Before going for Mr Goh’s lessons, I consistently had gotten a Grade 2-3 for the various tests and exams. After his committed tutelage, I have managed to attain a Grade 7 in the IB Math AA syllabus examination in a relatively short time frame.
Mr Goh, paced me to learn the topics with sufficient depth, while making the necessary connections with other topics. He starts off with a simple idea, and builds on it to a complex idea so that you can truly appreciate the beauty behind every theory or formula. Mathematics became less mundane and more fun to learn. Internal Assessment (IA) for mathematics is particularly daunting for many, as teachers in school typically provide skimpy feedback, owing to the time constraints and IB restrictions. Especially when I'm doing IA, he has provided very good ideas as well as consistent and detailed guidance, for after his years of experience as an IB teacher, he knows precisely what the examiners are looking for. Since IA is a very important component of the grade, as it constitutes 20% of the final grade, Mr Goh has helped me secure a high grade in IA and I therefore would not have as much pressure to do extremely well for the final written examination.
Lastly, Mr Goh teaches you certain GDC savviness that are unknown to students and teachers to not only double check, but more importantly, obtain the answers in the fastest manner. Time is of the essence in Math AA syllabus examinations and these skills will be essential in maximising your grades.

Mr Goh is an exceptional educator with the ability to pinpoint and address specific gaps in his students' understanding. He possesses a strong grasp in the subject given his many years of teaching, which allows him to clearly teach his students his own incredible exam strategies and best methods to tackle trickier questions. Additionally, he has initiative and often attends courses about math and bothers to find out changes in its testing over the years, hence placing him ahead of regular school teachers in terms of understanding. Though I only had less than 4 months of time with him, he was miraculously able to push my Mathematics grade from 3 in CTs to 7 in IB examinations. I strongly recommend him to any student interested in truly appreciating the subject and eager to actually internalise how to approach it correctly.

My Maths IA was by far one of the most difficult tasks of my IB. But luckily , at the start of my IB Year 2, I started working on it with Mr Goh. Mr Goh gave me clear guidance throughout the process- this allowed me to transition through it smoothly. Additionally Mr Goh’s approach allowed me to gain a thorough understanding of my IA that later helped me when I was finally proofreading my IA before submitting it. Above all though, I think Mr Goh has truly improved my understanding of mathematics. The tips and tricks I gained from him really helped me finally achieve the level 7 for HL Maths. I truly would recommend him for anyone starting their maths ia and HL Maths students.
