Eagan Student Named 2nd Runner Up in LearningRx’s National Student of the Year Competition
Eme Dietz, from Eagan, Minnesota, has been named the 2nd Runner Up in LearningRx’s National Student of the Year competition celebrating the top brain training results across the country!
Eme’s parents, Christina and Kyle, initially enrolled her at LearningRx because she was struggling with math. They wanted to get to the root cause of her math struggles.
“At the end of second grade, Eme confided in us that she didn’t feel comfortable with her grade-level math,” explains Christina. “We investigated a few programs that had more of an emphasis on math but after speaking with some friends whose daughter went through LearningRx, we made an appointment to talk to Rich at the Eagan center.”
After speaking with Rich, Christina and Kyle saw the value in retraining the brain, rather than solely focusing solely on math. They enrolled Eme in a LearningRx personal brain training program.
“From day one, she was ready to put in the work,” says Eme’s trainer. “Her progress was slow and steady, but her confidence and ability to solve problems improved immensely. She was enjoying reading and writing more and feeling a lot more successful with her math scores, but then suddenly, something just clicked. With about five weeks left in the program, Eme’s ability to do math facts came bursting through. We were suddenly flying through Memory Hold! The pride on her face was priceless.”
According to Christina, Eme’s math scores have continuously improved and the confidence she has now is “indescribable.” “She learned to calm her frustrations, that making mistakes is normal and that quitting wasn’t an option,” says Christina. “We loved the consistency of the 1:1 student/trainer ratio. She’s acquired tools that she can take with her to middle school, high school and beyond. We couldn’t be happier with the investment in LearningRx.” Eme’s dream is to be an astronaut. With her newly sharpened brain skills and confidence, we know she can do it!
If your child struggles grasping math word problems, computation or overall comprehension, don’t settle for tutoring which simply addresses the symptoms. Get to the root cause with LearningRx!
