What They Are Saying
“When I began to learn Biblical Hebrew I was a bit nervous and truthfully, not sure I could learn it. The books overall seemed overwhelming but I soon found that my coach took me step by step on a journey of fulfilling my dream to learn Biblical Hebrew. The journey is not an over night stop but an extended journey of learning and becoming confident in what was learned. I am very pleased to have a coach that meets me where I am in my learning. He is patient and consistent in his teaching. I could not have asked for a better coach! He is always encouraging me and reassuring me that I will learn the language. He was right, I am learning and I actually feel a level of self confidence in this accomplishment. I would recommend my coach, Anthony, to anyone who is willing to put in the time to learn. They will find as did I, he will make it as smooth as possible and teach on the individual level of each person’s ability. And, as an added benefit, he will throw in a bit of humor to ease any tensions.”
“Over the years, I have studied Greek and Latin, both independently and through a variety of tutors. I believe I have learned much about what makes a tutor good and what doesn’t. In the last year, I started learning Hebrew and spent several months evaluating various tutors and, even, arranging lessons with several. None provided the right mix of depth of knowledge, enthusiasm for the subject, patience, experience tutoring remotely, and the ability to use a variety of distance learning tools. Then, I found Anthony quite by accident. I could tell from the very first session that he was exactly the right person for me. Learning a new language, particularly an ancient language is a challenge and long term investment in time. Finding the right tutor to help you through the process is critical. With Anthony, I have the found exactly the right person to guide me through the process. I would highly recommend him to others who are looking for an outstanding coach.”
"In addition to a substantial knowledge of the subject (I have not been able to ask a question he can’t answer), Anthony identifies with his students, spending extensive time with each individually and regularly updating his resources to better address the problems he sees they face. In addition, he’s very kind and gracious to each student, identifying problems without ever giving the appearance of blame or a critical spirit. If he stays with a small number of students, his personalized and positive approach is excellent."
“I admire Anthony’s passion to serve the Lord. He always points out that while it’s good for us to be doing these things in language, culture, context, and apologetics, all we have to rely on at the end of the day is the blood of Jesus. I also admire Anthony’s willingness to take on as many students as possible despite an intensely busy schedule with work and with his family. Anthony also displays a more than competent understanding of the Hebrew language as well as culture and context of the Hebrew Bible. He is also good at explaining the concepts related to those things in an understandable way. I can also have fun with Anthony as we go along. Overall, I am thankful to have a tutor like Anthony.”
[Upon John completing the Biblical Hebrew coaching course, he took his Hebrew placement exam at Westminster and did really well being placed in Hebrew III in his first semester of 2016.]
“Anthony is just as passionate for studying the Hebrew language as he is teaching it that he genuinely and patiently seeks the growth of his students, making himself available beyond the lessons if need be, despite his hectic schedule. He takes the necessary time to assure the student’s confidence before proceeding to the next chapter/lesson, never rushing. His enthusiasm and drive for Hebrew stems from his love of the Scriptures, which he incorporates into the lessons involving a perfect step by step visual breakdown and application of Hebrew grammar through an examination, parsing, and translation of various text. Just as the proverb states “Iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens another” so it is true with this brother. His dedication, passion, and energy rubs off on you, pushing you always to strive and do a little more. Best of all, Anthony is a friend before he’s a tutor. He’s equally sincere and interested to see his students grow in peace in all areas of their lives and welcomes dialogue of all kinds. Always offering his heartfelt perspective and advice for such.”
"Anthony is very knowledgeable and always available to answer questions I may have regarding the course material. He was also very patient in teaching me new material throughout the course. Overall, I am not really sure there are any areas I can think of where Anthony needs to improve with regards to the tutorship. He is very upfront about what he offers, and he delivers with regard to what he promises. If I could offer a suggestion that would have helped me a little more, that would be that I would like a little more review over past lessons and perhaps even some testing or pop quiz type sessions. Just so that I could better gauge my own development. I am very satisfied with the first year Greek course and have, and will continue to recommend Anthony to friends and others that are interested in learning a biblical language."
“Anthony has several years of study behind him in Biblical Hebrew, and has acquired his knowledge from different teaching sources. I believe this makes him well able to teach others with a more diverse view in the basics of Biblical Hebrew. He seems to have applied his study of Biblical Hebrew to Christian apologetics. His ability to read Biblical Hebrew allows him to dispute the false claims made against the foundational Christian beliefs regarding the Old Testament Scriptures. This ability is poured out into his students which makes studying the basics of the Biblical Hebrew language from him twofold in benefits. He is extremely patient with his students being understanding of different circumstances that each student encounters in his/her life. He has the ability to encourage those of us who have felt from the very beginning that this course might be an impossible task to complete. He goes out of his way to make sure each student grasps the foundations of each chapter before moving on to the next. He is more concerned with us actually learning the material; rather than just trying to rush through for time’s sake. He really has a heart to see others learn the basics of the Biblical languages, and has bent over backwards in the giving of his time both one on one; as well as in his personal time preparing lessons for his students!”
“Anthony is such a knowledgeable guy, but most of all he’s very passionate. He loves what he does and he does it with the intuition from the love of the language and The Scriptures. He pays attention to the smallest details and always strives toward perfection. His love for what he does fires up students to learn faster and in a more effective way.”
