If you want to learn Hebrew or French (reading, speaking and writing). I'll be happy to help you achieve this goal.

I have a BA cum laude in Hebrew language and French language and literature (cum laude honor) as well as a MA with thesis in Hebrew language, both degrees from Haifa University, Israel. In 1993 I received the Israeli Parliament (Knesset) Award for excellent academic achievement. In 1990 as a senior in high school the French embassy in Israel awarded me a free trip to France for writing the best French composition.

Whether I am teaching basic Hebrew/French or more advanced level, one of my goals is to keep you challenged and engaged. I assign homework every lesson and can provide reports as needed.

I have a policy cancellation of 12 hours in advance.

We can meet either in my house or at your preferred location.

I look forward to hearing from you and speaking Hebrew and/or French with you.
