About The Economics Tutor

Founded by Kelvin Hong in 1998, The Economics Tutor is one of the leading economics tuition in Singapore. We provide a comprehensive program to guide students in understanding complex economic concepts and applying them through case study analyses, essay writing and discussion of real world events.

For 24 years, the way we teach JC Economics Tuition (A Level Economics Tuition) and IB Economics Tuition classes helped learners appreciate economics and everything it entails on a much larger scale. We take things step-by-step, implement effective techniques in memorising frameworks and give every student the chance to nurture their ideas. 

We don’t just solely focus on helping you get stellar grades and perfect scores. We make sure that we also hone the critical thinking skills and investment / business decisions you can use outside the four walls of your classroom.

  1. If tuition is enjoyable, can’t it become an event to look forward to? Knowledge acquisition can be an exciting and engaging process!

  2. I think it depends on the student’s purpose for learning .. if students learn with the goal of getting good grades alone, then it is likely that they will not retain or put to good use what they have learnt.. but if they are able to see value in the knowledge that are about to gain and that learning, in itself, can be fun , then it is less likely that all those learning from school / tuition classes will be gone to waste…

      Why is it that most seem to just be learning to get the grade? Instead of really plugged into the larger purpose of learning and also having fun and joy in the process.

      Fortunately, most of my students (seem to) enjoy my classes. And I frequently remind them that the greater value is the honing of their thinking skills and not the economics.

    2. I agree. and it’s about strengthening a multi displinary outlook of the world. Tuition provides the space and expertise for a deeper engagement of affairs that arguably a teacher in class cannot afford, due to time constraints.

  3. Yes this is largely what childhood for a growing majority looks like. Even though one may argue that tuition can be enjoyable depending on a student’s outlook on learning, you still have to agree that the primary focus of students and their parents now is on academics and attaining good grades. Nowhere on that conveyor belt does it mention anything a child is interested in, like playing with friends or doing something they are passionate about. The over focus on academic grades for students and the spoon-feeding of information may be limiting a child’s ability to truly explore their passions (hence the cage). Maybe the focus should be turned to finding a child’s passion and using that as a motivating factor for working hard in school.
