Hello! My name is Marlene, but you can call me Teacher Lene. I hail from the Philippines. In 2003, I earned my degree in education and became a licensed professional teacher. Teaching is something that I am really passionate about. My 16 years of experience inside the classroom and two years of teaching kids online shall help me become an effective and efficient language teacher. Furthermore, as someone who can speak both English and Filipino (Tagalog), establishing a connection with my students is what excites me the most because I know that I can also learn from them. I can't wait to meet my students here on italki!
Me as a Teacher
I am a kind and approachable teacher, and I am eager to share what I know with my students. I taught English for 18 years in my home country, the Philippines. The years that I have devoted in teaching English with my students have allowed me to become more understanding and empathetic towards their learning styles. Moreover, I encourage my students to always give their best, and I remind them that making mistakes while learning is part of the process.
I know that my journey as a teacher on italki will be fruitful and worthwhile.
My lessons & teaching style
I will do my best to make my lessons fun and engaging. I will incorporate the Philippine culture to my lessons so my students will also have a deeper understanding of the customs and traditions of my home country.
In my class, I see to it that there is collaboration between me and my student. I do not consider myself as the main source of knowledge. I allow my students to speak and share what they know because this create a healthy learning environment. Their insights on certain topics are also valuable, so they are free to share what they know.
