There is nothing more that I love about tutoring than helping students who are having difficulty in a subject. I utilize various teaching techniques to create the best mode of learning for that particular student. If I cannot help the student for whatever reason, either due to a personality clash or a lack of effort on the student's part, then I shall drop that student. It helps no one if the student cannot learn! I have taught in public high school and middle school for thirty-four years, as well as in a community college as an adjunct faculty member for three years. My track record is excellent as I have helped many students pass New York State Regents in German, Hebrew, and Global Studies and Geography. I shall not tutor any student unless he/she is willing to make a commitment to put forth his/her best effort. If this happens, then he/she will most likely succeed in learning.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Hebrew

I have taught Hebrew language for nineteen years in public high school. There were four levels which I taught, not including independent study. This was a Hebrew Regents course. I have traveled to Israel eleven times and studied Hebrew language at top Ulpanim for two summers. In addition to public high school experience, I have taught spoken Ulpan Hebrew for three years at a community college.
The Hebrew language is a unique language whose root system makes it unique from all other languages. I appreciate the formation of words as well as the shapes of the letters, which I try my best to communicate to all my students. The beauty of Hebrew makes learning the language a true art form!

Great tutor — Steven is a wonderful tutor. I am taking a college online Hebrew course that doesn't really have a teacher. Steven is acting as that teacher and making an otherwise impossible situation a good learning experience. He is giving me confidence that I can succeed! ...
