About the Instructor
My past employment experiences, my educational background, and personal language learner experiences have provided me with a well-balanced set of skills and experiences that have prepared me for this position.
I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Cebu Technological University. In addition to my educational background, I have 5 years of teaching experience working in Thailand with kindergarten, primary, high school and adults. My work experience with kindergarten, primary and adults encompassed developing, tailoring and implementing ESL curriculum with an emphasis on employment for students of all English levels from preliterate-beginner to students proficient in English. These experiences provide me with insight into the various teaching and learning styles and the expectations and needs of students from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Over the past years, I have gained experience teaching English from academic English to conversational and business English. My goal as a teacher is to meet each and every student’s need. I always keep an eye on my students’ anxieties and knowledge gaps in order to make sure they achieve their goals and leave the classroom satisfied and inspired to use English confidently in real-life situations. I have been using the direct approach (only English) in my classroom and find it very rewarding for the learners, especially for students’ communicative fluency. I enjoy working with young learners as well as teenagers and adults.
