    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 ★★★★★ a year 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 ★★★★★ a year 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 ★★★★★ a year 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. 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!!

    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.

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.

    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 Earth Science?

Our learning specialists and academic tutors provide 1:1 individualized tutoring in Earth Science for high school and college students.


Earth Science is the study of Earth, its waters, composition, the air that surrounds it, as well as objects in space. Earth science has four main areas of study, namely geology, meteorology, oceanography, and astronomy. These branches aim to understand our planet’s present features and evolution to improve human lives, the environment, and our existence.
Earth science is an exciting subject with varied practical applications. For one, earth scientists use their knowledge and skills to find and develop energy sources and minerals. Others observe and investigate how human activity affects our planet, while some devote their research to find better and more effective ways to protect the environment. Earth scientists also study and gather information about environmental and natural planetary events, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and hurricanes. By doing so, they are able to prevent catastrophes and plan communities that are protected against natural disasters and calamities.


The Importance of Earth Science


The knowledge, skills, and information acquired by earth scientists through their studies are crucial in mankind’s quest to thrive in different environmentsUnderstanding the structure of the earth’s crust, stratigraphy (rock formations and layers), and chemical compositions aid us in finding resources to sustain and improve our quality of lifeEarth scientists use their knowledge and skills to ensure a safe supply of clean water, search for oil, gas, and coal, explore and document the oceans, monitor extreme weather, discover the materials we need to create safe structures and roadways and figure out which minerals and nutrients found in the soil make it suitable for farming.

What Are the Four Earth Sciences?

Many different sciences are used to learn about Earth. However, the four basic Earth science study areas are geology, meteorology, oceanography, and astronomy.


Geology: Science of the Earth


Literally translating to “the study of the Earth,” geology is the primary earth science that investigates the composition of Earth’s materials, structures, and processes. This includes studying the organisms that live on the planet and finding out how life and the planet have changed over time. Geologists are responsible for searching for fuels and minerals, studying environmental and natural hazards, and protecting the environment.


Meteorology: Science of the Atmosphere


Meteorology studies and observes how atmospheric processes determine the planet’s weather and climate. The fact that weather and climate play a significant role in our daily lives, activities, and overall livability of our environment makes meteorology a very practical science. Today, climate change is a very real and urgent concern, and the study of meteorology is of critical importance in mitigating the effects of global warming.

Oceanography: Science of the Oceans


Oceanography is the study of Earth’s oceans, including their composition, movement, organisms, and processes. The majority of our planet is covered by oceans, and they are an important source of food, energy, and other raw materials. Oceans also influence weather and affect climate change. One of the primary goals of oceanographers is to find ways to develop the ocean as a sustainable resource while minimizing the impact of human activity.


Astronomy: Science of the Universe


Astronomy is the study of the universe, and our knowledge of astronomy is essential to understanding Earth. Astronomers can also use knowledge of Earth materials, processes, and history to understand other planets – even those outside of our own solar system.

Here are some helpful lecture videos with hands-on, interactive problem solving for all levels of science for ages 10 and up to master essential skills.
