 How does Economics Tuition with Tutor City’s home tutor solve the struggles students face?

Many students struggle with economics without tuition 

Many students encountered Economics for the first time in JC or IBDP and being a new subject, they might struggle to grasp the concepts on their own or apply the wrong learning approach. 

A-levels and IBDP Economic assessments have moved beyond mere knowledge retention and regurgitation of memorised information during exams. Instead, your child needs to display “higher order” Economics skills such as evaluation, synthesis, application and analysis during assessments to achieve good grades. On top of that, your child needs to be sharp and provide quality answers that directly address the exam questions. 

We have identified the most common challenges faced by students and our Economic tutors have adopted tailored teaching approaches to address them effectively. 


  • Struggling to keep up with the fast pace of the school's Economics curriculum
  • Experiencing a lack of interest in Economics, leads to difficulties in staying focused
  • Facing challenges in analysing case studies effectively
  • Struggling with grasping basic and complex economic concepts
  • Finding it difficult to memorise the extensive content covered in JC/IB Economics syllabus
  • Struggling with time management during exams and assignments
  • Facing challenges in understanding which response to include for accurate answers during exams
  • Not knowing the correct exams revision approach for Economics
  • Difficulty in interpreting and analysing economic data
  • Lack of critical thinking skills required for evaluating economic theories and arguments
  • Challenges in understanding complex mathematical concepts and their applications in economics
  • Struggling to connect economic concepts with real-world examples and applications
  • Limited exposure to diverse economic perspectives and theories
  • Insufficient practice in constructing and interpreting economic graphs and diagrams
  • Difficulty in recognising and analysing economic interdependencies and relationships
  • Poor understanding of economic policy implications and their consequences
  • Challenges in integrating microeconomics and macroeconomics concepts effectively
  • Lack of familiarity with economic terminology and jargon
  • Struggling to synthesise and present cohesive arguments in written responses
  • Limited exposure to economic research methods and techniques.


Why Economics Home Tuition is Effective 

If your child has put in their best effort but feels that their improvement in Economics has plateaued, private Economics tuition can be a game-changer. Here's why:

1. Development of case study analysis skills: An Economics home tutor can help your child develop critical thinking and analytical skills required for case study analysis and apply them to real-world issues. Your child will receive tailored guidance to identify relevant economic concepts, evaluate options, and make sound decisions based on economic principles and apply them across different topics. 


2. Hone essay writing skills and techniques: Benefit from one-to-one Economic tuition where instantaneous constructive feedback and suggestions are provided by an Economic tutor to help your child identify the weakness in his or her essay, receive specific advice on writing techniques such as structuring essay, and argument development and reasoning based on evidence or examples. Remove fear and increase confidence in tackling challenging essay-based questions. 

3. Customised Economics learning materials: Experienced Economics tutors would have a wide range of resources from different schools. They can provide supplementary materials, such as practice papers, model answers, reading materials on current affairs, opinion pieces and reference books, to further enrich your child’s learning journey. These additional resources expose your child to diverse perspectives and enhance their overall understanding of Economics.

4. Effective learning strategies to conquer Economics content and concepts. An expert Economic tutor can break down complex Economic concepts for ease of understanding and help your child to see the interconnection between the various issues. Revision techniques such as dividing bigger topics into more manageable parts and using mnemonic devices and techniques to remember key Economic concepts and theories can facilitate better memory retention when sitting for exams.


5. Reduce the stress and anxiety of learning Economics by going at your child’s pace. Each tuition session is customised as the teaching method, pace and content are based on your child’s learning needs and comfort level. This personalised gives your child an enjoyable learning experience and they can absorb the learnings more effectively and with better clarity. 


6. Time management techniques. Time management is a common struggle for most students, particularly in the extensive JC Economics examination. Economics tutors can prioritise helping your child develop effective time management strategies. To tackle this challenge, Economic tutors engage students in practising past papers with timed sessions. This approach allows students to gauge their current pace and identify areas where they may be spending excessive time. The objective is for students to complete the examination comfortably within the allocated time, with ample opportunity for thorough paper review. Your child will receive invaluable tips, tricks, techniques, and tools that enable them to complete their exams efficiently. Your child can be assured of finishing their papers on time, granting them the necessary window to review and refine their answers before submission carefully.

7. Mentoring and advice. Economic tutors can assist students in making informed choices by offering guidance on subject selection and university pathways. They help students align their interests and aspirations with the right subjects, maximising their chances of admission to their desired university programs. Additionally, dedicated Economic tutors go beyond academic support by providing insights into career paths and equipping students with the good habits and mindset to succeed not just academically but also in all their future pursuits such as perseverance, goal-setting and managing productivity.

What is the importance of Economics Tuition? 

The majority of the students are exposed to Economics during their pre-university education, it is a useful and captivating subject that enhances students' comprehension of the real world and empowers them to make well-informed decisions concerning their lives and the society they inhabit.

In the Economics syllabus, students study important concepts such as supply and demand, prices and benefits which helps to explain the complexities of financial markets, business operations, policies and global economic issues. They will also learn about individual finances, including budgeting, saving, investing and financial decisions. 

However, another group of students may fail to grasp complex Economic concepts and see the interconnectedness between the different topics. This is common for students who have just entered JC and have not encountered the subject before. Through private Economics tuition, an experienced tutor can provide case studies, practical illustrations or real-world applications to enhance their understanding and clarify misconceptions. 

Some students struggle with essential Economic skills to do well in exams such as critical analysis, mathematical ability or essay writing ability. These are skills that are built up through using the correct methodological approach; for instance, to improve on essay writing, your child needs to know how he can structure his essay to score more points. Without an expert Economic tutor who can perform an analysis of the weaknesses and dispense the right advice to guide your child, it will be a challenging and lonely journey as he fumbles in the dark. 

MOE Economics Curriculum

In Singapore’s Junior Colleges, Economics is a humanities subject with three different levels of difficulty: H1, H2, and H3 Economics. H3 economics stands out as the highest level, designed for students who possess an exceptional interest in the subject. It offers them an opportunity to delve deeper into the intricacies of economics, nurturing their intellectual curiosity and ensuring their readiness for rigorous university courses in finance or business-related fields.

Why classroom time is simply not sufficient to score well in Economics exams

classroom economics tuition

When it comes to achieving excellent results in A-levels or IBDP Economics assessments, it's important to recognise that students need to invest significant time in nurturing and developing the essential skills mentioned above. 

Simply relying on practising past-year questions alone won't suffice, especially if your child has substantial gaps in Economics knowledge or lacks abilities such as formulating and expressing well-reasoned arguments in an essay.Take a look at the Economics syllabus and you will notice that there is a wide range of topics to cover within the school term. Since Economics is a complex subject with different theories, models and concepts which requires breadth and depth in knowledge, time in the classroom is simply not sufficient to delve deep into students’ learning. Sometimes students are told to catch up on the research and readings by themselves at home. If your child is not disciplined, he will easily fall behind. 

The issue for some students is that they feel completely overwhelmed by the amount of information and Economic content that they do not know how and where to start, nor do they know the important examinable concepts to prioritise their revision. Juggling the tremendous amount of homework and other A-level or IBDP subjects can cause extreme stress to your child. 

Hiring a private tutor for Economic tuition is like having a sherpa-mountain guide to assist one’s tremulous journey when conquering mountains. An Economic tutor provides expert guidance and personalised support to help your child navigate the complexities of the economics exam preparation journey, guiding your child to set goals, create study plans, impart techniques and motivate them along the way. Ultimately, your child will overcome his or her Economic learning challenges and emerge victorious at the mountain summit. 


Economics tutors in Singapore: The different profiles

best economics tutors

Are you familiar with the different categories of Economics home tutors in Singapore? Are you aware that each tutor profile has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages that can greatly impact your child's learning experience in Economics? To assist you in this task, below is an overview of the different tutor profiles and their strengths and weaknesses.

Full-time Economics Home Tutors

Similar to other working professionals, full-time tutors dedicate their careers to offering private lessons in Economics, often clocking over forty private tuition hours a week. They provide tuition to tertiary students of diverse abilities, educational backgrounds, and schools.

Full-time Economics tutors typically hold qualifications at the master’s or bachelor’s level such as degrees in Economics, Business and Finance or other related fields. Usually, full-time tutors have a strong understanding and familiarity with the subject such as Economics theories, concepts and principles either through their formal education and through their extensive experience tutoring students over the years. 

Besides content knowledge, full-time Economic tutors have accumulated effective tutoring techniques, lesson planning, and student assessment methods, allowing them to deliver their Economic private tuition lessons in a clear and engaging manner.

Advantages of Engaging Full-time Economics Home Tutors

Typically, full-time tutors can have a few years up to decades of teaching experience. This makes them very knowledgeable of the IBDP, Junior College and A-level syllabus including the materials to prepare for lessons.

Due to their familiarity with the syllabus, full-time Economics tutors can readily customise their teaching materials and approach to suit the unique learning styles of different students. Since they are full-time professional tutors, they usually possess good communication and interpersonal skills to establish rapport with your child. This establishes a conducive and supportive learning environment for your child. They are also able to convey complex economic concepts clearly and effectively since they have met many other students who will have the same questions and misconceptions as your child. 

Full-time Economics tutor will incorporate additional learning materials, this could include providing recommendations of Economics resources such as news articles, model essays, and academic journal readings for your child to strengthen their knowledge of current Economic affairs and issues. Since full-time Economics tutors rely on tutoring as their main source of income, they are highly dedicated and reliable when it comes to sticking to the tuition schedule. 

They also understand the significance of establishing a rapport with your child in a private tuition setting, and they are likely to continue to tutor your child as they progress through the academic levels. They are less likely to switch students frequently, recognising the importance of building a stable relationship with their tutees, this is important as learning Economics is progressive and it is greatly beneficial to have a tutor who is very familiar with your child’s abilities and habits.

Disadvantages of Engaging Full-time Economics Home Tutors

Full-time Economics home tutors typically command a higher hourly rate than their part-time counterparts. This arises from the wealth of expertise they accumulate through years of dedicated tutoring experience. 

In addition, they invested extra time in lesson planning, research, and selecting relevant Economics materials. Some even go the extra mile by creating their own exclusive worksheets and thought-provoking exam essay questions. These efforts contribute to the overall value they provide, justifying the higher rate for their comprehensive and tailored instruction.

Successful full-time Economics tutors are known for their impressive track record of delivering favourable outcomes and often face tuition scheduling constraints. Given the competition of parents to secure quality tutors for their children, these star tutors may have limited availability for parents to secure their preferred tuition slots. This is because they are committed to a regular group of students who continue to seek their expertise as they advance through the academic levels.

Working Professionals Economics Part-time tutors

Part-time Economics tutors often balance their tutoring responsibilities alongside a main full-time career, utilising home tuition as an additional income stream. These tutors hail from a range of educational backgrounds, bringing diverse perspectives to their teaching. Some may have previously taught full-time in Junior Colleges, International schools or tuition centres before transitioning to other professional pursuits.

Advantages of Engaging Part-time Economics Home Tutors Who Are Working Professionals

Opting for part-time tutors for Economics tuition can be a wise choice for parents seeking quality and cost-effective solutions within their tutoring budget. These tutors possess a unique blend of tutoring experience and academic qualifications, enabling them to deliver high-quality Economics lessons.

One significant advantage of engaging part-time Economics tutors is the affordability they offer compared to both Ministry of Education (MOE) tutors and full-time tutors. This helps alleviate the financial strain for families with multiple children or allows for better allocation of tuition fees, enabling students to receive lessons in other subjects as well.

Part-time Economics tutors share a common passion for the subject. This enthusiasm can have a positive impact on your child, igniting their interest in Economics. Tutors may engage students in discussions about real-world Economic affairs, providing real-life applications and fostering a deeper understanding.

Drawing from their professional experiences, these tutors can emphasise the significance of performing well in Economics. They can relate examples from their corporate lives, highlighting the importance of constructing persuasive arguments or decisions through the use of Economic data when presenting business recommendations and improvements. Such practical insights make the learning process more engaging, relevant, and enjoyable for students.

Some part-time tutors with more years of tutoring experience are well-versed with the school curriculum. Look out for part-time tutors that have received positive feedback and testimonials from their current or past students, demonstrating their effectiveness. 

Disadvantages of Engaging Part-time Economics Home Tutors Who Are Working Professionals

One limitation of part-time Economics tutors is their relatively less flexible schedule, as they juggle their tutoring commitments with their day job. This may result in the limited availability of tuition slots, which are usually offered after office hours on weekdays or during weekends. Due to their busy work schedules, rescheduling of lessons might happen sometimes. 

Part-time Economics tutors may need to collaborate closely with students to align their lessons with the specific learning objectives and Economics topics covered in their schools. Open communication with the tutor regarding the school's curriculum can help ensure that the tuition sessions are tailored to complement the ongoing school work. It's important to note that most part-time tutors do not possess formal teaching qualifications, and they may not always be updated with the latest changes in the syllabus or assessment requirements. 

However, this challenge can be addressed by maintaining regular communication with the tutor and providing them with relevant information about your child's schoolwork and the syllabus. By keeping them informed, the tutor can adjust their teaching approach and materials accordingly.

Student Economics Part-time Tutors

Economics tutors in this group consist of university students or individuals pursuing advanced degrees like masters or PhD programs. Their field of study is usually in Economics, Business and Finance. These tutors offer Economics tuition to supplement their income and benefit from a close age gap with their tutees. This results in a higher level of energy and enthusiasm in their teaching style.

Advantages of Engaging Part-time Economics Home Tutors Who Are Students

Economics student tutors offer the most cost-effective tuition fees compared to other tutor profiles. It is wrong to assume that student tutors provide subpar Economics lessons. Many of them choose to tutor part-time because they have achieved excellent grades in Economics during their A-levels, University education and possess Economics proficiency and skills, which they can impart to your child.

Their recent experience navigating Singapore's A-levels or IBDP education system and the stress of a high-stakes national exam make them more empathetic towards your child's feelings of anxiety and nervousness in mastering Economics. This enables them to quickly establish rapport with your child and provide both mentoring and emotional support throughout their learning journey.

This is especially valuable for students who struggle to communicate their difficulties to authority figures like teachers or parents. The student tutor can relate your child's concerns to the parent, enabling you to provide better support. Student tutors also offer greater flexibility in scheduling tuition lessons and makeup lessons can be easily arranged. Parents can take advantage of this flexibility by scheduling additional lessons with student tutors during school term breaks for Economics enrichment or to catch up with the syllabus.

Disadvantages of Engaging Part-time Economics Home Tutors Who Are Students

When considering student tutors, it's important to recognise that they lack formal teaching certification and that their average tuition experience typically ranges from one to four years.  With limited experience, some student tutors may not have encountered a wider variety of tutees and might have challenges in handling all types of students. Parents should carefully assess whether the selected student tutor's personality aligns well with their child's needs and provide regular feedback to ensure effective tutoring in Economics.

Student tutors may face tuition scheduling constraints due to exams, co-curricular activities (CCAs), or other obligations. It is important for parents to communicate in advance and be prepared for some flexibility when arranging Economics home tuition sessions with student tutors. To ensure reliability and trustworthiness, parents should consider engaging a reputable tuition agency that conducts a thorough screening and shortlisting of student tutors. This ensures that the tutors are genuinely committed to tutoring your child and that their qualifications and education history are valid.

MOE-Trained Economics Home Tutors

Economics home tutors in this category consist of two profiles: the MOE teachers who are currently teaching in schools or ex-MOE teachers who have left service and no longer teaching in schools. Tutors in this group are officially trained in NIE and are professionally certified teachers who have teaching experience in JCs. 

Advantages of Engaging MOE-Trained Economics Home Tutors

Tutors in this category are highly in-demand, as parents are willing to allocate a higher tuition budget to assist their struggling child in attaining the desired Economics grades and preventing further setbacks.

MOE-trained tutors possess extensive familiarity with the school syllabus and are subject matter experts. They possess in-depth knowledge of how the Economics curriculum and syllabus are designed and may even have experience in crafting examination papers and understanding the marking criteria. By leveraging their expertise, they can provide valuable guidance on key areas for your child to focus on, such as effective essay writing techniques to make their essays stand out among their peers. 

Furthermore, they are well-versed in teaching strategies to support weaker students and can impart practical techniques that can significantly improve your child's Economics grades within a relatively short timeframe. Their wealth of experience, having taught numerous students in classroom settings, contributes to their ability to deliver impactful instruction.

Disadvantages of Engaging MOE-Trained Economics Home Tutors

MOE-trained Economics tutors are in high demand due to their teaching qualifications and proven effectiveness, which often leads to them charging the highest tuition rates compared to all the other tutor profiles. 

The supply of current MOE-trained school tutors is limited due to new regulatory procedures implemented by the Singapore Public Service Division in 2021. These regulations stipulate that school teachers can only offer tuition if approved by their school principal and for valid reasons. It is challenging for MOE school teachers to be available for Economics home tuition, which contributed to their scarcity in the Economics tutoring market.


Different Types of Economics Tuition in Singapore

1. Economics tuition in the tuition centre

Economics tuition in a tuition centre can take place in either a large or small group setting, ranging from around 6 students to sometimes 30 or more. Students are typically required to travel to a physical location for tuition classes that follow a fixed schedule. I

Some tuition centres specialise solely in providing only Economics tuition and focus solely on the subject, allowing them to concentrate on curriculum development, effective teaching strategies, and tailored study materials, setting them apart from centres offering multiple subjects.

In comparison to private Economics tuition, there is limited freedom to choose the specific Economics tutor, especially one that aligns with your preferred timeslot and desired tuition centre outlet. Classes conducted by popular Economics tutors also tend to be quickly filled, often resulting in being placed on a waitlist with an uncertain waiting period. 

Additionally, commuting to the tuition centre adds extra time and effort, and scheduling makeup lessons can be challenging due to the limited flexibility caused by the need to accommodate other students and classroom availability.

2. Home Economics tuition

Parents have the option to hire an Economics tutor for personalised one-to-one tuition either in the comfort of their own home or at the tutor's location if deemed more suitable. This provides the flexibility to choose a timeslot that is convenient for both parties involved.

A private Economics tutor differs from a classroom teacher in that they do not deliver lessons in a formal and larger classroom setting. The skill sets required to be a good tutor vary from that of a teacher. In a home tuition setup, effective home tutors with strong interpersonal skills can excel in aiding weaker students to master Economics more efficiently. Home tutors are usually more patient and are used to answering questions or providing explanations until the student fully understands the content. 

The intimate and private setting allows for the development of rapport and credibility between the tutor and student, enhancing the students' joy and learning experience compared to a group setting.

3. Private small-group Economics tuition

In order to manage tuition expenses, some tertiary students or their parents may opt for a private Economics tutor to conduct small-group tuition sessions with 2 to 4 students, who may be friends or classmates. 

These sessions can take place at a designated location, such as the tutor's residence or a co-working space, with the hourly tutor fees divided among the group members.

Apart from the cost-saving aspect, small-group private Economics tuition is popular due to the opportunity for students to exchange ideas, engage in discussions, and share perspectives. This collaborative communication fosters the exploration and exchange of different viewpoints, thereby enhancing the depth of their Economics learning experience.

Learning in a group setting also promotes motivation, as the interactive nature of the sessions encourages active participation and creates anticipation among tutees to attend the Economics tuition session. This social interaction contributes to increased engagement and an enriching learning journey.

4. Online Economics tuition

With the rise of online learning in the post-COVID era, both tuition centres and private home tutors now provide the option of online Economics tuition for students who prefer this mode of learning. 

This alternative can be considered when scheduling conflicts arise, such as when an Economics tutor cannot accommodate your preferred time slot due to the need to commute after a prior lesson. Opting for remote Economics tuition proves advantageous when minimising your child's interactions with others to avoid falling ill, especially during critical national examinations like the A-levels.

Here are the most valuable qualities you should look for in an Economics home tutor

1. Passion for Teaching Economics

Passion serves as the driving force behind the continuous improvement of teaching techniques and excellence.

It is crucial to seek a JC Economics tutor who possesses a genuine passion for teaching and is committed to helping students excel. To assess their level of dedication, effective communication and setting clear expectations from the outset are essential. If a short-listed Economics tutor demonstrates a willingness to align with your schedule and cater to your needs, they are likely the right fit.

2. Tutoring Experience

An experienced Economics tutor possesses the necessary training and qualifications to impart knowledge in the subject effectively. This experience enables them to understand students’ requirements better and provide appropriate tutoring guidance. At Tutor City, we emphasise the significance of the tutor experience, allowing you to make an informed decision when selecting a tutor.

3. Reviews and Testimonials

It is always advisable to review feedback from other parents or students who have firsthand experience with the tutor. Their insights can provide valuable information regarding the tutor's teaching style and effectiveness. You can explore online reviews or seek recommendations from people you know who have interacted with the tutor. At Tutor City, you have the option to request testimonials, providing an additional resource to assess if the tutor is the right fit for your needs.

4. Attitude towards Continuous Learning and Improvement 

Economics is a dynamic subject whereby there are constantly new research, developments and commentaries. As an economics tutor, it is crucial to remain updated on the latest news, theories, and real-world applications in the subject. 

Engaging in continuous learning and refinement of tutoring skills through activities like professional development, news and academic journal readings, workshops, and sometimes even participation in Economics networks empowers tutors to enhance their knowledge and deliver lessons that are relevant and up-to-date.
