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.


Quintessential’s SAT preparation course is the leading choice for all Singaporean SAT applicants. We take full responsibility to provide the best strategy for mathematics, reading and writing. Our E3 Quintessential Methodology will guide students to effectively tackle all SAT exam questions.

I really enjoyed your SAT lessons and your inspiring stories of Oxford and Yale. The practices and exam techniques are extremely useful. I feel my vocab, writing and reading have improved tremendously. Will do my best to get a perfect 2400!

Sean is an excellent college and SAT consultant. I am inspired by his real life examples of students who made it and have become more confident for my applications! His content delivery has helped me in my SAT and I definitely could not have done it without his help.

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.

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. On average, each tutor teaches 12 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. At QE, we offer 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 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.
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.

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 two-hour sessions.

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