SINGAPORE, June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthony Fok has achieved celebrity status in Singapore as a 'superstar' tutor for A-level Economics. In 2012, he founded JCEconomics.com, an A-level Economics tuition center that has consistently produced top-scoring students. Fok has received major media coverage and an entry in the Singapore Book of Records as the highest earning Economics tutor (S$800,000 last year). He has also written 13 Economics guidebooks.
Fok started making headlines eight years ago, when he became sought after as a 'super tutor', with the ability to deliver excellent results. Having previously worked as a tax consultant, Fok felt the call to teach, eventually finding that private tutoring enabled him to reach students from a wider range of backgrounds. He is currently studying for a PhD in education.
Among other newspaper and media articles, which featured his extremely high income, Fok was also quoted in a Straits Times' 'Home' piece on national exams and education.
"Many students try to memorize answers when preparing for exams but in recent years, exam questions have not tended to be repeated," stated Fok. "There is no way of assuring a passing grade even if a student memorizes all the questions and answers. Consequently, students at JCEconomics.com are taught by linking economic theories to real-world scenarios using newspaper and magazine articles."
In the same newspaper, Fok was also featured last year for his unusual and inspirational career path, going from 'number cruncher' to super tutor, to founder of a hugely successful tuition business, to doctoral candidate. He has also been interviewed by Today for his views on how tuition classes can complement the traditional school curriculum and was described as "an inspirational and dedicated teacher."
Other media recognition includes his advice on money and economics on Official938LIVE radio's 'Money and Sense' segment, and various features in magazines such as: Singapore Business Review, Popular, Teenage, Singapore's Child and Today's Parents.
"When students achieve distinctions, I don't take all the credit," says Fok. "Achieving distinctions is never a given. My formula to success is being genuinely passionate about teaching and putting 100% effort into helping students improve. Hard work, hard work and hard work!"
