Improve your economics grades with the help of a Superprof tutor

By studying economics, you'll learn about money, wealth, how it's produced, and how it's consumed. At school, economics isn't a compulsory subject, but you can choose to study it at GCSE, A Level, and university if you have an interest in it or would like to work in one of the many fields that require economics qualifications.

Let's look at the advantages of studying economics, the challenges you'll face when you do, what you can learn about economics in school, and how private tutors can help with your studies.

The Advantages of Studying Economics

We alluded to the fact that there are quite a few jobs that you can do with an economics qualification. Whether you want to work in finance, accounting, management, or business, experience with economics and the appropriate qualification will certainly help.

In economics, you'll learn about finance, accounting, and the economy, you'll also learn several transferrable skills that you can use in any situation like communication, problem-solving, how to do research, and time-management. This means that even if you eventually decide that economics isn't for you, you'll have skills that you can use in other lines of work.

Challenges in Economics

Given the benefits, you'd think that everyone would be studying an economics degree at university. However, there are some challenges and downsides to economics that put a lot of people off.

For one, economics relies heavily on mathematics and if your numeracy skills aren't great or you don't particularly like maths, economics isn't very appealing. While you can drop maths after GCSE if you don't like it, students wanting to study economics at university often require an A Level in mathematics to be accepted onto the course.

Economics is also very conceptual and you can't see the concepts that you're learning about. Hands-on learners can struggle with this and it can help them an awful lot to read about and study real-life examples to better wrap their head around their economics lessons.

Areas of Economics Studied at School

Students interested in economics can get their first real taste of the subject by studying a GSCE in the subject. To give you an idea of what you can learn about, we've used the AQA exam as an example. Of course, different exam boards differ but the overall course content for every exam board is quite similar.

Students will study markets and economic foundations, resource allocation, how prices are determined, production, costs, revenue, and profit, competitive and concentrated markets, and market failure.

They'll also look at how the economy works and study the national economy, how the government manages the economy, international trade and the global economy, and the role of money in financial markets.

Beyond GCSE, they can move onto A Level economics and study the subject at university. However, as we said, you'll probably still need to study maths at A Level, too.

Private Tuition in Economics

If you need help studying economics at any level, consider looking to private tutors. The main problem with studying economics at school, college, or university is that you'll be a face in a crowd of several students and even the best teachers don't have the time or resources to adapt each lesson to every individual student.

A private economics tutor will ensure that the learning experience is tailored to you, your strengths and weaknesses, and how you like to learn to get the most out of every hour you spend studying together.

The same is true of every subject. Whether you need help with English, mathematics, statistics, biology, or just studying for an exam, having an experienced and qualified tutor there can help you get the most out of every minute you spend studying.

Finding Economics Tutors in Birmingham

If you've decided that tutoring is right for you, you can start looking for private tutors in Birmingham by using the Superprof website.

Just search for economics and your address and you'll be able to browse the profile of all the local tutors in the area. You can also broaden your search to include the West Midlands or even look for online tutors if you'd prefer. View each suitable tutor's profile paying particular attention to their experience and the reviews left by other students that they've taught in the past.

You'll also want to look at the level they teach as tutors specialising in BSc Economics mightn't be the best option for children who need help with maths, economics, and science at GCSE, for example. Generally, the higher the level, the more you'll pay for your tutor, too. GCSE and A Level tutors tend to be cheaper than those teaching university students.

Online tutors tend to charge less than face-to-face tutors as they don't have to travel, but every tutor's profile is different and there are a lot of factors that will affect their rates. With academic subjects such as economics, maths, chemistry, physics, or biology, online tuition can often be just as effective as face-to-face tuition as a lot of what's being taught is theoretical or conceptual so the tutor doesn't necessarily need to be there in the room.

Don't forget that a lot of home tutors on Superprof offer the first hour for free. You can use these free lessons and sessions to interview the tutor or just discuss how they can help, ask them about their fees, or see if they're right for you or your child. If you're going to be spending years with the same tutor through secondary school or a business degree, you'll want to make sure that their tutoring is right for you.

The type of tutoring that's right for one student may not be right for another as we all learn in different ways so you need to find a tutor whose teaching approach is right for you and whose fees are right for your budget.
