I am a fluent native speaker, and can teach Biblical and modern Hebrew. I combine reading and conversation in order to put Hebrew into context. Lessons will focus on students' needs, whether it be bnei mitzvah tutoring, learning the language, learning prayers, etc.

About Itai
I graduated from SUNY Purchase with a BA in Studio Composition in 2007, and from Hebrew College with a Masters' Degree in Jewish Education in June, 2016. I have been working in after-school, Hebrew school, camp, and other supplementary educational settings for the past ten years. Most of my students are learning piano, and I also have a few Hebrew students. My Hebrew students are either studying for their bnei mitzvah, maintaining their conversational Hebrew, or learning for the purpose of competence of services or Torah study. My piano students have ranged from age 4 to young children learning Classical pieces to teens learning to play the songs they like to adults working on their songwriting and improvisation. My strengths are improvisation, music theory and ear training, accompaniment of popular songs - rock, theater, pop, folk, etc.


Please feel free to get in touch and ask questions!

My first lesson was everything I hoped for from start to finish. I haven't played piano for many years & wanted to begin by using a keyboard as a learning tool--to recapture dexterity and reading ability. I emerged with a better grasp of basics & even a little music theory--exactly as I had requested. Itai is a wonderfully patient teacher & I am looking forward to next week.

Ricky is an amazingly creative and inspiring teacher.

Ricky has been teaching my daughter for last 5 years. My daughter is now 15 years old. She already played piano for a couple of years before Ricky started working with her and at that time was getting disinterested. We were looking for someone who would bring that interest and spark back into her playing piano. I was looking for a special teacher who can teach basics of improvisation and accompaniment to a young child. After talking with several potential teachers, we decided to work with Ricky.

Ricky has proven to be an amazing teacher for my daughter. He is patient, creative and able to adjust to the child’s needs. I was amazed when couple of months after my daughter started working with him; she was already improvising and playing really cool pieces of music. That kind of teaching has inspired my daughter to continue playing piano for the last 5 years. She has accompanied two of her friends singing at her school talent shows and graduation ceremony with encouragement and inspiration Ricky has provided her all along.

Ricky frequently encourages my daughter to pick her own songs she would like to work on. Ricky has a strong knowledge of music theory and has incorporated that in his lessons. I love that my daughter is learning music theory, improvisation, accompaniment and reading music all with the same teacher. It is not easy to find a teacher who is so creative to include all of these in his teaching method. I would highly recommend Ricky as a piano teacher for any age.

I teach Modern, Prayer, and Biblical Hebrew, and adjust my methods to every student. My strengths are adding additional structure to the language (so everything makes more sense to you!), accent reduction, and vocabulary acquisition. I have prepared students for high school entry exams, travel, reading in synagogue, bar/bat mitzvahs, and lifelong learning. When teaching a 5 year student, I developed a new method for acquiring Hebrew language skills at a very young age. I also posses extensive knowledge on Judaism and Israel.

About Gidon
Thank you for reading my profile!

I was born in the Netherlands and moved to Israel at a young age. In the absorption center I picked up English. Ever since I kept perfecting my Hebrew, English, and Dutch, have written extensively and edited periodicals in the three languages I speak.

As a lifelong learner, I hold graduate degrees in Geography and Environmental Development and in Public Policy Studies. I am also certified as a Six Sigma Green Belt and a Bilingual Education Teacher.

During the 1990s and 2000s I taught IT, statistics, and social sciences and engaged in research at universities and colleges in the domains of transportation, game theory, and political geography, including at the University of Chicago. In between, I worked seven years in educational management at the City of Tel Aviv-Yafo.

From 2007 to 2013 I ta
ught Hebrew, Judaism, and Israel Studies in informal education programs and subbed in K-12. In the early 1990s, 2000s, and the second half of 2013 I worked in IT.

In the 2010s I have been marketing international educational programs, tutored mostly Hebrew and Dutch, taught mostly Microsoft Office, and proctored for an Israeli university. In August 2016 I dropped most of these for an IT and languages research position in Austin, TX. I still market educational programs and take on an occasional student.

Since the millennium year I'm married to Tamar, who teaches Hebrew, music, math, and computer programming. We raise a son and daughter.

About my class: It’s very good. The reading part is very interesting (that Ted talk). Before that I didn’t read loudly. When I started Ted talk Odaya she advised me to read at loud, when I didn’t understand something. When I practiced that later at home, I felt the change. I am very much excited for my next class

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.

About orit
Hi / Shalom / שלום

I have experience with teaching beginners, intermediate and very advanced Hebrew students. I was and am teaching mainly adults of any age from 16- to 90-year-olds.

During my lessons, I use different methods to teach new material, to practice it and to engage the student in conversations in Hebrew. Following each lesson a summary of the lesson is emailed to the students. The summary includes review, my recordings in Hebrew, links and more practice options.

One of the focuses of my Hebrew teaching career between 2014-2016 was developing a program for teaching to read in Hebrew. The result of these 2 years’ work is a series of 8 booklets “Learn to Read Hebrew in 1 to 8 Weeks!” –which will be available in Amazon on January 2017.

My brand name, “Ivrit By Orit”, includes Ivrit, which means Hebrew in Hebrew, and
my first name Orit, which means 'light' in Hebrew.
After you sign-up for my lessons, I will forward you my website and FaceBook links where you can learn more about me, the Hebrew language, and Israeli and Jewish culture..

Hebrew can be a challenging language to learn -I know from having taught myself. What I will offer you as one of my students is a step-by-step process to really understanding Hebrew as a language from the ground up. I can help you build a rock-solid foundation.
I use a method that is all oral repetition. This is because I believe that speaking is the critical foundation to reading and writing (think about it: little kids learn to speak first before they learn to read and write, so doesn't it make sense to do it with a foreign language?)
By learning to speak modern Hebrew, you will automatically have access to Biblical Hebrew, the modern language of the state of Israel, and also innumerable texts that are otherwise very hard to translate. Hebrew is a beautiful and rich language, and I can show you how to unlock its secrets!

About Malka
Hello Potential Students!
I can't wait to start working with you! I know from experience that a good student/teacher relationship is the key for success, so I approach my teaching with positivity, flexibility, and the firm belief that everyone has innate intelligence waiting to be uncovered and harnessed.

I offer my students humor, support and my own expertise in a variety of subjects relating to the field including audition advice, tips on controlling performing nerves, help with diction, text interpretation, and much more! I believe the student/teacher relationship should be based on trust and mutual respect, and that is what I offer.
