I highly recommend Tip Top Brain. We use their ELA one on one tutoring services and could not be more pleased. The tutor is punctual, engaging, friendly and genuinely cares about our child’s academic progress. She creates challenging but fun lessons and engages our child for a full hour. Our child doesn’t even realize that a full hour has past because she has had so much fun learning. And we see results. During an 8 week session, our child’s reading level went up by 2 tiers. She gets the level of attention that she wouldn’t get at school, especially during COVID and remote learning. She barely speaks in school because the teacher zips through lessons, but during her tutoring sessions, she gets to share her thoughts, work through problems, tackle reading and writing techniques, and have her ideas flourish. Thank you, Tip Top Brain!

I have previously used a tutoring service for my son - similar in concept but not execution. To start, his assessment was so thorough that it really dialed in to what he needed to improve upon. The classroom is comfortable, clean and quiet and my son has ZERO distractions while he works. His tutoring time is incredibly structured from the length of the lesson to the work he receives. The tutors themselves are not only qualified - they are friendly and clear in communication about your child's progress. Pricing is very reasonable for the service. Finally, Tip-Top is owned and managed by two Astoria natives so you are supporting a local business.

Our family loves Tip Top Brain. Their curriculum is challeging, engaging and is aligned with the standards the children are working on in school. The staff is proffesional and well trained. Best of all is the data and feedback they provide for each child in regards to their growth and progress. They are able to pinpoint areas that need improvement and provide excellent intervention. I would recommed Tip Top Brain for all aged children PreK to High School.

My children (10 and 6yo) attended TTB’s Summer Steam camp and absolutely loved it! It far exceeded my expectations. They were attentive and jovial, making learning both impactful and fun - so it seemed nothing like “school” and more an interactive educational playground. I will definitely be coming back!

5 Fundamentals of Financial Literacy

Financial literacy is one of the most important things kids will not learn in school. Whereas it may seem natural to teach your child to swim or drive, teaching financial literacy is rarely a concerted effort. How do we begin to equip our children with money management skills? Well, like anything else start with the basics:

Why Group Tutoring?

Some families and children feel more comfortable in a small group setting than one-on-one, or are on a tight budget.

Our small teacher to student ratio (1:6) ensures maximal attention and delivery of educational material.

We are happy to offer discounted tutoring sessions to small groups of students that would like to focus on improving or enhancing their Math, Reading and Writing skills.

What is it?

Remediation programs are designed to close the gap between what a student knows and what they’re expected to know. In other words, content that students previously failed to learn must be re-taught in order to achieve expected competencies in core academic skills such as literacy (ELA) and numeracy (Math). Ideally, remediation should be sought done early in the learning process, before additional skills are layered in or more formal mastery or summative exams are administered.

How is this done?

To gather enough insight to recognize the large breakdown in knowledge that students are experiencing, a comprehensive diagnostic assessment is needed. This allows teachers to support struggling students with focused learning opportunities, building on previous learning and focusing on the specific omissions in student thinking experienced the first time around, to achieve the necessary academic success.

Who is it for?

Our remediation programs are for students who are demonstrating significant difficulties in reading, writing, and/or math.

Programs

What is it?

Acceleration programs are designed to allow high-ability students to learn at the speed and level that best matches their academic abilities, which may sometimes mean skipping content, but the idea is that such students already understand their grade-level content enough and should not have to repeat it.

How is this done?

A comprehensive diagnostic assessment is needed to assess high-ability students and the extent of their potential. This allows teachers to support advanced students with focused learning opportunities, in order to challenge them with more advanced content that is both demanding and appropriate, as well as build higher-order thinking skills.

Who is it for?

Acceleration programs are best suited for students who are demonstrating continuous academic excellence in school. Such students may often find themselves bored with their current school curriculum or find it too easy, and thus are yearning for a challenge. These students also highly benefit from enrichment programs that highly appeal to their natural abilities. Nonetheless, it is important for parents to assess their child’s maturity level before seeking such acceleration.

Programs

Personalized Tutoring in Group and Private Setting STEAM Camps

What is it?

Enrichment programs are designed to go beyond the standards framework, in which the core curriculum in various subject areas are expanded and explored in more depth or from a different perspective than is generally provided. This means that rather than going faster, you actually slow down a little. These enrichment clubs/activities can take on many forms and can enhance academic, social, oratory, critical thinking, and teamwork skills and require teachers that push students to take their natural curiosity to the next level independently.

Who is it for?

Though all students can benefit from enrichment programs, as they offer richer and more varied educational experiences, they are best suited for more able or accelerated students, due to the demand on higher-order thinking and a strong foundation of core skills.
