Training NOT Tutoring
Research Proves That Only 10% of Learning Problems Are from Poor Instruction and 80% Are from Weak Cognitive Processing Skills
What Is the Purpose of Tutoring?
The purpose of tutoring is to help students help themselves or to assist or guide them to the point at which they become independent learners, thus no longer needing a tutor.
When is Tutoring Beneficial?
Tutoring works well for students who have missed classroom instructional time and therefore need to catch up to the rest of the class. Tutoring is effective for those who have efficient cognitive processing skills (auditory, visual, memory, processing speed, reasoning).
What’s the Difference Between Tutoring and Training?
Tutoring reteaches information that was taught during classroom instruction. It was designed to be a short-term process, not a necessity to get through school, homework, or maintain passing grades. Tutoring doesn’t not develop weak cognitive processing skills. Most are unaware that 80% of learning problems are caused by weak processing skills. Isn’t it time then to develop them?
Tutoring Is a Band-Aid Approach for Struggling Students
Have you or your child tried using tutors, only to fall back once the tutor is gone? Does your child have to work too hard or too long to make or keep good grades in school? Do you believe your child has high potential but can’t seem to unlock it? Is your child receiving special services from public school but still isn’t progressing? For children and adults with learning disabilities and ADHD, tutoring is often a temporary solution.
Brain Training Is a Long-Term Solution
Brain training improves cognitive processing skills so one can learn from classroom instruction and become an independent learner. Brain training does not teach academic content. It develops the mental skills to process, understand, and apply what has been taught. The evidence is accumulating that cognitive skills training (brain training) is effective and long-lasting. More and more new studies are continually conducted, proving that mental brain exercises improve learning performance. We’ve had many students come back in their later years to report that ADDvantages Learning was a turning point in their lives!
Will My Child Still Need a Tutor After ADDvantages Learning?
We have worked with hundreds to become independent learners who no longer needed tutoring after developing their cognitive processing skills.
Some students have missed so much foundational academic content from their inability to process it that they may need some tutoring until they can catch up. Tutoring is then effective for these students to catch up on needed concepts for further growth and learning.
