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.

Grade 12 Advanced Functions and Calculus is very challenging, and it’s imperative to build a good foundation in grade 10 and 11, to prepare for it

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

Richmond Hill. Achieving excellence in English demands a set of skills from the students. Most students are missing these skills: essay writing, reading comprehension, grammar and critical analysis.

If you are searching for a private english tutor in Richmond Hill, you came to the right place. 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 use 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. Get in touch with our english writing tutor in Richmond Hill today by contacting us now.


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.

English 11 and 12 are especially challenging. Students are encouraged to build a good foundation in essay writing and critical thinking to perform well in these courses

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.

High School and Computer Science tutor in Richmond Hill

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

Grade 12

The Course

Many students will not be able to do without this course as it essential for numerous university programs. Students typically build on the skills they learned in the preceding grades. Some of the skills to be learned in this course include factoring, graphing, trigonometry, and exponents. It is expected that students will have varying levels of proficiency and understanding when during this course. This is because some units like polynomial functions are more straightforward than others, such as trigonometric functions and proofs.

Due to the difficulty that students often face when taking this course, some of them have described it as a roller coaster ride of a course.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Advanced Functions for Mississauga, Oakville and Richmond Hill students

It will be wise to go through math foundation before commencing this course. Critical areas include factoring (especially trinomial factoring), domain and range, graphing, combining rational expressions, and trigonometry ratios. If, on the other hand, you decide to brush up when the course begins, you may have a hard time staying abreast of the new material being taught. Mathematics courses usually build upon your previous knowledge, so be sure to review them.

Also, ensure to keep good, organized notes to enable you to keep a decent place as each course unit progresses. Also, be brave enough to practice new problems on your own and endeavor to go beyond those assigned in the homework. It will be a great boost to the mastering of the wide variety of concepts and questions in Advanced Functions. Ultimately, the more you expose yourself to such problems, the better prepared you will be. In light of this, the Queen Elizabeth Academy tutoring program provides all students with extra worksheets and practice tests to hone their skills for success.

The Course

There are two different aspects of this course; one of which is a derivative of Advanced Functions, the other; vector is a totally new concept. Vectors are essentially similar to Physics when it comes to problem-solving.

The derivative section takes root in work done in Advanced Functions and will typically include algebra, graphing, trigonometry, and logarithms.

The vector aspect of the course includes 3D equations of lines and planes. There is much similarity between vector problem-solving and physics; as such many students often find this aspect of the course to be more difficult than the first.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Vector Calculus for Mississauga, Oakville and Richmond Hill students

Success in Vector Calculus needs proficiency in exponents, factoring, combining rational expressions such as fractions with algebra, and solving equations.

You want to pay special attention to the Optimization Unit, which usually includes many word problems. However, if you have trouble dealing with word problems, be sure to prepare for this unit in particular. Do not forget to keep your notes organized while you identify the different kinds of problems. This will significantly help you to clarify the concepts in the course, and to keep track of your progress.

The concepts of vectors are very complex. So, when approaching vector problems, be sure to layout and write down all of the steps clearly. Also, write down why such steps are necessary. Know what variable you are trying to achieve with every step. This approach will undoubtedly simplify even more complicated questions and allow you to easily identify areas where you need additional help.

The Course

Students in Ontario high schools often find Grade 12 Chemistry and Physics to be very challenging. As with typical chemistry problems, many of the questions are based on possible outcomes since Chemistry deals with so many diverse elements (e.g., what is the product of reacting chemical X with Y).

Many students are not familiar with this type of problem-solving strategy, so they prefer step-based or formulaic-based problems. Science students cannot do without this in the university, as such they need to learn the skills.

The complexity of the concepts in Grade 12 Chemistry is high and may sometimes be frustrating. They include enthalpy, orbitals, equilibrium, and organic nomenclature, which most chemistry students usually find tasking.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Chemistry, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Richmond Hill students

It is vital to avoid getting lost in details when studying chemistry. There's always a ‘big picture’ concept in any given unit, so keep an eye out for that. To help you visualize these concepts, it's a good idea to organize your work into a flow chart. This strategy displays the essential concepts and how they're connected one to another. As a result, you'll be able to handle tests much better.

Always try to understand the “why” behind every concept you encounter or the reason a concept is essential instead of merely memorizing things. For example, the boiling point of an organic compound reflects the strength of the intermolecular force of attraction holding its molecules together. Adaptation to situational problems will be well aided by a sound understanding of these concepts.

The Course

For anyone hoping to pursue engineering in the university, physics is an essential course for such person. As expected, grade 12 Physics builds on your knowledge of grade 11 Physics, so if a student was sound in the preceding grade level, they will likely, with hard work, of course, succeed in Grade 12 Physics.

The Grade 12 Physics University Preparation Course begins with a review of Kinematics (motion) and Dynamics (forces). This helps to ensure that students have a solid foundation. Here, electromagnetism and Light are often the most challenging units.

In Grade 12 Physics, students are expected to excel at problem-solving techniques, particularly in manipulating equations to extract unknown variables and answers.

In this course, the workload is quite heavy and requires lots of practice to comprehend them fully. Therefore, students will need to dedicate a considerable amount of time to score above 85 percent. However, physics is an exciting course, and with the right mindset, it can be very rewarding.

Study Tip for Grade 12 Physics, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Richmond Hill students

Physics is a course that requires much practice, to excel in this course, it is expected that any student should spend not less than 6 hours a week to go through new problems in the course.

In Grade 12 physics, some of the units like electromagnetism and light are conceptually difficult. The ability to express each concept in plain English goes a long way in aiding understanding. For instance, imagine you are explaining the concept of light to a space alien or your grandmother. How would you describe it? What is an electric field? What is Voltage? If you can comprehend and internalize the concepts, instead of merely memorizing questions, problem-solving will definitely be a lot easier and more fun too.

Grade 11

The Course

A solid understanding of Grade 11 Mathematics is a prerequisite to Grade 12 Mathematics. Although, what we see is that students at this stage are often faced with the difficult choice of choosing between the Mixed level course and the Academic level course. From experience, we advise students to stick with the Grade 11 Academic Math, as it is a more flexible option. However, the challenge with most students is that the course requires a bit more work. But it also creates multiple opportunities for university programs to pick from, typically ranging from engineering to business courses. So, unless a student is absolutely sure of the path, he/she wishes to take after high school, they should stick with a flexible option.

Grade 11 Math has several difficult units, including exponents, transformation, trigonometry graphing, and trigonometry identities. This will also be the first encounter with proofs. The simpler units include Quadratics, series, and sequences, which are mostly a review of grade 10 topics.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Mathematics, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Richmond Hill students

It is necessary to build strong foundational skills in grade 10 in order to do well in this course. Factoring (especially trinomials), fractions (grade 8-9 level), Linear systems, and quadratics are the critical skills at this stage. Additionally, students will need a good understanding of domain and range, x and y intercepts, and asymptotes to excel in this course. It is always easier to keep pace with all lessons and course work in this course once the student has mastered the foundational skills.

It is worth noting that Grade 11 questions involve multiple steps. To ensure an easy flow, you must understand the logic and concept behind each step you take, and then pinpoint why you`re taking those steps. In other words, “what am I trying to solve?” Work through the steps again after you have done this. This is essentially how you demystify mathematical problems.

The Course

Theoretical and technical knowledge is essential for chemistry students in Grade 11. And they must be grounded in both areas to do well 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. Nevertheless, chemistry is not really challenging in Grade 11. Besides, it's a good way to see if chemistry or sciences will be a great choice for you in the university.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Chemistry, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Richmond Hill students

You face both theoretical and technical knowledge in Grade 11 chemistry. 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 approach makes problem-solving much easier.

The Course

Grade 11 Physics requires using numerous formulas that is expected that every student should have known before getting to that level. Most of the concepts will be very new for many students. In most cases, problem-solving does not follow concrete steps, as in math. So, students will need to know all the formulas, as well as how to manipulate different equations to achieve their desired result.

Physics questions are traditionally full of word problems, and that's another area of challenge to most students, because they'll need to understand the questions, interpret them, then extract the given variables and variations. With time, this can easily be mastered.

Grade 11 physics is a pre-requisite for Grade 12 Physics and an important course for students who wish to pursue engineering or science in university.

Study Tip for Grade 11 Physics, University Preparation for Mississauga, Oakville and Richmond Hill students

It is better to understand the reason behind every step in Grade 11 instead of simply memorizing them. Be sure to visualize the situation so you can identify given variables and variations in each problem. Additionally, you want to be sure you`re applying the equations rightly, instead of blindly following steps or processes.

The complexity of physics is also seen in the use of several equations to solve a single problem. The trick is to identify what you have been given, note their places in the relevant equations, and identify the variables you weren't given in the question. Finally, use this equation or in combination with other equations to find the unknown.

Grade 10

The Course

Grade 10 exposes you to a higher level of difficulty compared to what you were facing in Grade 9. And this is especially true for students who scored 75% or lower in Grade 9. Grade 10 presents many new concepts, such as quadratics and geometry.

Two of the most common challenges in Grade 10 math include critical thinking and word problems. Therefore, students need to strengthen their foundational skills ahead of Grade 10, especially if they already have gaps in grades 8 and 9. Integers, fractions, and linear equations are the likely areas where these gaps exist. Building strong foundations in these areas will help the students learn grade 11 math with ease.

Study Tip for Grade 10 Academic Mathematics for Mississauga, Oakville and Richmond Hill students

Organization of problems into different types helps a great deal in learning Grade 10 Math. This will help you identify those questions that give you tough times, so that you will be able to focus on them.

Setting out time for personal studies out of the time assigned by the teacher is very essential. Students studying math must be ready to commit up to 5 hours of work every week if they must excel in the course. Doing these will help you avoid last-minute studying before any test or exam. Essentially, accumulating your skills and knowledge regularly will help you stay on track.

Grade 9

The Course

The significant difference between Grade 8 and Grade 9 Math often give many students some hard time before getting balance.

Students are introduced to the four essential categories: Knowledge, Application, Thinking, and Communication. Quite noticeably, many of them are usually not accustomed to this marking scheme.

By and large, grade 9 math is more of a word problem than other middle school courses. Consequently, the students will need to develop strong skills here, and quickly too, if they must do well. Many would often give up at this level because they do conclude that they can’t do well in Mathematics. Whereas everyone who puts in the necessary work will do excellently well in math.
