Welcome to Syllogism Education Institute
The modern abacus comes from Japan, where it has had 500 years of history: we are the only authentic Japanese abacus school in the UAE.
Our brand has over 47 years of experience.
As a method, we have exclusively taught abacus/mental arithmetic for 45 years (other methods will include abacus as part of their curriculum, so they are not able to go very deep into it, we are experts).
Mr. Rodrigo holds an MPhil in Mathematics Education from the University of Cambridge, UK, where he specialised in the study of the mental representations of number in abacus-trained children and won a best dissertation award from the Faculty of Education.
Not trainers or businessmen: we teach primarily because it’s our vocation; we love both our subject, and our students, as individuals. The result is that we put education, as our priority. So we do not simply train for skill, but at the same time also cultivate logic, manners and attitude.
We teach according to each child’s ability and level of understanding so each student advances at his own pace; we have both introductory and reinforcing teaching materials for each level.
We design the timings to optimise learning (each class lasts up to an hour) and you can choose between 1 and 3 one-hour slots per week, Saturday to Thursday mornings or afternoons.
Mr. Rodrigo has experience teaching abacus in English, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish, speaks eight languages, and has lived in seven different countries. You don’t need to learn Japanese and live in Japan to learn from the masters! We have done that for you so you can learn in Dubai!
Several years of experience teaching abacus and maths in Japan, China, UK and UAE
