Perfect! Ms. Del is an amazing tutor/teacher. I am learning so much from her. I am very grateful to have found her because she is extremely knowledgeable and knows her grammar very well. She explains to me the lessons in a way that I completely understand. Thank you for guiding me to become better in my grammar.
Avery was surprisingly upbeat and interested to do a refresher course in grammar. She wants to improve her communication skills. All her life she has lived in the US, hence the proper diction and pronunciation just like native speakers. She is happy to have the opportunity to re-learn the basics of grammar and attain proficiency. It was fun and engaging to have lessons with Avery.
Miss Del is one my son's teacher when he was in grade school. She is very friendly , smart , accommodating, and she uses different techniques in teaching the kids..She has group of students that she handles well during those times ....I recommend her to Superprof members because she does her work professionally and she's really good in teaching English Grammar and personality development....She'll be an asset to your group.
I have known Teacher Del for more than 20 years. She was my English and Math tutor during my elementary days. She taught me easy to understand methods in Math to help me cope up with my assignments.
She also taught me English (which is not my first language) and it helped me a lot to be confident in day-to-day conversations. I never told her this, but in college, I actually got a perfect grade in Speech 101 and this is all thanks to her.
Teacher Del is not only a great teacher, but she also builds lasting relationships with her students and helps them be the best version of themselves.
I am absolutely recommending her!
It's good to know that Ms. Del started again with what she loves the most-- teaching.
She was my tutor when I was a kid, and I can say that I've excelled in my English and Speech Classes-- all because of her.
She provides a tailored-fit type of teaching, because it is definitely not a "one size fits all" kind of thing. She familiarize herself with the student first (know her learning style, hobbies, etc.) to be able to know what would possibly work for her.
She's an excellent teacher. She's passionate towards work, and she's friendly to her students. My family adores her ️
Ma'am Dels was my private tutor English language for almost 5 months,
I needed to improve my English skills
since my first languag is Arabic my English was not that strong so I needed to improve it to be qualified for the entrance exams of the college.
I highly recommend Teacher Delia, she have a plenty of teaching skills, she creates ways to make things easier for the students to understand.
for me after all the English lessons I took with maam Delia i felt that very big difference in my English skills It helped me to pass the entrance exams and in my daily life here in the philippines since English is the seconed language here
finally i want to say
maam Delia was not only a teacher for me but also a mather
Thank you so much Maam Dels
much Love po
Ms Del is one of the best teachers that I ever had. Aside from the english classes that I attended ever since I was a kid (probably I started when I was 10 years old) she had taught me so many great things.
Her teaching style can help to develop someone's confidence, not only in speaking and writing in English spontaneously, but someone's personality as a whole. Also, I learned to interact with people, be friends with people in my nicest way. Lastly, I learned to be humble. For example, if I see or hear people speaks hardly in English, I do not judge them yet I help them to build their thoughts.
With that, I truly say that having Ms Del as my "teacher and my aunt in one" is such a great honor. I really feel blessed that she had the time to teach me.
Hello everyone, if you are looking for a teacher who teaches Tagalog or even the English language, I have a friend of mine who is willing to help you to learn, I would definitely recommend you to her, she is very good at teaching, I actually one of her learner and also, my son before I go to the states and I learned a lot from her, I really admired her a bunch too.
Ms. Del would make a great teacher because she has this one-of-a-kind teaching style that everybody loves. She makes all lessons, no matter how difficult it is, easy to understand. She is also very patient to her students. I've been her students since I was in 3rd grade (I am now in 2nd year college) and for the past years, and with all the teachers I have met in my formal education, Ms. Del's teaching style is still the best for me. When Ms. Del is your teacher, rest assured that you will learn in no time.
Thank you for being inspiring teacher, tutor for me and to my friends,
I Ms. Del Mandap because of....
Love for kids, love for subject willing to help, enthusiasm, work ethic, humility thats it
