Testimonials

Hear what our students have to say on our programmes and teachers.

Lessons at QE allowed me to thoroughly review the entire economics syllabus, not leaving any doubts before the exam. I would like to thank Mr. Sean Lim for the concise notes and exam practices.

From my chemistry course at QE, I was able to learn the entire term’s topics in a few lessons. It was very helpful in my understanding when the teacher went through the past papers and practices.

Thank you for making even the most boring subjects like English and Economics fun. Will always remember the commitment and extra effort all my tutors put in to help me prepare for exams!

Park Ha Young, IB Headstart Programme, AIS

After repeatedly failing Chemistry, I decided to join Quintessential. With only 5 months left to the IB examinations, Mike managed to guide me and help me achieve a grade 7 in Chemistry. Thank you so much Sir!

Naveen Lakshman, IB Revision Crash Course, SJI

Through the IA course, I gained a lot of insights about coursework requirements and writing techniques. The tutor was very specific with all comments and suggestions, explaining and guiding me along from proposal to my final draft.

I was having difficulty with my Econs EE. With Mr Lim’s guidance, I managed to come up with a proper workflow and recommendations. I achieved an A for my EE and I highly recommend the course!

    We understand that every student has unique needs and goals. Our experienced academic advisors are here to guide you through the process of selecting the program that aligns best with your objectives and learning style. Feel free to reach out to us for personalised assistance.

    We offer prep courses for various IGCSE, IB and ’A’ levels subjects like Chemistry, English, Literature, Business, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Economics and General Paper. Various curriculum are demanding and intensive. Additionally, many concepts tend to be complex yet only serve as enrichment purposes. Hence, many students find difficulty when it comes to revising for the exams. A short course that provides an overview and crystallises key concepts can help significantly by aiming to be comprehensive yet succinct.

    Most students do not strategise when studying for exams; they tend to lack practical skills/answering techniques and instead worry about trying to memorise their notes/textbooks. The aim of our prep courses is do away with memorising and build good understanding by clarifying what kind of questions to expect in exams, what concepts to focus on and how to strategise their preparations, how to tackle key examination questions, how to improve their answering techniques.

    Many students only realise what they lack when they begin their own revision. We believe that an intensive course right before the exams will complement their revision and help clarify questions on various key topics and concepts. This is usually done through an analysis of various past questions in a topical manner.

    While most students have access to past questions and solutions, we find that a big problem is not in understanding the answers but learning how to arrive at such answers and applying them in other questions. We believe students can improve if we address gaps in application skills; by breaking down and explaining various answers to show “How exactly do we arrive at this answer and apply it elsewhere?” Our intensive courses aim to do this.

    Our exam preparation courses are designed to go beyond mere content review. We focus on exam skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and answering strategies. Our comprehensive approach, which includes reviewing textbook content, solving past papers, attempting mock exams, and analysing model answers, ensures that students are thoroughly prepared to excel in their exams.

    Our courses are conducted individually (1-1) or in a small group setting.

    Through a topical revision, we meticulously deconstruct key question types, analyse effective strategies to answer these questions, and help students develop a structured answering framework.  We also incorporate a unique approach of reversed teaching by students, which tests their ability to comprehend and apply concepts. We also employ a unique teaching method where students actively participate in reverse teaching, allowing them to demonstrate their understanding and application skills. Our main aim is to move beyond rote memorization by providing a streamlined yet comprehensive approach to reviewing the exam requirements.

    Our IA/EE/TOK support programme provides comprehensive assistance at every stage of the assignment process. From drafting research frameworks and generating content to conducting academic studies and editing for final submission, our experienced instructors are here to offer guidance and support to ensure your success.

    Yes, our programs cater to students across a wide range of academic levels and abilities. Whether you’re aiming for top scores or seeking additional support to overcome challenges, our programs are designed to meet you where you are and help you achieve your academic goals.

    The tutors of the centre are very professional and passionate in terms of teaching and elevating my skills. I was able to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of my current way of studying through tuitions in this centre, successfully leading to improving scores. Dr Hee lead me with passion, which contributed the most for me achieving 7 for IB Business HL. Thank you so much!

    Took their tutoring for almost every subject when I was struggling in IB. Generally, really awesome tutors that break stuff down so I could finally understand some difficult concepts or even topical questions which seemed to be skimmed through in school. From my experience being tutored in the Sciences, Math and Econs, all my tutors were very thorough and encouraging in their teachings, making sure that you understand in depth about the basics of each topic (they'll go through the material as many times if you don't understand or forget), before giving you a few tips on some shortcuts you can use for the exams, as well as providing enough practices such that together with your school's past year papers, you don't have to print out any more for self-revision. If you are willing to accept constructive criticism and do the work that's given, I'd fully recommend this for students that feel left behind in school. However, just keep in mind to constantly keep in touch with the tutors and administrators for lesson plans, and notify them in advance if there are lessons that you're taking extra or missing out. The arrangements of lessons aren't the most flexible and smooth, but they can surely rearrange it if you're at least telling them a week in advance.

    Seeked Economics HL tutoring, got 7 and A for Economics EE. Sean (my tutor) was very patient and understanding, and clarified any questions I had. Outside of lesson time, he was very responsive to the many questions I would ask. Thank you Sean and Quintessential!
