JC Economics Education Centre was founded by Mr. Anthony Fok in 2013, with the aim of sharing his expertise and passion for economics with Singaporean junior college students. Mr. Fok, who holds a master’s degree and is pursuing a doctorate in education, is dedicated to coaching and mentoring his students personally to help them succeed in the subject. He has been featured in various media outlets, including news articles and television programmes, as one of the best “super tutors” in Singapore, which serves as proof of his effectiveness as an economics tutor.
The centre’s lessons are designed to meet the objectives of the latest A-level economics syllabus, with a focus on not only learning the content but also developing application and evaluation skills to score distinctions in the economics examination. Mr. Fok uses real-life examples and personal anecdotes to illustrate economic concepts better, as he believes that sharing his life experiences is an effective way to help students understand the concepts better and make the lessons more interesting.
The lessons will cover the topics in the latest GCE A-level economics syllabus, followed by going through various examination question types, both case studies and essays. Mr. Fok teaches his students how to analyze and dissect the questions and identify the question’s main requirements, followed by a step-by-step approach to applying economic principles and evaluating answers in class. Students are also provided with Mr. Fok’s mobile number so that they can clarify their doubts after tuition classes. He has a friendly and bubbly personality, which encourages students to get their queries answered promptly.
In preparation for the JC 1 Economics promotional examinations and JC A-Level examinations, the Intensive Revision Programmes are tailored to make revision for economics effective. Some of these programmes include the case studies workshop and topic-centered workshops (e.g. market failure, macroeconomic objectives and policies, international trade, etc.). Mr. Fok ensures that the revision content lessons are concise for easy revision, and students’ examination skills are strengthened. Students will be able to gain useful examination strategies and tips to apply in their economics paper.
Many of Mr. Fok’s former students are grateful for the help he provided, as they scored well in their A-level economics examinations. Several of them have gone on to study at prestigious universities abroad, such as Cambridge and Oxford.
