    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

Navigating the world of statistics often presents a significant challenge for high school and college students, leading to anxiety as they grapple with complex topics such as probability distributions, hypothesis testing, and data analysis techniques.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Jake. One aspect that stood out to me was that he took the time to understand my learning style and catered our sessions towards ways that would work best for me, which I very much appreciated! Jake was so fantastic and always had a positive attitude. He helped me work on my time management skills, reading skills, and organizational skills. I valued how much he celebrated my good grades and all the little wins along the way! Jake was very flexible in terms of scheduling, which I appreciated during my hectic college life. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to work with him!!

I look forward to meeting new tutors and clients in the 2021-2022 school year!



-Gillian D.     

We are parents of a bright college-age son who, despite his intelligence, has struggled academically because of ADHD and executive functioning challenges. After a very difficult first three semesters at college, which deeply affected his confidence and self-esteem, our son left school and, for years, was too discouraged to return, fearful of more failure. We reached out to Themba Tutors to recommend someone who could give him the support and encouragement he needed to return to school, and he was referred to Jordan W. We could not have been happier with that referral. We had no idea whether our son would be willing to work with him, but Jordan’s warm and engaging nature won him over. With Jordan’s support, guidance, and encouragement, our son went back to college! He is still a work in progress and has many challenges ahead. Still, we are, and will always be, grateful for Jordan’s kind and caring nature, intelligence, and extraordinary patience in helping our son move forward. Thank you, Jordan, and thank you, Themba Tutors.


Lillian is amazing and is, no doubt, a large factor in the colleges to which Ben has been accepted.  She has changed his whole orientation towards his academics.
