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 have been teaching Hebrew and Jewish studies for over 20 years. I currently teach sixth grade at Temple Har Zion and tutor students for Bar/Bat Mitzvah at Temple Judea on Furling, PA. Previously I taught at Congregation Kol Ami in Elkins Park, PA. I also do private tutoring in Hebrew and Jewish studies. I received my certification nn teaching Hebrew from the Auerbach Central Agency for Jewish Education. In working with Bar/Bat Mitzvah students, I not only help my students master their Torah and Haphtarah portions as well as the prayers but also explore the meaning of becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

I also tutor students who want an alternative to congregational religious schools. Working one on one with students, I teach each student at his/her own level and give parents continuous feed back on the progress that the students are making. I also tutor adults who are looking to become a Bar/Bat Mitzvah or would like to learn Hebrew.

knowledgable and patient tutor

I am a senior student who knows zero Hebrew and is preparing for a B'nei Mitzvah. Stephen taught me the first 6 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The repetition and great primer he chose gave me confidence to start reading two and three syllable sounds He was encouraging and knew when to push me a bit more and when to slow down and review.
