Our Team

Reena Joglekar, the founder of Enrich Learning LLC, has more than a decade of experience in one-on-one teaching and academic consultation. Reena holds a Master’s degree in Education from College of Saint Elizabeth, New Jersey. She also holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Economics from University of Mumbai, India.

Reena hails from a family of teachers and hence, teaching comes naturally to her. Reena started her career as an early childhood teacher where she was able to observe child psychology. Later during her experience as a one-on-one tutor, she realized how important a student-teacher relationship is in shaping a student’s future. She also published a research paper while at College of Saint Elizabeth focused on why student-teacher relationship is important for effective learning. She strongly believes “No significant learning can occur without a significant relationship.”

Throughout her experience, Reena built a strong rapport with her students and their parents. Often she would come home elated with the joy she saw on a student’s face when they scored well on tests or when they learned a new concept. This joy and the positive encouragement she received from many parents built the confidence to start her own learning center; Enrich Learning!

Sindhu Jacob, a patron of Enrich Learning LLC has decades of experience in education, finance, and computer science. Sindhu graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, along with a minor in Education from the City University of NY- City College. She completed her Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance and Taxation from Seton Hall University, New Jersey. Sindhu is a master of all trades; she holds multiple licenses in different fields of study. Her expertise and dedication to sharing her experiences with others will serve as a great career resource for Enrich students.

As a mother of three young and vibrant daughters, Sindhu understands firsthand the stress that students and parents face every day about school. Being both a parent and an educator, Sindhu can provide valuable insight that will be helpful to aid students in achieving their goals. Enrich Learning has been Sindhu’s vision for years. As the Greek writer Nikos Kazantzakis once said, “true teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.” Sindhu will serve as a resource counselor at Enrich; her guidance and tenacity to work harder each day will serve as a great resource in pushing students to try their best and achieve their maximum potential.

Barbara O’Toole-Kivlon, the Education Director of Enrich Learning LLC. received her B.S. in Elementary Education, Magna Cum Laude, from Seton Hall University in 1979. Barbara began teaching in the West Orange School District as an elementary teacher. She enjoyed a most successful teaching career, including a year teaching teachers about effective classroom instruction. Barbara received the Governor’s Teacher of the Year Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1988. Barbara holds a Master’s Degree in Administration and Supervision from Seton Hall University and, consequently, she was interviewed and hired to the Principal of West Orange’s Redwood Elementary School in 2002. Truly this opportunity to be the principal of such a fine school with an outstanding faculty, and wonderful students and parents for thirteen years, was most rewarding. The school enjoyed, and still does, a fine reputation for academic excellence and high achievement ratings. Upon retirement in June 2015, Barbara shared how fortunate and blessed she was to have spent her entire professional career in West Orange, New Jersey. Currently, Barbara is an Adjunct Professor at Caldwell University for the Department of Education.

Barbara believes that all students can learn. Students learn at different rates and in different ways. Students have different talents. Educators must determine the best practices and instructional strategies to support each student’s learning style. When students succeed and do well in school they develop the confidence in themselves to work conscientiously and to work to their potential. As John Dewey believed,” Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” Students need to be taught so the learning is retained, connected and enjoyed. Students must be able to make real-life connections to their learning, to apply the learning to new situations and to think using higher levels of thinking.

As a member of the Enrich Learning team, Barbara looks forward to students developing their talents through enrichment opportunities and growing academically in varied subject areas. Becoming the best student is a journey that never ends. Even after retiring from a most successful education career, Barbara continues her learning journey working with her new students and new families at Enrich Learning.

Susan Hyon,Yoga and Theater Instructor at Enrich Learning, received a BA in Economics from Smith College, and an MFA in Theater from Columbia University. As a Fulbright ETA scholar in South Korea, she taught English to large classrooms of high-school aged boys. Susan holds a Yoga Alliance 200-hr certification and has completed four, 10-day silent meditation courses as taught by S.N. Goenka. Susan aims to practice or serve one 10-day course annually, and find her way to Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM) in Chennai, India, where the heart of yoga is so preciously taught.

Coursework is comprehensive: Anatomy and Physiognomy, Ayurveda, Yoga Philosophy, Classical Asana Technique (Application and Therapy), Principles and Practice of Pranayama, Theory and Practice of Meditation, Mantras and Chanting, and Samskritam. As a practitioner, the path for living a happy existence continues to reveal itself, through all of life’s vicissitudes. Susan’s greatest joy is to share the wealth of teachings that have been passed down to her, to all students of life!

Susan teaches yoga privately in one on one sessions and in small groups at offices, universities, theater festivals and performance venues. She has given talks and lessons at NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Columbia University in NYC, the William Inge Center in Independence, Kansas, and as far as the Kyrgyz Republic for Yara Arts, in addition to many other locales and settings. She is thrilled at the prospect of getting to know each and every student and parent or guardian who comes in contact with Enrich Learning.
