Joanne Tan - Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School - 2020 1

For less than a year, I have had the pleasure of having Mr Ling’s guidance in POA and have received a drastic improvement within a short span of time. He is a driven, strict and engaging teacher who never fail to put all his efforts into students’ learning. He challenged me to consistently produce high quality work and patiently guided me misconceptions thoroughly, ensuring that I completely understand the concepts. The lessons and homework given are enlightening, eye-opening, while also… “Joanne Tan – Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School – 2020”

Elysha Winter – CHIJ Katong Convent - 2020 2

Mr Ling’s POA class was always a highlight on Thursdays for me. I took POA outside of school, so Mr Ling was my only POA teacher. He made lessons very engaging by always having a good reason for things, always being supported by an actual “real world” example. This made lessons very easy to understand. His teaching methods and order of the syllabus that I followed made leaning POA simple, and I truly believe that it was the best way… “Elysha Winter – CHIJ Katong Convent – 2020”

Lingesh – St. Gabriel’s Sec School - 2020 3

For my subject combination for Sec 3, I was happy to get POA as my option. Throughout the year, I rarely passed any POA tests or exams. It’s not that I didn’t show any interest, I just could not understand the concepts. Although I tried many possible ways to improve, I still struggled. But after coming across Mr Ling’s accounting tuition webpage (bestpoa.com), everything changed for the better. Due to my school teacher’s lack of experience, it was difficult for… “Lingesh – St. Gabriel’s Sec School – 2020”

Since the end of last year, I had always been failing POA and did not really care much about it since I was only Sec 3 and thought that I could manage things on my own. But only during the holidays I realised how important POA was. And I was desperate for help when my cousin recommended me Mr Ling, whom was his tuition teacher when he was in secondary school. Mr Ling helped me pull my grades up by… “Brennan Marin – St. Gabriel’s Sec School – 2020”

Cai C.Y. – Private Candidate -2019 5

When I decided to do my “O” levels as a private student, I was forced to take up POA as they did not offer Art as a subject, which was what I took in secondary school. In fact, the private school refused to allow me to attend their POA classes as I had zero knowledge in POA at all – and then I found Mr Ling, who gladly offered to take me under his wing, even when he learned that… “Cai C.Y. – Private Candidate -2019”

Mr Ling is a very knowledgeable person with an approachable personality, which makes it easy for his students to ask him questions on both the subject and other affairs. His lessons are filled with interesting personal experiences and he always links all the topics together so that we get a clear understanding of what we are learning. I am a slow learner who always forgets the basics when I learn something new. Fortunately, Mr Ling’s homework exercises and revisions enabled… “Sneha Angelin – CHIJ Sec (Toa Payoh) -2019”

Mr Ling’s classes has always been fun and enjoyable. He has not only taught me POA but also imparted his knowledge and humor into the lessons taught. He has piqued my interest in POA and made learning not as tough as I thought it was. He broke down the topics and taught us in a way that all of us could understand and grasp. He has also made me motivated to work hard to reach my goal. Thank you so… “Phoebe Seow – CHIJ Sec (Toa Payoh) -2019”

Natasha Eliza – Private Candidate -2019 8

I came into Mr Ling’s POA class with no background in POA as I took Art for my ‘O’ Levels the previous year. During my first few lessons I thought it was boring because it took a month or two to complete the foundations of accounting, but after a while POA is now my favorite subject. Mr Ling’s way of explaining the topics and relating it to real life contexts, has not only made me learn the topics easily but… “Natasha Eliza – Private Candidate -2019”

When I first entered this tuition, I had no knowledge of Principles of Accounts. I thought that this subject is going to be boring as they are, keep talking about business. But in my first lesson which was on 19th January 2017, Mr Edmund Ling made it interesting for me. He is always prepared to answer questions which I usually ask him. Furthermore, he taught me discipline too. From a naughty student I become a good and hardworking student where… “Vijay – Bendemeer Sec School -2019”

I started joining Mr Ling’s tuition back in March 2018. I dreaded coming here because I really hated POA, always failing or getting “Just pass” during mini tests. However, after joining Mr Ling’s class for awhile, I started to see great improvements in my grades. From C6 at the start of 2018 to getting constant As till now. Instead of me asking my friends questions, they are the ones asking me now. Thank you, Mr Ling for making this 2… “Kelly Ng – Bendemeer Sec School -2019”
