Raleigh SAT Prep
Our tutors — certified teachers, degreed professionals, and top 10 percent SAT scorers — will contact you at your home, at your convenience, to change your child's future educational horizons. Our unique home tutoring programs, in all of the core subjects, are specially designed for your child's learning style and specific North Carolina curriculum.
With BrainTrust, you set the schedule. We find ways to meet your individual needs, matching a specialized tutor to each child. We are available for day, evening, weekend and summer sessions.
Why is one-on-one home tutoring so effective? Your child can work at his or her own speed, with the freedom to ask questions without peer pressure or embarrassment. Only in this way can your child effectively receive instant feedback when assignments are done properly. Our tutors carefully apportion lengthy assignments, starting from basic to most difficult.
All BrainTrust home tutors utilize the North Carolina curriculum as the common backdrop. Many other ideas and materials will be offered, at your child's comfortable pace, to supplement an ongoing process of understanding and achievement.
We work hand-in-hand with your child's teachers and school. Expect improvement in both grades and fundamental understanding in the tutored subject within a few weeks
At the first session, your tutor will estimate how frequently your student will need lessons. Unlike other tutoring programs, we require only an initial sign-up requirement of six hours. We find that our tutors are normally so effective, long-terms contracts are unnecessary.
After a custom assessment and a specific understanding of your child's current learning abilities at the first lesson, students will be on their way to a greater future.

Some have advanced experience working with children who have learning disabilities. Most are North Carolina certified teachers. Many have post-graduate degrees.
Our BrainTrust gifted tutors have all been gifted students themselves. In addition, we uniformly require teachers of the gifted to have earned at least a master's degree along with at least two years of teaching experience.
