Over the past 1-2 weeks, I’ve been so blessed and humbled to receive so many birthday and Teachers’ Day messages from my students, including former students who have already graduated, are now in the university or even working! On the opening night of the Intentional Disciplemaking Church (IDMC) Conference this year, Rev Edmund Chan made a profound statement that still reverberates in my spirit. He said that the meaning of life is to find your gift; the purpose of life is to give it away. Thank you Lord for giving me the gifts of your abundant grace and love. Now I’m giving them away. ...read more
This year’s National Day is a special one for Irwin’s Study as we were interviewed by 8 Days & i-Weekly on our views of how to use General Paper (GP) to get 18-year-old students interested in Singapore issues. Check out our interviews in English and Mandarin below! =)...read more
And after months of hard work writing, reading, editing, re-reading, re-editing, I’ve finally published my first 3 GP books! =) These are 3 volumes of GP Essays spread across various popular topics and themes in the GP examination, and here are how they look like: (I’m pretty chaffed with the book covers especially because I chose the designs =) And here is a sampler of some GP Essays that are found in these 3 volumes: The elimination of poverty is a realistic aim. Discuss. Does globalisation divide rather than unite the world? “Environmental concerns and economic goals cannot co-exist.” Do you agree? Can terrorism ever be justified? “A good government is one that is able to make unpopular decisions.” Discuss. To what extent do the new media promote democratic ideals? “Women will never enjoy the same rights as men.” Do you agree? Childhood is the most beautiful of all life’s seasons. Have today’s children lost their childhood? Are the golden years a myth in Singapore? In an age where knowledge becomes obsolete so quickly, do schools still have a future? Consider the view that Man is more knowledgeable, but not necessarily wiser. Discuss the value of solitude. How far do you agree that travel is more than sight-seeing? “While science has made modern life better, it does not guarantee an easier life.” Discuss. Can prejudice ever be removed? “The arts are more than just a form of entertainment.” To what extent is this true? Is there any value in preserving dialects in your society? “The value of sports is overrated.” Comment. Are we giving too much attention to criminals and neglecting victims? So do look out for them at Popular bookshops and your school’s bookstores, and may you find them helpful for your GP resource preparation! =)...read more
Wow! This is the first time ever that we have had to put interested new students on a waiting list to join our GP tuition classes!

Today is a special day because Irwin’s Study is 7 years-old! =) Looking back at how it all started with one small class of GP students in 2009 to how God has grown Irwin’s Study to where it is today, I cannot help but marvel at His amazing provision and grace upon this little business He has given me to do. Five different venues, dozens of fellow tutors, and nearly a thousand students later, I am privileged and humbled to see how God can use the work of my hands to glorify His goodness. “Whatever the land yields during the sabbath year will be food for you—for yourself, your male and female servants, and the hired worker and temporary resident who live among you…” (Leviticus 25:6) As a thanksgiving to God’s blessings upon my life and my business in this 7th year (Sabbath year), I want to honour God’s command to remember the needs in the world by giving a portion of what I have earned to several welfare and Christian organisations. The work that they do have impacted and touched Yingjie’s and my heart these past few years, and I pray that these amounts that we give will be used to bring help, succour, comfort and most importantly, Christ’s love to those who need it. As we have received, so shall we give!...read more
