Elaine Qin, the founder and CEO of APASS Education Group, began her journey of education and personal development back in her native country, China, as a PhD researcher and university professor. In the field of Materials Science.
As a newcomer to Canada in 2003, Elaine experienced the challenge of pursuing her professional career in research and education and so she decided to make a transition to administrative work and social services. She assumed her new role at MOSAIC, which is a non-profit organization that provides services to new immigrants, as a program assistant in Volunteer Program and later became the Program Facilitator. As a result of this transition, Elaine developed a strong passion for community service and leadership.
This led to the establishment of APASS Education Group in 2015, founded on Elaine’s belief that education should be the core of both personal and social change. As a result, APASS Education Group has now become a platform where education and dedication to growth are intertwined, creating an environment where talents are identified, fostered, and carefully nurtured. Elaine has used her passion for education and her leadership skills to help create an educational setting where students from different backgrounds and with different expectations can receive the attention that they need in order to achieve their goals and will become successful and responsible citizens. To this end, APASS Education Group serves a solid platform that offers a range of services and programs, including educational consulting, academic improvement programs, language enhancement programs, test prep, public speaking and debate, non-profit Gavel clubs (Toastmasters’ Youth Program) and sponsoring company program of junior achievement BC.
