who am I?
My name is Matan and I'm an Israeli Hebrew teacher with year of experience, and a peace activist.

I am the Hebrew teacher of both King's College and SOAS University of London Language Centres.


Focus on Culture and Politics

I teach in a variety of methods, including speaking, listening, reading and writing. I include music and series in my lessons, and I have special courses focusing on Israeli society, culture and music.


Small Groups

I teach in small groups, and I have really speacial students from different backgrounds, and there's a unique dynamique and bond in each group.

Affordable prices

It's important to me to keep the prices affordable to everyone even though the market prices are much higher. 250£ for a 20 hours course means 12.5£ per hour! I provide discount for students and for those who need it, so please of you need a discount because of any situation do tell me and don't let money impede your Hebrew learning!

My eperience

In the past, I have taught in many Hebrew schools, including Eteacher (Rosen Hebrew School), Ulpan Kibbutz and the acclaimed Ulpan Bayit in Tel Aviv.

Reviews
You can read the most updated reviews of Hebrew With Matan on Google !
I'm very happy with my Hebrew lessons with Matan!He makes every lessons interesting and engaging. Great teacher who always inspires you and leaves you with positive feeling for the rest of the day!I recommend it and encourage you to try it😊
Really happy to have found Matan as a Hebrew teacher. I had tried Hebrew lessons before, but the online classes with Matan made the learning process more appealing to new learners. The classes are dynamic and cover all aspects of a language; grammar, new vocabulary, comprehensive reading and writing; all that surrounded by a great atmosphere. Truly recommended! ;)
Matan is a very friendly and competent teacher. He provides clear and dynamic lessons, adapting to where you start from. I particularly like the way his lessons embed all the communication competencies (reading, writing, oral understanding and speaking). The Modern Hebrew he teaches is obviously the one is use in Israel today and not one from outdated books (languages evolve quickly don't they?). If you look for a teacher to learn from scratch or improve your Hebrew skills, I would warmly recommend Matan!
Matan is patient and makes sure all the students understand what he is covering before he moves on. He has a sense of humour and makes learning fun. However, the intensive courses are just that: 'intensive'. So be prepared for a brisk pace. I've learned a lot in a very short time - and credit goes to his teaching methods. 
My students from Language Centre, SOAS University of London are the BEST הכי טובות!!They don't stop surprising me with מתנות! But, there's one letter (and student) missing - which letter is that??? This question is EASY!
I've studied Hebrew with Matan for 7 months now and can't recommend him highly enough. Matan manages to make the lessons informative but, crucially, also fun -- drawing on music, Israeli culture, and the life experiences of other students. I have had other excellent Hebrew teachers over the past 5 years, and Matan is among the best. I teach Biblical Hebrew and recently earned a PhD in Hebrew Bible and am aware how hard it can be to make language learning socially interactive; Matan does this naturally.
