Meet the Coaches: Matt Lamb

Good morning,

We know how important it is for our clients and potential clients to get to know the Linder staff, so today we are continuing our 'Meet the Coaches' series with Educational Coach Matt Lamb!

"I am a Fairfax County native and have spent most of my life in either Burke or Springfield.  I went to Thomas Jefferson High School (TJ), and graduated in 2010.  I then went on to William and Mary and graduated in 2014 with a double major in psychology and philosophy.

Since graduating from college, I have worked extensively in the tutoring and test-prep industry.
I spent the last two summers teaching SAT and TJ prep classes here in Fairfax County, and spent the year in-between at a small tutoring company in Los Angeles, working with students mainly one on one.
In my time tutoring, I have worked with students on SAT prep, homework help, math and verbal advancement, executive functioning, LSAT prep, and just about anything else you can imagine.  I love the unique challenge that each of my students presents, and love nothing more than helping students achieve goals they had never considered possible.  I am excited to be back in northern Virginia, doing work that I love for a company shares my passion and perspective on education."

How Science Is Rewiring The Dyslexic Brain

Good morning,

Today we are sharing an article from entitled 'How Science Is Rewiring The Dyslexic Brain.' As you may or may not know "dyslexia is the most common learning disability in the U.S" and science has proven that "the human brain naturally picks up spoken language."  but not as much for reading.

"You can think of the reading brain as moonlighting," says Guinevere Eden, director of Georgetown University's Center for the Study of Learning. "Your brain will essentially take other brain areas — that were designed to do something else — and use [them] toward reading.'

'Learning to read requires co-opting parts of the brain and training them to recognize letters, clump those letters together into small units, relate those units to sounds and, eventually, blend those sounds together into a word.

For millions of people with dyslexia — the most common learning disability in the U.S. — that process doesn't come easily.'

This article does into further detail about how Dr. Eden and her team of researchers 'are using brain scans to figure out exactly what makes dyslexic brains different. They also want to know what can be done to rewire the brain, coaxing it to do what it wasn't "designed" to do."

To learn more about this new study and how it can change the way we think about those with Dyslexia, visit the article link here.

If your child has Dyslexia and struggles in an aspect of school we can help! Contact us today by calling Kristin directly at: (703) 270-9129.
