We cater to all grade levels…
From PreK to 12
We know how fundamental learning is in elementary school, as it forms the foundation for all future coursework in their upcoming years. Our instructors are specially trained to work with students preK-5 and to deliver the material in a logical and efficient manner that maximizes comprehension.
Numerous students begin middle school without a firm knowledge in their foundational elementary courses, causing them to quickly fall behind. We keep this in mind, allowing us to address all of their academic needs to get them where they need to be. We give them the confidence to move forward.
Stressful busy schedules and an overwhelming load of coursework leaves high school students anything but free time. We understand this, and thus make our schedules convenient to theirs. We are here to boost their performance on all of their crucial exams required for graduation as well as for getting into the colleges of their choice. With trained concentration and focus from the right instruction, performance optimization is at your fingertips.

Incredible services provided at Tip-Top Brain! They have an excellent and capable staff with a successful method of teaching!Adamantia M. Parent 2017 (Facebook)
My son has received individualized math tutoring for over two months. I already see a difference in his confidence with math. What's astounding to me is how he loves going there for his twice a week sessions. He used to hate math, but tonight he told me he wanted to practice more. I believe it's the instruction he has received at Tip Top Brain. I had researched Kumon as well, but at Tip Top Brain the help is personalized for the child, is aligned with Common Core standards, and doesn't rely just on rote drill. In addition to tutoring they also have great Coding classes. My son has loved this class! I highly recommend this center!Grizzie A. Parent 2017 (Facebook)

My daughter is currently enrolled in one on one tutoring services at Tip Top. I have seen a tremendous growth in her reading fluency as well as her motivation and confidence. Tip Top provides a nurturing environment where everyone is truly dedicated to meet the needs of every learner!Sergio B. Parent
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.Amy W. Parent
My son Vaughn has a hard time in Math & Reading, but Tip Top has made his learning experience "One in a million, chance of a lifetime. I love them for this.Angela W. Parent
