Focus on Long-Term Memory with Our Brain Training Programs

Certain people often admit that they have a hard time remembering things, no matter how many times they read or see something. While someone may have an easy time recalling short-term memories, pulling something from their long-term memory can sometimes be a challenge. At LearningRx, our brain training programs focus on seven cognitive skills, one of which is long-term memory. Unlike short-term memory, which relies primarily on acoustic and visual information, long-term memory encodes information through meaning and association, grouping neurons into a network that retains that information. Short-term memory is converted to long-term through a process known as memory consolidation.

When you attempt to recall a long-term memory, the neurons communicate through their synapses to bring the information to mind. When you open a LearningRx franchise, you can provide people with the tools necessary to make their long-term memory work better. It’s important to keep those synaptic connections strengthened, since “forgetting” is often due to the weakening of neural connections in the brain, or when a new neural network is activated and interferes with the old one.

There is still a lot to be understood about long-term memory and how it works, and it’s possible that you could “know” an indefinite number of things. Our brain training programs are designed to help a person make the most of their long-term memory, so if this is something that interests you, contact us right away to learn how you can open a franchise in your community. We look forward to hearing from you!

Things To Consider Before Investing In An Education Franchise

If you’ve been dreaming of being your own boss, it may be wise to consider investing in a franchise before jumping the gun and opening your own business – especially if you’re looking to invest in today’s youth. The Learning Rx offers education franchise opportunities to those looking to be their own boss while making not only an investment in their future, but one in society’s future, as well.

While the idea of investing in a franchise may seem very appealing, there are a few things you should know first. Today we’re going to begin out first of three articles in a series discussing what you need to consider before jumping headfirst into a franchise investment.

  • Whenever you’re investing money into a business model or franchise, it’s always important to consider the franchise model itself. Often considered to be one of the greatest business models ever created, the franchise model has allowed thousands – if not millions – of people all over the world who would have never owned a business before to do just that.
  • Whether you’re investing in a franchise or non-franchise, it always comes with some level of risk. While there isn’t really a way to totally mitigate that risk, you can lower it. What you need to do is make sure that you’re totally ready to write a check and invest in a franchise model. A great way to do this is to look at some of the other major monetary decisions you’ve made in your life and how you were able to handle the risk that came with those decisions.
  • While the idea of owning your own business and being able to call the shots sounds fun, if you’ve not had any formal or otherwise useful training in doing this, you could be setting yourself up for failure. Franchisees have the opportunity of being their own boss while also following a set of rules put in place to protect the business (and ultimately your investment). Before you commit to investing in a franchise, you should make sure you understand all of the rules and that they’re in place to maintain the consistency of the services, products, and the brand.

Effective Math Tutoring for Beginning and Advanced Levels

If you’re a teacher or school administrator, you’ve seen students of all kinds come through the halls. You’ve recognized the scholastic potential of all of them, and also noticed those that need a bit of extra time in the classroom. One subject that can really hamper a student’s academic progress is mathematics, and without the proper guidance and tutoring, a child may feel that they’ll never grasp those difficult math concepts. At LearningRx, we are more than just a tutoring franchise, and our Math program is designed to help students learn numerical fluency, number sense, and achieve overall success.

As a teacher that’s seen children struggle with math, you might be wondering what approaches could be more effective at teaching a student how to better understand numbers and mathematical theories. By building on the foundation of our ThinkRx program, our MathRx program focuses on logic and reasoning, calculation speed, and math-specific skills. Brain training teaches a student not how to remember multiplication tables, but instead how to develop the skills necessary to tackle both beginner and advanced math concepts. A student will understand how to build a strong foundation in math, learning the fundamentals and then building from there.

As a LearningRx franchisee, you will be providing students with the space and the programs to achieve more in math class and allow them to put those skills to use once they’re out of school. Instead of struggling to understand even the most basic math problems, they will be able to unlock the brainpower necessary to compute numbers quickly, logically solve a word problem, and grow in their appreciation of mathematics.

Enhanced Reading Comprehension Through Brain Training

Reading is something that thousands of people do each and every day, even if it’s just scanning the headlines on their latest internet news feed. For children, reading comprehension is a skill that will serve them for their entire life, and if they struggle with it, it’s very easy for frustration to set in and for the child to become discouraged. They may start disliking to read and their academic career can suffer, since reading is an integral part of every class and subject. With brain training programs through a LearningRx franchise, children can achieve enhanced reading comprehension and keep up with their schoolwork.

Traditional tutoring services offer reading improvement training, but unless the focus is the underlying cause of why a child is struggling, the improvement may be temporary. A child may read perfectly in a tutoring session, but in the classroom environment, where they’re reading out loud or having to follow along, they could still have trouble. By focusing on the cognitive issue that supports reading comprehension, LearningRx can help a student improve their reading level by nearly three years in approximately six months. Obviously, results will vary based on the individual student, but our brain training can give them the foundation they need to continually improve their reading skills.

We want to help students understand and appreciate what they read so that when they’re reading in school, they can fully comprehend the information, and when they’re reading for pleasure, their love for reading will grow. If you’re interested in helping the children in your community improve their reading skills, contact us today to learn more about our brain training programs and franchises.

Supplement Normal Schooling with LearningRx

We have all dealt with children that have come home from school and “learned nothing.” Many parents are frustrated by low test scores, bad homework grades, and low levels of comprehension that their child has displayed during school. Whether this is due to the child’s inability to understand core concepts or it is the fault of sub-par teaching, these children need help! While many parents send their children to a private tutor, they may need more help than that. Also, there are many locations within the US that have limited access to qualified tutors or other after school educational facilities. LearningRx can change this pattern!

LearningRx is so much more than a tutoring facility. This is an education franchise that focuses on improving a child’s brain! We are trying to help children excel in school by improving the neural pathways in their brain. The more connections that are made, the better off these children will be in the end! Parts of the brain may be underutilized which can cause learning difficulties, by stimulating these locations with advanced games, skills, and tasks, children (and adults) are finding that learning and comprehension become much easier.

Unfortunately there are under-served areas in the nation. This includes after school programs and other educational facilities. LearningRx is offering their education franchise for purchase across the country. Now concerned parties can create the best learning environment for children. While LearningRx will not take the place of regular schooling it will sure do wonders as a supplemental program! Stop in, learn more, and begin to help the under-served children within your area!

Conventional Tutoring Does Not Always Work

When a child fails to reach their academic goals the first thought that parent have is to hire a tutor to help. As parents we hate to see our children struggle with school so we believe that the tutor is the perfect solution. Unfortunately, conventional tutoring methods do not always work. Some children may lack the necessary mental skills to grasp certain concepts. This is not to say that a child is in anyway “different” it just means that their ability to learn is not fully formed. This is where brain training programs from LearningRx can help your child excel.

Conventional tutoring consists of individuals that will help teach children specific subject skills that they will need to complete their homework. Tutors can help clarify abstract ideas as well as teach the student better study habits. A tutor will work individually with your child but will not be able to help their brains retain information. Unfortunately this means that once the test has been completed or the semester has ended, the student may not remember his or her lessons. When the next school year rolls around the same road blocks will pop back into play. This is where brain training programs will differ from conventional tutoring.

Brain training programs from LearningRx will help a child discover their weak areas of cognition, and will work to improve brain function! When the problem areas have been identified, different learning and training techniques will focus on strengthening the underlying neural connections within the brain. When the children complete these brain training programs they are actually generating new connections within their brains that will increase the once weak mental skills! This is why brain training programs are more advanced than conventional tutoring methods!

Summer is the Perfect Time to Open an Education Franchise

Now that June is here, schools at all levels have most likely released for the summer. With another school year in the books, many students are looking forward to some time off from studies, but some may be preparing for summer school or tutoring to help them prepare or catch up before the next semester starts in the fall. At LearningRx, we believe in a different kind of tutoring and our brain training programs have created an ideal educational franchise that helps students learn and problem-solve more powerfully.

By focusing on cognitive skill improvement, our brain training does more than just help a student better understand a certain subject or a set curriculum. A student may have trouble in the classroom because they don’t know how to access a certain part of their brain when they need it, such as problem-solving during math or processing speed during writing. As a franchise owner, you can give students access to powerful programs that teach them how to unlock and access more brainpower. By improving cognitive skill efficiency, students will be able to process things more quickly, instead of just retaining knowledge for a test.

If you’re interested in our education franchise opportunities, please contact us today. Summer is the perfect time to open a LearningRx location in your town, as parents and students search for a way to improve not only learning ability, but to unlock brainpower. We would love to speak to you about getting you started with your own franchise, and will provide all the support you need to begin.

Strengthen Your Community’s Brainpower

Most tutoring franchises will focus on academic learning and can help students succeed at a certain subject or learn how to focus better at school. While this can be effective, the LearningRx team believes in helping people strengthen their brainpower and improve cognitive function. Our brain training programs and franchise opportunities give you the ability to establish a location in your city and strengthen your community’s brainpower, improving not only academic achievement, but helping people think and learn in better and more productive ways.

One of our primary programs is ThinkRx, which is an intense system of drills and exercises that are performed in a one-on-one setting to improve cognitive learning skills. The facilitator will take an assessment of the student’s current cognitive abilities, and ThinkRx will help develop the abilities that are perhaps weaker or less developed. By not tying the program to an academic curriculum, we can help avoid the frustrations normally associated with classroom learning, and make cognitive improvement a positive experience. The exercises build upon one another, helping the student move forward in a logical manner, understanding how their brain is working and how they can make it work better.

If you’re interested in our brain train programs and want to know how you can open a franchise in your community, please feel free to contact us today. We love meeting new people that have a passion for improving brainpower, and want to know how they can help students access more of their brain and improve their cognitive abilities.

We’re More Than Just a Tutoring Franchise

At LearningRx, our brain training programs are designed to help people of all ages unlock further cognitive potential, and our franchise opportunities are intended to provide more than just a tutoring franchise for a town or city. By focusing on the seven cognitive skills – Attention, Working Memory, Executive Function, Logic and Reasoning, Visual Processing, Auditory Processing, and Long Term Memory – we can help people do more than just retain information; we can help them be better learners and possess stronger brainpower.

We’ve found that when setting up a new franchise, it’s best to look at cities with a population of 150,000 or above. This provides you, the franchisee, with the market that you need and the potential for growth once you begin to attract students. With a population of 150,000 and above, the potential for school-aged and college-aged learners increases, and you’ll be able to focus on signing them up for brain training curriculum. You’ll of course receive the full support of LearningRx in marketing and expanding your franchise’s influence. We’ll also make sure that there isn’t another one of our franchises in close proximity to you, so you’re not encroaching on an already-established territory.

When we began LearningRx, we knew that the growth potential was limitless. Brain training and cognitive learning is an ever-expanding industry, and we set out to be more than just a tutoring franchise – we want to help people unlock amazing learning potential. When you set up a franchise in your area, you’ll see people do amazing things, and you’ll have the opportunity to learn some things yourself.

Brain Plasticity and Brain Training Programs

At LearningRx, we often hear the question, “What is brain plasticity?” There have been several theories over the centuries at how the brain functions, and only with modern science and anatomy have we found how the brain stores and processes information. Brain plasticity is the process by which the brain reorganizes neural pathways when new information is learned and stored. Our brain training programs and education franchises are designed to maximize that plasticity and help you move from learning information to successfully storing and retaining knowledge.

At birth, humans have about 2,500 synapses in their brain, which transmit information across neurons. By the age of three, that number is up to approximately 15,000. As we age, weaker synapses are “pruned” and neurons are allowed to die. By continually learning, as well as training your brain how to learn more effectively, you can keep those synapses strong and those neurons alive, promoting plasticity and improving your brainpower. Synaptic pruning will happen regardless of how much you read or take in, and it is an important part of focusing your brainpower. Neurons that contain unimportant information can be allowed to die, while strong connections will grow even stronger.

LearningRx is dedicated to promoting brain plasticity, and through our brain training programs and franchises, we can help people unlock the unknown potential of that plasticity. If you’re interested in opening a franchise location in your city, or you’d just like more information on our research and mission, please feel free to contact us at 719-955-6708 or send us a message online.
