ELL/ESL Program

GRADE: 1 – 6

The ELL (English Language Learner) program is designed for students who are seeking education in Canada but cannot yet communicate effectively in English. Transitioning to a new society, culture, and language is a challenging time for any newcomer to Canada. At Quantum, we want to reassure parents that our staff has extensive experience with improving the English skills of many students in similar situations. Our multifaceted approach to English learning includes an in-depth focus on the key areas of learning including reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Additionally, the ELL program aims to improve students’ skills in areas of grammar, vocabulary development, and pronunciation. We understand parents are eager for their children to transition from ELL into the general populace as soon as possible, so that is why we focus all our energy on increasing each student’s abilities as quickly as the student can manage.. The Quantum ELL program has not only helped hundreds of students achieve their academic success,  but also has cultivated students to become active, participating citizens who are comfortable in both English and their native languages.

Creative Writing

GRADE: 5 – 12

Writing is an essential part of anyone’s skill set, and at Quantum we want to assist students in marrying structure with imagination. Our creative writing classes not only focus on various writing techniques along with essential story and character elements, but we also study stimulating and inspiring pieces of literature in order to plant the seed of creativity in your children. We believe setting goals for students is an important part of education, so we write not only to improve but to compete. Starting in 2013, the children in our creative writing classes have been entered in various writing contests in order to pique their interest in writing and foster their innate creativity. Furthermore, we have established an in house publication named The Quantum Times. The publication is put out monthly and is another way for the students to showcase their writing techniques.

Public Speaking

GRADE: 8 – 10

Public speaking is an indispensable life skill to obtain. Being able to use this skill earlier in life will give children a great foundation for their future years, both in their academics and life. Instructors involved in Quantum’s public speaking classes help their students to not only build their skills in literacy and presentation but also improvisation. This will enable the students to think critically and logically to express their ideas and thoughts in their own words. This will also translate into the student being able to express their own experience, beliefs, and understanding of certain topics in the English language. The sense of confidence and intellect derived from public speaking will benefit them greatly in an academic setting and also in relationship building.

Literature Analysis

Literature analysis is a course designed for students from grade 10 to 12. The content consists of poetry analysis, rhetorical writing analysis, persuasive essay writing, and the use of higher level literacy devices. Students will be exposed and immersed in a variety of passages through which they witness the magic of the English language. Through Quantum’s literature analysis classes, students are able to develop their literature comprehension, make relevant connections with various types of texts, thus, build a strong foundation for university English classes and any type of writing exams, such as AP English and SAT exams.

SAT

In addition to the knowledge and skills preparation, Quantum SAT prep classes help give students a realistic overview of what the questions would be like on a SAT. Since SAT is a cross-grade exam, the students will be introduced not only to the grade-level content, but also the extension of the concepts covered. Quantum takes this chance to challenge students who are preparing for SAT to bring out their potentials of which they might not have discovered. These classes also involve the extensive use of mock-exams for students to practice their time management and exam strategies. These exam-like scenarios allow teachers to see the students’ strengths and thus improve their weaknesses.

AP Courses

AP (Advanced Placement) is a program run by the College Board that allows high school students to take college courses to earn college credits and qualify for more advanced courses when they start college. AP is also a great way for students to boost their university applications by showing their passion and ability to challenge themselves. There are a variety of AP courses we offer, such as the popular AP English and Language Composition, AP Psychology, AP Calculus, AP Statistics, etc. Preparing for AP exams will expand the students’ knowledge and develop the students’ mind. This will make the transition from high school to university expectations more manageable.

IB Courses

One of the benefits of the IB program is to prepare students for academic success in college.  IB program is initially designed with a purpose to give students around the world a chance to earn a rigorous, internationally recognized diploma, which they could then use for entry into universities. IB English focuses on inspiration, critical thinking, and learning potential. It is considered as a more challenging curriculum. It increases students’ learning abilities. Due to the similar difficulty with university courses, students who graduated from the IB Program are more likely to succeed in university.

Quantum brings certified IB instructors with more than 15 years of teaching experience and have successfully cultivated students’ logical thinking, critical thinking, and research skills. Our teachers will help students in unlocking the critical strategies and intellectual means in order to produce consistent and high quality papers.

This is the perfect exam that helps students whose native language is not English to prepare for the next chapter of their life.
