About Harry

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.

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.

Hard Of Hearing

I taught Hebrew in Sign Language to hearing impaired students in Florida in order to prepare them for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah. I learned Hebrew Sign Language while living in Israel and used it to teach Hebrew to hearing impaired immigrants from Ethiopia and Vietnam (The Boat People). I also was the teacher of several independent students referred to me from the religious community.

Hebrew

I am completely proficient in reading, writing and speaking Hebrew. I have been speaking Hebrew for over 40 years on a daily basis. I have been teaching this subject for almost 30 years. I helped prepare a Hebrew Prayer Book (Sidur) in Braille. I have been a Hebrew Special Needs teacher for many able students. My techniques have also been used to teach military personal for their language and religious needs.

Religion

I have been teaching Biblical Hebrew Religion for over 25 years. I was the only Jewish Religion teacher at my religious institution and have continued to study Religion (Old Testament) and The Talmud and other Commentaries) ever since and participate every day in studies with my peers on a daily basis. I am very proficient in many areas of Jewish Religious Studies.

Sign Language

I was a tutor to the Jewish students who were Hearing Impaired at a school in Florida. I learned Hebrew Sign Language while living in Israel and taught new immigrants from Ethiopia and Vietnam who had the need to be taught in International Sign Language. I have used this knowledge to teach students requiring this method since returning to the United States.
