Designed Learning Strategies for our courses.
Queen Elizabeth Academy’s private tutoring programs offer one-on-one, customized lessons that cover vital and basic concepts, using step-by-step explanations on homework problems.
Math and science are cumulative. Therefore, we encourage our students to build a good foundation for long term success. In our math and science tutoring classes, we teach the foundational concepts and help our students to understand and apply them, instead of merely memorizing materials. This tutoring approach is essential in building the students’ foundation.
For our science and math tutoring programs, we provide easy-to-understand lessons and we use a step-by-step explanation approach to explain every concept. During our session, our tutors pay attention to students' foundational gaps, and to re-explain the steps to clarify any misunderstanding.
To build good math foundational skills, it is ideal for the students to start at Grade 7 or 8, where they can learn essential skill sets such as fractions, integers and algebra are critical. Later on, in high school, they learn graphing, equations, and quadratics. And without these skills, students will likely struggle with math year after year. So, we address the foundational gaps with relevant lessons and practice questions.
Students tend to memorize math, instead of understanding the concepts. But the problem with memorizing is that students will get stuck and lose marks if they`re faced with different problems. Understanding math basically means to understand the “why” behind the concepts or steps and also know how and when to apply them. This is why our lessons focus on helping students to understand and apply essential concepts, using step-by-step explanations to teach them.
We focus on foundational building, re-addressing students` learning gaps, and helping them understand instead of memorizing. Additionally, we provide further practice questions to strengthen their understanding and skills.
Quite recently, lots of students have become accustomed to writing short messages on their phone - a habit that leads to poor grammar and sentence structure in school writing. QEA lessons are designed in a way that disciplines the students into using proper English structure and grammar. As a result, they develop their writing skills using our step-by-step guide.
When it comes to achieving good English grades in high school, critical thinking accounts for a significant portion of students' grades. Unfortunately, a lot of students are accustomed to just stating the plot summary in their essays, instead of providing detailed and concise critical analysis. As a result, the students' grades suffer. Thankfully, our tutors at QEA teach the students to go deeper into the story and to link the plot to other connected themes in the story.
At Queen Elizabeth Academy, we build our students’ English skills in reading, writing and critical analysis, while also working through their regular school curriculum.

Many of our students have been admitted to several high-ranking universities and some with scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $23,000.

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.
