Frequently Asked Questions
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:
- You only pay for the trial lesson when you decide to enrol.
- Should you not continue, you do not have to pay for the lesson.
The fees applicable on registration are:
- A one-time material fee of $100 and registration fee of $50.
- 1 month of course fee as deposit for each subject.
- 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.
