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 simply, is amazing, each Hebrew word is holding thousands of years of history behind it and Dana is the one who decodes that mystery for you :)

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.

Dana is knowledgeable, personable, and understands the mechanics of language in a way that makes her teaching clear and easy to pick up. I love that she uses her students interests as jumping off points for her lessons and incorporates her knowledge of various languages, pop culture, music, art, and more to help her students connect to the language. She is fun to learn from and her teaching methods are effective, personalized and unique!
