About Ilana

Hi Tutees! My name is Ilana L. and I just moved to Brooklyn. I am doing a year of service with AmeriCorps working in legal aid for low-income New Yorkers. I had been teaching and tutoring for about three years now and have worked with students on a wide range of ages. Last year, I worked as a Hebrew School tutor for ten year olds, teaching bible, Hebrew language and Jewish holidays. Additionally, I have been studying Hebrew and Arabic language for years and have lived in both Jerusalem and Amman. I am proficient in both Hebrew and Arabic and am available for tutoring in both languages.

In addition to language skills, I have experience tutoring in reading comprehension, writing, elementary math, science and history. I am excited to work with grade school aged kids on their homework, classwork and general classroom confidence. I look forward to meeting you in a local library or cafe for lessons.

I just graduated with a B.A. from the Elliott School of International Affairs and have been spending much of my time proofreading my own social studies papers as well as my friends'. In D.C., I worked with a program called Reading Partners, tutoring elementary schools students on-on-one, helping them to improve their reading skills, their writing and their classroom confidence. I have walked many students through a routine that had allowed them to reach their goals and increase their comfort with language. I am a creative and patient tutor and I think outside of the box to make lessons relatable and enjoyable for children.

Please e-mail to find out more about what I can offer in terms of grade school tutoring, Hebrew or Arabic language!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Arabic

I have spent four years learning Modern Standard Arabic and seven months living in the Levant area- 6 months in Amman, Jordan and one Month in Ramallah. I have worked as a project development assistant for a small NGO in Amman where I regularly used Arabic to converse with locals.

Hebrew

I have been studying Hebrew since I was in elementary student and have lived in Jerusalem. I taught Hebrew language to third graders at Adas Israel religious school in Washington, D.C. for one year.
