The GP Counsel provided immense support in nurturing creativity, independence and confidence in my GP improvement journey. It offered me a good diversity of information on how to approach the topics during my A level exams.
I particularly appreciated Mr Koh’s regular communication with me when I had questions outside tuition hours. The learning journey was extremely pleasant and insightful.
Thank you for the support given!

Mr Koh and Mr Ong were both meticulous tutors, always providing the most apt and targeted feedback towards student’s work submissions or feedback during class discussions. The tutors’ comments (written or verbal) were always well crafted and easy to comprehend, allowing their students to effectively and correctly improve on their current work. Unlike the sweeping and untargeted comments school teachers provide on pieces of work, Mr Koh was able to provide me numerous helpful tips to improve on my essays while maintaining the crux of my original writing style.
The pace of lessons were perfect for the dual exchange of information between tutors and students. This was owed to the fact that Mr Koh’s lessons were always well-planned and engaging. Mr Koh provides notes that contain the essence of various essay topics, allowing us to use the knowledge and examples provided to target a wide variety of question types. Mr Koh also handpicks the most relevant articles to keep students updated with the latest examples. These articles also served as a basis for class discussions where every student was given the chance to voice out their thoughts, whether be it queries or additional information. The tutors would then provide their take on the article. Therefore, Mr Koh’s lessons provide his students with a wholesome experience for every GP topic.
Finally, Mr Koh and Mr Ong were very amicable and approachable, often staying back to clarify student’s doubts or taking out time after lessons to peruse student’s extra essays. Overall, Mr Koh’s and Mr Ong’s lessons have greatly boosted my confidence in writing essays as well as answering comprehension questions. They have imparted in me GP skills that have proved to be effective as seen by grade leap from E in GP to B during the A levels. Their keenness to help their students was undeniably reflected in their student’s commendable GP results.

Mr Koh and Mr Ong are both very dedicated tutors. Lesson materials and conduct of lessons are simple and concise, and I found myself writing with more confidence and speed in both paper 1 and 2.
Their dedication extends to marking multiple paper 1 and 2 drafts on a weekly basis and giving detailed feedback through comments and even phone calls, and as such I found myself improving dramatically in the period leading up to prelims and eventually the A levels.
Thanks Mr Koh and Mr Ong for helping and pushing me through for GP, I definitely wouldn't have been able to do it without your help and dedication!
