    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!

  • Avatar 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. 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!
  • Avatar 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.

    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 ★★★★★ 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.
  • Avatar 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.
  • Avatar Monica Alzate ★★★★★ 3 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.

Why Homeschooling?

Homeschooling refers to the education of a child at home. It is usually conducted by a parent, homeschool tutor, or online teacher. Homeschool tutor usually teaches one student at a time. Many reasons cause parents to opt for homeschooling. Homeschooling allows kids to get one-on-one attention from their tutors. This is typically not achievable at private or public schools where each teacher has to deal with many students at a time.

 

Many students in the classroom are shy to tell their teachers that they didn’t understand the concept. When a student struggles with certain subject content, a typical classroom teacher will not stop just to make sure your child gets it. The classroom teacher will continue the discussion without knowing some of the students were left behind. On the other hand, Homeschool tutors can work with the student until he/she mastered the concept.

We Finally LOVE Our Homeschool Curriculum | Best Curriculum 2022 – 2023 | The Good and the Beautiful

Homeschooling helps kids excel in their academics. It provides greater educational freedom and lets students learn at their own pace. Homeschooling allows the student and tutor to take all the time they need to ensure learning occurs. Tutors will not waste time on repetitive lessons if the student is ready to move on.

 

Homeschool students can also go through lessons at a faster pace than a typical classroom student. Plus, parents can play a more active role in their child’s school schedule and curriculum.  They will have a more direct part in their child’s daily learning. This will also help parents build stronger relationships with their children.

Other Benefits of Homeschooling

 

      • Ability to pursue a child’s interests
      • Homeschoolers tend to perform better on standardized tests
      • Less ridicule and social pressures that reduce self-esteem and discourage learning
      • No bullying
      • Less distraction

Who Should Oversee Homeschooling?

After choosing to homeschool a child, the parents need to decide who will be teaching the child. While parents are allowed to teach their children, hiring tutors is a better option. Home tutors are professionals who know the best approach.  At Themba Tutors, we offer each child a customized approach for teaching all subjects.

 

It is often difficult for parents to have adequate knowledge of important subjects. However, hiring the service of a reputable tutoring company such as Themba Tutors will help you find the right teaching approach. Our learning specialist can customize the homeschooling curriculum to fit the student best. This will help students learn subjects like math, science, and other important subjects in the best way.

 

Schools are created to teach group learning. This means your child needs to adapt to the school’s curriculum. Homeschooling curriculum adapts based on your child’s interests, strengths, and weaknesses. Adding some fun into our approach won’t hurt either. For upper grades at private and public schools, it can be quite competitive among students.

 

With a homeschool tutor,  students can study smarter instead of harder and achieve the results they need to be successful.  Homeschoolers can organize their days in whatever way works best for them.

Personal Attention

 

Class size can be an issue for students who have difficulty focusing. Many students need personal one on one attention to grasp a concept fully. In a thirty-student class, during a standard forty-minute lesson, one teacher can only hope to spend an average of two minutes on any one student.

 

With home tutoring,  students will receive undivided attention from an experienced homeschool tutor. Having a Themba tutor to teach your child will provide your family with a massive advantage. Our teachers are learning specialists too. Learning specialists have more training than regular education teachers. A lot of ground can be covered over one session compared to one hour of large group learning.

 

Qualified and Experienced Tutors

 

Typically, parents will teach their children themselves, but this method has its limits. Contrary to popular belief, it is not easy to be a good teacher, particularly your child! Although you may be knowledgeable in a field of study, teaching it is a different story.

Exam Preparation

 

There are certain times of the year when tutoring is worth the investment.  We provide a variety of exam preparation. Please reach out to us if you need your child tutored for a particular exam.
