You can sit in for a trial lesson with us to have a feel of the dynamic learning experience we are offering. There will be no administration charge for a trial lesson.

What are the payment terms the centre is accepting?

We accept cash and cheque payment only. Please make payment to Economicsfocus if you are making payment by cheque.

How have your students fared in their past year examination?

For the past ten years since I have started conducting group tuition, the centre has averagely achieved a 90% grade A or grade B for JC Economics at both H1 and H2 level. As for General Paper, there is near 100% pass but the grade varied, depending on the level of language proficiency at enrollment of tuition and their stage of enrollment. Please do speak to Mr. Simon Ng @ 96890510 on this matter if you have more inquiries.
