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.
“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.

DISCLAIMER: The AP and the IB are programs administered, owned, and handled the by College Board and the IBO. Eureka! has no affiliation with these organisations.
The IB External Examinations
The IB external exam is given twice a year, in May and in November. The external exam is considered one of the most crucial parts in determining the overall mark received by an IB diploma/certificate candidate. Reviewing for the external exam is essential in achieving a desired IB score. The IB external exam accounts for 70 to 80% of a candidate’s IB score.
Eureka offers extensive review program for the IB external examinations both for Higher and Standard Levels. Subjects include Math HL/SL, Physics SL/HL, Chemistry SL/HL, Biology SL/HL, Psychology SL/HL, Business SL/HL, and Economics SL/HL. Eureka’s Review Program for the External Exams is a comprehensive two-month long program covering two years of the IB program.
The acronym AP stands for Advanced Placement. The AP offers college level curriculum and examinations to high school students. College Board, a group of expert educators, handles AP in the United States and Canada.
Eureka! offers review for the following Advanced Placement Exams:
Because of the inherent difficulty of AP subjects, it is recommended that the student reviews at least two months prior to the schedule of his/her exams to provide enough time to cover all the necessary topics.
Eureka's students have achieved distinction after reviewing at Eureka. One of Eureka's students, Peter Hyung of MIT, scored a "“5 in AP Calculus BC. This is the highest mark achievable in AP.
