I am an advanced Language Tutor, specializing in Hebrew. I have over 25 years experience teaching Basic Hebrew to the Beginners, Advanced Hebrew for the more proficient and advanced Hebrew to the ones who want to continue their Hebrew Education. I prepare students for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah, helping the student to overcome and improve the difficulties in that preparation. If their are learning disabilities, such as being Add or the student is hearing impaired, I can help. I am proficient in Hebrew Sign Language. If the student is vision impaired, I can help as I can teach Hebrew in Braille. Over the years, I have developed my own style of reaching the student and helping him come to desire more and more. I have many students, both young and old who have advanced to very successful careers.

I lived in Israel on a kibbutz for over 23 years. I served in the Israel Defense Forces as an Officer. During this time, I obtained my advanced degree in languages. I became proficient in HUNGARIAN, ROMANIAN AND OTHERS. I taught English as a 2nd Language in Israel and also as a tutor here in the United States. I have many SPECIAL NEEDS students who have succeeded being Bar or Bat Mitzvah with my special techniques. I am proud of my successes and continue to strive to improve my techniques to reach the challenging students.

AMAZING! GREAT for Bar Mitzvah tutoring!

Harry is the best Bar Mitzvah tutor. I have twin boys about to have a Bar Mitzvah. They had been working with a Rabbi but one son needed extra help. I reached out to Harry and Harry started working with one of my boys. After only two lessons, my son started improving. It was remarkable! Then, the Rabbi could no longer tutor my boys. Harry stepped up and is now tutoring both boys. They love him! He's very knowledgeable and very patient. He's teaching them their entire Torah portions. Harry is really great and I can't recommend him enough!

Engaging

Harry was engaging and informative. He encouraged my son to want to interact and practice his Hebrew. We look forward to working with him and expanding our son’s mastery of Hebrew.

Great Hebrew Tutor

Wonderful Hebrew tutor for our 9 year old son. He really loves the lessons. We are thrilled with his progress learning the Conservative Siddur (prayerbook). Harry is very sweet with our son.

Amazing Hebrew Tutor

We are so grateful to have found Harry. He has been working with my son who is studying for his Bar Mitzvah. My son actually enjoys his sessions which is a surprise because he absolutely disliked learning Hebrew in school. Harry has obviously made it enjoyable! He is very reliable and willing to go above and beyond. We can't thank you him enough!

Great tutor, works very well with my son

Harry is engaging and interesting as well as very patient. He works extremely well with my young adult son who has Aspergers. They are working on intermediate to advanced spoken and written Hebrew. My son is taking a course but needed some extra support outside the classroom.

Thank you Harry!!

Over the past several months I've been learning conversational Hebrew with Harry. All the people who I practice Hebrew with are impressed with how much I've improved. I owe this to Harry's patient and conscientious teaching style. We went over simple and complex vocabulary, past and present conjunctions, grammar, sentence structure, and much much more. His stories and cultural knowledge also added great context to what I was learning to help it all sink in. Thank you Harry!!!

Knowledgeable, personable.

They really click well together! My son loves studying Hebrew now! He is special needs and Harry is very very patient with him. My son no longer dreads studying for his bar mitzvah and enjoys his sessions.

Fantastic Hebrew tutor!

Harry is incredibly knowledgable, patient, kind, and welcomes questions. His many years of teaching Hebrew are of great benefit to his students. I very highly recommend him as a tutor of Biblical and modern Hebrew.

Thorough and Patient and Well Versed Teacher

We covered many topics in each lesson. Harry is patient and conducts the lesson perfectly with his timing and ease of his explanations. He makes sure that whatever his teaching is is that it is understood by the student.
