About Joseph

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). I have been to Israel 6 times, and hope to go many more times.

I have taught Hebrew for the volunteer organization called HaYovel. The last four winters 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 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.

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 no certification, but I've taught a lot of beginner Hebrew with the volunteer organization called HaYovel. I've also taught a few open classes in my hometown. I've done a bit of personal tutoring online as well. I've also written a beginner Hebrew course.

Awesome tutor!!! — He lets you work at your own pace and comfort level. This is important for a beginner. I was more confident in class today and didn't feel as stressed as usual. Thank you, Joseph!!! ...
