    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!
  • Avatar S CL ★★★★★ 3 years ago

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.
  • Avatar Nicole May ★★★★★ 3 years ago

    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!

  • Avatar Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ 3 years 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.
  • Avatar Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ 4 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.
  • Avatar Jude Eugene ★★★★★ 3 years 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.

As a therapist myself, I now regularly recommend Themba to my patients. A much needed and well provided service to the community!!

    The tutors at Themba are fantastic! Caitlyn McNeill helped our son academically, but also with getting organized in every subject, which he so desperately needed.

    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.

New York City (NYC) Manhattan Brooklyn Queens Staten Island Bronx

Are you struggling to stay on track amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City life? Do you feel like your ADHD symptoms are holding you back from reaching your full potential in both work and personal life? You’re not alone. Len Adler, M.D., a prominent figure in adult ADHD research and a psychiatry professor at New York University, contends that a significant majority, around 75% of adults, are unaware that they have ADHD. This lack of awareness not only harms the individuals who remain undiagnosed but also impacts their families and friends negatively.

New York City’s distinctive charm evokes diverse reactions, with some praising its vibrant pace and diversity that provide abundant work and leisure options. In contrast, others feel overwhelmed by its chaotic intensity. As the “city that never sleeps,” its constant activity and accessible 24-hour subway system represent a city embracing all, regardless of social status, embodying the ideal of a cultural melting pot. For adults managing ADHD, navigating the fast-paced environment of the city can present workplace challenges, particularly in achieving a work-life balance. Despite these difficulties, the city’s reputation as a hub of opportunity and inclusivity continues to attract attention post-pandemic. Themba Tutors, based in NYC, provides insightful strategies, accountability measures, and helpful techniques for New Yorkers. These services are designed to improve time management, enhance organizational skills, boost productivity, and effectively navigate these challenges.

Delving into the intricacies of time management within the city, we incorporate principles from Carol Dweck’s Fixed and Growth Mindset: How You Think Can Determine Your Success to help you understand your mindset and develop a growth-oriented approach.

We address modern technology’s distractions and dopamine’s role in our struggles to disconnect. Emphasizing the importance of deep work, we introduce tools like Fantastical to enhance organization and focus. Our coaching integrates mindfulness practices to tackle executive function skills, addressing challenges such as time blindness and promoting effective decision-making in goal setting. We utilize tools like the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS) and understand the clinical practice guidelines to tailor our approach to your needs.

We offer practical strategies to conquer procrastination, such as the two-minute rule, and delve into the 4 principles of behavior change to foster sustainable progress. Our approach is not just theoretical; it’s about real-life applications and tangible results.

Our coaching extends beyond just building good habits; we also address breaking bad habits to promote long-term success. We emphasize the importance of non-sleep deep rest (NSDR) for cognitive function and overall well-being.

Ultimately, we aim to tackle immediate challenges and foster long-term resilience and success in New York City’s ever-evolving landscape. We’re here to help you thrive, not just survive.

TESTIMONIALS

Rebecca is an awesome tutor, and I love her. She has a lot of patience, and she is wonderful at giving examples to a student with ADHD on how to study. She was very dedicated to me and made sure I understood the material. Thanks so much for recommending her.

 

-Sharon S.

Alex is inspiring and encouraging. He believed in me more than I believed in myself and helped me move forward with my goals.

 

-R.F.

Rhia has been a tremendous help with my personal and academic goals. Addressing task initiation and planning has been a primary focus for us. Although this is still a work in progress, Rhia’s strategies, like using a calendar or log to track tasks and timing, and our weekly check-ins, have helped me hold myself accountable and reduce task paralysis and procrastination. We’re also working on exploring different study and retention techniques. Rhia helped me create a strategy for MCAT content review using videos and mixed learning styles that have been very effective! Beyond academics, Rhia has encouraged me to be more compassionate to myself and acknowledge and reward my progress, no matter the magnitude of my improvement. Rhia has also encouraged me to be more in tune with my emotions to understand the feelings that arise when I struggle with tasks and combat them. Overall, Rhia’s guidance and input have been invaluable, and I’m grateful to Themba for connecting us!

 

-M.U.

Yes! I loved working with Chloe! She’s so skilled, patient, and helpful.

 

-J.B.

At Themba Tutors, we take the time to help students/clients understand their strengths and progress in areas where they need to improve. We offer personalized tools for each of our clients to help them become more aware of their individual needs as they work towards short-term goals. Improving these skills will benefit our students’/clients’ long-term plans.
