Q & A

How do cognitive skills impact learning in class and at home?

When we learn, incoming information is grasped and processed through seven core brain skills. These skills work together to move information into the stored knowledge we need to succeed in school, work, and life. 

Can weak cognitive skills be outgrown?

Typically, weak cognitive skills do not get stronger simply with age, which is why children who struggle often grow into adults that struggle. And while good schools, teachers,m and tutors may excel at delivering information, their roles are not designed to provide the kind of cognitive training that targets and strengthens weak skills.

How do I know if my child needs tutoring or brain training?

When you have to constantly repeat a second time for your child to understand what you are asking; that's when you know! When your child is struggling to grasp the information even for the second time, hiring a tutor to redeliver the information missed, will not solve the problem. 

Brain training will change your child's ability to grasp and process information the first time is presented.
