We are open during the summer, the days/hours vary. Please contact us at (718) 440 – 3541 for further information.
Each group session is one-hour long. Private sessions can vary based on student need.
The assessment is required in order for us to create their individualized learning plan that is unique to your child. Each child is at a different level in their academic career, and thus should not have to learn material they already know or be forced to learn material they are not yet ready for. The assessment pinpoints both their reading and math levels down to the sub-skill level. And this ensures success!
Our policy requires that parents give us a 30-day advanced notice when they would like to discontinue any tutoring services. Nope! All of our programs are no contract!
This varies on the classroom. Some classrooms hold more, some hold less. However, what’s most important is the teacher to student ratio. Our teacher to student ratio is 1:6, so no matter the classroom size, this ratio is always the same!
This depends of course on the needs of your child and parent budget. However, we do strongly recommend a minimum of 2 sessions (two-hours long) per week. We offer a one time per week option as well for parents who cannot make it more than once.
No. Tip-Top Brain is a NO HOMEWORK ZONE! We understand how much work our students already receive in school, and so we do not believe that adding to that load will do any good. We want our students coming and leaving with a positive mental attitude. They are here for help or to improve certain skills, not to go home with a book bag full of extra work. Your child’s mental health is something we take very seriously, inside and outside of the classroom.

Private tutoring is of course the most effective way to learn, but is mostly recommended for those in grades Pre-K through 2nd as well as grades 7-12. Younger students really need that 1:1 attention for various reasons (ex: attention span) due to their age. Older students also highly benefit from private tutoring due to their academic load and usually requiring help in various subjects aside from ELA/Math such as science, history, and test prep.

Group tutoring, when done right, is also highly beneficial. Our BrainBooster Group program is highly recommended for grades 3-6, although available for higher grades as well. Students are sat in a group setting but are working on their individualized learning plans. Thus, students don’t have to worry about who is sitting next to them or if they are working faster/slower than them. And with small teacher to student ratios, students are getting more individualized attention! Lastly, it’s also more cost effective for parents! It’s a win win!

Yes, our BrainBooster program is only for ELA and Math. Help with all other subjects is available in private sessions.
A student who is described as “below level” means that they are not where they should be at the moment. There are varying degrees of “below level” as well. Some students may be several years behind whereas others may be just a few months behind. Our adaptive assessments pinpoint exactly where your child is or may be struggling in order to get the most effective help and results.
Brain check is something unique to Tip-Top Brain. Studies of the brain and education have implicated how important it is for students to self-check themselves before and after they start an activity. And thus, our brain checks do just that for our students!
Yes, we do! It is an enriching academic program for grades K-8, that offers science workshops on Thursdays to learn about the human body! Click here for more details or call us to make an appointment to enroll your child today.
Absolutely! We are your writing experts! We help students with all types of writing backgrounds learn how to write. We review grammar, syntax, punctuation, spelling, and a typical structure to follow that can be applied to all of their writing assignments. All short and extended responses are thoroughly reviewed for errors and areas of improvement by our writing experts.
Nope! We have everything here. All we need is for you to bring your children, and we take care of all the rest!
Our teachers come from various backgrounds, with degrees in education, psychology, mathematics, biology, chemistry, you name it! They are hand-selected in order to give your child the best possible education, in which all have to pass a placement test (for their given subject area they teach) as well as pass through a round of mock lessons. This assures excellence not only in academics, but also their abilities to teach. And of course, all of our teachers are fun, engaging, and love to teach!
We have programs for students in Pre-K through 12th grade.
We are open during the summer, but the days/hours vary. Please contact us for further information.
