    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.

  • 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.
  • Avatar Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    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.

  • 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.

    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.

College coursework can be challenging, and writing assignments can be especially daunting. Whether you’re struggling with grammar, sentence structure, or organizing your ideas, working with a writing coach can transform your coursework and help you achieve academic success.

Here’s how a college academic writing coach can help:

Identifying Weaknesses

A college academic writing coach can help you identify your writing weaknesses and provide guidance on how to improve them. With targeted support and personalized feedback, a coach can help you become a more effective writer and achieve your academic goals.

Understanding Assignment Criteria

Understanding what an assignment is asking for is crucial to success. A college academic writing coach can help you analyze assignment criteria and provide guidance on how to meet your instructor’s expectations. With a better understanding of what’s required, you can approach your writing assignments more confidently and clearly.

Structuring Your Paper

When it comes to writing academic papers, the structure is key. A well-structured paper helps to communicate your ideas in a clear and organized manner, making it easier for your audience to understand and engage with your work. However, many students need help structuring their papers, often leading to confusion and a lack of clarity.

This is where a college academic writing coach can be invaluable. A coach can help you develop a clear and concise structure for your paper that effectively communicates your ideas to your audience. Here are some of the ways that a college academic writing coach can help you structure your paper:

  1. Creating an Outline – Creating an outline is an important first step in structuring your paper. An outline helps you organize your ideas and ensures that your paper flows logically from one point to the next. A college academic writing coach can help you create an effective outline by providing guidance on grouping your ideas and organizing your thoughts clearly and concisely.
  2. Developing a Thesis Statement – Your thesis statement is the main idea or argument you will present in your paper. Developing a strong thesis statement that clearly communicates your position on the topic is important. A college academic writing coach can help you develop an effective thesis statement by guiding you through the process of refining your ideas and crafting a clear and concise statement.
  3. Organizing Your Paragraphs – Each paragraph in your paper should have a clear purpose and contribute to your overall argument. A college academic writing coach can help you organize your paragraphs effectively by providing guidance on structuring your ideas and ensuring that each paragraph flows logically from one to the next.
  4. Using Effective Transitions – Transitions are words or phrases that connect your ideas and help to create a sense of coherence and unity in your paper. A college academic writing coach can help you use effective transitions by providing guidance on using them appropriately and ensuring that your paper flows smoothly from one idea to the next.

In conclusion, structuring your paper is essential to effective communication, and a writing coach can help you develop the tools you need to create a well-structured paper. Whether creating an outline, developing a thesis statement, organizing your paragraphs, or using effective transitions, a college academic writing coach can provide the guidance you need to succeed in your academic writing.

Editing and Refining

Editing and refining your work is an important part of the writing process. A college academic writing coach can help you develop editing skills and provide feedback on your work to help you improve the quality of your writing. With the guidance of a college academic writing coach, you can learn to edit your work effectively and refine your writing to meet the highest standards.

Time Management Strategies

It can be hectic in college, so time management skills are essential for success. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and fall behind with many tasks to complete and deadlines to remember. You can manage your workload and accomplish your writing goals by developing efficient time management techniques with the aid of a college academic writing coach.

Here are some methods a college academic writing coach can find useful:

  • Making a Schedule: A college academic writing coach can assist you in making a schedule that considers all of your assignments, due dates, and other commitments. You can prevent feeling overwhelmed and stay on track by dividing your workload into manageable portions.
  • Setting Realistic Goals: A key component of efficient time management is setting realistic goals. Setting attainable goals will help you advance with your writing assignments without getting bogged down, and a writing coach can assist you in doing this.
  • Assignment Breakdown: Assignment breakdown into smaller tasks is another efficient time management technique. You can stay organized and focused by breaking down your assignments into smaller, more manageable tasks with the aid of a writing coach.
  • Prioritizing Tasks: Time management success depends on your ability to prioritize your tasks. You can make the most of your time and prevent procrastination by having a writing coach help you prioritize your tasks according to their urgency and importance.
  • Avoiding Distractions: Avoiding distractions is important for good time management. A college academic writing coach can offer advice on how to put aside outside distractions and maintain concentration while working on writing assignments.

A college academic writing coach can provide the guidance and inspiration you need to manage your workload and achieve your writing goals. Time management skills are essential for succeeding in college. Making a schedule, deciding on reasonable goals, breaking down assignments, establishing priorities, and staying away from distractions are ways to develop the skills required to succeed in your coursework and beyond.

With the support of a college academic writing coach, you can transform your coursework, become a more effective writer, and achieve academic success.

TESTIMONIALS

My son got to a point in his writing where he just hit a wall with brainstorming. He needed some extra 1:1 time outside of school with someone who could handle the executive functions aspect, the anxiety piece, the extra time/silence my son sometimes needed, and the warmth and creativity that is his native space. Jake was beyond perfect. I just couldn’t have dreamt up a better fit. In addition, he documented his process, what was working with my son, so that I have a collection of emails to look back on when I need reminding about how to help my son when he’s feeling stuck – which is now very seldom. If I had five thumbs, they’d all be up. So I’ll just say, 5 stars! Thank you, Jakek and thank you, Themba Tutors. (By the way, this was affordable, to boot.)

-Micaela B.

Alex’s services were of great help and support to me, especially when it came to keeping my feet on the ground and giving suggested methods to further improve my college experience.

-Ashoka Z.

We were happy with Michelle’s services and Alara had a good year overall – her organizational skills improved and she showed nice progress in reading and writing. Michelle and her teachers were a key part in helping to make this happen, so much appreciated. Michelle worked very well with Alara and we appreciate it!

–Mark Salierno

Victoria is a superb tutor. She helped my high school age daughter with her writing. Victoria’s skills as a tutor, as well as her sense of humor and her engaging personality went a long way with my daughter.
