As a native Hebrew speaker, in my class you will learn how to speak Hebrew the way a native speaker learned. The class will be conducted all in Hebrew so that you get the full Hebrew immersion. New vocabulary and structures will be taught through pictures and gestures and imitation.

About Atalia

Everyone has a beautiful voice. Let me teach you how to make it heard.

My passion for music is the most pervasive quality of my personality. Consequently, passing that passion on to others is what brings me the most joy in life. My goal is to spread the love and appreciation for this unique and transcending art form through guidance, performance, and instruction. As my student, you will receive exactly what you (or your child) want out of the lessons-you are the one controlling what you want from them (be it any style of music, professional track or just for fun, music theory, and performance) and I am there to provide it. Music is nothing short of extremely fun and completely liberating.

I have always loved to sing and play guitar and piano starting from a young age, and I never gave up my determination and passion for perfor

ming. In middle and high school I did many musicals (Jekyll and Hyde, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Oliver, Miss Saigon, Little Shop of Horrors, Footloose, Kiss Me Kate, and Cats) and sang in the choir (including the California All State Honor Choir and Jazz Choir). I played guitar in the school Jazz Band and participated in many jam sessions out of school. I also participated in many piano competitions, including ones for my own composition (I received an honorable mention for one of my own piano works). In college, I received a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Redlands. I have recently completed my Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Redlands. I have performed many opera roles including Suor Angelica in Puccini's Suor Angelica, Violetta in Verdi's La Traviata, the Queen of the Night in Mozart's The Magic Flute, and Fiordiligi in Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, and Najade in Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos. I was also in the University Chapel Singers Choir, Madrigals Choir, and Treblemakers a Capella Jazz choir. I currently reside in Germany where I am teaching online lessons to students all over the world, teaching English, and pursuing an opera career. So far I have sung the role of the Queen of the Night in Weimar, Germany and have done a few concerts singing Christine from the Phantom of the Opera.

"Hard work beats talent if talent does not work hard." This is my favorite quote. I truly believe that hard work will take you anywhere, no matter where your starting point is. With hard work and determination, you can be anything you want to be. With motivation, anyone can be a beautiful singer, guitarist, and pianist. If I did not believe this with all my heart, I would not be where I am today. To me, every student has great potential. It is my job and joy to bring out that potential and cultivate it into talent, love, and passion.

LESSON DETAILS

My lessons are fun and rewarding. I do not believe that a critical environment is one that is healthy or pleasant to learn in. Therefore, I am a very encouraging, patient, and supportive teacher, and I will praise you for your improvements, as well as help you correct your difficulties. I like to think of my lessons as a team effort, with more emphasis on working together and having fun. With that being said, I believe that you get what you put in out of our lessons. The more you practice and the more you show me determination and motivation, the more we can have fun, improve technique, and really make music in our lessons.

I customize each lesson to my student, so you tell me what you want to sing or play and what your goals as a musician are, and I will instruct you (or your child) in the exact way that fits your goals and interests. After a couple months with me, you will have a new found passion for music, knowledge of proper technique, reading and diction, and the skills to perform and communicate pieces of music. Most importantly, you will have the time of your life!

My voice lessons consist of vocal warm-ups where you learn proper technique and posture, breathing exercises to expand your diaphragm and support when you sing, and Repertoire work where you apply the technique you learned, practice performance skills, and learn diction of English, Italian, German, Hebrew, or French.

My guitar and piano lessons start with learning how to read music (if you do not know already) and being familiar with the keys or frets and the notes on the staff. Then we work on pieces of music, paying attention to the key factors of musicianship including rhythm, interpretation, dynamics, composition, musicality, and performance practice. My music theory lessons are based on whatever the student wants to learn or needs instruction on. I teach anywhere from basic music notation to advanced harmonic and formal analysis.

My speaking and lessons are similar to my voice lessons, minus the singing aspect-the same technique we use for singing is the technique we must use for speaking if we want to be heard, be healthy, and not get tired or worse - lose our voice. We work on breathing and projection techniques and then practice on a reading sample or presentation.

My acting lessons consist of different improv-acting games, projection techniques, and monologue and role studies. You will learn how to communicate a message to the audience clearly and effectively while having a wonderful time!

My language and tutoring classes are focused on fluency-getting comfortable speaking in the target language. We go through chapters of a lesson plan I created myself-learning vocabulary and grammar by learning the functions of them and completing speaking goals. After just a few lessons, you will find that you will be able to converse in your target language. Your individual pace is the most important to me, so we learn at the speed that you are the most comfortable with.

All I expect from you is to bring a pencil, a good attitude, and the willingness to practice and work hard in our lessons, and I will supply the rest! Looking forward to hearing your beautiful music or voice!

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.

Please feel free to get in touch and ask questions!

Please note that there's a name I don't use anymore and one of my reviews reflects that. Yes I am the same person.

Please note that there are cats in my home studio.

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.

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!

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.

Very thorough instructor and involved in each student so the lessons will evolve at your pace. I've learned so much in a short time and am very grateful to be able to learn from such a wonderful man. I highly recommend his course on Hebrew to anyone wanting to get more personal with their Bible. Learning Hebrew is a must for any scholarship of the Bible and having a great teacher makes it all the more exciting. Looking forward to moving into Yiddish once I've mastered the holy tongue.

I have been taking lessons with Rinat for a few months now. I really like her way of teaching Hebrew grammar. Her approach makes it easy to understand the nuances and complexities of Hebrew language. Her lessons are always intellectually stimulating. My understanding of the structure and constructions of Hebrew verbs have greatly improved. She is very thorough with her lesson materials and exercises. I do believe that my Hebrew will continue to progress with Rinat’s help and encouragement!

Hi! I am passionate about teaching! Hebrew is a fun language to learn, using puppets, props, flashcards, songs and so much more. We explore letters, vowels, root words, prefixes and suffixes, building essential skills for communicating in Hebrew as well as reading Hebrew in a newspaper or a Siddur. Let's start exploring today!

About Gilah

I am a professional religious school, early childhood and elementary school teacher. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Master's Degree in Education. I have been teaching Hebrew to all ages, preschool through fifth grade, since 1989. I can also teach children and adults who speak other languages to speak and read English.

Hebrew and English students can expect to improve week to week in their ability to speak, read and write in Hebrew. I can help students to gain not only skills, but confidence in their comprehension and communication in Hebrew and in English. Each lesson is tailored to the specific academic needs, interests and age, or maturity of the student. Adapting the lesson to the learner enables them to stay engaged and to see their progress.

During the lessons, students will learn letters, vowels, prefix

es, roots, and suffixes, which will aide in the building of vocabulary whether reading with vowels or not. This process builds not only decoding skills, but also comprehension skills. It's always great to more fully understand the prayers being chanted from the Siddur, or even understand a Facebook post written in Hebrew.

I look forward to meeting you and joining you on your journey of learning to read, speak and write in Hebrew or English.
