I graduated from Polytechnic University of the Philippines with Bachelor's Degree in Accountancy. I also took my Masters units in the same university majored in Business Administration specialized in Human Resources. I used to work in the Philippines as an HR Manager of an IT company. Currently, I'm residing in New Zealand enjoying its beauty and people. My love for travelling, learning other cultures, meeting new people makes me a versatile person. My excellent communication skill, experience, determination, and commitment are my edges as a teacher.
I've been teaching ESL online for adults and kids alike since 2006. I've been handling different levels of junior and adult students from lower beginners up to advanced levels. I also managed various courses such as TOEIC, TOEFL, OPIC, and IELTS for adults, and group classes for junior students. I also became the company's Training Manager guiding tutors to improve their teaching strategies and communication skills. Learning English is challenging, but I always believe it should always be fun and exciting. As a teacher, I always encounter different kinds of learners - enthusiastic, focused, determined, but others are sometimes tired, demotivated, distracted. Yet, I regard each state for me to conform to the teaching strategies. In my classes, I build rapport, I can be a teacher and a friend at the same time. Teaching is not just a job, but a passion and love!
