Review with the Masters
Providing Teaching Excellence Since 1988
Our center has engaged in offering highly intensive and effective review of high school and college entrance tests since 1988. We have produced a number of students who made it at the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, other prestigious universities and colleges in Manila, Philippine Science High School, and other science high schools in the country.
Our review classes are handled by highly qualified and experienced teachers, who are mostly U.P., Ateneo, and Philippine Science High School alumni. The lessons we give in the review classes and the questions we include in the sample simulated tests are formulated based on the actual questions given in the PSHS NCE, UPCAT and ACET.
We started offering our books/ reviewers to the public last 2014. The reviewers used to be exclusively given to our students who enroll in our review classes. Currently, our reviewers are exclusively available at our official website and Facebook page, partner book shop (Books/Reading) and at our Katipunan Branch.
