New York, NY

View Full Profile

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.

Jenni has an incredible depth of knowledge of both Latin and Greek, reflecting not only her years of experience with both languages, but also a very concerted effort to think about the best way to teach these languages.

This became very apparent when I approached her to help me in what I felt would be a near impossible task: to learn a semester's worth of Ancient Greek in one month, starting from scratch.

Her clarity of explanation, her command of the material, and her professionalism as a tutor and teacher all made that possible, to the point where when I actually showed up to class, I actually found myself ahead of where everybody else was. I had mastered the material so well thanks to her efforts, that on the first test, I achieved a 104% (even got the extra credit mark), much to the impressed amazement of my new professor.

So when I give her this solid review of her skills, it is not to her as a tutor, or even a teacher. It is to her as a professional. Which is what she is in every sense of the word, as an educator, an admirer, and a bonafide inhabitant of the world of classical languages.

Jenni is simply the best. My son was struggling with Latin last year and I found Jenni online and she was able to catch him up on what he missed in order for him to start the year on a positive note.This year is going well for him . I am happy to report he received his first test grade this year and scored a 35.5/40.

He has now enjoying Latin!

Jenni is absolutely amazing. She’s been providing additional, complimentary instruction once a week for my son who is entering 3rd-year Honors Latin. Language is not his strongest point and he’s periodically struggled with aspects of learning Latin along the way. We needed an expert’s assistance to achieve the academic success I expect from him! Jenni’s personable, caring, and patient manner of education, keen sense of direction, and technical and historical acuity, has made a profound impact on my son’s competency and confidence.

About reut
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. For piano, I would prefer to stay with beginners and young ones only :) - but I promise you they will have a wonderful experience (and yes, I do have 8 years of piano studies under my belt).

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.

Lived in Israel for a year and rehearsed and taught the language in its Modern and Ancient forms on several continents. Being a former student in a Yeshiva in my early teen years, I am also deeply aware of the liturgy and the Tanach / Hebrew Bible and how it impacts contemporary languages such as Hebrew and English.

About Jared
I am a polyglot, translator, teacher, and game designer, specializing in Scandinavian Languages, Yiddish and also a host of rarely taught languages. If you would like to learn a rarer language, such as Icelandic, Greenlandic, Breton or English Creoles of Melanesia, it can be arranged via the site. Contact me via the question form for any subject for more details.

My students can expect to begin with the alphabet, and then building upon the vowels, grammar, and vocabulary. I will teach from three texts, the Torah, "A Grammar For Biblical Hebrew" by Seow, and an "Introduction to Hebrew" by John Parsons from Zola Levitt Ministries.

About Tom
My name is Tom. I had an interest in Hebrew since my early teenage years. I advanced in my Hebrew studies when I went to Asbury Theological Seminary. Since graduating not only as a pastor teaching Hebrew in Bible studies, but have taught for approximately 3 plus years in my own small groups. I have worked in group settings and with individuals of various ages. I have a bachelors in Christian Ministries, and a Masters of Divinity.

Hi, there! My name is Maya and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students in the process of learning reading, writing and speaking Hebrew, as well as expanding their knowledge about Jewish traditions (should they choose to do so). Nothing makes me happier than when my students are so comfortable speaking Hebrew that they don’t even need me anymore! I grew up in Israel speaking Hebrew as my native language. I'm young, enthused and positive. My teaching style is fun; focused and encouraging. I look forward to helping you reach your goals

Do you like puzzles? Do you like the excitement that comes from making discoveries and connections? Do you enjoy a good challenge? Do you like discovering secrets? You may be interested in learning Hebrew then!
Hebrew is among the oldest spoken languages in the world, and learning it can be like unlocking doors to realms you were never even aware of. Besides being the original language of the Torah (the Hebrew Bible) Hebrew is very useful if you're looking to spend a couple weeks taking in the beautiful banks of the Kineret in the Galilee, shopping in the bustling markets of Tel Aviv, and basking in the immense history and sanctity of the ancient city of Jerusalem.
I have more than three years experience doing private tutoring, and I use a method that is primarily oral repetition. Don't read Hebrew? No problem! We can also learn the alphabet and how to decode Hebrew words. "Chik chak" As the Israelis say.
Whether you're interested in practical Hebrew for travel and business ...

About Malka
Dear Potential Students,
Welcome to my page -I am excited to meet you! I have taught private students for about three years now, and I enjoy it immensely. A short biography as it pertains to how we will work together: I spent two years in the world of professional Opera, and three in the Jewish music/clergy world, and experienced music as a powerful connector in both worlds. The human voice is unique in terms of its capability for depth and expression, yet sometimes we don't know how to unlock power of our own voices (literal and metaphorical).
This is where I come in. I offer my clients a way of learning to sing with their unique, authentic voice using a combination of emotional and purely technical tools. Singing is a very vulnerable undertaking, so I take a holistic approach, and I give my students a technique that is easily applied
to virtually any genre of music. Whether you want to pursue a career as an opera singer, rock star, pop singer, or you just want to sing for the sheer pleasure of it doesn't matter. What matters is that you sing. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I have greatly enjoyed my Hebrew lessons with Malka. She is patient and down-to-earth and clearly has a passion for the language, helping others appreciate its beauty, and for teaching in general. I had never spoken Hebrew before, but from the first lesson, she was already having me recite vocabulary and construct sentences using proper grammar and pronunciation. I look forward to future lessons with her, and, of course, I recommend her to anyone wanting to learn more about the Hebrew language or Jewish and/or Israeli culture.

I believe that the most important thing in learning a new language is speaking as much as possible.
We must shake of the fear of embarrassing ourselves or making mistakes.
In my classes I will give you all the confidence you need in order to feel comfortable to speak.
I am very patient, encouraging and have a sense of humor, so classes will be fun.
