    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!

    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!

    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.

    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. She offered great advice and useful strategies that helped our son become … More a more successful student. We are using Themba tutors again this year for our daughter. 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.


Feeling Thermometer

Have you ever felt like you couldn’t quite put your finger on the intensity of your emotions? Maybe you knew you were stressed but not exactly how stressed. Alternatively, you were excited but unsure if you were mildly enthused or over the moon. Feelings can be murky, hard to pin down things. That is where a feeling thermometer comes in.

A feeling thermometer is a simple tool to identify and quantify the intensity of your emotions. With just a 1 to 5 or 1 to 10 scale, you can quickly read your emotional temperature and gain insight into the ebbs and flows of your feelings. Using a feeling thermometer is like taking your vibrant pulse – it gives you a sense of your current state so you can make better choices about caring for yourself. It is a straightforward but incredibly useful technique if you want to strengthen your emotional awareness and regulation.

Curious to give it a try? Here is how a basic feeling thermometer works and how you can use one to tune in to your emotions.


What Is a Feeling Thermometer?

A feeling thermometer is a tool used to measure your emotional state and intensity of feelings. It allows you to assign a number to your emotions, similar to a pain scale.

The feeling thermometer typically ranges from 0 to 10, where 0 means you feel no emotion and 10 means you feel extreme emotion. As your feelings increase in intensity, the number goes up. For example, a 2 might be slight annoyance, a 5 moderate anxiety, and an 8 intense joy.

A feeling thermometer gives you insight into the intensity of your feelings so you can determine if they seem appropriate for the situation. Having this knowledge is the first step to developing emotional regulation and coping strategies.

To use a feeling thermometer, check in with yourself when you start to feel an emotional reaction. Ask yourself, “What number on the scale best represents how I feel right now?” There is no “right” answer; go with what feels accurate. Write the number down to help strengthen your awareness over time.

With regular practice, the feeling thermometer can become second nature. You’ll better identify your feelings and spot patterns in your emotional responses. And the simple act of rating your feelings helps you feel calmer and more in control.

Try the feeling thermometer and see if it helps bring more insight and awareness into your emotional life. Even small steps to understand your feelings better can go a long way toward well-being and happiness.

How Feeling Thermometers Measure Your Emotions

A feeling thermometer is a tool used to measure your emotional arousal and intensity. It allows you to assign a number to your emotions, giving you awareness and insight into your feelings.

To use a feeling thermometer, you must determine the emotion you want to measure, like anger, joy, or anxiety. Then, imagine a scale from 0 to 100, with 0 meaning you feel no emotion at all and 100 indicating the highest intensity of that emotion you can imagine.

Ask yourself where on that scale your current emotion lies. Your irritation level may be around 50 after a frustrating commute. Alternatively, your enthusiasm is up approximately 80 because you aced an exam. Write the number down and take note of the date and time.

Over days or weeks, track your readings to identify patterns. Are there certain times of day or activities that tend to raise or lower your numbers? Spotting these trends can help you gain valuable self-knowledge and better choices for your well-being.

The key is, to be honest with yourself. Don’t pick a number because it is what you think it “should” be or because you are in denial about the depth of your feelings. A feeling thermometer only works if you are willing to face the truth about your emotional state.

If you use a feeling thermometer regularly, it will not only help you increase your emotional intelligence; it will also give you the proper skills to understand and control your emotions and feelings better.

Using a Feeling Thermometer to Improve Your Self-Awareness

A feeling thermometer is a tool used to help build your emotional intelligence by increasing your self-awareness. This simple technique can help you better understand your feelings and reactions in different situations.

To start, consider your feeling thermometer a temperature gauge that measures your emotions on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is the lowest intensity, and 10 is the highest. When you experience an emotional reaction to something, stop and take a moment to locate where it falls on your inner thermometer. Ask yourself, “How strong is this feeling?” and give it a number.

For example, if someone cuts you off in traffic and you feel slightly annoyed, that may register around a 3 or 4 on your feeling thermometer. If you get a big job promotion and feel extremely joyful and excited, that emotion may rank higher at an 8 or 9.

Labeling the intensity of your feelings helps you develop a vocabulary for your emotional experiences. The more you practice, the more awareness you will gain into what triggers certain reactions and how strongly you feel them.

Some benefits of using a feeling thermometer include:

  • Improved emotional regulation. Recognizing how strongly you feel an emotion can help you manage your reaction in a balanced way.
  • Better communication. You’ll get better at articulating your feelings to others constructively.
  • Valuable self-reflection. Getting a better understanding of how your emotions work and what are the things that trigger them will help you build habits to grow your personality.
  • Healthier relationships. Understanding your emotions will help you understand and connect with the people around you more.

Like anything new, it takes patience, time, and practice to get used to a feeling thermometer. Starting slow and small is always a good way to start a new habit.
