About Batya

Aloha! I have been teaching in various capacities for over 10 years, including internationally. Through living abroad and learning various languages (a polyglot!), I enjoy working in the one on one format where I can provide individualized support. My M.A. is from St. John's College in Eastern Classics, and my double B.A. is from Vassar College, in Chinese and Anthropology. I love to hike and camp. I teach all ages, and many subjects, with a focus in Mandarin, Spanish, Hebrew, English, History, and Social Sciences.

I explain material clearly and simply, and work in a student-centered manner. I am friendly and kind, and have experience with a diversity of students. This includes age, skill level, personality, and ethnic/cultural background.

References are available upon request, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anthropology

I majored in Anthropology at Vassar College, and therefore received one of my bachelor's degrees in Anthropology. I received two anthropology scholarships while at Vassar to study and do research abroad. I also really enjoy it!

Bible Studies

I have been active in Bible Studies my whole life, most intensively over the last five years, privately with a teacher as well as at the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem, Israel. I am able to work in the Biblical Hebrew, Spanish, or English translations. I am able to work with the Old Testament and New Testament as needed.

Chinese

I have a bachelor's degree in Chinese from Vassar College, and lived in China and Hong Kong. I studied Classical Chinese as part of my master's degree. I have taught and tutored in Mandarin since 2011.

Classics

I intensely studied classics from 2010-2011. I received my Master's Degree in Eastern Classics. I also studied classics in undergrad at Vassar College.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored for K-6 for over 10 years. I am comfortable and enjoy tutoring all elementary subjects. I am also currently tutoring 6th and 3rd grade. I have also taught 3-6th grade.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English as a Second Language to various ages in different countries with different ability levels. I met the student at his/her skill level and we focus on what is most needed.

Hebrew

I am completely literate in Hebrew, and began learning in elementary school. I studied Hebrew (and Biblical Hebrew) for 8 months in Israel from 2011-2012. I also have been reading Hebrew prayers and texts all my life. I deeply love Hebrew and I am able to explain the language clearly and simply.

Piano

I have been playing piano since I was 7. I have been a piano accompanist for school choirs and musical theatre. I love piano and transmit that enjoyment.

Spanish

I have taught and tutored in Spanish for years. I have lived in Spanish speaking countries, and I love the language! I explain the material clearly, and follow you with what you want to learn.
