Designed Learning Strategies for our courses.
We use a one-on-one teaching technique to understand the needs of our students in classes. We also use personalized lessons that cover rudimentary and critical concepts and step-by-step explanation methods for homework.
Every lesson in math and science is a building block. Therefore, successful students must build a strong foundation, which is essential for long term success. This is why we focus on teaching concepts in our math and science classes. This helps the students to understand instead of memorizing things. This tutoring approach is essential in building the students’ foundation.
From experience, we`ve noticed that providing easy-to-understand, step-by-step explanations during science and math classes always works best. During each session, our tutors pay attention to the students` foundational gaps and re-explain where necessary.
To build a good math foundation, some skills must be learned in Grade 7 or 8. This includes fractions, integers, and algebra. Advanced ones include graphing, equations, geometry, and quadratics. Without these necessary skills, students will most likely struggle with math from one grade to another. With sufficient practice, the students eventually brightens up.
Students tend to memorize math, rather than understanding it. But math is better understood than memorized, which is why problem arise for the students when the teacher changes the question. To avoid losing marks, it is better to understand the “why” behind every concept and step, and also know how and when to apply them. We help students learn essential concepts, using step-by-step explanation.
In foundational building, we re-address our students' learning gaps by helping them understand rather than memorizing. And with enough practice questions, they get to strengthen their understanding and skills.
These days, students are accustomed to writing short messages. Unfortunately, the habit finds its way into school writing work. Such students` grammatical constructions inevitably lack good structure. QEA uses a step-by-step approach to discipline the student and addresses this challenge.
Critical thinking is an essential aspect of the English language as a subject in high school. Many students are accustomed to stating the plot summary in their essays instead of providing proper critical analysis. Of course, this tells on their grades. We teach students how to glean deep insights from a story and then link the plot to other relevant themes in the story.
QEA tutors help each student master the English language skills, such as reading comprehension, essay writing, snd critical analysis skills, without deviating from their school's curriculum.
Queen Elizabeth Academy has a notable reputation for providing high-quality education to our students. Most of our past students have been admitted to top universities on scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $23,000. Every past student of QEA can attest to having built a strong foundation under our tutelage. Some of our students are in medical schools, some also are pursuing their masters and Ph.D., while others currently work for top Bay St. firms and international 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.
