When it comes to right brain classes, many parents are always eager to see results in their children after attending right brain classes. To put things into perspective, let me first ask: when you send your child for music class, do you expect to hear Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony being played after half a year of music lessons? When you send your child for tennis lessons, do you expect that your child will be playing in tournaments after a couple of months? Likewise, when you send your child for right brain classes, you have to be patient for output.
In the meantime, testimonials from other parents and children can be a source of inspiration. If you have been reading this blog for a while, you have probably read Shichida and Heguru testimonials before. Now you can read the testimonials from TweedleWink. These testimonials are from the US because that is where the school originated. The local TweedleWink school has not been around long enough to generate the kind of testimonials I know most parents are expecting, however, the results so far have been promising. While we wait for a new generation of children to go through the local school, here are some TweedleWink testimonials from the US:
Mother of 3 children, Washington, USA
“My first daughter is ten years old. She is so loving and caring. No one would ever know that her reading and math abilities are high school level. She is like somebody who is practicing 1 Corinthians 13:4 : Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude… She is in the gifted children’s class… Our second daughter is seven years old. She is showing her great memory in her work. She can memorize poems, songs, forms of Taek Won Do easily… My third child is four. My mother says that he talks and behaves like an adult because he is emotionally so mature. He understands other people’s situations and feelings.”
Mother of 1, California, USA
“My parents are amazed at his ability to recognize obscure types of birds, add up sums troublesome for 10-year-olds… John has acquired is a tremendous love of active learning and self-direction using all types of learning styles and activities. He has such an intuition, passion and curiosity about life. I am constantly astonished by his knowing what I am thinking to the exact precise words and concepts.”
11-year-old student of the program, Montana, USA
“I have been using right brain education all of my life. It has helped me a lot in school and at home. I can scan a page of information and remember a lot of the facts that were displayed on the page. This form of learning is GREAT! Because I have been using right brain educational techniques since I was born I was reading at the age of two. I am very glad to have been exposed to this type of learning at a young age.
From Paulina (Caleb’s Mother)
Caleb is a 4.0 student in 6th grade at a college preparatory school.
- His speed reading, depending upon the material is: 360-480 wpm (Novels are faster, resource material is slower)
- At 2nd grade, he was reading at 9th grade level.
- He can mentally image projects from beginning to completion accurately enough to modify plans, in his mind, and start again until he has, what he thinks, is a working model.
- His memory is very strong, but I have not tested the digit span lately. Last year is was 250 sequential memory/40 images all-at-once (my goal is to make this a relaxed program and testing can interfere with that.)
From Caleb’s report card:
“Caleb’s abilities are well beyond his years. Is he a real sixth grade boy? I keep looking for wires and plugs, but can’t seem to find any!” -English instructor
Dr. Celeste Miller
Education Department Chairperson, Winona State University, USA
“I have seen young children identify and match dozens of upside down math, language and picture cards. I have even seen babies match cards using their feet to indicate their choice. I know of a child who at a young age could routinely guess the correct number of jelly beans in a jar.”
These are just partial TweedleWink testimonials – I’ve included only the main portions that most parents seem to be interested in. You can find more testimonials on their website.
