About Me

I have a BA in English Linguistics, and an MA in Hebrew Bible and Modern Hebrew. I have tutored English privately for over three years, and taught Modern Hebrew at Brigham Young University for three years. I love music, particularly singing, and have trained classically for over a decade. Learning languages is a passion for me, and I have studied Hebrew, Cantonese, Mandarin, German, Spanish and Italian. I believe that learning can (and should) be fun, and I love to incorporate my students' interests into language teaching and learning.
