The two-hour sessions are just right and I am able to absorb most of the content and skills taught. I find the techniques taught to approach the questions to be very useful in exams. Since are are given at most 5 minutes to plan out the essay and structure it in a clear manner, techniques like identifying the “invisible” components to start the introduction paragraph and the “start and end points” become very helpful. In the few months of tuition, I have gained alot of exposure to questions at

I have always felt like I could not keep up with the class in school as the teacher was too fast and being a slightly slower learner, I got a U grade. After coming to Ms Foo’s class, my understanding of the subject improved drastically due to her patient and very coherent explanations, which facilitated learning at a breakneck pace. Ms Foo’s friendly demeanour is also very approachable – meaning that me and my classmates could easily speak up about any concerns we had, fine-tuning to our style of communication and making it possible to discuss questions effectively. Besides that, Ms Foo’s extensive knowledge of the subject enables real world learning, often teaching us applications of theoretical concepts in real life, and even helping us learn more about current events that are relevant to our studies – an important aspect of Economics as we are expected to write about that in our essays. The classroom that we learn in is also very conducive, being just the right size to engage the students.

Ms Foo is a very helpful tutor who provides us with many resources including notes. She explains concepts clearly and uses many real-world examples to help us understand the theories and answers to different questions. She also provides us with a lot of help as she is always open to any questions we have, answering them in the middle of lessons or through text, and provides us with her review and marking of our own practices outside of class. She is also very caring and dedicated to each student as she takes the effort to remember our strengths, weaknesses and habits. Apart from academic teaching and learning, she often shares with us and cares for our well-being through advising us to sleep well and provides snacks for us to stay fresh during lessons.

Ms Foo is a very understanding and patient teacher whom you can approach to clarify your doubts. The lessons are of good pace and there are a range of practices that are provided for you to practise and apply the concepts that you have learnt. There is also a very flexible lesson system whereby you can choose to focus on a particular topic of Economics if you want to. There is also a very conducive and fun environment whereby every student participates actively in class and they are able to learn from one another to help improve their grades.

First started out being really bad in Economics getting nothing higher than U grade. After attending Ms Foo’s lessons, I learnt skills on how to approach questions, how to write up proper introduction and staying on topic of the questions. Classes are small in size which is great as there is better focus on each student, moreover the flexibility of classes, being allowed to choose what we would like to focus on, gives us the freedom of choice to focus on our weaker topics in Economics. Although time spent is short, I have seen several improvements in the subject.

In the short time that I have been part of Ms Foo’s tuition, I was able to close many conceptual gaps and misunderstandings. I also discovered many things that I did not even realise was part of my syllabus. Ms Foo is very understanding and is willing to make changes to accommodate for the difficult and stressful scheduling of a JC student. Her group tuition is very interactive as the students ask many questions and she is able to answer quickly and effectively, helping me further understand the concepts. Her one-to-one tuition is very helpful as well as she allows me to voice my concerns and is able to identify my errors in the concepts.

Ms Foo’s explanation is short and clear. She is willing to help me anytime as long as she is free. She is a very nice and kind teacher. She doesn’t mind repeating the same concept for me regardless how many times I asked. She tries to make herself free to help me out. It would be more beneficial for a student who is well prepared for content to attend her lesson.Thankful to have met her and being taught by her. I hope I do not disappoint her.

Ms Foo is a patient tutor who is willing to go through the extra miles to make sure that we get the concepts right. She will make sure everyone is clear of the question or topic before moving on. She is also very meticulous in a sense that she cares a lot about her students’ welfare. Ms Foo is a very motivating tutor who always encourage her students. I’ve learnt a lot from her.

Ms Foo is a really caring and bubbly teacher who tries her best to make the lesson as enjoyable as possible. She constantly brings in real life examples to illustrate certain Economic concepts, which makes it feel more interesting than just reading it off the notes. I personally feel that I’ve learnt much more under Ms Foo’s guidance than the two year’s of teaching in my school and I am really thankful that I have been taught by her. I hope that I’ll be able to do Ms Foo proud in my upcoming A Levels examination!

Going for Ms Foo’s tuition was like a place for me to reinforce my learning, put my Economics skills into practice and also learn new skills so as to better prepare myself for the upcoming examinations! Ms Foo makes us think on the spot whenever we are answering her questions, allowing us to simulate exam conditions where we also have to read the question, refer to the case and also think on the spot to craft our answers!  In addition to that, going for Ms Foo’s tuition allowed me to gain more knowledge on Economic terms that were not taught in school. She also further prepares us, by giving us concise notes for us to refresh our memory and revise.

Ms Foo is also a very caring teacher, whenever she sees that we are all very tired, she tries to lighten up the mood or wakes us up by telling jokes or sharing personal stories!  These jokes never fail to make me laugh.

Hello Ms Foo,

Thank you for teaching me and being patient with me. I joined EconsLab without much knowledge and skills for Economics but you slowly taught me skills and answering techniques, and I feel that I have improved a lot under your guidance. Lessons with you was always engaging and it really helped me in my learning and understanding of the topic better. Although there are areas where we are weak in, you never gave up on us and instead spurred us on and give us comments on how we could better improve our answers. It has been a great joy and pleasure to have been under your guidance.

Ms Foo is a very friendly and understanding teacher who always does her best to help me with my Economics. Without her, I would not have noticed the flaws in my essay writings and concepts. She conducts the lesson in a warm, conducive and engaging manner that allows us to learn well. I also like her flexible way of conducting the lessons.

Ms Foo’s teaching methods surpass even my own teachers’ in SAJC. Giving us time to generate points force us to review whatever we have learnt and apply it in the given context. Her recommended time window for reading the case studies and questions helps me to finish my analysis quickly to tackle the questions as soon as possible.

Despite the short time I spent with her, I think Ms Foo has really helped me a great deal in identifying my weakness in Economics and working with me to improve my ability to answer questions. I enjoyed the lessons with Ms Foo as she is a very approachable teacher. I can have free and easy discussions with her about my doubts in Economics.

Ms Foo is very enthusiastic in her teaching and will always answer my questions every time I ask one. She never fails to be clear with her explanations and would always ensure that we understood her explanations before continuing on. Her feedback to my every points during discussions are very constructive, and would always encourage me to speak up even if I am not sure because she goes by the philosophy of ‘it is better to get it wrong here than in the exams’.

Lessons with Ms Foo have been fruitful and enjoyable. Under her, I have learnt how to analyse questions and provide the necessary conditions to answer the questions. I have learnt more about Economics as a subject that requires critical thinking and analysis and relevance to real issues as opposed to one that consisted of blindly memorizing notes.
