Dvora believes that student success is a collaborative partnership between the student and the adults that are responsible for the student. This partnership includes teachers, parents, and additional support providers.
Learning should be active, fun, and make use of whatever tools and resources a student needs, including traditional materials, as well as games, hands on activities, and technology. Rather than a scripted curriculum, Dvora adapts and designs goals to meet each learner’s need.
Dvora’s expertise includes: remediation for individuals who have difficulty reading and writing English, math number sense, mindfulness meditation, Jewish thought and text study, pedagogy, organization, focus, and critical thinking.
Dvora was a special education teacher in LAUSD for nine years. Dvora enjoys working 1-1 and with small groups. Her students range from 7 years old into adulthood.
