Queen Elizabeth Academy is known for providing top-quality education to students in Saskatoon. We aim to help our students build strong foundations instead of using quick fixes, thereby nurturing them for long-term success. For more than 9 years, we worked with thousands of students in Saskatoon and other cities, helping many of them gain admission into top universities: Waterloo, Queen’s, Western, Laurier, and McGill, with scholarships from $2,000 to $23,000.
Lots of graduates from our academy have entered medical schools, started their MSc and Ph.D., or gained employment with global firms such as KPMG and Fidelity Investments.

QEA's private tutoring programs offer one-on-one, custom-fitted tutoring to each student so that we cover essential concepts using a step-by-step explanation on homework problems.
Math and science are cumulative. This means that foundational building is a must if students are to excel long-term. In our math and science tutoring, we teach foundational concepts. We help our students to understand rather than memorize the course materials. This is basically how we build our students’ foundation.
During our science and math tutoring programs, we provide students with easy-to-understand, step-by-step explanations. Tutors pay specific attention to students' foundational gaps and re-explain unclear steps to clarify any misunderstanding.
To become really grounded in maths, students ought to start at Grade 7 or 8, where they'll be taught critical skills, including fractions, integers. This is followed by graphing, solving equations, and quadratics in high school. Without strong skills in these areas, students will likely struggle with math unit by unit. With this in mind, we aim to address all foundational gaps with proper lessons accompanied by sufficient practice.
Students often memorize math instead of understanding it. This approach causes them to get stuck when the teacher changes the questions, inevitably leading to losing a large portion of their marks. Basically, understanding math means to understand the “why” behind every concept and step, and then know when to apply what. Our lessons at QEA focus on building students' understanding of essential concepts with step-by-step explanations on their applications.
We build foundational skills, re-address students' learning gaps, and help them understand instead of memorizing; and with extra practice, we equally help them strengthen their understanding and skills.
High school students often communicate using short messages on their phones. The challenge with this is that it becomes a habit that's translated to their school writing, leading to a lack of proper grammar and sentence structure. The good thing is that our lessons at QEA are designed to discipline the students into using formal sentence structure and grammar during writing; hence they develop their writing skills in a step-by-step manner.
Critical thinking accounts for a significant portion of students' English grades in high school. Many students have the poor habit of stating the plot summary in their essays instead of writing comprehensive critical analysis. Unfortunately, their grades suffer from this. We teach students to go deeper into the story, creatively connecting the plot to the themes.
We build our students’ skills in reading, writing, and critical analysis, as we support them through their standard school curriculum.
Queen Elizabeth Academy has a strong culture of providing the best education there is to our students; this obviously explains why our students are high-flyers. Many of them have been admitted to top universities with scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $23,000. Past students of QEA have built strong foundations, which has helped them to pursue their path in universities. Our alumni have been to top medical schools, excelled in Masters and Ph.D. studies, and some were 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.
