Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Howard made the daunting and insurmountable task of teaching our son Hebrew from scratch and his Torah portion in less than a year look like a breeze. He made the lessons fun and appropriately challenging and managed to do it all with humor, curiosity in our whole child, and love. Our son grew in his confidence, love of learning and acquired a new teacher and friend in Howard. Howard is incredibly patient, easy to work with, and has an overall calming presence. Our son likened Howard to ‘Ted Lasso ‘- in that he was always smiling, energetic, and the ultimate champion and believer in our child and his abilities. I could not imagine a more kind, humble, and devoted person to have walked M into this precious transition to manhood.

Like my brother said after our magical Bar Mitzvah weekend, “We could use a few more Howards in this world!”

Howard did such a great job with the Bat Mitzvah for our first kid that we used him for the next two kids. We wouldn’t think of having a Bar or Bat Mitzvah without him! Our three kids are all very different learners, and he was able to create a positive and rewarding experience for all of them (and for the entire family).

We call our sons tutor Howard, the “Hebrew whisperer”
He took away all the doubts and worries that our son had about completing his Bar Mitzvah portion.
He makes the material approachable and understandable no matter what your level or learning needs. He is always positive and a pleasure to work with. We were so lucky to find him.
