Five (5) Foundational Skills in Math (The Eurekan Way!)

1. Good foundation in Mathematics

One of the major reasons why students hate Math is the lack of good foundation. Teachers in Eureka are well aware of this, and thus try to eradicate this fear by instilling the right attitude among students. How? Well, practice makes perfect! 

2. Advanced Learning

Tutors in Eureka come from the most distinguished universities such as University of the Philippines, Ateneo De Manila University, and other prestigious universities in the country. Thus, students are guaranteed quality tutorials from experienced and competent tutors equipped to handle students even from International Schools such as Brent international School, International School of Manila, Southville Inernational School, as well as exclusive schools such as PAREF Southridge and Woodrose, Xavier University and De La Salle Zobel to name a few. 

3. Adoption of Singapore Math

Singapore is a country known to have the best Math program in the world.Singapore math is the teaching method used from pre-school to elementary in Singapore. It basically involves three steps: concrete, pictorial and abstract. Initially, the students are instructed to use concrete things such as match sticks, dice, or chips to be able to visualize better the concepts. Then, they are to express mathematical concepts through drawing. When they already grasped the concepts, they are to solve problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols. 

Eureka adopts the Singaporean Math as an alternative to traditional Math programs in the country.

4. Effective Appreciation of the Field of Mathematics

Kids nowadays are proven to be more visual – they tend to learn more using images and videos. Eureka! offers Math tutorials not in the conventional “give-a-problem-then-solve” way. Teaches in Eureka! use technology in the teaching and learning of Mathematics. Examples of these are videos of Math applications, pictures of everyday Math problems, and graphs shown by software.

5. Development of Critical Skills and Abstract Reasoning

Laboratory classes are not only for Science classes. Tutors encourage students to find ways to answer simple real life problems using Mathematics. By recognizing that there are different ways of solving a particular problem, tutors encourage critical reasoning through engaging and challenging exercises that are open- ended.Tutors act as guides to help students discover answers by themselves. Ultimately, Eureka aims to impart passion in Mathematics among students while developing their critical and abstract reasoning skills.

SAT 1 and 2 Tutorials

Scholastic Aptitude/Assessment Test Review (SAT I and SAT II)

sat

The Scholastic Aptitude/Assessment Test (SAT I) and the SAT Subject Tests (SAT II) are standardized tests taken by students who wish to study in the colleges and universities in the United States of America. These tests evaluate the academic readiness of students bound for American universities although the results can also be used when applying for other non-American universities such as the National University of Singapore, Hong Kong University, Tokyo University, and other prominent universities. Developed and published by The College Board, the SAT gauges English literacy and writing skills of students as well as their mathematical competencies.

Eureka’s SAT review program employs the principle of “learning by doing”. Carefully-crafted exercises are given to students to pinpoint areas of weakness. These areas of weakness are then addressed by tutors who correct misconceptions and provide exercises that reinforce understanding of essential concepts. Tutors in Eureka also act as raters to give the students a prediction of the score they are likely to get in the actual SAT. Based on the scores of past students, Eureka’s predicted score is within five (plus minus 5) percent of what students get in the actual SAT.

Eureka has successfully assisted hundreds of students in the Philippines to significantly improve their SAT scores. In 2013, John Lee, one of Eureka’s students registered a perfect SAT score after two months of review. In 2012, Peter Hyung, gained admission to UC Berkeley after achieving an SAT score that belonged to the top 5%.

Eureka’s Academic Tutorials

eurekacentre.comacademic tutorials

Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”

- Albert Einstein.

Academic Tutorials provide valuable support to students of all levels. The increased demand for academic tutorials is in a way a reflection of the advancement in the curricula and programs offered by many institutions. Every year, new subjects in almost every perceivable area of knowledge emerge and the amount of knowledge created further creates other areas of knowledge in the process. The cycle is a never ending one and it likely that many of what we know now will be outdated in as short as five years.

It is parallel with this way of thinking that we at Eureka, as a tutorial center, approach academic tutorials. We offer a wide range of subjects that have benefited and continue to benefit students of all ages. As a tutoring center, we employ the most number of full-time tutors/teachers in Metro Manila in order to attend to the diverse and evolving needs of our students. Since our inception in 2007, we at Eureka have already helped thousands of students achieve academic success by providing intensive academic programs and comprehensive study materials that help improve skills and promote excellence by demanding persistence and collaboration. We believe that by teaching students how to think, and by demanding excellence from our students, we make sure that they can adapt to the ever changing intellectual landscapes that the future will surely bring.

It is our commitment to helping our students that we continue our journey with them. And we will persist. 

 

The following are the subjects offered:

English Speaking/Speech Enhancement Tutorial

eurekacentre.comEnglish speakingProficient and skilled use of the English language can enhance career prospects which allow people to achieve success in different fields and can open up many opportunities. Through the study of English, a range of advantages are available. Quality courses offer candidates the opportunity to improve job prospects, the capacity to communicate with others, and access to information right across the world.

            

Arguably the greatest advantage of studying English is the vast increase in employment opportunities and career prospects. People who can speak English fluently (possibly together with the first language) are highly sought after by companies of many types, including international companies. With the world becoming so much closer and more connected, opportunities to travel and explore different parts of the world are more available, and being knowledgeable of the English language enables a traveller to communicate better. In so many parts of the world, English is the common language. When you have a command of the English language, travelling and interacting with people of different nationalities can become easier and more enjoyable.

            In a recent study entitled “The Contribution of Multilingualism to Creativity”, it is proven that learning an additional language elicits a lot of benefits for the brain. English as a Second Language (ESL) students, as well as anyone engaging in obtaining multilingual abilities, were found to have obtained mental benefits characterized as the following:

            1. The ability to communicate in a new language

                It is proven that people who are committed to and engaged in learning new languages gain the confidence of creating connections with a wider range of the world’s                         population.

            2. The brain undergoes a change in electrical activity

 Before the study, it was believed that this change in brain functioning only occurred when the students had obtained a high level of language ability in the new language,  but the study revealed this change  may occur at the earliest stages of language learning.

            3. Superior memory function

                Language learning showed an increase in memory capacities. This ability is especially strong in short-term memory. It is considered as a huge benefit for it allows the                     braintostore information for longer durations while thinking processes are activated.

            4. Increased mental flexibility

                It allows a person to use the different avenues for thought for it keeps the mental pathways opened up. Constant exercising of the brain keeps it flexible and agile.

            5. Increased problem-solving abilities

                A person also benefits from language learning by gaining increased problem-solving abilities in all of the following areas: abstract thinking skills, concept information,                       creative hypothesis formulation, strengthened capacity to identify, understand and solve problems; the ability to focus on a task by filtering out distractions and                                 extraneous information and an increase in multi-tasking ability.

            6. Greater comprehension for how language works and is used

                The acquisition of knowledge posts benefits by creating a greater comprehension for how language works and is used. The study found individuals with multilingual                         communication were able to better read and interpret social situations which improved their performance in social settings.

            7. Prevents the deterioration of brain functioning over time

 It was reported and proven in different studies that those individuals who were multilingual (those who are proficient in at least two languages) had the lesser possibility  of developing age-related cognitive problems such as dementia.

            8. Increased ability in digital literacy

 All these benefits are culminated by the increased ability of individuals in digital literacy. Because of these mental abilities, individuals which are multilingual have a  noticeable ability to stay up to date with modern technologies. Our intelligence tends to produce technological and social change at a rate faster than our institutions and  emotions can cope with. We therefore find ourselves continually trying to accommodate new realities within inappropriate existing institutions, and trying to think about  those new realities in traditional, but sometimes dangerously irrelevant terms.                       

            For years, the popular methodology for learning a second language was to focus on grammar and sentences first and then on vocabulary. Recently, however, there has been a shift toward recognition that learning vocabulary first leads to more success. Having a base of vocabulary to draw from makes learning grammar and sentence structure easier.The program that Eureka employs is based on the concept of building a solid vocabulary foundation before tackling other aspects of the language. With the aim of making the students more engaged and involved in the process, the tutors present new words that are frequently and repeatedly in input. The more frequently the language learners are exposed to vocabulary, the more they are able to have retention of the words.

            For the vocabulary program to be effective, it should avoid other kinds of elaboration that might produce negative effects on the learning of new words. Some learners may find it distracting or confusing if they are asked to perform other tasks at the same time that they are trying to commit new words to memory. Studies have shown, for example, that learners who were asked to either list their emotional associations for foreign language terms or count the letters in each foreign term they were learning actually had poorer recall for those vocabulary words than learners who concentrated just on the words themselves.

            After broadening the word bank, the students are then exposed to the application of the words that they learned by reinforcing other skills in English such as speaking, listening, reading and writing. This allows the students to be exposed on the holistic application of the English language.

            Eureka is aware that learning the language is just a half way to fluency. For people who speak English as a second language, several pitfalls may stand in the way of communicating fluently with native speakers. Even with a firm grasp of English grammar and a full arsenal of vocabulary, correct native-level pronunciation remains an obstacle for many language learners. That is why an accent reduction program (simply known as “accent training”) is also included in the Speech Enhancement program.

            Accent reduction is the process of modifying a non-native speaker’s pronunciation to render a language more easily and effectively understood by native speakers. Offered in group classes and private tutoring sessions by trained and experienced instructors, accent reduction courses are intended to aid non-native speakers achieve fluency in American English pronunciation.

Home Based Tutoring

Academic Assistance on Delivery
Home based

How did the tutorial system start? Have you ever wondered where, when and how the tutorial system commenced? The tutorial method of teaching, where students are taught individually or
in very small groups of two or three, developed as the collegiate system in Oxford and Cambridge Universities was established.  Teaching has existed in Oxford since the 11thcentury and the role of tutors was documented in the 15th century, when Oxford tutors were described as “having responsibility for the conduct and instruction of their younger colleagues” (Moore, 1968).  Thus, the early role of the tutor was both pastoral as well as academic.

            

Tutorial as the Support System of Modern Education

The tutorial today still maintains its distinctive role in education as what Oxford and Cambridge aimed.  Described as the “jewel in the crown” (Palfreyman, 2008) of British education, the tutorial is the focus of much praise as the foundation of an Oxbridge education and the educational system of most of the widely acclaimed universities all over the world.  In the last decade, multiple studies have been conducted exploring the unique learning benefits of the tutorial method. As the present university website states, it is through the tutorial system that students develop powers of independent and critical thought, analytical and problem-solving abilities, and skills in both written and oral communication and argument.

 

Home-based tutoring system has the following benefits that the students can maximize:

1. Home based tutorial maintains a one-on-one tutorial approach.

2. Students receive individualized instruction tailored to fit their learning styles as well as their distinctive needs and gifts, or strengths and weaknesses.

3. Home based students can move through their course work at their own pace - a student who struggles can go more slowly, a very bright student can cover the material as quickly as he or she can master the content.

4. Parents can take part in choosing the academic materials that they think will perfectly fit their child’s need.

5. Home based tutorial allows for more flexibility in a student’s schedule, in the teaching methods used, in the time spent with individual courses, with the materials used for course work, and for students to be involved in real life activities.

6. The time alloted for tutorial will surely be maximized.

7. Since there is less wasted time, the student will have time left over in the day to explore other interests or pursue the development of special talents or skills. Meaning, they can still avail of other types of tutorials which can aid in honing or acquiring other skills (eg. music, sports, arts, and more.)

8. The schedule is flexible as long as the tutor is available at the student’s desired time. This  advan-tage gives the student a less stressful and more relaxed teaching and learning environment.

9. The students are regularly and more involved in the activities during the session.

10. The student is more focused on studying for there are less interruptions.

11. Individuality is encouraged; home based tutorials drive the learner on how to think for themselves, and how to think critically.

                      

In addition, Eureka created a tutorial program which fits to each student’s abilities and learning style. The Center also has an extensive library of resources and hand-on materials that a student can use to better understand his or her subject matter. 

Eureka serves elementary, middle and high school, and college-level students.

Grammar may not be the most important thing in the world, but it surely pays to possess a good knowledge of basic (to not-so-basic) grammatical rules especially when writing.

Eureka provides tutorials for all three levels- basic, intermediate, and advanced levels in the English Grammar. The Center provides a diagnostic exam to determine the current level of a student and then devises a suitable program for him or her. The diagnostic exam measures fluency, accuracy, vocabulary, and mastery through a standardized grammar test used by several universities around the world.

While myriad of students hate the exacting approach employed by some grammar teachers, Eureka’s method is both communicative and interactive. It is the goal of Eureka that grammar be learned in the least painful way possible- through everyday English and passages that help a person convey thoughts accurately and spontaneously.

Speech Enhancement Program

The way we use  and express a language shapes the way we think. Our manner of speaking and our formulation of personal statements give a bird’s eye view of ourselves to our audience. Meaning, our self expression often reflects and reveals how others would create an impression about us. For instance, grammar flukes can profoundly affect how we see the world. Expression of  a certain language is a unique human gift which is centered on defining our personality and knowledge as humans.

Eureka’s Speech Enhancement Program is carefully crafted to train the students and individuals to communicate effectively and speak confidently in school or in the workplace. The program focuses on public speaking and presentation, accent training/accent reduction, intonation, pronunciation, diction and vocabulary.
