Melanie West, Educational Psychologist and author of The Right Side of Learning, specializes in designing techniques that stimulate both sides of the brain, keeping children in emotional and neurological balance while learning.
Determined to end the dominance of today’s traditional left-brain, teach-to-the-test teaching style, Melanie firmly believes that in a world of left-brain curricula, some of the most intelligent and creative thinkers are underachieving and misunderstood. Melanie’s mission is to show parents and teachers alike that there is no such thing as an average student. When the right side of the brain is activated before engaging the left hemisphere, the bell curve literally disappears. Her motto: “All students have the ability, and right, to be placed at the front of the class.”
