Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose SG POA to master your POA?
Being an ex-MOE teacher differentiates Mr Wynn Khoo, Mr Anthony Quek, Ms Amber Wan and Ms Raine Lee from many other tutors. They were trained by MOE for the transition of syllabus and they are able to understand the syllabus well.
What the syllabus entails (mainly book-keeping) is vastly different from the actual real world accounting.
Our teachers also keep themselves abreast of the updates in syllabus and the occasional disclosure from Cambridge to MOE teachers, to provide the best quality academic guidance for the students.
An accountancy graduate or an accountant may know how to do book-keeping, however, being able to practice accounting does not equate to being able to teach accounting.
Our teachers are able to deliver the lesson in a concise and easy to understand manner to help our 15 and 16 years old students understand accounting concepts that leaves many working adults baffled.
They possess the ability to engage students using real life examples to make the lessons interesting and meaningful. It helps the students see POA as a useful and meaningful subject rather than one that requires them to memorise in order to score a good grade for exams.
Our teachers are sincere, committed and patient.
Having taught in a school setting, they understand the common difficulties that each student faces for the subject.
Dedicated to tackle the problems that students usually encounter by putting all efforts to help them and not leaving any one behind.
How will I benefit from the POA tuition lessons?
Students will undergo a highly effective programme that closely monitors their progress. Our teachers will make use of specially designed quality lesson materials e.g. exam papers, personalised notes to tie up with learning strategies that will maximise students' potential in scoring for Principles of Accounts.
Students will be tested at different level of difficulties for each chapter, through the careful selection of questions, which will increase the students' ability to cope with tough examinations. The strong emphasis on understanding concepts and not memorising is our underlying teaching philosophy.
Graduating students will also go through a series of exam preparation time trial which follows the O levels requirements very closely. The practice will allow students to identify their weak chapters, and together with professional coaching, it will prepare them to be exam-ready before their prelims and O levels.
Our methodology has a proven track record of lifting the POA grades of students from a D to F, to an A and B grade.
Where is the venue of POA tuition classes?
Group POA tuition will be conducted at Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, Bishan Central, Blk 135 Jurong Gateway Road and at Blk 201E Tampines St 23. Many students do travel from far locations such as Boon Lay, Seng Kang and Changi to attend our POA tuition classes because they find value in attending our lessons.
Do you have trial lessons?
Trial lessons can be arranged based on requests. Fees will differ according to the subject chosen and the level of study.
Can I choose online lessons?
Students are allowed to opt for either onsite or online lessons. We will make the following arrangements for online students:
a) Material for the classes, such as notes and exercises, will be mailed to individual home addresses in advance.
b) Students will be added into a WhatsApp group chat and a link will be sent to the group. Online students may enter the virtual classroom via the link provided.
Online students may switch to on-site lessons subsequently, subject to space availability in the classroom.
How are the lessons being conducted?
POA tuition lessons are conducted in a small class setting in a conducive environment for optimal learning. Our teachers will deliver the lessons with specially designed curriculum notes and worksheets. Each lesson is carefully planned and thought out to ensure superior delivery and to make sure that all the students will be stimulated cognitively and benefit from the class.
Students will not be left alone but will be engaged throughout the lesson through questions and answers to check on their understanding.

What do students need to bring along for POA lessons?
All POA notes and worksheets will be provided for use during the lesson. Students are advised to bring along a sweater and their writing materials. Our teachers are also open to help students with school assignments when they encounter difficulties.
Can I still join the POA classes at the mid or end of year?
Yes, getting help at the last minute may not be the best option. However, you will definitely find the classes beneficial and still see improvements in your understanding of the subject and also the end results.
May I request for one-to-one lessons?
Our tuition classes are catered in the form of group lessons. You may arrange for a trial lesson to experience the effectiveness of our lessons for yourself.
In contrast to home POA tutors who may not have the relevant teaching experience and structured lesson materials in place, our teachers are able to form up detailed lessons plans that optimize lesson delivery. Through interactive group discussions, students are able to gain a better and deeper understanding of the subject content. This is supported by the proven track record as shown from the quality results produced and positive testimonials from former students.

Will there be POA tuition classes on public holidays?
All centres will be closed on all public holidays. If any lesson falls on a public holiday, a make-up class will be arranged. In the event that a make-up class cannot be arranged, no fees would be charged.
Will there be a refund if I am unable to attend a particular POA tuition class?
Students may attend make-up lesson (on-site or online) on the other days of the same week if they are unavailable for their registered tuition class. Otherwise the lesson recording for the week will be sent to the students to catch up on the missed content. There will be no other refunds or pro-rating of the fees.
