    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!

    Dusty was the exact person we needed to help our child finish out the school year. So grateful to him for the way he steadily encouraged her and helped her stay on track and organized. He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.
  • adhd coach, Themba Tutors Nicole May ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    I am going into my second year as a Themba tutor. I have met so many great individuals while working for this company. Craig and the rest of the Themba team do such an excellent job picking and choosing Themba tutors that suit each client's … More individual needs! I look forward to meeting new tutors and clients in the 2021-2022 school year!

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

  • adhd coach, Themba Tutors Susan Wong ★★★★★ a year ago
    Giulia Mercuri is a great Italian tutor! She was very responsive and accessible. Giulia put a ton of effort into preparing for each session and really helped our son with test preparation and projects. We are grateful that she was able … More to help, especially since our son did not receive any live teaching during COVID. We are happy that she was referred to us!
  • adhd coach, Themba Tutors Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.
  • adhd coach, Themba Tutors Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • adhd coach, Themba Tutors Jude Eugene ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

    Themba Tutors provided a leaning specialist that was a perfect fit for my daughter. I told them what we were looking for and they delivered. Our tutor is responsive and flexible and makes it easy for my daughter to reach out to her own … More her own, which gives her an added sense of responsibility over her learning. As a therapist myself, I now regularly recommend Themba to my patients. A much needed and well provided service to the community!!

    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

What Is an ADHD Coach?

One of the primary symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) is inattentiveness. Among other things, individuals with ADHD or ADD often struggle with keeping focus, which leads to further challenges in their daily lives. This is where an ADHD coach comes in. But what is an ADHD coach, exactly? And how can they help individuals who are coping with ADHD/ADD?

Here’s What You Need To Know: What Is Executive Functioning?

Why Do You Need an ADHD Coach?

One of the most common neurological disorders, ADHD presents in childhood and continues into adulthood. In younger children, the most common symptoms of ADHD typically range from inability to focus to behavioral issues, such as difficulty getting along with peers or trouble taking turns.

Like other neurological disorders, children do not eventually outgrow ADHD. Without being addressed, these symptoms evolve into more serious challenges for teens and adults—including mood swings, poor organizational or executive functioning skills, struggling to deal with stress, difficulties in building and maintaining relationships, and impatience, to name a few— that can hinder them from succeeding in school or in their careers.

While there is no absolute cure for ADHD, it is possible to manage its symptoms with the help of an ADHD coach. Most individuals who are struggling with ADHD are aware of their challenges and the need for them to be addressed. However, the very same challenges keep them from achieving their goals. Hence, the assistance of an ADHD coach is crucial to provide support and accountability as well as devise strategies to better manage one’s symptoms. 

 

What to Look for in Your Child’s ADHD Coach?

An ADHD coach can offer help and guidance with:

 

Goal-Setting

Goal-setting, in particular, is an action  that requires more than selecting an objective or desired result. According to author James Clear, goal-setting involves not only honing in on a target but also identifying the steps to achieve them and asking yourself what sacrifices, changes and responsibilities you are willing to do to reach your objective. Clear writes more about the process of goal-setting in his article Goal-Setting: A Scientific Guide to Setting and Achieving Goals, where he discusses how to set achievable goals, how to measure them, and how to be consistent.

 

Decision-Making

Contrary to what most of us may believe, sound decision-making skills have nothing to do with intelligence. According to The Science of Decision Making: Why Smart People Do Dumb Things, for many, decision-making depends on one’s personal beliefs and the beliefs of those around them–particularly of people in their community whose opinions they value. Hence, in many instances, our decisions are not based on rationality but on whether they align with our peers’ and community’s beliefs. Unfortunately, this does not always mean it’s the right decision or lead to the right results. Working with an ADHD coach allows individuals to learn positive decision-making styles that is based on rationality (intuitive vs rational),  yielding optimal results (maximizing vs satisficing), and whether the objective is clear or undefined (combinatorial vs positional) using the DECIDE (Determine, Establish, Consider, Identify, Develop, Evaluate) framework of decision-making.

Accountability Partner

Achieving your goal won’t be possible without accountability. Goals require you to identify what costs you’re willing to pay and what sacrifices you’re ready to make to achieve them, but without accountability, you are more likely to go off-track and lose sight of your objective. According to the article Why An Accountability Partner Will Increase Your Chances of Successbeing specific with your goals and firmly committing to it increases your chances of success from 10 percent to 25 percent.  When you extend this commitment with someone  whom you can trust to hold you responsible, your likelihood of success is at 65 percent. But when you and your partner create specific accountability plans, your chance of success rises to 95 percent. More than just your sounding board, your accountability partner is someone who can guide, coach, and help you stick to your commitments and encourage you to persevere despite unforeseen hurdles. An accountability partner is of great importance as you build positive values, develop good study and work habits,  and strengthen your decision-making and goal-setting skills.

Mindsetting

While we often attribute someone’s success to their intelligence, talents, or skills, renowned Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck states this is not always the case. Achieving your goals and reaching your objectives in life mostly rely on one thing–your mindset. In her book, “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success,” Dweck discusses her idea of mindset: how a “growth mindset” can be your ticket to success, and how you can be held back by having a “fixed mindset.” Our mindset is rooted in our most basic beliefs. And whether we are aware of it or not, these beliefs–particularly those that we hold about ourselves–ultimately shape our personality and affect our goals and our chances of achieving those goals. To know more about the fixed and growth mindset–and which one you should develop to help you succeed–read our blog Carol Dweck’s Fixed and Growth Mindset: How You Think Can Determine Your Success.

What Does an ADHD Coach Do?

ADHD coaching was first introduced in the mid-90s and has since established itself as a professional field, with its own specific requirements, certifications, and standards. An ADHD coach specializes in helping individuals cope with and navigate their symptoms so they may be able to gain confidence, fulfill responsibilities, accomplish goals, and lead productive lives in spite of their challenges.

Similar to cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), a type of psychotherapy that aims to change the way individuals react to certain situations, ADHD coaching is geared towards finding and teaching practical ways to handle everyday tasks that were made more difficult by the disorder.

During coaching sessions, an ADHD coach will introduce methods and strategies that aim to help individuals learn and adopt positive behaviors. Some areas that an ADHD coach will work on are:

 

  • Problem-solving
  • Stress management
  • Prioritization and goal setting
  • Planning, time management, and organization
  • Impulse control
  • Building confidence and motivation
  • Improving communication skills and relationships
  • Memory
  • Chores Checklist

The skills and strategies an individual acquires from ADHD coaching are specifically designed to change or improve habits and build healthier routines to lessen the toll of ADHD symptoms in one’s everyday life.

 

With the help of an ADHD coach, one can learn how to:

  • Create steps or specific action plans to accomplish a goal
  • Maintain focus to execute a plan and see it to completion
  • Initiate tasks and continually motivate oneself towards a goal

How to Find an ADHD Coach?

ADHD coaches can have different backgrounds, so it’s important for patients to assess their needs so they can access the right kind of care. An ADHD coach may be certified by the International Coach Federation, a licensed mental health professional, or a teaching professional with background and training in teaching students with ADHD.

So far, Aaron is doing much better. it’s a slow process but he’s heading in the right direction. I think he is realizing his “weaknesses.” He’s trying to get more organized and focused so that he prioritizes his work accordingly. Thank you for helping Aaron so that he has a much smoother end of the school year; he would have been lost otherwise.

We are parents of a bright college age son who, despite his intelligence, has struggled academically because of ADHD and executive functioning challenges. After a very difficult first three semesters at college, which deeply affected his confidence and self esteem, our son left school and for years was too discouraged to return, fearful of more failure. We reached out to Themba Tutors to recommend someone who could give him the support and encouragement he needed to return to school, and was referred to Jordan W. We could not have been happier with that referral. We had no idea whether our son would be willing to work with him, but Jordan’s warm and engaging nature won him over. With Jordan’s support, guidance and encouragement, our son went back to college! He is still a work in progress and has many challenges ahead, but we are, and will always be, grateful for Jordan’s kind and caring nature, intelligence and extraordinary patience in helping our son move forward. Thank you Jordan and thank you Themba Tutors.

I own a tutoring/ educational consulting company myself.. I called to ask for help with my daughter who has sensory, adhd related issues. The woman on the phone was very honest with me and really guided me in the right direction. Most of the other companies I had called didn’t seem to understand what multisensory learning style means, which is fine, but I’m assuming they wouldn’t understand my daughter’s learning needs. I wound up getting better services through my daughter’s school, but I’d recommend Themba to any parent with a child with special education needs.
