Special Features of our Economics Tuition: Study Practice Programme with Simon
We believe in studying by writing out your learning through doing questions and not by reading the answers given by guidebooks and notes as one can never remember everything just by writing and regurgitating your answer from a model essay or CSQ answering paper. No questions from an examination like GCE A level will be repeated and the way of questioning will vary from year to year. With this learning concern in mind, we put forward this Study Practice Programme with Simon with the following areas of emphasis.
Practices make perfect. We believe in making our students understand and correct their errors with these practices as they will learn to reflect from the practices with the questions that we give and make comparison to their answers. In the process, learn to reflect and improve their competency and proficiency.
Progressive monitoring for development. The class practices are given to our students based on their learning pace and junior college pace of study as this will make them able to be more prepare for school examination. At the same time, we design class practices based on our students’ level of knowledge to ensure that they will progress at conducive level to be ready for GCE A level examination.
Adaption to examination. Our class practices are also designed to prepare our students more adaptive to examination as we time-trial the practices and set variants to make it exam-oriented. We make each practices a learning step to make them understand more about the examination in GCE A level and raise their proficiency in the answering and writing skills. Going through these practices will reduce their errors, improve their adaption to examination and raise their skills for examination.
