    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.
  • high school tutors,9th 10th 11th 12th grades, 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.

    Victoria is a superb tutor. She helped my high school age daughter with her writing. Victoria's skills as a tutor, as well as her sense of humor and her engaging personality went a long way with my daughter.

    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.

    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.
  • high school tutors,9th 10th 11th 12th grades, 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 problems are High schoolers facing?

High School Students Will Experience Stress and Difficulty Prioritizing and Managing their Time.

 

At school, stress increases the older students get. Schoolwork, projects, exams, and sports and extracurricular activities become more demanding. Not to mention, social expectations and responsibilities among their peers. A new horizon opens up, including hanging out with friends, dating, and partying. And these students are constantly distracted by electronic media. A teenager learning to juggle all of these is under a lot of pressure and stress.

 

 

Pressure and Conflicting Expectations.

 

Oftentimes, parents expect their kids to achieve everything they wanted. Expecting the teenager to get:

 

  • Good grades
  • Have great friends
  • Excel in extracurricular activities
  • Well-behaved
  • Responsible for themselves 
  • sometimes responsible for their younger siblings 

 

Added to this is peer pressure. To belong among peers and become “popular,” teens feel pressured to conform to their tastes, behaviors, and appearance.

 

When all the people surrounding the student are attempting to mold them into a different shape, the pressure will build up. Those people who play a part in pulling the student in different directions include:

 

  • Parents
  • Friends
  • Teachers
  • Family elders
  • Social groups
  • Siblings
  • Schoolmates

7 Tips For Parents Who Want Their Teen To Have A Strong Sense Of Self

 

 

Students Are at Risk of Mental and Physical Health Issues.

 

All of these things affect a teenager’s health:

 

  • Poor nutrition. Eating habits are bad and poorly monitored. This can result in eating disorders.
  • Lack of sleep. In their effort to do and be it all, the students sacrifice proper sleep routines. This means that they’re running a deficit every day.

 

 

Depression and Anxiety

 

  • Hormonal changes added
  • Chaos and strain of scheduling
  • Prioritizing, achieving, and fulfilling expectations

 

These things put a student under considerable emotional pressure. It will result in mood swings, aggression, depression, anxiety, and sometimes even a complete breakdown. Mental and physical health is vital for effective learning. If a students’ physical health has issues, it will affect his mental health and vice-versa.

Problems High School Students Face

 

  • Some teens lack good mentors, role models, and heroes.
  • Students might be tempted to begin unhealthy patterns with drugs and alcohol.
  • Most teens are exposed to on-screen violence and unhealthy social media.
  • They may face bullying—online and off.
  • Students may also participate in risky sexual activity and behavior.

 

 

High school is a critical phase. It is where the students get ready for college through good scores and preparation for standardized tests. Students need to improve their subject skills and focus on their studies with serious efforts for future goals.

 

If they lack proper subject skills, Math or difficult Science topics are mind-boggling. English and Social Studies will need good reading skills and comprehension capabilities. Students need to devote time to standardized test preparations.

 

Parents also find the high school life of their kids stressful. They need to spend time assisting high school kids with their homework. Not to mention Organizing class schedules and learning with comfort free from distraction.

 

It is all the more stressful for parents who don’t have much time due to long hours of work to provide our child comfort sustainable lifestyle. Do you need a high school tutor? We can help!

How Can High School Tutors Help High Schools Students on 9th, 10th, 11th, & 12th Grades

High School students need guidance and proper light shed on the ways and means by which they can perform better academically. With private tutoring, students can be easily monitored. Our tutors, along with the collaboration of the students’ parents, will avoid all these problems.

 

 

Why Your Child Will Benefit From a Private Tutoring Service?

 

 

Focused Attention

 

  • With private tutoring, Students will have the necessary attention they need. A kind of attention that they can’t usually get from a common classroom with 20-30 students. This will guarantee that the student will learn the skills needed to move forward. Strengths and weaknesses can be easily discovered. High school tutors will teach the student the skills and tools to overcome them. The student will never fall behind lessons because lessons can be customized based on the student’s pace. The student questions can be answered promptly. These things are not common in a classroom where half of the students don’t get the chance to ask questions. This is due to the limited attention a teacher in a classroom can give to each student.

 

 

Distraction-Free Environment

 

  • Pressures from a lot of things will be avoided. All things that can distract them from learning will be minimized. Our high school tutor will provide a positive environment that will encourage and make learning fun. 

 

 

Parents Have a Closer View

 

  • Parents can be a part of the students’ everyday learning sessions. They will have a closer look at where their child is at. 

 

At Thema Tutors, We will provide you or your child with the service that best fits your needs. After a free intake, we will help you decide what kind of services you should get. Our specialized tutors are professionals and experienced in tutoring high school students effectively.

 

 

Tutors Teaching Test Skills 

 

During high school, students will take the SAT or ACT college entrance exams. It’s widely recommended students learn test-taking skills and strategies, then practice taking mock exams. As part of our tutoring services, our high school tutor can also prepare students for upcoming standardized exams. Students will be academically and emotionally prepared. This will help the student bring out their best and feel confident during the exam.

 

We also offer college application assistance once your child has taken the placement tests. If other children are using these services, your child will be at a disadvantage going it alone. Parenting today is full of challenges. Helping your child be successful in life starts by helping them be successful in school. This will allow them to take their first steps towards independent thinking with a qualified tutor’s help.

 

Before you know it, your child will be out on her own and need to make her own decisions. At Themba Tutors, we will provide the student with tools. Our experienced tutors will guide and teach them to learn. They will be equipped with study habits and life-long skills that they will use academically and in real-life situations.
