PROBLEMS JC STUDENTS FACE

a level tuition

EXAM QUESTIONS DIFFER FROM
WHAT IS TAUGHT IN CLASS

Teachers in school spend time prioritising the introduction of content over problem solving and exam techniques; students are unable to solve the questions set, which are vastly different from what is taught in school.

LACK OF EXPOSURE
TO EXAM QUESTIONS

The A-Levels are known to be set on a few iterations of specific question types. Students who lack exposure to question trends and analysis do not fare well in the exams.

STUDENTS HAVE
HIGH STRESS LEVELS

With a short runway to the high-stakes A-Levels exams, students spend 90-120 hours on their coursework and fail to organize their time effectively.

TIGHT TIMELINE
IN SCHOOL

Due to the packed school timetable, students lack sufficient time to hone their understanding of core subjects.

INABILITY TO PINPOINT WHAT
TO PRIORITISE FOR EXAMS

FAQs

Is QE’s tuition suitable for me?

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.

If I’m already doing well in school, why should I attend lessons at QE?

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.

What makes your tutors different from school teachers or those from other tuition centres?

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.

What fees do I pay when I join QE?

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 $80.
  2. 1 month of course fee as deposit for each subject.
  3. A termly fee for each subject.
Can I attend a trial lesson?

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.

How many classes are there in a month?

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

What are your group class sizes?
Group class sizes at QE are kept small, at 4 to 8 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.

Can I form a new group class?

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.

How long is each class?

Group classes are conducted on a weekly basis over two-hour sessions.

Individual classes are conducted on a weekly basis over one-half hour sessions.

What should I do if I miss my lessons?

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.
