Themba Tutors – Offering One-on-One Support in Algebra for High School and College Students
Academic success is achievable in whatever stage your child is at in his or her education, but it is by no means guaranteed. There could be a number of reasons why a kindergarten, high school, or even college aged student might begin to fall behind in their studies. If this happens and is not addressed in due time, the effects can be extremely damaging to the progress and academic confidence of that student.
With a complex subject like math, the effects experienced when falling behind can be even more pronounced. This is due the complicated nature of concepts in upper level maths of Calculus, Trigonometry, and Algebra that are oftentimes difficult to master. This results in students struggling to grasp math concepts, experiencing ever-dwindling confidence levels and a growing feeling of not being able to cope with the academic challenges they face and the possibility of worsening test performances.

Through weekly home or school sessions in the New York City, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island, Long Island (Nassau County) areas, our tutors, coaches, and learning specialists work tirelessly to firm up foundational knowledge in and tackle any areas with which your child is struggling. Themba Tutors LLC also offers online tutoring options. We work with students being homeschooled and teach students in public and private elementary, middle, high school, and in college without learning difficulties, and we specialize in helping students of all ages, including adults and professionals, who are struggling with reading, writing, math, foreign language, focusing, organizing, and studying. We are experts in ADHD/ADD, executive functioning, language processing, reading, e.g. dyslexia, writing, e.g. dysgraphia, and math disorders e.g. dyscalculia, autism spectrum disorders, non-verbal learning disorder, and other learning differences. We coach students to learn how to organize, plan, prioritize, focus, avoid distraction, and keep track of materials and tasks. Goals include improving memory and information retention, spending more focused time on tasks and completing them, decreasing procrastination, organizing schoolwork, managing time more effectively, and learning to think carefully before acting. Specialists model and support the application of these skills in the appropriate context. They put the student in the driver’s seat to best generalize these skills without holding the steering wheel. Our goal is to help students and professionals feel more confident and become more effective learners and workers overall. Our ultimate aim is to get the student to maximize his or her learning potential from a collaborative approach: working with you, teachers, and with other professionals.
