Share your tuition experience at Economics Focus

I enjoyed the elaborate discussions by Mr Simon relating to the applications of Economics. For example, he explained how we can understand the policies used by different big and small countries based on the shifting comparative advantage in this Age of Globalization.

What were the study-related challenges that you encountered during your A Level studies? How did Economics Focus aid you in overcoming these challenges?

During my studies, time, or rather lack thereof, has been a major obstacle for me. I spent too little time on studying. Instead, I used most of my free time on sports and other recreational activities. Having joined Economics Focus, I have learnt to organize and compartmentalise each activity in manageable blocks across the day. As such, Mr Simon has taught me to develop effective time management skills that enabled me to find time for both studies and leisure.
