Online Tuition

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.

Leading Provider of IP/ A level Tutorial Programmes

Quintessential’s Integrated Programme (IP) classes are designed to cater to the tuition needs of students enrolled in IP schools.

The IP programme does not require students to take the ‘O’ level examination thus the instructional programme in IP schools differ significantly from that in standard secondary schools. Our IP tuition classes are exclusively for these students who are currently enrolled in the IP programme and are therefore created to suit the rigour.

IP tutors at Quintessential Education are a select group of teachers who have experience teaching IP students and students from ‘A’ level and IB programme. This is important particularly for IP students as they ultimately sit for the GCE ‘A’ level examination OR International Baccalaureate at the end of the IP course.  Having teachers that possess both sets of experience is thus crucial for the effective preparation of our students.

Our Master tutors guide students on how to apply and refine essential exam techniques through thematic content and systematic practices. Additionally, there are constant feedback loops and self-evaluation exercise to help students to build the confidence and skills to manage the short runway to the ‘A’ levels.

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.

I joined QE 6 months before the final examinations. Within the short span of time, Mr Mike gave very specific practices and drills to help me dissect various question types and explain key terms in detail. Also, I found the final crash course very helpful in consolidating my understanding and covering content in JC1 which I had forgotten long ago.

GP classes at QE were very informative and helped me to understand various current affairs and how to integrate them into my arguments. Also, the writing practices helped to identify my weaknesses and I was able to review them after the classes to clarify my doubts. Overall, I felt the course improved my argumentative skills significantly for the final exams

Ashley Tan, National JC

QE had patient teachers who catered to my learning needs! The comprehensive notes and extra timed practices and post reviews helped me improve tremendously during my A Level year for the final exams eventually.,

Celine Yeo, Nanyang JC

The economics tutor here was extremely helpful, providing clear and concise notes, in addition to being open to additional consultations for his students to clarify any misunderstandings. He is among the best teachers to have taught me, and I’m very grateful for it!

Gu Jia Wen, Raffles Institution (JC)

I improved greatly from the math sessions at QE. The post lesson consultations helped greatly in my exam skills. Also, lessons are engaging and useful in helping me to grasp the complex concepts, especially through practices and feedback in class.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

QE was established with you in mind – whether you are struggling academically in school, topping your cohort or achieving average grades, our lessons are designed to help you maximise your potential and challenge yourself. For students who struggle to keep up with their syllabus in school, and require a tutor to help them identify their misconceptions and provide insights on how to improve on their practices, QE’s curriculum is designed to guide you through that. Our tutors have years of experiences honing the skills of students and providing insider knowledge on examination and answering techniques which will allow you to see significant improvement in your academics.
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.

Our tutors are dedicated to teaching beyond what schools can offer. Each tutor is cherry-picked and teaches a customised curriculum written by past MOE teachers and examiners of the ‘A’ Level, IB and ‘O’ Level syllabus, crafted to address common misconceptions of students and to ensure that students are in touch with the requirements of their examinations.

Moreover, QE’s tutors are committed to ensuring that students are provided with the most premium tutoring services – they are more than willing to spend time going through students’ practices, and re-explain any concepts after classes, if students require clarification.

Yes! At QE, we offer a paid trial lesson, for each subject. This means you only pay for the trial lesson when you enrol, and we will not collect any material fee or deposit from you upfront.

Inform your teacher if you are unable to make it for a lesson – depending on whether the rest of the group class is able to postpone the lesson, you will be informed of the change in class schedule.

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

  1. You only pay for the trial lesson when you enrol.
  2. We do not collect your material fee and deposit upfront.
  3. Only when you decide to continue with lessons, will we itemise the material fee and deposit in your bill.

The joining fees applicable are:

  1. A one-time material fee of $100.
  2. A one-time registration fee of $50.
  3. 1 month of course fee as deposit for each subject.
  4. A termly fee for each subject.
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 like ours help ensure that each student is given targeted attention from their tutor – tutors are able to monitor their progress throughout lessons and ensure that each student has a holistic and coherent understanding of every concept taught.

We also believe that class sizes should be kept small to facilitate the discussion and discourse between students during lessons. The dynamism and effectiveness of such discussions are ensured by our small class sizes.

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

Group classes are conducted on a weekly basis over 1hr 45min sessions.

Individual classes are conducted on a weekly basis over 1hr 45min sessions.
