Our Economics Tuition guides you to academic success

Being a JC Economics and GP tutor for the past twenty years, I am glad to say that I have guided many students to attain academic excellence in their GCE A level examination for Economics and General Paper. The Economics and General Paper tuition provided by this centre gives my students a very structural and efficient learning strategy that assures them Grade A as long as they put in efforts in their studies. More important than this, I am also glad that I have given valuable advices to further their careers and nurture their resilience towards learning difficulties which I feel proud to be the educator that nurture the intellectuals of the future.

What students must know to score Grade A for JC Economics

Over the past years, GCE A level examination has become more difficult and complex as Junior colleges adopt a new learning approach by ‘Teaching Less, Learn More’ whereby the JCs will only teach the framework of the content but the depth of learning is to be explored and developed by the students. Furthermore, as questions tested are more complex and integrated, I understand why JC students are finding it difficult to study for JC Economics and achieve distinction for Economics. As this is a new subject to many JC students, a good understanding of the subject and what students need to pay attention to will be helpful in their studies towards this subject.

Content of teaching in H1 and H2 Economics

There is not much different in the content of teaching for H1 and H2 Economics as the chapters that are covered in H2 and not in H1 are the chapters on Cost of Production and Market Structures, Income and Cross Elasticity, Price Floor and for Microeconomics and National Income Determination for Macroeconomics. Although some may claim that the questions being tested are simple and direct, the contextual knowledge is still the same, requiring students to understand empirical knowledge of diverse economy in the world and apply economics concepts to the contexts of the questions.

Students will also attempt only one essay question instead of three questions as required in H2 Economics and the question tested is also quite direct and seldom in the analytical and evaluation form of question. Nonetheless, there are only two questions for the student to choose one question from two given questions and this will mean that it is harder to spot questions for the examination.

How should JC students study for this subject

It is not easy to get Grade A for Economics but it is possible and reasonably achievable task if JC students have a good study plan and embark on it diligently.

First, it is important for students to have a good set of notes that is explanatory and easy to remember such that students can use them to apply to the requirements of the questions for essay writings and case study. The study notes must have definitions, process explanation on economic concepts and policies, well-illustrated graphical illustrations, analytical and evaluation points on economic issues and impacts.

Second, JC students must create a list of essay practices and case study questions that will train their abilities to adapt to the variation of the questions tested in their school examination and the actual GCE A level examination. JC students must ensure that their sample essays and case study practices have evaluation remarks about the questions and the errors they have made and how they can improve on them.

Third, JC students must nurture their essay writing skills and case study answering techniques to enable them answer effectively under examination constraints. The proficiency of writing and thinking must be developed to the competent level where students are able to think reflectively, apply effectively, explain orderly and evaluate critically to the requirements of the context of the questions. This is the gist of Economics and students need to develop this skill in them.

Know more about our Economics Tuition

At Economics Focus, our tuition programme is different from many other tuition centres as we are not only exam-oriented in our approach of teaching, we are also enriching-focused because we believe in the cultivation of learners who are rational thinkers, capable of applying their economics knowledge and critical skills in their future work.

Skills-nurturing Approach of Learning

Being skill-oriented in our teachings, we expose students students to real economic issues to stimulate their interests and passion towards this subject which we believe is of great importance to an individual in their future. Besides, the discussion of this issue through online learning will shape their capacity to think and write faster and effectively in their comprehension and answering of the questions in the examination.

Exam-oriented as we strive for A

Being exam-oriented in our teaching, we ensure that our students are exposed to a wide variety of questions which will cover a wide angle discussion of the chapters that are tested in the GCE A level examination for Economics. We provide a very structured and organized approach of study where quick notes on each chapters with clear and easy and memorized content are set, sample essays with thinking structures are given and answers on case study questions with thinking process listed are prepared for students to improve their adaptability to the complexity in studying Economics at JC level.

Competent Learners, Rational Thinkers, Prolific Writer

We also ensure that a variety of classroom discussion and practices are conducted during our lessons as these class activities will overcome the weaknesses of students in time management in examination and nurture their independent thinking and writing skills. Over the years, many students who are weak in their essay writing and case study answering have improved tremendously as they practise more, enabling them to think and write faster and more independently.
