1. Custom-Tailored To Suit Students Learning Style And Needs

We don't believe in a one size fits all solution. That is because each student has unique needs and learning styles. Our job is to ensure that the teaching style complements their learning style and caters to their academic needs.

That is why each tuition is customized to suit the needs of the student. The tuition's pace and style will be personalized so the student can learn better and according to their requirements. Our tutors will first uncover the strengths and weaknesses of the student.

After that, they will ensure that the weaknesses are targeted so they can be turned into strengths. Doing this will allow students to comprehend the JC Economics syllabus much more effectively.

2. Effective Time Management Strategies

Almost all students struggle with time. That is because the JC Economics examination is lengthy, and it can take a good amount of time to solve. That is why our tutors focus on helping students work on their time management strategies.

Effective time management is done by helping students practice past papers and timing them. Doing so will help them understand where they stand, and the additional time they are taking to complete the examination. Ideally, students should finish their exams and still have enough time to double-check their papers.

That is why we focus on time management from day one in our JC Economics tuition service. Students are given the tips, tricks, techniques, and tools to finish their exams on time. They are guaranteed to have enough time to complete the paper and check it before submission during their examination.

That is something we have noticed over these years, and that's why we focus on helping students increase their confidence. We do this by ensuring that they have mastered all complex concepts and questions.

Having increased confidence is one of the most important things for any JC student. It allows them to be less fearful and do well in their examinations. Our tutors will guarantee that students are confident in the subject.

Our JC Economics tuition service will help students be more positive about economics to excel in it with ease. Such confidence will also transfer to other subjects, and students will overall do well in all of their examinations.

Relying on school notes and materials is not enough. Students who want to secure an A grade need to go beyond this and access additional resources. That is where Tutor City comes in.

Our tutors have a wide pool of resources that allows them to help students get an A grade. Students will gain access to various materials such as notes, past papers, and reading materials to enhance their knowledge of the subject.

These additional resources will help students understand complex concepts, remember these concepts, understand how to answer questions accurately, and much more. Any tutor you choose from our pool will have access to these resources.

5. Academic And Non-Academic Mentoring

JC is a confusing time for many students. Our tutors understand this because they have also gone through the same process before starting their careers. It is a time when students must make major decisions that will impact their prospects and career path.

That is a lot of pressure on a student, and many can't deal with it. However, our tutors are well-versed with the academic system, and they can help students understand what they want. They can also help them pick the right subjects to get into the university of their choice.

What is Economics all about?

In layman terms, Economics is the study of the ways in which resources are utilized in industries, businesses and people.

Many topics revolve around Economics; macroeconomic policy, production, efficiency, market failure, opportunity cost, resource allocation etc.

Economics gives you a wide lens on how to view society as a whole...

...and what drives every minuscule action that will affect every part of it, and how we can help benefit the world by changing the way we live.

Schools of Thought: Mainstream vs Heterodox

These are commonly-asked questions by many students contemplating whether or not to study Economics. To start with, one should understand Economic theories and its application to the modern world. There are 2 broad categories of thinking:

[Mainstream economics]

...is a name coined to describe an orthodox or neoclassical school of economic thought, whose concepts are central to economic theories currently being taught in many universities around the world. Popularly-known, mainstream economics states that markets are moved by an “invisible hand” and follow rational choice theory where all actors are rational and maximize their own utility. The origins of mainstream economics began in the mind of Adam Smith.

A major criticism is they do not take the irrational nature of markets and individuals into consideration, thus there is an emergence of alternative fields of study, which is discussed in the next category of thinking.

[Heterodox economics]

...is a new economic thought that falls outside of mainstream economics, which is critical of the role of the government and the rationality of actors. One example in this field of thinking is behavioral economics which take into account factors that affect an actor’s decision is not quantifiable and markets is not always efficient, e.g global financial crisis. Another example of heterodox economics is environmental economics - a field that studies policy decisions for promoting sustainable businesses and reducing pollution.

Learning the 2 different schools of thought would give students a worldly view on how Economics impact the decision-making process of government institutions on how policies are formulated, to how a man in the street decides on where to spend his next dollar.

Reasons to study Economics

There are a variety of reasons why students want to take up economics as one of the subjects for A-levels or IB.

1. It’s a career choice - Studying economics opens up a variety of careers relating to public policy planning in government agencies, finance sector, banking and insurance, etc. It also teaches you on how to manage your resources if you want to start your own business.


2. Personal knowledge - Many students can also benefit from studying Economics as it teaches you topics on poverty, inflation and unemployment. These affects your and even your parents’ livelihoods so knowing economic trends or cycles can predict your future income.
