FAQ

Q: What is Brain Education?
A: Brain Education (BE) is a method for creating health, happiness, optimal achievement, and peacefulness through better self-management of the brain. Brain Education combines classical Asian mind-body techniques with the latest findings from neuroscience. Our programs include physical, emotional and cognitive exercises, as well as postures, breathing techniques, guided imagery and games to improve focus, confidence, creativity and memory. Power Brain Education facilitates BE programs for students, teachers and parents in over 350 schools around the country and through our four Power Brain Training Centers.
Q: Brain Education vs. Tutoring?
A: Brain Education Training is fundamentally different from tutoring. Instead of targeting any specific subject area, BE is designed to build and strengthen an individual student’s capacity for focus, confidence, emotional regulation, and self-motivation, which forms the foundation of the child’s success not only in the classroom but also in all areas of his/her life. Tutoring, on the other hand, aims to re-teach academic material that a student did not comprehend the first time. Research on the effects of mindfulness-based brain training has been growing over the recent years and studies suggest that regular practice can produce lasting effects on executive functioning and emotion regulation. Systematic training of these functions may be particularly helpful in improving academic performance, while strengthening skills such as confidence, attention, and emotional control. Many of our exercises have a set of tools incorporated in them to help your child to be “in the moment,” meaning to be focused and attentive, and being able to learn and recall information better.
