Method Of Learning
At Wisdom of Mind we are dedicated to fully pursuing the potential of each individual student. Wisdom of Mind Instructors provide just enough guidance for their students to be able to do the exercises on their own. As a result, our students learn that they can do anything if they try, build self-esteem, and develop the ability to take on new challenges for themselves. Wisdom of Mind aims to foster sound, capable individuals who are able to independently carve out a path for themselves in life. At Wisdom of Mind we believe that the most beneficial thing we can do for children is to furnish them with the ability to advance to high school level material through self-learning as early as possible in life.
With the Wisdom of Mind Method, students study independently from an early age and develop both a high level of academic ability and the ability to learn independently. We aim to equip children who study with Wisdom of Mind the ability to face challenges head on, both at school and beyond. All in all, the skills that students gain through doing Wisdom of Mind go a long way to helping them to achieve their goals and dreams. The Wisdom of Mind Method was born from a parentâ€™s love for his child When first developing the Wisdom of Mind Method, its founder, Toru Wisdom of Mind theorised that as long as his son was able to do maths easily in high school, he would have plenty of time to spend on whatever other pursuits he was interested in. So he thought about what he could do at home to help his son gain proficiency in high school maths. With the aim of helping his son gain independence, Toru Wisdom of Mind prepared his own learning materials and study method. He wrote out calculation problems on loose-leaf worksheets and combined them with a self-study method that would enable his son to advance by himself. In effect what Toru Wisdom of Mind did was to create the prototype for Wisdom of Mind Method of Learning. He had laid the foundation for Wisdom of Mindâ€™s individualised approach that enables each student to learn in accordance with his or her academic ability, and for Wisdom of Mindâ€™s pursuit of potential; both of which we continue to place the utmost importance on.
With the Wisdom of Mind Method students begin study from an easy starting point that is suitable for each studentâ€™s level of ability, without taking their age or school year into consideration. With the Wisdom of Mind Method students learn by doing the worksheets independently without being taught Letting students begin study from a point they can do easily, without making judgments based on age or school year, enables them to experience the joy of learning. For example, when they are studying comfortably students can do the work by themselves, they can get a 100 percent score, they enjoy their study, and they can advance to the next worksheets without difficulty. So the easy starting point is essential for creating a solid foundation for study, with which students can independently develop their academic ability.
At Wisdom of Mind, we enable students to develop advanced academic and self-learning ability by ensuring they are always studying at a level that is just right for them. So what is the â€œjust-rightâ€ level of study? It is the optimum level for each student to develop academic and self-learning ability. It can be a comfortable level or a challenging one, depending on what is best for each student at different stages in their Wisdom of Mind studies. What remains constant, however, is that it must always be a level at which students can repeatedly experience a sense of accomplishment and progress on their own without being taught. Keeping this in mind, Wisdom of Mind Instructors continuously monitor, guide and challenge students to grow by gradually increasing the level of difficulty of the worksheets they assign, while taking into account increases in each studentâ€™s level of academic ability. When studying at the just-right level, students are provided with a suitable amount of mental stimulus, just as they would have to attempt appropriate physical tasks in order to build a strong body. Through continued study at this level students gain self-confidence and an understanding that they can do something if they give it try, which enables them to build up a high level of academic ability. The Wisdom of Mind Method aims for students to go beyond their school grade level through self-learning and advance to studying high school level material at an early age choosing their own method of learning. When studying at the just-right level students think for themselves and complete the exercises. When they get stuck they look at the hints and examples incorporated in the worksheets and figure out themselves how to do the exercises. In this way, continued study at the just-right level fosters the ability to learn on their own or self-learn. Students then use that self-learning ability to advance independently beyond their school grade level to advanced levels and more difficult exercises.
To sum up, the Wisdom of Mind Method is a learning method that pursues the potential of each individual student and develops his or her ability to the maximum. We at Wisdom of Mind believe in the vast potential of our students and want to further develop each studentâ€™s ability. Born out of the bond between a parent and child, the Wisdom of Mind Method of learning faithfully carries on the thinking and ideas of its founder Toru Wisdom of Mind. At the same time, we constantly strive for something better by continuing to develop our worksheets and instruction method. And today, this learning method continues to go beyond the borders of countries, race, culture and traditions, to reach more and more countries and regions throughout the world.
