I received my education from The George Washington University in 2007 in Speech and Hearing Science and Psychology. I received training at the Rusk Medical Institute NYU and AHRC, NYC. I am a qualified educational specialist with extensive background and training in various evidence-based educational programs; including Orton-Gillingham approach, Handwriting Without Tears, and Fast ForWard.
I believe every individual is unique and every student has a different approach to learning.. I use specialized multi-sensory programs to provide students with the tools to become effective learners.

I am Orton-Gillingham trained and help students with reading disorders build stronger reading, writing and comprehension skills. The Orton-Gillingham based curricula guides students of all ages through the critical components of reading including: Phonological and Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Spelling, Fluency and Comprehension.

I am trained in Handwriting Without Tears program which is a an evidence-based teaching approach to handwriting. Children will master the skill of handwriting so they can then focus on the content of their writing, instead of the mechanics. For Spelling, the Orton-Gillingham approach helps take the mystery out of spelling by focusing on why words are spelled the way they are. Though the English language contains just 26 letters, these letters combine to create 44 speech sounds, and there are over 250 ways to spell those sounds. But the Orton-Gillingham approach condenses the spelling of these sounds into phonograms and demystifies spelling by teaching students to apply rules and generalizations that help make what was once difficult much easier! Orton-Gillingham is a powerful approach to teaching reading and spelling that uses instruction that is multisensory, sequential, incremental, cumulative, individualized, phonics-based, and explicit.

Trained as a Speech-language therapist I have been working with children and adults who have special needs for more 10 years. Trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach also enabled me to provide the tools necessary to teach phonics, reading, writing and spelling to children and adults with dyslexia. The Orton-Gillingham Approach, an intensive, sequential phonics-based system teaches the basics of word formation before whole meanings. The method accommodates and utilizes the three learning modalities, or pathways, through which people learn—visual, auditory and kinesthetic.

I love working with students and helping them boost their confidence in their academics and social language!

Amazing Tutor!

My daughter has enjoyed her tutoring sessions and they have covered a lot of material. Davisha encourages her students to improve knowledge, abilities and skills. It is obvious Davisha loves teaching and really cares about her students. She is wonderful at maintaining detailed lesson summaries which helps reinforce the material covered. We plan on continuing to learn new strategies with Davisha.

Knowledgeable and Engaging

A first encounter is defining. We found Davisha knowledgeable, accessible and professional. The most important attribute for our Family was to focus on possibility and opportunities for our Sun to prosper in his unique capacity. We found that Davisha could meet us in that expectation. Looking forward to our collaboration.

We are very pleased

Davisha Is doing very well with Matthew. She comes to his school for tutoring. Understandably from the schools perspective and the times, they would like a parent or representative present. We are both working parents with limited flexibility in our schedule. His grand mother and nanny are representing us. I would feel completely confident with Davisha meeting with him alone. She has been very punctual, communicates regularly, and is very good with Matthew. She has special training with Dyslexic programs ( Matthew's issue we think). She is always has a lesson prepared and gives him things to work on between lessons. If you observe Davisha medium scores from us, this is not a reflection of Davisha's performance. It is my measure of my son's performance. He has average scores working relatively hard. Having had a very clear case of Dyslexia myself, I see many similar signs. I can not say he has dyslexia, but he does need some extra help. In this area , it was very difficult to find someone with dyslexic training, We are very happy to find Davisha. I quickly told Davisha, I look forward to the see the improvements in the coming months. These problems will not be solved in 1 or 2 sessions. I have already committed to her working with my son for the next three months. We are very please with her performance and plan to continue working with Davisha
