Q: How does Brain Academy tutoring program differ from any other tutoring
A:
 We put all our effort to help each student succeed in school in this very competitive world despite
learning problems, poor motivation to learn, weak cognitive skills, attention deficit, learning disability, or poor
organization. Brain Academy helps students boost their grades in any subject , raise scores on tests, and
improve learning and cognitive skills, so that they also excel in all other subjects in the future. Our unique
program was developed by Dr. Rimma Danov, PhD, a neuropsychologist,  specializing in examining
cognitive skills. In the past several years Dr. Danov has been conducting neuropsychological assessments
of children and adults who have poor learning skills, memory, attention, concentration, organization,
processing, and reasoning, which greatly undermined their academic and professional performance. Some
students with learning problems suffer from
 Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), ADHD, learning disability (LD),
brain injury (TBI) and concussion, pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), various developmental delays
due to
premature birth, depression, anxiety, or simply did not develop good test-taking skills and effective
learning skills. Based on her extensive experience and knowledge of how the brain works, what causes
specific learning problems, and how cognitive problems can be remediated, she has developed a program
that focuses not only on regular help with academic subjects (i.e., math, algebra, geometry, calculus,
reading, writing, biology, chemistry, science, history, SAT test-prep, GRE test-prep, state-wide test-prep, etc),
but also improves cognitive skills (i.e., attention, organization, thinking, reasoning, information processing,
and memory retention skills), as well as addresses test anxiety, low motivation to learn, and low self-
esteem. Ask about our bilingual services.

Q: Are tutoring sessions performed one-on-one or in groups?

A:
We strongly believe that individual, private setting provides the best condition for optimal learning,
especially for students who have trouble focusing, reasoning, and absorbing new information. We do not
group students together for just another after-school class (think- distraction, socializing, wasted time while
other students in the group are being attended to....). Our tutors work very closely with each individual
student, considering his/her specific educational needs, cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and
academic goals.

Q: Why “Brain Academy”?

A:
The name “Brain Academy” was born out of the very core mission of this tutoring program- helping
students improve their academic skills and, most importantly, improving their cognitive skills. We do not stop
when students improve their grades in any given subject. We go a step further to help the students succeed
in all future subjects, assignments and educational endeavors by enhancing their study skills, focus,
information processing and retention, and organizational and planning skills. Motivation to learn and
succeed, strong self-esteem, and a healthy dose of test anxiety are also very important key elements of
academic success. Our tutors always keep these factors in mind and address them continuously during a
tutoring process.

A:
Yes, we conduct bilingual testing and assessments in Spanish and Russian.
