The QEA Standard and How We Make a Difference

1. Structural and systematic learning approach

We help students achieve their best by putting up a structural way of learning. We accomplish this by providing a proper lesson to help students review concepts, revisit homework in a stepwise order, and mock exams to practice for all subjects. Below is the list of our structural and systemic learning approaches:

  • The proper lesson to review the concepts
  • Provide extra worksheets that mimic test problems
  • Going over homework and application questions step by step
  • Mock exams

It is not uncommon to see many students perform below standard because they usually are given test questions that are way complex than their assigned homework. Therefore, many of these students don’t get to score as high as 80's and 90's. At QE, we provide extra worksheets that are as difficult as what students face during tests.

Homework practices play a vital role in helping students achieve success; we hold on to this belief at Queen Elizabeth. Before students go on break at the end of the session, we assign homework packages to them and randomly check at the beginning of a new session.

We use a combination of lesson/concepts + application problems + homework to help our students achieve excellence and make them fit for admission into top universities.

Most of our competitors would sit back and wait for their students to ask questions, which is an ineffective method because the struggling students don’t know what to ask. Instead, at Queen Elizabeth, we actively teach using the approaches mentioned above.

2. Focus on understanding the concepts and foundation building

We always ensure that our students have a sound understanding of concepts. We provide them with an in-depth knowledge of every topic. For instance, in Math, we make the students understand each topic from basics before proceeding to the complex tasks. The students find it easy to treat complex tasks once the basics are well rooted in them.

We also make students understand the principle behind every lesson; this is to prevent them from getting confused during tests. In most cases, students tend to memorize steps, but they get confused during tests. We help our students to avoid this by letting them have a sound understanding of every step.

3. Our tutors have a deep understanding of the curriculum as provided by the Ministry

Queen Elizabeth is a private school of over nine years with full Ministry approval. Our tutors have full access to the teaching materials and plans. They are well informed about the curriculum. As such, they have an in-depth understanding of the building blocks from one step to the other. They know the requirements and everyday challenges of students in each grade.

For example, one of the main challenges for grades 10 and 11 students is Trinomial. Proper building of this foundation prepares the students well for the more advanced Functions and calculus of grade 12. Many students struggle because of a lack of appropriate foundational structure in lower classes. At QE, we help our students lay up a good foundation upon which they can build on.

4. Our Tutors

Our tutors are not only experts in their area, they are top achiever themselves.

They don't just tutor our students, often times they serve as a role model and mentor to our students.

Queen Elizabeth tutor team is a team with a solid bond; our tutors' have an average tenure of 3 years. Most of our competitors operate as agencies or centers; their tutors are freelancers who come around and go. As such, they often deprive their students of the opportunity to get accustomed to a teaching pattern.

Our tutors are specialists in the subjects they teach. We won’t ask an English graduate to teach Math. Our tutors are well trained and experienced in their fields.

Build your Math foundations and confidence with QEA #1 rated math tutoring program

Math is cumulative. This means that each grade level serves as a building block for the next. Studnets need to understand the concept and be able to apply. The challenge is that most students tend to memorize math rather than understand, and ignore the foundational gaps, only to find out that it will come back and hurt their marks.

QEA is accredited by the Ministry of Education. We have in depth expertise on curriculum, the foundational building block to the next grade. We can help your child to overcome gaps through easy to understand lessons and step by step explanation.

Common challenges that most students encounter in math:

1. Weak foundational skills in math

To build good math foundational skills, students should start at Grade 7 or 8. Skillsets including fractions, integers and algebra are critical. Then in high school, graphing, solving equations, quadratics are important. Without strong foundational skills, a student will struggle with math unit by unit, year by year. The key is to address the foundational gap with proper lessons, accompanied with practice.

2. Memorize instead of understand

Students tend to memorize math, instead of the understand it, which is the proper way of doing it. The problem with this approach, is that when the teacher changes the question, the student will get stuck and lose a large portion of the marks. To understand math is to understand the “why” behind the concept or steps, and know when to apply what. Our lessons focus on understanding, and we teach students the concepts with step by step explanation on how to use them.

The QEA math tutoring program is one on one, private.

We focus on foundational building, re-address the gaps of the student, to help them understand and not memorize. We also provide extra practice to strengthen their understanding and skills.

Build your English foundational skills - writing, reading comprehension, and critical analysis

English is a critical subject in high school, since all university admission requires a good English grade. Achieving excellence in English demand a set of skills from the students. Most students are missing these skills: essay writing, reading comprehension, grammar and critical analysis.

QEA English tutoring program focuses on building these 3 skills: reading comprehension, essay writing and critical analysis. We aim to support our students with their school curriculum, and using this to teach them and develop these skills. In our lessons on essay writing, for instance, we teach students how to write a concise and effective thesis, how to develop an introduction to grab the reader’s interests, and how to build arguments with quotes from Shakespeare or their novels.

 

Common challenges that most students encounter in English:

1. Students lack proper sentence structures

Students nowadays are accustomed to writing short messages on their phones. The challenge is that this habit is translated to their school writing, and therefore, they lack proper grammar and sentence structure. QEA lessons will discipline the students into using proper English structure and grammar, and develop their writing skill in a step by step approach.

2. Students’ essays lack critical analysis and are penalized for marks.

Critical thinking accounts for a large portion of the student’s English grade in high school. Many students have the poor habit of stating the plot summary in their essays, instead of providing proper critical analysis. This will result in severe penalty on their grades. We teach students to go deeper into the story, and to link how the plot is connected to the themes.

The QEA English tutoring program is one on one, private.

We build the student’s skills in reading, writing and critical analysis, while working with the students through their regular school curriculum.

Science Tutoring in Edmonton

Science is an important subject in high school, pathing the way for students to enter life or engineering route to university. There are boundless opportunities in specializing in science in medicine, denistry, pharmacy, optometry, engineering and research.

Science is one of the most challenging subjects in high school. It combines theory with calculation (math), in a manner that students need to have a strong grasp in understanding, problem solving and dealing with multiple step problems to perform well on it.

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

 

Common challenges that most students face in science:

1. Weak foundational skills on science

Students begin science in grade 9 and 10, and can choose their science path in grade 11, including chemistry, biology or physics. The foundational skills they learned in grade 9 and 10 becomes applicable, and their success will depend on a solid foundaiton built in junior high school.

For example, in chemistry, if the student has difficult naming compounds and balancing chemical equations in grade 10, then they will face significant difficulty throughout chemistry 11. Science is cumulative, therefore building a good foundaiton is the important first step to excel in science.

2. Science application problems
(Chemistry, Physics, Biology)

In solving application problems, students are mostly accustomed to plugging in equations similar to math. This is a wrong approach. Science application queations composed of “situation based” questions, which requires the student to analyze deeply before applying the numbers. For these multiple steps problems, students need to visualize the problem, understand which concepts to apply, and which parameters / givens are involved, then he can correctly apply the equation and substitute the numbers. We teach this approach on our chemistry and physics programs with outstanding success on the students.

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

Study Tips for Grade 12 Advanced Functions (MHF4U) for Edmonton

The Course

This is a very important course for many students because most university programs require this course as a pre-requisite. The skills learned in the Grade 11 course are built upon in this course, including factoring, graphing, trigonometry and exponents. Students will likely have varying levels of proficiency when taking this course, as some units, such as polynomial functions, are quite simple, while others, such as trigonometry and proofs.

Some students have thus described it as a roller coaster ride of a course, with all the thrills (and challenges) that that entails.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Advanced Functions for Edmonton students

It would be a good idea, before the beginning of this course, to brush up on the foundations of mathematics, such as factoring (especially trinomial factoring), domain and range, graphing, adding rational expression, and trigonometry ratios. If you wait until the course beings, it may be difficult to keep pace with the new material which is being taught. Foundations are always important, and as with all mathematics courses, this one builds upon your past knowledge, so be sure to review.

Also, make sure to keep good, organized notes to stay on top of the course units. 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 and practice tests to hone their skills and succeed.

Study Tips for Grade 12 Vector Calculus (MCV4U) for Edmonton

The Course

This course includes two different sections, one is derivative, or rather extends from work in Advanced Functions, while the other is Vectors, which is completely new. Vector bears some resemblance to Physics in terms of problem solving.

The derivative section will branch out from the work done in Advanced Functions and will include algebra, graphing, trigonometry and logarithms.

The vector component is entirely new, involving 3D equation of lines and planes. The problem-solving aspects of vectors are similar to physics, and many students find this component of the course particularly difficult.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Vector Calculus for Edmonton students

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, which includes many word problems. If you struggle with word problems, make sure to prepare for this unit in particular. As always, make sure to keep your notes organized. Identify the different kinds of problems. This will help you to clarify the concepts in this course significantly, and also help to keep track of your progress.

When approaching vectors, the concepts are highly complex. To address this, try to layout 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 will simplify some of the more complex questions, and will also allow you to pinpoint areas in which you will require extra help.

Study Tips for Grade 12 Chemistry, University Preparation (SCH4U) for Edmonton

The Course

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.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Chemistry, University Preparation for Edmonton students

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.

Study Tips for Grade 12 Physics, University Preparation (SPH4U) for Edmonton

The Course

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.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Physics, University Preparation for Edmonton students

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.

Some of the units in Grade 12 Physics are conceptually difficult, such as electromagnetism and light. To better understand a concept, try first to put it into plain English. Imagine that you are explaining this concept to a space alien, or your grandmother. What would you say? What is an electric field? What is Voltage? If you are able to understand the concept, and are not merely memorizing equations, it will make understanding equations and problems much easier.

Grade 11

Study Tips for Grade 11 Mathematics, University Preparation (MCR3U) for Edmonton

The Course

Grade 11 Mathematics represents an important stepping stone in progressing to the 12th grade. Students at this stage are often at a crossroads, namely whether to take the Mixed level course or the Academic level course. My advice to students would be to stick with the Grade 11 Academic Math, even if it requires a bit more work or a summer upgrade. This course will open many doors to university programs ranging from engineering to business and many others. Unless a student is absolutely certain of the path they wish to take, it is probably better to stick with the more flexible option.

There are many challenging units in grade 11 Math including exponents, transformation, trigonometry graphing, and trigonometry identities (the first time you will encounter proofs).

The simpler units include Quadratics, which is mostly a review of grade 10 material, and series and sequences.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Mathematics, University Preparation for Edmonton students

Before taking this course, try to strengthen your foundational skills from grade 10. Key skills include factoring (especially trinomials), fractions (grade 8-9 level), Linear systems and quadratics with a good understanding of domain and range, x and y intercepts and asymptotes. With foundational skills down it will be easier to follow the lessons and work in this course, and less time will be spent catching up on previous material.

Many grade 11 questions involve multiple steps. Ensure you understand why you are undertaking each step from a logical perspective, and then 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.

Study Tips for Grade 11 Chemistry, University Preparation (SCH3U) for Edmonton

The Course

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.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Chemistry, University Preparation for Edmonton students

Grade 11 Chemistry involves a combination of theoretical and technical knowledge. You must be proficient in both areas to do well in the course.

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.

It is a good idea to review Nomenclature and how to Balance Equations from Grade 10 science before proceeding to Grade 11 Chemistry. These are two absolutely essential skills in the course.

Once you come to the units in the course which involve calculations, make sure you lay out all of the steps individually, or else use a flow chart, with each box indication your result for each step, such as the values for mass of a chemical, volume of a gas or the number of particles. This can eliminate confusion, and help to isolate areas of confusion.

Study Tips for Grade 11 Physics, University Preparation (SPH3U) for Edmonton

The Course

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.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Physics, University Preparation for Edmonton students

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

Grade 10

Study Tips for Grade 10 Academic Mathematics, (MPM2D) for Edmonton

The Course

Grade 10 is a large leap in difficulty from Grade 9, especially for those who scored 75% or lower in Grade 9. Many new concepts are introduced, such as quadratics and geometry.

Common challenges in Grade 10 Math include thinking problems and word problems. Students need to strengthen their foundational skills for Grade 10, especially if they have gaps in their grade 8 and 9 learning. Such gaps include integers, fractions, and linear equations. Students must work diligently in these areas in order to proceed on to grade 11 Math successfully.

Study Tip for Grade 10 Academic Mathematics for Edmonton students

It is a good idea to organize problems into types. This will help you to determine which problems give you the most difficulty, and then you will be able to focus on those ones.

Also, make sure to spend a considerable amount of time practicing beyond what has been assigned by the teacher. A grade 10 Math students should look to do about 5 hours of work a week in order to do very well on the course. Also, always avoid, if you can, last-minute studying before the test. You will be better off if you accumulate your skill and knowledge on a regular basis.

Grade 9

Study Tips for Grade 9 Academic Mathematics, (MPM1D) for Edmonton

The Course

Grade 9 Math is a significant departure from Grade 8 Math. Many students do not expect this and thus maintain a Grade 8 work ethic in high school.

The four categories of Knowledge, Application, Thinking, and Communication are now introduced, and many are not accustomed to this marking scheme.

The course is also more word problem heavy than the middle school courses, possibly causing a significant drop in marks if not dealt with quickly. Many students are discouraged by a bad test and then give up, believing they are not good enough at math to do better. The good news is that this is a myth, and good marks will come to those students who put the work in and take the course seriously.

Study Tip for Grade 9 Academic Mathematics for Edmonton students

Try to create a regular work schedule and maintain it. A student should spend roughly 4 hours a week on math homework to succeed in this course. Math requires constant practice, and thus a steady work schedule is important to achieve desired goals in this course.

Also, make sure to spend a good deal of time addressing word problems, as word problems are going to be important, not just in grade 9, but throughout high school. They cannot be avoided!
