What Is Economics Tuition?

Economics tuition is a service offered by some tuition agencies in Singapore and is mainly aimed at students preparing for their GCE ‘A’ Levels or the International Baccalaureate certification.

As one of the most popular subjects taken at the pre-university level, there is an intense amount of competition to overcome in order to do well, and many students have taken to tuition agencies, which provide additional coaching in the subject, to supplement their lessons in school.

Sample Prices and Lesson Structure

The pricing structure for Economics tuition in Singapore is rather straightforward, with most agencies charging a fixed fee per month (or more specifically, every 4 lessons). Many places also charge a one-off registration fee and recurring material fees for printed notes and miscellaneous resources provided.

Prices range from $300 (for 4 lessons) on the lower end and can go up to $640 (for 4 lessons) at some agencies. Lessons are often conducted in groups of less than 20, with some agencies charging a premium for even smaller groups of 6 and below. Some agencies also offer 1-on-1 tuition, but this is often for a much higher fee.

Lessons in tuition agencies often follow the school syllabus, and most courses are geared towards exam preparation.

The Tuition Industry in Singapore

The number of tuition agencies in Singapore has grown exponentially over the years, with more than 950 tuition centres in the market today.

Most of these agencies are staffed by teachers who have had decades of experience teaching Economics in schools, and some have even achieved the status of ‘super tutors’. These tutors have high success rates and exceptionally long waiting lists. Most of them charge higher fees as a result, but they can also almost definitely guarantee an ‘A’ grade during exams.

There have been worries that high quality tuition only comes with high rates, but many of these tuition centres offer lessons at greatly subsidised rates for students under financial assistance plans.

“HCI: Mr. Edmund Quek taught us the relevance of economics to our everyday lives. His economics tuition class was always engaging and peppered with humour, and he did it while explaining key economic concepts clearly and precisely in a professional manner. While teaching the topics in the syllabus, he drew references to current economic affairs as well as economic events of the past to help us understand the real-world applicability of economic concepts and this enhanced our understanding of the subject substantially. Under his tutelage, I improved dramatically and finally achieved an A for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Economics paper. Thank you Mr. Edmund Quek.”–Thomson Wong,

Benefits of Economics Tuition

  • Additional notes and resources

One of the biggest benefits of Economics tuition in Singapore comes in the form of notes. These notes include model essays, case studies and detailed resources that help students understand difficult concepts. The additional information provided by tuition agencies gives students an edge during exams – the more case studies they encounter, the more examples they can provide when discussing the application of policy measures and economic growth in real-world situations.

  • More attention given

Unlike in school where a teacher’s attention is split between a large number of students (with some teachers even double-hatting by teaching different subjects), the Economics tutors in tuition agencies focus solely on one subject and teach in a small groups. They are therefore able to give each student more time and attention when addressing their concerns.  

  • Tailored learning

Many tuition centres offer customised notes for different students according to the areas they are weak at. A student who is weak in Microeconomics, for example, might receive extra homework related to the subject, while one who is weak in the understanding of Monetary and Fiscal policies might be assigned extra reading material on the subject. This tailored learning approach also ensures that no student is left behind.

  • The chance to interact with students from other schools

Students in tuition centres are often encouraged to participate during lessons, and this mode of active learning allows them to bounce ideas off each other. The mixing of students from different schools also allows for different perspectives which can contribute to a richer learning experience.

Besides the academic benefits of mixed groups, students can also improve their sociability and learn to operate outside their comfort zone when interacting with other students of different backgrounds.

  • Crash courses

Some students might not have the time or funds needed to attend Economics tuition regularly – and some might find that they have no need for it during their first year of pre-university education.

However, when the exam season approaches, they might find that they need the extra help. Tuition agencies help cater to this group of students by offering ‘crash courses’ and short-term tuition. This means students can simply sign up for lessons whenever they need the help, instead of forking out a hefty sum every month.

  • Online learning

Traveling to and fro every week for tuition lessons might prove time-consuming and difficult, especially if the tuition agency is located far from a student’s home. Some agencies have addressed this issue by providing courses that are primarily conducted online. These online courses are offered at rates cheaper than face-to-face sessions, and students can fit these lessons into their hectic schedules more easily.

Other than online courses, many tutors are open to after hours consultations from their students – this means that they are available online (via a messaging service like Whatsapp) to answer any urgent or last-minute questions from their students. This is especially useful in the lead up to exam season and allows students to directly address their concerns to their tutor.

How Do I Choose an Economics Tuition Agency?

  • Cost

One of the biggest factors in choosing a tuition agency is the cost, and students should especially consider miscellaneous fees like registration and materials fees. Some tuition agencies charge slightly higher rates per month, but do not collect any additional fees.

Furthermore, higher tuition fees do not always mean a better quality of education, so cost should not be the main factor when choosing an agency.

Agencies also offer discounts for friends who sign up together, or for referrals.

  • Availability & Accessibility

The lesson schedules for different tuition centres are often available on their websites, and students should look through this information to determine the availability of classes a week – the more classes a centre offers, the more likely the student is able to pick a class that best fits their schedule. Should a student miss his or her lesson due to unforeseen circumstances, they would also have a higher chance of attending a make-up lesson within the same week.

Some tuition centres also have multiple branches, which makes it easier to access.

  • Results/ Testimonials
