Brain Training vs. Tutoring

Many parents wonder how the cost of a one-on-one brain training program differs from group tutoring or other educational programs. A LearningRx brain training program costs between $1800- $12,000,(assessments are $99-$299) which you’ll find is comparable to the cost of many other available programs and treatments. In fact, the cost is oftentimes less than traditional tutoring options. The pricing can vary based on the needs of the client, the length of the brain training program the student is enrolled in, the amount of parental involvement, and the region of the country in which the learning center is located (since costs of doing business vary from state to state).

Training with a Brain Trainer at LearningRx Is a Lot Like Training with a Personal Trainer at a Gym

One-on-one brain training is often compared to personal fitness training. Every client who works with a personal trainer receives a workout plan that is uniquely customized to meet his or her specific goals. The plan includes a recommended timeframe in which that goal should be accomplished. For example, the client who wants to gain muscle mass with the help of a personal trainer might be assigned a rigorous core muscle training program, conducted twice a week, for 15 weeks. On the other hand, the client who wants to lose 100 pounds with the help of a personal trainer might be assigned an intense cardio/aerobic exercise program, conducted four days a week, for 25 weeks. Two different clients with two different goals helped by two unique workout programs.

The brain training program assigned to one LearningRx client will not be the same program assigned to another, since no two people share an identical match-up of cognitive skills and weaknesses, or personal goals.

Once a client completes the one-hour Cognitive Skills Assessment with LearningRx (average discounted price is $199), a LearningRx director will be able to pinpoint the exact cause of the client’s cognitive challenges and design a custom brain training program uniquely suited to strengthen his or her weakest skills. By working one-on-one with a personal brain trainer, our clients will improve their cognitive skills through our more than 200 proprietary procedures. These game-like activities work on all seven underlying cognitive skills that make up our ability to learn, remember, pay attention, and perform.

LearningRx One-on-One Brain Training Is Unlike Group Training Programs

The fees for a one-on-one brain training program are similar to the costs you might incur for a year’s worth of tutoring, but what a brain training client experiences is VERY DIFFERENT than those students who are enrolled in tutoring and other group training programs. For example, LearningRx guarantees your child will have his or her own personal brain trainer throughout the entire program. No group training, no splitting time among a group of students, and no sitting idly by if a student in the group requires special attention. LearningRx trainers work with one, and only one, client at a time.

Following years of experience and research, LearningRx training is also compressed into a shorter timeframe than most educational programs. Tutoring, professional therapies, and other learning programs can often progress over the course of multiple years. LearningRx brain training lasts eight months or less, while delivering significant, measurable results.
