Importance of A Level Economics Tuition

A Level Economics is an extremely crucial examination for most students, which is why many students often experience heightened feelings of stress and anxiety surrounding this critical examination. Moreover, performing well in the A Level Examinations serves as a gateway to enter students’ choice of university and course.

Furthermore, the A Level Examinations are highly competitive. With each cohort of A Level students out-performing the previous cohorts, it is understandable that students are stressed and anxious. 

As such, MindFlex recommends that you engage an A Level Economics Tutor as soon as possible in order to obtain an edge over your peers. This will stand you in good stead as you sit for the A Level Economics Examination.

Challenges Faced By A Level Economics Students

Stressed Out Over A Level Examinations

A Level Economics students will have to take their A Level Economics examination at the end of their first year – which results in an extremely short runway and time frame for students. Students usually struggle to get a full grasp of the Economics syllabus content, resulting in increased stress levels over their upcoming A Level Economics examination.

Hence, engaging an A Level Economics Tutor can be extremely handy as they will be able to provide targeted practices and useful resources to aid the student in their overall mastery of the Economics language. Through weekly interactions, the A Level Economics Tutor will also be able to identify weaknesses and work on them with the student – effectively helping students to improve their Economics grades.

Penalised for Not Answering the Question

Many A Level Economics students may struggle with pin-pointing the type of question and the nature of the issue being tested in the question. This is especially prevalent in the Case Study Questions (CSQ), where the bulk of the questions require students to apply the relevant Economic concepts to the given case study. As a result, many students may end up writing out-of-point and not answering the question, and get penalised with a low score.

Here at MindFlex, our Top A Level Economics Tutors are able to equip students with the relevant skills to help them to correctly and quickly identify the various question types, thus ensuring that they are able to accurately answer their examination questions.

Lack of Direction in Writing

Many A Level Economics students may have a lack of direction when they craft their answers or arguments. Students may be extremely knowledgeable about their A Level Economics content, but they still may not know what to write in their examination questions. As a result, these students are not able to fit their vast amount of content knowledge to fit the scope of their examination questions, and may end up being penalised for not answering the question.

Here at MindFlex, our Top A Level Economics Tutors will be able to provide comprehensive examination preparation that is exam-centred, as well as give students more than enough exposure to the various question ‘types’ in the A Level examinations.

Time Management

One of the more common issues faced by A Level Economics students is the inability to complete their Economics paper on time. This is largely due to insufficient practice and lack of exposure to the various question types, resulting in them being unaware of how to tackle the questions during examination. As such, students often hand in incomplete papers, or hand in subpar answers.

With a A Level Economics Tutor, however, students will be given weekly practices and exposure to other schools’ papers and past year papers to help hone their Economics examination skills, allowing them to be more confident when tackling their Economics examinations.

Why You Should Engage An A Level Economics Tutor

Benefits of Hiring English Tuition

1. Gain Crucial Examination Skills

The A Level Examinations not only requires students to achieve content mastery of the Economic syllabus, but it also requires students to tailor this knowledge to the real-world context. As such, no matter how well-versed students are in the textbook content, they will still be unable to ace their A Level Economics Examinations if they are unable to correctly apply their content knowledge to their examination questions.

As such, a committed A Level Economics Tutor is thus useful as tutors will be able to teach crucial examination skills to students. This will ensure that students will be able to make proper use of their Economics content knowledge in examinations, and ace their A Level Economics.

2. Aid Students in Clearing Misconceptions

Many A Level Economics Students tend to procrastinate clarifying their doubts with their teachers until it is nearing their Prelims or Block Tests. However, by then, it is often too late, as teachers are often swamped with questions and consultation requests from other students during this period.

Here at MindFlex, we strongly recommend that students clear all of their misconceptions as soon as possible. This is because the sooner students’ doubts are cleared, the faster they can gain mastery in that topic and begin their revision for their A Level Examinations which are extremely crucial. A committed A Level Economics Tutor will be able to assist, and provide their undivided attention to students in a private, 1-1 setting.

3. Targets Students’ Weaknesses in Economics 

The H2 Economics syllabus relies heavily on foundational skills such as Analysis and Evaluation. For students who do not have a strong foundation in these crucial skills, they might find it increasingly difficult to do well in their H2 Economics examinations – resulting in heightened stress levels.

With a H2 Economics Tutor, they will be able to help target the student’s weaknesses – be it evaluation skills or case study skills. With the undivided attention of the H2 Economics Tutor, any weak foundational skills will be corrected in no time, allowing them to put their best foot forward during the H2 Economics examination.

4. Train Students in Time Management

The A Level Examinations require students to be extremely fast and efficient with their time. As such, A Level Economics students are required to have impeccable Time Management skills in order to score well. Students are expected to carry out Economic analysis and craft a coherent line of argument in only a short span of time, which is a massive feat for many A Level Economics students.

Therefore, MindFlex believes that engaging an A Level Economics Tutor will be extremely useful for students. This is because the tutor will be able to let students practise under timed conditions, thus conditioning them to complete their A Level Economics Examination papers on time.

What To Look For in An A Level Economics Tutor

Ability to Help Students in A Levels

The A Level Examinations are an extremely high-stakes and high-stress examination. This is especially so for Economics, which is extremely content-heavy. As such, it is of the utmost importance to find an Economics Tutor that is equipped with the relevant teaching experience and abilities to help ease students’ worries through targeted teaching techniques.

Moreover, you should look for an A Level Economics Tutor that has experience in helping Economics students, or have testimonials from JC students who have achieved stellar grades in their A Level Economics.

Patience in Teaching

Teaching A Level students is no easy feat as students may be extremely stressed and distracted. As such, tutors may have to struggle to get their attention. Furthermore, during the A Level year, students might be extremely stressed out – hence, it is important to engage an A Level Tutor that is patient enough to continuously try to engage the student and clear any doubts they might have.

Of course, this might be difficult to judge or determine at first glance, it might be useful to request for a trial lesson, and through the trial lesson, you can sit in and observe how the A Level Economics Tutor handles the child during the entirety of the lesson.

Academic and Teaching Qualifications

When engaging an A Level Economics Tutor, it is important to select one that has stellar academic and teaching qualifications. It may be beneficial to pick a tutor that has graduated from an Economics related course and has relevant teaching experience. You might also want to look out for NIE-trained Economics tutors who have previously taught in MOE schools.

These qualifications are crucial in ensuring that the tutor is qualified enough to teach your child, and they serve as important points to look out for when looking for your A Level Economics Tutor.

Ability to Provide Additional Resources

It might be difficult to find reliable, updated and good Economics resources that will be able to help students. By selecting an A Level Economics Tutor that is able to provide additional resources, you can save time on hunting for resources and leave it up to your Economics Tutor!

The ability to provide additional resources also means that the tutor has spent time and effort specially curating these exclusive A Level Economics resources, a sure sign of their dedication and commitment to teaching Economics. Hence, when searching for an Economics Tutor, it is definitely a good idea to look out for tutors who are able to provide their own self-collated Economics resources.

Testimonials from A Level Economics Students

A Level Student from St. Andrew’s JC

I decided to go for Economics Tuition with John right after my Common Tests, as I failed really badly. From the very first lesson, it was clear to me that John was highly knowledgeable and dedicated.

Joe Chua
A Level Student from Eunoia JC

Mrs Lua was so kind and patient to me! She knew that I had a weak foundation in the subject, so she did not mind re-teaching me the concepts that I did not understand in school. She would also stay behind after lessons to explain things to me! Thanks to her help, I got a B for my A Levels!
