Often viewed as an unenjoyable and difficult subject, Economics has always been disliked or feared by many students in Junior College. The brand new concepts and techniques required for the subject often means that everyone starts out the same, clueless. This fact could be difficult to accept for some, as they might always be leaps and bounds ahead of their peers in their academics. For some, this could be an endearing reason to take on the subject, a clean slate and a fresh start, something difficult to come by in subjects that might require mathematical strengths or a flare in linguistics. Whichever the reason, every student will definitely face difficulties when studying Economics. More often than not, an Economics tutor will enter the picture.
In JC Economics, complex and basic techniques would both be thoroughly and comprehensively explained, catering to students at both ends of the spectrum. This is extremely rare in schools, as many school teachers might find it difficult to cater to the various needs of students due to their overwhelming numbers and the large variety of learning styles. School teachers might not have the time to cater to students individually as well, making it extremely difficult to ensure that each student has a thorough understanding of each topic. The fast paced lessons in schools might also hinder the learning of slower paced students. This is not the case at JC Economics, where every student will be taken care of. Taught by Mr Anthony Fok, a full-time economics tutor, his unique teaching methods, such as storytelling, and handwriting hardcopy notes, provides students with a need to keep up and stay focused in his economics tuition class. Every student leaves the class with a deeper understanding and greater knowledge of the topic than before. Mr Anthony Fok’s patience and ability to connect with each student despite their academic standings will result in everyone benefiting through his classes. In Economics, students will favour topics that are easier to grasp, often avoiding and neglecting the ones where they have no interest in. This behaviour is extremely risky especially in examinations where questions are unpredictable. Thus, engaging students with a good JC Economics tutor such as Mr Anthony Fok, is extremely important. By doing so, they can connect with the students and pique an interest or engage them in the topics that they do not like.
In addition to teaching Economics, Mr Anthony Fok will weave life lessons into his stories as well, engaging students and allowing them to develop both academically and holistically. His passion for Economics runs deep along with the well-being and health of students. Hard work and perseverance are the two qualities that stand out the most. Teaching full days on the weekends at two different locations while rigorously planning lessons throughout the week, enable students to maximise the weekly economics tuition lesson. As the year progresses, the increase in his effort is on full display. The doubling in the number of economics tuition lessons and its duration is testament to his high distinction rate in the annual A Level Examinations. By joining his economics tuition classes in Singapore, Economics will not seem like a chore, but instead a subject that is enjoyable to study.
