The QEA Approach to Tutoring

 - How is our tutoring lessons run?

Tutoring in Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington

Queen Elizabeth Academy’s private tutoring programs offer a one on one, personalized lessons that covers the concepts with step by step explanation on homework problems.

QEA approach to Tutoring
- how is our lessons run?
The QE Standard and How We Make a Difference
tutoring in Mississauga
1. Learning with a structure

Students achieve their best when they have a structural way of learning with routine practice. What do we mean by this? It means that we provide proper lessons to review over the concept, going over problems (homework or our worksheets) step by step, provide homework and in many subjects, mock exams to practice.

QE approach to structural and systematic learning
  • Proper lesson to review the concepts
  • Going over homework step by step
  • Providing extra worksheets that mimic test problems
  • Mock exams

For instance, many students did not perform well, because the homework assigned to them in school were much easier than the tests. This is a common problem and one reason why they couldn't achieve the 80's and 90's. As a result, we provide extra worksheets that mimic the level of difficulty as the tests, so that students can get accustomed and practice at a higher level

Homework practice is critical to achieving success, and we strongly believe in this. We assign homework package to students after the session, and random check them at the beginning of the next session.

Queen Elizabeth provides this important combination of lesson / concepts + application problems + homework. This is one reason why our students have achieved outstanding success, building foundation and admitted to top universities in the past 9 years.

Most of our competitors will sit back and wait for questions from the students, such as "what problem do you have today?". This is not effective, because students who are struggling don't know what to ask in the first place. We actively teach the lesson and review the concepts and problems, and it works.

tutoring in Mississauga
2. Focus on understanding of the concepts and build foundation

Our student's understanding of the concept is critical in our lessons. The first step to understanding is to know what it is, in a way that the student can explain in their own words. For example, Derivative, one of the toughest concepts in calculus (grade 12) is simply a slope equation, where one can find a slope at any point on the graph. Once the student understands this out of a mist of algebraic complexity and proofs, it will be a ah-ha moment, where everything else will start making sense. In other words, they are ready to take on and expand their understanding on the complex algebra. You never start with the complex algebra first, you start with the basic understanding of the concept.

The second important approach is to know "why". Often times students will tend to memorize the steps, and when the teacher changes the questions on test, this will fall apart. In our lessons, we attempt to help students to understand why they perform a certain step what is this step for ? what is the goal of this problem? And from there we show them our explanation.

tutoring in Mississauga
3. Our tutor team have deep understanding of the curriculum - we run a Ministry inspected private school

QE is a Ministry inspected private school for 9 years. We offer these private credit courses ourselves. Our tutors have access to all our teaching materials and lesson plans, and have deep knowledge of the curriculum. This means that we know the building block from one grade to another, what to focus on, what are the common challenges for students at a certain grade.

For instance, in grade 10 and 11, one of the common challenges for students is factoring (Trinomial). This foundation skill will carry on to grade 12 Advanced Functions and calclulus. If the student don't master it, they will lose marks on step 2 or 3 on many problems throughout all the units. On their tests, it appears to be careless errors, but in reality they have a foundation gap.

tutoring in Mississauga
4. Our Tutors

QE tutor team is like a large family. We are a team, and our tutors average tenure is 3 years. This is different from our competitors who are agency or center, where their tutors are freelancers come and go, and once the customer buy in, they frequently switch tutors.

Our tutors are trained and specialized in their areas. In our Math team, for instance, we have tutors who handle elementary students, tutors who teaches junior high school and ones who focus on the senior high school level. The skill and teaching approach for each level is different. The younger kids required more explanation and repetitive practice, whereas a grade 12 student requires a fast pace lesson, focusing on the tough problems they will face on tests.

We will never place a science tutor to teach English, which other tutoring place often does. Our English tutor team members all have major in English literature and specialized in this area. Same for science and math.

Our learning strategies are used in our private credit courses and in some of our tutoring programs

To strengthen a student’s understanding of a concept, there are 3 key elements that we employ in our tutoring sessions:

1.
tutoring Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington
Understanding is more than just memorizing equations.  The student needs to clearly define the concept and its boundaries.
2.
tutors Burlington
The student needs to understand when to apply the concept.  This comes with practice in applying the concept to many problems, so that the student can begin to recognize the pattern.
3.
science tutor Georgetown
Any math or science concept can be deduced to 4 or 5 simple rules.  These rules should be “boxed” and constantly looked up when the student is practicing problems after a tutoring session

Grade 12
The Course

Grade 12 Advanced Functions is an essential course for many students, as it is a pre-requisite course for a significant number of university programs. Students typically build on the skills they learned in the preceding grades. Some of the skills to be learned in this course include factoring, graphing, trigonometry, and exponents. It is expected that students will have varying levels of proficiency and understanding when during this course. This is because some units like polynomial functions are more straightforward than others, such as trigonometric functions and proofs.

Considering the thrills and challenges that students typically encounter when taking this course, some of them have described it as a roller coaster ride of a course.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Advanced Functions for Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington students

In mathematics, foundations are always important, so it would be an excellent idea to brush up on math foundations before delving into this course. Critical areas include factoring (especially trinomial factoring), domain and range, graphing, combining rational expressions, and trigonometry ratios. If, on the other hand, you decide to brush up when the course begins, you may have a hard time staying abreast of the new material being taught. Mathematics courses usually build upon your previous knowledge, so be sure to review them.

Also, ensure to keep good, organized notes to enable you to keep a decent place as each course unit progresses. Also, be brave enough to practice new problems on your own and endeavor to go beyond those assigned in the homework. This will give you enough room to master the wide variety of concepts and questions in Advanced Functions. Ultimately, the more you expose yourself to such problems, the better prepared you will be. In light of this, the Queen Elizabeth Academy tutoring program provides all students with extra worksheets and practice tests to hone their skills for success.

The Course

There are two different sections in this course; the first is derivative or extends from work in Advanced Functions; the second other is Vectors, which, unlike the first, is totally new. Vectors are essentially similar to Physics when it comes to problem-solving.

The derivative section takes root in work done in Advanced Functions and will typically include algebra, graphing, trigonometry, and logarithms.

The vector aspect of the course includes 3D equations of lines and planes. Because of the similarity of vector problem-solving to physics, many students find this course component more complicated than the first one.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Vector Calculus for Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington students

For students to succeed in Vector Calculus, they must be proficient in exponents, factoring, combining rational expressions such as fractions with algebra, and solving equations.

You want to pay special attention to the Optimization Unit, which usually includes many word problems. However, if you have trouble dealing with word problems, be sure to prepare for this unit in particular. Do not forget to keep your notes organized while you identify the different kinds of problems. This will significantly help you to clarify the concepts in the course, and to keep track of your progress

The concepts of vectors are very complex. So when approaching vector problems, be sure to layout and write down all of the steps clearly. Also, write down why such steps are necessary. For instance, what variable are you attempting to achieve with each step? This approach will undoubtedly simplify even more complicated questions and allow you to easily identify areas where you need additional help.

The Course

Grade 12 Chemistry is one of the most challenging courses in Ontario high schools, and it's the same with Physics. As with typical chemistry problems, many of the questions are based on possible outcomes since Chemistry deals with so many diverse elements (e.g., what is the product of reacting chemical X with Y).

Many students are not familiar with this type of problem-solving strategy, so they prefer step-based or formulaic-based problems. But science students cannot escape this in the university, so they'll have to learn the skills.

The complexity of the concepts in Grade 12 Chemistry is high and may sometimes be frustrating. They include enthalpy, orbitals, equilibrium, and organic nomenclature, which most chemistry students usually find tasking.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Chemistry, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington students

A vital tip to remember when studying chemistry is not to allow yourself to become lost in details. There's always a ‘big picture’ concept in any given unit, so keep an eye out for that. To help you visualize these concepts, it's a good idea to organize your work into a flow chart. This strategy displays the essential concepts and how they're connected one to another. As a result, you'll be able to handle tests much better.

Always try to understand the “why” behind every concept you encounter or the reason a concept is essential instead of merely memorizing things. For example, the boiling point of an organic compound reflects the strength of the intermolecular force of attraction holding its molecules together. A good grasp of these concepts will help you adapt to situational problems in chemistry.

The Course

Physics is a pre-requisite course for those seeking to pursue engineering in the university. As expected, grade 12 Physics builds on your knowledge of grade 11 Physics, so if a student was sound in the preceding grade level, they will likely, with hard work, of course, succeed in Grade 12 Physics.

The Grade 12 Physics University Preparation Course begins with a review of Kinematics (motion) and Dynamics (forces). This is to ensure the students have a solid start. Here, electromagnetism and Light are often the most challenging units.

In Grade 12 Physics, students are expected to excel at problem-solving techniques, particularly in manipulating equations to extract unknown variables and answers.

In this course, the workload is quite heavy and requires lots of practice to comprehend them fully. Therefore, students will need to dedicate a considerable amount of time to score above 85 percent. However, physics is an exciting course, and with the right mindset, it can be very rewarding.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Physics, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington students

Passing physics requires lots of practice, so if you desire to achieve 85% and above, it's advisable to commit up to 6 hours a week to work through new problems in the course.

In Grade 12 physics, some of the units like electromagnetism and light are conceptually difficult. Therefore, to better understand each concept, you should try first to express the problem in plain English. For instance, imagine you are explaining the concept of light to a space alien or your grandmother. How would you describe it? What is an electric field? What is Voltage? If you can comprehend and internalize the concepts, instead of merely memorizing questions, problem-solving will definitely be a lot easier and more fun too.

Grade 11
The Course

In preparing for Grade 12 Mathematics, students must have a solid grasp of Grade 11 Mathematics. Although, what we see is that students at this stage are often faced with the difficult choice of choosing between the Mixed level course and the Academic level course. From experience, we advise students to stick with the Grade 11 Academic Math, as it is a more flexible option. However, the challenge with most students is that the course requires a bit more work. But it also creates multiple opportunities for university programs to pick from, typically ranging from engineering to business courses. So, unless a student is absolutely sure of the path he/she wishes to take after high school, they should stick with a flexible option.

Grade 11 Math has several difficult units, including exponents, transformation, trigonometry graphing, and trigonometry identities. This is also the first time they'll encounter proofs. The simpler units include Quadratics, series, and sequences, which are mostly a review of grade 10 topics.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Mathematics, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington students

It's advisable to build strong foundational skills in grade 10 before taking this course. Factoring (especially trinomials), fractions (grade 8-9 level), Linear systems, and quadratics are the critical skills at this stage. Additionally, students will need a good understanding of domain and range, x and y intercepts, and asymptotes to excel in this course. It is always easier to keep pace with all lessons and course work in this course once the student has mastered the foundational skills

The thing about grade 11 questions is that they involve multiple steps. To ensure an easy flow, you must understand the logic and concept behind each step you take, and then pinpoint why you`re taking those steps. In other words, “what am I trying to solve?” Work through the steps again after you have done this. This is essentially how you demystify mathematical problems.

The Course

In Grade 11, chemistry, students will be acquainted with both theoretical and technical knowledge. And they must be grounded in both areas to do well in the course. You`ll find that there are more calculations and equations in grade 11 chemistry. This means that you need a solid background in math to do well. However, chemistry in grade 11 chemistry isn`t so challenging. Besides, it's a good way to see if chemistry or sciences will be a great choice for you in the university.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Chemistry, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington students

In Grade 11 Chemistry, you will be presented with both theoretical and technical knowledge. And to do well in the course, you must be very good at both. There are lots of calculations to be done, but that doesn`t mean the course is particularly difficult. Perhaps, the biggest benefit here is that and the course allows you to weigh the possibility of pursuing chemistry, or science more generally, in the future.

Here`s a piece of good advice: make sure you have an understanding of Nomenclature as well as how to balance equations in grade 10 science before starting grade 11 chemistry. You really don't want to miss those two courses!

When you get to the calculations in the course, make sure to lay out all the steps one after the other. You may use a flow chart, with each box indicating your result for each step. Examples, in this case, include the values for mass of a chemical, volume of a gas, or the number of particles in a substance. This is a good way to make problem-solving much easier.

The Course

Quite frankly, Grade 11 Physics can be tough, because it involves using lots of formula, which students are expected to know beforehand. Most of the concepts will be very new for many students. In most cases, problem-solving does not follow concrete steps, as in math. So students will need to know all the formulas, as well as how to manipulate different equations to achieve their desired result.

Physics questions are traditionally full of word problems, and that's another area of challenge to most students, because they'll need to understand the questions, interpret them, then extract the given variables and variations. But with practice, even this can be mastered.

Grade 11 physics is a pre-requisite for Grade 12 Physics and an important course for students who wish to pursue engineering or science in university.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Physics, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington students

To excel in grade 11 physics, you can't simply memorize the equations. For your own good, it is far better to understand the reasoning behind every concept. Be sure to visualize the situation so you can identify given variables and variations in each problem. Additionally, you want to be sure you`re applying the equations rightly, instead of blindly following steps or processes.

The complexity of physics is also seen in the use of several equations to solve a single problem. The trick is to identify what you have been given, note their places in the relevant equations, and identify the variables you weren't given in the question. Finally, use this equation or in combination with other equations to find the unknown.

Grade 10
The Course

Climbing up to grade 10 takes you to a higher level of difficulty compared to Grade 9. And this is especially true for students who scored 75% or lower in Grade 9. Grade 10 presents many new concepts, such as quadratics and geometry.

Two of the most common challenges in Grade 10 math include critical thinking and word problems. Therefore, students need to strengthen their foundational skills ahead of Grade 10, especially if they already have gaps in grades 8 and 9. Possible areas where these gaps exist are integers, fractions, and linear equations. Building strong foundations in these areas will help the students learn grade 11 math with ease.

Study Tip for Grade 10 Academic Mathematics for Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington students

In learning grade 10 math, it is better to organize problems into different types. This will help you identify those questions that give you tough times, so that you will be able to focus on them.

Also, you must be ready to commit a great deal of time - different from what the teacher has assigned to you - in solving questions on your own. Students studying math must be ready to commit up to 5 hours of work every week if they must excel in the course. Doing these will help you avoid last-minute studying before any test or exam. Essentially, accumulating your skills and knowledge regularly will help you stay on track.

Grade 9
The Course

Grade 9 math signals a significant departure from grade 8 math. Most times, a lot of students are taken aback at the sharp difference between the two.

Students are introduced to the four essential categories: Knowledge, Application, Thinking, and Communication. Quite noticeably, many of them are usually not accustomed to this marking scheme.

By and large, grade 9 math is more of a word problem than other middle school courses. Consequently, the students will need to develop strong skills here, and quickly too, if they must do well. We see lots of students give up here, thinking that they will never do well in math. Whereas everyone who puts in the necessary work will do excellently well in math.
