    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.

My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    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 ★★★★★ 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.

    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 ★★★★★ 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.

    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 Are the Causes of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)?

  • Drug exposure
  • Nicotine and cigarette smoking
  • Low birth weight
  • Brain damage
  • Nutrition (food additives)
  • Premature birth

What Is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in Girls?

They can also be found in how their brains grow and develop. These developmental differences can make it harder to diagnose whether a girl is dealing with ADD or ADHD.

How Is a Child Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)?


It is difficult to diagnose Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder because the symptoms are similar to the normal behaviors in young children.


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is challenging to diagnose because the symptoms can be similar to normal behaviors in young children. The diagnosis of ADD or ADHD is clinical and requires a comprehensive evaluation by a licensed clinician, such as a psychologist. This evaluation encompasses medical, educational, developmental, and psychological assessments. To receive a diagnosis, a child must exhibit six out of nine symptoms of inattention and hyper-impulsivity. In the case of adults, the symptoms need to have been experienced since the age of twelve.  13 Executive Function Skills for Academic Success.


According to a study published in the journal Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, here are some interesting statistics about children diagnosed with ADHD:

1.) Prevalence: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that approximately 6.1 million children in the United States, accounting for 9.4% of children aged 2-17, have been diagnosed with ADHD.

2.) Gender: The study reveals that boys are more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than girls, with around 12.9% of boys aged 2-17 affected compared to 5.6% of girls.


The average age of ADHD diagnosis is typically around 7 years old, although it can vary depending on the child’s symptoms and when they are identified by parents or teachers. Factors such as developmental milestones, school referral, and parental concerns contribute to the age at diagnosis. It’s important to note that ADHD can be diagnosed at any age, and some individuals may not receive a diagnosis until adolescence or adulthood.


Furthermore, the study highlights that approximately two-thirds of children with ADHD have at least one other mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder. Students with ADHD may face academic challenges, such as lower GPAs and higher grade repetition rates compared to their non-ADHD peers. Stimulant medication, like Ritalin or Adderall, is commonly used in ADHD treatment, with an estimated 3.5 million children aged 2-17 taking medication for ADHD in 2016. Additionally, adults with ADHD have higher rates of unemployment, divorce, and substance abuse compared to their non-ADHD peers.

What Are the Strategies to Help Students with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?

When working with a coach or tutor, he or she can help individuals with ADD or ADHD develop key skills to be successful in school, at work or at home. These include:

  • Planning skills
  • Self-motivation
  • Time management skills
  • Self-efficacy


Making learning easier for students with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is an important thing a coach or a tutor needs to apply. The methods they use in teaching are also crucial to help the student understand and absorb subject contents. How you remove distractions that disrupt concentration is a must for students who have trouble focusing. While ADHD presents certain challenges, hyperfocus demonstrates the unique strengths and skills you have to offer. Harness this superpower and see how much you can achieve. As a coach or a tutor for students with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), our most effective tool is having a positive attitude and a supportive relationship with the student. We find ways to make and keep our students engaged and motivated. Themba Tutors offers Strategic Observation And Reflection (SOAR).

How Are ADD and ADHD Treated?

  • ADD or ADHD medications help reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity while improving the patient’s ability to work, focus, and learn. Prescriptions for both children and adults are either stimulant or non-stimulant.




  • It is the most common type of medication to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder to reduce symptoms. Stimulants act fast, and there are only a few side effects.
