Mr Koh saw me through A level chemistry at RJC and he is one of the most dedicated teachers i’ve known. He stresses on ‘getting the basic concepts /big picture’ because he believes that once we have the concepts at our finger tips, we will be able to tackle any exam question. Thereafter, he will expose us to a variety of questions and teach us strategies to approach the question in an exam smart manner.
Mr koh will not dismiss questions raised by his students as ‘irrelevant’ or ‘too silly’. Through these questions, he is quick to detect misunderstandings that the student may unknowingly have. Because of his approachability and patience, students dare to clarify doubts and hence gain a better understanding in the subject. I remembered how Mr Koh took a personal interest in every student’s progress. He ensures that no student is left behind by organizing small group tutorials to meet the needs of each student. Such a teacher who goes beyond his call of duty is hard to find these days.
Having him as my chemistry tutor is one of the greatest blessings in my JC days. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is struggling with basic chemistry and those seeking to understand higher level chemistry concepts!
