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.

Tuition with a qualified Economics teacher at your home in Great Missenden costs from £48.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified Economics teacher costs from £42.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and Economics tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves an Economics tutor coming to your home in Great Missenden to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the Economics tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the Economics tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the Economics tutor is required to travel to your home, in Great Missenden. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your Economics tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your Economics tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of Economics tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group Economics tuition in Great Missenden depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
