Economics is the study of the processes governing production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. Introductory economics classes seek to familiar students with fundamental economic concepts such as macroeconomics (the system as a whole), microeconomics (individual decision makers with the economic system), international economics, and personal finance. Students learn to interpret economic data and describe economics concepts. The AP Program offers separate courses that focus in depth on macroeconomics and microeconomics, bringing a greater level of scrutiny to each than is possible in a general economic survey class

The Learning Island provides private one-on-one tutoring in all aspects of the social sciences. Our tutors work with students and their parents to assess where each student is right now and to develop a customized lesson plan tailored to his or her needs. We help by streamlining historical narratives and breaking down complex historical and political concepts into manageable pieces that students can easily understand. Tutors take apart daunting economic models and explain them in clear, straightforward ways.

We provide students with the tools to read smarter and more critically, study better, and make the most productive use of their homework time. Tutors also help students learn how to research, write, and revise papers and other assignments. Finally, we provide comprehensive reviews and study sessions for exams. Whether a student is seriously struggling or simply needs a little extra help with a difficult class, we can help them improve and grow to be their best.
