About Joseph


Bio

My name is Joseph. I've lived in Colorado all my life. In the past years my love for the Hebrew language has grown so much. I always had a desire to go to Israel, but I really didn't think it would ever happen. In 2011 the first opportunity arose for me to go to Israel with a volunteer organization. During that first visit to Israel I began to feel an intense desire to learn Hebrew. As soon as I got home I started using Rosetta Stone, I finished that course in about a year, and from...

My name is Joseph. I've lived in Colorado all my life. In the past years my love for the Hebrew language has grown so much. I always had a desire to go to Israel, but I really didn't think it would ever happen. In 2011 the first opportunity arose for me to go to Israel with a volunteer organization. During that first visit to Israel I began to feel an intense desire to learn Hebrew. As soon as I got home I started using Rosetta Stone, I finished that course in about a year, and from there started seeking any other possible way to learn Hebrew. Since then I've been actively studying Hebrew with friends, watching Hebrew movies, speaking with Israelis (whenever in Israel). Since 2011 I have been blessed to spend 1-3 months in Israel each year, and this helps keep me current with the language and culture.

I have taught Hebrew for the volunteer organization called HaYovel. Each winter since 2012 we've held an intense Hebrew study course that I've been privileged to teach at. Every year I'm inspired to continue my own studies and even more so to encourage and help others to learn the amazing Hebrew language. I also teach Hebrew a few months out of the year in California for an organization called "Growing In Torah."

I am not a native Hebrew speaker, but I feel that this gives me a teaching advantage in some ways since I understand the usual struggles that English speakers have in grasping the Hebrew language. Some of this knowledge comes from my own struggles when starting to learn Hebrew, and some of it comes from teaching Hebrew for the volunteer organization that I first visited Israel with. I have also published a book on Hebrew learning. I was inspired to write this book because of my own struggles to find Hebrew instruction that really started at the very beginning, and didn't jump ahead too quickly.
I've taught Hebrew in a classroom setting with up to 25 students (from all age groups), and also via an online collaboration program. I especially love helping beginners get started with Hebrew, because I know how hard that part is on your own.

I teach modern Hebrew, but just by studying the modern language you will be able to understand the majority of Biblical texts. I do believe in the Bible, and I would happily supplement classes with Biblical texts if the student is interested. However I do not teach religion/or Biblical Hebrew, and the focus of the class would always be the Hebrew language.

Please feel free to contact me for more info etc. I'll do my best to respond within one day.

Hebrew

I've taught a lot of beginner Hebrew with the volunteer organization called HaYovel. I also do several private weekly tutoring lessons online. I've written a beginner Hebrew course called "Hebrew from the Very Beginning." Many times I have seen the advantage that I have as a native English speaker when teaching Hebrew to other native English speakers. I had to learn Hebrew from square one as well, so I understand the difficulties that can arise from the English speakers perspective when learning Hebrew.

Joseph was wonderful with my son!

Thank you so much for patiently teaching us some conversational Hebrew! My five year old felt comfortable with this tutor and he answered all of our language questions wonderfully.

Geneva, 15 lessons with Joseph

perfect teacher!!

He knew exactly how to guide me through the words and phrases. Really bringing it down to my English level. I️ had a ton to study afterwards which was great!!

Eva, 2 lessons with Joseph

Really knows his subject

Despite some technical difficulties, I enjoyed the lesson. Joseph is knowledgeable and very patient. He's flexible about teaching toward my goals rather than following a set formula.
