For Those Who Are Chronically Struggling, Brain Training is Better Than Tutoring
If your child struggles in one subject, once in a while, then tutoring is the right choice! Tutors re-teach information learned in school, and this is appropriate for kids who have missed school or struggle with a particular concept. However, many parents are understandably frustrated because of countless hours and endless dollars spent on tutoring for a child who continues to struggle.
Brain Training is not tutoring! Tutoring re-teaches information essentially treating the symptoms of the issue, but not the cause. At The Brain Gym, we identify and address the real reason for your child’s learning issues. We get far better results in less time than tutoring. In just a few months at The Brain Gym, underlying learning skills will improve significantly, allowing the student to be a confident and independent learner who thrives in our education-driven society. We give students and their parents the skills they need to be able to achieve academic success.
