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. Currently, I am a member of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). I am also doing an MA in Araling Pilipino (Philippine Studies: Language). I specialize in teaching Filipino to heritage learners and Advanced Filipino (Literature, Humanities, and Cultural Studies).
I did a teaching internship in a youth project in Romania and then studied in Indonesia and Colombia under scholarships by the Indonesian and Colombian governments respectively.
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.
Being in the field of Philippine Studies, the classes go beyond language. You can expect a teacher with expert knowledge on Philippine linguistics, history, culture, and society. Also, as an avid language learner involved in different polyglot communities I can help you navigate the world of language learning.
