“My son was reading at a 2nd grade level as he was starting 4th grade… He is flourishing now and is reading at grade level. He has turned into a different kid completely.”
-Melissa, Mom of 4th Grader
It’s time to try something different.
On a Mission to Correct Learning Problems
Did you know that many struggles with thinking, learning, reading, memory, and attention are caused by weak cognitive skills? Traditional tutoring can make things worse. Traditional tutoring might address the problem without treating the symptoms –which makes things worse in more ways than just grades.
We find the underlying problem and correct it.
BRAIN WORKS TRAINING VS. TRADITIONAL TUTORING
Traditional tutoring mostly involves repeating information already taught, without addressing the underlying cause of one’s issues to retain and be able to replicate back or present. To help your student better remember, analyze, evaluate, and compare all previously acquired information they need fundamental cognitive skills training that focuses on underlying tasks in the learning process.
Why Brain Works?
Our tutors and assessments reveal the root cause of weak processing skills. Then utilize fundamental tasks to train and strengthen these learning skills until adequately developed. The process is life-changing, making learning easier & faster than it currently is for your student will undoubtedly increase their self esteem as well!
How Learning Works
The Learning Process aka "How Learning Works" is how we begin the process at Brian Works. There are three crucial pieces required to understand the basic mechanics of successful learning. One must have at least an average IQ, be taught well, and have the efficient brain processing skills.
Brain training is what Brain Works is best known for, and it is what we do best! Learn how brain training can improve the quality of life and learning capacity for almost any student. Brain training is connecting learning to efficient and confident performance in life and school.
This whole brain tutoring enhances learning, making learning easier & faster than ever and maximize the potential for your student or you!
How Can Brain Training Help You?
Brain training can help students of all ages! Brain Works brain training has the power to improve the quality of life and learning for almost any student regardless of their current level of learning or reading success.
What Exactly Is Brain Training?
Did you know that many struggles with thinking, learning, reading, memory, and attention are caused by weak cognitive skills?
Who Can Brain Works Help?
Students of all ages! At Brain Works, our brain training program targets the cognitive skills we need and use in everyday life, like: reading, memory, and attention
What Makes Brain Works Different?
By focusing directly on the root cause of learning struggle, which is an underlying weakness in cognitive skills; we help struggling students overcome life-long symptoms of learning disabilities.
EXERCISES RICH IN SENSORY STIMULATION
BrainWorks Tutors uses targeted exercises rich in sensory stimulation to engage specific weak neural-pathways which improves the learning experience for the student.
A student's ability to keep the eyes and mind on a task long enough to gather all pertinent information can have a profound effect on how the student learns.
A vital skill in retention. Cross-Patterning is the epicenter of most processing abilities and allows free open communication between the right and left brain hemispheres.
The skill of movement or sequence. Seeing “b” as “d,” or “p” as “q,” reading “was” as “saw,” writing from right to left and not knowing right from left are all symptoms of low directional skills.
One of the major visual skills needed to perform the act of reading is the ability of the eyes to track. During the act of reading, the eyes must accurately follow the lines of the text and move precisely from one word to the next.
The process of Figure Ground is the ability to focus on the “figure” or the important stimuli against a background of competing stimuli. The volume of stimuli coming to the brain at any given time is incredible.
The ability of the brain to respond within a given time frame. A weak motor match is often a problem for students who have difficulty with reading fluency.
Particularly important in the process of reading. The brain treats each word as a shape. Each word creates its own unique shape, which the student must immediately recognize.
This is the skill we use in determining where we are in relation to our physical and emotional world. Frequently, low positioning will cause an inaccurate perception of one’s relationship with others.
The skill of size is the skill we use in understanding volume. When perception is too large, tasks may be seen as overwhelming. When perception is too small, tasks may be left to the last minute when completion is impossible.
Do you have to walk them through homework step by step because they have poor focus? The Brain Works tutors help struggling students overcome life-long symptoms of learning disabilities.
A lack of processing skills makes a student avoid homework; it is difficult, frustrating, they feel disappointed with themselves, and they believe their parents are disappointed as well.
