Economics

The original core team of economics tutors at Cambridge Coaching was drawn from the economics departments at Harvard and MIT, and the MBA programs at Harvard Business School and MIT’s Sloan School of Management. Our expanded team now includes doctoral candidates in economics at Columbia, NYU, and Princeton, as well as MBA candidates from the most selective programs.

We have deep experience teaching every economics topic at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate level. Many of our students come to us for help with the two foundational economics courses - microeconomics and macroeconomics - and we have tutors who have helped hundreds of students survive (and even enjoy) these notoriously difficult classes. Our tutors also work with graduate and MBA students on research and advanced coursework, including econometrics and impact evaluations.  In short, whether you’re struggling with utility functions, or need help calculating a P-value, Cambridge Coaching has the tutor for you.

In all tutorials, we take a highly structured and personalized approach to ensure that our students receive the most effective and comprehensive tutoring available.

 

Popular Subjects: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Industrial Economics, Economic Development, Financial Markets, Game Theory, Economic Theory, Econometrics
