About Rina

If you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced Hebrew learner I can help you with Hebrew grammar, syntax, comprehension, reading and writing as well as conversation.

If your goal is to learn conversational Hebrew I can help you gain the confidence to carry on conversations with native speakers!

No more memorizing index cards or fumbling for the right conjugation or tense. Over the past 20 years I have developed a system that makes learning the Hebrew language quick, easy, and extremely effective. It involves games and other engaging activities that minimize your effort, and maximizes your results.

I will help you feel completely ready for your next trip to Israel, or an upcoming event with Hebrew speaking friends/family.

I have over 20 years of experience as a Jewish Educator in prominent Jewish Day Schools as well as Congregational/Religious Jewish schools in New York City. In 2006, I received the Grinspoon Steinhardt award for excellence in Jewish Education of Greater New York, and my poetry has been regularly published in the "Maariv" Hebrew weekly newspaper.

No matter what your goal is, I promise you that I can help you achieve it faster, easier, and more effectively than anywhere else. And if you are not COMPLETELY satisfied, I will give you a FULL REFUND.

Tutoring with me includes:

-FREE initial phone consultation and personalized lesson plan
-1 time offer! 1 FREE hour of tutoring after the first four lessons
-Flexible meeting times and locations
-Tailored lessons to meet your needs/goals
-Customized worksheets to enhance your learning
-100% satisfaction guarantee

Looking forward to hearing from you!

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.


I was born and raised in Israel, and am proficient in the Hebrew language (grammar, vowels, phonics, vocabulary, etc.). My Hebrew poetry has been published for 3 years in the Hebrew newspaper "Maariv." I have over 20 years of experience teaching in private Jewish day schools in Manhattan. I am the recipient of the Grinspoon Steinhardt Award for excellence in Jewish education for 2006.
