About Heguru / Q & A
- The pace of classes at Heguru seems too fast, and difficult to follow.
- We emphasize speed in a Heguru classroom to “develop the right brain on a full scale.” Especially high-speed rhythm training, e.g., flash cards, etc., requires high speed to fully develop the right brain. Years of research shows we can stimulate our brains by high-speed training, and ultimately create brains which work at a high speed.
At Heguru, we vary the pace of each class tactfully. We spend longer hours if the program requires, depending on which abilities of the children we should focus on.
- My child is fidgety, and it makes me concerned.
- All children are fidgety by nature. He/she easily loses interest in one thing, and moves to another. However, a child can absorb information even if he/she is not paying attention to the object. Although a child does not seem to be concentrating, he/she remembers the content accurately. While an adult does not remember anything even if he/she looks like concentrating, a child remembers things although he/she doesn’t looks like concentrating. Parents should prepare a good learning environment for children, just like sowing seeds in a field.
- We are a full-time working couple and don’t have time to look after our child’s learning at home. Will it be all right?
- It is even more important for your child to take HEGL classes if you cannot help him/her at home. Since the contents of our classes are very intense, your child can produce excellent results even if he/she only attends the classes. However, the results would be better if you could look after your child’s learning at home even for a short time.
- The level of students at Heguru is quite high. I am afraid my child cannot keep up with them.
- All the parents feel the same way. It is not surprising at all that your child is behind other children in a class, because they started earlier. You should praise your child for each accomplishment. In 2 months or so, he/she will get used to it, and enjoy learning at Heguru.
- I honestly don’t expect too much from my child. I don’t think a high-standard education, such as the one at Heguru, is necessary.
- We understand early childhood education may seem strange for the parents who would rather raise their children in a more relaxed manner. On the other hand, various studies have concluded that the education environment in his/her childhood is responsible for a huge gap in ability when a child becomes older. We encourage parents to have a perspective to increase the potential of children as they grow, and enjoy nurturing the learning foundation for them just like sowing seeds in a field.
- I cannot help harshly scolding my child.
- Scolding itself is not necessarily wrong. The question is “what you reprove your child for.” As for the “discipline” of a child, you have to be strict to some level. However, you should not scold for what your child “cannot do”. Otherwise, you make the child feel discouraged and incompetent, and he/she will eventually lose self-confidence. If you scold your child too harshly, it would be effective to follow up by showing sincere care.
