WE TRAVEL TO:
Mcedwin was a fantastic tutor. He and our son, a college freshman, worked well together, and his grades, as a result, have dramatically improved.
Jacob tutored our son throughout his fifth and sixth grades. For our son, this was a time of increased academic demands and heightened anxiety, which exacerbated his language processing challenges. Jacob approached our son with sensitivity, compassion, and patience - which was greatly needed during this time. In addition to his reinforcing essential academic content, Jacob provided flexible and effective study skill strategies - strategies that our son internalized and has continued to use independently! Jacob is an intelligent and knowledgable educator who knows how to individualize his approach to his students to suit their specific needs and learning styles. He willingly communicates with school personnel and teachers to ensure continuity between his tutoring and students' classroom experiences. My son greatly benefited from this regular communication between professionals. I'd highly recommend Jacob to any child who needs individualized and extra academic support!
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 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 was referred to Themba Tutors to help my daughter strengthen her executive functioning skills. Craig was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He provided us with a few different tutors to meet in order to find the right fit. We’ve been working with McEdwin “Mackie” he’s been wonderful. My daughter has worked with several tutors over the past 5 years and Mackie is the first tutor she happily meets with. This is a huge win!
This company is great in 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 was able to really help my son improve. Not only is it hard to find qualified math learning specialists who work well with school aged children, but they come to your home, which is a real godsend.
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 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!!
I own a tutoring / educational consulting company myself.. I called to ask for help with my daughter who has sensory, adhd related issues. The woman on the phone was very honest with me and really guided me in the right direction. Most of the other companies I had called didn?t seem to understand what ?multisensory? learning style means which is fine, but I?m assuming they wouldn?t understand my daughter? learning needs. I wound up getting better services through my daughter?s school, but I?d recommend Themba to any parent with a child with special education needs.
Having been through the SAT/ACT tutoring process before with my older daughter, I knew we?d need something less conventional, more tailor-made, for my son--someone who could adjust and meet the needs of my son?s specific learning needs. My son has ADHD and easily becomes overwhelmed and anxious with regards to test-taking. After his first tutoring session with Dr. Brooke, we knew it was a "good fit?. She was able to quickly develop a great working rapport with my son. She understood that he needed to be ?gently? challenged, praised and continually encouraged to keep him from becoming overly frustrated. His original PSAT score was a 26. Dr. Brooke helped him to bring his ACT score up to a 31. We can?t thank her enough!
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 making sure he was aware of what material my son was covering 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. While at the same time, he pushed Oliver toward mastery of the material. In six months, my son began to see himself as a capable, successful math student.
I thought Paul was terrific and our son did too! Paul was particularly helpful on the math section of the ACT and math in general. Paul had an amazing rapport with our son, and that made the twice weekly commitment, for tutoring, fine for our son, which is really important. We highly recommend Paul!
We were very impressed with Anthony's calmness and resilience in the face of a daunting task; helping our daughter with math! He engaged her in creative and engaging ways to try and get across the challenging concepts of her homework and test prep. He really cared and made a lot of effort to work with our 11 year old.
My daughter, a freshman in a public high school, was struggling in math. I got in touch with Blythe at Themba, and she managed to have a wonderful math tutor come to my home the following day. She stayed much more than the required time to make sure that my daughter understood all the concepts. She also followed up with us and asked if we had any other questions that she could help with. As a parent, it is a relief to know that you can secure a tutor very quickly who comes straight to your home. A great experience!
I have currently secured two excellent Themba Tutors for my son, a junior in a NYC High School. My son really enjoys working with these tutors, Matt and Anthony. He finds their methods clear and inspiring. Matt works with my son on college entrance test preparation (ACT and SAT), and Anthony works with my son on written expression, executive functioning and attention skills.
Matt tutored my son for the SAT & ACT this fall ? We liked his positive approach to help learn the necessary testing skills. He is friendly, thoughtful and points out strengths while emphasizing areas that need extra work. Thank you for sending him to us!
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 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!
We Specialize in Math Tutoring and Travel to Your Forest Hills, Glendale, and Middle Village Home
Before students advance to higher-level math courses, they must grasp and comprehend the math skills, principles, and concepts introduced in their earlier and current math subjects. Algebra courses, for example, require students to master all the introductory content presented during their pre-algebra class.
Whether your child is currently taking pre-algebra math or simply wants to refresh their knowledge while preparing for tests or advanced math classes, Themba Tutors can help. Our pre-algebra math tutors can assist with coursework and reinforce areas that need improvement.
Many students struggle with Algebra I (1) because it is the first time they’ve encountered the concepts and skills required in the subject. The connection between arithmetic and real-life, evident to all, is often difficult for students to grasp. To encourage students’ learning of Algebra I (1), we must identify why it might not be easy to learn.
Similarly, Algebra II (2) is one of the most critical high school and college mathematics courses. It is frequently the highest level mathematics course that students take in high school, and it makes up a significant portion of SAT and ACT assessments. The topics studied in Algebra 2 and earlier math classes are also applied in subjects like chemistry and physics.
At Themba Tutors, our pre-calculus tutors hone in on two essential areas. We cannot stress the importance of having a solid mathematics foundation enough, so our private pre-calculus tutor will make sure to fill any gaps in your child’s skills and understanding of math concepts. Second, our pre-calculus tutors will ensure that your child can learn and master new material introduced by the school curriculum. This is to ensure that he or she is equipped and prepared to tackle tests, quizzes, and homework.
The world around us relies on statistics to function properly. When creating government policies or scientific discoveries, among other things, we must take into account how critically important statistics are.
We always go the extra mile to ensure that our services are affordable, dependable, and professional. If you want to have your child tutored, our professionals will provide the support your child needs to succeed academically. We can begin tutoring your child right away.
We are committed to helping your child succeed academically. If your child needs help in math, our Forest Hills, Glendale, and Middle Village Math Tutor can assist your child.
