Economics Cafe is a MOE-registered leading economics tuition centre in Singapore that offers ‘A’ level economics tuition. The principal economics tutor is Mr. Edmund Quek, who is a highly experienced and well sought after economics tutor in Singapore with over one and a half decades of teaching experience. He holds a Master’s Degree in Economics (MSSc) from the National University of Singapore (NUS) which puts him among some of the most highly qualified economics tutors in Singapore. As a small contribution to society, he provides economics lecture notes to students in the hope that they will make learning economics easy and interesting. These lecture notes have been designed to concisely and clearly explain the key economic concepts which students need to master to excel in economics examinations. Since the publication of these lecture notes, thousands of economics students and teachers have benefited from them. In 2013, Mr. Edmund Quek was invited by MediaCorp to an interview on Economics Lecture Notes. He is also the author of several economics books including Economics (Economics Cafe), JC Economics Model Essays (Economics Cafe) and 'A' Level Economics Model Essays (Pearson Longman) which are recommended reading in several Junior Colleges in Singapore. JC Economics Model Essays (Economics Cafe) was the best-selling economics essays book in Singapore in 2013 where over 4000 copies were sold. Students who wish to take economics tuition with Mr. Edmund Quek may want to read the testimonials written by his former students to learn about the style and the strength of his teaching. This should give them an idea of what to expect when they join his economics tuition class.
Apart from doing well in the Singapore-Cambridge ‘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. 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 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. He 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. Mr. Edmund Quek makes regular contributions to charity and provides continual financial assistance to some needy families with a proportion of the returns on his investments.
