Mr Hong is a very dedicated tutor. He would update me about my son's progress and would advise me on how best to help him improve. As the A levels approached, he conducted more classes and was willing to have 1-1 sessions so that the tuition would be more effective. Thank you for helping Tim!

Best Economics Tutor…Made Me a Better Person

Brandon Ho (ACJC) (From U to A!)
Click to Read More!

When I first signed up for Mr Hong’s economics lessons, I initially doubted that anything could help to improve my economics, what with my unsatisfactory grade of U for promotional examinations. I was proven wrong on the first day of his lessons. His use of dramatic sounds livened up the lessons and I found myself eager for more. I could not bear to miss even one lesson as I wanted to enjoy every minute of his extraordinary teachings. His constructive feedbacks and concise teachings made me understand economics and its mechanisms almost instantaneously. He also builds close rapport with students which allows students to internalise his lessons more effectively. Even after I felt that I had understood everything, he did not stop there, and taught more values to economics and its application in real world. During his lessons, I savoured all knowledge he has imparted to us, not only for the improvement in my grades, but also for making me a better person in today’s competitive world driven by demand and supply. Results also show themselves quickly. My grade jumped from U to B immediately in the next test. I am proud to say I achieved a stellar grade of A for GCE ‘A’ Levels for economics of which I once never dared to dream. I strongly recommend his lessons but I have to admit one has to work hard and practice to utilise his teachings effectively. Thank you Mr Hong for being my best Economics teacher!

Mr Hong was able to help pull my results up from the 15th percentile all the way to the 80th percentile

MMr Hong was able to help pull my results up from the 15th percentile all the way to the 80th percentile of the school within a few months, and eventually an A for A-levels. The economics department in schools usually teach economics through lectures and tutorials where teachers rush through the syllabus, leaving students lost and confused. Mr Hong uses mindmaps as well as easy methods to help us remember and understand topics of economics much easier. He also teaches us techniques to answering questions rather than the standard answers that teachers teach in school so as to tackle different type of questions. Thank you Mr Hong for your guidance.

Although I only attended Mr Hong’s Econs tuition for less than a year, my grades still improved greatly as I benefited from his style of not focusing excessively on textbook knowledge but instead, focusing on the skills required to tackle essays and case studies. Mr Hong has an extensive knowledge on the subject and provides a lot of reading resources. He also encourages us to go beyond the syllabus by giving us useful pieces of information here and there to supplement our knowledge.


Great Teacher. Where my true Economics Education took place

Rozalin Mohanty, VJC

I want to say a very big thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help in the last 1.5 years. You're a really great teacher and I can say that my true economics education took place during your classes, not during lectures in school. You have that rare 'X factor' presentation style that simply compels me to pay attention and absorb everything you say. It's not something many teachers have and I can see that you put in a lot of effort into preparing for lessons. Your lessons have inspired me to explore careers in the financial sector such as stock market investing and finance which I would otherwise perhaps never considered 2 years back.


Wonderful teacher. No student is left behind. Uses many analogies to teach difficult concepts.

Mr Hong is a wonderful teacher, who ensures that every student is not left behind. He makes sure that the concepts are clarified and uses many analogies to teach difficult concepts. Also, through timed assignments, he sees to that we are able to answer the questions under time pressure. Moreover, Mr Hong tells us and slowly, through constant practice, he makes sure that we are able to tackle various questions. Thanks to his guidance and commitment, I was able to move from getting C and D grades in my assignments to an A in both the preliminary examinations and the A-levels. Thank you so much for all the dedicated work!!

Hi Mr Hong! Thank you so much for helping me get an A for H1 Econs! Even though I flunked my way through JC, you continued to encourage me and push me to do better! I think all the extra essays and case studies you gave us really helped a lot, especially when you go through the model answers in depth during class, with all the extra annotations, etc. If not for your lessons , I would still have struggled through JC ! Once again, really thankful for all your help.

Teaching Style Highly Effective. Constant Appraisals.

I find Mr Hong's teaching style highly effective at imparting us with the most essential key points for answering questions. Unlike other teachers, his methods are example-driven; he lays out the basic foundations first before building upon it with adequate contextual examples. His constant appraisals and reminders to work hard have also fuelled our interest in Economics and encouraged us to do our best. I have gained a greater understanding and appreciation of economics as a result. Thank you Mr Hong!

Mr Hong tuition has worked wonders in my understanding of economics. He is very knowledgeable on the syllabus and has more than sufficient materials which helped me greatly. Practise does make perfect. Under Mr Hong's guidance I have moved from getting U/S grades to a B grade in my assignments, and eventually an A for the A-levels. Mr Hong's teaching methods are very effective and easy to understand regardless of your current standard in economics. I would definitely recommend Mr Hong as a tutor to anyone who is serious about scoring in economics.

Gerry Zhang, RJC

I enjoyed Mr Hong’s classes very much as he is very engaging and interesting. He often challenges us to speak up and answer his questions so that he can correct our conceptual errors and refine the points that we have. Before attending his classes, my issue was that I often ran out of time in school exams as I tend to be very long-winded in writing my points, resulting in my poor economics grades. Under his tutelage, I was able to sharpen my writing and get straight to the point. Thank you Mr Hong!

He is also patient, willing to take time out to meet up with you one on one to address any issues you have with the content.

Because of Mr Hong, I can answer Any Economics Question. Best Teacher in all my 12 years of Education.

Samuel Tay, HCI

When I was in school, I had never passed Econs. However, Mr Hong brought me from a U to an A. Suffice to say that in my 12 years of education, Mr Hong is the best teacher I have ever had. His wealth of knowledge on real-world economic situations has proved invaluable, allowing him to broaden our horizons and take learning far beyond the mundane confines of the textbook. This additional knowledge has provided me with the cutting edge to stand out amongst my peers, allowing me to produce essays that not only explain economic concepts but also apply them appropriately in context. In the backdrop of an A-level examination system that has come to value additional knowledge and personal evaluation, Mr Hong certainly gives us the added advantage needed to score that coveted A! Furthermore, the concise, clear and step-by-step approach he undertakes in his lessons make his lessons very understandable. His teaching methodology enables an extremely clear and efficient method of illuminating core economic concepts. This has gone a long way to aid my own understanding, equipping me with all the core skills necessary to answer every kind of economic question that may arise. Gone are the days of routine memorizing. Because of Mr Hong, I can answer any question that comes my way! Mr Hong also provides quality notes and assignments from his wealth of experience. As exams approach, he holds Practice exams that prepares us for exam conditions, allowing us to score better under timed conditions. In the recent A-level examinations, Mr Hong even accurately predicted the case study questions! Because of Mr Hong, I now have an A for Economics and am even considering taking Economics in University. He turned my worst subject into my best subject! Thank you, Mr Hong!

Mr Kelvin Hong is an exceptional tutor. He takes the time during class to explain simple and difficult Economic concepts in depth to ensure that we understand the concepts fully, allowing us to clarify any doubts or misconceptions we may have. Beyond working on a solid foundation, he also provides us with additional Economics knowledge, and tips and tricks that could aid us in our examinations, enabling us to write more rigorous and extensive economics essays. His friendliness, approachability and hard work extends beyond the classroom, from tirelessly marking and reading through essays that we would write without his prompt, to answering the many questions we have for him through text, to even finding useful external resources for us to read and enrich our Economics proficiency. His dedication to his students had helped me improve greatly in Economics and achieve an A at the A Level Examinations, just as I’m sure it has for many of his students!

Great Economics Tuition. Made Economics so Clear, Interesting and Easy

Mrs Ho, Brandon’s mother
Click to Read More!

My son did not do well for his promotional examination and was asked to drop from 4H2 to 3H2 and 1H1. Economics being his weakest of all his H2 subjects was the victim. Fortunately, my colleague recommended Mr Hong to me. After only 2 lessons, he came back and tell me that he never believed that there were such great teachers until he met Mr Hong. Within a year, he went from grad “U” to “A” in his recent A-level exam. In fact, Mr Hong made economics so clear and interesting for him that he even considered to read Economics in University. Because Mr Hong made Economics so easy for him, he has more time to concentrate on the other subjects. He went on to score As for all his subjects. Besides being a great teacher, Mr Hong is also a friend to my son. I really respect his professionalism, help and guidance he has given to my son. My only regret is that I only found out about Mr Hong when my son is JC2, otherwise I believe even at H2 level, I believe he can do well too.

His style of Teaching and Skills and Techniques to ace economics. also highly beneficial timed practices.

Lau Shu Qing, AJC
Click to Read More!

Fortunately, under Mr Hong, i was able to brush up on the skills and techniques to ace economics. I think what was extremely helpful was his style of teaching and learning, and that each tuition session was limited to a handful of students.This ensured that every student will have an opportunity to voice their thoughts about a question posed and if there were any misconceptions, he would address it right away, benefiting the other students who could learn from the mistake of others. His timely time practices before major examinations in school and also before the A levels were also helpful in allowing our minds to adjust to exam conditions so that we could perform our best during exams. Without Mr Hong's help, I doubt I would be able to get A for economics so thank you Mr Hong

Helps us completely understand and overcome our weaknesses

Liz Wong, HCI
Click to Read More!

Mr Hong is a dedicated teacher who does detailed marking of every script I submitted, always giving comments and writing down key points I missed out. Such close reading and annotation by Mr Hong, followed by explanation in class definitely made every piece of work I submitted to him count, as I completely understand my mistakes. This allows me to be confident in tackling the same type of questions in the future. He also provides us with notes from various sources, from either textbooks or school notes, so that we can understand and learn from the best. These notes are an extremely important supplement to my school's notes. Nearer the examinations, Mr Hong also identifies areas we are weak in and helps us overcome these weaknesses by providing targeted exercises. For example, he produced pages of questions that tests concepts, as well as our ability to elaborate well so that we understand the rigor involved in explanation, and the details we need to score well. As an experienced teacher, he also attempts to spot questions after analyzing trends from prelim papers as well as past year A level questions. Exposure to this definitely improved our abilities and allowed us to better prepare for the A level examination.

I am very thankful and fortunate to have such a committed and patient Economics tutor that has helped me improve by leaps and bounds.

Joining Mr Hong’s Economics tuition was one of the best decisions I made in 2 years of JC

Wilson Lim, TJC
Click to Read More!

Thanks Mr Hong, your lessons are very effective!I can still remember that I was struggling with Econs like how many other schoolmates did for my June Common Test in JC1. I studied hard for it, but only managed to obtain a passing grade of E. Feeling desperate, I went to source for tuition. I asked around for good Econs tutors and I managed to chance upon Mr Hong’s webpage. Thinking back now, joining Mr Hong’s Economics tuition was one of the best decisions I made in 2 years of my JC. I looked through his profile and decided to go for a trial lesson in Bishan. Mr Hong’s way of teaching really caught my attention. He uses many questions to keep the class engaged. The most important thing was that his explanations were much clearer and easier to understand compared to school lecturers who just merely went through the lecture notes. What I especially liked about his lessons was that he always kept us thinking of different possible ways of answering questions and how we can improve our answers and even improve the schools’ answer scheme. Practice makes perfect. This is clearly evident in Mr Hong’s lessons as we are given tonnes of CSQ and essay practice questions, coupled with timed assignments and tests to further prepare ourselves for the exams. After which, he would then mark our answers and provide important critiques and comments on how we can polish up our answers to improve from a level 2 to a level 3. He also often reminds us on the common misconceptions students tend to make so that we will be more cautious during the exams not to repeat those mistakes. Finally, I really want to say a big thank you to Mr Hong as I could not have achieved an A for Econs without his tutoring. Not just that, he actually ignited my interest for economics and I really enjoyed his lessons very much. Thank you Mr Hong!

My experiences in Mr Hong's lessons have been very enjoyable and enriching. Every lesson, he pushes us to think and work hard for the answer and furthermore, he provides different perspectives for each question we encounter. He also never fails to clarify our misconceptions quickly and ensures that we understand what is being taught by providing us with regular assignments and even arranges tests for us to use our knowledge and check our understanding of the topic. Mr Hong has definitely helped me gain confidence in scoring my distinctions for economics in school and finally helped me get my A in the A Levels.

Mr Hong knew our strengths and weaknesses very well. His personalised approach was the key difference between him and other tutors my friends had .

Clara Li, HCJC

My friend and I took Econs lessons from Mr Hong from December 2010 to September 2011. I never regretted it and I'm sure that I wouldn't have received an A grade in Econs at the A levels, if not for his lessons. I started out with a D grade in JC1. What I especially liked about his lessons was that he adapted them to suit us. I think that personal attention was the key difference between him and other tutors my friends had. Mr Hong knew our strengths and weaknesses very well, and highlighted them clearly to us. He would prepare his own notes to help us beef up in the areas we were weak in. So instead of implementing a "blanket syllabus" for all his students, he specifically targeted those concepts and techniques we couldn't grasp. Mr Hong also always returned our essays with very thorough individual feedback - which were absolutely invaluable in helping us to improve. Finally, it wasn't like he just talked and we listened (which I initially expected and dreaded). There was two-way interaction and actual engagement, because we felt free to interrupt and ask relevant questions anytime we didn't understand.


Small class provided ample opportunities to ask and answer questions. Quickly improved my conceptual understanding and answering techniques.

I was doing very badly in Economics when I first came to Mr Hong in J2 and Economics was my least favorite subject. But with Mr Hong's clear explanations and frameworks I soon learned to appreciate the subject a lot more and started scoring much better in my tests and examinations! The classes are small and this allows for Mr Hong to interact more with all his pupils, and this also means that we as pupils all get ample opportunities to answer and ask questions. I first started out disliking having to answer his questions in class as I did not know the answers to most of them, but I soon realised that his questions really forced us to think on the spot, which is an essential skill during an Economics exam where questions may be unfamiliar and time is very limited. This helped me to quickly improve my conceptual understanding of Economics as well as improve on my answering techniques. He also gave us assignments and puts in the time to give us detailed feedback on how we can improve. With Mr Hong's expert tutoring I eventually managed to score an A at the A levels! Thank you so much Mr Hong! "
