    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.
  • Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors Nicole May ★★★★★ 7 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.

  • Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors carolina luttmann ★★★★★ 7 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!

  • Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors Susan Wong ★★★★★ a year ago
    Giulia Mercuri is a great Italian tutor! She was very responsive and accessible.

  • Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors 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.
  • Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ a year 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.
  • Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors 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.

  • Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors Monica Alzate ★★★★★ 2 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.

What Is Organizational Coaching or Tutoring?

Themba Tutors offers a pragmatic and straightforward approach for Organizational Coaching.

 

Organizational Coaching Tutoring – Organizational coaching or tutoring is another term for Executive Functioning Coaching (adults/college students and school-age students). Executive functioning is a set of brain functions or mental skills that include:

 

      • Working memory
      • Flexible thinking
      • Self-control

 

We all use these skills every day to learn, work, and manage daily life. Difficulties with organizational skills can make it hard to:

 

      • Focus
      • Follow directions
      • Handle emotions

 

What are the Executive Functioning Skills?

Is executive functioning and ADHD the same?

Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors

Having excellent organizational skills is crucial in achieving goals or accomplishing tasks. These neurologically-based skills involve mental control and self-regulation. They allow an individual to maintain focus when dealing with different tasks and efficiently use time, energy, mental capacity, and resources to achieve their desired results. In short, these are skills that are crucial in managing daily responsibilities at home, in school, or at work.

 

For example:

 

Organizational skills allow you to plan:

 

      • A vacation itinerary
      • A presentation for work
      • A writing assignment for school

 

Disorganization is one of the main manifestations of executive functioning problems, which has become a standard buzzword in schools and psychology offices. This is more than just a fad. In fact, neuropsychologists have been studying these skills for several years.

How Can an Organizational Coach/Tutor Help?

Think about what life might be like for somebody with weak organizational skills. It gives you an understanding of how these core skills affect the ability to manage life tasks. 

 

Organizational skills go beyond being able to keep a clutter-free desk or maintain a tidy closet. They allow an individual to create structure, be more productive, and prioritize tasks based on need or urgency. It also refers to one’s capacity to remain calm, stay focused, maintain perspective when faced with an unexpected situation or challenge.

 

When dealing with projects at home, in school, or at work, a strong set of organizational skills allows one to plan and break down a big task into smaller tasks, allocate resources, and keep track of space and materials to achieve the goal more efficiently. Likewise, it is crucial in planning the series of steps needed to complete a goal, set and stick to the time frame in which tasks must be completed, delegate, meet deadlines, and assess one’s own work or performance.

 

Organizational coaching/tutoring helps individuals minimize or eliminate factors that hinder them from becoming successful and efficient in their home, school, and work-life, such as procrastination, poor communication, and clutter.

What Are Executive Functioning Strategies?

Organizational Coaching Tutoring, Themba Tutors

Some of the strategies our executive function coaches employ are:

 

  • Positive reinforcement
  • Identifying strengths to boost self-confidence
  • Modeling organizational skills
  • Creating systems to help plan and prioritize tasks and long-term projects
  • Teaching effective time-management skills
  • Introducing coping mechanisms to counter limitations
  • Creating techniques for problem solving and analysis
  • Developing metacognitive approaches, such as self-monitoring and reflection

 

For executive functioning coaching, Themba Tutors can help with:

 

  • 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.

 

  • 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.

 

  • Time management skills – We help students develop and improve their time-management skills by teaching them productivity techniques. This includes breaking down bigger tasks into smaller chunks, getting started, tracking time and progress, and planning and prioritizing.

Strategies to Improve:

  • Impulse control
  • Emotional control
  • Flexible thinking
  • Working memory
  • Planning & prioritizing
  • Organization
  • Task initiation
  • Self-monitoring

 

Our executive function coaches and tutors help adults and professionals perform better in their work environment. Putting their strengths to best use is one of the things we aim to achieve. Our specialists will help you work around challenges and find ways to overcome difficulties through proper adult coaching for executive functioning skills.
