About

Bettina delivers an exceptional lesson experience and ranks in the top 15% of our teachers nationwide.
Teaches students:
and Ages 5+

Teaching since:
1992

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

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

I teach adults as well as children. And most of all, I try to be gentle and friendly, and not at all intimidating. (This is the part that both the kids and the grownups really appreciate!)

If you’ve been waiting to start learning conversational Hebrew, Jewish texts and synagogue skills, this could be the way for you to ease into a path of Jewish growth that you choose, a path where a helpful tutor will be with you every step of the way.

It was our first class and I found Bettina very pleasant
and able to assess my level of Hebrew.
I feel confident that I will learn well with her.
I like the fact that she recognizes that I may have holes in my knowledge of Hebrew. That is exactly why I wanted a teacher. Had some problems with my audio.
But am hoping to solve the problem before my next class.

Bettina is very knowledgeable and friendly, and is a pleasure to learn from.

As she knows four languages, this gives her a perspective that allows her to point out things that are similar across languages and things that are unique to Swedish.

I highly recommend her.
