Tutoring centers for kids
NEWARK, N.J. — Senator Cory Booker was educated at Stanford, Oxford and Yale, but he likes to say he got his real education at Brick Towers, the dilapidated and dangerous housing project in inner-city Newark where he spent eight years as a tenant—not by necessity, but by choice. Living in a 16th-floor apartment that often lacked heat, hot water and elevator service, among poor neighbors trapped on the slum side of the American Dream, this celebrated black prodigy from a comfortable white suburb took an extended tutorial in urban adversity. He got a firsthand introduction to the policy issues that drove his agenda as a city councilor, mayor and New Jersey senator, and will now drive his newly announced presidential campaign. Brick Towers is gone now, but on a chilly gray morning in January, Booker was back at the intersection it loomed over for decades, riffing on the difference between thinking about policy and experiencing it up close. He noted that his former neighbor … [Read more...] about Is Cory Booker for Real?

ByTiffanie Wen Sept. 7, 2018 “O.K., what are you supposed to know?” Dad would ask the night before my midterm. Dad, an immigrant from China who has a Ph.D. from Berkeley in electrical engineering and worked for a space optics company in Silicon Valley, would take notes silently as I spoke. Sometimes I could rattle off concepts from the syllabus — linear equations and inequalities, graphing lines and slope, quadratics and polynomials. Other times I listed specific chapters (“he covered everything from seven through 12”), the contents of which the rest of my class had spent the previous months learning. Dad would then shoo me from the room for a few minutes … [Read more...] about In Math Cram Sessions, Solving for Why
Oralander Brand-Williams The Detroit News Published 10:59 p.m. UTC Aug 27, 2018 To many people, London Muldrow is a walking miracle. The 4-year-old bounces around and talks like any typical youngster, even though a bullet is lodged in the left side of her brain. The bullet is a sad reminder of being shot in the head four months ago outside a Detroit gas station as her mother, Laurice Henderson, watched in horror. The girl and her mother got caught in the crossfire when an argument between two men erupted into gunfire at the gas station on Livernois near Puritan. The child was sitting in the car when a bullet tore through the windshield and hit the child, who was in the back seat. A suspect in the shooting, Exel Taylor, pleaded guilty Friday in connection with the incident. The hours following the shooting were some of the most painful Henderson said she has ever experienced. The child was transported to the hospital by police. For … [Read more...] about Girl preps for school with bullet lodged in brain
Will Barrett, 15, was struggling on the baseball team and in the classroom last spring at Christian Central Academy when he tried an unfamiliar therapy designed to retrain the brain through sound waves. Olivia Greiner and her parents decided Olivia should give it a try, too, as part of the steps they’ve taken to help the 10-year-old from Lancaster address mood and non-verbal learning challenges. Will, Olivia and their families can’t explain in detail how sessions work at the Kinesthetic Listening Center of Western New York – but the results speak for themselves. Anxiety gripped Will before sporting events and tests. Within a few weeks, kinesthetic listening boosted his performance on the ballfield and golf course. His grades improved dramatically. He passed all three Regents tests he took, including pulling an 87 on the year-end Spanish exam. "It's trained my mind to calm itself down," he said. Olivia has struggled with fine motor skills and in social situations with … [Read more...] about Kids with learning challenges reach milestones with ‘kinesthetic listening’
