Welcome to The Brain Coach podcast! I'm your host, Mary Turos.
I've had a fun, sometimes frustrating, but always fascinating journey to become 'The Brain Coach'.
I started my career as a public school teacher in Maryland and loved helping kids with challenges and learning difficulties.
Living in the heart of Maryland academia, I have the unique opportunity to connect with many researchers and practitioners. I pick their brains and transform ideas into methods that work for my learners and their families. This is the information I hope to crystallize and bring on this podcast to help more people find harmony in their lives.
As an executive function coach, I see kids and adults who want to be more productive and independent (and want to have fun) but something is holding them back. You may have someone in your life who's 'stuck' and struggles with school, academics, work, or behavior but they just don't know WHY. This could even be you. I help by figuring out the WHY and then make a plan for moving forward.
We'll examine simple changes that help create better daily routines, encourage better choices, avoid risky behaviors, and help get 'unstuck'.
All of this work is rooted in neuroscience and what we know about the brain.
On the podcase, I'll interview researchers, child experts, education professionals, advocates, and everyone and anyone who's willing to talk and share their expertise. Simple, actionable information from experts families can use right away to help.
I'm so excited to get started and hope you'll follow along on this journey. Thanks for listening.
Make it a great day!
