"I had never passed Econs. Mr Hong brought me from a U to an A. His additional knowledge has provided me with the cutting edge to stand out amongst my peers...equipping me with all the core skills to answer every kind of economic question that may arise!...

In the recent A-level examinations, Mr Hong even accurately predicted the case study questions! I now have an A for Economics...He turned my worst subject into my best subject!"

"Mr Hong's classes are always fun, engaging & insightful, making economics much easier to understand & internalise... The explanations from Mr Hong's classes are always detailed & clear as each individual point/argument is broken down for easy understanding.

The pace is fast but I never had to worry about falling behind because Mr Hong always makes sure we get it before moving on with his “on the spot questions/quizzes”.

He also teaches a variety of exam skills & writing techniques that aren’t usually taught in school, to write our essays in the most concise & accurate way possible in the given time. From U to A!"

"A great teacher who taught concepts very clearly & in a way that could be remembered...Provided a lot of materials, practices & went through them with us thoroughly, making sure to highlight important key concepts & phrases which was really helpful.

Lessons were very interactive...very helpful along with the homework given!!! It's easier through the tips given to answering csq & essays, which helped me to get an A in the A levels."

"Lessons were rich with real world examples & relevant to the syllabus, killing two birds with one stone in preparing for exams. The dedication that goes into teaching every class is evident in the clarity of explanations, ability to engage & the numerous resources provided.

He always delivered with sharp wit & humour, effective techniques for memorising complex concepts, frameworks & included insightful personal experiences and knowledge.

Achieving a 7 for Economics was beyond what I thought myself capable, and would not have been possible without the guidance & constant practice I received through these lessons."

"My experience with Mr Hong’s economics tuition has been an amazing one. I always gain new insights and tips every single lesson.

Mr Hong is able to explain concepts in a way that makes it much simpler to understand and remember. He is also able to pick out the important questions to focus on and drill us with the skills essential in tackling those questions.

Mr Hong’s notes have assisted me greatly during my revision for examinations as they are very concise, yet comprises of all the key concepts and details to remember. Furthermore, Mr Hong’s enthusiasm and passion for the subject and teaching always inspires me to work hard and develop a genuine love for the subject. From being a subject i dreaded studying, to one that constantly fascinates me. I am more than grateful to Mr Hong for helping me to discover my love for economics and for achieving an A for my A-levels."

Important Skills We Teach

Interactive & Engaging Hybrid Online Tuition Classes

(Mini Group 4 – 6 pax)

Our highly-interactive classes (see student reviews of our online economics tuition) allow our students to BE ENGAGED & to EASILY learn anytime & anywhere. Through our real-time online whiteboard, students get to do “hands-on” work & receive feedback instantly. This approach provides a more EFFECTIVE learning experience and allows our students to CONVENIENTLY enjoy & revise the lessons.

Unlike other tuition centres, we mostly conduct Mini Group (4-6pax) classes as we believe that this will better enrich each student’s learning. We want to see and hear from every student, every class. Chief Tutor Mr Kelvin Hong knows each student personally and closely keeps track of their progress and interacts with them regularly. Besides our Mini and Small groups (8-12pax), private economics tuition is also available including with our team of Senior Economics Tutors.

In short, we do not mass produce. Every student is a VIP in our class.
As a result, we have produced top-in-cohort students from EJC, TJC, RIJC, JPJC, HCI, 
ACS Indep, ACS International & Tanglin Trust School.
There are likely more as these are only based on what we have been informed!

What’s more, group class students get 2.5-3 hours worth of lessons every week! At least 2 hours Live + More through Video lessons and Online Explanations that will be given to our students to stay on top of the subject every week. We operate a cutting-edge model of a Special Hybrid + Blended Learning formula that has worked extremely well for our students.

Check out more on Fees, Group Size and Schedule.

Different Clusters of IB & JC
Economics Tuition Groups

Every year, most of our students come from Anglo Chinese JC, Hwa Chong JC, National JC, Raffles Institution JC, Yishun Innova JC, Victoria JC, Temasek JC, Dunman High School, Jurong Pioneer JC, Anderson Serangoon JC, Tampines Meridian JC, River Valley High, Nanyang JC, ACS Independent, SJI Independent, SJI International and Hwa Chong International. Occasionally, we receive students from Singapore Sports School, ACS International, School Of The Arts and others. Every year, we also have private candidates in our classes.

We do our best to operate 6 different clusters of tuition groups according to different syllabi and schools:

Cluster A (ACJC, SAJC, ASRJC, YIJC, JPJC, HCI, TMJC, EJC, RVHS & TJC) Cluster B (RIJC, NJC, DHS)
Cluster C (CJC, NYJC & VJC) Cluster D (H1) Cluster E (IB-HL)  Cluster F (IB-SL )

No other tuition centre caters to that many clusters to provide the ideal, most optimal arrangement for students. For example, many do not offer Pure H1 A Level Economics classes. They tend to mix both A Level H2 and H1 students together but this can be harmful to the students as the topics and exam formats are now very different. (H2 Economics Syllabus , H1 Economics Syllabus). Some also mix NYJC and VJC students with RIJC and TJC students. That would be a massive mess as NYJC and VJC students do not learn “Theory of Firm and Market Structure” topic in J1 unlike for RIJC and TJC students.

At The Economics Tutor (TET), we design both class size and grouping to be most optimal for our students. We have even given our students an option of a special Hybrid of Live Online+Physical+Blended Learning to maximise learning, convenience and fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

Very good questions. Economics is quite a challenging subject. I liken it to a combination of GP+Math+Science. It is also very useful knowledge. To understand more about studying Economics in JC, read our Ultimate Guide to JC A Level Economics in Singapore.

IB and A Level Economics cover very similar topics – roughly 80% overlapping. The biggest difference lies in the examination formats and the requirement of Internal Assessment Commentaries as part of the IB coursework which will count towards the final IB result, whereas for the A Levels, it is entirely based on the A Level exams. Click on to learn more about IB Economics.

In addition, A-Level Economics is more focused on traditional economic theory, while the IB syllabus is more broad-based and interdisciplinary. IB Economics includes some aspects from other disciplines such as psychology and sociology, which are not covered in the A-Level syllabus.

A Level students taking H2 economics sit for 2 papers, while IB students taking HL economics sit for 3 papers, including a “Math paper”, which A Level students do not. A Level H1 economics students sit for 1 paper while IB SL students sit for 2. So do IB students have to do more? Not really. For example, IB students only need to do 1 essay in the exams but A Level students have to do 3!

There is stronger requirement for real-world examples to be weaved into IB economics essays than for A Levels. However, the A Levels require a lot of knowledge and examples about Singapore. IB on the other hand, has a more international focus and has Development Economics as a key topic, which is not in the A Levels.

Having said all these, Singapore A Level Economics examinations tend to be much tougher and require students to produce a lot more rigorous analysis and higher order thinking. IB papers tend to be more straightforward.

Whichever you may be taking, economics is still economics at the end of the day and the basic theories, understanding and analyses are the same. Most importantly, it will be a very lucrative learning journey for your future!

Oh come on, many students tell me they love my lessons and that the lessons are totally different from what they experienced in school…

I don’t lecture… that’s not my style. If you read many of my students’ testimonials, you will learn that lessons are highly interactive and engaging, entertaining at times etc…not lecture style! 🙂

I also do not cover content like in school. As mentioned under my Methodology, my lessons are not meant to replace school, but to supplement and build a better and deeper understanding. I also focus on training application skills and bridging the gap between theory and application. This is the higher-value added stuff that I provide.

Students must still see it as their responsibility to learn the basics from school. After all, why attend school? If I were to spend the time, just running through definitions and theoretical facts…there won’t be enough time to cover the more difficult, higher value added stuff.

Having said that, there will of course be coverage of content – to deepen understanding rather than stating basic facts. Economics Concept Videos such as those posted on the website as well as our IB & A Level Economics Study Guides & Model Essays will also enable students to efficiently revise basic facts and build understanding.

Just Singapore?!

Over the years, I have had students from the UK and other parts of the world. Orders for my economics books flow in from Europe, China and elsewhere. So please do not limit me to Singapore! 🙂

I don’t really know if I am the best, I also don’t really know if there is such a thing as the best, but one thing I know is that many students say I have been their best. You can read up their testimonials to have a better idea. Every year, a handful come to me after being with another economics tutor. So I continue to focus on being their best and most importantly, getting even better! I make sure I improve on what I do every year!

For a complete 10 mark essay answer to your question, please read: Best Economics Tuition or Tutor in Singapore?

Years ago, after requests by some parents, Mr Kelvin Hong started GP tuition. Lo and behold, student went from U to As! Today, we run 1 and only 1 GP class weekly. Our GP Tuition Programme is unlike others. It is specially tailored for economics students and each class only runs fortnightly. We provide an effective and efficient pathway to Ace Your GP and Economics. 🙂

Most schools move much faster than I do. I intentionally move at a slower pace. Some parents and students may not appreciate this, because that means we may not have finished covering a topic that students may be tested on in their mid-year exams. Fortunately, many students appreciate my pace because they know they are finally understanding stuff! Slow and steady, win the race! My pace is closer to RI’s, which is actually slower paced than most schools! We wonder why!

Yes, the student will be given a make-up credit and should arrange for the make-ups in coordination with Admin. We do not encourage frequent make-ups as that tends to disrupt the student’s learning. Every student will be given 3 Free Make-Up arrangements per quarter. Exceeding that, an admin fee of $30 applies.

I can!!! But I cannot guarantee that my guarantee will be guaranteed. 🙂

How to guarantee la…If I do, I will be creating a moral hazard problem (part of the A Level H2 Economics Syllabus)! Students will now study less! It’s is not going to work. Technology has not advanced so rapidly that I can successfully disguise myself and be in many schools at the same time, taking the examinations while my students are in my classroom waiting anxiously.

However, if the student does everything I tell him/her to do, I can almost guarantee it!

Uhm…who is your friend? Is he/she an economics tutor?

In some years, I am shockingly accurate and…in some years, not so. Mr Hong’s end of year Practice Exams are exclusively for my own students ie those who have slogged with me over the months and years.

If you are relying on this to score…don’t! Work harder! There is no short-cut to success! In one of the years, what I predicted for the Case study was stunningly identical to the actual exams. But there was a question that was slightly different…and the slight difference mattered a lot. Imagine if you merely rote learned the answers…A student just told me that she was not going to revise anything else except take my Practice Exams. I told her not to sign up.

Of course, I am not cheap! I am also straight and married.

Well, you can look for other tutors charging lower fees…but will that cost you or your child more in the end?

For those in genuine need of financial assistance, please let us know how we could help. We have assisted several students over the years. Please make sure it’s a genuine need. Naturally, we will need some details to be furnished.

By the way, though not cheap, our group tuition fees are also not the most expensive! Check out our post for more information on tuition fees in Singapore.

No! I do attract quite a fair bit of RI and HCI students, but my student pool is actually highly diversified. Read our students’ testimonials. There are also those from TPJC, SRJC, YJC, JJC, MI and others. They have done very well, even better than some RI and HCI students. I will not take all the credit. They have put in tremendous work to achieve those results.

There are many benefits to learning economics. Learning economics allows one to pick up critical thinking and evaluation skills, which will be useful in analysing examination questions from various perspectives.

Learning economics in Singapore also enables one to make better decisions in terms of opportunity cost and marginal analysis. Learning economics is key to becoming a successful entrepreneur, manager or business consultant. Read more about the benefits of learning economics here.

Choosing the right economics tutor is important as it is a costly investment for yourself or your children. Careful research on the tutor’s academic background, relevant experiences and the level of quality the tutor deliver for the economics tuition is crucial. Read the blog post for more insights a and a step by step guide!

You might be wondering, is economics tuition really necessary? Economics is a very new subject and most students undertaking it, has to understand the concepts of it within 2 years.

Economics is important to understand real-world concepts however due to the nature of the subject it is harder for students to relate to as there are not in the working force yet. Hence, attending economics tuition is key to understanding the concepts of economics within the time limit imposed in school.
