BrainFit Studio: Developing the Traits of Top Class PerformersKids who are deemed inattentive or careless may just be lacking certain skills. With proper training, they could do well in class.
What do we know about the success secret of top performers in class?
For one, we know they pick up the lessons faster and they remember them more. Outside of the class setting, top performers in arts or sports also have above-average abilities on attention to detail, balance and coordination, and speed, among many other traits. These traits are what spell the difference between average and the best!
One class, many minds
In a class where there environment is the same, the teacher is the same – why do some do very well while others don’t? There are several bright, lively children who seem unable to focus in school and are turning in unsatisfactory grades. We also know kids who seem to excel in one subject, say English, but are unable to perform well in others, like Math. Some children “switch off” or “day-dream” in class when a teacher is giving verbal instructions.
And as any concerned and loving parent or teacher would, we want the best for our kids and so we enroll them in several after-school tuition/ enrichment courses. Fact is, these do help in some cases, but at other times – it’s still the same.
10 hours of “work” during school days
In the Philippines, children start the day roughly at 6am to get ready for school. School ends between 2 and 4pm and after that – they still have to go to tutor. That’s easily 10 hours of “work” during school days. So, who says “children don’t get stressed”?
A life-changing experience
At BrainFit Studio, children work on different exercises within the same hour – even those in the same class - as they focus on meeting their own learning needs, at their own pace.
And it makes complete sense.
“Each individual has a unique brain profile,” according to Cheryl Chia, Singapore-based clinical physiotherapist and founder of BrainFit Studio. “We assess each brain’s strengths and weakness with a CognitiveMAP™, an evaluation tool that determines which of your child’s 5 Brain Pillars need enhancement.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW1 of 2 NEXT
