Designed Learning Strategies for our courses.
Our tutors follow a one-on-one technique to understand the students' learning gaps. Additionally, we use personalized lessons covering all fundamental concepts and a step-by-step explanation method when handling homework.
Unlike many other subjects, math and science are cumulative. Hence, successful students must be able to build a strong foundation to ensure long term success. This is why we focus on teaching concepts in our math and science classes. In math and science, the best tutoring approach is helping students to understand the concepts and principles instead of memorizing materials.
During our math and science tutoring sessions, we provide easy-to-understand, step-by-step explanations. Our tutors pay attention to each student`s foundational gaps and re-explain where necessary.
To build a good math foundation, the student must learn some skills in Grade 7 or 8. These skills include fractions, integers, and algebra. In high school, they proceed to graphing, solving equations, and quadratic equations. If students fails to learn these skills, they'll likely struggle with math year after year. With sufficient practice and proper lessons, foundational gaps can be addressed.
Most students are used to memorizing math instead of learning the principles that go into each solution. The issue with this approach is that the students will not be able to solve similar other questions. This leads to the loss of marks eventually. To understand math is to understand the “why” behind the concepts or steps, and know when to apply “what”. We use a step-by-step explanation approach to teach our students the concepts.
At QEA, we focus on re-addressing each student's foundational gaps and helping them build stronger foundations. We also provide several practice questions to help them improve their skills.
Nowadays, students are accustomed to text, thanks to instant messaging. Unfortunately, the habit carries through to school work. Inevitably, their writing is poor, lacks good grammar and sentence structure. QEA uses a step-by-step approach to re-instill discipline in the student and addresses the challenge.
Critical thinking makes up a large portion of every student`s English grades in high school. But many students tend to simply state the plot summary in their school essays instead of writing a proper critical analysis. This leads to a loss of grades. We teach students to overcome this challenge by helping them understand the plot of a story and linking that plot to other themes in the story.
At QEA, our tutors help each student master the use of English, especially reading comprehension, essay writing, snd critical analysis skills. without deviating from the school's curriculum.
Queen Elizabeth Academy has a strong culture for providing high-quality education to students. Our past students have entered top universities on scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $23,000. All students of QEA often build strong foundations before leaving. Some of them are in medical schools, some are pursuing their masters and Ph.D., while others work for top Bay St. firms and global companies.
QE has a strong track record on supporting our students to academic excellence and long term success. Our tutoring program is private one on one, tailored towards the strengths and weaknesses of your child. Our tutoring program is lesson based, which means we don't sit back and wait for questions, because often times they don't know what to ask. We actively teach lessons and provide weekly homework for practice.
QE provides quality education. What does this mean? To achieve high grade, it is important to have a systematic approach to build your child's foundation: Lessons, Homework Practice and coaching. For lessons, we actively teach the materials, organizing knowledge in step by step manner. This way, we facilitate understanding, not memorizing equations or steps. We provide package of homework practice, so that our students can learn a variety of problems and prepare well for tests. We also provide past tests and mock exams, such that we teach test writing techniques to optimize their performance.
Academic excellence comes with understanding and hardwork. We take care of the understanding part in our lessons, where we teach the concepts in a easy-to-understand manner. to acheive high grade, the students need to practice and establish a good routine for working through homework. Making their own study notes will be preferred. We also teach test writing strategies, such as tackling multiple choice and complex application questions.
QE is Ministry accredited, which means we offer high school courses. We know the curriculum of each subject inside-out. We know what foundation building block is important leading to the next grade. As we have worked with 5,000+ students over the past 9 years, we are familiar with the common weakness and challenge they face on each subject. Therefore, we focus on what matters most to achieve success. Our students were admitted to top universities: Waterloo, Laurier, Queen's, Western, McGill with scholarship from $2,000 to $50,000.
The average tenure of our tutors at QE is at least 3 years. Many of our tutors stay with QE for 5-6 years. In this way, they are experienced and have worked with hundreds of students. Many of them have taught our 110 hours credit course. New tutors need to go through a rigorous audition process in order to join QE. This includes showing indepth knowledge in our test and being able to explain concepts in a way that students can understand.
We charge per month (4 or 8 lessons a month). Depending on the program, we offer very competitive and fair rate. We provide much more value than the average tutoring centers or go-to-home agencies: successful experience, coaching, homework package, mock tests and exams, test writing strategies and lesson based tutoring.
