Kelvin Hong, Founder of The Economics Tutor

With over 23 years of economics tuition in Singapore, I’ve taught over hundreds of  JC A Level Economics & IB Economics classes face to face & online.

“Why do I choose to be an economics tutor?”, you may wonder.

I believe every student should have the opportunity to learn economics very well and in the process develop critical thinking skills as well as entrepreneurial and investment acumen for their careers and lives!

"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!"
Samuel Tay
Private Candidate
"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."
Estelle Tan
"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."

"I was really bad at economics when I first joined the lessons - in fact I was the lowest in my class. But Mr Hong has a lot of resources, practices and samples which helped to drill in various concepts and keywords."

Frequently Asked Questions When It Comes To Economics Tuition In Singapore

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 Guide to JC A Level Economics in Singapore.

IB and A Level Economics cover very similar topics – roughly 85% overlapping. The big 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.

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 persuasion by some parents, I did lend some help to GP. Lo and behold, they produced As! But seriously, I really have no time for that now. I specialise in Economics and in Economics, we also learn that specialisation can help us to get better and better. 🙂

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.
