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

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%.

Higher Math refers to Math subjects offered in the last two years of senior high school, as well as those offered in college/university.This includes advanced Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Differential and Integral Calculus, Non-Linear Math, and Differential Equations. These Math courses require extensive foundation in Math subjects such as **Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry*.**

Eureka offers tutorials for all Higher Math subjects. Some of the tutors in Eureka are Math majors and University professors who teach/have taught the same subjects in university. The Calculus by Louis Leithold is one of the books used in Eureka to teach Higher Mathematics.

Eureka believes that establishing a firm foundation in Mathematics starts from a young age. Students who acquire mathematical competency at an earlier age generally benefit from enhanced logic and reasoning.

Students of Eureka benefit from the following advantages:

**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.

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

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 foreign universities. These tests evaluate the academic readiness and competency 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, The University of Hong kong, and other reputable universities. Developed and published by The College Board, the SAT aims to measures English literacy in both reading and writing as well as a student’s mathematical ability.The SAT is used by many institutions as an objective measure of a student’s ability although a high score in the SAT is not the sole criterion for admission.

Eureka’s SAT review 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 provide exercises that reinforce concepts essential to understanding. Tutors 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 hundreds past students, Eureka’s predicted score is within five (plus minus 5) percent of what students get in the actual SAT. This accuracy is the result of years of extensive exposure and experience of the tutors handling the review.

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 while Peter Hyung, gained admission to UC Berkeley after achieving an SAT score that belonged to the 98% percentile of all test takers. Erick Lim achieved an SAT score on the redesigned test higher than the average score obtained by Harvard freshmen.

**It can be argued that a student’s SAT score (or ACT) is the biggest factor determining acceptance to elite universities and Ivy League universities.**
