Our Economics Tuition Pedagogy
Do you face these problems?
- you understand various economic concepts but cannot comprehend what exam questions are asking for
- you memorise complex economics theories, but cannot apply or evaluate to the context
- you cannot comprehend content in case studies or essays
At Quintessential’s Economics tuition classes, our experienced tutors are well-versed with the difficulties that ‘A’ Level students experience. Hence, our tutors are committed to help them achieve academic success, by helping them to:
1. Build a strong knowledge of Economic theories grounded in real world application
At Quintessential, we believe the secret to scoring is simple- having exposure to a variety of key exam content and questions. Our center has methodologically and meticulously developed a curriculum that ensures students fully understand the nuances of Economic theory. Understanding how to apply such Economic theory to real world events is also paramount to academic success. Most of our classes also revolve around discussions on recent case studies on issues like the Eurozone debt crisis, America’s mortgage crisis, Japan’s negative interest rate policies, COE prices, Cooling Measures in Singapore, and problem solving in general. While the exam board may vary the essay and case questions, the tested concepts must come from the core economics syllabus.
2. Build application skills by practising past ‘A’ Level Economics questions
Quintessential has developed a collection of carefully curated past ‘A’ Level Economics examination questions. Students put their Economics knowledge to the test in a series of intensive practices, and QE tutors give generous, insightful and constructive feedback on their work. A wide breadth of such questions are selected so that students can be exposed to a variety of concepts, and are prepared for any kind of question during their formal examinations. Moreover, our tutors bring in industry financial knowledge from external contexts to provide students with interesting examples, making every session engaging and insightful.
Would you like to play a game, Dr. Falken? Actually, this episode isn’t really about games, or Matthew Broderick, or Thermonuclear War. But enough with the long references to 1983’s best movie, War Games. Today Jacob and Adriene are going to teach you about Oligopolies, which are kind of like the monopolies that we talked about last week, except with more companies involved. Then we’ll get to the games, or rather, the game theory. Which is all about how companies try to compete with each other in the real world.
