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.

Mr Koh Chee Wee and Genevieve Lim Yen Tong Opening Quotes 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!!   Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes 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 :-)  Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes 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.  Closing Quotes
