Boost your Hebrew skills

I design a unique learning experience that engages, motivates and boosts students’ progress two or more times faster than in a classroom environment. Lessons are personalized to the student’s interests, learning style and fluency level.

My name is Michal Lucent. I was born and raised in Israel. For several years, I have been teaching and tutoring Hebrew at religious schools and to private students in the Bay Area. Currently, I tutor Hebrew and teach Jewish studies and Hebrew at Congregation Beth Jacob (Redwood City) and at Congregation Beth David (Saratoga). I also taught at Congregation Beth Am and at Yavneh Day School. I’m excited to teach Hebrew and inspire students to strengthen a connection to Israel. I love working with children of all ages, from K to 12th grade, and help them feel and be successful.


I create a supportive, relaxed and engaging learning environment. Students of all ages are challenged, focused and inspired. They love my lessons and enjoy studying.


My students learn through varied activities, creative materials and educational games that I have developed into a unique learning technique.


I help students feel and be successful in their learning. I build a close relationship with parents and provide frequent and detailed progress reports of their child's work.
