SINGAPORE, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For a good while, Anthony Fok has become accustomed to celebrity status as one of Singapore's 'super tutors'; however, he has now added to his fame by being the first millionaire tutor to be featured on CNBC in an article written by Dan Murphy in September 2016.
Fok founded JCEconomics.com, an A-level Economics tuition center, in 2012 and is consistently oversubscribed and has had parents offering up to $20,000 to guarantee an 'A' grade for their child. While Fok does not accept offers like this, he remains one of the highest-earning Economics teachers in Singapore.
In the highly competitive environment that faces high school students seeking higher education, good A-level grades are keenly striven for. The CNBC article mentions the "high stakes tuition culture in Singapore" and suggests that the pressure to obtain good grades impacts on students' wellbeing. There is the possibility that the current attitude may be gradually changing but meanwhile students and their parents still want those high grades – and many parents are able and willing to pay a high price for tuition to obtain them. Many of Fok's students credit him with turning them from failure to success, claiming that they have increased their understanding of the subject due to his teaching. Of the students enrolled in his classes, around 50% score 'A' grades and 85% earn either an 'A' or a 'B'.
Fok is currently reducing his teaching hours to enable him to pursue a PhD in education; however, he remains available to students via text and phone 24/7 in order to answer queries or help with questions the student may be finding difficult. In addition to his teaching schedule, Fok has written guidebooks on Economics.
