About Miriam


Bio

I'm a Yale grad who lived in Israel for nearly 35 years and recently returned to the U.S. When I first arrived in Israel my Hebrew was basic, but within a relatively short time I achieved a high level and became a Hebrew-to-English translator. I've also studied French, Italian, Spanish, Latin, Arabic, and Russian, so I understand the perspective of the language learner in general and of Hebrew learners in particular. I’ve tutored English to Israelis and Hebrew to Americans.

I'm a Yale grad who lived in Israel for nearly 35 years and recently returned to the U.S. When I first arrived in Israel my Hebrew was basic, but within a relatively short time I achieved a high level and became a Hebrew-to-English translator. I've also studied French, Italian, Spanish, Latin, Arabic, and Russian, so I understand the perspective of the language learner in general and of Hebrew learners in particular. I’ve tutored English to Israelis and Hebrew to Americans.

Because I lived in Israel for many years, I know Hebrew the way it is spoken by native-born Israelis. I take an individualized approach to teaching Hebrew. Every language learner’s goals are different and everyone has a different way of learning languages. First I find out your level, but also your goals in learning Hebrew. Then I fit the lessons to your needs. Do you want to be able to speak but don’t want a heavy emphasis on grammar? We’ll focus on conversation. Are you looking to be able to read scholarly articles? Our emphasis will be a good understanding of high-level vocabulary.

I offer the benefit of my own experience with Hebrew to those who want to reach a higher level. I work mainly with adults but am happy to tutor high school or college students.

Contact me and we'll work together to achieve your goals in the way that works best for you.

Hebrew

Hebrew

For several decades I lived in Jerusalem and learned to speak, read, and write Hebrew. For much of that time I worked as a Hebrew-to-English translator. I translated books and articles for professors, think tanks, and other clients, on subjects ranging from Middle Eastern politics to Islamic law to archaeology to early childhood development. I know the way Israelis speak Hebrew, I know the grammar, and I know how to learn a foreign language.

Sandra, 1 lesson with Miriam

Excellent Tutor

Miriam is a phenomenal tutor. At one point, I was considering dropping my Hebrew class, but I am grateful to her because she was able to help me significantly. She was patient and made sure to make the most of the alloted time. I highly recommend her and look forward to another tutoring session with her as well.

Alexandros, 1 lesson with Miriam

Fluent in multiple disciplines & Great Teacher

Genuinely helped me learn & advance my knowledge of Hebrew. Miriam not only helped me prepare for my upcoming historical presentation in Hebrew, but also taught me new vocabulary, syntax and grammar. I now feel more confident in my articulating the information in my presentation.
