Seven years experience in the language industry. I received training as a teacher of Filipino as a Foreign Language from Sentro Rizal, the official government institution promoting Filipino culture globally. I am also doing an MA in Araling Pilipino (Philippine Studies: Language). I have lived in Romania, Indonesia and Colombia teaching and studying languages.
For my day job, I work as a bilingual learning specialist for a company that provides language and intercultural training to corporations.
Having grown up in the province of Laguna, I am absolutely in love with the Tagalog language. It connects me to my deepest roots and it is a home I always carry.
I have teaching experience in colleges and language schools, as well as privately to corporate clients, diplomats, travelers, and entrepreneurs.
You can expect a teacher with expert knowledge on Filipino language, culture and society. Also, as a successful language learner and learning coach I can help you set achievable goals, formulate an effective learning strategy, and build healthy habits to help you reach fluency.
