About Bernie

Hailing from Long Island originally, I have now been living in New York City for the past three years (except for six months in Germany and the Netherlands). I studied History and Jewish Studies at Johns Hopkins and started a Ph.D. in Ancient Jewish History at the Jewish Theological Seminary two years ago. Now, I work at Dow Jones as a due diligence researcher. I have nine years of experience tutoring all ages and skill levels and in a variety of subjects ranging from elementary school math to SAT writing and reading to even university writing. With all students, I try not only to teach them material, but also how to be autonomous learners themselves. I try to encourage them to develop study skills as well as how to think analytically so that they can take their learning into their own hands.

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.

Bible Studies

I completed two years in graduate work in Ancient Jewish History, which included numerous Bible classes, both Old and New Testament. I am proficient in Hebrew (Biblical, Rabbinic, and Modern), Ancient Greek, Latin, and Aramaic. I also attended Jewish day school until I began university, during which time I studied almost the entire Old Testament.

College Counseling

I currently work as a volunteer with Hopkins Alumni Admissions Volunteers. My primary responsibility is to conduct interviews. Through this experience, I have obtained a nuanced perspective of the college admissions process. As a graduate student, I also took numerous classes in the New York Consortium, which included Yale, NYU, and Columbia. I have a strong understanding of how to match students to schools and how to help them maximize their applications.

European History

I took numerous European History courses in college, both medieval and modern. I speak German and lived in both Germany and the Netherlands, giving me a unique first-hand perspective as well.

Hebrew

I have been studying Hebrew since I was 4. Much of my current job in due diligence research requires reading advanced media articles, such as financial news, in Hebrew, as well as corporate filings. I have family in Israel and speak Modern Hebrew on a daily basis, and I have studied Hebrew in formal settings to the extent of taking academic translation courses.

Religion

I completed two years of graduate work in Ancient Jewish History. Thus, I am well-read in theories of religion and know a great deal about Judaism and Christianity in particular. I attended Jewish day school and was active in interfaith effort on my college campus, so my education has been quite thorough.

Social Studies

I was a History major in college and am highly knowledge of social studies. I also took a number of political science classes and tutored elementary and middle school students in social studies in high school.
