I am a dedicated educator with over thirty-five years' teaching experience. I have had success preparing students at all levels for a wide variety of subjects, including Hebrew Regents, English Matriculation exams abroad, Bar and Bat Mitzvah preparation, conversational Hebrew and Bible Studies. My licensing includes Hebrew, English and French high school certification, Common Branches elementary, and a degree in administration. I am currently teaching a beginning Hebrew conversational course to adults and am myself enrolled in a course in an advanced Judaic learning institute. I love to learn and to help others acquire new skills. My approach differs with each individual that I teach, depending on his/her needs and ability. My belief is that every student can progress with the right tools and methods.
