Hello, good afternoon!. My name is Analiza Aplando from the Philippines. You can call me Ana for short. I have been teaching English for 10 years to different nationalities, levels, ages and profession. I took up Computer Programming, but due to my passion in teaching I decided to study again, taking up Bachelor of Education Systems major in Alternative Education.
In teaching, I always make sure that my students are comfortable with me so that they can express what they want to say. I also make sure to observe the 70/30 ESL rules of teaching. That means that the teacher should speak at least 30 of the class to give way the 70 percent of speaking to students to get them involve (in the class). To keep the class moving smoothly, I have to be creative in preparing my lessons based on the needs of my students.
When it comes to my interest, I love swimming, mountain hiking, photography and reading. And I always find time to do them to refresh myself from my busy schedule.
Thank you so much.
