Mr Goh tutored me from the start of Year 5 up till my graduation in Year 6. I’m sure you would’ve read many reviews of brilliant students praising Sir’s amazing math intuition where he is able to seamlessly integrate concepts from different chapters and extend his teachings to real-life applications beyond the discipline of mathematics itself. I write my testimony (written autonomously – no strings attached) from the perspective of a student who was not naturally inclined towards Mathematics, but gradually fell in love with it after being taught by Mr Goh. Before I start, I just want to thank you (Sir) for your patient instruction for the last two years. It wasn’t easy being your student due to the numerous challenges and obstacles we had to overcome together, but I learnt a lot.
Initially, I studied math for its practicality, not completely because of my love for the subject. Nonetheless, as i had the fortune of meeting Sir, I was exposed to a syllabus that surpassed your average classroom content. Suddenly, math wasn’t so dry. Even as a student who was considered average in mathematics, I experienced several “wow” moments every session, even if I didn’t always understand his teachings at first. My Math Exploration (ME) in particular impressed me, and after all the confusing nights and hints left by Sir, I managed to come up with a report that I never knew I was capable of producing. Moreover, it was very different from what the rest of my peers had come up with.
Even if you are a student who studies math as a means to an end without the innate desire to understand further, I can guarantee you that Sir’s approach in ensuring academic excellence for your exams is strategic and foolproof. Whenever Sir teaches you to deal with a problem, he gives you two to three methods. After being with him for a while, he will also impart upon you some mathematical sense or GDC savviness that will help you to double check your answers.
Personally, I believe that the best part about being Sir’s student is that no matter how strong or weak you are, if you are willing to commit effort, he will really try his best to help you. He is about as communicative as you are with him, but also about as desperate (or passionate) as you get. Also, he’ll only ever get angry at you for laziness, but never for being slow. I think that there is no doubt, Sir’s fees are very expensive, which may put some people off. But at the end of the day I really felt the difference. Not just in mathematical ability, but also in conventional life wisdom. Given the chance to travel back in time, I would’ve definitely made the same decision of learning under Sir.
GraceACSI Grade 6 for HL Math
Mr Goh helped me pull my math grade from a U to an A in the span of 3 short months.
Throughout JC, I was always struggling with H2 math. No matter how I studied, I wasn't able to fully comprehend the concepts, and thus could not solve the questions at all. As a result, I failed all my test grades, from the smallest class quiz to the end-of-Year promotional exams. I had almost given up, and thought that since I lacked the natural aptitude for Math, there was no hope for me to improve my math results. However, under the urging of my mother, I decided to try out lessons with Mr Goh.
Even though I didn't have a lot of confidence in myself, Mr Goh made sure to remind me that I was capable of achieving good marks in math. This was vital in helping me in my A-level math journey, and really played an essential role in keeping me motivated for this subject. Mr Goh made learning a very enjoyable experience and under his guidance, I slowly started to comprehend the mathematical concepts which I previously found so difficult. He had tips and tricks that were not taught in school, and was able to guide me to approach question solving in novel ways that were incredibly intuitive. He also pushed me to work harder and harder for math, ensuring that I did my due diligence in the form of practice questions and papers. Ultimately, during the A level papers, I managed to answer every single question, something that I had failed to do throughout my JC experience.
For A levels, I scored an A for math, the first A in the past two years, and I can say with 100% confidence that I owe it to Mr Goh. Thank you!

Mr Goh is an exceptional teacher. I was really struggling in SL Math and was fortunate to have Mr Goh as my teacher. He can explain concepts clearly and taught me how to effectively tackle different types of questions. There were times when I felt like giving up but Mr Goh kept me on track and pushed me on. Through his dedication and tough love at times, I persevered. I worked through countless questions and papers with Mr Goh’s guidance. I managed to score a 7 in SL Math and owe this success to Mr Goh! Thank you Sir !
