IB Tuition By IB Examiners

“Success is a standard that raises itself to no one. You raise yourself to its level.” – Quintessential

QE is a leading provider of IB tuition and enrichment programmes for pre-tertiary students, specialising in the IB curricula. We work with industry’s best- IB Examiners, IB45 graduates, and beyond, to provide a definitive education. In 2019, all our students scored 6’s and 7’s in the IB exams. More than a source of tutorial services, QE encompasses a highly regarded brand of education designed to promote academic success and character development. 

As Singapore starts its compulsory home-based learning, online tutoring has become the default choice for many. We believe that teaching an online class is vastly different from conducting a physical one, it requires a diverse approach and targeted teaching strategies to optimise learning outcomes.

It is important to use evidence-based online teaching tools such as scenario branching, self-paced reflective learning, video-driven cooperative learning, feedback-driven practices, and a supportive offline physical community. Since 2014, QE has been conducting online tuition for IB students from various cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, and more.

With schools turning to e-learning, online tutoring has become increasingly popular. We believe that teaching an online class is vastly different from conducting a physical one, it requires a diverse approach and targeted strategies to optimise learning outcomes.

It is important to use evidence-based teaching tools such as self-paced reflective learning, video-aids, feedback-driven practices, and a supportive offline community.

E3 TEACHING MODEL

Question exposure is key to effective learning. Unlike typical classes that begin with textbook content, QE commences with exam question analysis to systematically address learning priorities, deconstruct key question types, and introduce new content.

Next, the class learns textbook content by solving key exam questions. Such ‘learning from doing’ enhances problem solving skills and conceptual understanding for productive learning. Our insider knowledge ensures a highly advanced curriculum with optimal question exposure and hands on learning for comprehensive syllabus coverage.

Practice, practice, practice. E3 concludes with timed trials and topical drills for targeted revision and advanced application skills. QE’s industry leading question banks are intelligently designed to address all question types, consider the learning style of each student, and maximise knowledge retention. More importantly, we emphasise post practice reviews with respective tutors to leave no questions unanswered.

PREMIUM TUTORS

Junior: They graduated from top IB schools with stellar grades (IB 43+), many of whom are ex QE tutees who have been cherry picked to join our teaching team. Having first hand experience in both the IB and QE courses, they offer invaluable support to students for effective learning and continue to share a proven formula for success.

Senior: Graduates, current, and ex school teachers with minimum 5 years experience and bachelors’ degree with top honours. All QE tutors go through a stringent 3 stage selection. First, screening of credentials for top tutors with proven teaching record at established schools (Mean IB score > 6.5). Next, a personal interview to ensure these candidates are likeable and effective communicators who can lead and inspire. Finally, a session where prospective tutors deliver a lesson to our interviewers. QE works with only the best in the industry.

Examiners: IB examiners who have been teaching their entire careers and consistently rank top among their colleagues. They have experience marking IB papers and know exactly what examiners are looking out for. Students who need pinpoint help for exam skills, answering techniques, and focused drills, often benefit the most. Rest assured, your children will thrive under their mentorship.

Having economic tuition with Sean helped to better understand the concepts in textbook. Sean was always very patient and helpful, whenever I had questions, he always taught me many useful skills on doing economic paper. After every exam, Sean will go through my mistake and summarise the relevant points for me to take note of. During the revision period, Sean helped me to practice many essays which helped me to improve my writing skills. With the help of tuition and practice, I was able to get grade 7 for my finals. STUDENTS' REVIEW "My intensive revision paid off!" Dou Haiyi Hwa Chong International School After repeatedly failing Chemistry, I decided to join Quintessential. With only 5 months left to the IB examinations, Michael managed to guide me and help me achieve a grade 7 in Chemistry. Micheal dissected questions and helped to explain everything in detail. He helped identify my problems at the root and taught me how to overcome it which is why I went from getting a grade 3 to a grade 7 in just a mere 5 months. Thank You! Naveen Lakshmanan Saint Joseph's Institution, IB:44 STUDENTS' REVIEW "Grade 3 to Grade 7 in 5 months!" STUDENTS' REVIEW "Able to achieve a grade 7 for my finals!" Going for economics tuition helped me revise everything that I learnt in school, which was very important for me as I was struggling to find time to do so. Sean was also very kind and understanding, answering any questions I had and taking the time to review my schoolwork. I was also able to receive more resources to study as Sean provided very concise notes. The papers we went through very consistently further helped me understand answers I should be providing for my exams. As a result of my tuition, I was able to achieve a grade of 7 for my final IB examination. Nicole Teo

STUDENTS' REVIEW "I had a major confidence boost!" QE has been very helpful in bringing out the best in me for Mathematics! In fact, I was always very lost in lessons, until I joined the class. Jayden was able to help us understand the requirements and key points of each question and component, by breaking down and approaching them methodically. Apart from letting me have a greater grasp of the subject, it boosted my confidence during the exam, keeping me calm and composed! Most importantly, the friendly and conducive environment made going for tuition something to look forward to! Rachel Wee ACS International, IB:42

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Whether your child is topping the cohort or achieving average grades, QE lessons are intelligently designed to help each child maximise his or her potential. Each QE tutor has specific strengths and address various learning needs. For instance, QE Junior tutors work best for students who need a patient mentor to explain textbook content, whereas QE Examiners are most suited for students who require pinpoint help for exam preparations.

Of course, attending tuition is not a necessity for every student. However, even for students who may cope well in school, QE’s curriculum is streamlined to help you better understand and pick up concepts efficiently. Customised notes and practices are crafted such that you can master topics and subjects in the shortest period of time, and have more time to pursue a greater depth of knowledge in these areas. Students who constantly seek to better themselves find QE’s lessons enriching and eye-opening.

QE works with the best in the industry. Each QE tutor is an IB graduate, IB teacher, or IB Examiner with vast experience at the best schools and knows the curriculum inside out. As IB specialists, we spend almost all of our working hours updating classroom materials, creating practice questions, and preparing for upcoming classes. On average, each tutor teaches 15 classes a week, way more than an average school teacher or tutor does, allowing us to stay ahead of the syllabus and consistently deliver classes at a highest level. We demand such a level of perfection that we only hire 1-2 tutors from every 100 profiles we see. Each tutor is cherry-picked and teaches a customised curriculum built on our highly rated E3 pedagogy for maximum productivity and exam performance.

Yes. QE offers a trial lesson for each subject. What’s more, you only pay for the trial lesson if you decide to sign up for classes, there will be no charge should you decide that you do not wish to enrol with us.

Inform your teacher if you are unable to make it for a lesson; you will be able to attend a makeup class. Alternatively, if the rest of the group class is agreeable to reschedule the class, the entire class will attend lessons on another arranged date.

For new students, we offer a trial lesson. This means that:

  1. You only pay for the trial lesson when you decide to enrol.
  2. Should you not continue, you do not have to pay for the lesson.

The fees applicable on registration are:

  1. A one-time material fee of $100 and registration fee of $50.
  2. 1 month of course fee as deposit for each subject.
  3. A termly fee for each subject.

Alternatively, you may pay on a credit basis if you are signing up for ad hoc classes or coursework like IA or EE.

Listed fees are for four classes per month; in the event where there are five classes, fees will be pro-rated.

Group class sizes at QE are kept small, at 3 to 6 students, depending on the subject taught. Small class sizes help ensure that tutors are able to monitor each student’s learning progress throughout lessons and address learning needs immediately.

We also believe that class sizes should be kept small to facilitate the discussion and discourse between students during lessons.

Should you wish to form your own group class, we are happy to start with a count of two students and you may propose your preferred timing.

Group classes are conducted on a weekly basis over 1 hour 45 minutes sessions.

Individual classes are conducted on a weekly basis over 1 hour 30 minutes sessions.
