Chemistry Tutoring in Mississauga and Oakville

Chemistry is a challenging subject. Many students resort to memorizing formulas and hoping to plug in a number to receive the answer - and do well on tests. Oftentimes the teacher will change the question - especially on application problems, where the student will get stuck, result in poor grades.

Get help from our chemistry tutoring in Mississauga and Oakville

Memorizing steps and equations doesn’t work in chemistry. You need to start with the foundation (such as naming compounds and balancing equations). The next step is to understand the concept and know how to apply to specific problems. Then the next step is to go through a variety of application problems and learn important problem-solving skills. These are all situation-based questions that you will encounter on your chemistry tests and exams.

Physics Tutoring in Mississauga and Oakville

Physics is a challenging subject for a lot of students. The key challenge is that physics is problem solving based. Students are accustomed to math, where they will have a formula and “plug-in” the numbers to derive the answer. For physics, you need to know which formula to use in the first place and how to change the formula according to the situation.

Get help from our physics tutoring in Mississauga and Oakville

Memorizing steps and equations doesn’t work in physics. All questions in physics are application based, they are word problems. This means that your teacher can change the question slightly and your entire solution - the equation you use, the givens, the approach, will be all different. Understanding the concepts and apply them, instead of memorizing equations, is the key to doing well in physics.

QEA Approach to Chemistry and Physics tutoring

 - How is our tutoring session run?

Private 1 on 1, Lesson based tutoring - that focuses on understanding, not memorizing

Chemistry and physics tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

For each Chemistry and Physics tutoring session, you will get:

  • A full lesson on the concept, review what you learn during the week. e.g. What is stoichiometry? What is electric field?
  • Step by Step explanation of major application / thinking problems. Chemistry and physics 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 it’s all situation based.
  • Good notes from our lesson board (screenshot).
    As we teach the materials we write everything down - explanations, solutions etc. You are free to screenshot and keep these notes. These are valuable notes you can keep and use for reviewing and future chemistry courses.
  • Weekly homework package focus on application thinking problems. Practicing questions merely from your school homework or textbook is not good enough. You need practice to excel on a variety of application problems. We provide weekly homework focusing on this.

Grade 9 and 10 Science Tutor Mississauga and Oakville

Science is an important subject throughout high school, especially for students who desires to pursue the science route in university and in their future career.  There are boundless opportunities in science:  medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, engineering and bio-research.

And yet many high school students face challenges in science.  This discourages them from pursuing the exciting path of science, limiting their career choice in university.

Science is a combination of math, analytical skill, memorizing skills, understanding and applying concepts. 

 

Common challenges that most students face in science:

Chemistry and Physics tutoring in Mississauga and Oakville

1. Weak foundational skills on science

Students begin with their science courses in grade 9 and 10.  Once they proceed into grade 11 chemistry, biology or physics, the foundational skill they learn in grade 9 and 10 become critical.  For example in chemistry, if the student is not proficient in compound naming or balancing chemical equations, then they will run into difficulty throughout the course.  Science is cumulative, therefore building a good foundation is the important first step towards success.

2. Science application questions.

Students are mostly accustomed to plugging in equations in math and deriving an answer.  In science however, there are application questions, which are “situational” based questions.  These science application questions, require the students to combine multiple concepts to derive the solution.  In short, they have to first know what science “tools” to use.

3. Students tend to memorize science concepts rather than understand them.

In science, many students underestimate how important it is to gain an in depth understanding of science concepts.  Memorizing science concepts may work for a time, but will not prove as helpful later on.

When a student encounter application question, where he or she is required to “apply” a concept into a different situation, memorizing simply won’t work. Students should seek to understand science concepts, rather than memorizing them. Understanding a science concept means knowing the “why” or “how” behind the fact, behind the equation or formula.

QEA science tutoring program is one on one, private tutoring. We are to build the student’s understanding of science concepts, their foundation, as well as building their skills over our coaching and the extra practice we provide.

Biology Tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

Biology involves understanding different parts of a biological system, how these systems function, and how they relate to the entire system.  The challenge that most students face in biology is understanding and remembering all of the minute details, and how each of the concepts connect to each other.  At QEA, our biology tutors are experts who have experience in explaining the complex concepts and biological systems in easy-to-understand language.  We also walk our students through the application questions, an area where most students lose marks on their biology tests.

 

Tips to study biology
QEA BIOLOGY STUDY TIP #1:

from our math tutor Ottawa

When it comes to biological systems like cells, digestive systems, and genetics, you should try to reduce the complexity of the concepts by sketching diagrams and pinpointing how each part functions.

QEA BIOLOGY STUDY TIP #2:

from our math tutor Ottawa

Try to explain the complex concepts in plain English.  This will test whether you fully understand the biological concepts or not.  As well, try writing down all of the details of a concept on blank pieces of paper.  Only then will you know whether you fully remember all of the details or not.  Remember - every single detail in biology counts for marks!

Grade 11 Chemistry, University Preparation (SCH3U)

Grade 11 Chemistry involves a combination of theoretical and technical knowledge. You must be proficient in both areas to do well in the course. The majority of grade 11 Chemistry involves a great deal of calculations, and therefore a solid background in Math will make this course much easier. Grade 11 Chemistry is not particularly difficult, and it is a good way to explore the possibility of pursuing chemistry, or science more generally, in the future.

Grade 11 Physics, University Preparation (SPH3U)

Grade 11 Physics can be a very challenging course as the material along with the strategies for problem solving will be very new for many students. Rather than following concrete steps, as in Math, students will need to know which equations to use beforehand, and will need to know how to manipulate different equations to achieve their desired result.

Physics also involves many word problems which can pose another challenge, however the good news is that you will slowly gain proficiency in extracting givens and variables.

This course is important for those who wish to pursue engineering or science in university, and is a prerequisite for Grade 12 Physics.

Chemistry and Physics tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

It is important not to simply memorize the equations. It is far better to understand the reasoning behind such equations. Try to visualize the situation and identify variables and given in each different problem. Make sure you are tailoring your use of equations to the question at hand, and not just blindly following steps or processes.

In many cases you have to use multiple equations and combine them in different stages. For each equation, tick the variables that you have a number to insert and circle the ones that don’t. Then try to use another equation to find the circled unknown. This tip can guide you through the confusion

Chemistry and Physics tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

Grade 12 Chemistry, University Preparation (SCH4U)

Grade 12 Chemistry is one of the most challenging courses in Ontario high schools, along with Physics. Building upon the knowledge acquired in Grade 11 Chemistry, many of the questions are based upon possible situations since Chemistry deals with so many diverse elements (ie. The energy produced from chemical X and Y’s reaction).

Many students are unused to this kind of problem-solving strategy, preferring step-based, or formulaic ‘plug-in’ problems. However, if you are pursuing science in university, this kind of problem-solving will have to be learned.

The concepts within Grade 12 Chemistry are quitter complex, including enthalpy, orbitals, equilibrium and organic nomenclature, which is a particular challenge for many students.

Chemistry and Physics tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

An important tip to remember when studying chemistry is not to become lost in details. Always keep an eye on the ‘big picture’ concepts in any given unit. A good way to visualize these concepts is to organize them into a flow chart. This will allow you to see how concepts are related to one another, and will help with tests significantly.

Always try to understand the “why” behind a concept, or rather ‘why’ a concept is important beyond mere memorization. For example, the boiling point of an organic compound can indicate the intermolecular force that is the force of attraction between molecules. Understanding these concepts will allow you to adapt to situational problems in chemistry.

Chemistry and Physics tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

Grade 12 Physics, University Preparation (SPH4U)

Physics is often taken for those seeking to pursue engineering in university. Grade 12 Physics is an extension of grade 11 Physics, and if a student has done well in the previous grade, it is likely they will, with hard work of course, succeed in Grade 12 Physics.

This course begins with a review of Kinematics (motion) and Dynamics (forces), which will provide a strong start. Electromagnetism and Light are often the most challenging units.

In Grade 12 Physics there will be the expectation to excel at problem-solving techniques, especially in the manipulation of equations to extract unknowns and answers.

The workload in this course is quite heavy, requiring a considerable dedication of time in order to achieve above 85 percent, however with the right mindset, this course will be very rewarding.

Chemistry and Physics tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

Physics will require a great deal of practice, and it is advisable to dedicate around 6 hours a week to work through new problems if you desire to achieve above 85% 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.

Tips to succeed in SCH3U Chemistry 11

Сhemistry tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

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.

Tips to succeed in SPH4U Physics 12

Physics tutoring Mississauga and Oakville

The key factor for student to succeed in SPH4U Physics 12, is to master problem solving techniques. Questions in physics are situation based, so it is not straight forward as in plugging in numbers to an equation to solve a problem, which a lot of students mistakenly expect. The student must learn how to derive and modify equations in SPH4U Physics problems, to isolate the unknown variables and list out all the givens, and start from there. One key tip is to draw diagrams so one can visualize the problems, then identify the variables and parameters in that question. We teach these important problem solving techniques in our SPH4U Physics 12 course.

The second factor is to understand the concept. Many students rely on memorizing definition without have a good understand of the concept. For example, what is voltage? Students will memorize a textbook definition without knowing what voltage really is. To master SPH4U Physics 12 course, the student must be able to explain the concept (such as voltage) in their own words. Once the student understand the concept, the next step is to relate that concept to the equation. This means that the student must understand what each parameter mean in the equation, and how they would change when the situation changes. Why is it happening like that? Going deeper into this will take effort and time, but the student will gain the understand and being able to apply them in problem solving situations. Our course in SPH4U Physics 12 provide in depth lesson, including step by step explanation of the key concepts and their application. In this way, it is easier for students to digest the materials.

The third factor is practice. In SPH4U Physics 12, it is critical to practice a variety of questions and get familiarize with them. This will ensure the student to perform well on tests and maximize the test results. In our SPH4U Physics 12 course, we provide a variety of worksheets for our students to practice.

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.
