, allowing me to fully understand the topics and links between them. He is very detailed in explanations and often gives real-life examples, allowing us to easily remember the topics. Thanks to his teachings, my Economics was able to improve from a U grade in J1 to an A in A Levels,
Ryan Chan, Hwa Chong Institution (2019)
Mr Koh Chee Wee is definitely one of the best Econs teachers I’ve ever had. Getting an A for Econs seemed almost impossible until I joined his lessons. Thank you, Mr Koh, for being such a passionate & selfless teacher! I am immensely grateful for your unwavering support, guidance & confidence in us. Not only do you willingly extend lessons late into the night to ensure that we can all clear our doubts, you also go the extra mile to mark our weekly assignments & answer all our questions even outside of lessons despite it being extra workload for you. Mr Koh is very consistent in his teaching & his techniques suited me very well. This made it much easier for me to understand & master exam skills. Thank you so much for being extremely patient with us & constantly drilling all the key concepts & skills into our brains until you are sure that we are clear of them. Every Monday night tuition lesson was surely something I looked forward to :’-) I am so grateful to have you as my teacher Mr Koh!
Lee Jia Qi, Raffles Institution (2019)
Thank you so much, Mr Koh Chee Wee! I am certain that my interest in econs has truly increased because of your lessons. There had never been a lesson of yours that I was bored of as somehow you always managed to keep the lessons interesting, relating econs with your personal stories and also other real-life examples. You also never hesitated to stay back the extra few minutes to answer any questions that the others or I had. I also really appreciate how much effort you put into making the notes you give us as concise as possible as that helped me a lot. Despite seeing how poorly I performed in econs in school exams, you still had faith in me and always gave me the assurance that I can improve and eventually do well for A levels. Thank you again, Mr Koh, for being a fun and great teacher!!!
Dear Mr Koh Chee Wee,
Thank you so much for your guidance in H2 Econs! When I first joined in J2, my understanding of Econs was severely lacking and full of concept gaps. However, your comprehensive notes and your elaboration explanations in class really helped me to catch up in Econs. Despite Econs consistently being my worst subject in school, your tuition helped me to jump from a D in school exams to an A in A-Levels! Thank you, Mr Koh!
Claudia Chin, Hwa Chong Institution (2019)
I’d be lying if I said Econs was my favourite subject because that’s SO far from the truth… but Mr Koh Chee Wee made lessons SO FUN!! Every concept that he taught was well explained and substantiated with so many easy to understand real-life examples. His dedication to every single one of his students is insane and I’m so grateful that I was granted the opportunity to be under him. Mr Koh is truly god-sent and thanks to him my E for Econs went to an A! 👍🏼
Ashley Lim, Hwa Chong Institution (2019)
Mr Koh Chee Wee was a fantastic teacher. He was firm in his teaching yet he always found time to connect with his students in a fun way. Thanks to him, I gradually improved my Econs from a constant S to B and finally received an A in A levels! Thanks, Mr Koh!
Yee Shan Ning, Hwa Chong Institution (2019)
I’d always struggled with Economics and flunked my tests and exams constantly. But Mr Koh Chee Wee made this dreaded subject interesting and made me genuinely want to work harder, not just for the grades but to deepen my understanding and knowledge. He’s always kept patient with me even though my results showed little to no improvement and encouraged me not to give up. I’ve finally managed to attain an A for my H2 Economics and I’m truly grateful for his help.
Jeremy Ng, Anglo-Chinese Junior College (2018)
Thanks Mr Koh Chee Wee for your patient guidance the past 1.5 years. I first saw econs as a pain to study but under you, i grew to enjoy learning and conquering the most challenging topics
Ethan Cheung, Hwa Chong Institution (2018)
Mr Koh Chee Wee is an extremely dedicated and motivational teacher. I’m extremely grateful for Mr Koh’s patient guidance throughout my JC2 year and he has played a huge role in helping me achieve a B in my A levels H2 Economics. During my first year in JC, Economics was an extremely dry and boring subject which I thought I could breeze through just by memorising the concepts and keywords in all my lecture books. I did really badly in all my school internal exams in JC1 with mostly S and U grades and occasionally scrapping a low E.
It was only after I joined Mr Koh’s class in JC2 when I realized the subject was really interesting and pure memory work would not be helpful in helping me ace my exams. Mr Koh would never fail to make every lesson into an interactive and entertaining lesson, making me look forward to every Econs lesson in Learners’ Lodge. He guided us through different types of essay questions and the approaches which helped me a lot in my exams and I finally knew how to apply the Economics concepts appropriately in my CSQs and essays.
Crystal Tay Xinru, Hwa Chong Institution (2018)
Hi Mr Koh Chee Wee, I would never have improved so much from the prelims to the As without your help :) your lessons made econs so much more enjoyable for me and allowed me to understand the subject more ^^ Really grateful for your dedication in paying attention to each student and helping us out individually :) Thank you :D
Shanya Leong, Jurong Junior College (2018)
I would like to thank Mr Koh Chee Wee for helping me improve so much in econs! I got an E for econs in J2 BT2 and did below average for prelims but I managed to get an A for a levels! Mr Koh’s notes really helped me to understand the techniques of writing a good econs essay!! Thank you so much Mr Koh ☺️
Tan Si Jie, Hwa Chong Institution (2018)
Economics was always a difficult subject to tackle as concepts are often complicated and multi-layered. However, Mr Koh’s interactive and engaging manner of teaching was useful in helping me grasp concepts better. His lessons taught me how to approach questions in different perspectives, making the learning more enjoyable. He is dedicated to helping his students and consistently goes the extra mile for his students. Ultimately, it was his unwavering support that helped me achieve a distinction at the A levels.
Lau Wen Jun, Jurong Junior College (2016)
Mr Koh is a very dedicated, knowledgeable and capable teacher. He can deliver the lesson very efficiently and also tries his best to make his teachings enjoyable by sharing a myriad of real-world examples which apply to our essays. All in all, he’s a very experienced teacher and I have enjoyed his lessons very much.
Chang Hin On, Jurong Junior College (2016)
Mr Koh teaches Econs in a unique way, as he combines his wealth of experience in how to tackle the ‘standard’ questions of ‘A’ Level economics together with real-world situations. As Econs is a rather ‘dry’ subject, he tries to bring in real-world examples as much as possible, and this truly helps us students in appreciating the relevance of Economics concepts. Not only does he teach us how to score for Econs, he also cultivates an interest in the subject among his students; a feat only achievable by an extraordinary teacher. Thanks, Mr Koh for being such an extraordinary teacher and always going out of your way in helping us, ensuring that all of us can follow the lesson.
Jordan Chan Jie En, Catholic Junior College (2017)
Thank you, Mr Koh, for all your effort and concern during my A-Level preparations. Your concise and structured method of teaching made econs easier to understand. Even though my final result was not that great, it was an improvement from my previous result, and I also gained a greater appreciation of the subject and may even consider to pursue it uni.
Jonathan Choong, Hwa Chong Institution (2017)
Thank you, Mr Koh, for making a difference in my Econs’ result. I improved from E to B. I appreciate all the work he put in for us. He also makes me have more interest in study Econs in the future!
Zhang Xin Yi, Jurong Junior College
Thank you for your constant guidance in the past year! Your ever-so-present attention to detail and cheerful disposition have been beneficial during our consultation sessions. All the best in your future endeavours.
Ng Shou Fong, River Valley High School
Thanks a lot for the efforts you put in every lesson!! You helped me gain confidence in econs and attain the A I have never dreamt of achieving!! You make every lesson enjoyable, easy to understand and to nag at us now and then to hand in essays etc. Stay healthy and happy!!
Lee Si Xian, Hwa Chong Institution
So blessed to have you as my economics teacher. You are always so willing to help me when I have difficulties in Economics. You take your precious time after class to guide me along with my questions and making sure I learn to the best of my ability. Thank you for helping me and being understanding as I am currently a private candidate. His dedication touches me. Thanks for everything, Mr Koh.
Tong Ming Hao
Thank you, Mr Koh, for being the best Econs teacher ever, always making us write more essays and pushing us beyond our capabilities. Your clear and precise teaching methods and notes have been the reason why I managed to do well in Econs despite having failed all the way since J1. I can never thank you enough for your guidance, patience and comments in each of my essays you marked. Thank you, Mr Koh! Couldn’t have done it without you!
Nurul Shazirah Othuman, Jurong Junior College
Before going for JC economics tuition at Learner’s Lodge, my understanding of economics was foggy at best and my essay skills were lacking. Thankfully, through lessons that maximised teacher-student interaction by capitalising on innovative technology such as the SMART board, Mr. Koh, a warm and engaging teacher, clarified many of my misconceptions about the subject. Learner’s Lodge also provided their own informative and well-organised notes that were not only beneficial for economics concepts, but also essay skills as it included essay-style explanations for graphs and common economic concepts. Always concerned for his students, He went out of his way to help us. He was always contactable via phone and email, through which we could ask him any economics question and he would answer them promptly. One could also arrange for extra consultation sessions with him. He encouraged us to do essays and case studies, which he would mark and return to us in a week’s time even though all of his students were bombarding him with multiple essays, especially close to the A-level period. His impressive dedication towards his students lasted all the way until the last day of the A-level economics paper. I am confident that I would not have done as well if it were not for all his help, and am hence extremely grateful towards him.
