TESTIMONIALS

 

Harry Tiew and Loo Wee Sing

Opening Quotes   I never understood Economics all that well. I was in the bottom 20 percentile of my cohort in the promotional exams. However, with Harry’s guidance, I managed to increase my understanding as well as my grade in economics. He breaks down abstract concepts and explaining in detail Economics in laymen terms. He never ceases to blow my mind every lesson. Harry deserves the merit for my keen understanding of Economics.   Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes  Mr Harry Tiew is super kind and patient, so I never felt silly asking questions in Economics class. His lessons are well-paced and he gives clear explanations, helping me climb from an E in promos to an A in the ‘A’ Levels. Something I find useful is how he provides detailed feedback on exam scripts and accepts corrections on them so we won’t make the same mistake in the next test. Thank you.  Closing Quotes

 

Yang Siqi, Raffles Junior College (2017)

 

Opening Quotes   Thank you, Mr Harry Tiew, for his guidance and teachings in Economics towards A-levels examinations. Mr Tiew helped me tremendously in managing my time when attempting questions and sharpened my economic analysis to be succinct and accurate. Moreover, Mr Tiew broadened our economic scope by introducing to us real-world issues and economies of important countries. These allowed me to quickly relate to economic issues and policies when answering questions during A levels. My lessons with Mr Tiew never failed to help me identify topics that I’m weaker at and hence focus more on in my preparation for A Levels.    Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes  Thank you, Mr Tiew for your guidance in my J2 year. I hated econs in J1, but it became my favourite subject in J2 after attending your lessons. Real life application taught frequently, I never once dreaded to attend econs tuition. Thank you once again.   Closing Quotes

 

Tay Tze Hee, Nanyang Junior College

 

Opening Quotes  Thank you very much for dedication and commitment to teaching econs! You never fail to break the monotony of the subject and to make it more interesting. Thank you once again for your unwavering support and for making this journey an enjoyable one!   Closing Quotes

 

Zhang Wei, Raffles Institution

 

Opening Quotes  I had little to no confidence in economics as I was always getting sub-par results; even going as far as deeming it as my “throwaway” subject. However, Mr Harry Tiew’s passion in the subject and his engaging way of teaching inspired confidence and motivated me to do better. Despite only attending his lessons for a mere 3 months, I was able to get my distinction on the subject. Thank you, Mr Harry Tiew!    Closing Quotes

 

Lin Yuxuan, Nanyang Junior College

 

Opening Quotes  Thank you so much! With your help, I managed to get an A for H2 Econs at the A Levels, which would’ve been difficult before I started going for your lessons. During my first few lessons, you patiently went through all the basics that I had a weak foundation in and it helped me immensely. Thank you for always bringing in real-world concepts and I especially enjoyed the times where you’d mention historical events like the Asian Financial Crisis because it crossed disciplines and made what we were learning a lot more real and relevant. Continue inspiring the students that will cross paths with you, Mr Tiew.”   Closing Quotes

 

Yap Li Yin, Raffles Institution

 

Opening Quotes  The JC economics lessons conducted by Mr Harry Tiew were always something worth looking forward to because the way he taught economics was very dynamic and real. He always made the seemingly dead economics concepts applicable to real-life scenarios, and that has definitely in some way stirred up my interest and passion towards economics. I am grateful for his strong persistence in relating what we study in JC economics to the “real world”, hence allowing us to see the fuller and clearer picture of economics.

On top of that, Mr Harry Tiew is also an extremely patient and understanding tutor who is always willing to go the extra mile for the students by allowing students to clarify any misconceptions they had after formal lessons. He even gladly answered queries from camp via email during the A-level period when he was also called back to reservist.

He never fails to provide clear and rigorous comments on essays that were submitted to him, even if the essays were additional self-practice. The comments not only rectified any common misconceptions but also improve the essays in such a way that its overall flow is fluent and consistent.    Closing Quotes
