Oh come on, many students tell me they love my lessons and that the lessons are totally different from what they experienced in school…

I don’t lecture…thats not my style. If you read many of my students’ testimonials, you will learn that lessons are highly interactive and engaging, entertaining at times etc…not lecture style! 🙂
I also do not cover content like in school. As mentioned under my Methodology, my lessons are not meant to replace school, but to supplement and build a better and deeper understanding. I also focus on training application skills and bridging the gap between theory and application. This is the higher-value added stuff that I provide.

Students must still see it as their responsibility to learn the basics from school. After all, why attend school? If I were to spend the time, just running through definitions and theoretical facts…there won’t be enough time to cover the more difficult, higher value added stuff.
Having said that, there will of course be coverage of content – to deepen understanding rather than stating basic facts. Videos such as those posted on on the website as well as our Study Guides will also enable students to efficiently revise basic facts and build understanding.

Just Singapore?!

Over the years, I have had students from UK and other parts of the world. Orders for my books flow in from Europe, China and elsewhere. So please do not limit me to Singapore! 🙂

I don’t really know if I am the best, I also don’t really know if there is such a thing as the best, but one thing I know is that many students say I have been their best. You can read up the testimonials to have a better idea. Every year, a handful come to me after being with another economics tutor. So I continue to focus on being their best and most importantly, getting even better! I make sure I improve on what I do every year!

Years ago, after persuasion by some parents, I did lend some help on GP. Lo and behold, they produced As! But seriously, I really have no time for that now. I specialise in Economics and in Economics, we also learn that specialisation can help us to get better and better. 🙂
Most schools move much faster than I do. I intentionally move at a slower pace. Some parents and students may not appreciate this, because that means we may not have finished covering a topic that students may be tested on in their mid-year exams. Fortunately, many students appreciate my pace because they know they are finally understanding stuff! Slow and steady, win the race! My pace is closer to RI’s, which is actually slower paced than most schools! We wonder why!
Yes, the student will be given a make-up credit and should arrange for the make-ups in coordination with Admin. We do not encourage frequent make-ups as that tends to disrupt the student’s learning. Every student will be given 3 Free Make-Up arrangements per quarter. Exceeding that, an admin fee of $30 applies.
I can!!! But I cannot guarantee that my guarantee will be guaranteed. 🙂

How to guarantee la…If I do, I will be creating a moral hazard problem (part of the Economics Syllabus)! Students will now study less! It’s is not going to work. Technology has not advanced so rapidly that I can successfully disguise myself and be in many schools at the same time, taking the examinations while my students are in my classroom waiting anxiously.

However, if the student does everything I tell him/her to do, I can almost guarantee it!

Uhm…who is your friend? Is he/she an economics tutor?

In some years, I am shockingly accurate and…in some years, not so. Mr Hong’s end of year Practice Exams are exclusively for my own students ie those who have slogged with me over the months and years.

If you are relying on this to score…don’t! Work harder! There is no short-cut to success! In one of the years, what I predicted for Case study was stunningly identical to the actual exams. But there was a question that was slightly different…and the slight difference mattered alot. Imagine if you merely rote learned the answers…A student just told me that she was not going to revise anything else except take my Practice Exams. I told her not to sign up.

Of course, I am not cheap! I am also straight and married.

Well, you can look for other tutors charging lower fees…but will that cost you or your child more in the end?

For those in genuine need of financial assistance, please let us know how we could help. We have assisted several students over the years. Please make sure it’s a genuine need. Naturally, we will need some details to be furnished.

No! I do attract quite a fair bit of RI and HCI students, but my student pool is actually highly diversified. Read the student testimonials. There are also those from TPJC, SRJC, YJC, JJC, MI and others. They have done very well, even better than some RI and HCI students. I will not take all the credit. They have put in tremendous work to achieve those results.
