FAQs (of Economics Tuition)


Private Individual Tuition Lessons

For our personal home tutoring or mini group tuition lessons, the collected fees prior to the commencement are kept in an escrow account. This means that the tuition are held on by our Finance Division, until after the end of the first two lessons.

Only when you, the parent or the student, confirm the quality and competence of the private home tuition teacher, do we release the portion of the tutor fees to the teacher.

Receipts will be issued to students as proof of payment.


Question: What is unique advantage of

We have two very strong competitive advantage in the local tuition industry. First, we ensure the quality of all 100% of our tuition teachers, by equipping each and every tutor with the core subject materials, as well as the practical ability to teach.

Second, and equally important, we are the ONLY tuition agency to allow parents and pupils to pay the lowest tuition rates possible, by engaging the respective subject tutors to bid for the tutoring assignments. In this way, the competitive bidding system most often sees the tutors place lower bids and thus reduced tuition rates, to secure the tutor jobs and assignments.

Definitely a win-win for tutors and parents/students!


Question: How do I make payment?

Group Economics Tuition Lessons

For group lessons, students are encouraged to attend the first lesson, risk free. The fees will only be collected on the second lesson. The fees are collected for every 4-5 lessons or collected on a per-term basis.

Receipts will be issued to students as proof of payment.


Private Individual Economics Tuition Lessons

For individual lessons, the tuition fees will only be collected after every 4 lessons.

For the first 4 lessons, the Agency will only receive commission for completion of the first 2 lessons. The student/parent shall forward 50% of the tuition fees of the 2 lessons to the agency. The Economics home tutor shall receive the remaining 50% at the end of the 4th lesson.

ALL the fees for subsequently lessons from the 5th lesson accrues to the home tutor

Example: The Economics home tuition teacher charges $120 /hr. At the end of the 2nd lesson, the Agency claims 40% of the tuition fees of the 2 lessons as Agency commission.

Per hour: 120

Per lesson: 240

2 lessons: 480

Therefore, Agency commission is 40% of 480 = $192.

(Terms are negotiable for individual tuition lessons.)


1. In the unlikely event that the student/parent is dissatisfied with the tutor’s performance and wishes to terminate the tuition services at the end of the first lesson, the Agency in this case receives NO commission. 100% of the first lesson fees is accrued to the Economics home tutor.

2. There is no free trial for individual home tuition.)

Question: What are the tuition fees and rates?

Our rates are very affordable and very competitive. For instance, our group rates range from $30 to $45 per hour. The difference depends on when you or your child joins the lessons. The earlier you join, the lower the rate.

Do also note that we collect a refundable deposit fees for our classroom regular lessons. This fee will be refunded ,upon 1-month written notice, to Adam Smith Learning Centre Pte Ltd.

We regret to inform that failure of  the 1-month written notice may lead to the forfeiture of the deposit.

There’s also a very small one-time administrative fee.


Question: What do you mean by your first lesson being RISK-FREE?

Any student can attend any of our group lessons and classes on a risk free basis. By this, we mean that you can come for the first lesson literally without any risk, because we won’t be collecting any fees during the first lesson.

In the very unlikely event that we do not add value to your revision at all, naturally you are disappointed, and would like to stop all future lessons.

We do not object. In fact, we do not even ask you to pay a single cent. That means, if after the risk free (first) lesson, you wish to discontinue the second and all future lessons, the first lesson is not charged. Hence, the meaning risk-free.

However, should you continue to attend any lessons in future, the first lesson is considered well done, and we will ask for the fees for the first lesson too. (Note: this applies at all times within 24 months of the date of the first risk-free lesson.)
