    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.

    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.
  • Home Office Organization, 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. 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.
  • Home Office Organization, 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.

Bring Serenity and Order to Your Home or Office – Home Office Organization

Karin Socci, MA, MBA

 

Home Office Organization – Karin is certified as the first worldwide Master KonMari Consultant Practitioner by the KonMari Institute. She is certified as a Professional Organizer in the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals. Bringing her experience as a Clinical Psychotherapist into her practice, she works to bring serenity and order into hundreds of homes and offices.

Karin is here to help you and your NYC family reduce stress! Karin personally works with you to help everyone in your family manage their time more efficiently. Her services are a must in today's overwhelming, fast-paced lifestyle.

Karin’s in-home services range from one-time meetings to multiple sessions as needed or requested by each family's he works with. These custom-tailored sessions include organizing, scheduling, keeping track of family’s supplies, coordinating family’s scheduling and activities, and transitioning, e.g., morning routines, setting time for rest, relaxation, and exercise.

 

Karin is also a pro with technology. She will help you set up best practices for organizing paperwork, communication, scheduling playdates, doctor s appointments, after-school activities, and travel/leisure time.

In-Home Assessment

The in-home comprehensive assessment and interviews are scheduled for a two to three-hour block. In-person is preferred, although some of the interviewing can occur over the phone or through Skype. The first step is to examine your current systems (or lack of them) and discuss them with all key family members and helpers. This includes individual and family goals, how needs are communicated, what chores are expected, and how these expectations are managed. The family will think about and determine the biggest obstacles interfering with individual and family functioning. The end goal is to create lasting positive family changes.

Solutions and Problem-Solving

Next, a Getting Organized custom plan is designed. Karin builds upon strengths and creates a step-by-step plan to overcome challenges.

  • A communication system that works for everyone will ensure that important events and expectations are met.
  • Setting up a central command center providing calendars, upcoming events, important emergency information, and necessary supplies are designed.
  • Selecting new storage solutions will keep your home neat and orderly. Paper, whether schoolwork, mail, or other documents, need a maintenance system so that things don t pile up, but relevant content can easily be found.
  • Selecting systems for getting up in the morning at the optimal time, planning meals, completing homework, spending quiet time, establishing no device time, incorporating family relaxation time, and setting a consistent bedtime will be offered.
  • A backup plan will be handy when things don t go as planned, and follow-up tweaks are recommended to fine-tune what works best for all involved parties.
