    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.
  • Avatar Nicole May ★★★★★ 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.

    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 ★★★★★ 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 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.

    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.

    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.

  • SMART Goal SettingSpecific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound. These are the key traits that ensure your goals are clear and attainable. Our executive functioning coaches guide our students in every step of the goal-setting process and help them achieve the objectives they have set for themselves. The SMART method ensures that students stay focused, motivated, and empowered as well as feel a sense of accomplishment after each goal has been achieved.

 

  • Organization – Getting kids to be and stay organized is a pipe dream for some parents, so leave it to our executive functioning coaches to teach your child organizational skills. We’ll show them how to properly keep their backpacks neat and tidy, how to give everything a home, and how to work smarter—not harder (knocking out the most difficult tasks first, combining smaller and similar tasks, and more)!

 

  • Creating a positive study space – Children learn best when they are in a comfortable environment free from noise and distraction. Our executive functioning coaches can help you set up a dedicated space for your child’s at-home tutoring sessions.

 

  • Setting up systems –  Using calendars, planners, to-do lists, and trackers is the best way to ensure that your child stays focused, motivated, and on-task when meeting deadlines or completing projects and assignments. Here are some tips for completing the homework in a timely manner.

 

  • Delayed gratification – Technology makes it possible to have anything we want with one click of a button, but this weakens a child’s ability to self-regulate. Our executive functioning coaches help students develop self-awareness and the ability to delay gratification to achieve better rewards or results at a later time.

So far, Aaron is doing much better. it’s a slow process but he’s heading in the right direction. I think he is realizing his “weaknesses.” He’s trying to get more organized and focused so that he prioritizes his work accordingly. Thank you for helping Aaron so that he has a much smoother end of the school year; he would have been lost otherwise.

Dr. Tamara provided great support to my 11 year old son with ADHD. She worked with him on morning and evening routines. She was professional and relatable and he bonded with her, allowing her to use their relationship to teach him “en vivo” as well as additional tools to help my son work through some socialization issues. He learned a lot and has benefited from her support. We may reach out at a next developmental stage if needed and hope she is available, but trust that Craig would find another good fit for our child if not. Craig listened carefully at intake, asking the right questions and later checked in to ensure things were going alright. A positive experience, highly recommend Themba Tutors.

-Jules B  

I’m so happy we were connected with Themba Tutors. Our high school daughter was struggling in a way very common to kids with ADHD. After an initial conversation to learn our needs, Themba put us in touch with a great tutor, Felicia, who has been teaching our daughter the executive and organizational skills she needs. Felicia’s been a crucial support, and we’re delighted she’s working with us.

-Mary Jean B.

Highly recommend this amazing tutoring service. I interviewed several tutors before finding Themba via a recommendation from our son’s therapist. Craig was so professional and thorough that I was impressed from the moment we first spoke. We are so grateful to have had Alissa’s support this year and could not be happier. She went above and beyond to help Ethan (and us!) navigate through 8th grade, high school admissions, etc. Alissa’s support was a game-changer for our son and we hope to have her assistance next year!

-Talia Shaull   

Armelle was wonderful. Not just a great match for Simon but also so thorough and thoughtful. We hope to work with her again next year.
