AHEAD Tutorial & Review Center, one of the best in the tutorial industry, gets a new home in Makati City with the opening of its 16th branch along Arnaiz Avenue. Founded in 1995 by Rossana Llenado, AHEAD Tutorial & Review Center is the only learning organization to offer test-based reviews for the college entrance exams of the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, and De La Salle University. Because of such a pioneering innovation, AHEAD and Llenado quickly garnered prestigious awards from institutions such as the University of the Philippines, Philippine Marketing Association, and the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC).
“Customers generally invest their time and money on trusted brands,” says Ramon Borja, AHEAD Makati franchisee, who didn’t think twice about partnering with AHEAD. “When it comes to after-school education services, AHEAD is a trusted brand with high top-of-mind awareness in the market.”
With the newest branch addition, Borja promises to provide customers with the best value in educational services that’s both fun and relevant. “We commit to be a meaningful partner in building your children’s future,” he adds.
Specifically designed to create a warm, comfortable environment conducive for learning, Borja says, “It will cater to some major schools in the vicinity.” This includes Assumption, Colegio de San Agustin, Don Bosco Makati, Colegio de Sta. Rosa, and St. Paul’s Makati. Students whose schools or residences are within 20 minutes from the site, he adds, will find the center convenient.
Borja was exposed to tutoring during his Ateneo High School days; tutoring was part of the Tulong Dunong program for the less fortunate students in Marikina. He was also a part-time teacher at the Entrepreneurship School of Asia, and a very hands-on parent in monitoring his children’s academic progress. “All these life experiences made me realize the value of education as a potential game-changer,” shares this father of two.
Quoting his idol, the legendary investor Warren Buffet, Borja believes: “The best investment you can make is an investment in yourself. When you learn, you’ll earn.”
AHEAD Makati branch will offer the same services as other AHEAD branches. Its high-quality tutoring program will help students learn more after school. Students won’t be afraid to ask questions and clarify key points as they will be receiving personal attention from their tutors. Teachers can adjust their tutoring pace, depending on the progress and skill level of the student. Active learners can use AHEAD’s one-on-one tutoring sessions not only to focus on difficult subjects, but to help them advance and get ahead in class. AHEAD Makati branch will also prepare students for their college entrance exams through AHEAD’s test-based college entrance test (CET) review programs for UP, Ateneo, and De La Salle.
