    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!
  • Avatar S CL ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 11 months ago
    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.
  • Avatar Nicole May ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 11 months ago
    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.
  • Avatar Gillian Davidoff ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 11 months ago
    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!
  • Avatar carolina luttmann ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 11 months ago
    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 Eric Fingerman ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 10 months ago
    Brian is a fantastic executive functioning coach. Super helpful, flexible with hours, and tailored the experience to our needs.
  • Avatar Susan Wong ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 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 ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 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.
  • Avatar Fabiola FITZPATRICK ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 2 years ago
    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 ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 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.
  • Avatar Janice Eidus ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ a year ago
    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 ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 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!!
  • Avatar Frances Simpson ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 3 years ago
    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!

    We had a wonderful experience with our tutor Micaela. She helped our son not only academically but at every level. We will be forever grateful to have her in our lives.

    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 ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ‚ėÖ 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.

Learning Specialists


What Are Learning Specialists?


Academic tutors and learning specialists are sometimes used interchangeably, so it’s important to be familiar with what exactly each does and how they can help your child with their learning needs. Our staff also consists of Executive Function and Writing Coaches.


An academic tutor focuses on teaching a specific area of content, whether it’s mathematics, science, or reading. Meanwhile, learning specialists provide specialized support to students who are having difficulties meeting the demands of academic life. This includes students who are coping with learning differences and need enhanced learning strategies to manage their condition and succeed in school. Our staff also offers Executive Functioning Coaching for students and adults.


Learning specialists work one-on-one with students or in small groups to provide each child with the right amount of attention and guidance, which they may not be receiving in a traditional classroom setting. While learning specialists can also assist students in understanding their curriculum content, their role goes beyond helping your child with his or her schoolwork. Learning specialists can:


  • Help develop effective strategies to improve study skills and school performance
  • Educate and inform parents, family members, and teachers about learning differences and disabilities
  • Assess students to identify possible learning differences
  • Track the student‚Äôs progress and report to parents
  • Provide parents and teachers with resources that can help the student

At Themba Tutors, our learning specialists and academic tutors come from various schools of thought and philosophies. This diversity is a great advantage as it allows us to employ a variety of methodologies and find the perfect fit for every student. During the intake and tutoring process, we assist you in selecting the best way to address your child‚Äôs needs. Our learning specialists and academic tutors monitor your child’s progress and adjust goals and techniques as needed to help your child achieve short and long-term success. In addition, we work with your family, your child’s school, and other professionals on the student’s team.


Our tutors and learning specialists create individualized learning plans and strategies that are designed to address your child’s needs and align with his or her strengths and interests. When students know that their voices matter and are heard, they learn more effectively.


Our learning specialists and tutors can also help students who are exploring the possibility of studying in an Ivy League institution.
