Darren Gouk and Malaysia’s Learning Marketplace


Human Asia caught up with A-One Learning’s founder Darren Gouk.

In Malaysia, parents fork out anywhere between MYR 200 to MYR 2000 per month in lessons for each child. About 88% of children from primary school upwards receive some form of tutoring. Parents are willing to invest heavily in children’s skills set to enhance their future prospects, and the most popular non-academic lessons are sports, music and art lessons.

Also recently, health awareness in society has aroused the demand for personal training, yoga and martial arts courses. So in general, I believe the learning and education industry will be keep growing exponentially in the near future. You can also see the same trend happening in the neighboring countries.
