“To me, Economics is a very interesting subject yet I am unable to score in examinations. I always thought that memorising notes and replicating it during exams would help me score, but Mr Tan made me realised that it was not the case. Mr Tan is very good at teaching his students specific skills necessary to tackle the essays and case study questions, which are essential for one to do well in the paper. With such skills, his students are guaranteed to be able to write a balanced answer with scope and depth. Mr Tan is a very experienced and passionate Economics Tutor. He is very patient in explaining the Economics concepts and precise in teaching them. I am grateful to be taught by Mr Tan and never once regret joining his tuition. Thank You Mr Tan!”
