From 1st of May 2021



Our Story

The Social Scientist Academy aims to meet the learning needs of students taking the Singapore GCE A-Level Economics examinations. While there are plenty of online economics resources, few cater specifically for the latest Singapore GCE A-Level H2 9757 and H1 8823 syllabus.

Our team is made up of Singapore based economists and educators well versed in the latest syllabus, examination structure and learning needs of students. Articles and resources are written using our carefully designed framework with the sole intention of enabling students to learn the various economics topics and issues in a purposeful and meaningful manner.


We started as a physical tuition centre but on 1st of May 2021, we have migrated to a 100% online tuition centre. 

That is why our mission at the Social Scientist Academy is "Purposeful Lesson & Meaningful Learning". We want to develop future generations of social scientists who are well-versed with global and domestic issues concerning society as well as a better understanding about the relationships among individuals.

I started Mr Ben’s class in J1. His lessons helped me build a strong foundation since JC1. Mr Ben always prepared me well for test and exams in school, allowing me to achieve consistently good results in school. Eventually, with his help I achieved an A for Econs for my A levels. He never fails to clear my doubts and queries that I have, be it through texts or during lessons. He is definitely an amazing Econs tutor!

Mr Thong taught me how to de-emphasize rote learning and instead how to work through and make sense of the theories, concepts and the graphs taught in school. It was a reminder of how learning should be done. That helped to improve my train of thought and presentation of economics ideas on paper, as I was truly able to understand the question and concepts, and piece them together rather than simply regurgitating ideas.

Mr Ben is very clear when he explains economic concepts to me, and he would usually give me real world examples so that i could apply it and understand the concepts more easily. He always has a goal for each session, and has the lessons well planned, so each lesson was always fruitful for me! He also paced the lessons really well, so that i could keep up with the curriculum in school. Although I started lessons with him later and were quite behind my school's lessons, we managed to catch up. He would also rephrase and reteach concepts that I was unclear of and was always willing to answer the questions I had. Because of Mr Ben, I had a deeper understanding to most of the concepts as compared to my peers and were able to guide my friends along most of the time as well!
