What is the difference between Teaching and Coaching?

This Private Hebrew/Aramaic Coaching Program is about COACHING, rather than just TEACHING. What is the difference?

Teaching is generally curriculum based. It is run by a teacher who takes students through a designated course. It is, by definition, a one-size-fits-all approach. For some students, the pace will be too slow, and they will get bored and stop. For other students, the pace will be too fast and they will get left behind. Hopefully YOU will fall somewhere in the middle!

By contrast, coaching is tailored, highly customized, and designed for YOUR individual needs. It goes at YOUR pace. It is for YOU, and YOU ONLY. It covers what YOU want, and what YOU need. We will change pace. We will change direction if you want to. Sometimes we will go fast, if you are happy with that. Sometimes we will go slow and cover difficult subjects slowly. We will move on when YOU are ready. But more importantly, we will chart a route through an immense amount of possible knowledge, to find the path that fits you the best. Think of it as safely being led through a maze of possibilities, by someone who knows the maze inside out.

Think of Teaching as being like taking a tour in a boat round the harbor and a mile out to sea, then back, along with all the other tourists. Think of Coaching as being like chartering a sailing boat and a crew, and sailing out to an island or a destination of your choice, having fun, going to another island or city of your choice, staying for a while if you want, or setting sail for another destination – and the journey can last as long or as short as you wish. You can go anywhere, see anything, go at your pace, and you are in full control.

Rodger HutchisonHi’ First of all... I do not want to receive any phone calls until a clear introduction is established and an acquaintance of my conditions and needs are understood. I am a stroke survivor from 2013. I’ve had a craniotomy in Acadia plasty. I have had various physical therapy. As a result of the first stroke in the secondary infection 2/3 of my right cerebellum is dead. However, since my stroke I have a strong desire to Draw closer to God. In fact, I promised him I would do so when I realized he had favored me to live. I have been studying scriptures and the more that I study the more I desire to know the Arabic and Hebrew language. I also have some beginning background in Greek. It would you like me so much to know these three languages well enough to read the Bible in the original languages through and through. I realize that my brain makes things structured a certain way. I have actually always liked Learning step by step. I’ve memorized the Hebrew continents and not yet the vowel sounds and symbols. Nevertheless I desire to do so as I am not ready for contemporary Hebrew I only want to learn biblical Hebrew in its original form, and I want to learn the nikkodot vowel system really well; before I get into learning much vocabulary. My brain is in good shap over all, However I learn best when I hear what I am reading as I follow along. So, Coaching is attractive to me. My budget is limited as I am on restricted ability to earn income due to Social Security Disability allowances and regulations. My wife is also disabled. I have about a half semester experience in Greek. I have; William D. MOUNCE Basics of Biblical Greek textbook and workbook and the box of Greek flash cards. Miles and PRATICO Basics of Biblical Hebrew textbook Biblical Hebrew Step by Step Monsoor Volume 1& 2 paperback textbooks I have other resources in ebook format I even have some William D. Barrick Hebrew video lessons saved to my email. Nevertheless, I have a feeling it would be good and possibly more efficient to learn Aramaic first before I turn to get deeper into Hebrew. I am only working 2 days a week so, I am trying to arrange a system of dedicated study disrupted only by my wife’s distractions, care of our infant grandchildren, and Dr. and therapy appointments for my ongoing recovery, My conditions Left hemiperis,(left-sided weakness) Left he is posit. (left eye vision field cut). mostly left peripheral loss. So, my left sided weaknesses make it difficult to coordinate the handling and reading books. Nonetheless. my right sided strengths allow me to use my iPhone and iPad preferentially. It will also allow me to adapt well to right to left reading as opposed to left to right. My left eye vision cut causes me to not see the first word in English sentences. Well, that is enough of me at this point! I need to know your perspectives in response to these conditions as it relates to learning Aramaic and what kind of fees I need to consider. Please feel free to text me a notice that you have answered this message or sent me an email so I will not miss a response.

Usman SheikhHi, I wish to learn Syriac, Serto, and wanted to know if you can offer this and, if so, how much do you charge for this. I know the letters, have practiced reading/writing. I have also memorised the detached pronouns, the demonstrative and interrogative pronouns, along with memorising the conjugation of the perfect tense verbs, as well as the imperfect, and the attached pronouns. I wish to proceed beyond this and reach a level where o can read and translate texts into English. Please inform me if you can help me with this. I would like to request 2 hours per week and need to reach at least an intermediate level. Regards Usman

Lindsey BarrettI grew up in a Christian household, went to Christian HS, and have gone to church most of my life. So throughout my life I've understood and have tried to put into practice what Christ taught us to do, but I always fell short. My pride/ego has been the thorn/plank in my eyes for 33 years as I tried because I knew it was right but kept failing, because I was still trying to do it myself and not relying on God. I got to a really low point in my life thinking nothing was worth it, and it was actually feedback about how I was conducting myself at work that thankfully opened my heart and I truly believe that God has gifted me with the Holy Spirit! I'm so humbled because I know even though I've heard the lessons before, it's only now that I truly understand His message, His purpose, why we were created, and what we are meant for. I've recognized that Aramaic is an important aspect of Jesus' teaching and I want to continue my study/understanding of His Word. I will warn you, that I have always been really terrible at learning languages.... I've tried to learn French, Latin, some German, Spanish, Mandarin, and unfortunately in the past it's never stuck. I have never been able to catch on with another language, but I know deeply that I need to learn a way to be successful so that I can read the Word in His eyes. Eventually, I do also want to learn Hebrew/Biblical Greek, but I feel like Aramaic is definitely where I need to start. I'm hoping to talk with you to figure out what my next steps should be as I'm definitely interested in the coaching program, but am not sure what it will look like for me and seek your guidance! Thank you for offering this to others :)
TheoI would like to thoroughly learn/read Hebrew and Aramaic. How long is a session? What would I need to do to thoroughly read and understand Hebrew and Aramaic?
Stephanie SeidelHello, I have just recently discovered your website as part of a new chapter in my life devoted to The Aramaic Jesus. I am working on several projects to this end. We share many of the same goals and I really enjoyed the e-book, Jesus Spoke Aramaic. I need targeted Aramaic and Hebrew language training. My goal is to write about Jesus' Aramaic roots, healing ministry and create worship music. I would also be interested in learning biblical Hebrew, particularly of the Torah, relevant to Jesus' teachings and cosmology. I would like to learn more about the private coaching program. I look forward to hearing more! Best, Ctersha

Cynthia HonnayakarI am interested in Aramaic language learning
DianaI have a desire to learn Aramaic but I'm not sure if I'm skilled enough.
TracyDear Mr. MacLeod~ My name is Tracy and I have been wanting to learn Aramaic for a few months now. First, I wanted to learn Hebrew, especially since my second fave singer of all time is Ofra Haza. I heard the way she sings in Hebrew and I LONGED to speak it and sing in it like she did! :) Beautiful person and singer, I'm sorry I became a fan only a year after she passed. I watched a documentary on Aramaic on youtube "Is the language of Jesus becoming endangered?" and I fell in LOVE with the way Aramaic is spoken in Maaloula. So, I found on Memrise a lesson that teaches Maaloula Aramaic. I would one day like to be able to go from this Aramaic to Galilaic Aramaic ( the ACTUAL) dialect Jesus spoke AND I believe it's Steve Caruso that has the Website of Galilean Aramaic (AramaicNT.org). He recommends having an "aramaic" course background BEFORE getting into Galilean Aramaic as it's more difficult. So, I've had my mind set on learning the Assyrian Aramaic of Maaloula, then start to get into Galilaic Aramaic ( I bought his book in it "the Three Little Pigs" from Amazon as a motivator) . Then, I still want to learn Hebrew I would like to learn Syriac ( Syriac Aramaic) as well. I would love to one day visit Maaloula and speak in their Aramaic language! I'd love to visit Israel as well. I know Galilean Aramaic is more in the Palestinian region but just to learn the ACTUAL language of Jesus is motivating. :) I'm VERY much into Ancient Languages and I'm looking for Teachers for Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Babylonian.The latter came before Aramaic. I LOVE all these languages and hope to one day sing in them as I'm going to be starting up singing lessons again soon, perhaps the beginning of next year. Steve Caruso also has 2 other books coming out "Elementary Galilean Aramaic" with Exercises in reading and Comprehension and "The Galilean Aramaic Lord's Prayer" and the fate of the language of Christ. I'm looking forward to those. :) I'm on a fixed income so, I look on Memrise or other sites for classes that aren't out of my league to pay for. I just thought I would ask to see what your thoughts were on all this. Would you suggest Study Programs to start? I want to thank you for offering your services to people that REALLY want to learn Aramaic and Hebrew! there are so few teachers. Thanks so much for taking the time to read all of this. I just wanted to give you an overview of where I'd like to go with these languages. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks again! :) Tracy
Patrick KoenigHi I look forward to speaking with you on how your coaching will teach me to speak Aramaic
JasonI am seeking to learn how to speak the language Jesus speaks to be able to talk to him in his language.
