A native Tagalog speaker with decades of teaching experience
italki teacher since Nov 1, 2022
Hi. I’m Saylani, a community tutor for Tagalog here in Italki. I’ve decided to teach my native language through Italki to help others who wish to learn Tagalog and be conversant in it. I use real-life scenarios in my lessons for the language to be of practical use.
Me as a Teacher
My background is actually teaching English since 1992. A degree in education, a TESOL certificate, and taking and passing the Board for Professional Teachers prove that teaching is both my passion and profession. From teaching in the physical classroom, training others, and tutoring in person at some Korean homes, I shifted to teaching online in 2014. In all my teaching years, I've helped students improve grammar, practice conversation, prepare for interviews, use English for business, and prepare for exams like IELTS, SAT, TOEFL, TOEIC, and CELPIP. As always, it gives me joy to help students reach their goals in learning English. Now, I'd be happy to assist others in learning Tagalog.
My lessons & teaching style
I expect my students to use the language in communicating with Filipinos while traveling or developing relationships with Filipinos and their families, personal or business.
Hence, my lessons will be interactive and based on real-life scenarios using several teaching materials possible. They will consist of grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, games, role-play, dictation, reading comprehension, and discussions based on the student's needs and interests.
I make my own materials on Powerpoint, which I send the students a PDF copy of after every lesson with notes taken in class. I also give links as resources for pre-class reading and after-class review.
