– Throughout her career in education, Julissa Bhakta made it her mission to help each and every student in her classroom enjoy learning. From her start as a teacher’s aid, to substitute teaching, to full-time teaching, she recognized each student’s need to learn at their own pace. Unfortunately, with a classroom full of children to teach and a limited school day, she was only able to create individualized study plans in groups, no matter how early she came to work or how late she stayed. A few years into her teaching career, Julissa learned about the Kumon Program after two friends became Instructors. The more she learned about Kumon, the more interested she became. The business aspect tied to individualized study for each student had Julissa sold on her next education endeavor. Just a short time later, she is the owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Bakersfield- Riverlakes.
“Kumon is the only program that allows me to individually plan for each student’s goals – something that I wasn’t able to do as a public school teacher,” said Julissa Bhakta, Instructor of Kumon of Bakersfield-Riverlakes. “I hope to increase academic positivity and confidence through finding the ‘just-right’ learning level for every student that walks into my center.”
