Mr. Koh Chee Wee

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.

Opening Quotes  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.

Opening Quotes   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!  Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes   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.    Closing Quotes
