    We could not be happier with the services Valerie provided! She is very thoughtful and knowledgeable and provided significant guidance to support our daughter's speech development outside of our scheduled sessions. She established … More a great working relationship with her, and she will definitely be missed! Your business model is amazing and it was an absolute pleasure working with Valerie. I've referred your organization and Valerie to the Executive Director of our daughter's school and friends/colleagues who are in need of speech therapy services.

    Samantha Dalmas was fantastic! We saw her for a feeding therapy evaluation and while she doesn’t think my daughter needs more feeding therapy sessions at this time, but she gave me lots of tips to try. If my daughter's doctors want … More to see more progress at her next appointment, I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to Samantha again.

    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
    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.
  • Avatar Nicole May ★★★★★ 3 years 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.
  • Avatar Gillian Davidoff ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    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!
  • Avatar carolina luttmann ★★★★★ 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 Susan Wong ★★★★★ 3 years 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!
  • 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.

    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.

    I'm so glad we were referred to Themba Tutors. After a great initial conversation to learn our needs, we were connected with an excellent tutor, Felicia, who is helping our high school daughter learn better organizational and executive … More skills. Highly recommended.
  • Avatar Fara Jones ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    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!!
  • Avatar Frances Simpson ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    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. She offered great advice and useful strategies that helped our son become … More a more successful student. We are using Themba tutors again this year for our daughter. We're so happy to have been referred to them!

    Paul Smith at Themba has been an exceptional tutor for my son, both in terms of teaching the subject matter and teaching how best to approach the process of learning math and executing assignments. We feel very fortunate to be working with … More Paul.
  • Avatar Monica Alzate ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    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 Autism Spectrum Disorder?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a difference in the way a kid’s brain develops. It is a complex developmental disorder characterized by persistent difficulties in social interaction, speech, and nonverbal communication, and restricted or repetitive behaviors. The effects of ASD and the severity of symptoms vary from person to person.

 

AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER PRESENTATION

TESTIMONIALS

What Causes Autism?

Although there is no known single cause of autism, studies show that developing autism can be due to genetic and environmental factors, or a combination of both. These genetic and environmental influences may increase the likelihood of a child developing autism. They do not, by themselves, cause autism.

 

Genetic risks. Change or mutations in certain genes increase the risk of autism in children, and this can be passed down if either parent carries the changed gene. This is why autism tends to run in families. Autism is also associated with genetic conditions, such as Rett syndrome or fragile X syndrome.
 
Environmental risks. Certain conditions and situations may also increase or decrease the risk of autism in people who are already genetically predisposed to itFor example, advanced parent age, consecutive pregnancies (less than a year apart), multiple pregnancies (twins or triplets, etc.), and pregnancy and birth complications (low birth weight, premature birth earlier than 26 weeks) are shown to increase the risk of autismOn the other hand, vaccines, despite the controversies and debates surrounding them, have been proven through decades of research and studies to not cause or have any effect on a child’s chances of developing autism.

 

How Is Autism Diagnosed?

At every checkup, pediatricians look for signs of autism in babies and small children. If parents observe that their child is not showing typical development for his or her age (such as delayed speech for their age, lack of interest in socializing with peers or family, plays in unusual ways), they may notify their doctor. When a doctor suspects that a child may have autism, he or she will consult with a team of experts to determine whether the child has autism through a series of tests and evaluations.

 

How Is Autism Spectrum Disorder Treated?

There is no cure for autism, but treatment can make an enormous difference. The younger kids are once they start treatment, the better their chances at managing the disorder and leading productive, successful lives. Doctors, therapists, and special education teachers and tutors can help kids learn to speak, play, and learn. Therapists can also help kids with their studies, building relationships, and socialization.

How to Teach Students With Autism Spectrum Disorder?

BE VISUAL. Visual aids can help students with ASD in a wide range of areas—from understanding rules to explaining social situations.

 

CREATE STRUCTURE. Routines are especially important for students who require a tight structure. Students on the spectrum can benefit from a personal daily schedule with built-in visuals.

 

GET SOCIAL THROUGH STORIES. Difficulty with social skills is one of the most known struggles of children with ASD. Using “social stories” for social learning and understanding can help guide students through interactions with peers and teach social norms.

 

KEEP IT SIMPLE. Many students struggle with following complicated directions, not only children who are on the spectrum. Even more so when a student is having trouble with oral language processing, as is the case for many children on the spectrum.

 

INCLUDE SENSORY ACTIVITIES. Most children who are on the spectrum are over-or under-reactive to sensory stimuli.

Autism Spectrum Disorders

TAKE A BREAK. Sometimes students need a quiet place to retreat.

 

PARENTS KNOW THEIR CHILD BEST. Parents of youngsters on the spectrum can provide valuable insight into a child’s routines, triggers, and the reasons behind behaviors.

 

CREATE A CULTURE OF UNDERSTANDING. Having honest conversations about autism with all students will help educate them about the disorder. It will also teach other children how to best approach and interact with a peer who is on the spectrum.

 

TREAT THEM AS CHILDREN FIRSTWe must not forget the fact that children with ASD are exceptional individuals. They are, above all, children. Treat them as you would any other student: explore their interests, give them opportunities to demonstrate their talents and abilities, provide support as needed, and celebrate their success and accomplishments.

How Can Themba Tutors’ Autism Spectrum Disorder Tutoring Help you?

 

Autism spectrum disorder tutoring is different from tutoring other class subjects because it is more inclusive. It provides a more direct one-on-one approach that may be lacking in your child’s curriculum and accommodates ASD-related difficulties that hinder his or her ability to learn.

 

However, despite incredible advances in special education services, many children are still unable to receive all of the assistance they require to achieve the success in school and later life. So it’s not a surprise that many parents are turning to one-on-one autism spectrum disorder tutoring to make sure their children are equipped with the right skills and knowledge needed for academic success.

 

At Themba Tutors, our autism spectrum disorder tutors are all experts in special education. We understand that children with autism are individuals, which means we put importance on creating a tutoring plan that is tailored to their unique needs rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Our main goal is to help your child achieve academic success that may not be possible without the focus and attention they require. We collaborate with learning specialists, doctors, and parents to customize a tutoring plan that will give your child the results you’re looking for. We believe that every student and individual can reach great skills and goals with proper guidance and teaching strategies. 

 
We know that learning becomes especially difficult for a child with an autism spectrum disorder. Hence, we are here to work with you to ensure that your child’s specific needs are addressed and provide solutions and strategies. We recognize that students with autism spectrum disorder and other learning disorders have great intellectual capabilities, and all they need is proper tutoring. At Themba Tutors, we realize that students with autism spectrum disorder often need to work on specific problems one step at a time. Our tutors will set up specific tasks related to a larger goal.
