    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!
  • Executive Functioning,Organizational Coaches Tutors College Students Adults, Themba Tutors carolina luttmann ★★★★★ 7 months 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!

  • Executive Functioning,Organizational Coaches Tutors College Students Adults, Themba Tutors 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.

  • Executive Functioning,Organizational Coaches Tutors College Students Adults, Themba Tutors 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.
  • Executive Functioning,Organizational Coaches Tutors College Students Adults, Themba Tutors Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ a year 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.
  • Executive Functioning,Organizational Coaches Tutors College Students Adults, Themba Tutors 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.

    I'm so glad we were referred to Themba Tutors. After a great initial conversation to learn our needs, we were connected with an excellent tutor, Felicia, who is helping our high school daughter learn better organizational and executive … More skills. Highly recommended.
  • Executive Functioning,Organizational Coaches Tutors College Students Adults, Themba Tutors Fara Jones ★★★★★ 3 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!!

    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.
  • Executive Functioning,Organizational Coaches Tutors College Students Adults, Themba Tutors Monica Alzate ★★★★★ 2 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.

What Is Executive Functioning Coaching?

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.

Executive functioning is responsible for many skills, including:

Paying attention

Organizing, planning, and prioritizing

Starting and finishing the assigned tasks

Understanding different points of view

Regulating emotions

Self-monitoring (keeping track of what you’re doing)

Executive function skills are what we call self-management abilities that help people achieve goals. These skills are crucial to meet the challenges of ever-increasing school, work, and life demands in a timely and effective manner. People must manage their emotions and attention, organize, plan, critique their work, and revise their strategies as circumstances change.

The goal of executive functioning coaching is to teach adults and professionals these skills, develop them effectively, and apply them to navigate their career and personal responsibilities successfully. Executive functioning coaches will use real-life situations typically encountered at home, at work, and in other professional or social settings as vehicles to build these executive function skills.

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.

 

Most of the clients we work with are very bright but haven’t been taught the tools and strategies required to succeed. 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.

Our Coaches and Tutors Can Help Overcome These Challenges:

 

  • Trouble starting and/or completing tasks
  • Difficulty prioritizing tasks
  • Forgetting what was just heard or read
  • Trouble following directions or a sequence of steps given to them
  • Panicking when rules or routines change
  • Trouble changing and shifting focus from one task to another
  • Getting overly emotional and fixated on things
  • Trouble organizing their thoughts into words and ideas
  • Trouble keeping track of their belongings
  • Trouble managing their time

 

Clients themselves are not the only ones getting the benefits of executive function coaching. Partners and family members often tell us that household friction is reduced with coaching in place. Teachers and colleagues also report positive shifts in individuals who receive our coaching service.
