  I am from the Philippines, an archipelagic country in Southeast Asia where English and ‎Filipino (Tagalog) are the official languages. I love travelling, watching Sci-fi and documentary films, and reading in my spare time.

I hold a Master of Arts Degree in Teaching English by Laguna State Polytechnic University and a Diploma in Language and Literacy Program by the University of the Philippines, a pioneer national institution in higher education. I am passionate and committed to student development and productive learning environment. 

I have taught online students from Japan, Korea, China, Russia, Ukraine and Brazil for five years now and I am a certified English teacher by TEFL Academy. The TEFL Academy provides qualification and training courses for Teachers of English as a Foreign Language. With my experience, I can easily adapt to all levels, and provide appropriate, specific and effective lessons.  

I also hold a Bachelor of Secondary Education, Major in English, by the Union College and I’m currently working in a public school where I hold the position as Master Teacher II. I have been teaching high school students in Philippines for more than 16 years. I have worked not only as a classroom teacher but I also give technical assistance to new teachers to improve their craft.
