He has also obtained a distinction in Macroeconomics (EC6102) and Microeconomics (EC6101) at the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) level. These academic achievements make him the most highly qualified economics tutor in Singapore. However, it is not these great academic achievements that make him a good economics tutor, but his strong and unwavering passion for imparting knowledge to students, and his ability to break down complex economic theories and concepts into easily comprehensible common-sense ideas. One may read the plethora of testimonials from his former students to learn more about these attributes. Over the last two decades, Mr. Edmund Quek has taught over three thousand and six hundred students on a tuition basis, including the current batch of students. Nearly every year, he helps over 75 per cent of the students in his economics tuition classes obtain a distinction in the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Economics examination, with most of the remaining students scoring a B. This means that nearly 100 per cent of the students in his economics tuition classes score an A or a B in the Singapore-Cambridge GCE ‘A’ Level Economics examination every year. Under his tutelage, many students saw their grades improve from a U to an A. In some years, the distinction rate hit as high as 90 per cent. Mr. Edmund Quek currently has over 200 students under his tutelage which is one of the highest numbers for economics tuition under any single economics tutor in Singapore.

Mr. Edmund Quek is the author of several economics books which include Economics - A Singapore Perspective (Economics Cafe), JC Economics Model Essays (Economics Cafe) and 'A' Level Economics Model Essays (Pearson Longman). These economics books are recommended readings in many junior colleges and economics tuition centres in Singapore.

The Principal Economics Tutor, Mr. Edmund Quek, is the most highly qualified economics tutor in Singapore, based on his academic achievements. Some people have asked if Mr. Edmund Quek is a super economics tutor which is a phrase that has captivated many Singaporeans who are looking for economics tuition in recent years. The answer will depend on how one defines a super economics tutor. If one defines a super economics tutor as someone who frequently appears on the media by spending tens of thousands of dollars on marketing which will translate into higher fees for students, Mr. Edmund Quek will not qualify as one. If one defines a super economics tutor as someone who has a large number of students under their tutelage due to their prowess as an economics tutor and excellent track record, Mr. Edmund Quek may qualify as one as he has more than 250 students under his tutelage every year, which is one of the highest number for any single economics tutor in Singapore, with most of them achieving a distinction in the external examination. There are no best economics tutor and best economics tuition as there are only better economics tutor and better economics tuition.

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. This is a feat which not many fund managers have been able to achieve.

Mr. Edmund Quek believes that it is important for an economics tutor 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.
