About Itai G.

Close
Jamaica Plain, MA
View Full Profile

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
Itai 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. He has been working in after-school, Hebrew school, camp, and other supplementary educational settings for over ten years. Itai's 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. His piano students have ranged from five-year olds just starting, to young children learning Classical pieces, to teens learning to play the songs they like, to adults working on their songwriting and improvisation. Lessons will accommodate the student's goals. Itai's strengths are improvisation, music theory and ear training, and accompaniment of popular songs - rock, theater, pop, folk,
etc. As a musician, Itai writes songs, composes music for communal singing, improvises, and plays in a Klezmer band. Aside from tutoring, Itai works as a songleader, teaches at the Hebrew school at his synagogue, growing a new outdoor Hebrew school, and occasionally teaches at an outdoor education program.

Itai was fantastic. Reliable and knowledgeable. I had been through many teachers to find one as good as Itai. Also very flexible with what I was interested in learning.

This first class was great. We had some small problems with the camera and voice, but that had nothing to do with Itai. My son was excited when class was over. He is looking forward to his next lesson.

I am an advanced/fluent Hebrew speaker. I'm not a native, but my accent is excellent. With my extensive experience teaching language, and years as a university student in all Hebrew courses, I can help you become conversational and confident.

About Jenni
My name is Jenni and I am a professional Latin and Greek teacher with over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring both Latin and Ancient Greek. I have taught professionally at the elementary, junior high, and graduate levels and I hold a Master’s degree in Classical Philology. I currently work at the Polis Institute, where I teach Greek and Latin as living languages to graduate students.

I also have familiarity with spoken Latin and Ancient Greek, and I teach all of my professional courses in a 100% immersion setting. My passion is to show every interested student that they have the capability to master these languages.

With my help, the complicated aspects of these languages will become clear to you, as I help my students learn tools and strategies that they will keep with them in the classroom and out – all in a fun and fr
iendly tutoring environment.

With specifically tailored instruction, either as a supplement to current courses or an education ab initio (i.e. from the beginning), I will work with you to help you access the beautiful literature, history and music of the languages of the Ancient World.

Hello there!

I am a trombonist and teacher, with many years of experience teaching Hebrew as well as music.

As a music teacher I have worked with children starting from private lessons to young children beginning to learn, up to master classes in universities worldwide. I love teaching, and I feel confident teaching trombone and trumpet up to advanced level.

I am thrilled to be working with Ariella Edvy in my quest to learn Hebrew. Her approach of using music and video clips to teach make her lessons fun and relevant. But there are two things that really set her apart -- her art of teaching elocution (she makes you feel it!) and her way of modeling her lessons to each individual's learning style.

About Bettina S.

Close

Are you looking for help with Hebrew homework at school or university? Are you going to Israel and would like to be able to speak with people there? Perhaps your child doesn't have time for Hebrew school, but you'd still like him/her to learn? I can help! I teach adults and children, Jewish or not. I am gentle and patient, and I make sure my lessons are fun and entertaining. Connections are made between various subjects, we sing songs, watch relevant film clips, and tell stories.

About Bettina
I lived in Israel for over a decade, and graduated from the University of Jerusalem with degrees in Education and History. I regularly read Torah, chant megillot, and lead services in my synagogue.

I grew up in Sweden, speaking Swedish at home, but going to French school. At age four, I was immersed in a French environment, and had to sink or swim. I swam! In my late teens, my family moved to Israel, so I became fluent in Hebrew as well. I understand a lot about the language acquisition process.

While languages fascinate me, and come easily to me, I understand that that is not the case for everyone. I am very patient, and willing to try different methods in order to succeed. I realize that some people learn best by seeing the materials, while others need to hear them, or even sing them! Others need to move their bodies and engage in
kinesthetic learning. I facilitate all these methods.
I have taught all ages, from preschoolers to the elderly. I have taught in schools, preschools, informal educational settings (like summer camps) as well as one-on-one privately.

I’m very flexible with timing, and available as often as you’d like, Sunday to Friday.

Bettina helped me to succeed at speaking French with my non-English speaking friends in Paris, on a recent trip to Paris. She helped me realize that I could speak the language again. Bettinas’ style, knowledge, and patience are some of her keys to my success in Paris. I appreciate her effort. I will continue in a manner such that I will not lose this progress. Merci beacoup!

About Eliezer C.

Close

I am an Orthodox Rabbi who worked in Jewish education for 10 years. I have tutored in Biblical Hebrew, Tanach, and rabbinic texts for close to 20 years. My goal as a teacher is to give my students a strong foundation that will allow the student to develop both fluency and independence in their studies. Though I provide many of the materials, Biblical Hebrew lessons will be based on "The First Hebrew Primer." For more experienced students, I can assist in the study of the weekly Torah portion, or any other Biblical or rabbinic text desired. I look forward to working with you!

About Eliezer
I am just your average country boy who became interested in Hebrew and Jewish studies and wound up becoming an Orthodox Rabbi. I was a yeshiva teacher in NY for over 10 years and have privately tutored in Hebrew and Jewish topics for the past 20 years. I have made it my mission to make it easier for people from all backgrounds and walks of life to gain a basic knowledge of Biblical and Jewish texts and the languages they are written in. Over the years, I have taught Biblical Hebrew, Aramaic and Yiddish, as well as a wide range of Jewish texts and topics.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and have 3 wonderful children. In addition to languages and Jewish studies, I have a keen interest in music, philosophy and Medieval History.

About RINAT
Hello שָלוֹם
My name is Rinat Adi and I teach Hebrew's language.
I came 2 years ago from Israel to U.S.A . Hebrew is my native language.
I have an experience with children (from age 3 and up), students and adults.
I teach Hebrew at "La Paz Language Academy" (also prepares students before "Aliya"), doing private lessons at my house, a substitute Hebrew's teacher at "EPJA" (El-Paso Jewish Academic), doing Hebrew's enrichment classes at "Jcenter" (Jewish preschool). In Israel I helped new immigrants with the Hebrew language.
I teach how to speak, to read and write from beginners to advanced level. It is very important to know how to teach, so my method is based on phonological awareness that prepares for proper reading.
I am patient and love to see progress with my students,
i see it as a mission to help more people achieve their
goal.

My knowledge of Semitic linguistics - except for Modern and Biblical Hebrew I know many other Semitic languages, like different dialects of Aramaic. Such a knowledge helps to understand the syntax of Hebrew, its morphology and structure on a deeper level, which, in its own turn, helps a student to grasp the features of a new language faster.

About Mikhail
I started teaching and tutoring soon I graduated form an Oriental department of Saint Petersburg Un-ty, Russia. I taught both Biblical and Modern Hebrew in different universities in Russia and in Israel. At the same time I was tutoring - mainly helping with the language to those who decided to move to Israel and to children.

My name is Noa and Im from Israel :)
I have B.A in Humanities and Social Sciences , at Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheba.
I have had experience teaching Hebrew language to students from five years old to adults.
For every age, I Incorporated games and motions to facilitate learning.
I am sensitive to learners’ needs and understand that students learn best when they feel Accepted and encouraged. Mastering new skills empowers students. It is true I offer Praise, but student success comes when they believe in themselves.
In conclusion I have years of teaching experience in Israel and the United States in a positive manner and with my way of teaching you will gain a lot .
sincerely,
Noa

About Noa
Dear Students,

I’m a born and bred Israeli who graduated from Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Ben Gurion’s dream university in the middle of the southern desert. I served in the IDF, trained to use an UZI.

Although I managed offices and was a top salesperson for Jet Lag Jeans, I always gravitated back to teaching Hebrew. Working with five-year-olds, i developed interactive dance and word games. Teaching ten-year-olds, I drew pictures of Hebrew words, creating stories where students practiced new vocabulary. For young adults, taught vocabulary, then designed groups and pairings to use the new vocabulary in conversation.

In tutoring, I work from a student’s strengths to build confidence and introduce new challenging material in steps, simplifying as we go. Mastering new concepts with my students is my specialty.

I hold a do
uble major in Behavioral Science and Human Resources. I won scholarships for academic excellence three years in a row at the university. I have a teaching certificate for Jazz/Modern instruction. The IDF sent me to learn computer programs and I received an Excel, Windows Certificate. From the Omega Institute in Tel Aviv, Israel, I am a certified psycho therapist who is qualified to counsel people.

Seeing a student change in front of my eyes is beautiful. Helping students master a language created with the birth of Israel gives me satisfaction. Guiding learning with my students until they believe in themselves rewards me as well as them.
