Need a new approach to your child’s learning? Code Word Brain goes above, beyond & outside of the box! Struggling & beginning primary school kids can improve reading, memory, attention, maths, anxiety, impulsivity & even sleep!
Playful, brain-based learning & 1:1 online tutoring. Since 2013.
Why brain-based tutoring? ❤️
Parents who value life-long learning know that mental exercise positively enhances the brain at any age. Regular ‘brain-time’ at home readies your child to listen, learn, think & focus at school
— for better outcomes in English, maths, sport & the playground!
I offer 1:1 online tutoring, or a brain plasticity & tutoring package that targets the underlying causes of language & reading difficulty so your child can make maximum progress in the shortest time.
Choose from weekly, fortnightly or monthly online tutoring options.
With 45 scaffolded exercises & 100’s of books online, Code Word Brain offers fun new ways to build phonemic awareness, reading fluency, spelling, grammar, punctuation, comprehension & more.
1:1 tutoring offers Sounds-Write phonics & decodable readers!
Sounds-Write reduces cognitive overload & plasticity exercises simultaneously develop your child’s working memory, attention, processing & sequencing skills — all key to successful learning!
Brainpower ACTIVATED | Achievement CELEBRATED
Nasal breathing improves intelligence, sleep & brain oxygen.
Around 40% of kids with sleep disorders develop ADHD, ADD, or learning difficulty. Mouth-breathing is a major culprit! I train kids to nasal breathe for better sleep, reading, learning & sports.
As a certified Brain Health Professional, I can also help your child:
1: Learn to passionately care about their brain.
2: Identify and avoid things that hurt it.
3: Regularly engage in habits, like Code Word Brain, that boost it.
Online tutoring means you can choose the times that suit you best — at home, even on holiday! For ongoing practice, add brain plasticity exercises 3- to 5-days a week, 30- to 35-minutes a day.
When the brain works better, school days go better!
Scientific advances in the mid-90s confirmed great news… the brain can change!
By doing the right things you can physically make your brain work better & even grow new neurons! It’s called brain plasticity & it can hasten learning but there’s a flipside.
It’s not only head injuries that can hurt your brain & limit success, inapt habits can, too.
A sedentary lifestyle, frequent inattention & impulsiveness link to negative plasticity. Less stimulation equals fewer brain connections, less brain reserve & inhibited learning.
Repeated practice creates positive plasticity. Brain pathways connect & increase, like grooves in an old-fashioned record! The more you practice, the stronger your grooves!
At Code Word Brain, I help kids find their learning groove faster with neuroscientific (game-like) plasticity training & 1:1 tutoring, specifically formulated to bless the brain!
