Teachers who deliver results
Teachers at QED are leaders in their subject fields and have advanced degrees (PhD, Masters) as well as vast experience in teaching.
How QED is different
Lots of colleges staff their classes with young tutors who lack teaching and subject experience. At QED we know there is no substitute for an expert.
Friendly and Knowledgeable
A boring education is never effective, QED teachers know how to make the content enjoyable and engaging.
Teachers with a love for learning
Teachers at QED have extensive expertise in their subject with many holding advanced degrees such as university doctorates. Explaining concepts clearly is best done by a teacher who understands the subject inside out, better yet by one that wants to share their love of the subject. Join QED today to leverage a first-class educational environment and improve in English and Maths!
