All of our tutoring is one on one, systematic, structured, sequential, cumulative and multisensory. We tailor our tutoring to each student’s needs.
Research demonstrates a direct correlation between a child developing strong phonological awareness skills and becoming a highly successful reader. Students are engaged in a variety of age and skill appropriate activities designed to help them hear sounds and patterns in words.
Tutors address the learning of basic math facts and processes, the interpretation and solving of “word problems,” and higher level concepts such as decimals, fractions, and percentages. Brainspring also boasts tutors who specialize in advanced mathematics such as algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus.
Reading - Phonics First®
Based on Orton-Gillingham methodology, Phonics First® is an accredited Multisensory Structured Language (MSL) reading program that ensures mastery of reading concepts learned in kindergarten through 5th grade.
Reading - Structures
This program reviews basic phonics instruction in a more sophisticated manner and also includes instruction in Greek and Latin roots which are present in 65% of the words in reading material above a 6th grade level.
Tutors use visualization, Reciprocal Teaching, and a variety of other multi-sensory teaching techniques to help students understand a variety of texts.
Tutors focus on the organization of thoughts and ideas, pre-writing planning, sentence formation, development of topic sentences, supporting details, and conclusions. More advanced writers go on to develop these basic ideas into various forms of essay writing.
Study Skills/Test Prep
We provide the necessary tools to teach students note-taking, test-taking, time management, organizational skills, and study methods that will enable them to study and complete tests more efficiently.
Realistic test experiences are essential to achieving success on standardized tests. During an eight session course, students are prepped in both test taking strategies specific to the ACT or SAT and in content areas. One-on-one instruction allows us to concentrate in the area in which the student needs the most assistance. All our tutors hold degrees in the subject area they are teaching. Their knowledge and enthusiasm sets the tone for maximum achievement.
Aside from providing specialized remedial instruction, Brainspring is also able to provide homework support. Be it Algebra II or Physics, Brainspring tutors have the expertise and experience to assist in all subject areas.
