Overview

Shalom!

My name is Miri. I'm originally from Tel Aviv Israel, but moved to the US as a child. I'm very friendly, very organized and very serious. I am great at doing a full hour of teaching that is also interesting and fun. I have taught English as a second language, tutored Hebrew & prepared kids for their bar-mitzvah for over a decade. I have also worked with kids, youth and adults all over Israel teaching Hebrew,mathematics & English at Palestinian schools and immigrants community centers.

Teaching Approach:
I strongly believe in learning while using materials and subjects that are related to the students, which is why I prepare different classes and different reading material for each of my students. I always have a first meeting or talk with my students, understanding where he or she stands, what is their level, why do they need Hebrew or English (for research? for family occasion? religious reasons?) and I structure my classes based on the needs and the objective of the students.

This is now my 6th session with Miri and I just bought 12 more. She is so patient and flexible to my work schedule. I have learned so much in the short amount of time. I am confident she can make me fluent. I am already using the basics in everyday conversations. Miri Rocks!
