I have received a drastic improvement within a short span of time. Mr Ling patiently guided me on misconceptions, ensuring that I completely understood the concepts.  During the COVID-19 pandemic period, Mr Ling quickly switched to online classes, He was able to make all his students stay alert throughout lessons, and was efficient in returning marked homework, of which he highlighted the mistakes we made during lessons. Mr Ling’s online classes were just as fruitful and productive as face-to-face classes.

We've produced TOP POA SCHOLARS

Results speak louder than words. Some of our students came to us with F9 grade in POA. After attending our specially curated POA tuition for a year, they came out top in their respective schools, far exceeding the expectations of their school teachers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Accounting is an information system based on generally accepted accounting principles. It involves the recording and processing of business transactions, and communicating the information to stakeholders. Students will be taught the relevant accounting knowledge, skills and values; learn to use both accounting information and non-accounting information related to the business to make decisions.

Principles of Accounts (POA) subject offers not only the general accounting knowledge but also an avenue to broaden students’ future career opportunities in the accountancy or business industries.

POA is NOT a mathematics subject, students are only required to have basic knowledge of arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) to do basic accounting. So, if you are weak in mathematics, you can still manage POA.

Yes, BestPOA online lessons are available now and they are the wiser solution for you. Travelling time is saved for our online students, and concurrently, they are equipped with strong learning materials support. Lesson notes and practice questions, in hardcopies, will be provided to our students instantaneously without delay. In contrast, most home POA tutors may not possess relevant teaching experience and may not have sufficient teaching materials in place due to the mobility restrictions.

Highlights about our BestPOA online lessons:

  • Notes & exercises will be given in hardcopies.
  • All answers from every student will be marked and discussed.
  • Online classes are proven interactive and fun by graduated students.
  • Unique teaching methods and skills allow students to stay focused proven by students and parents.
  • High results effectiveness proven by national exam results and graduated students’ testimonials.

Students who choose to give up the subject is because of their unique “unsolvable” problems with the subject such as, scored badly due to weak foundation, couldn’t get used to the POA teachings in school, didn’t like the school subject teachers, always misunderstood the concepts, couldn’t understand debits & credits and etc.

Mr Edmund Ling empathizes with the students’ problems and he is highly experience in handling these.

To help these students, rebuilding their interest and confidence are our main priorities. Mr Edmund Ling’s B.E.S.T. teaching programme is geared to train every student to build up a profound understanding from foundation, and gradually increase their confidence and interest, and eventually see a leap in the results. Over the years, our B.E.S.T. teaching programme has helped many students, you may see their successful stories in the Testimonials page. Your child could be one of them.

For group classes:            2 – 5 students

Small group classes ensure best focus on students and delivery of effective teaching.

1-on-1 class is not our regular practice. But at times if any student requires additional help, Mr Edmund Ling may consider a special 1-on-1 class for the needy student.

Yes, small group classes have proven to be very effective. Our 30 years’ results of maintaining 90% of students scored A and B grades by both N(A) and O-Level POA students speak for us. The reason behind all of these successful group classes is NOT simple. Mr Edmund Ling has his unique communication skills to allow his students to perform in the class and share their experiences which would benefit everyone. Students in the group classes are far more participative, livelier and usually they would become good friends. The group classes are lively, vocal and productive but NOT noisy.

At times if any student requires additional help, Mr Edmund Ling may still consider a special 1-on-1 class for the needy student. Again, we leave no one behind!!

To reduce the psychological barriers of parents and students, we DO NOT charge any deposits, lock-in fees, registration and material fees (for the first set of notes and exercises). Students will be given study materials and a file for better organisation of study materials. All these are free of charge.

Don’t worry about it. Our main teaching objective is LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND! Sounded like the military?? We have specially-planned lessons for your child to help them keep up with the progress. We literally leave no one behind. We will ensure that every student keeps abreast of the course. They will never, ever feel left out. We have successfully tried out this program for many years and feedback from students is very encouraging.

Yes, there will be make-up class for students who missed the scheduled lessons, subject to the terms and conditions.

It is important to understand that all students MUST BE committed to the learning by presenting themselves according to their schedules. Students are strongly encouraged NOT to miss any lesson to ensure the continuity in learning. From experience, students who miss lessons without making them up will usually have a problem catching up.

Yes, there will be POA crash courses organised during June holidays. It will run for approximately 3 to 4 months. The June school holidays are very crucial to the crash courses students. Students are strongly advised not to leave for vacation during the June holidays if they need the crash course to prepare them for the current year's exam. Students taking crash courses after June school holidays will face much greater stress in coping with the syllabus.

Yes. End-of-Year Intensive Revision Courses (3 to 5 days) will be organised for my students in September (for N(A)-Level) and in October/November (for O-Level) before the GCE N(A) and O-Levels POA examinations.

These End-of-Year Intensive Revision Courses will cover the A-to-Z contents in the syllabus. Important topics will be highlighted and practiced in the class. Over the years, these courses have been proven highly successful and needed by the students. Hence, all students should attend the course to finish off their final lap. This is the very last thing Mr Edmund Ling would like to contribute to your success in learning POA.

Mr Edmund Ling is very committed to teaching and is very well versed with the MOE syllabus. Being a Chartered Accountant in Singapore and with all the contacts and avenues, he is able to obtain the latest developments in the subject and accountancy profession. He reorganized the whole syllabus to allow his students to understand it easier.

Mr Edmund Ling prepares his students for the exam from Day 1.

He treated all his students like his own children and he is willing to make use of his expertise to help them in the accounting subject.

Mr Edmund Ling is not a school teacher but this does not discredit him.

Parents should have heard from their own children the problems they faced in school. Hence teachers and ex-teachers are not a guarantee. The ability to deliver the lessons with understanding is Mr Edmund Ling's key asset. He ensured that his students understood all topics well and never had he forced his students to memorise the work.
