About Ken

I am a father of three with a Ph.D., in education from NYU. I am fluent in Hebrew and provide language and bar-mitzvah lessons.

My teaching approach is methodical and patient. I tailor the lessons to the needs of the student, while adapting to his/her learning style.

I travel yearly to Israel. I am a precision-oriented Torah-reader, and use an educated, scientific approach to teaching the student so that s/he really understands what s/he is doing, and is able to perform at a very high level. I also use on-line and recorded aids in order to maximize learning while controlling cost.

I explain the subject in a straightforward and lucid manner. I allow the student to go at his/her own pace, while stimulating self-learning. In the end, the student gains self-confidence and pleasure in learning the subject.

I am a patient, kind, and humorous person. I am a friend who partners with my students, rather than being a "mentor." I believe that learning should be fun.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Hebrew

I am a yeshivah graduate, attended Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and a frequent visitor to Israel. I am fluent in Hebrew and maintain a Hebrew-speaking home with my Israeli wife and three children. I regularly read the Torah in my synagogue. I teach Hebrew language and (Ashkenazi-intoned trope) Bar-mitzvah preparation in either Ashkezi or Israeli accents.
