After 12 years of private Jewish education which included Hebrew and various Biblical topics I spent 8 years in Israel studying and received a BA in Talmudic Law and Rabbinic ordination. I also qualified to earn a teachers certificate from the Israeli Ministry of Education. Add to that patience and a sense of humor. Most important is, once we get together, seeing that you or your child is comfortable, engaged and feels good about the session.

Dan not only has been teaching hebrew to me but provides background explanations and information in back of the subject. I am making progress in learning thanks to his instruction. As well he has a very good disposition which makes the lessons a fruitful experience.
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.
I went to Israel and spent 8 years studying. I received a teacher's certificate, BA of Talmudic Law and Rabbinic ordination. During those years I had already started tutoring and mentoring newcomers.
Returning to the states in 2002, I've tutored and taught bible studies on and off and have continued to personally study, continuously, ever since.
I started out with 8 years at a private Jewish day school. Hebrew was part n' parcel to the system [and way of life.] From there I went on to 4 years at a private Jewish high school. After high school I spent my first year in Israel. I volunteered three weeks in a small developing community with no English speakers at all. I relearned all the previous 12 years in those three weeks. That or starve. Back in the states my brother married an Israeli, so she kept my use of the language active. Then at 32 I went to Israel again and spent 8 years studying. Received teachers certificate, BA of Talmudic Law and Rabbinic ordination.
Back in the states, again, I taught beginners the Hebrew language using the ArtScroll Stone Edition of the 5 Books of Moses as the text book. It pleased those wanting to learn Hebrew and it satiated those wanting to study the bible. Yes, I was able to fill two bids with one Stone.
I am pursuing and intending teaching Judaism and not any and all religions at large. I was raised orthodox and orthodox elementary schools and highschools are hours longer a day because half our day are religious studies. (My high school let out at 5:30pm.)
Even after that foundation i pursued higher religious studies in Jerusalem Israel where i received a Bachelor's in Talmudic Law and a teaching certificate from the Israel Ministry of Education. If you send me an email address I'll send you a picture of the diploma. You might be looking for a theological degree from a university. That would qualify me for a left wing liberal view of what religious isn't. I hope to teach what it is.
