Math Tutoring

My daughter has been having a GREAT experience with her tutor, she is doing an AWESOME job helping her understand math. My daughter was failing every test she was taking and last week she took a test and got an A, I LOVE how her tutor covers A LOT in one hour, writes notes for her and then she sends it to her so she can use as a guide for the remaining of the week since she only has her one day a week. Her tutor is always on time, always ready, friendly, and easy to understand. I would definitely and have already recommended BrainStorm Mentors to some of my friends for their children that also need tutoring. As a parent I feel GREAT about BrainStorm Mentors and they are affordable, LOVE IT!!

Thank you so much for the amazing review! We couldn’t be happier that your daughter is having a great time with her mentor, and it’s hearing stories like yours that warms our hearts. We love your daughter so much and are overjoyed that you picked us!

Reading and Writing Tutoring

We are PLEASANTLY surprised with how our virtual tutoring is going with BrainStorm Mentors. We were worried that virtual will not compare to in-person but they have proved us wrong. Our tutor, Lena, is great with our 6 yo son and we are seeing improvements in his reading after a few sessions. He is even picking up books to read by himself now! The price is very affordable, they give immediate feedback to the parents, and the best part is you can tell she truly loves what she does. I highly recommend BrainStorm Mentors!!

Reading and Writing Tutoring

I contacted BrainStorm because our 9 year old wanted support in writing a story to potentially become a script. I am so happy I did, because Ren, the assigned tutor is magnificent. Our daughter is learning so much, she is engaged and excited. It feels a Godsend for our daughter after months of lonely school work due to the pandemic. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your amazing review and support! We have absolutely loved working with your daughter and seeing confidence in her writing soar. We can’t wait to read the final story she crafts, and thank you again for choosing to work with us!

My son uses their service for math tutoring. He really enjoys the one on one instruction from someone that’s closer in age to him than I am. Would highly recommend
BrainStorm Mentors's reply
Thank you so much for the great recommendation! We love being able to provide students with a space that encourages them to be confident, and it means so much to us that we could provide that to your son. We look forward to continuing to work with you!

BrainStorm Mentors found a tutor for my child that can cover three different subjects. I was glad I didn't have to find three different tutors and thus saving me money. With the help of the tutor, my daughter was able to bring up her grades through this stressful time of virtual learning. I would definitely recommend trying out BrainStorm Mentors, and see if they are a right fit for your child.
BrainStorm Mentors's reply
Thank you so much for the loving recommendation! We're so glad that your mentor was able to help in multiple areas, and nothing means more to us than hearing from our satisfied students and parents. We hope we can continue to ease the burdens of virtual learning for other students in the same way! Thanks again.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We want every student and family to be able to benefit from our resources, regardless of economic status. That's why we our starting rates are all affordable and will never exceed $35! In addition to this, we can provide great discounts for anyone who needs them. We promise that at BrainStorm, you will never have to sacrifice affordability for quality of tutoring services. Aside from our popular tutoring services, BrainStorm also hosts cheap workshops/summer camps, free competitions where students can win prizes/scholarships, and free on-demand educational resources. There are only fees that apply in the case of a late cancellation or late payment. We allow cancellations up until the day of the session, however if a cancellation is made within 24 hours of the scheduled session time, there will be a $15 late cancellation fee. We also only charge a late payment fee if an invoice is left outstanding for 11 days or longer. In addition, if a client misses a session or arrives late, they are still expected to pay the full amount owed for the scheduled session. These policies are only in place to protect our tutors’ work and time. We also understand that individuals may be impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic, so if a client wishes to request a fee to be waived, we will absolutely take this into consideration! Overall, we want to do everything we can to provide an affordable and valuable experience for our clients.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We understand that each student has a unique learning style and study habits, and how difficult it can be to receive the one-on-one support they need in the classroom. That’s why we cater our mentorship services to the particular needs and circumstances of each individual. Matching every student with the right mentor is the first step we take towards helping students reach their academic goals. If students or parents would like to get to know their mentor before committing to sessions, that is definitely something we can do! From there, mentors work with students to create an individualized learning plan to achieve their academic goals within their desired timeframe. Mentors help our students with tutoring for their hardest subjects, offering catered notes and resources, and even by providing valuable college admissions advice! At BrainStorm, we call our tutors "mentors" instead. (This is because we don't want students to feel ashamed for needing a "tutor," rather we want to empower them to have a "mentor" who can help them in school.) Since we're college students, many of our clients have been able to gain much needed confidence in their academics, knowing that they're working with someone close to them in age who has been in their shoes before!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Each and every one of our mentors have high levels of expertise and passion in their respective subjects. All mentors at BrainStorm are college students with ample experience and professionalism that only teach subjects they have proven expertise in. Our mentors complete background checks, virtual teaching training, and are continuously invovled in a four-step professional development and accountability cycle to ensure that we're providing the best material and experiences possible for our students. On top of that, our mentors are all are all young, outgoing, friendly, empathetic and caring individuals who can relate with students on a much more intimate level than any other tutoring service can provide. Unlike seasoned tutors, college students aren't several years-removed from their education in the topics that they tutor. We know exactly what it's like to be in our students' shoes, because we were just there! All in all, BrainStorm's academic mentors are prepared to meet each student's individual needs, and can provide you with better quality education at a significantly cheaper rate than you'll find other tutors.
