When you think of tutoring you are probably thinking of “academic tutoring.” Academic tutoring is teaching, often done by teachers as a part-time job. Your child already receives lots of teaching at school and you probably help with homework. Is more “teaching” the solution to the learning problems?

Academic tutoring is great when the student is struggling with a very specific thing. We frequently receive inquiries from high school students looking for help with Grade 10, 11, or 12 math. Hey, Grade 10 math is tough and I can understand the need for some help now and again.
It’s a completely different story when kids in elementary school have to go to extensive tutoring just to keep up with their daily classwork. If they are not able to learn the material in class and with a bit of homework in elementary grades, what is high school going to look like? Tutoring is not the solutions… brain fitness is.
Brain training, or brain fitness programs, strengthen the thinking skills that are causing the problems.
