Teaching Experience: I am an International Well Rounded Coach!
August 2016 IELTS ACADEMIC RESULTS: L/9 R/9 W/9 S/9
Your coach who takes the IELTS examination yearly to give you the fresh tips and questions!
Though I am a full blooded Filipina (that I am very proud of (",), I grew up visiting Carson, California frequently during my childhood years. It was my second home at that time. Thus, I consider myself as a Native English Speaker. I am well-traveled (Thanks to my mom ^^) I learned English as my first language. In fact, I was chosen to be the demonstration teacher in Hanyang University in Seoul because of my exceptional English, teaching strategies and classroom management skills. However, my teaching experience was never restricted in teaching Asians. I have been a good coach for Arabians, Indians, Brazilians, Spanish, Italians and a lot more.
In fact, you can often see me from different IELTS blog were my students give a feedback about my classes. From this, I get to earn a lot of opportunities to meet many people across the globe.
Since 2007, I have been teaching IELTS, I was able to establish fundamental strategies to make IELTS Speaking and Writing easier for students. I slice every single criterion and inculcate the proper way of handling themselves even with pressure. I value time and I want a solid content during our classes. I make sure that answers are thoughts of my students for them to easily remember and just suggest or brainstorm with them to gather more information from their own experiences.
I can also teach OET, ESL, PTE, TOEFL, TOEIC ,OPIC and writing students.
5.0 to 7.5 in 2 weeks (120 minutes in 14 days).
4.5 to 6.0 in a month (60 minutes, 7 days a week)
5.5 to 7.0 in a month (60 minutes, 7 days a week)
6.0 to 7.0 in 2 weeks (60 minutes, 7 days a week)
Nursing A (speaking and writing), 60 minutes, 7 days a week ( 1 1/2 months)
Medicine B (speaking and writing) 60 minutes, 7 days a week ( 4 months)
Nursing B (speaking and writing, 60 minutes, 5 days a week (1 month)

Of course, this will depend on how much hard work, perseverance and patience you have to rejuvenate yourself in a better IELTS/OET study practice. If not, then, this would not be possible for you.

Interests: I am a well rounded person. I love EVERYTHING ABOUT CHILDREN, reading, outdoor activities, baking, handicrafts, cooking and music. I actually do enjoy many things about Science (Chemistry and Astronomy are my favorites!). I love to sing and compose songs during my free time.

Education: IELTS 9.0 Certified (Academic Module based on my August 2016 Exam)
IELTS 8.5 Certified ( General Module based on my December 2015 Exam)
In fact, I take both modules every year. This is to enhance my knowledge about the examination. I want to be fully equipped and updated with any questions and possible scenarios in the IELTS examination. This way, I can easily coach my students about it.
