WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
Relaxing atmosphere and I could have a giggle at times. Michael was just the perfect tutor.
Thank you Michael for being unfailingly pleasant, professional, and altogether jolly.
Succeeded with remembering the shopping list.
I had an opportunity to practice remembering names at a social gathering on Friday where we met a lot of new people. Being an inquisitive person I found it easier to probe into people’s names rather than weave a story around them. For instance I was introduced to a lady called Sheryl and asked her if she was Sheryl or Cheryl. By concentrating on people’s names and repeating them as soon as possible I was able to remember most people I met, even differentiating between an Annette and a Lynette so was quite pleased.
Very clearly presented. Good balance between information and practice. Most people do not know you can reverse your ‘brain loss’.
I found it to be very easy to understand and then put strategies into practice. Michael was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
Such an efficient, experienced, professional presentation. Thank you.
I am very much enjoying my Brainfit class
It is an extremely stimulating and useful course at any age or stage. I like the follow-up emails which remind me to keep up the things I’ve learnt.
I am thoroughly enjoying the course and find it very beneficial, so thank you.
Reassuring, encouraging, excellent strategies provided to “enhance remembering”.
Brainfit was extremely useful, providing me with strategies to improve my memory, even at the young age of 34. Michael was very easy to understand.
