Themba Tutors – Offering One-on-One Support in Biology for High School and College Students
STEM is the acronym for the combined subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths, and it is a popular approach in the New York public school system. Each discipline is interlinked with one another to form a well-rounded and comprehensive learning model.
Science is one of the pillars of STEM and mastering it is key to the student’s academic development. If your child is behind where he or she should be in any of the sciences of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, or Environmental Science, and the problem is not addressed, it can disengage the student with the subject and halt progress.
There are a variety of reasons why a student may fall behind in science, such as a period of illness, the way the subject is being taught, or even an inability to grasp a particular element of his or her studies. Whatever the reason for the struggles, one-on-one customized extra support can be extremely helpful, and at Themba Tutors we can provide it in the comfort of your home or child’s school.
One-on-One Biology Tutoring
Not everyone thrives in a group classroom for various reasons. With increased work loads, students can also be overwhelmed with keeping up with pace in their learning. Also, the teaching strategies in a group environment must be broad in scope as to attempt to cater to a broad range of abilities. This can mean that some of the students in the group do not receive the proper methods or attention in their class to fully grasp what is being taught.
At Themba Tutors, our tutoring services are tailored to the exact needs of the individual student and we address any gaps that exist in his or her studies. Our experienced tutors are able to ascertain exactly which strategies and learning methods work best for your child. We also communicate directly with you about what we are working on, keeping you in the loop with what your child needs to master.
Who We Help
Our science tutoring can be enjoyed by students from high school through college, offering the appropriate level of assistance. Our science content specialists focus on helping students in high school and college in Biology. These services we provide cater to those enrolled in the STEM approach, but also to those private school and college students who do not adhere to STEM principles. Regardless of your child’s curriculum, we are masters at science content and can tweak the content so that it is digestible for all students with various learning profiles.
High School – At this advanced level, students in 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades can either be tutored on an Advance Placement (AP) or Regents level in Biology.
College – The benefits of one-on-one home tutoring does not have to stop once college starts, as there is still much to be gained by undergraduate students who need help in achieving the necessary grades in the required sciences.
Suffice it to say that at any stage during schooling, our tutoring services are geared toward helping students master content, study for examinations, and for teaching them techniques which are ubiquitous to healthy learning.
A Friendly Mentoring Approach
All of our tutors are experienced and adept at identifying the best ways to engage your child in science and in assisting in the absorption of the concepts in a fun and stimulating way. The social connection is the first and most important step to help engage students. We understand that no two students are the same, so we use a friendly, flexible approach that is tailored to the strengths and weaknesses of each particular student. At Themba, we also want to know what interests your child, and how we can best engage their active learning.
Our staff is fully invested in driving your child to achieve academic success. So, if your son or daughter is struggling in science and experiencing the fear and demoralising effects this can cause, talk to us and we can provide you with all you need to know to start on the journey to meeting your child’s educational needs. We can start tutoring your child immediately.

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.
