    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020.

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!

    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!)

  • 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.

    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.

What is Calculus?

Calculus is a branch of mathematics that studies the rates of change. It was first invented in the 17th century by Isaac Newton, followed by Gottfried Leibniz, who created the notations that are still in use today.
Before calculus was developed, mathematics only dealt with static calculations. This means calculations were only possible if an object is not in motion or perfectly still. But the universe is constantly moving, and the inability to measure, determine, and account for these changes presents challenges. Calculus was instrumental in determining the changes in particles, stars, and matter as they move and change in real time.
Calculus is divided into two types. Differential calculus studies and determines the rate of change a quantity. Meanwhile, integral calculus deals with finding the quantity when the rate of change is known.
Just like most advanced mathematics courses, students often complain about the lack of real-world applications of calculus. But this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Aside from astronomy and space travel, calculus is used in a wide variety of fields, including ones that people don’t normally expect. This includes statistics, economics, engineering, physics, and even medicine, which uses calculus to figure out how the body interacts and reacts to medications. Here are 9 useful study techniques for excelling in Calculus.


What Are the Problems Students Face When Studying Calculus?


  • Lack of foundational skills and preparation in the primary and secondary levels
  • Wrong teaching methods 
  • Bad math teachers. It can demotivate students in the study of mathematics.
  • Misunderstanding concepts, principles, and properties of mathematics, which leads to a lack of interest in the subject
  • Not enough time spent practicing and studying
  • Lack of time and resources for teachers to answer each question or focus on every student in class
  • Using books that do not meet the needs for teaching math
  • Weak understanding of functions, which causes difficulty in understanding calculus.


What Is the Best Way to Excel in Calculus?


  • Develop an effective and time-efficient homework/study strategy for your calculus class and other classes. This will assist you in becoming a more confident, successful, and well-rounded student. It will cause a healthier balance between the time spent studying and for leisure.

  • Have patience and willingness to learn and understand the subject. Calculus requires students to devote enough time and effort.

Jordan tutored our son in 7th grade math. We had a wonderful experience with Jordan. He was knowledgeable, always on time, and came up with some good strategies for our son to tackle difficult math concepts. Our son has a nonverbal learning disability so working with him can be somewhat challenging at times. But Jordan was always up to the task!


-Anne S.   

My son has been working with Jeffrey for math tutoring with brilliant results. Jeffrey helped reinforce the lessons from class, helping him build confidence and perseverance. Jeffrey worked diligently to prepare for each session by making sure he was aware of what material my son was covering each week. Jeffrey would arrive for sessions with problem sheets they could work from to strengthen his skills. He was always very patient, reassuring, and encouraging. While at the same time, he pushed Oliver toward mastery of the material. In six months, my son began to see himself as a capable, successful math student.


-Sara Baysinger       

My experience with Themba Tutors was awesome. When I was introduced to the service I told them my needs and based on that they set me up with a range of tutors to choose from. I chose to work with Paul who was the best tutor that I have ever worked with. I was studying for the New Jersey state teacher exam there was a number of subject areas that I had to study and one of them was math. Paul helped me understand the math on the test . He explained it to me in away that made it easy and he gave me tools to practice on my own. In addition to helping me with math skills he gave wonderful study tips and tricks to use to help me study the material that I had to learn. Paul was a pleasure to work with and O thank him for helping me pass the test
