PRIVATE ECONOMICS TUTORING
Since 2005, we’ve helped students improve their confidence and grades in all levels of Economics.
We’re especially proud of the fact that other educators (teachers and professors) and high profile members of the Princeton University Administration trust us with their children’s academic success and recommend our services to others.
Our economics tutors have excelled in both microeconomics and macroeconomics and can help your child improve her test scores and confidence come test day.

What parents say about our Economics tutors
Our team includes award-winning Princeton University undergrads and Master’s/PhD graduates who are rigorously screened and are extremely effective at communicating the material.
A quick “case study”:
A former client reached out to us for her daughter, who was now a junior in college. She needed help with college-level economics (Intermediate Microeconomic Theory).
She struggled with some of the topics and requested support to reinforce concepts, complete practice problems, and prepare for quizzes/tests.
We matched her with Daniela, a PhD Candidate in International Health Economics and Princeton University graduate.
The sessions went well and the mother was appreciative of Daniela’s ability to identify specific problem areas and was thankful for Daniela’s “continued advice and practice”.
The sessions went very well. Daniela was able to pinpoint and address specific problem areas and the mother was appreciative and thankful for Daniela’s “continued advice and practice”.
We regularly track progress
Progress reports are shared after every session so you always know what’s going on.
A Real-Life Example:
Subject(s): AP Economics
Time Tutored: 10:00 – 11:00
We went through the basics of supply, demand, the laws of supply and demand, supply and demand functions, the graph, what a market is and what it looks like, and the determinants of supply and demand.
As discussed, it will likely take two sessions this week to best equip Sanjana moving forward. I’m interested in getting her up to speed in units 2 and 6 so we can start drawing from FRQs.
Until then, as we discussed, it will be valuable to have tests that I draw up so that we can test her progress so far. I’ll be in touch over the specifics of these and our next sessions. As we discussed, we can do a weekday session by skype and a weekend session in person.
Assignments for Next Week:
Modules 7, 8, and 9 from the Krugman. In terms of our progression, we’ll be finishing Sections 1 and 2 (which are the sections I hope to create a test for soon and test), and then move onto sections 9, 10, and 14 (which will provide us enough content to start testing from actual AP material.
How is your child performing in economics?LEARN HOW WE CAN HELP
Addresses common student issues
A deep understanding of the subject matter allows us to personalize our approach.
Why is Economics important?
Many of our students who request help with economics are preparing for either the AP Microeconomics or AP Macroeconomics exams. We also have a surprising number of requests for college level Economics.
While the study of Economics isn’t required for admissions to college, it’s helpful to have knowledge of basic economic theory.
Why do some students struggle with Economics?
As with all AP courses, which cover information equivalent to a college course, there is a lot of material. In addition, the free-response questions on the AP exam require students to not only understand the underlying concepts (which are also tested in the multiple-choice section), but to apply their knowledge of economics to essay questions. These free-response questions require organizational and analytical skills, as well as the ability to combine interrelated concepts.
