About Brian


For the last year and a half, I have instructed the Readak advanced learning skills course in the United States, Australia and the Caribbean.

The Readak course focuses on study skills and reading skills including lessons on memory skills, Cornell Notes, Test-taking and Phrase-reading. I began each course by assessing each student's learning challenges and tailored my lessons accordingly. During each class, I helped the students
apply the learning techniques to a variety of subjects. In this way, I accumulated a great deal of experience in many subject matters. I have consulted with hundreds of parents on how they can help reinforce their children's skills and have held faculty presentations at a dozen private schools to educate
the faculty on the neuroscience behind teaching. Furthermore, I have submitted contributions to Readak's new textbook with respect to study skills and improving reading speed and comprehension.

My teaching philosophy is based on teaching students how to learn efficiently in order to apply their skill set effectively. I specialize in reading skills and have improved the reading speed and comprehension of students who have dyslexia and ADD, as well as successful students aiming to advance
in their studies. In the Readak course, I administered timed-readings to measure students words per minute and gave them short comprehension quizzes.
Nearly all of my students improved their reading speed. I have many positive performance reviews and references and was awarded teacher of the month while instructing the Readak course. I am very passionate about teaching and incentivize students to do better by showing them them that they have the power to succeed one lesson at a time.
