The terms academic tutoring and coaching are often used interchangeably. But while they seem similar, there are a few key differences in the way an academic tutor and coach helps students achieve their academic goals. So how do you know if your child requires an academic coach or if he or she is in need of a tutor?

 
An academic coach’s primary goal is to help your child improve their learning process and develop and strengthen their mental or executive functioning skills. Also referred to as executive functioning coach, an academic coach aims to equip students with the right skills and tools to help them manage and complete their school work more efficiently and overcome learning challenges.
 
On the other hand, academic tutors are content experts and are commonly focused on specific subjects. They work with students who might need assistance in grasping specific concepts or areas of content. An academic tutor’s job is to facilitate understanding and mastery of these subjects by identifying how they learn best through their strengths and weaknesses.
 
If your child is struggling with a particular subject in school, then he or she will benefit greatly from the help of an academic tutorMeanwhile, even students who are performing well academically can also seek the guidance of an academic coach, particularly in task and time management, routine planning, research, and homework planningAt Themba Tutors, our academic tutors and coaches commit themselves to helping students maximize their learning potential and achieve academic success. Our math and science tutors provide help for students of all ages in elementary, middle school, high school, and college.
