Hi, my name is Caleb
For the past 12 years since graduating from Nanyang Business School with an accountancy degree, I’ve been helping students with improving their failing F9 grades to A1-B4 in the GCE N/O Level POA examinations in Singapore.
You see, when I was struggling as an accounting undergrad with no background at all in the debits and credits, I wish someone would explain it to me in a jargon-free, relatable way.
As a humanities major in Anglo-Chinese Junior College, I appreciated accountancy as a business language. I had my ‘ah-ha’ moment when I figured out how to distill accounting concepts for my first POA student and wrote the first study guide at 24 years old. Since then, we build Master Principles of Accounts with the same passion of making it accessible to new and struggling learners – to be the tutor we wish we had when we were struggling ourselves.
More than a thousand students have graduated through our doors since 2008. Some of them have even became auditors, including my first student (thankfully!)
When I first started POA in Sec 3 it seemed very foreign to me. I would often feel lost in class. It was very tedious studying POA as I was always one step behind the teacher so I ended up memorising the double entries. Doing so got me barely scraping through the exams, leaving me discouraged and wanting to give up.
One day, while I was cramming for my MYE in the library, my friend, Simran, saw that I was so distraught she rendered help.
I was amazed at her understanding of the topic as she had explained to me in a very clear and concise manner. Out of curiosity I asked how she did it . She told me that she tried to understand the concepts rather than memorising them. She also said that she used the Master Principles of Accounts study guide extensively for her revisions.
That changed my perspective on POA and motivated me to better my revision methods. I started using the MPOA study guide into my revision. The smarter approach helped me improved and maintain a B3 throughout Secondary 4 and I scored a B3 for my N levels.
When I went on to Sec 5, however, I realised that I had to further improve my learning methods as the gap in Sec 5 was immense and that’s when I joined Caleb’s Master Principles of Accounts tuition.
With his guidance and consistent revision, the transition between N to O levels was much smoother . Caleb‘s fervour and dedication as a tutor deepened my interest in POA; I thrive in the subject I was able to jump to an A2 by the end of my Secondary 5. With consistent practice and proper guidance, anyone can excel in POA
The Master POA Difference
- Unlike most tuition centres, we only offer accountancy tuition – this is our speciality since the inception of the company in 2008.
- We meet POA students where they are. More than 90% of the students who come to us struggle with the basics.
For these students, tear down the broken pieces and build the foundation from-scratch, like a blank-canvas
- We focus on the common mistakes and core financial concepts. We identify the common pitfalls and mistakes so that when they make them, we emphasise these are the things to watch for.
- We intentionally approach POA differently from the teacher in schools. I mean, if the school teacher method works, why does the POA student need help? The teaching methods are approached from a lifeskill perspective, designed for concept stickiness because of its real-life application.
- We design our curriculum in-house, specifically for struggling students. Whether it’s the gorgeously illustrated study guide, or our 180 sets of topical worksheets or even our state-of-the-art learning management systems with clear explanations in video recordings, our POA students are in safe hands.
The basics POA course is specifically designed for totally new or struggling students who need help with the basic double entries. The building blocks of the accounting concepts will help accelerate the learning for more advanced topics.
If someone who hates memorising like me can help so many struggling students first pass, then excel in POA, so can you. – Caleb, The POA Tutor
During our regular POA tuition class, students will apply the foundation debits and credits against the advanced topics. Using real life examples, Caleb the POA tutor, breaks down the complex jargons and help students apply them in the POA exam.

Are group lessons effective for POA?
POA is a principles-based subject. In many instances, the ‘ah-ha’ moments happen when a student asks a question that another didn’t think about asking – but it is that exact question that clears the knowledge gap. Similarly, when a difficult concept is experienced by everyone, no individual student feels that they are alone struggling. The in-class discussions and pacing with other students often reinforces the cadence needed to keep learning motivating.
In some cases, however, students may require 1:1 attention from a patient teacher, especially if attention span or learning difficulty is a proven issue for learners in a group setting.
Do you offer 1:1 POA Tuition?
Yes, we understand that in some situations, students may have difficulty attending group lessons on site or online. If you require a private accounting tutor, one of our partner POA teacher (some ex teacher, trained in MPOA framework, no less) will assist.
Please call us to enquire about availability for a home tutor.
How is a typical class conducted?
Master POA follows the LEAP framework using real-life, age-appropriate examples to help students connect POA concepts with common sense, day-to-day activities:
L – LOGIC
E – EQUATION
A – APPLICATION
P – PRACTICE
Details of the framework is proprietary. Suffice to say, students move from L – P in that exact order.
The phrase ‘if it doesn’t make sense, it’s wrong, regardless the format.’ We detest memorisation without common sense to a great degree. If you are huge on memorisation, we are not a good fit for you.
Is the basics class compulsory?
Short answer: Yes and No. (typical teacher answer?).
The building blocks of understanding that aggregate towards the core topics in the curriculum requires that the foundation is correctly built. We liken this to be like the foundations of a building. The deep work is done in the foundation and development is accelerated when there is a firm foundation. Students who memorised double entries might have done well in the early tests. But cracks will show up in the double entry diagnostic tests if the basics was memorised rather than understood.
