    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020.

    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.

    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 ★★★★★ 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.

    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.

TESTIMONIALS

My experience with Themba Tutors was awesome. When I was introduced to the service, I told them my needs, and based on that, they set me up with a range of tutors to choose from. I decided to work with Paul, the best tutor I have ever worked with. I was studying for the New Jersey state teacher exam. I had to research several subject areas, one of which was math. Paul helped me understand the math on the test. He explained it to me in a way that made it easy and gave me tools to practice independently. In addition to helping me with math skills, he gave wonderful study tips and tricks to help me study the material I had to learn. Paul was a pleasure to work with, and thank him for helping me pass the test.

 

-Esther B.

Paul at Themba has been an exceptional tutor for my son, both in 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 Paul.

 

-Michael Birnbaum

My son has been working with Jeffrey for math tutoring with brilliant results. Jeffrey helped reinforce the lessons from class, helping him build confidence and perseverance. Jeffrey worked diligently to prepare for each session by ensuring he knew what material my son covered each week. Jeffrey would arrive for sessions with problem sheets they could work from to strengthen his skills. He was always very patient, reassuring, and encouraging. At the same time, he pushes Oliver toward mastery of the material. In six months, my son began to see himself as a capable, successful math student.

 

-Sara Baysinger

This company is great at finding awesome learning specialists who work with kids of all ages and use multisensory techniques to help break down abstract concepts. My child needs help with math, and they were able to supply my child with a top-notch math tutor who could help my son improve. Not only is it hard to find qualified math learning specialists who work well with school-aged children, but they also come to your home, which is a real godsend.
