Baird Johnson Owner
I’m Baird Johnson, Executive Director and owner of the LearningRx Center in Eden Prairie. I am so honored to be able to help families in Eden Prairie, Minnetonka, Edina, Chanhassen, Chaska and the whole southwest metro area live better lives through cognitive training. I came to be involved with LearningRx more than 12 years ago as a solution to my oldest daughter’s reading difficulties. We had tried multiple tutoring and special education services for her and nothing worked until we found a solution in LearningRx that addressed her underlying cognitive weaknesses. Since that time I have worked with thousands of individuals who struggled with learning and cognition. The most rewarding thing for me is when I hear back from students and parents years later who tell me of the great success that they have gone on to achieve, and they credit LearningRx brain training with giving them the skills and confidence that they never would have had otherwise.
Nate Maus Director of Training
I’m Nate Maus, the Director of Training for LearningRx of Eden Prairie along with our locations in Maple Grove and Shoreview. I studied Psychology at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and am a Board Certified Cognitive Specialist. I was initially drawn to LearningRx in 2008 as a way to apply the academic knowledge I received from my studies in cognitive psychology to help individuals directly. In the past, I took great joy in working with clients personally as a cognitive trainer and now focus my time as the Director of Training on finding and training amazing and highly skilled individuals to work as cognitive trainers. I love seeing the amazing growth our trainers deliver daily. I have a passion for helping people and oversee all our programs to ensure every student receives the best cognitive training possible.
