Personal Description:

I am a native Hebrew speaker, with Israeli Teaching Certificate. I hold a PhD degree from at SOAS, University of London, and my dissertation focused on Israeli society, Israeli diaspora and diasporic Hebrew. I am the author of the Hebrew learning book "Hebrew for All" (Haifa: Pardes, 2020) which offers a modern and feminist approach to the study of the language. Apart from teaching, I am also an author, and I published my first book in Hebrew in 2016.
I'm friendly, organized and motivating teacher, with more than 10 years of teaching experience (in Israel, UK, Germany, in schools, after-school programs and universities and in Skype with students from Russia, Canada and the UK).
I currently teach only via skype. It works great and even saves time commuting :) I offer a 30 minutes free trail lesson
I also offer a 10% discount for student who sign up for 10 classes in advance.

Teaching Experience:

I started teaching during my national service, and I was teaching Hebrew to Palestinian kids in Lod and to migrants in South Tel-Aviv. I later gained a teaching diploma from the "Kibbutz Seminar Collage" in Tel Aviv. After moving to London to study for my PhD at SOAS, I have had the opportunity to teach academic courses as a Teacher Assistance at the university. I also worked part time teaching Hebrew at the New London Synagogue. I worked there with kids on a Sunday school, and with adults going through Conversion to Judaism Hebrew program. In the past 4 years I have mostly been tutoring privately, and I am enjoying it greatly. You are more than welcome to try a free trail class with me.

Teaching Approach:

I strongly believe in learning while using materials and topics that are related to the students, which is why I prepare different classes and different reading material for each of my students. You will not need to buy an expensive Hebrew book, and I will provide all work materials.
I always have a first meeting or talk with my students, understanding where he or she stands, what is their level, why do they need Hebrew (for research? for family? religious reasons?) and I structure my classes based on the needs and the objective of the students.
If you choose to start a Hebrew course with me you will be required to do homework each week and dedicated yourself to learning. A new language requires time and commitment!
