Reportedly a whopping $1 Billion is spent on private tuition per year.

WHAT SETS MR. WONG APART
Mr. Wong understands that true education comes from holistic guidance, from a teacher who aims to sharpen the sword of the dedicated student's minds and that the greatest profit and satisfaction a tutor can get is in seeing his pupils flourish and perform in competitions and in life.
Mr. Wong is empathetic, and feels for the hardships parents face in order to bring up their children, and the blood, sweat and tears they have to shed, so as to make ends meet in order to give their children the best they can.
Mr. Wong is a through-and-through educator with a desire to help students who have the talent and drive to get ahead but, lack guidance and need a helping hand to show them the way to a better understanding of Economics, better grades and a better life ahead.

Mr. Wong is aware that students need more than just in-class assistance and that sometimes, lesson doubts and clarifications are necessary to be cleared after class as well.

Indeed, it is tough to go it alone with all the peer pressure and family expectations to boot. Mr. Wong's calling in life is to help his students in any way possible - he aims to reduce their burden scholastically but, he also takes care to encourage and motivate as well.
There will always be private tutors out there who are in it purely for the money - which is why parents and students need to be careful in selecting the right tutor because education involves young lives and their futures which are at stake - this career cannot just be about making money! It is just not ethical!
Mr. Wong ensures that he has phone or face-to-face conversations with parents and students alike, so that they understand his beliefs and motivations, and to ensure them that his students student do not merely get an ‘extra’ lesson when they enroll with him, but instead, lessons that potentially add as much or more value than a regular school class.
