I have just completed and earned my Student Transformation System Specialist Certification. Colleen and I worked together for eight weeks reviewing all aspect of brain training of how it works and how we can use the different software programs to help children work to their potential.
I had first worked with Colleen three years ago when my eldest daughter was a student of hers. My daughter at the time was very discouraged with school and Colleen stepped right in to encourage her and help her to develop the strategies she needed to be a successful high school student. I knew then that I wanted to be a part of this process.
Colleen’s transformation training program was easy to follow, very organized and full of relevant information. She also made time to answer any questions that I had. Colleen is a wealth of information in the brain-training field and is constantly adding new techniques and programs to her learning site. Her passion for helping students learn the best that they can is outstanding and rare. She helps to build not only their cognitive skills but also their confidence as well.
This was by far the best investment I have made in a long time and I am very excited to start my own business helping students of all ages. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to make a difference in a student’s life with cognitive brain training.
The Graduating Class of July 2011 – Certified Student Transformation Specialists
Location: Morristown, NJ
Dorothee Burchartz received a BA in Mathematics and Economics from Upsala College, after which she entered the IT field as a programmer, eventually becoming a Business Systems Analyst and Project Manager.
Over the past twelve years her focus has been the three children she adopted from Bulgaria. All were school-aged when they arrived, and all turned out to have a learning disability.
Frustrated with the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process and the lack of assistance provided by the schools, she went in search of other methods of improving her children's ability to learn. She found that many of the cognitive skills programs were too difficult to administer to her own children, or far too expensive for her budget.
Now that she has retired from the IT world, Ms. Burchartz has turned her passion toward filling that gap for other children that have learning challenges.
She became a Certified Student Transformation System Specialist, and created Brain Spring Learning to offer affordable assistance to families who need real, effective, transformational help for their kids.
Dorothee is a provider and a licenced coach for Brainskills and Brainware Safari computer based cognitive skills training programs used within the Student Transformation System or Independently.
