    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 ★★★★★ 3 years ago

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 ★★★★★ 3 years 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 ★★★★★ 3 years ago

I look forward to meeting new tutors and clients in the 2021-2022 school year!
  • Avatar carolina luttmann ★★★★★ 3 years 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 Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ 3 years 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 ★★★★★ 4 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 ★★★★★ 3 years 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.

    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!!

    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.

Non-Verbal Learning Disorder

What Is a Non-Verbal Learning Disorder?


A nonverbal learning disorder (NVLD or NLD) is a brain-based condition characterized by academic difficulties experienced by children of average or superior intelligence. These difficulties may also include struggles with socialization and interactions inside and outside of school. NVLD is characterized by poor visual, spatial, and organizational skills, struggles with recognizing and processing nonverbal cues, and difficulties with motor skills. Problems with executive function and higher-order information processing, math, and social skills may also be present in NVLD.  Nonverbal learning disorder also presents unique challenges to adults. Learn the signs and symptoms of NVLD in adults.


Contrary to what its name may imply, non-verbal learning disorder doesn’t mean that a child does not speak. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Individuals with NVLD struggle with interpreting non-verbal language and rely only on verbal communication to understand the message. This can be problem because approximately 93 percent of communication is non-verbal, which includes body language, facial expressions, and tone.


Grab Misnamed, Misdiagnosed, Misunderstood (recognizing and coping with NVLD from childhood through adulthood) today and equip yourself with this new knowledge and apply your understanding to your life to achieve the potential you were always meant to.

Non-Verbal Learning Disorder Tutors



It can be difficult to identify the signs and symptoms of a nonverbal learning disorder because plenty of other conditions can fall under this overarching term. Not to mention, most children with NVLD do not exhibit all of these signs.
Because children with NVLD rely on verbal communication alone, they tend to speak more to compensate for their struggles with non-verbal clues. As such, they tend to have great memory, vocabulary, and verbal language skills. This is one of the reasons NVLD is often overlooked.
Despite this, a child with NVLD may have trouble with reading comprehension and higher forms of math, such as word problems. NVLD also includes deficiencies in fine and gross motor skills, so a child may find writing, riding a bike, or using scissors difficult.
Other signs of NVLD include:
  • Difficulty with understanding and processing facial expressions and body language
  • Talking “like an adult” at an early age
  • Clumsiness or poor coordination
  • Interrupting the flow of a conversation by asking too many questions and being repetitive
  • Trouble with understanding spatial or unsaid information
  • Visual and spatial problems
  • Unable to “get” sarcasm, jokes, and other nuances
  • Struggles with multistep directions and complex instructions
  • Advanced verbal skills that overshadow other challenges

More About Non-Verbal Learning Disorder



Studies suggest that NVLD may be caused by a deficit in the right cerebral hemisphere of the brain, which is responsible for nonverbal processing. Rather than responding to specific social cues, the child may develop systems, such as rote memories of past experiences, to guide them as to how to react and behave in new situations.




There is no single treatment plan that can be applied to all individuals with NVLD. Children with any learning disorder, however, benefit most from early intervention and support. Following observation and an initial assessment to determine a child’s specific needs, school-based professionals can develop a plan for both social and academic accommodations required for improvement. Extra practice time for developing skills in pattern recognition and thought organization, as well as counseling to help the child better understand social expectations, may be included in these interventions. To reinforce school-based learning and interventions, at-home strategies can also be implemented. A child can also benefit greatly from non-verbal learning disorder tutoring.


Because children are aware of their struggles, they may become sensitive about their troubles. Children with non-verbal learning disorders have an increased risk of developing generalized and social anxiety than their typically developing peers. In such cases, therapy may also be sought. Treatment approaches for different children will always depend on the type and severity of symptoms displayed.

What is a nonverbal learning disorder?

As many as 1 in 25 children and adolescents in the U.S. and Canada may have non-verbal learning disabilitiesNon-verbal learning disability (NVLD) is characterized by deficits in visual-spatial, math, and social skills due to difficulties reading non-verbal cues

Is nonverbal learning disorder a form of autism?

NVLD is not one of the official diagnoses mental health professionals and schools use to categorize kids with psychiatric or learning problems. Most professionals believe it is a form of a learning disability. Kids who have it usually have other diagnoses—often autism or ADHD.  It is not defined as a separate condition in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Most individuals with NVLD had a diagnosis of either ADHD or autism spectrum disorder at an earlier time in their lives.

How do you teach a child with a nonverbal learning disability?

It is important that the student is calm and relaxed. Explicitly teach social cognitive thinking skills for a better understanding of social situations. This also includes teaching emotional vocabulary. For math, using manipulatives and concrete symbols to make math less abstract is critical.
