Designed Learning Strategies for our courses.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We work with the students based on their school curriculum while building their reading, writing, and critical analysis skills.
At Queen Elizabeth Academy, we're known for providing international standard education to our students. Our students are always at the top wherever they go. Some are currently studying in top universities with scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $23,000. By the time our students go into universities, they must have built a strong foundation, which helps them pursue their path in universities. Some of them have been admitted into top medical schools, some are pursuing their Masters and Ph.D., and some are working for leading firms.
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.
