Frequently-Asked-Questions (FAQ)

GENERAL QUESTIONS ON ECONOMICS

Singapore has been dubbed the “Tuition Nation”. Even Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong recently commented that tuition has become a “minor national obsession”. Singaporean parents are certainly willing to splurge on tuition services for their children as they perceive tuition to be the key to academic success. In the last report on Singapore household expenditures in 2008 by the Department of Statistics, figures showed that Singapore households spent around $820 million on centre- and home-based private tuition, up from $470 million a decade earlier.

 

In today’s competitive society, many parents view tuition as a necessary means to scoring distinctions in examinations and getting ahead of the academic race. However, Mr Anthony Fok believes that tuition should be viewed as a supplement to a child’s education, and not an integral part of our education system or an obligatory pathway to success. The role of tuition should be to fill in the gaps of knowledge.

All H1 and H2 students will be placed in the same class. This is because the topics are largely similar for both H1 and H2. The slight difference between H1 and H2 are topics such as Market Structure, Cross Elasticity of Demand, Income Elasticity of Demand, and International Trade.

 

The difference between H1 and H2 is largely the examination format. For H1, students need to do 2 case studies questions. For H2, students need to do 2 case studies and 3 out of 6 essay questions.

 

However, H2 students will need to attend additional payable classes in June holidays, August and September to cover the extra topics for the H2 syllabus. H1 students do not need to pay nor attend the additional classes. 

The ten-year-series (TYS) is an annual publication, which compiles all of the past 10 years’ GCE ‘O’ and ‘A’ level examination questions. The TYS has been used in schools for more than four decades. Students claim that the TYS shows a pattern in the types of questions asked over the years. Nonetheless, the questions now tend not to repeat in the future examinations, unlike in the past. Although the TYS is still relevant since knowing how well you do in an actual past-year paper gives you an indication of how prepared you are, students should also equip themselves with more than the TYS such as other guide books which covers the syllabus adequately as well.

 

Following from this, Mr Anthony Fok has written a series of Economics guide books which covers areas such as evaluation points, diagrams, summary notes book and model essays which will facilitate the students in their revision.

In the GCE ‘A’ level examination, there is now less emphasis on testing the lower order thinking skills of knowledge and comprehension. In order to do well in the examinations, students must show evidence of higher order thinking skills (Application, Analysis, Synthesis and Evaluation) in their answers. Regurgitation of content from lecture notes will weaken their ability to achieve the highest level of response in the Economics paper. Students will need to be able to explain current economic events in terms of the relevant economic principles learnt and also integrate the different topics learnt to construct a coherent line of argument and reconcile conflicting ideas. In addition, students must be able to evaluate the effectiveness and limitations of the various economic policies learnt in the lecture notes. Finally, the answers given must be logical, clear and concise as examiners reward “quality” rather than “quantity” of response given in the essays.

 

Students should keep themselves updated on current affairs. They should be aware of global economic events, in particular the Singapore economy. Students need to keep abreast of current news and reports available online and on print media, as Economics is dynamic and constantly changing. Students will stand out if they are able to quote up-to-date information and statistics in their examination scripts.

 

Apart from having good knowledge on current affairs, students need to be able to apply economic concepts in the right context in order to excel.

As this is a group tuition class, there are usually students from different schools in the same group. Therefore, it is unrealistic to expect everyone to be learning the same topic at the same time. If you have learnt what Mr Anthony Fok happens to be teaching at the moment, learn it again from a different perspective. You may learn something you didn’t know before. If you haven’t learnt what Mr Anthony Fok is teaching in class, you should pay attention and learn it well so that you will be well prepared when your teachers teach you the same topic in school. The idea is you probably will be taught twice for every topic – once by your school teacher and once by Mr Anthony Fok. You will also probably do a lot more essay questions than your peers and therefore, you should be more competent and confident with the topics.

Mr Anthony Fok believes in ensuring that all the topics are adequately revised and covered during the tuition classes. It is important not to “gamble”. Legitimately, nobody should have prior access to the papers set by the Ministry of Education of Singapore in collaboration with the University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate. Nonetheless, being very familiar with the past-year examination questions since Anthony Fok is the author of the answers to the ten-year-series, he can readily tell students in which year this particular type of questions has most recently come out and how often it has come out in the past.

Students are strongly encouraged to purchase the books to help them improve on their weakness.

The notes are not for sale. It is the delivery of the lessons that makes Mr Anthony Fok’s lessons unique – not merely the notes.

Please refer to the testimonials written by Mr Anthony Fok’s former students. It would be better to hear from the students who have personally experienced and benefited from his conduct of lessons.

Economics is unlike other subjects like Mathematics or Sciences. In order to do well for Economics, students need to be equipped with the necessary skills to interpret examination questions correctly and construct arguments effectively within exam conditions to score and excel.

 

Some students do badly for Case Studies because they are not exposed to real world context or examples. In fact, many essay questions are usually linked to Singapore context or other developed countries like USA or Japan and developing countries like Vietnam, Brazil, China and India. Students need to have the relevant knowledge of these countries in order to write well. Bearing this in mind, Mr Fok has crafted special notes to give students the Grade A, i.e. the Level 3 marks (highest marks given for distinction grade). In order to hit Level 3 (L3), students need to give evaluation and analysis points. His notes will summarize all these evaluation and analysis points.

On the first lesson, Mr Anthony Fok will speak personally to all new students to give guidance on how to study for Economics. He will also pass a copy of the previous lessons’ materials so that he/she can catch up. Another suggestion is for JC 2 students to join the JC 1 classes as well. This will help them to catch up on their foundation topics.

No. However, there are intensive revision programme classes conducted in December for JC 1 students to catch up on their foundation topics.

Anthony Fok's Story

Holding multiple degrees, Mr Anthony Fok was a former MOE teacher. It was a job he enjoyed, but he wanted more out of being an educator. He wanted to reach out to more students, to craft his own programmes and have more independence. He started JC Economics Education Centre in the hopes that it can help him and his students achieve more, and it has.

Pragmatically speaking, Mr Anthony Fok is whatever one so desires in a tutor. He knows the Economic syllabus inside out, understands what Cambridge expects from students and is able to help his students do the same through his down-to-earth explanations. The learning resources he personally compiled are valuable to his students who find them easy to understand, comprehend and utilise.

Beyond all of these, Mr Fok is also humourous, caring and dedicated. His Economics lessons are never monotonous or dull. He keeps his students interested by sharing anecdotes from time to time, Economics-related of course. He is generous with his time, helping his students even after tuition hours so that they know that someone is always there for him. All of these make him a well-loved, popular tutor amongst his students, almost like a friend.

Mr Anthony Fok considers himself a educator first and foremost. He truly believes that every child has the potential to do well, and puts his heart and soul into helping them to do so.
