“We enable students to thrive! Our online academic mentors & coaches provide students with Holistic, personalized solutions for their unique learning needs that nurture confidence and success.” -Erika R. Carson, Ed.S, Founder & CEO

We are committed to helping all students, and we especially love being able to bring hope to families with pediatric oncology patients in their lives. These children and teens are struggling with school and the learning challenges that have resulted from days of missing school, the latent effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and the stresses that come along with having a long-term medical issue. Over the past few years, our team, under the leadership of The Brain Bodega’s CEO (a childhood cancer survivor herself), has developed a level of expertise in working with cancer kids. Our hope is to stand as a beacon of light for these families and all educators looking for guidance and support when it comes to helping these cancer kids, and other kids like them.

Online Academic Mentoring

What sets The Brain Bodega apart from other tutoring companies is our personalized approach to students’ unique learning needs, enabling students to thrive via academic mentoring and coaching. We know that there’s nothing more precious to you than your children and helping them overcome their learning challenges, so they can become their best selves. Our team supports students by pairing them up with a hand-selected, academic mentor, who has been extensively vetted and background checked because we know quality and safety are important to you. Our academic mentors will work with your child or teen to master their content knowledge, while simultaneously helping them develop their executive functions that impact their learning (time management, organizational skills, communication skills, confidence building, and managing stress) so that your kid can become successful in and beyond the classroom.

Partner Programs

We know it takes a village – helping our partner programs with their efforts to make the world a better place for their kids just makes sense to us. Thoughtfully supporting our partner programs in a way that supports their mission is important to us also, so we take the time to get to know our partners, their students, and their families. By partnering with us, nonprofits and for-profit programs and organizations can enhance their services by establishing or extending education offerings, without needing to add more staff or burdening their existing team members. This means they can focus on what they do best, while we give their students our best – 1:1, quality, online academic mentoring, coaching, learning experiences, and regular student updates at a special partner program rate.

Our service offerings for professionals are customizable to individuals or groups – including single-session or multi-session coaching, training, workshops, lectures, and keynotes. We are here to provide guidance to members of the education community, who are looking for expertise related to online instruction, education technologies, and supporting the learning needs of pediatric oncology students. Sessions are constructed to provide professionals, with innovative strategies and solutions for creating high-quality, learning experiences that are effective, engaging, and relevant to kids. Understanding how to effectively incorporate education technologies, and how to incorporate support strategies for students faced with learning challenges can be a game-changer in this new world of online instruction.
