Designed Learning Strategies for our courses.
At Queen Elizabeth Academy’s private tutoring sessions, we offer our students one-on-one, personalized lessons, covering all concepts step-by-step, especially while explaining homework problems.
In math and science, students are expected to build on the previous knowledge as they go from one grade level to another. Hence, a solid foundation is necessary for long-term success. In our math and science tutoring programs, we teach fundamental concepts and help our students to understand instead of memorizing the materials. This is an essential tutoring approach for foundation building.
We provide easy-to-understand maths and science classes, taught with a step-by-step explanation method. During each session, our tutors pay specific attention to the students' foundational gaps and re-explain the necessary steps to clarify any misunderstanding.
In order to develop sound math skills, students should start at the foundations in Grade 7 or 8, where they'll learn vital skills in fractions, algebra, and integers. In high school, they'll be taught graphing, solving equations, and quadratics. Without strong foundational skills, a student will struggle with math year after year. The best approach is to address the foundational gaps with proper lessons and practice questions.
Most students naturally shy away from studying maths, so they simply memorize things. The challenge with this approach is that they're thrown off balance when the teacher changes the question; unfortunately, they lose a large portion of their marks. To understand math, students need to understand the “why” behind the concepts and steps and apply them. This is why our lessons focus on fostering understanding of concepts with step-by-step explanations on using them.
We focus on foundational building, re-addressing foundational gaps, and helping the students understand and not memorize. We also provide extra practice to strengthen their understanding and skills.
These days, students are used to writing short messages on their phones. This style of communication, unfortunately, leads to poor writing skills, which affects them in school. The habit eventually leads to poor grammar and sentence structure. The good news is that QEA lessons are designed to discipline the students into using and building proper English structure and grammar. Therefore, we help them develop their writing skill using a step-by-step approach.
Critical thinking is another important aspect of students' English grades in high school. But many students are accustomed to just stating the plot summary in their essays instead of providing in-depth critical analysis. As a result, they suffer severe loss of marks and poor grades. At QEA, we teach our students to go deeper into the story, understand it, and link the main plot to other connected themes.
We build our students' reading, writing, and critical thinking skills, while also working with them through their regular school curriculum.
Queen Elizabeth Academy is trusted for providing top-quality education to students, which is why many of them have excelled academically. Several of our students have entered into great universities with scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $23,000. Queen Elizabeth Academy Alumni are known for having strong foundations, which help them continue successfully in universities. Our students' alumni had entered high-quality medical schools, others are pursuing their MSc. and Ph.D., while others have been employed by top Bay St. companies and global firms.
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.
