Private Hebrew Teacher

Hi / Shalom / שלום,

I was born and raised in Israel, I moved to the US in 2001 and few years later I started to teach Hebrew. Something that started as a hobby and a part time job became my passion and a full time job for me. I feel very lucky and thankful to fill my days with the thing I like to do the most – help people learn Hebrew.

I have 10 years of experience in academic settings (university and college), face-to-face tutoring and teaching online..

To learn more about me, please visit my website and my school Facebook page – in both places you can also read what my students think about our lessons.

Private Hebrew Classes Near You

The Hebrew language is one-of-a-kind, with documents dating back to 1,000 BC that have survived through to today. However, many believe this language was used as early as 5,000 BC. The language also saw a dormant span of over 1,500 years, from around 200 AD to 1850 AD. During that time, the Hebrew language was used for reading but wasn't spoken.

Hebrew's major claim to fame is that nearly all of the Old Testament Bible was originally written in the language. For this reason, there's a large demand to learn Ancient Hebrew for the purpose of better understanding these historical texts. Unlike English, Hebrew is written from right to left and has no vowels!

The Benefits of Taking Private Hebrew Lessons Near You

With over nine million speakers of the modern native language, you'll have plenty of opportunities to use your Hebrew skills for work or travel. You can also take the principles of modern Hebrew and apply many of them to learn Biblical Hebrew. Let's look at a few more of the benefits you’ll experience when learning this unique language. 

Reasons to Learn Hebrew for Kids

Children especially enjoy learning the Hebrew alphabet, which is completely different from English. They also love the challenge of writing from right to left. It’s no surprise that learning a second language has been found to strengthen a child's brain. 

Regions of the brain dealing with overall functioning see an increase in size that allows for improvement in internal dialogues often used for problem-solving, and the ability to overcome obstacles to achieve a goal. Fluency in a second language like Hebrew will also likely open up more unique career opportunities for your child in the future.

Benefits of Hebrew Classes for Adults Near You

If you're an adult interested in how to learn Hebrew, you'll also benefit from taking lessons. First, you'll be able to read and enjoy ancient documents in their original languages. You'll have a link to ancient civilization by visiting the world-famous Wailing Wall, Tower of David and Church of the Holy Sepulcher. 

You'll also get to participate in Israel's booming, technology-driven economy, or pursue a career in immigration where you can put your skills to good use. Besides this, science has found that learning a new language is good for your health. You'll strengthen your neural networks and increase your brain's plasticity which has been found to delay the onset of dementia.

How to Learn Hebrew 

When it comes to starting a new language, everyone begins at a different place. Your Hebrew teacher will consider your age, interests and learning style when deciding on lesson topics. You'll either start at the beginner, intermediate or advanced level. Here's a summary of what to expect at each level.

Sample Curriculum in Hebrew for Beginners 

Learning Hebrew for beginners will take you through the fundamentals of the language. You'll develop a solid foundation to build your language skills for years to come. Here are some topics you'll explore.

  • Writing the Hebrew alphabet
  • Basic Hebrew vocabulary and greetings
  • Learn to speak Hebrew with proper pronunciation
  • How to form basic sentences
  • Introduction to Hebrew culture

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Hebrew Lessons

If you find yourself somewhere in the middle, this is the level you'll probably start at. There's a lot to look forward to in the intermediate stage of lessons. With some hard work and practice, you’ll soon be an advanced speaker! Here's some of what you'll cover.

  • Irregular Hebrew grammar rules
  • Listening comprehension skills
  • Conversational skills
  • Reading comprehension

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Hebrew Classes

If you're starting at the advanced level of Hebrew, you've already invested a lot of time in learning. Whether you want to learn Biblical Hebrew or simply learn to speak Hebrew more in-depth, your teacher will help you get there. Here are a few topics you might cover at this stage.

  • Reading without vowel points
  • Formal and informal writing
  • Sayings and idioms in Hebrew
  • Differentiating between Ancient Hebrew and Modern Hebrew
