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 addresses 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 intensive exam preparations.

Tuition is not a need for every student. However, even for students who do well in school, QE’s curriculum is streamlined to help shorten the learning curve and consistently outperform in coursework and exams. Customised notes and targeted practices guide students to master topics in the shortest period of time, and pursue greater depth of knowledge. Students who constantly seek to challenge themselves will find QE’s lessons highly effective and engaging.

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 targeted practices, 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 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 curriculum based on our highly rated E3 pedagogy for maximum productivity and exam performance.

Yes. QE offers a trial lesson for each subject. Students only pay for the trial lesson if they decide to sign up. There will be no charge should students decide that they do not wish to enrol with us.

Please inform our staff in advance if your child is unable to make it for a lesson; he or she 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.

  1. Students only pay for the trial lesson when they decide to enrol.
  2. Should a student not continue, there is no fee chargeable for the trial lesson.

The fees applicable on registration are:

  1. A one-time material fee of $100 and registration fee of $50.
  2. A quarterly fee(per 3 months) for each subject.
  3. A one-month fee as deposit for each subject.

Alternatively, students may pay on a credit basis 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 8 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 minimum 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.
