Hello! My name is Mariz and I am from the Philippines. I am a Bachelor's degree holder and a TESOL certified. I used to work at home as a representative of a health insurance company based in US. I was assisting doctors, nurses or provider's representatives from the United States with health insurance claims of their patients. I worked for almost 1 and half years as an US insurance representative. So rest assured that I am a well conversant in english. For students who want to learn Tagalog, it is my native language.
Me as a Teacher
I am a Bachelor's degree holder and a TESOL certified. I can teach from beginner to advanced in English or Tagalog. We can work on your reading, writing, conversation skills, pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. I am very friendly and a conversation starter. I want to be a tutor because I want to help people by sharing my knowledge. I know that this is something I will enjoy as a career.
My lessons & teaching style
I can do free talk, conversational practice or structured lesson plan whichever you will be comfortable with. The lesson plan will depend on your level of knowledge or proficiency on the language. I can create google document personalized to you, give you tips or we can use different materials to make the lessons easy for you. We can also track your progress and identify the skills we need to focus.

Mariz is a very good teacher.She also has a wonderful behaviour towards her students which is encouraging and cheerful to them. I learned from the conversation,I need to fake it till I make it to sound confident.(It took 1 year for her) (visualization may help).She is open to new approaches like I suggested to her to have debating in the future lessons and she was excited about that.She also reassured my proficiency in the English language by saying it is quite advanced but need to work on the delivery and confidence.Altogether,she is a great teacher
