Designed Learning Strategies for our courses.
We offer a one-on-one, personalized tutoring program at Queen Elizabeth Academy, and our lessons cover all essential concepts with step-by-step explanations on homework problems.
Seeing that math and science are cumulative, it becomes imperative for students to develop their skills in these areas to ensure long-term success. In Queen Elizabeth Academy's math and science tutoring sessions, we teach foundational concepts and help our students to understand instead of memorizing the course materials. This is the best tutoring approach when building students' math foundations.
In QEA science and math tutoring programs, we use a step-by-step explanation technique in providing easy-to-understand lessons. During our tutoring sessions, our tutors pay attention to the students’ foundational gaps and re-explain wherever they need further clarification.
To build solid math foundational skills, students ought to start at Grade 7 or 8, so they can learn foundational skills, such as fractions, integers, and algebra. When they get into high school, they`ll learn graphing, solving equations. These skills are critically important because, without them, the students will struggle with math from one grade level to another. So the best approach is to use practice questions to develop these skills while addressing foundational gaps.
Students are generally accustomed to memorizing math instead of understanding it, which is the proper way of learning math. But the challenge with this approach is that the students are not grounded in the fundamental concepts, so they struggle when presented with different problems. Hence, to understand math, students must learn and know the “why” behind the concepts and steps and also be able to apply them. To address this, our lessons at Queen Elizabeth Academy focus on understanding, so we teach our students the concepts following a step-by-step explanation pattern.
Our tutors focus on foundational building while re-addressing the student's gaps and helping them understand instead of memorizing. With additional practice problems, they soon master the skills.
Nowadays, students are accustomed to texting on their phones. This habit somehow gets translated into their school writing and accounts for a significant reason why students lack proper grammar and sentence structure in writing. However, QEA lessons compel the students to use appropriate English structure and grammar in writing.
Critical thinking also accounts for a significant portion of students’ English grades in high school. During critical analysis, many students have the poor habit of merely stating the plot summary in their essays. Whereas they`re supposed to provide more detailed critical analysis, a common mistake which results in loss of marks. So we teach students to go deeper into the story, linking the central theme to the rest of the story.
We build our students’ skills in reading, writing, and critical analysis while working with them through their regular school curriculum.
At Queen Elizabeth Academy, we`re known for providing top-quality education to our students. This is why they excel academically. Many of our students were accepted into top universities with scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $23,000. Queen Elizabeth Academy strives to help students build strong foundations to pursue their paths in various universities with ease. Many of our past students have entered top medical schools, others pursue their MScs and PhDs, and several were employed by top-ranking Bay St. firms and other global companies.
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.
