BrainTrain is a Private Remedial School in Quarry road, owned by Jenni Underwood. Sharri Robb works alongside Jenni, each of these nurturing ladies share a strong love for working with children. Jenni has a natural leaning to access different learning styles, developing study skills, teaching in harmony with either left or right brain dominance and she enjoys using colour in her teaching. Sharri has a special interest in dyslexia. Brain Train has in five years grown to a morning school with 15 full time pupils, ranging from primary level to high school. These ladies also visit schools in the afternoons to facilitate supportive sessions. In an average week they tutor about 70 children.
Jenni's ideal is to provide a more comfortable option for children who may be sensitive and unable to adjust to the traditional school system. Children will encounter nature, art, music and dance on this alternate path to matriculation. They will be able to grow and achieve in a learning space which is accepting and accommodating of their varying requirements. Brain Train is a bright and yet gentle environment.
Jenni Underwood is a qualified teacher with a Post Graduate Remedial Education qualification. She has taught all ages at Government and Private Schools and at Tertiary level, with more than 20 years of experience. Jenni believes that learning can only happen once a child is content on a physical, emotional and psychological level. She therefore always works in conjunction with Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, Doctors, Homeopaths, Schools, Parents and other alternate therapies that do work. Added to the years of traditional experience Jenni also has three grown sons who have taught her a lot about how children grow, develop and mature.
Happy children will more readily perform at their full capacity. If you would like to ensure your child is in the learning arena best matched to his or her whole being, you are welcome to book a consultation with Jenni. Click here for more details.
