Brainiac Tutoring is a team of highly-educated, professional adults who are committed to work as team members with the student, family, and school staff to provide the best possible academic results for each student.
We work with each individual student to develop a strategic, customized educational plan which is unique to the student's needs and learning style. While we prefer to work with one student at a time so that the student will not be overly challenged or hindered by the progress of other students, small group tutoring is considered on a case-by-case basis.
While in many cases, it is vitally important to assist each student to improve his or her grades, it is equally important to insure that the student knows how to learn the subject matter without the aid of a tutor. We believe that our focus must always include helping the student to become a more confident and independent learner.
Brainiac Tutoring believes that tutors should be highly-qualified. Each tutor is screened to insure that he or she has a love of learning and a commitment to student success.
Tutors must hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree, with at least 12 semester hours or significant professional experience in the subject matter they are tutoring.
Tutors must have references and come highly recommended.
Tutors have extensive teaching and/or tutoring experience.
Since tutors work with young people, Brainiac Tutors are required to pass a background check.
Convenient Times and Locations
Brainiac believes that tutoring should be as convenient for parents and students as possible.
Tutors meet with the student at mutually-agreeable locations.
We are also able to meet students online using a shared whiteboard with audio/visual capabilities.
Weekday, weekend, and evening meetings are available.
Communication with Parents
We believe in keeping you updated on your child's progress every step of the way.
Communication plans are important, and we are eager to set up a plan for communicating with you about your child's objectives and progress towards those objectives.
Brief phone meetings will be conducted on a periodic basis so that the two-way communication will be of maximum benefit to the student.
Call the office at 901.337.2420 if at any time you have a question, concern, or more information that may help us work with your student more effectively.
