Our Principles

Pomodoro

The Pomodoro technique is a powerful tool used by successful students worldwide to maximize their natural focus. At Exam Bytes, we use this technique to help children achieve their academic goals. Since kids have a shorter attention span than adults, we use short “breaks” between explanations to ask them questions. This helps keep them attentive and engaged throughout the lesson, resulting in better retention and understanding.

Spaced Repetition

The technique we use for efficient memorization and practice of skills is based on a centuries-old psychological approach. Instead of attempting to memorize by cramming, we space out each review to help children learn more efficiently. By recalling information from earlier in the lesson, we ensure that there are multiple points of mental contact between the topic and the student, making it easier to remember. This approach has proven to be very successful in helping students constantly test and absorb information during their tutoring sessions.

Pareto Principle

Also known as the 80:20 rule, it stipulates that 20% of causes are responsible for 80% of outcomes. We apply this principle to our tutoring approach by concentrating our efforts on making small but effective changes to improve our pupils’ comprehension by as much as 80%. We also encourage our pupils to focus their maximum effort on the 20% of questions that contribute to 80% of their academic success, which helps prevent burnout and maximizes their learning outcomes.

Montessori

The Montessori method, developed by Italian physician Maria Montessori and implemented in schools globally, emphasizes independence and trust. At our tutoring center, we embrace this philosophy by prioritizing our students’ needs. We create a safe and supportive environment where making mistakes is encouraged, and students feel comfortable asking questions and seeking clarification. By trusting our students and putting their needs first, we foster a collaborative and effective learning experience.

Problem Based Learning

At our tutoring service, we prioritize our students’ needs by adopting a student-centered approach to teaching. We believe in hands-on learning, which is why we provide our students with practical examples to solve throughout every lesson. By integrating problem-solving early into our curriculum, we ensure that our students are well-prepared and confident when faced with exam questions.

Blurt Method

The Blurt Method is a technique that encourages students to explain a concept or solve a problem out loud. This technique helps to reinforce the material in their memory and also allows tutors to check for understanding. We believe in the importance of active learning and encourage our students to participate in their own learning process. As Albert Einstein once said,

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
