I am married and live in Manhattan, NY. I am studying for Rabbinical Ordination as well as pursuing a Master's degree in Jewish Education.
I have experience tutoring and studying with students of all backgrounds and ages. I currently tutor someone on the Upper West Side. We study the "basics of Judaism"
Having spent a couple years studying in Israel, I am fluent in reading and writing Hebrew and am somewhat fluent in speaking it. I can tutor students in reading Hebrew.
Sports, Drumming, and reading John Grisham novels (amongst others) are some of my hobbies and passions!
I have 15+ years of experience studying Hebrew texts in schools and college, as well as two years of post high school study abroad in Israel.
I have taken 2 courses of Hebrew grammar in college.
Currently, I tutor an adult male in the basics of Hebrew Prayer, using a Hebrew prayerbook as our guide.
Next year, I will hopefully be tutoring elementary school students in Hebrew text/grammar.
