How to get high marks in Math?
Algebra 1 Tutoring
in Palo Alto, CA near me
Common challenges for students learning Algebra 1
Students often times do not have a good foundation starting Algebra 1. If there are gaps on the foundation
from grade 8, such as integers, fractions, algebra, the student will find Algebra 1 challenging
Algebra 1 also introduce new complex concepts, especially linear equations. Students in Algebra 1
have difficulty understanding the connection between equations and graphs. For instance, what is x
and y intercept? What is a slope? How do you graph a line with a certain value of slope and how to
determine the slope from an equation? What to deal with the extreme cases?
Students need to grasp the concepts with practice in order to excel in Algebra 1.
QE approach to tutoring Algebra 1 in Palo Alto, CA
We start with the foundation review, making sure that the student understands the key
foundation components described above. The next step is our lesson based approach that starts with the
concepts. The student must understand the concepts  i.e. what is a
slope, and why does it appear in a certain way? What is the slope formula and why does it look like this
What are you getting when you " plug in " a number into an equation and determine the y value? What
does it look like on a graph?
Without understanding the concept, the student will start memorize, and he / she will stumbled on
tests when the test changes the question.
Once the student understands the concept, the next step is to go over a variety of problems, step
by step. The key is to explain the rationale behind the questions.
With good lesson and practice, you will certainly excel in Algebra 1!
Geometry Tutoring
in Palo Alto, CA near me
Common Challenges for students learning Geometry
The toughest part of geometry is to relate equations to the different geometry shapes and properties. This
is
similar to the linear systems units in Algebra 1, but the Geometry version is much more complicated. The
units
in analytical geometry is difficult in this manner, along with the units in parallel lines and perpendicular
lines, which is an extension of the toughest unit in Algebra 1.
Students having foundation gaps from Algebra 1, especially if they don't understand the linear
system units in Algebra 1, will find geometry difficult.
The trigonometry unit in geometry is very important. It serves as a foundation step to Algebra 2
and calculus. It is important to ensure that the student has a good foundation on trigonometry,
because the Algebra 2 versions is built on this and is very difficult.
QE approach to tutoring Geometry in Palo Alto, CA
The first step is to review the foundation of Algebra 1, especially linear systems, which will keep
appearing in Geometry. Next step is to provide good lessons on the geometry units, focus on understanding.
More specifically, students need to understand how the equations apply to certain shapes and properties,
what you are trying to get on each step etc.
Analyticaly geometry, the toughest unit, oftens requre many steps (a full page of solution!) to
solve a problem. Our approach is to teach the student the "plan" in plain English, rather than
drilling into each of the technical details. The student can then combine their knowledge and
execute each step of the plan. This approach helps the student to understand the "big picture" or
overview of the solution, instead of memorizing a lot of tiny steps, which can get confusing.
Trigonometry is very important in geometry, serving as a foundation for Algebra 2 and calculus. We
have seen students with weak foundation in trigonometry stumbled on the senior high school
mathematics. Understanding trigonometry with lots of practice is critical!

Algebra 2 Tutoring
in Palo Alto, CA near me
Common Challenges for students learning Algebra 2
Algebra 2 is a very difficult, where students will start learning many advanced concepts such as logarithms
and polynomials. It's difficult because each of these concepts contain many parts and they are
interrelated.
Students will need to understand the concepts and know how to apply to many different situations, as well as
knowing what equation to use.
Students with weak foundation from Algebra 1 will find this course especially difficult. These
include factoring, graphing techniques, linear systems, trigonometry. Students with these
foundation gaps will make mistake across the tests and exams. On the surface, it looks like
careless errors, but it's foundation weaknesses.
Oftentimes the first 23 steps of a problems belong to new concepts, then the remaining steps
relate to foundation knowledge, such as simplying algebra or solving an equation. Therefore
students with foundation gaps will lose marks everywhere.
QE approach to tutoring Algebra 2 in Palo Alto, CA
We start with the foundation review, making sure that the student understands the key foundation components
described above. The next step is our lesson based approach that starts with the concepts. The student must
understand the concepts. To understand the concept, it means for a student to know the "why" behind certain
steps, and what are you trying to do when you perform certain operations.
Once the student understands the concept, the next step is to go over a variety of problems, step
by step. The key is to explain the rationale behind the questions. Because the problems are
advanced
in Algebra 2, it is important for students to get exposed to a variety of problems and knowing how
they are related to the core concepts.
Once the student understand these, things will fall together, and Algebra 2 will be much easier.
With good lesson and practice, you will certainly excel in Algebra 2!
PreCalculus Tutoring
in Palo Alto, CA near me
PreCalculus is a challenging, where students will start learning many advanced concepts such as vectors and
limits. It's difficult because each of these concepts contain many parts and they are interrelated. The
concepts themselves are difficult to understand, let alone relating to each of their equations and different
types of problems!
Students with weak foundation from Algebra 2 will find this course especially difficult. These
include factoring, quadratics, rational functions and trigonometry. Students with these foundation
gaps will make mistake across the tests and exams. On the surface, it looks like careless errors,
but it's foundation weaknesses.

advanced
in Precalculus, it is important for students to get exposed to a variety of problems and knowing
how they are related to the core concepts.
Some of the units, such as vectors, will require more detailed explanation. These concepts are more
related to physics. Other units such as inverse functions and trigonometry are an extension of
Algebra 2

Calculus Tutoring
in Palo Alto, CA near me
Calculus is an important course that prepares student who is interested in engineering science, or business.
It is one of the most difficult courses for high school and building the foundation for first year
university calculus. Without a solid foundation in calculus, the student will struggle first year.
For example, a popular type of derivative is called the product rule. The basic equation is not
difficult. However, to apply that equation under different types of questions or circumstances is
hard. If the question has multiple exponents or fractions, or negative exponent, the chain rule
applied will be very different.
On a test, the teacher will not tell the student what to apply, the student will need to recognize
certain characteristics (fraction or exponents or root etc.) and know what to do with it  this
requires all the understanding of these concepts from the previous years!
The next challenge is the variety of questions coming out of a single concept.
QE approach to tutoring Calculus in Palo Alto, CA
We start with the foundation review, making sure that the student understands the key foundation components
described above. The next step is our lesson based approach that starts with the oncepts. The student must

steps, and what are you trying to do when you perform certain operations.

Once the student understands the concept, the next step is to go over a variety of problems, step by step.
The key is to explain the rationale behind the questions. Because the problems are advanced in Precalculus,
it is important for students to get exposed to a variety of problems and knowing how they are related to the
core concepts.
Since a lot of different concepts (calculus + previous years) are embedded in different types of problems,
it is important for the student to understand how to approach them based on recognizing certain
characteristics. That requires good explanation from QE tutors.
Some of the units, such as integrals, will require more detailed explanation. These concepts are even more
advanced. Other units such as limits and derivative are an extension of Algebra 2 and precalculus
Once the student understand these, things will fall together, and Calculus will be much easier.
With good lesson and practice, you will certainly excel in Calculus!

If I am doing poorly, how can I use the help from QE Math tutoring in
Palo Alto, CA?
If you aren’t performing well in the subject, chances are you have foundation gaps. The first
step is really to address your foundation gaps. That’s also one of the focus on QE Math
tutors in Palo Alto, CA. Once we discover your gaps during the tutoring session, we will reteach
you that particular component. Take an example, a lot of grade 11 and 12 students struggle
with factoring, that’s one of the common foundation gaps. We will then reteach it. Now, once
you understand how to perform it, you need to practice at least 1015 questions, so it sinks
with you.
The next step is to review the lessons after the tutoring session. The best way is to write
your own study notes. Then you need to practice homework problems. If you do all these 3
things, you will see measurable improvements from QE Math tutoring in Palo Alto, CA.

It was a pleasure and a turning points for my children
education when they joined Queen Elizabeth's Academy. What really make this Academy
different is the great attention given to students, they analyse carefully the strength
and weakness of their student, they work on clear strategy to improve students performance
and are very flexible to change strategy when needed. they worked
patiently with my son and improved his performance to excellency. It is great how
management and especially Mr. Victor follow up with us on my son progress , I received
many phone calls and emails with updates, this tight follow up and advices we received
resulted in huge difference in my son performance and his awareness to his education. I
highly recommend QA.read more
My daughter decided to get a jump start to her last year in
high school and decided to take the Gr 12 English summer course at Queen Elizabeth
Academy. She had a great experience with Victor and her teacher Justin. Based on current circumstances classes were held virtually. Content was
delivered in a professional manner, with group discussions and constant support
throughout the course. I would highly recommend Queen Elizabeth Academy.read more
At a time when school had to be done differently, Queen
Elizabeth Academy stepped up to the plate. During the initial change of school due to
Covid my son was going to a public ally funded school and the most contact he had with his
teachers was to read or watch something online and then do an assignment which he got a
grade back but no feedback on what he did right or wrong. At
Queensway academy my son has to sign on daily with his teacher and classmates ( small
class size only 8 students) and she actually teaches a class. There is plenty of time
for questions and my son gets feedback on his tests. Being at work I can’t monitor if
my son actually signs on but there is great communication from the school. One day my
son slept in and I got text and emails asking where my son was. They follow up quickly
if you have any questions or concerns. I highly recommend attending here. Great
learning happens here.read more
My daughter Megan has had the opportunity to take grade 11
math and grade 12 advanced functions at queen Elizabeth Academy. She is registered for
physics 12 in the fall. Due to the pandemic situation we have been very worried that our
child is not going to get the foundations in math and science that she needs. Thanks to Victor and his team of highly qualified teachers our concerns
have been alleviated. Megan has had the traditional in class model with QE and has just
finished up with an online platform. Both have been great and I am confident that Megan
is now prepared for university. I truly believe that the public school system of
distance learning cannot do what Victor and his team have done for my daughter. She has
been prepared for success as a direct result of professional teaching methods that
work.read more
Have had nothing but positive experience with QE for my 2
kids. We have taken both credit courses and some tutoring as necessary. Private credit
courses were mainly grade 12 English over the summer and grade 12 math courses throughout
the fall semester in the evening. I have heard quite a bit about
private credit courses offered by other schools that are not as through and almost too
easy for students to get high average. Courses at QE are well laid out and very
extensive to make sure they provide good foundations for post secondary education.
Victor is excellent at communicating with parents and students and he is also very
good at listening and acting on everyones feedback. Highly recommend QA!!read more
