    We could not be happier with the services Valerie provided!

    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.

    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.
  • 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.

    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.

As a therapist myself, I now regularly recommend Themba to my patients. A much needed and well provided service to the community!!

    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 Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is one of the most pervasive learning disabilities that can cause problems with reading, writing, and spelling. While the exact causes of dyslexia remain unknown, studies have shown that people who struggle with reading typically have weak cognitive skills. Cognitive skills are the brain’s fundamental skills that play a crucial role in reasoning, reading, learning, remembering, and paying attention. Dyslexia literally means “bad language” and many scientists argue that it’s a type of language disorder that specifically interrupts how individuals decode and spell unfamiliar words.
Research has shown that more often than not, people with dyslexia have weaknesses in one or more cognitive skills, including working memory, executive function, and attention. Discover some remarkable assistive technologies designed to support dyslexic individuals, making learning and daily life more accessible and enjoyable.

The True Gifts of a Dyslexic Mind

Dyslexia Symptoms


A wide range of behaviors or symptoms are associated with dyslexia and can vary depending on the individual’s age (pre-school, elementary, teens, and adults). In older children, teens, and adults with dyslexia, the most common ones include:

  • Difficulties in reading (including reading aloud), writing, and spelling
  • Issues with reading comprehension
  • Avoiding activities that involve reading
  • Problems in word-retrieval and pronunciation
  • Struggling to “get” jokes or understand expressions
  • Difficulties learning a new language and doing math problems
  • Taking too long to complete a writing or reading-related tasks
  • Trouble memorizing or summarizing stories

What Does Dyslexia Look Like in Adults?

When we hear the term dyslexia, we often relate it to difficulties with reading and writing. And while dyslexia mainly affects these skills in an children and adults, it can have a wider impact on learning. The most common signs of dyslexia involve difficulties in processing information and organization. It can also manifest differently for every individual.


For adults with dyslexia, it is often a challenge to:

  • Do math concepts
  • Manage time and meet deadlines
  • Memorize facts and other details like phone numbers
  • Take good notes
  • Write essays and reports


And you may find that:

  •  You avoid reading and writing activities
  • You feel like the right word is on the tip of your tongue, but you can’t get at it
  • You struggle to complete office work that involves repeating the same tasks
  • You sometimes struggle with reading comprehension
  • You get anxious or use lots of fillers, like “uh and um,” when you talk
  • You know a lot about a topic, but you can’t seem to put what you know into words or writing
  • You overreact to your mistakes or get easily affected by stress
  • You avoid meetings or discussions that involve extensive planning
  • You prefer to learn visually or with your hands than read instructions

Adults experiencing dyslexia might not have been diagnosed earlier due to lifelong experiences with the condition. Unique challenges confront adults with dyslexia, differing from those encountered by younger individuals with the same condition. Discover effective coaching strategies for adults with dyslexia

How Does Dyslexia Affect Your Self-Esteem?

For children and adults, the feeling of being left behind by their peers can take a toll on their confidence and self-esteem. And while dyslexia is neither a medical problem nor related to intelligence, dealing with an undiagnosed learning difference can lead to self-doubt. If unaddressed, this can have a lasting effect and continue well into adulthood.


Dyslexia can make accomplishing certain tasks more difficult. If you are unaware that you have dyslexia, these struggles can make you feel that you’re not good enough or as smart as your peers. These negative thoughts and experiences can lead to limiting self-beliefs that can affect your personal and professional lives. It’s important for individuals with dyslexia to understand that their condition doesn’t define who they are nor does it determine their chances of success in life. Learn all the things (financial, health, career) you should’ve learned in school.


As renowned Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck states, a person’s success relies mostly on the mindset he or she adopts. In particular, having a growth mindset–the belief that the qualities and characteristics you are born with are not set in stone, and in fact, can be further improved and developed–is ultimately what determines how far you will go in life. To learn more about the growth mindset, read our blog Carol Dweck’s Fixed and Growth Mindset: How You Think Can Determine Your Success.

How Does Dyslexia Affect You at Work?

If you have been struggling with undiagnosed dyslexia all your life, it can be difficult to build up the confidence and skills you need to become successful in your chosen career. For some adults with dyslexia, the mere process of job-hunting and application is already too big of a hurdle to overcome.


In the workplace, you may find that you are more prone to getting overwhelmed or stressed out by certain tasks and projects. It may be difficult for you to focus on tasks, plan, or manage your schedule. All these can hold you back from achieving your professional goals.


That said, having dyslexia does not mean you cannot have a successful career or fruitful life. With the right support, you can learn skills and strategies that will help make dyslexia manageable.



Goal-setting, in particular, is an action  that requires more than selecting an objective or desired result. According to author James Clear, goal-setting involves not only honing in on a target but also identifying the steps to achieve them and asking yourself what sacrifices, changes and responsibilities you are willing to do to reach your objective. Clear writes more about the process of goal-setting in his article Goal-Setting: A Scientific Guide to Setting and Achieving Goals, where he discusses how to set achievable goals, how to measure them, and how to be consistent.



Contrary to what most of us may believe, sound decision-making skills have nothing to do with intelligence. According to The Science of Decision Making: Why Smart People Do Dumb Things, for many, decision-making depends on one’s personal beliefs and the beliefs of those around them–particularly of people in their community whose opinions they value. Hence, in many instances, our decisions are not based on rationality but on whether they align with our peers’ and community’s beliefs. Unfortunately, this does not always mean it’s the right decision or lead to the right results. Working with a dyslexia tutor or executive functioning coach allows individuals to learn positive decision-making styles that is based on rationality (intuitive vs rational),  yielding optimal results (maximizing vs satisficing), and whether the objective is clear or undefined (combinatorial vs positional) using the DECIDE (Determine, Establish, Consider, Identify, Develop, Evaluate) framework of decision-making.


Accountability Partner

Achieving your goal won’t be possible without accountability. Goals require you to identify what costs you’re willing to pay and what sacrifices you’re ready to make to achieve them, but without accountability, you are more likely to go off-track and lose sight of your objective. According to the article Why An Accountability Partner Will Increase Your Chances of Successbeing specific with your goals and firmly committing to it increases your chances from 10 percent to 25 percent.  When you extend this commitment with someone  whom you can trust to hold you responsible, your likelihood of success is at 65 percent. But when you and your partner create specific accountability plans, your chances of success rises to 95 percent. More than just your sounding board, your accountability partner is someone who can guide, coach, and help you stick to your commitments and encourage you to persevere despite unforeseen hurdles. An accountability partner is of great importance as you build positive values, develop good study and work habits,  and strengthen your decision-making and goal-setting skills.

How Can Dyslexia Tutors Coaches for Adults Help?

Dyslexia is one of the most common learning disabilities, but it often goes undetected. Most adults with dyslexia have had it since childhood but have not received any diagnosis or treatment. The condition can also manifest differently in adults than in children or students with dyslexia. Adult dyslexia coaching is a service that offers a customized approach that teaches you how to manage dyslexia and how to regain control of your life.


If you feel like you have dyslexia but aren’t sure, we can recommend psychologists who can make this determination for you. Dyslexia is not a medical problem, but you can ask doctors for advice on where and how to get tested.


There is no cure for dyslexia. But with proper testing and diagnosis, followed by hard work and support, people with dyslexia can be highly successful in life. Once you have been properly diagnosed, adult coaching for adults with dyslexia will help you acquire skills and strategies to manage your condition. An individualized and effective coaching strategy can be designed for you.
