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.
Directed a synagogue based after school learning program, teaching Hebrew, Bible and Judaics.
Taught modern, conversational Hebrew in Jewish day school, grades 1,2,5,6,7.
I was worried to take French lessons because I'm a slow learner but Bettina put that all to rest for me on the first lesson. She is very patient and will go at your learning level. You won't be afraid to ask questions, she does a great job making you feel comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone!+ Read More
Very good with kids.
First lesson went great-- thank you
A wonderful, patient, helpful and engaging teacher.
I have been studying Hebrew with Bettina for awhile now and find her very , warm pleasant and non judgmental. Which promotes a relaxed learning environment. Since Hebrew is the national language of Israel she will share her own rich experiences from the Israeli culture.
i enjoy learning from all she has to share.
I also find her witty at times!
After another great lesson with Bettina this evening, I am again happy that I am learning at a good pace and getting solid on the basics and useful vocabulary. She is attentive and doesn't over correct me when I struggle with pronunciation. I do enjoy studying the material she chooses. She has lots of experience teaching, I can tell.+ Read More
Bettina is very pleasant. She takes the time to make sure that I am pronouncing the words correctly and that I understand what she is explaining. I appreciate her patience! Off to a great start!
She is making learning a new language easy.
I look forward to my lessons.
I thoroughly enjoy working with her!!!! :) :)
Third lesson, a consistent delight to work with Bettina because she moves rapidly but pays attention to what is important, and she focuses on that. she's the best!
Very valuable to get the pronunciation right, concurrent with learning the vocabulary. I am excited about theses lessons!
Bettina is very sweet and a good teacher, would reccomend her:)
I was unfortunately only able to take 5 lessons (wish I could have had more!) but she helped me learn how to start reading Hebrew, which seemed a very daunting task when I first began. Now I feel like it is not so bad, and I have the tools and confidence to continue.
Bettina, Is a wonderful teacher, Not only am I learning my Hebrew lessons from her but also Israeli culture, and she shares her experience of living in The Land of Israel. Today I learned the Numerical value of the Hebrew alphabet and when it may be necessary to know it.
Sometimes I get a little anxious learning a new concept because It may take time for me to grasp it, but I find this teacher very patient and non judgemental.
Bettina is excellent. Patient, knowledgable, and personable - I enjoy every lesson thoroughly! I have progressed so well with Bettina teaching me and really appreciate her structured and thoughtful teaching methods.
My son is currently learning Hebrew from Bettina. She is very flexible in terms of schedule, quick to respond via email, via TalkLessons. Most importantly, my 9-year-old son is enjoying the lessons.
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.
Bettina is an amazing instructor and I can never wait for our next lesson!!! I just truly love working with her. She is definitely patient and all around great!!
Bettina is an incredibly fantastic teacher and I feel so priveledged to be able to work with her and hope to work with her a really long time!!
I love working with Bettina, She is a great teacher and I feel very comfortable with her. She seems to truly enjoy teaching and truly wants to help me learn. She is very easy to understand and helps with pronunciation which I appreciate so much.
Bettina is truly an amazing teacher!!! I look forward to seeing her every time!!! Each lesson is wonderfully packed full.
Bettina is a phenomenal teacher!!! I look forward to every lesson. She cares about pronunciation and I truly appreciate her working with me. She seems to really enjoy teaching and is very prepared.
