Mr Fung Jia Pei

Mr Fung Jia Pei’s passion for teaching and guiding students ignited during his student days in National Junior College (NJC). He was not only the captain for the Men’s Air Pistol team but also acted as coach for the team. Upon the completion of his A levels, his Junior College economics teacher reached out to him to spearhead and conduct an introductory economics course for students from the Integrated Programme (IP). The coaching experience and short teaching stint at NJC confirmed his passion for educating teenagers and convinced him to take up the Ministry of Education (MOE) Overseas Teaching Scholarship.

Mr Fung pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and Geography at University College London (UCL) where he graduated with Second Class Honours (Upper Division). Upon graduation, he returned to Singapore to commence his formal teacher training at the National Institute of Education. Armed with a wide range of pedagogical tools, Mr Fung then joined Anderson Junior College where he received positive feedback from students and teachers alike on his lectures and tutorials. With a deep belief in engendering student participation and enhancing student motivation, coupled with his ability to present complicated concepts in a clear and easy-to-understand manner, Mr Fung excelled in maintaining a positive classroom environment to maximise student learning. In recognition of his teaching abilities, he was appointed to lead the professional learning team to develop new strategies to motivate students in 2017. In 2018, he was also appointed as a critical friend to provide feedback and guide the development of other teachers in the Economics department.

Mr Fung’s teaching philosophy is founded on the belief that all students deserve the opportunity to develop at their own pace and he adopts a “whole-child” approach to education. This is reflected in how he advocates strongly for students to have a holistic education in college, emphasising their commitment to co-curricular activities in tandem with their pursuit of academic excellence. Certified in Choice Theory and Reality Therapy (CTRT), he worked tirelessly towards helping students fulfil their full potential. Under his steadfast guidance, his students have pursued higher education at top global universities, including the University of Oxford and the London School of Economics, and also succeeded in their applications for prestigious scholarships.
In 2019, Mr Fung joined Learners’ Lodge Education Centre as full-time staff, serving as Education Specialist, teaching Economics classes at both JC1 and JC2 levels. Leveraging on his experience in MOE, he continues to provide educational and career guidance to his students and supports them in their educational pursuits beyond the classroom.

Ashna Khatri, Victoria Junior College (2018)

Opening Quotes Having gotten an E in Economics for my internal school exams, I decided to attend economics tuition. For the longest of time, economics was a fluffy and nearly ungraspable subject for me. However, it was a eureka moment when Mr Fung Jia Pei taught us concrete and robust frameworks that could allow us to quickly understand what the question is asking for and proceed to answer it well. I’m thankful for having a teacher that has also sparked my interest for Economics as I know aspire to read Economics in university.  Closing Quotes

Goh Jun Kai, Eunoia Junior College (2018)

Opening Quotes Mr Fung Jia Pei is clear and concise in his explanations and is able to insert real world examples to inject life and meaning into his teaching, making Econs lessons less mundane and more digestible. The methodical approach used in the answering techniques also makes learning more structured and organised. The repetitive practices and wide coverage of past year questions were really useful in drilling the concepts into us students. Questions posed also engaged us in active learning which was definitely helpful in allowing us to better remember certain concepts. Thank you Mr Fung for being a part of my A level journey, as well as being a reason for my A for Econs!!:-)  Closing Quotes

Opening Quotes Mr Fung Jia Pei is one of the most dedicated and interesting teachers I’ve had. He teaches with a lot of enthusiasm. Besides being well versed in the economics syllabus, he provides many out of syllabus references and real world examples which makes learning very enjoyable. He is willing to sacrifice his own time even on busy days to provide consultation to students who request for his help. Mr Fung is a very good teacher that can get students interested in economics and teach you how to score.  Closing Quotes
