What is Economics?

Economics is a social science, which studies the production, distribution, and consumption of services and goods. Macroeconomics looks at the behavior and performance of an economy, as a whole. It focuses on the aggregate changes in the economy such as growth rate, gross domestic product, unemployment, and inflation. Microeconomics looks at the behavior of how individuals, groups and businesses make decisions at the small scale, including topics such as: marginal utility and demand; diminishing returns and supply; elasticity of demand and supply; market structures; role of prices and profits in determining resource allocation.

GCSE and IGCSE Economics Tuition

Students who study GCSE or IGCSE Economics learn how consumers, producers and governments interact in markets, nationally and internationally. This course introduces students to the basic economics concepts and helps them develop the appropriate range of analytical, critical and reasoning skills to enable them to begin to think as economists. Not many students elect to study Economics at GCSE and most schools cannot offer it in an already over-crowded GCSE curriculum. GCSE Exam Boards for Economics include AQA, OCR, IGCSE Edexcel, CCEA.

GCSE Economics should increase a student's understanding of the world in which they live and enable them to engage more effectively with current and historical economic issues on a local, national and global level. Students will develop economic knowledge, understanding and skills, and be able to read and comprehend articles written by leading economists. They should also be able to consider the ethical, moral and sustainability issues that arise as a result of the impact of economic activity.

A-Level Economics Tuition

At A-Level, students explore different types of economic behaviour in order to understand different factors and how they interrelate; they evaluate economic models and policies; they investigate why markets fail in the free market system and what governments can do to solve this; they investigate economic problems such as inflation and unemployment, along with the best policies that governments can adopt.

Economics is a rigorous academic subject and is well respected by top universities. Many A-Level students will go on to pursue university degrees in Economics and other business-related subjects, with many choosing career paths in finance. However, the wide variety of skills developed through this course will also provide a solid foundation for a host of other degrees and careers.

The cost of a Economics tutor in Epsom can vary depending on several factors, such as qualifications, experience, and whether Face-to-Face or Online. Private Economics tutors in Epsom may cost anywhere from £15 to £60 per hour. A qualified teacher in Epsom from Teachers To Your Home, will range from £17.50 per hour for online group tuition, to £50 for Face-to-Face A Level Economics Tuition in Epsom.

Face-to-face tuition in Epsom allows for direct interaction and personalized attention from the Economics tutor. It provides a more structured learning environment and can help students stay more motivated and focused. On the other hand, online tuition offers more flexibility in terms of scheduling and location. Students can access Economics tutoring from anywhere and online sessions can be recorded for future reference. Online tuition also tends to be more affordable and can offer a wider range of Economics tutors and subjects. Ultimately, the best choice depends on the individual student's needs and preferences. Younger or SEN students may benefit more from face-to-face tuition, while older students may prefer the convenience and flexibility of online tuition.

Group Economics tutoring provides a supportive environment where students can work together, learn from one another and engage in collaborative problem-solving. It provides students with a variety of perspectives and ideas, which can lead to a deeper understanding of the subject matter. Being in a group allows students to work together, communicate effectively, and develop teamwork skills. Group Economics tutoring is often less expensive than one-on-one Economics tutoring, making it more accessible for students who need extra help.

Not every child in Epsom needs a Economics tutor, but there are many scenarios where tuition will be beneficial. The obvious is if a child is not attending school for whatever reason. If they are at school, a Economics tutor may be needed to stop a student from falling behind, which can lead to disillusionment and behavioural issues; or to get back on track after a poor end-of-year exam result. If a specific learning difficulty or Special Educational Need (SEN) is identified, then Economics Tuition in Epsom can provide a vital reinforcement. For high stakes exams, such as 11+, Common Entrance (often 13+) for schools in Epsom, GCSE and A-Level or IB, tuition can provide that final boost to get over the line, the stretch to reach the top grades required for the next stage of education, or assistance with specific exam techniques that may not be taught at school.
