How long have you been teaching for and how long for Cactus?

I have been living in the UK for 5 years now.

Where were you born and what is the city famous for?

I was born in Israel in 1986. I grew up in the outskirts of Tel- Aviv and
lived in Tel-Aviv most of my adult life, the city is rich in culture and history.

What is your degree and teaching experience?

I have a post-graduate degree in Performance Making.

Have you ever worked in another field?

I am a theatre producer as well as a teacher. I teach privately, at WLS (West London Synagogue) and for Cactus. I speak Hebrew, English and a bit of Spanish and Arabic. I have always had а great respect for languages, especially Hebrew. My work as in actor has been enhanced by my command of Hebrew and by engaging with its highly challenging texts. I have a thorough knowledge of early and modern Jewish history. My interests in the arts and culture provide opportunities to continue learning.

What is your favourite book and why?

The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen – poignant depiction of the modern structure.

Do you have any specific language learning tips?

Listen to songs, write your own sentences in your free time. My method for tutoring depends on the student, however my main belief is that learning a language is a craft, it requires practice and passion, hence to intrigue my students I bring different kind of reading material and music that is part of the Israeli culture.


I am looking forwards to seeing you in my class!
