Tutoring VS Brain Training

Tutoring VS Brain Training

Parents often face a tough decision: should they opt for tutoring or brain training for their child? Understanding the distinctions between the two can lead to the right choice. Here are key factors to consider:

Three Unique Aspects of Brain Training:

Addressing the Root Cause:

At The Brain Workshop, we focus on strengthening weak cognitive skills identified as the primary culprits behind learning and reading difficulties. Research suggests that 8 out of 10 students struggle in school due to these weak cognitive skills.

Transferable Gains:

Unlike tutoring, which often targets specific subjects or topics, brain training at The Brain Workshop yields long-lasting benefits across all areas of learning. Investing in brain training now can enhance overall cognitive performance for years to come.

Brain Exercises:

Recent studies underscore the capacity of intensive mental exercises to induce positive changes in brain function. Our brain training programs offer rigorous cognitive workouts tailored to maximize results.

When to Choose Tutoring:

Tutoring is an ideal solution when:

  • Your child has missed classes due to illness, vacation, or other disruptions.
  • A temporary obstacle, such as a substitute teacher or construction noise, has affected classroom learning.
  • Your child requires re-teaching of specific information not grasped initially.

When to Opt for Brain Training:

Brain training may be the best option when:

  • Your child has received tutoring for persistently challenging subjects without significant improvement.
  • Difficulties extend across multiple subjects or persist despite adequate instruction.
  • Your child struggles with foundational skills like reading or homework completion.
  • There’s a need to address deeper cognitive challenges affecting overall academic performance.

Decision-Making Checklist:

Consider the following checklist to determine the most suitable intervention:

List A: Consider Tutoring if...

  • Your child’s struggles stem from temporary disruptions in learning.
  • Challenges are confined to specific subjects or instances of poor instruction.
  • Your child responds well to explanations upon re-teaching.

List B: Consider Brain Training if...

  • Persistent academic challenges persist despite tutoring interventions.
  • Difficulties span across multiple subjects or persist over time.
  • Your child exhibits signs of underlying cognitive weaknesses.
  • Achieving good grades requires disproportionately high effort and time.
  • Your child expresses feelings of inadequacy or struggles with self-esteem related to academic performance.

Make an Informed Choice:

Based on your checklist responses:

  • If List A aligns more with your child’s situation, tutoring may be the appropriate solution.
  • If List B resonates more, brain training at The Brain Workshop could offer transformative benefits regardless of prior tutoring experiences.
