My Story & My Passion
Hi! My name’s Nir. I have a 2 BA degrees in Social Work and Psychology, and over 4 years of teaching experience. I’ve been able to help Hundreds of students succeed in becoming confident and independent language users and learners.
I’ve worked in many language schools in the world, and have taught students from 3 different countries(Israel, Germany and China). My students work in a variety of interesting professions, and range from being lawyers and doctors, to high tech and accountants. However, regardless of their profession, my students always have the same goals and traits – they’re determined, highly motivated, and have a strong desire to improve themselves and invest in their future. My students REFUSE to let their Hebrew stop them from reaching their goals.
My passion lies in removing the FEAR which Hebrew learners have. I remove the fear of speaking and making mistakes in Hebrew, and instead, I replace them with a confident, motivated, and highly independent version of themselves. I motivate students to finally apply for the job of their dreams in Israel. I push them to come to Israel and speak with native speakers. I support them when they’re finding their feet and just learning the basics of Hebrew.
To have another language is to possess a second soul.

Hobbies and Interests
I know that quite a few people are curious about what I do in my spare time.
I read a lot of self-help, personal development, and biography books(In German,English,Hebrew and Spanish).
I really like learning new languages and whenever I have free time I learn a new language. I currently speak Hebrew, English, German and Spanish. And these days I'm learning Russian and Chinese
There is nothing more fun than running. It's one of my favorite hobbies. No matter where I am you will always find me running. When i finish to run i feel just amazing and it helps me to sort out my thoughts, and it is also of course healthy.
There is nothing more fun than traveling the world. Get to know different cultures and foods. Over the past few years I have traveled to 40 countries and I plan to travel a lot more (and of course to teach you Hebrew from there).
One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.
