In this private Hebrew tutoring online, beginner students learn the Hebrew alphabet, work on reading sight words, and expand their vocabulary with fun, interactive lessons. I can help kids prepare for a Bar Mitzvah or just learn the language for fun.
Online Hebrew Tutoring for Beginners
No background knowledge is needed. In this fun, interactive, one-on-one class, students will learn Hebrew based on their background and level. Beginner students will learn the Hebrew alphabet and vowels. Intermediate-level students will work on sight-reading and vocabulary.
Here is a sample of beginner topics I will teach each week using The Hebrew Primer book with interactive games, worksheets, and Zoom annotation:
Lesson 1 and 2 – Bet, Vet, Dalet, Resh, Ah and Ay vowels
Lesson 3 and 4 – Sin, Shin, Tav
Lesson 5 and 6 – Lamed, Mem, Final Mem, O and Oo vowels
Lesson 7 and 8 – Final Nun, Yud, Vav, Ayin, Alef, Silent vowel
Lesson 9 and 10 – Gimmel, Nun, Chet, Hay, Eh vowel
Lesson 11 and 12 – Chaf, Kaf, Ee vowels
Lesson 13 and 14 – Fay, Pay, Oo vowel, Koof, Tet
Lesson 15 and 16 – Tsadee, Zayin, Final Fay, Samech
Topics can also be learner-directed with topics ranging from improving reading for Bar Mitzvahs, conversational vocabulary, writing, or sight-reading.
We will play games, use worksheets I have created, and practice writing our own words.
We will also be using the annotation feature in Zoom for interactive lessons. Please be sure your child knows how to do that.
I believe that Hebrew can be fun when it’s relevant, interesting, and interactive. I enjoy sharing my love for Hebrew by showing the kids that it is useful and exciting.
I give my students the tools they need to face obstacles, persevere, and overcome challenges. In class, we use mistakes as learning opportunities, discuss big ideas, make connections, and learn to be problem solvers.
I like to have fun and be a little bit silly. I’m a kid at heart, yet still professional with a passion for learning and teaching.
My Experience with Hebrew
I attended Hebrew school from kindergarten to 9th grade. I had a Bat Mitzvah and was able to read from the Torah.
In high school, I taught 4th grade Hebrew School which included planning lessons and creating fun activities to help the kids learn the alphabet. I also substitute taught and tutored Bar and Bat Mitzvah students.
During college, I spent a summer in Israel volunteering at a summer camp. I lived with a host family and learned a lot of words, phrases, and basic conversation skills.
In 2019, I taught my son Hebrew for his Bar Mitzvah. As a beginner student, I taught my son the Hebrew alphabet and vowels and he was able to read Hebrew during his service.
