The QEA Approach
to Ottawa students

Tutoring in Ottawa

QEA private tutoring programs use a one-on-one, personalized teaching method that covers essential concepts, along with a step-by-step guide on homework problems.

1. Building Foundations

Math and science are learned one step at a time, with each lesson building onto the next one. If the students miss one or more steps, they'll likely to have issues proceeding. This is why building a good foundation is essential for the student’s long term success. This is why we teach concepts in our math and science classes. Students tend to memorize materials, but it's not a good approach for building the student’s foundation.

2. Step by step explanations

During math and science sessions, we identify the students` foundational gaps, re-explain the steps to clarify any misunderstanding, using easy-to-understand, step-by-step guidance.

Build your Math foundations and confidence with QEA #1 rated math tutoring program

Learning math is like climbing up a ladder, one rung at a time. So, previous grade levels serve as building blocks for the current one. Therefore, students need to understand the underlying concepts and be able to apply them. But lots of students prefer memorizing math to understanding the principles behind the solution. This creates foundational gaps that often come back to hurt their grades.

Queen Elizabeth Academy is recognized by the Ministry of Education. With our experience and expertise in the curriculum and foundational building, we can help your child learn foundational basics with easy-to-understand lessons and a step-by-step explanation.

Common challenges that most students encounter in math:

1. Weak foundational skills in math

Grade 7 or 8 are usually the best places to start, if a student is to build good math foundational skills. Some of these skills include fractions, integers, and algebra, but at the high school level, graphing, solving equations, quadratics are critical. Without learning these foundational skills, a student will struggle with math unit by unit, year by year. Our tutors address the foundational gap with proper lessons and practice problems.

2. Memorize instead of understand

Students tend to memorize math, instead of understanding the principles involved. But when the teacher changes the question, the students become confused and stuck. To understand math is to understand the “why” behind the concepts or steps, and know when to use “what”. Our math lessons focus on teaching the concepts, using a step-by-step explanation.

The QEA math tutoring program is one on one, private.

Our focus is on foundational building and re-addressing learning gaps to help students understand instead of memorizing. With additional practice questions, they usually get better.

Build your English foundational skills - writing, reading comprehension, and critical analysis

English is an essential high school subject, as all university admission requires good English grades. Scoring good English grades is dependent on having a set of skills, which are essay writing, reading comprehension, grammar, and critical analysis.

QEA English tutoring program focuses on building these English 3 skills: reading comprehension, essay writing, and critical analysis. We support the students based on their school curriculum while we help them develop these critical skills. For example, in our essay writing classes, we teach students how to write interesting opening paragraphs, write an insightful thesis, and build meaningful arguments with quotes from Shakespeare's works or their novels.


Common challenges that most students encounter in English:

1. Students lack proper sentence structures

With the advent of technology, instant messaging has taken over writing letters. While this is good, it makes students lazy. They use poor grammar and bad sentence structure in school writing work. QEA lessons discipline the students into using proper English structure and grammar, while they develop their writing skills in a step-by-step approach.

2. Students’ essays lack critical analysis and are penalized for marks.

Critical thinking forms a significant portion of English grades in high school. Many students are weak when it comes to critical things. Critical thinking helps in providing proper critical analysis, which results in better grades. We teach students to go deeper into the story, understand the plot, and how it is connected to other themes in the story.

The QEA English tutoring program is one on one, private.

We work with the students based on their school curriculum while building their reading, writing, and critical analysis skills.
