Tamar is a great Hebrew teacher. I look so forward to my Monday and Wednesday classes with her and the others. Tamar takes her time and makes everything easy to follow. I also feel like the other students are all on my same level and it’s great to meet friends from all over wanting to learn Hebrew, just like me.
Tamar’s creative use of technology is the piece I needed to kick my Hebrew learning to the next level. She’s patient and listens well to her students’ needs and concerns, and she adapts the lessons to our various learning styles. Plus, meeting other students around the globe has been such a gift! I hope we can all meet in person some day soon!
At the outset, one stands before the mountain of a new language daunted and terrified at the heights one hopes to scale to learn even a little. But with Tamar as your guide, you swiftly find yourself accumulating knowledge and skill. Before you realize it, her prepared, disciplined approach, filled with multi-media variety and shaped by her always-pleasant manner has brought you to the foothills of understanding and comprehension. You can see how her method and expertise as a teacher are working their magic. With Tamar leading you, there is no limit to how high you can climb.
Both Tamar and Gidon are excellent teachers and very patient. My experience with them is as tutors for learning Hebrew. They work with the student and gear the lessons to the students’ needs. For me, this has been in my area of expertise, agronomy and soils. My Hebrew conversations have involved plants, urban agriculture, how and where to plant crops, links in Hebrew to agronomy websites. I highly recommend them.
Tamar is an excellent teacher. Beyond her knowledge of the Hebrew language, Tamar knows how to teach the language to students. Tamar’s breadth of knowledge makes her a stellar instructor. Her warmth, graciousness, patience, dedication, and caring make her a gem in the world of educators. We are so fortunate to be working with her and I cannot recommend her more highly.
Gidon taught me conversational Hebrew on a regular basis over the telephone, for about two years. When I told him that I like poetry and songs, he added them to his teaching: for me a very joyful way of learning! We also used to discuss what was happening in Israel and in the world. He always adjusted the curriculum to my needs to better motivate me. He was creative in his approach and we did what was best for my way of learning.
