Learning to read, solve math problems, or master any school subject relies on one thing: the brain. With this in mind, the coaches at Learning Solutions eschew traditional tutoring methods that focus on one subject at a time. Instead, they use brain-training games and other mind exercises designed to hone a child's overall cognitive skills. The coaches work with students of all abilities, including gifted children. They also specialize in helping those with ADHD, autism, and dyslexia. LearningRx's team also works with adults and seniors.
Whether parents' goals for their children include academic improvement or advanced extracurricular enrichment, instructors watch over students as they work through difficult math and reading exercises. With expert guidance, young learners build the confidence they need to perform well in school and develop self-sufficiency with homework. The instructors also encourage students to work at their own pace, creating at-home study guides and monitoring their progress toward certain benchmarks agreed upon in meetings with parents.
WHIZard Academy Academy has helped students better grasp concepts in math and English for the past 25 years. The academy tailors its programs to each individual's abilities, ensuring that students can learn at their own pace. Kindergartners up to high school seniors can benefit from programs in math, reading, writing, and foreign languages. They also have skilled tutors teaching their customized SAT and ACT prep classes, which can help students' chances when applying to college.
The education gurus at Minds Ahead Academy specialize in developing and running four innovative teaching programs for children, while focusing on what they term "whole brain development." One of their main courses is BrainOBrain, which relies on two main learning models to coax kids through academic and personality development. Its advanced abacus and neuro-lingustic programs both introduce neuron-testing exercises aimed at improving children's skills in math, spelling, and other academics in a social setting. Alternatively, LanguageMinds and MindsBee courses, helmed by experienced teachers, guide children through interactive sessions in writing and reading comprehension. The TutorMinds program supplements its general academic skill-focused base with test preparation.
The team of advisers at Boxwood Learning Center helps middle and high school students develop the necessary skills to succeed professionally and academically. Some of the service they provide include tutoring, SAT preparation, life skills workshops, and counseling sessions for college bound students.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our classes are up to date with the most recent changes to the high school math curriculum. We simply math by explaining concepts in ways that are easy to understand. Plus, classes are limited to 8 students, so students will be able to ask questions and get help.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We provide all handouts in class. Students only need to bring a notebook and calculator to class.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Math always made sense to me and I enjoyed explaining it to friends and family. I saw there was a need for quality and affordable tutoring in a small class setting, so I made the change from engineering to tutoring.
What do you love most about your job?
The best part about the job is hearing a student say, "Wow, now it makes sense."
