Ms. Kellie Tan
JC Economics Tutor, Learners’ Lodge
Ms Kellie Tan graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Arts degree with Second Upper Honours. She was a recipient of the MOE Teaching Award and went on to obtain a post graduate diploma in education from NIE.
Upon graduation, Ms Tan embarked on her teaching career as an A level economics tutor and Project Work tutor in Victoria Junior College, her alma mater. As the teacher in charge of the VJC Choir, she helped organise various overseas trips and was instrumental in the
choir’s winning of top prizes in competitions. After five years in VJC, she subsequently
broadened her experience by teaching in Raffles Institution and Hwa Chong Institution. As
such, her time in top junior colleges spanned a decade. Thus, Ms Tan is very well versed in requirements of the A level Economics syllabus and is adept at teaching concepts and imparting important examination skills. As a Civics Tutor in the junior colleges she worked in, she also built rapport with her students by monitoring their progress and motivating them.
Beyond helping her students to ace the examinations, she also seeks to nurture in them a
lifelong interest in the subject and the ability to apply of theoretical knowledge to current, real world situations. As such, she always gives real life examples in her teaching of Economics and encourages her students to gain knowledge of current situations, in the hope that her students learn beyond the confines of the classroom.
She is also a patient and devoted teacher, who always takes the time to answer every student’s questions and aids them tirelessly in their pursuit of knowledge.
The Economics tutor in Learners’ Lodge is very knowledgeable about various economic concepts, even those that extend beyond the H2 economics syllabus. This has enabled me to further my understanding and connect the dots better during lessons, allowing me to have an elusive edge over others. He is consistent in clarifying any doubts that I have during the course of my JC journey and his timely response to my questions has been immensely helpful especially during crucial examination periods. I would like to thank him for being such an inspiring and encouraging economics tutor.
H2 Economics was always a hard subject for me to get used to, and there were so many times where I felt like giving up completely. But thanks to the unending patience of the Learners’ Lodge tutor with a student like me, I felt so much more at ease whenever I revised, knowing that I had a supportive tutor on my side. My C grade might not mean much compared to most of your students, but to me who kept getting S and U grades, and considered dropping to H1 but had pressed on with your determination — that grade, and your support, mean more than I can say.
I would like to thank the Economics Tutor from Learners’ Lodge for his constant guidance all the way from the start of my Economics journey as a clueless J1 student. From day 1, his explanations and notes have always been clear and concise. With plenty of model essays and notes, the plentiful resources available ensures that each student will be able to perform to his or her fullest potential. He also never fails to answer my queries quickly during exam periods, and give encouraging messages. He definitely played a vital role in my securing an A for my Economics in the A Levels.
