Every Singaporean student has to face the same dreaded thing – POA or Principles of Accounts. You might be able to do well in other subjects like English and Math, but POA seems overwhelming for many students. And it can be a nightmare for parents whose children are not familiar with this ever-growing stream of financial accounting practices in Singapore. And so here we are, looking for a POA tuition or a good POA tutor to pull you out of this valley and this begs the question: How do I choose a good POA tutor?

In this article, we will discuss 4 crucial things that you should look out for when choosing a POA tutor from a POA tuition class that suits all your needs.

Qualification, Capability and Experience

How many times have you heard that this tuition centre can definitely help you or that tutor can definitely solve all your problems, only to find out that this tutor has barely been teaching for less than a year and barely knows what they’re doing!

The first thing you’d want as a student would be to make sure your tutor has the necessary qualifications and capabilities to teach the subject matter effectively. A tutor’s experience and qualification increases their arsenal of strategies and methods that will help empower any student to tackle anything that comes their way.

Spotting Weaknesses

Look for a tutor who can spot weaknesses in a student’s understanding quickly. If a tutor is unable to do so, then this tutor would not be able to help you improve on these areas of weakness and progress through your studies more quickly than if you were learning on your own. This ability to spot what you can do better, goes back to the previous point about experience and capability of a good POA tutor.


You don’t need a tutor that teaches you exactly the same things that you hear from school, you need a tutor that has something different from what you hear from school. You need a tutor that can construct and plan a lesson to be so personalised to your own learning style that you will excel while working on your weaknesses, as well as capitalising on your strengths.


Your POA tutor’s ability to have connections and unlimited range of resources plays a huge role in choosing a POA tutor. Sometimes, even if you were paying close attention to a lesson, you may still not be able to understand! Therefore, your tutor must be able to attend to the query by providing either a different set of methods or a different way of explaining that ultimately answers the question in an efficient and effective manner.

What makes “us” different from everyone else?

Fear is a powerful emotion. It can paralyse you and stop you from doing what you want.

How to teach Principles of Accounts

Most students are in fear of trying something new, fearing that their tutor might not be happy with it, but here at MPOA, we understand that a student needs to have that safe space to practice without the fear of any judgement from other students or even other tutors! And our tutors provide a safe space for students to grow at their own pace that will ultimately give them the opportunity to have those learning breakthroughs.

I’m sure that more than one student can testify of the struggles with the thought that a very good memory is compulsory for you to do well in POA or even just in school! But here at MPOA, our LEAP framework helps students learn 4x faster! *without all that memory work*
