Tip-Top Brain teaches your child to think creatively and divergently to come up with alternate solutions to a problem!
Spring STEAM Camp
10-week program – 25hrs
The Winter STEAM will take place every Saturday.
This program would serve as a supplement to your child’s daily ELA (Reading & Writing) and Math curriculum with individualized attention to your child’s needs.
Science and more!
Additionally, science and engineering will be implemented into this curriculum with emphasis on real-world problem-solving.
Small class size
The class will be capped at 12 students in order to maximize the delivery of educational material.
For Grades PreK – 2nd
Since students in PreK-2 are naturally curious about the world, we build on that curiosity through hands-on learning, all while continuing to enhance their reading, writing, & math skills.
Crucial skill development
Students will also have the chance to strengthen their fine motor and socioemotional skills as well as build strong student-teacher and student-peer relationships.
And aWAVE we go into our Spring STEAM Camp!
Deep Below the Surface
Students will explore the different layers and the fascinating creatures that live beneath the ocean!
A Career in the Ocean
Students will also dive deep into the ocean to discover what it is like to be a marine biologist!
Saving the Ocean
Finally, students will learn ways in which we are harming ocean life and discover ways to protect its existence!
Do you know what type of fish live in the Abyss layer? The Twilight Layer? Did you know that the deepest point ever reached by man is 35,858 feet below the surface of the ocean? Wow is right! Did you know that there are 25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean?
Get your little ones started today!
Aligned with common core standards, we will focus on grade appropriate requirements.
For ELA, these standards include but are not limited to:
For math, some common core standards include:
Students will participate in read alouds to model thinking about literature and identify the author’s lesson, and focus on understanding place value and their numeracy skills.

Meet your teacher
What is your background?
I am a native New Yorker who grew up in a Spanish-speaking family. Teaching and working with children has always been a passion of mine. I received my undergraduate degree in Communications and Science Disorders from Syracuse University in 2014 and a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education in 2016.
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that all children are unique and have something special to bring to their own education. My role as a teacher is to foster a positive environment for all students. That said, I believe in presenting a curriculum that will incorporate different learning styles, such as hands-on and cooperative learning, projects, themes, and individual work that engage and activate students learning.
What is your experience?
I am currently on my fifth year of teaching General Elementary Education. I have experience using different instructional curricula to build students phonemic awareness, decoding skills, and comprehension with fiction and non- fiction texts. For math, I adapt the Common Core Standards to build students understanding of numbers, algebraic thinking, measurement, and geometry. Lastly, I have experience working with students in an ICT setting, and strongly believe in catering to the students’ learning needs to ensure they put forth their best effort.
