About Brikena


Bio

I have been teaching English for over 10 years and I have enjoyed every second. There is nothing more satisfying than helping a student - be them a child or adult - have that aha moment; finally get it, finally feel like they are in the flow.
I believe that we only grow and improve when we are getting challenged, therefore, first and foremost, I help my students get comfortable with challenges as necessary obstacles in the educational journey and then I guide them towards the best possible...

I have been teaching English for over 10 years and I have enjoyed every second. There is nothing more satisfying than helping a student - be them a child or adult - have that aha moment; finally get it, finally feel like they are in the flow.
I believe that we only grow and improve when we are getting challenged, therefore, first and foremost, I help my students get comfortable with challenges as necessary obstacles in the educational journey and then I guide them towards the best possible way to systematically fill knowledge gaps and move forward in acquiring new skills.
I have had the pleasure to help elementary, middle and highs school children in reading, math, and science get back on track after falling behind in school and fall in love with learning for the first time in their life and I have helped countless adults and young adults prepare for standardized tests.
I can't wait to help you fall in love with learning. Schedule a session today.
