I am a graduate of New York University with a background in linguistic anthropology and middle eastern studies with a specialization in language acquisition. I have a combined five years of experience working with students learning a language (both Hebrew and English) and have an advanced understanding of the mechanics of the English language. I have also spent the last five years working as a legal assistant and word processor, during which time a sizable portion of my duties included proofreading and document review, which may be of interest...
I have worked as a Hebrew school teacher for first, second, and fifth graders. I have taught English and assisted in English classes abroad in Israel, and I have tutored English to ESL learners in the US.
