STARTING THE TUTORING PROCESS

HOW TO START

If you email Themba Tutors at info@thembatutors.com, you will immediately hear back from their Director Julie.  Email us your tutoring and scheduling needs and we will match you with a Themba Tutor who is knowledgeable of, and sensitive to, your child’s personal and learning needs. Alternatively, leave us a phone message and our Director will call you back.

We believe it is important that our tutors establish a strong connection with your family. We offer a free, 20-minute phone consultation before you schedule the first tutoring session. It’s important that you feel comfortable working with us, and that we understand your child’s academic and personal needs before moving forward with an individualized plan of action. The learning specialist will also read your child’s evaluation before the first tutoring session takes place.

During the first session, the Themba Tutor will come to your home, assess your child’s learning needs and create a plan of action. Understanding your child is crucial to choosing the most appropriate learning strategies. The Themba Tutor will monitor progress and, with your permission, communicate with your school psychologist and any other professionals involved. Teamwork is important to this process.

As your child progresses, the Themba Tutor will refine and update his or her teaching goals, and stay in close contact with you. Collaboration is essential.

We’re fanatical about supporting you and your family. Periodically, we’ll check in with you to learn how you feel your child is responding to our tutoring. Please feel free to contact us at any point.
