In test preparation, a one-size-fits-all approach tends to be ineffective. Tutoring is most powerful when customized to your child’s unique learning profile. Themba Tutors teach test content, but, more importantly, help build underlying skills . Most of our students have formally recognized learning issues, for which special accommodations are granted, such as extended time or multiple-day testing. The test-taking strategies we teach incorporate such accommodations to the benefit of the student.

WE PREPARE STUDENTS FOR THE FOLLOWING TESTS

  • State tests in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science for grades 3 through high school.
  • SHSAT for admission to specialized public high schools
  • ISEE/SSAT for admission to private boarding and day schools
  • Academic tests in all subject areas.
  • Regents
  • PSAT, SAT, PLAN, ACT for admission to college.

  • College essays and test preparation

WE ARE PARTNERING WITH A TUTORING COMPANY WHO WILL

PROVIDE IN-HOME PRACTICE EXAMS & TEST RESULTS

Themba Tutors LLC is partnering with a tutoring company. This tutoring company specializes in providing in-home or online mock tests (SAT, ACT, GRE, & GMAT) in all five boroughs of New York City. They will offer your son or daughter a free mock test to be taken at your home. Once the mock test is complete, the first feedback session with our partnered company will include scoring and review of the mock test. Each family will receive a write-up consisting of a general outline of topics to be covered between tutoring sessions, scheduled practice tests, and a summary of the student’s particular strengths and weaknesses. Our partnered tutoring company’s fee is only $99 per hour for the SAT, ACT, and GRE feedback sessions and write-ups. The GMAT is $119 per hour for the feedback session and write-up. After this feedback session with our partnered tutoring company, Themba Tutors, which specializes in working with students with learning differences, will schedule their first session ($200-$250 per hour) with your son and daughter to develop a study plan based on the test results, feedback session and write-up to help improve your child’s testing taking performance. The Themba specialist will coordinate with this tutoring company for additional mock testing (same rates as mentioned above) as needed.

Our learning specialists, academic tutors, and writing coaches provide 1:1, individualized tutoring for children, adolescents, college students and adults of all ages, levels, and personalities.  Our goal is to help students and adults feel more confident and become more effective learners and workers overall. We aim for students to maximize their learning potential from a collaborative approach working with parents, teachers, and other professionals.

 

  • We specialize in tutoring students who are struggling with learning differences – focusing, organizing, studying, test-taking reading, writing, math, languages, and other subject areas.  We are experts in ADHD/ADD, executive functioning, language processing, reading (e.g. dyslexia), writing, (e.g. dysgraphia), and math disorders (e.g. dyscalculia), autism spectrum disorders, non-verbal learning disorder, and other learning differences.  Our Learning Specialists work with homeschoolers and offer online tutoring options.

 

  • We also tutor high school and college students, and adults without learning difficulties but in need of science, math, writing, and foreign language support. Our Academic Tutors support Algebra I/II, Geometry. Trigonometry, Calculus, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Programming, and many foreign languages. Our Writing Coaches support writing within English Language Arts and across the high school and college curriculum.

 

  • Each of Themba’s expert tutors has an advanced degree in working with learning differences or an academic field of expertise. All tutors have years of teaching and tutoring in private and public schools or universities.

 

  • We customize curricula, starting with careful assessments, then applying developmentally appropriate methods and strategies. The student’s current academic material is an important focus, but strengthening core skills is crucial because that will last a lifetime. We coach students to learn how to organize, plan, prioritize, focus, avoid distraction, and keep track of materials and tasks.

 

  • Goals include improving memory and information retention, spending more focused time on tasks and completing them, decreasing procrastination, organizing schoolwork, managing time more effectively, and learning to think carefully before acting.  Specialists model and support the application of skills in the appropriate context. They put the student in the driver’s seat to best generalize these skills without holding the steering wheel.

 

Themba’s expert tutors travel to your home or school in New York City, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island, Long Island (Nassau County),  Westchester and Connecticut (Fairfield County).
