    I cannot express how grateful and rewarding my experience with Brooklyn Letters has been. Her tutor Ms. Daria is so knowledgeable, amazing, kind and awesome.

    Christina was absolutely wonderful. She went out of her way to win my son over and it worked. He looked forward to her visits and his speech improved so much under her care. She was super flexible and it’s clear she truly cares. We adore … More Christina and we’re going to miss her. Almost sad he improved so much!

    We could not be happier with the services Valerie provided! She is very thoughtful and knowledgeable and provided significant guidance to support our daughter's speech development outside of our scheduled sessions. She established … More a great working relationship with her, and she will definitely be missed! Your business model is amazing and it was an absolute pleasure working with Valerie. I've referred your organization and Valerie to the Executive Director of our daughter's school and friends/colleagues who are in need of speech therapy services.

    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. If my daughter's doctors want … More to see more progress at her next appointment, I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to Samantha again.

    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 ★★★★★ 2 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 ★★★★★ 2 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 ★★★★★ 2 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 ★★★★★ 2 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. 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.

    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 Executive Functioning Coaching?

 What does an executive function coach do? Themba Tutors offers a pragmatic and straightforward approach for Organizational & Executive Functioning Coaching.


Executive functioning skills are usually first developed in early childhood to teen years and continue into the mid-20s. In some instances, younger children may lag behind their peers for a while in terms of mastering executive functioning skills. But as they get older, they may encounter fewer challenges as teens and young adults. However, without proper development of executive functioning skills, adults and professionals may struggle to meet some demands in their careers and personal lives. Preparing for college is one of the most challenging times in a student’s life, but also a very rewarding one as well. To have a much better perspective of what you need to do and how you can achieve your goals, you need to learn some essential college readiness guidelines and skills.

Whether the student is struggling in a number of subjects due to his or her inability to manage time, or the student has great grades but could be a bit more organized, we have the right executive functioning coaching and study skills tutoring program to help your child succeed.  Learn how executive function coaching prepare students for college. Check out the list of executive functioning skills that college students have trouble with and learn how Themba Tutors executive functioning coaches can help college students.

Here’s What You Need To Know: What Is Executive Functioning?


Who Benefits from Executive Functioning Coaching?

Themba Tutors’ executive function coaching is designed to help adults and professionals, who are struggling to manage daily life demands due to ADHD, diagnosed executive functioning deficits, or other learning differences. We also coach adults and professionals who did not receive a formal diagnosis. For many of these individuals, executive functioning struggles often lead to frustration and feeling discouraged or inadequate. This is especially true when their challenges are perceived as laziness. Learn who is an executive functioning coach, and how can they help your family?


Most of the clients we work with are very bright but haven’t been taught the tools and strategies required to succeed.  This is of particular note, as according to according to renowned Stanford psychologist and author Carol Dweck, it’s not always intelligence, talent, or education that determines how far you will go in life. In fact, achieving your goals and reaching your objectives mostly rely on one thing–your mindset. In particular, having a growth mindset. Read our blog Carol Dweck’s Fixed and Growth Mindset: How You Think Can Determine Your Success to know more about mindsetting and how to develop a growth mindset.


Our executive function coaching provides the encouragement, strategies, and insight they need to become more effective and confident in their daily personal and professional lives. Learn all the things (financial, health, career) you should’ve learned in school.

Strategies to Improve:

Our executive function coaches and tutors help adults and professionals perform better in their work environment. Putting their strengths to best use is one of the things we aim to achieve. Our specialists will help you work around challenges and find ways to overcome difficulties through proper adult coaching for executive functioning skills.


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 an 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. This Senior Boot Camp (College Readiness – Preparation For The Future) will assist and help you focus on things like decision-making. Have you ever heard of gateway habits? Gateway habits are small changes in behavior that can lead to the development of other healthy (or unhealthy) habits. They are known to have a profound effect on decision-making. Check out the 4 principles of behavior change.


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 Success, being 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. Learn what atomic habits are and five ways to build good habits. Are you ready to get rid of the bad habits holding you back? Here are five ways you can break your bad habits.

My son is gradually letting go of his resistance and gaining an understanding of how Alissa can best support him. Alissa is terrific, so patient, and skilled. We are very grateful to have found her!

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.

Alex is awesome with both of my sons! He is wonderful and caring. Alex has been extremely successful in teaching my sons for how to approach studying and making them much more efficient, successful and, most importantly,  more confident with their abilities! Thank you for your wonderful services!!!


-Carmen Seleme McDermott     

So far, Aaron is doing much better. it’s a slow process but he’s heading in the right direction. I think he is realizing his “weaknesses.” He’s trying to get more organized and focused so that he prioritizes his work accordingly. Thank you for helping Aaron so that he has a much smoother end of the school year; he would have been lost otherwise.



The sessions with Rhia are going great! We’ve been doing some really important foundational work and it feels like every week I’m getting closer to my overall goals. Challenging at times but very rewarding. Rhia is great coach and I look forward to speaking with her every week. I could go on but I’ll just sum it up by saying that it’s all very positive on my end

-P. A. 

Brian is a fantastic executive functioning coach. Super helpful, flexible with hours, and tailored the experience to our needs.


-Eric Fingerman     

We are parents of a bright college age son who, despite his intelligence, has struggled academically because of ADHD and executive functioning challenges. After a very difficult first three semesters at college, which deeply affected his confidence and self esteem, our son left school and for years was too discouraged to return, fearful of more failure. We reached out to Themba Tutors to recommend someone who could give him the support and encouragement he needed to return to school, and was referred to Jordan W. We could not have been happier with that referral. We had no idea whether our son would be willing to work with him, but Jordan’s warm and engaging nature won him over. With Jordan’s support, guidance and encouragement, our son went back to college! He is still a work in progress and has many challenges ahead, but we are, and will always be, grateful for Jordan’s kind and caring nature, intelligence and extraordinary patience in helping our son move forward. Thank you Jordan and thank you Themba Tutors.
