Background:

I am originally from Israel. I received my BA in Hebrew Language and Literature from The Hebrew University in Jerusalem. There, I also completed my Teaching Certificate Credentials. I taught Hebrew language at The Hebrew University at their intensive language course Ulpan and I was one of the members evaluating and developing the Hebrew Language workbooks.

I received my PhD thesis in 1979 in Applied Linguistics and ESL from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. There, I taught Hebrew Language at their Jewish Studies department and coordinated their Hebrew language track. This led me to write my thesis on Teaching Hebrew to American Students, concentrating on the key areas that constitute the source of the problem in the acquisition of Hebrew by American students.

My experience continued as I taught Hebrew at the Jewish Studies departments of The University of Minnesota and subsequently of CSULB. Currently, I teach at The Hebrew Academy in Huntington Beach at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. I also teach there an Adult Education course in Kabbalah- Chassidism.

Teaching Philosophy:

I believe that one of the keys to the success of language teaching (or any teaching) is the teacher's personality. I care about my students and their needs. I strive at building a warm, open, happy and comfortable environment, where the students feel at ease and are not self- conscious as they venture and progress, step by step, in the acquisition of the language. I have an eclectic style. I choose the language techniques that have proven to be the most effective in foreign language teaching and acquisition.

Goals:

My goals are for the students to achieve Hebrew proficiency of the level they are taught; master the four language skills: reading, writing, speaking (oral expression), and listening (understanding); become familiar with Israeli culture; communicate and function in a variety of natural/ actual situations of Israeli daily life.

Materials and methodology:

All of this is done step by
