University of Pittsburgh (English)
Hebrew College (Other)
Born and raised in Jerusalem, Israel, my family and I moved to Brookline, Massachusetts when I was going to High School. I simultaneously attended BOTH Brookline High and Prozdor Hebrew High School at Hebrew College. I subsequently attended, graduated and received a Teaching Degree in Hebrew Education from Hebrew College. I soon moved to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and earned a BA in English from the University of Pittsburgh.
I can teach & train in a variety of Hebrew/Jewish subjects. I specialize in Hebrew Translation, Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah Training, Hebrew Tutoring & Jewish Education in the Austin Texas area as well as at home anywhere in the world by the use of the latest, innovative on-line video technology. My teaching methods provide an effective one-on-one learning experience.
I am an active member of the ATA: American Translators Association and a member of the AATIA: Austin Area Translators and Interpreters Association.
My lessons are very affordable. Because every student learns differently and at their own pace, I adjust the training sessions according to individual needs.
I have been training my Congregation's Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah students for over a decade as well as private tutoring in Hebrew and Jewish Education. I can travel to your home or you to mine in SW Austin. We can also use Skype video as well!

Efrat makes Hebrew tutoring enjoyable with her calm, patient, fun personality. Working with her is never a chore, in fact, the hour just flies by.
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.
