Does your child need brain training or tutoring? What’s the difference? Do you know? Take this short quiz, and see if you can tell the difference. Get a piece of paper, read through the two scenarios in each question, and write down which story is like brain training and which story is like tutoring.
Brain training or tutoring? Question #1
a.) An 9-year old boy is going out for soccer. He gets on to the team, but he starts to have trouble aiming the ball in the direction he wants it to go when he kicks. His coach pulls him aside and shows him how to control the angle of his kick, and tells him to go home and practice it. The boy practices his kick, and improves.
b.) Another young boy wants to play soccer, and tries out for the team. He cannot run as fast as the other boys, and is badly uncoordinated, so he doesn’t make the team. The coach suggests some weight training and balance exercises, and tells the boy that if he does those things faithfully, and runs every day, he will have a better chance to make the team next time. The next year, the boy comes back stronger and faster, and makes the team.
