    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.

    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.

    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!

  • Psychology Tutors, Themba Tutors 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!
  • Psychology Tutors, 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.
  • Psychology Tutors, 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.
  • Psychology Tutors, 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.

  • Psychology Tutors, Themba Tutors Fara Jones ★★★★★ 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!!

    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.

    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.
  • Psychology Tutors, 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 Are The Seven Types of Psychology?

 

 

Biological Psychology

  • How the body and brain work to enable emotions, memories, etc.
  • How genes combine with environment to influence individual differences; and
  • The links between biological and psychological processes.

 

Learning (Behavioral) Psychology

  • The study of observable behavior and its explanation by learning; and 
  • How we learn observable responses.

 

Cognitive Psychology

  • How we retrieve information, process, encode, and store the information; and 
  • The study of all mental activities associated with communicating, thinking, knowing, and remembering.

 

Social-cultural Psychology

  • How thinking and behavior vary across cultures and situations; and
  • How it affects our behavior and thinking.

 

Psychodynamic Psychology

  • How behavior springs from conflicts and unconscious drives. 
  • We use the information to treat people with disorders.

 

Humanistic Psychology

  • How we meet our needs for love, achieve self-fulfillment and acceptance; and
  • This emphasizes the growth of healthy people.

 

Evolutionary Psychology

  • How the natural selection of traits has promoted the survival of genes; and

Why Is Psychology Important?

 

Psychology involves helping people with their physical and emotional problems while providing the necessary mental capacity to handle daily challenges. Issues such as financial difficulties, relationship stress, and workplace stress affect people at many levels. Their psychological symptoms require managing and diagnosing, which is where modern psychology comes into play and why it’s important.

 

 

How Does Psychology Help People?

 

Essentially, psychology helps because it can explain why people act and respond the way they do.  A professional psychologist can help people learn how to improve their stress management, decision-making, and behavior based on understanding past behavior and predicting future behavior. All of this can help people have a more successful career,  self-confidence, better relationships, and better communication.

 

 

Sub-Disciplines of Psychology

Some psychology subdisciplines include:

 

  • Family – This discipline focuses on the interpersonal systems found with the family. Family psychology is sometimes known as family therapy, 
  • Sports – Sports psychology involves how psychological factors can affect an athlete’s performance.
  • Business – This discipline talks about the effectiveness of a workplace or organization by studying people and overall behavior in the workplace.
  • Media – Media psychology studies the complex relationship between media and its effect on human behavior.
