Overview

Hi / Shalom / שלום

I have experience with teaching beginners, intermediate and very advanced Hebrew students. I was and am teaching mainly adults of any age from 16- to 90-year-olds.

During my lessons, I use different methods to teach new material, to practice it and to engage the student in conversations in Hebrew. Following each lesson a summary of the lesson is emailed to the students. The summary includes review, my recordings in Hebrew, links and more practice options.

One of the focuses of my Hebrew teaching career between 2014-2016 was developing a program for teaching to read in Hebrew. The result of these 2 years’ work is a series of 8 booklets “Learn to Read Hebrew in 1 to 8 Weeks!” –which will be available in Amazon on January 2017.

My brand name, “Ivrit By Orit”, includes Ivrit, which means Hebrew in Hebrew, and my first name Orit, which means 'light' in Hebrew.
After you sign-up for my lessons, I will forward you my website and FaceBook links where you can learn more about me, the Hebrew language, and Israeli and Jewish culture..

First lesson, so not a lot to go on - but I think she is excellent! I am somewhat fluent already in Hebrew, and she was able to match my level with her instruction.

I took 120 hours of classes with Orit between June and August. In that time I went from knowing no Hebrew to being able to read, write, speak and understand conversations as well as short stories. Orit was always punctual, and I loved the well-developed course materials. We covered much more material than we would have been able to in a large class. Overall, a great language learning experience!
למדתי עברית עם אורית בשנת2015. עכשיו אני יכולה ללמוד, לכתוב, לדבר ולשמוע עברית. הקורס היה מצוין!

Orit is a wonderful teacher! She is extremely patient, knowledgeable, and kind. She has a very clear lesson plan and continually reinforces topics that I have learned/am studying. I'm excited to continue my studies with her. Highly recommended!
