I have been working as an accredited Hebrew as a Foreign Language teacher at Rothberg International School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and other academic centers for the last decade. Between the years of 2010 and 2012 I was the Program Coordinator of Winter Ulpan at Rothberg International School, being in charge of 30 teachers and 300 students.
I was born in Moscow so I speak, read and write fluent Russian. I have also mastered the English, Spanish and Portuguese languages for which I have fulfilled all university levels. In addition, I\'ve studied Biblical and Talmudic Hebrew.
I teach all of the official Hebrew language levels, both in groups and in private lessons, to a variety of students: new Immigrants to Israel, clergy, Palestinians, journalists, diplomats, university students, etc. This experience has granted me a deep knowledge of the methods and different dynamics of teaching and interacting with international students.
Since February 2014 I co-direct and teach Hebrew at Ulpan Hebreo Sefarad in Madrid, a private Hebrew as a foreign language school, that has nearly 100 students, both adults and children, in all levels of modern and biblical Hebrew. Sincce October 2017 I also teach Hebrew at the General Linguistic and Oriental Studies departement in the Complutense University of Madrid.
I have an M.A cum laude in Spanish and Latin American history, and I have studied the Semitic languages M.A degree, both at the Hebrew university of Jerusalem. I also have a teachers degree from the same university.
In September 2018 starting my PHD researching the Hebrew Language Academy.
