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.

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.

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.

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.
