About The Bracketeers

The Founders and Teachers

Our team comes from very different backgrounds. You can learn more about each of us below. However different, we are united by the same values. We believe that the process of learning deserves to be one of the most exciting experiences in our lives.

In schools both public and private the best intentions of talented people can be bound by the system. Existing outside the systems and having small classrooms gives us freedom to be flexible and experiment. To practice the teaching approach that is rooted in personalization. To look for 20 different ways of explaining the same concept if it’s needed, to guide each student, to build closer, more transparent relationships with students and parents.

The most important thing for us is to spark curiosity in our students. The same curiosity we all had when we were toddlers. We strive to inspire experimentation, to help them internalize the knowledge and create their own map of the world. Unique for each of them. Not dictated by the textbook. Their very own understanding of every piece of knowledge they will gain with us. That means no learning by heart, no training to pass specific tests, but understanding concepts on a deeper level and being comfortable with using them in any setting.

The Three Bracketeers

Rafid Hoda

Teacher & Co-Founder

Some people dream of becoming firemen, others want to be astronauts, presidents, doctors or pirates. Ever since Rafid was a kid he dreamt of becoming a teacher. He is genuinely passionate about sharing knowledge and helping people learn new things. Some of his students have been coming back to his classes for over two years now. He, like no one else, can inspire and support an interest for learning and growth.

Aleksander Malde

Teacher & Co-Founder

Aleks has tried out and worked in so many fields that it would make a pretty long list. A thing that kept coming back is teaching. Even though Aleksander has taught hundreds of kids from kindergarten kids to high school students, he still puts his whole heart into the process. Constantly coming up with new ways to motivate the students and light up this fire within them that would make them seek new knowledge and continue learning even after the class is done.

Anni Hoda

Teacher & Co-Founder

Have you heard about the fear of blank slate? It's likely that you've experienced it yourself. One of the best ways to snap out of it is when someone asks you the right question. A question about something you're trying to do that would get your brain going. Anni's super power is asking the right questions at the right time and putting things into perspective. She's the boss of storytelling and unexpected new ideas.
