The website supporting students of Economics

Economicstutor.com.au has been created by Romeo Salla, an Australian economics educator and former federal treasury economist. It offers support to students of economics, particularly those undertaking a secondary economics course in Australia. 

October Student programs

During early October, Romeo Salla will be hosting five distinct 90 minute zoom sessions covering each of the five areas of study in VCE Economics.  Each session will focus on the difficult parts of that particular area of study and run through a series of exercises designed to help students apply their knowledge of that area of study to effectively answer examination questions.  The cost for each of the five sessions is $25 (or $100 for all five sessions).

'We use economicstutor as both a place where our students can consolidate their learning as well as provide them with extension tasks to develop a greater understanding of individual topics. The range of tasks as well and the interactive nature of the site provide students with an opportunity to engage with the course outside of the classroom. We have found the site to be of great assistance in the development of their knowledge and understanding.'

'We have subscribed to this site for a number of years and it has provided the Economics teachers and students at Geelong Grammar with lots of excellent exercises and activities to help them apply their knowledge of the VCE Economics course. The new look site in 2020 makes it even easier to navigate through parts of the course, and the depth and breadth of the exercises, including the insightful explanations, is proving to be a real support. The ability to project the interactive multi choice and short answer questions also provides teachers with the flexibility to change gears and offer fun and challenging class activities. It comes highly recommended.'
Lou Spanos

'Our school has been a long term subscriber to economicstutor for many years. The notes are simple and logical, but with significant detail to allow students to gain a better understanding of some of the key concepts in the study design, that some other resources may not provide. The questions and activities also provide additional material to assist students at various levels who are looking for alternate content to consolidate their knowledge and skills in the lead up to key assessments. These exercises test the understanding of students of various levels using a range of interactive stimulii. It has been a valuable resource for our school and is highly recommended.'
