Dr Tere Linzey’s program “Brain Matters” helped my son go from smart to brilliant. During exams or stressful times, my son’s anxiety would kick in and he wouldn’t digest all the directions to the exam correctly or miss a part of a math word problem, etc. so he’d get good grades but not exceptional. After learning Dr Linzey’s technique, my son now gets outstanding grades in every academic class,… plus an additional bonus from “BrainMatterZ:” he scored in the 98% on his ACT college entrance exam. It’s now my daughter’s turn to go through Dr Linzey’s program and reap the rewards.

After years of unsuccessful tutoring and two detailed assessments, I was told that my child had an amazing auditory system because he was compensating for his lack of visual memory and perception. Dr. Linzey’s program not only restored his visual memory and perception, suddenly his writing and spelling improved and he could focus for long periods of time. Reading speed and fluency were suddenly at grade level. She changed his entire ability to learn...I can’t recommend it enough!

My daughter has been wearing bifocals, correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism since she was two years old. Because of these visual challenges, her visual processing centers have been under-developed making everything from catching a ball to reading and written test taking difficult. She lacked the focus to work independently and would become fidgety after reading 4-6 pages in a book.

After working with Dr. Linzey for 31 hours, I have seen marked improvements in my daughter’s confidence, ability to focus and work independently, read and take tests. For the first time in her life, at age 13, she has started and finished several age appropriate novels. Where she previously earned D’s on tests, she now earns mostly A’s and B’s. Working with Dr. Linzey has changed my daughter’s life - and mine.

My daughter is a hard-working, serious, high school student but had to work harder than most of her peers to earn good grades. We always knew she was extremely smart but schoolwork seemed to be increasingly more laborious for her and she needed to take more time to complete her homework compared to others in her grade. We knew she needed help but were unsure of what kind of help she needed. After deciding to do an assessment and cognitive skills work with Dr. Linzey our daughter reduced her test anxiety and spent less time on homework. She earned straight A’s her last quarter and raised her SAT scores 200 points. She is happier than she has ever been and got into the college of her first choice. We are grateful to Dr. Linzey and her cognitive skills program which has added so much to our daughter’s self-esteem and preparedness for college.

Dr. Linzey, I want you to know that you change student’s lives!

Our son, who attended Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, was a client of Dr. Tere Linzey. During his time with her, his SAT scores improved over 200 points in both Critical Reading and Writing. In both of these areas, he had great trouble but after his time with Dr. Linzey, his understanding of the material, as well as his confidence, greatly improved!
