Tutoring vs Brain Training

Tutoring vs Brain Training – What’s the Difference?

Tutoring delivers information. Brain training improves brain performance. The majority of learning struggles do not occur because information was presented poorly and needs to be re-taught. In fact, studies show that 80% of all learning struggles occur as a result of weak cognitive skills. Weak cognitive skills make learning difficult regardless of how many times that information is taught or re-taught. This is why, if a student struggled to grasp and process the information the first time it was taught, simply re-teaching that information again using a tutor is not a permanent solution. In other words, while tutoring may get a child through a project or class, if weak cognitive skills aren’t strengthened, learning will continue to be a struggle.


Tutoring vs Brain Training – Brain Training Addresses the Cause of Learning Struggles

At BrainRx, we identify the weak cognitive skills causing the struggle, and then we target and strengthen those skills. Stronger brain skills make grasping and processing information easier than before and often eliminate the need for tutoring.
