About Rabbi Reuben

Shalom, Hello, I am a native Israeli and a liberal rabbi with an earlier degree in clinical social work. I possess 20 years of tutoring experience with both children and adults in Hebrew reading, writing and conversation through the Solomon Schechter Day School system and the Hebrew Learning Circles after-school program. Additionally, I tutored students in English as a substitute teacher in the public school system.

Two educational principles will guide my work with your child: 1. Utilizing games, drills and teaching techniques that are especially appropriate to your child's learning style. 2. Building personal rapport with your child allowing him/her to trust, relax and learn effectively. I look forward to helping your child succeed.

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

As a Rabbi I am a student and teacher of the Hebrew Bible and its commentaries. I currently teach a weekly bible class for Hebrew Learning Circles.

Hebrew

I am a native Israeli and a Rabbi. I have been teaching Hebrew reading, writing and conversation privately to children and adults as well as in the Jewish day school system. With young students I work heuristically and by matching the teaching methodology to the child's learning style.

Macintosh

I have been an enthusiastic Macintosh owner and user since 1990 for both personal and work purposes. I am particularly familiar with MacBook Pro and iMac desktop and operating system X 10.7.5. I am proficient in the use of Mail, iCal and Address Book and in their integration with third party contact management programs as well as with Gmail.

I currently train new administrative assistants in our office to use Mac.

Public Speaking

As chief instructor with Hebrew Learning Circles' Bar and Bat Mitzvah training program, I have coached hundreds of young students in writing, rehearsing and delivering their first public speech. A combination of composition techniques followed by a series of mental and physical exercises help a speaker maximize his or her innate speaking capacity. I follow in the footsteps of my own oration teacher, Rabbi David Fass of New City, NY. I speak nationally to adult audiences on a variety of ethical and cultural topics.
