Private tutor in Chicago, IL

Education

In 2015 I graduated from Ben Gurion University (Israel) with a BA in Psychology and Cognitive Sciences (Program for Excellent Students), with a GPA of 3.8. My concentration in cognitive sciences was Linguistics.

Experience

I have taught different subjects privately, in classes at university and large groups in informal settings. I love languages! Growing up in Israel, Hebrew is my native tongue, and Jewish-Israeli culture is my own. I find that sharing this beautiful language is a treat, opening up people's minds to a totally different kind of language. I have studied German for over 7 years, starting in "Goethe Institut", the official school for German endorsed by the German embassy, reaching level C1. I've put much emphasis on natural, commonly-spoken German, by surrounding myself both socially and professionally with German. I've also worked as a German-speaking social guide for German students at the my university (BGU, Israel). I have tutored beginning students of German, as well as students of advanced levels, and complex Grammar. I have a BA in Psychology and Cognitive Sciences. My education specialized in this great interest of mine - human consciousness and its different aspects - biological, physical, phenomenal, linguistic and philosophical. During my university years, I have taught an Intro to Psychology class to adults, and have personally tutored university students in lower years. I love to teach! That's why I try to teach as much as possible. My love of teaching began early on, beginning from simply explaining something to a friend. My emphasis is on an interactive, personalised, and joyful process of teaching and learning. My lessons are shaped to the greatest degree to the interests, wishes and abilities of my students. *This is a joint voyage! I am there to guide, you are the main issue!* Learning a (especially a language) can and should be a wondrous and empowering process. I encourage you to go for it and do it!! If you are interested in a professional, enriching and challenging lesson that is interactive and suited for your needs and wants, you are welcome to contact me!

Hobbies

My biggest passion in life is Improvisation. I've been improvising theatre for the past 5 years, have studied and taught in Israel, established a successful ensemble, and have taken up classes in Amsterdam, iO Chicago and San Francisco. Improv finds itself into my teaching, naturally. Music - guitar, piano and singing, is my second biggest passion after improv (and is of course interwoven in it!).
