Research has shown that nearly 90 percent of what is learned is forgotten within a day of learning it. Frequent self-assessment is a powerful tool to increase retention and better recall. It promotes active, not passive, repetition of information.
Testing engages the mind in a different and more demanding way than straight memorization or being fed answers. Repeating facts right after learning them has no added memory benefit, unless there is effort attached.
In fact, one of the most consistent findings in cognitive psychology is that testing leads to increased retention more than studying alone does.
Testing requires harder work to retrieve a memory, and the greater our increase in retrieval and storage strength, the greater is the learning that happens.

Recommended for inquisitive, highly motivated, independent learners for self-assessment and for developing a learning-for-life attitude. Specially recommended for already good students who want to be better; achievement-oriented students competing for scholastic honors; and for students intending to enter top schools like UP, Ateneo, De La Salle, Philippine Science High School, Xavier, Miriam, and other academically prestigious schools with highly competitive admission tests.
Tutoring sessions are focused on helping students overcome the learning difficulties experienced with lessons taken up in class.
Students select from among several tutoring packages available and make corresponding payments in advance. Requests for tutorial services are initiated by students. All requests are inquiry-based, to enable tutors to respond directly to the academic topic or subject matter specified in the request. Using assigned homework or our online tests keep tutoring confined under the content and performance standards required under the K-12 Curriculum Guides.
