Revise efficiently with our concise and exam-oriented Economics notes
Based on the comprehensive feedback that we have collected from former students, we have found that one recurring studying obstacle is the lack of exam-friendly study materials to streamline the revision time for Economics. At the pre-tertiary education level, students are occupied with many content-heavy and practice-intensive subjects, such as JC History and JC Mathematics. As a result, they may face time constraints. At Economics Focus, our JC Economics tutors provide concise revisionary resources that will cut down the time spent on the topical-based revision, so that students can remember the critical key terms and concepts whilst retaining attention span and memory. Through this effective approach, students will have more time to attempt more practice questions, which should take precedence over the need to read through notes.
Develop essay writing skills and case study answering techniques
Economics Focus not only covers content enrichment and topical re-teaching, but also skills-based learning, which is an aspect that many students are unable to acquire and refine on their own effectively. Under the supervision and tutelage of our JC Economics tutors, students will develop the skills essential to excel in the Paper 1 and Paper 2 of A Level Economics.
Paper 1 CSQ
For Paper 1, which is the case studies (CSQ) component, the Economics tuition programme will guide students through the recognition of key terms, analysis of data in tables, figures and charts, integration of Economics concepts with contextual questions. The Economics tutors will go through the various case study questions with students during the classes and show them how to apply these essentials of case study application, so as to ace this paper.
Paper 2 Essay
For Paper 2, which refers to the essays, students will learn how to process the information provided by the preamble of the question, structure their answers and answer the question systematically. Also, our economics tuition programme will help students to develop strong time management skills, as we have found that many students, especially those who are new to the subject, are unable to complete their essays within the time limit. Therefore, our classes will include timed essay practices that help students to get used to the exam conditions.
Economics Focus conducts essay writing skills and case study answering techniques workshops during the school holidays, so that students can correct their mistakes and become better Economics learners.
Master A Level Economics in meaningful and enjoyable ways
Similar to the study of other abstract-looking subjects, Economics Focus encourages students to approach A Level Economics with an open mind. The rationale stems from the fact that Economics is all around us. The concepts taught are applicable in daily settings, such as the use of demand and supply analysis to explain why price of holiday tour packages surge during the school holidays. Our Economics tutors utilize relatable real world examples to illustrate to students how these concepts are useful and meaningful. In fact, some students may not realise that Economics is crucial in helping us to make informed decisions. That is why the classes offered by Economics Focus are not confined within the boundaries set by the conventional textbooks and school notes. Through our economics tuition programme, students will develop better appreciation towards Economics and gain insightful knowledge about the cyclical changes in the economies around the world.
