Why Hiring Tutors Doesn’t Help Kids Learn To Read And What To Do Instead


What everyone needs to know about kids who can’t learn or read in Lashon Hakodesh

Your son is bright, or used to be. 

He carries a conversation well, is on the ball, and mastered other skills as fast as everyone else. But he’s not moving forward with learning, reading or davening the way a kid like him should. 

But while his classmates are learning chumash, mishnayos, gemara, he’s struggling and unhappy.

He’s complaining of stomach-aches. 

Forgetting how to translate basic words like “vayomer.”

Davening painfully, piecing out every word. 

Spending hours on homework… but the info isn’t sinking in.

Reading slowly, haltingly, repeating parts of words to figure it out. Va-vayeishev.

He gets frustrated when he looks inside. Comes home from school angry almost every day. And you’re in a constant race to keep up with the class. Only you’re losing.

So you hire a tutor who helps your child play catch-up.

But by the time he’s caught up, the class is up to the next thing. And the hire-tutor-catch-up-again game continues.


Fix the problem, not the symptom

Tutors help boys keep up with the class, but they don’t usually address the skills that their students lack.

That’s where Hani Mili changes your son’s story — giving him a lifelong skill via a clear-cut program that has a goal, a plan, and an end.

What’s Hani Mili? Hani Mili utilizes a ground-breaking Phonemic & Language Enrichment Program that gives boys with a learning, reading, or processing difficulty a foolproof way to master core Lashon HaKodesh vocabulary and usage.


By tapping into various learning styles & modalities to turn thousands of core words into sight words. So your son can skip the word decoding stage, and effortlessly read + understand the words on the page.

With a 100% success rate, Hani Mili gets boys who couldn’t learn, read, or daven fluently to read words a different way. 

Now, they can read without stumbling, instantly understand what they’re learning and keep up with the class — on their own.

“Lashon kodesh went from being Chinese to being a second language. In 2 weeks, I already saw a difference. By the time I left, I was learning. I even had chavrusos — was never able to keep one before. My parents didn’t need to pay rebbeim to learn with me anymore. And I have a skill that’s part of me — no matter what I learn.”



Seven? Not Too Young

Yes, Rabbi Kerpel has helped late bloomers learn to read. He got 18+ year-olds to give up their paid chavrusos and learn independently. But like all early intervention programs, Hani Mili works fastest when you start young. Their minds absorb the material more quickly, get trained to read efficiently from the start, and have less catch-up to do.

And once a child has gone through years of frustration and failure, he’s already stuck in a vicious cycle of poor self-esteem, frustration, and worse. 

But will my 7-year-old sit through it?

Yes, Hani Mili is FUN. It incorporates games, contests, rewards and prizes. The team is geshmak. The whole focus is about making the child want to co-operate, so they gain skills faster. 

“My son loved going, it wasn’t dry or heavy. He can now read gemara, and was able to get into a regular high school — something we thought could never happen. I wish there was a Rabbi Kerpel in every yeshiva.”


No need to wait.

  1. My brother Mordechai Shain has been the most successful master in taking the toughest student that’s non-fuctoining and he brings them up to the top in a very short period of time.

    He did it for 20+ years in Monsey, now he’s in Lakewood.
