Teaching since:
January 2010

My name is Miki, I am an Israeli born illustrator, graphic artist and scholar. I would love to tutor students in all ages and levels. I have a bachelor degree in education and graphic design from the Neri Bloomfield School of Design in Haifa (Israel) and an MFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology in NY. I am a certified teacher by the Israeli Ministry of Education.

Hebrew Tutoring:
Hebrew is my first language. We will build together a program that would serve you the best and will be suitable to your own level and needs. We will use music, videos and news articles in order to help you sharpen your Hebrew!

Graphic Design:
I am an experienced illustrator and graphic designer. We will focus in the field you're interested in- rather it is comic, Adobe programs, layout and composition design, typography and more.

Love him! I thoroughly look forward to each of our lessons. Miki is so patient, the work he assigns is actually enjoyable, and our conversations are so natural. While I had a pretty strong background, all of the Hebrew I forgot is already coming back to me :) Totally exceeded expectations!

Miki is a fantastic Hebrew teacher. He takes into consideration your specific learning goals and takes the time to design a learning plan. I was very impressed by his level of preparation, expertise, and especially patience.
