I love Dana. She is the perfect Hebrew teacher for me. I’m so happy I booked a lesson with her – a decision I don’t regret! I’ve only had three lessons with her so far, but I see myself sticking with Dana for as long as it takes for me to attain absolute fluency in Hebrew; so basically a couple of years. She is very knowledgeable about the Tanakh (i.e. the Old Testament) which is the primary reason why I’m learning Hebrew. She is also very funny and extremely intelligent. Dana’s teaching style is exemplary. Being a polyglot and an author, she has a profound love for words and languages as well as a unique ability to ascertain similarities between words, leading you on a Hebrew treasure hunt in every lesson! If you appreciate a proficient and kind-hearted teacher who emphasizes structure while also adapting to the student’s needs, then Dana is the one for you. She’s truly a gem 💎 ‏תודה רבה דנה יקרה! אני מצפה לשיעור הבא… אבל יש הרבה זבובים בהר ואין אוכל בבית, למה!? חבל!!

Dana is a fantastic teacher! I appreciate her helping me discover literary beauty in Hebrew. If you love languages and etymology, Dana is someone you'll have fun nerding out with 😊

If you are looking to learn Hebrew, or even improve that which you already know, look no further than the help of Dana. Take it from me -- I started with not a clue to the language, yet Dana made our sessions together engaging and fun. She does not waste your time and her help does not end when our sessions do. Believe me, she is a great teacher and a great investment.

Dana is a fabulous teacher. She is a writer and scholar who has given me many valuable insights. Although I am a beginner, she has taught me much about the Bible. The poetry and the word meanings will surprise you when you read it with Dana in the original language.
