Empowering lives. Enriching minds.
The Rational Thinking Methodology represents the guiding principle of Economics Focus, in which students will learn reflectively, apply effectively, and review critically. In this process, Simon imparts students with the essential thinking, writing and application skills to poise students for the rigours of the Economics examination.
Simon is an engaging tutor, who motivates students to approach Economics positively, especially for those students who are weaker in the subject and lack the confidence to overcome their obstacles in learning. Simon acknowledges the frictional process of learning and provides step-by-step approach to overcome it.
Simon’s passion and determination for the mastery of Economics has influenced many students to do the same. He stresses the need to enrich the minds of students as the passion for learning is a pivotal factor that builds up mental resilience to surmount obstacles for educational and personal development.
As one of the pioneer Economics tutors, Simon has developed an exam-oriented teaching programme that benefited many students to excel at their studies. For the past 20 years, Simon’s role as a lecturer and tutor for A Level Economics has been instrumental in building up the knowledge and skills of students.
In addition to Economics Focus, Simon also conducts GP tuition for students who are in preparation for A Level General Paper. His teaching programme comprises of content enrichment, via issue-based discussion of GP topics, as well as skill-based development, which features GP essay writing and comprehension answering skills.
During his teaching journey, Simon has conceived the idea of extending the learning pathways of former students as they gear up for career-specific challenges. As such, Simon has developed the Student Internship Programme with his related companies to educate students beyond the classroom.
The Internship Programme serves as a useful platform for students to apply the thinking and writing skills gained from Simon’s tuition programmes, particularly in the conduct of business and commercial activities. In this process, Simon cultivates the entrepreneurial spirit of students as they are exposed to industry-specific challenges.
In view of the increasingly complex and globalized world, Simon advocates the development of three aspects: language, IT and problem-solving skills. During the Internship Programme, students will learn to build up these skills as they become professionals of a knowledge-based economy in the near future.
