About Me

I'm a lifelong learner, teacher of Hebrew, English, and Arabic, and lover of language and culture. I was born in America, but grew up speaking Hebrew alongside English. I doubled down on my Hebrew language background and got my bachelor's in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations from Harvard, where I also learned Arabic.

In my experience, no matter what level you're at, language learning is all about striking a balance—speaking practice matters, but so does having a grasp of the rules, and neither matters much if you're not interested in the culture. I've learned this from my experience studying half a dozen languages, and teaching a few of my own. If we work together, I want to start by hearing what your priorities are—and I'll design a plan that helps you achieve want you want to in Hebrew.
