Einstein’s achievements are monumental, leading many to ask: was Einstein’s brain different?
A look at his childhood history would show you two things that are not commonly known about him.
1. Einstein was a slow learner in one particular area—speaking.
2. Einstein wasn’t exactly the A+ textbook learner in school that most of us imagine him to be. In fact, Einstein’s greatest experiments were not planned in equations but he first thought of them in pictures. For example, he tried to visualize what it would be like to ride alongside a light beam and 10 years later, he came up with the theory of relativity.
So the answer is yes, Einstein’s brain is different – just like everyone else’s. But one isn’t necessarily better than the other—just different. Likewise, it’s not only Einstein who can accomplish great feats. Your child can be an Einstein, too!
Every child has a potential to be great—but this potential for greatness needs to be nurtured. That is why founder Toru Kumon made it his life mission to spread the Kumon Method of Learning because this is the very reason for its existence—pursuing children’s potential.
But beyond developing strong academic skills, the Kumon Method focuses on developing a child’s study attitude – a child with confidence, high motivation, and a desire to learn new things.
Give Kumon a try by joining the 2-week Free Trial Campaign! Once it is over and you’ve gotten a taste of what Kumon can offer, we encourage you to enroll, stay, and continue. Let Kumon discover the Einstein in your child.
