Director's Message

director

Dr. Karine Rashkovsky , Founder, Director, & Lead Instructor of Brain Power Enrichment Programs Ltd.

Brain Power offers many unique courses in the fields of English Language Arts; Mathematics and Problem Solving; Public Speaking; Science; and Robotics, Coding, and Aerospace

A leader in after-school enrichment, Brain Power empowers bright and gifted students in grades 1 through 12 who thrive in a challenging environment. Brain Power has grown over the decades with what I describe as a mission “to provide unique curriculum, world-class teaching, and experiential learning opportunities, all while exceeding current educational standards and promoting a social conscience.” As the founder and director, it is my aim to make it clear to those new to Brain Power that we are not one of the many tutoring centres that dominate after-school education options; rather, we are a niche after-school enrichment learning centre designated only for bright and gifted students, thus responding to the provincial and federal demand for fostering the growth of ambitious students. Indeed, given our unique approach, Brain Power has put Toronto on the map for enrichment education in Canada. Our students come from all over, regularly travelling from Brampton, Toronto, Mississauga, Newmarket, Etobicoke, Scarborough, Markham, and as far as Port Elgin, with some even flying in from other Canadian cities like Calgary for certain specialized workshops.

Unlike other after-school learning centres, our goal is not to have our students speed through the Ministry of Education’s curriculum. Instead, we have developed our own advanced enrichment curriculum that is taught by (mostly) Ph.D. level instructors. These high education levels, unique compared to other enrichment centres, mean that our instructors have the expertise to teach sophisticated and challenging ideas. Our brilliant students, who are often not sufficiently stimulated by their day schools, find true mentors in our instructors, who are curious intellectuals like them. Providing a refreshingly low student-to-teacher ratio in relation to most classrooms, our raison d’etre is to be an ideal learning space for high-achieving students.

Brain Power is a mecca of intellectual achievement and social justice that stirs students’ interests in academic pursuits and global issues far beyond the scope of a single school. With Brain’s support and encouragement, our students participate in an array of academic, creative, and entrepreneurial competitions, collaborations, and showcases. They have won top prizes in an array of prestigious local, provincial, national and international academic and entrepreneurial competitions. We’re proud of our students, and we plan to continue providing motivating mentorship and experiential growth opportunities like no other educational facility in North America.

Brain Power graduates tend to have incredible academic achievements, obtain impressive scholarships, take on amazing career trajectories, and live inspiring success stories - and they attribute their success to the fantastic opportunities they found at Brain Power. There is nothing we are more proud of than playing a part in their impressive accomplishments and helping to create young innovators and future leaders.

Our star team of staff makes Brain Power a site of educational excellence. Since I select instructors for their playfulness, gregariousness, and charisma in addition to their educational credentials, Brain Power is a fun and animated space where like-minded people meet. Looking at the staff and students at Brain Power, I feel very optimistic about our future.

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Karine Rashkovsky

"I got in!"expand

 

Hi Karine and Brain Power,

I am so excited to update you with my current university offers! I got in!

THANK YOU for your help with my university applications – it really had an impact on my success and the final quality of my submissions. 

Thanks again!

 

...



"We love your classes!"expand

 

Dear Karine and Brain Power:

My family and I want to thank you for all your hard work this past year and for Brain Power’s existence. I personally wanted to thank you and the great teachers at Brain Power who work with you. Also, you are an awesome teacher. You’re such an inspiration and a role model for both my sister and me. We love your classes!

Thank you.

"We are happy to be part of Brain Power’s journey to enhance kids’ intellectual potential"expand

 

Hi Karine,

I want to congratulate you and the entire Brain Power team for another very enriching year for your Brain Power students.

Both my daughters are happy to be at Brain Power and they thank me and my wife for putting them into Brain Power all the time. We are happy to be part of Brain Power’s journey to enhance kids’ intellectual potential. I am sure all of your students will attribute their success in future endeavours to your programs. I am certainly glad that we have your program.

"I have truly learned more over the span of a year in any Brain Power program than in a decade of public schooling"expand

 

I am a Brain Power alumni and my years at the enrichment program have been educational and inspirational. Most of Brain Power’s staff members have a Ph.D. and are very experienced, motivational teachers who genuinely care about their students. I have learned and progressed as a student and as a person because of this organization, and their dedication to making education accessible, personal, and fun.

Brain Power immediately helped me excel at math and English when I was struggling to grasp those subjects; with the help of Brain Power, I am currently studying business and am a published poet.

I have truly learned more over the span of a year in any Brain Power program than in a decade of public schooling.


Thank you, Brain Power!

"This year was my first year at Brain Power, and it certainly will not be the last"expand

 

This year was my first year at Brain Power, and it certainly will not be the last. The teachers are  remarkable. I would like to give a special thanks to Karine who has helped and taught me so much throughout the year. I felt very comfortable seeking help and just as grateful receiving it. Brain Power has not only taught me so much and has helped me in many ways, it has also introduced and exposed me to new and amazing experiences. I am very happy with my first year at Brain Power; it has undoubtedly helped me to improve myself and my academics.

...



"Brain Power’s style and philosophy of teaching is perfectly in line with current pedagogical research"expand

 

When someone asks me about Brain Power, I often find it hard to fully explain – it is not analogous to any other extracurricular academic program I’m aware of.  I took both math and English courses at Brain Power throughout elementary and high school, but it gave me so much more than just math or English skills. As a student at Brain Power, you learn how to think critically and how to see the world in an innovative way. We don’t, however, learn these skills in elementary or high school, despite how vital they are for academic and intellectual success! That is why Brain Power is so useful and, in my opinion, necessary for anyone invested in their education.

Moreover, Reuven and Karine are exceptional teachers, along with the rest of the staff. The teaching approach they use is highly innovative and effective. Students end up as engaged partners in their own learning, rather than as uninterested participants who blindly regurgitate information. In fact, the further I go into academia, the more I can see how absolutely invaluable Brain Power’s services are. Students get the tools to succeed not just in report cards, but also in actual learning. More than that, Brain Power’s style and philosophy of teaching is perfectly in line with current pedagogical research.

It just doesn’t get much better than Brain Power. As an alumna and a second-year university student, I highly recommend their classes! I am happy to further elaborate on my experiences if anybody would like to know more.

"My educational career made a 180 degree turn..."expand

 

My mother and I met with Dr. Karine Rashkovsky, one of the many spectacular professors who teach at Brain Power Enrichment. Throughout the years at Brain Power, I honed my skills in improving my English studies with the help of the wonderful professors who taught there. They made me feel as if I was their friend rather than a student. Weekly emails were encouraged by the professors to keep contact with students as well. Brain Power has taught me that being educated can actually be fun and I never had an issue attending seminars.  My educational career made a 180 degree turn as soon as I enrolled in the programs offered at Brain Power. I am thankful for everything the wonderful staff has taught me and I know that without them I would not be the same person I am today as I head to university.

 

...



"Brain Power has been the catalyst..."expand

 

Brain Power’s senior language arts classes have helped me build skills necessary to achieve my goals in university. Under my teacher’s professional guidance and expertise in my university prep class, I have honed a variety of essential skills necessary to excel in University…

Most importantly, Brain Power has been the catalyst to fueling my interest in psychological studies as my teacher constantly found creative ways to incorporate current events, socio-political issues, psychology, sociology and philosophy into all lessons.

Brain Power classes were always engaging and stimulated my mind intellectually. They have not only helped me cultivate effective writing skills, but also helped broaden my perspective about several important socio-political issues. I have been inspired me in so many ways to be a more creative and passionate scholar. Brain Power has prepared me well for life at university both academically and socially, making my transition much easier.
