I was raised with 12 years of private Jewish education which includes Hebrew and a number of Biblical topics. As an adult I spent 8 years in Israel studying and received a BA in Talmudic Law and Rabbinic ordination. I also received a teachers certificate from the Israeli Ministry of Education. Yes, legally speaking, it might require that and a dollar to get a cup of coffee in this country but, legally speaking, the day after your state I.D. expires, they no longer can say that it is really you in the picture.
So I have skills, patience and a sense of humor. And all that will only matter once we get together and see that you/your child is comfortable, engaged and feels good about their accomplishment.
If you are looking for assistance in Hebrew or growth in Jewish biblical studies, let's get you to where you'd like to be.
I went to Israel and spent 8 years studying. I received a teacher's certificate, BA of Talmudic Law and Rabbinic ordination. During those years I had already started tutoring and mentoring newcomers.
Returning to the states in 2002, I've tutored and taught bible studies on and off and have continued to personally study, continuously, ever since.
I started out with 8 years at a private Jewish day school. Hebrew was part n' parcel to the system [and way of life.] From there I went on to 4 years at a private Jewish high school. After high school I spent my first year in Israel. I volunteered three weeks in a small developing community with no English speakers at all. I relearned all the previous 12 years in those three weeks. That or starve. Back in the states my brother married an Israeli, so she kept my use of the language active. Then at 32 I went to Israel again and spent 8 years studying. Received teachers certificate, BA of Talmudic Law and Rabbinic ordination.
Back in the states, again, I taught beginners the Hebrew language using the ArtScroll Stone Edition of the 5 Books of Moses as the text book. It pleased those wanting to learn Hebrew and it satiated those wanting to study the bible. Yes, I was able to fill two bids with one Stone.
