I am a graduate of Bachelor of Elementary Education with master units in teaching and certified in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I was a classroom teacher, and a call center agent and have been teaching ESL for quite some time on different levels.
Me as a Teacher
I love to read informative books and watch American movies and TV series. I love to travel to collect memories and learn new cultures because I believe experience is the best way to learn.
My lessons & teaching style
1. I am more student-centered, and guide students.
2. Relaxed, give them the freedom to express their feelings.
3. Facilitator, give instruction, encourage and push
4. I personalized lesson materials according to student's needs.

6 Cebuano lessons
I really like Yan! She can clearly help me learn Cebuano. Her expertise was obvious from her profile given that she has an education degree and experience teaching in a formal classroom setting.
During the lesson, she had prepared materials but wasn't hesitant to go off the tracks to adjust to my particular needs. I like to call out, define, write down and create my own flashcards for any words that I find interesting and she easily accommodated this need. There is no need to do this for everyone though - this is just my learning style - she has these materials prepared for a later lesson. I am just eager and like to learn in my own way :)
I have only had one lesson but I bought 5 more. I am sure Yan is a great teacher!

1 Filipino (Tagalog) lesson
Yan is very knowledgeable and patient. I enjoyed my first class, and I learned some new basics of Tagalog. It is going to be a tough beginning, but hopefully, things will make sense later. Thank you!
