Brainspring Learning Centers helps students of all ages and skill levels become masters of learning with an effective, fun, multisensory approach. We work with students one-on-one through our centers across Michigan.
To effectively facilitate our program, every tutor is trained and required to pursue ongoing professional development. Many have advanced degrees in education and years of classroom experience and all have an understanding of, and sensitivity to, the frustration many learners experience. To foster trust, confidence and a safe environment, every student teams up exclusively with the same tutor.
All children deserve to reach their full potential and become independent learners. That’s why we assess each student and develop a curriculum based on his or her specific needs. We continue to reassess their needs and adjust our strategies so they can move forward, building mastery—and confidence.
In every lesson plan, we teach using the senses of touch, sight, hearing and movement. This approach ensures students use more than one pathway in the brain, strengthening and solidifying information. All children benefit from this approach—and for the child who struggles to learn, it can be the difference between success and failure.
The Orton-Gillingham approach helps tutors ensure students aren’t simply recognizing a pattern and applying it without understanding. When confusion of a previously taught rule is discovered, that rule is re-taught from the beginning. As students learn new material, they continue to review previously taught material until it becomes automatic. In short, we don’t move on until the student has mastered the current lesson.
When it comes to reading, children need to enjoy the process and need confidence to be successful learners. Rather than sitting and listening in a worksheet-based program, they’re engaged in an interactive approach that is proven and, best of all—fun!
