How can our Math tutor in Richmond help you?
Math is a challening subject. It is cummulative in a sense that, if you miss the foundation or have gaps, the next year you will run into the same problem, with tougher concepts and problems. So building foundation is the first step. In addition, many students resort to memorizing equations, or steps, hoping the same problems will appear on tests. The teachers of course will change the questions and students get stuck.
Memorizing steps and equations doesn't work in math. You need to start with the foundation and understanding, then learn how to apply in various scenarios, and why the steps perform the way it does. The next step is to go through a variety of application problems and learn important problem solving skills. With good explanation and a solid understanding, and practice a variety of problems (which we provide as a package), you will do much better and enjoy math.
All QEA math tutoring in Richmond is one on one private. We teach the full lesson and review what you have learnt during that week. In this way, you won't miss anything.

 How is our math tutoring lessons run?
Private 1 on 1, Teaching based Math tutoring  that focuses on understanding, not memorizing
For each session in Math Tutoring Richmond, you will get:
 A full lesson on the concepts, review what you learn during the week. e.g. What is domain and range? What are the types of problems? What are the steps? (example from Math 10)
 Step by step explanation of major application / thinking problems. Math students mostly stumbled upon application / thinking problems. This part is very difficult, as it requires deep understanding of the concepts and good explanation. Your teacher will change the questions all the time and to solve them, you need to understand and apply.
 Good notes from our lesson board. As we teach the materials we write everything down  explanations, solutions etc. These are valuable notes you can keep and use for reviewing for future math courses.

How to get high marks in Math 11 (MCR3U)?
Common challenges for math 11
Grade 11 Math is a major stepping stone into more advanced math in the 12th grade. From experience, we`ve seen that lots of students at this stage are often at a crossroads. Many of them do not know whether to choose the Mixed level math course or the Academic level math course. But we usually advise them to go for the Academic level math, as it gives them options to choose from a more diverse range of university courses. The challenge is that they'll have to do more work. So unless they are certain of the pathe they want to take, we encourage them to go for the Advanced level math course.
There are several challenging units in grade 11 Math, such as exponents, transformation, trigonometry graphing, and trigonometry identities. In fact, it is at this level that they get introduced to proofs. The simpler units include quadratics, series, and sequences.
2 tips to score higher marks on math 11 MCR3U
Before taking this math course, try to strengthen your math foundational skills from grade 10. Key math skills include factoring (especially trinomials), fractions (grade 89 level), Linear systems and quadratics with a good understanding of domain and range, x and y intercepts and asymptotes. With math foundational skills down it will be easier to follow the lessons and work in this math course, and less time will be spent catching up on previous material.
Many grade 11 math questions involve multiple steps. Ensure you understand why you are undertaking each step from a logical or math perspective, and the pinpoint the goal of the steps, that is to say as ‘what am I trying to solve?’ Work through the steps after you have done this. By breaking the problems into steps, the questions will seem less overwhelming.

How to get high marks in Advanced Functions (MHF4U)?
Common challenges for advanced functions
In Advanced Functions, students learn units like factoring, graphing, trigonometry, and exponents. Most university programs require this course as a prerequisite, hence they`re very important. Typically, students will build upon the skills they learned in the Grade 11 course. At this point, things can get even tougher for an average student. Some units, such as polynomial functions, are quite simple, while others, such as trigonometry and proofs are on the hard side. For this reason, some students have described Advanced Functions as a rollercoaster ride of a course, considering all the thrills and challenges it entails.
2 tips to score higher marks on advanced functions MHF4U
It would be a good idea, before the beginning of Advanced Functions, to brush up on the foundations skills of math, such as factoring (especially trinomial factoring), domain and range, graphing, adding rational expression, and trigonometry ratios. If you wait until the course begins, it may be difficult to keep pace with the new material in Advanced Functions. Foundations are always important, and as with all mathematics course, this one builds upon your past knowledge, so be sure to review before starting Advanced Functions!
Also, make sure to keep good, organized notes to stay on top of the course units in Advanced Functions. Do not be afraid to practice problems beyond those assigned in the homework, as Advanced Functions is known for containing a very wide variety of questions and problems, and therefore the more you expose yourself to such problems, the better prepared you will be. Because of this, the Queen Elizabeth Academy provides all of our students with extra worksheets on Advanced Functions and practice tests to hone their skills and succeed.

How to get high marks in Calculus and Vectors 12 (MCV4U)?
Common challenges for Calculus and Vectors 12
In Calculus, there are two different sections  derivative (extends from work in Advanced Functions) and Vectors Calculus, which is completely unrelated to the first. Vector Calculus is similar to Physics in terms of problemsolving. The Calculus derivative section takes root in and branches out from Advanced Functions. It includes units like algebra, graphing, trigonometry, and logarithms. The vector component, on the other hand, is entirely new, and involves 3D equations of lines and planes. The problemsolving aspects of Vector Calculus are also similar to physics. Generally, many students find Advanced Functions difficult.
2 tips to score higher marks on Calculus and Vectors 12 MCV4U
In order to succeed in Vector Calculus, make sure you are proficient in exponents, factoring, combining rational expressions such as fractions with algebra, and solving equations.
Make sure to pay special attention to the Optimization Unit in Calculus, which includes many word problems. If you struggle with word problems, make sure to prepare for this Calculus unit in particular. As always, make sure to keep your notes organized. Identify the different kinds of Calculus problems. This will help you to clarify the Calculus concepts in this course significantly, and also help to keep track of your progress.
When approaching vectors in Calculus, the concepts are highly complex. To address this, try to lay out and write down all of the steps clearly, and write down why you are taking such steps as well. What variable are you attempting to achieve at every step? This approach to tackle Calculus will simplify some of the more complex questions, and will also allow you to pinpoint areas in which you will require extra help.

Queen Elizabeth Academy  Private Credit Courses
I credit QEA for my entry into Western Engineering! Tutors/Teachers actually teach and care about ensuring students fully grasp the learning, their online group learning format far exceeds that in the public school system, numerous additional resources were available to set me up for success, and the school is very well run and organized. Thank you QEA!read more
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 QEA.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 QEA 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 QEA 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 QEA 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 QEA!!read more
My son took a summer class from Queens Elizabeth Academy to improve his ability to do math. During this month, I can see a huge improvement because his mindset of learning and practicing his math skills are incredible. Huge thank you to Queens Elizabeth Academy for helping my son and helping his learning abilities.
My brother has enjoyed his tutoring immensely, and the tutors were kind and attentive throughout the quick paced overall tutoring period. Would definitely recommend QEA to anyone looking for summer tutoring.
