The word “Eureka” was popularized by the Greek mathematician Archimedes. Eureka is a transliteration from the Greek equivalent “heúrka”, an interjection used to emphasize excitement out of a sudden discovery. Eureka is equivalent to the proclamation “I have found it!”. The word, as the chosen name of the tutorial center, aptly expresses the joy and excitement that we teachers feel imparting knowledge to our students as we guide and assist them in their academic journeys.
Since its establishment in 2007, Eureka has already trained more than a thousand students by offering quality tutorials at affordable prices. What distinguishes Eureka! from other centers is its ability to handle all types of students, even those who are enrolled in international curricula (K-12 system) such as the International Baccalaureate Program, the IGCSE, the AP Program, and other rigorous programs. The recent migration of the Philippines’ educational system to K-12 bids well for our country’s goal to be at par with the rest of the world but the transition would need the help of experienced educators in preparing the students as well as the parents for the K-12 system. We, at Eureka are confident that the adaptive method devised by Eureka rises to this challenge and was devised under the framework of the K-12 system. The adaptive method is able to measure the level of the students, observe their way of thinking, and devise the appropriate program suited for the students.
Eureka has expanded from a single room to the entire second floor of JEMP Building in Cabarrus BF Homes Paranaque and offers academic and language training to both local and foreign students. It has students from private schools such as De La Salle Santiago Zobel, PAREF Southridge and Woodrose, St. Paul, St. Andrew School, Montessori de Manila, Colegio de San Agustin, as well as international schools like Brent IS, International School of Manila, European International School,MIT International School, and Southville International School to name a few.
