Economics Tutor Testimonials

Students who wish to take economics tuition from Mr. Edmund Quek should read the testimonials written by his former students to learn about the strengths of his teaching which will provide them an idea of what to expect when they join his economics tuition class.

Although I had attended only a few lessons of economics tuition with Mr. Edmund Quek before the preliminary economics examination, my percentile improved from 30 to 96. Frankly, it took me some time to believe the dramatic improvement in my grade for the subject which could be attributed to Mr. Edmund Quek's ingenuity in imparting the knowledge of economics and the analytical skills to us. Mr. Edmund Quek is truly a godsend and I am grateful that I found such a great economics tutor who was able to thoroughly address every single doubt that I had and help me structure my thoughts in a way that would not have been possible without. I will always remember the short but fulfilling time that I had with Mr. Edmund Quek. I have come to love economics so much and have become very interested in the subject recently. I am very grateful to Mr. Edmund Quek. I hope that he will continue to inspire future batches of students the way he awed me and the other students in my batch.

Wealth Management

Apart from doing well in the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Economics examination, Mr. Edmund Quek also teaches students in his economics tuition classes how to apply the concepts they learn in economics to increase their wealth in the future. Good wealth management is essential for increasing the standards of living of future generations. In the 2008-2009 Global Financial Crisis caused by the Subprime Mortgage Crisis which occurred in the United States, using fundamental economic concepts such as the business cycle, fiscal policy, monetary policy, international trade and the exchange rate, coupled with general knowledge about the world economy, he more than doubled his wealth in a short span of a year and a half.

Mr. Edmund Quek believes that it is important to expose students to the bewildering array of financial investments that exist today, both high-risk and low-risk, such as stocks, bonds and foreign exchange, and then cultivate the right values in them. With the widespread of internet, keeping these young people ignorant of risky financial investments is no longer wise and feasible. Instead, they should be given proper guidance on financial investment to enable them to develop the right mindset. This will not only allow them to avoid massive financial losses to unfavourable economic conditions in the future, it will also enable them to create wealth with wealth. With greater wealth, they will be able to make greater contributions to society such as helping the needy financially. Students who take economics tuition at Economics Cafe will be taught the right values and mindset towards financial investment.
Mr. Edmund Quek provides economics lecture notes to the students in his economics tuition classes. These lecture notes have been designed to concisely and clearly explain the key economic concepts that students need to master to excel in economics examinations. In addition, they enable students to do their revision effectively and efficiently to prepare for economics examinations.

Mr. Edmund Quek provides the students in his economics tuition classes with economics model essays. These model essays have been written to show students what economic concepts to apply in answering various theoretical and topical questions. In addition, they show students how to concisely and clearly explain economic concepts in responding to various questions.

Mr. Edmund Quek helps over 75 per cent of the students in his economics tuition classes obtain a distinction in the ‘A’ level economics examination nearly every year. In some years, the distinction rate hit as high as 90 per cent, with the remaining students mostly scoring a B. Over his one and a half decade-long teaching career, he has taught more than 3300 students on a tuition basis.

Mr. Edmund Quek imparts essay writing skills and case study answering skills to the students in his economics tuition classes, apart from teaching them economic theories and concepts. Although these skills are also taught in some schools, they are often not emphasised due to the large amount of time that the teachers need to cover the large amount of course content.

  • Due to popular demand, Economics Cafe will be opening a new JC2 economics tuition class on Monday starting from 27/03/2017. Current students who wish to switch from their current classes to the new class on Monday are allowed to do so, subject to availability. If you have any queries, you may contact Mr. Edmund Quek t[...]
