The Path to Distinction

CHARGE UP YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF ECONOMICS KNOWLEDGE

Economics is a content-based and concept-based subject. Understanding is Key. Mr Hong helps students build a rock solid foundation in Economics. His real-life experiences as a Government policy-maker and successful entrepreneur has enabled many students to understand Economics at a level that others are unable to deliver. Government Policies and Business Decisions are very critical aspects of the current Economics syllabuses.

LEARN STUDY & SCORING TIPS AND TECHNIQUES

Beyond the knowledge foundation, students need exam-smart scoring techniques to tackle the exams and gain an edge. Teaching is left to the schools. Mr Hong trains, coaches and nurtures students to truly Enjoy, Understand and Apply Economics. Learn these strategies from Mr Hong, a top student all his life. His stellar credentials and decades of tutoring experience wins the admiration of many students.

PRACTICE & TESTS

Practice makes perfect. Mr Hong directs students to undertake regular assignments and specially crafted tests in order to build exam-readiness. Each assignment is meticulously marked for students to learn from their errors. Students are encouraged to explore and apply their Economics knowledge to their own lives, drawing on Mr Hong’s rich real-life experiences.

INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION

Our expertise in providing Economics tuition dates back to 1998, and we realised the Mini Group (3-5pax) is the most ideal to spur students on and also provide a platform for more thinking and discussion. As such, Mr Hong’s group classes are intentionally kept small for tracking of each individual’s improvement. Assignments are also highly customised to train up each student in their individual areas of weaknesses.
“Mr Hong has been a great mentor. Despite the many gaps in my learning, he guided me thoroughly and helped fill in these gaps. In class, he does not give us answers directly, but guides us in our thinking and leads us to them. This has been a major factor in my success at the ‘A’ level examination. Moreover, the additional materials he provides are much clearer and substantial in concept explanation and understanding. Without his help, I would not have been able to jump from an S in promos to an A in ‘A’ levels.”

– Xue Min, YJC

“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!”

– Samuel Tay, HCI

“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.”

“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!”

– Vint Seng, RJC

“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!!”

Priyanka Srikanth, TPJC

“Mr Hong is an exceptional teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed his lessons as he was very detailed in his explanations, providing examples that made seemingly foreign theories and concepts very applicable to the real world. He also encouraged us to think further by asking challenging questions and providing extensions of the topics in discussion. Economics hence began to make sense and I started to understand and appreciate what I learnt, fueling my interest in the subject. Because of Mr Hong, the subject I hated most turned into the one I now enjoy and have substantial interest in. Thank you Mr Hong!”
