Find a Tavor Homework Buddy
Zach Harris, Tavor Madrich
(and homework buddy)
We all know that one of the best parts of summer at Tavor is the amazing sense of community.
That's why I and so many others often find the intervening months so difficult. Simply put, we miss our camp friends and the wonderful togetherness we experience at machaneh.
The loneliness of lockdown and a summer away from Three Rivers (and amazing Techno Tavor virtual programming!) have only proven to us how important camp connections truly are.
That's why we're so excited to announce our newest program: “Tavor Homework Buddies!”
Built through classic Habo collaboration (idea credits: Machaneh Gilboa) and equally classic Habo zoom prowess! We have gathered helpers experienced with English, Math, Hebrew, Bar Mitzvah prep, Composting! You need it, we probably have it!
Here's how it works
We've built a directory (see below) of Tavor madrichimot excited to connect and provide homework help and tutoring.
Once you've located a good match for your child's needs, please contact your tutor directly to set up a schedule that works for you both.
You'll pay your homework buddy directly. We recommend a base of $18/hour.
There is no obligation to register or attend Camp Tavor to take advantage of our Homework Helpers...
Got friends? Our helpers are available to assist groups as well!
I am currently a Junior at Brown University studying Political Science. I've been going to Tavor since 2010 and love it so much! I'm a big fan of toranut (washing the dishes) and tiyul (camping trips). I love our Tavor community and am so excited to have a new way to engage with it during the academic year!
I'm best with English, History, Hebrew, and Tanakh (Bible) but am also capable of teaching Math and Science at an Elementary or Middle School level .

I'm a freshman at Eastern Michigan University studying social work. I just came back from workshop and learned a lot of Hebrew! My first year at Tavor was in 2011 and I've been going back ever since! My favorite part of machaneh is on Friday when we have really good food, sing and then do rikkud!
English , Hebrew , electives, email and we'll work it out.

I am currently a first-year at The University of Michigan Medical School. In college, I studied biochemistry with minors in physics and creative writing, also at The University of Michigan. Throughout my undergrad I worked as a tutor and teacher in a variety of capacities and environments. I went to Tavor from 2008 to 2018, first as a camper then as a madrichol, and I ran the Ann Arbor Ken for the past few years. My nickname at camp was Binky, and I always loved chuggim (special interest groups). The best chug I ever ran was Dirty Jobs, where each day we would do an activity that got us as muddy or dirty as possible (and then after, we'd hose or shower it all off of course).
English, Math, and Science of all kinds
My availability varies, but I am free most nights and weekends if we communicate ahead of time.
I am a first-year at Tufts University doing a dual degree program (BA/BFA) where I will be majoring in studio art and either sociology or philosophy. I have been going to Tavor since 2011 and I have always loved waking up early Saturday morning to do the lake swim.
Math, Art Portfolio, History, Art

I am currently a freshman at Georgetown University studying Government and Justice and Peace Studies. I started going to Tavor in 2012 and I love the friends I've made and the way it has taught me to think about the world!

Charlotte H Frischer
I am a freshman at Ohio Wesleyan University, majoring in education. I started going to Tavor as an amelimot in 2010, I have worked as an amelimot madrecha and I helped run the spykids chug this summer during Techno Tavor. I think the most beautiful thing about machaneh are the relationships that you build with your kvutza and madrechimot. I think this is important and beautiful because relationships shape experience and how much one gets out of anything and everything that happens at machaneh.
Math, geometry and algebra
Availability shifts due to class schedule. We can discuss days/times as needed.
Hi! My name is Hanna and I am a senior at the University of Maryland majoring in Civil Engineering and minoring in Sustainability! I started going to Tavor in 2007 and have gone almost every summer since. I come from a big Tavor family, my dad started going in the 60s. My favorite part of Tavor is tiyul (camping trips)! In these crazy times, I really appreciate all the camping skills I learned on tiyul because I use them when I want to escape into nature!

My first summer at Tavor was 2019 as a bogrimot madrich and this past summer I was half of Tzevet Tarbut (Directors of programming) on Mazkirut! My favorite part of Tavor is the amazing and lovely community, but also the chof (beach).

I am currently taking a gap year before I go to Earlham College next year, majoring in linguistics. I have been going to Tavor since 2012. My favorite part of the week at camp is Zman Ruchani (Spiritual Time), when everyone takes some time to relax and appreciate the week as part of preparing for Shabbat. Shira (singing) after meals is also lots of fun!
English, Math, History/Social Studies, Music, Biology, Spanish
Basically anytime, at the moment
I am currently a junior at University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and majoring in mathematics and horticulture. I have been going to Tavor every summer since 2009 and hope to be there again this summer. My favorite part about Tavor, besides all of the amazing people, is swimming in the chof (beach)!
