Just Say Thank You

When someone gives you advice and say something you already know, don't say; "I knew that already", just say "Thank you!" Emotional intelligence and social skills are not about showing off your knowledge but to show off your gratitude, how much you appreciate the other person and your mutual relationship. Be thankful for their good intention to teach you something useful and valuable. Bite your tongue and just say thank you.
