I have been giving great on-line lessons for 30 years.

I'm great at figuring out how to help you anticipate and overcome all the obstacles so that everyone has a joyful and meaningful experience from those who have experience with Jewish services to those who are experiencing a Jewish ceremony for the first time.

Shalom!

I'm a rabbi who can change your after-school driving hassles into convenient, effective on-line lessons.

I have been giving great on-line lessons for 30 years.

I'm great at figuring out how to help you anticipate and overcome all the obstacles so that everyone has a joyful and meaningful experience from those who have experience with Jewish services to those who are experiencing a Jewish ceremony for the first time.

After six years of rabbinical seminary, I received ordination in 1988 along with my Masters of Hebrew Letters.

Join the group of proud parents and happy students who get great results at home.

My Bachelor's degree is in foreign language education, so, I know all the ways to make it easy.

I also am a teacher of English and public speaking, so, I know all the methods to make your youngster confident and comfortable.

My father, of blessed memory, was a rabbi. My brother is, too. And, my mother, of blessed memory, a state teacher-of-the-year award winner, was my first religious school teacher and equaled most of my seminary professors whom I met when I went off to rabbinical college. I believe that education is an act of love and that tuning into the student and paying attention is the way to open the door to motivated learning and success.

Whether your ceremony is going to be on Zoom or in person, at home or in your synagogue or at a country club, or a hybrid, it will be a simcha, a happy occasion.

I believe what makes me most qualified is that I love to teach. The word "rabbi" means "teacher." Let me be your friendly rabbi and rabbinic friend at this important time in the life of your youngster and the life of your family.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you and making sure your student has a very positive experience.

Shana Tova ~ Happy New Year

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting to European and Russian educated adult students who want to be able to read and write easy-to-understand notes such as telephone messages without the confusion of 4 vs. 9; 1 vs. 7; o vs. a; etc. I am able to write like a European or American since I was born in Germany and came to the U.S. at 11 years of age and know this from personal experience as well as from the classroom. Additionally, I studied calligraphy (because I used to be a graphics designer) and have a good appreciation and manner to teach handwriting in an easy way. ALSO, I have experience teaching elementary age school kids who are struggling to produce legible, neat and nice English letters. We can learn quickly. It's easy and will make you feel so confident and great.

Special Needs

Speech

Speech

As a teacher of ESL (English As A Second Language) for over 30 years, I have been helping students from all over the world learn and practice the rules of clear speech so that they can be easily understood on the phone by teachers, coworkers and customer service personnel. I know how to explain the the linguistic rules of sound production in an easy way that allows students to remember and apply each lesson immediately in their personal and professional lives. Because I am an expert with non-native speakers of English, many native speakers of English have asked me to teach them achieve the same abilities that my non-native speakers achieve with my help.

Sports/Recreation

Chess

Chess

I am experienced introducing kids as well as adults to chess at which point they can enjoy the game with friends or family or accept my referral to a local chess club. That means that your youngster -- or you! -- can turn up to the first day of chess club feeling comfortable and confident and ready to play and improve. And, yes, it means that you can use chess to enhances strategic thinking as well as to enjoy quality family time. Just a few meetings are necessary to get the basics and get started having fun.
