Delia's response

Grace lives up to her name because she is a blessing in my teaching career that spans thirty years. She is every student put together: she possesses that childlike characteristic of always taking delight in learning new lessons. She has the passion and desire to understand and master every concept taught to her. It is quite a rewarding experience to see the joy in her eyes as she spoke to me about exceeding expectations. She achieved a much higher score than what was required when she took the duolingo test online.

Grace gives that sense of accomplishment to me as a teacher who simply wants to make a positive difference in her learning experience. Truly, she is the achiever, and the epitome of learning with enthusiasm. Thank you, Grace!

Perfect! I was so glad that Ms. Del accepted my request for English lessons. She organized a trial lesson for me in an efficient way. Ms. Del is a friendly, well-prepared and professional teacher who is able to point out my mistakes accurately and clearly during our first tutorial session. She gave me good guidance to pronounce English words as well as high patience to improve my grammatical mistakes. I really appreciate that she is very good at singing. I felt very relaxed during the whole learning process.

Delia's response

V or Vicky is a young professional who has passion for advance learning. She possesses the fundamental skills to be successful in enhancing her English communication skills. I am positive that she will achieve her goal in due time and gain confidence in her abilities. I am here to help. Good luck, Vicky!

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 ️

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.

Delia's interview

QUESTION 01 | 10
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Delia — I have always wanted to be a teacher since I was a child. As I was growing up, I developed several talents and other interests that could decide what I want to do. One of them is helping my friends and neighbors with their homework and school project. It was in the year 1985, when I turned 20 years old that I realized I want to be a professional teacher. I graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Psychology and became a preschool teacher the following year.
QUESTION 02 | 10
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Delia — I teach academic English where I thoroughly explain the lesson, give more practical examples and test my student`s comprehension through oral and written exercises. I also teach English as a Second Language where I discuss the different parts of speech, subject-verb agreement, give drills in pronunciation and vocabulary enrichment. I use true-to-life situations as topics of lessons so the student can relate to and understand the lesson better. When I teach Tagalog as a Second Language, I always take into consideration the main purpose of my student in learning the language so I can customize the lesson according to his learning need. Since I am exposed to both Filipino and North American cultures, I am able to use my life experiences as basis of topics for discussion, and ice breaker for conversation. I like to discuss topics relevant to my student like his interests, current events, but I tend to talk less about personal matters so we set some boundary.
QUESTION 03 | 10
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Delia — I have several teachers I look up to, mostly those who taught English and Filipino. I remember their teaching strategies which paved the way for me to develop my own methodology.
QUESTION 04 | 10
4) What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Delia — To be a good tutor, apart from the ability to teach, one must have the desire to make a positive difference in the learning experience of the students.
QUESTION 05 | 10
5) Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Delia — It was the year 2002, I was teaching the multiplication table to three Korean sisters who had a three-year-old brother. I thought it would be fun to use familiar tunes of nursery songs and rhymes to learn multiplication, so we sang tables 1 to 10 using different tunes. When the three girls started singing the table of 3 to the tune of `Twinkle Twinkle Little Star``, their 3-year-old-brother suddenly butted in and answered ``24`` when we were singing < 3 x 8 = ... > We all looked at him in surprise and he was smiling at us. We clapped our hands for him. We knew that he learned the answer because he repeatedly heard us singing the multiplication tables on a daily basis for several weeks. It was LEARNING BY REPETITION.
QUESTION 06 | 10
6) What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Delia — Some students have pre-conceived biases about the subject, if not about themselves. For instance, proper pronunciation can be such a challenge to some. It could be because where they come from, such is the way everybody else MISpronounces the word, it could also be regional defect, or one's low self-esteem. It could be challenging to unlearn such old habits, but patience is a virtue.
QUESTION 07 | 10
7) Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Delia — Like I mentioned earlier, teaching was my childhood dream. I have always wanted to be a teacher. I also like singing so I use singing in teaching. I compose songs and carry out tunes that help me teach the concepts to my students. My other passion is cooking, so I use my specialty dishes as rewards to students who do a good job. They like the food I cook or bake!
QUESTION 08 | 10
8) What makes you a Superprof ?
Delia — What makes me a SuperProf is my ability to see through the student's ability, his attitude and behaviour and how I can help to achieve the learning goal.
QUESTION 09 | 10
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Delia — I speak both English and Tagalog fluently because of my origins, life experiences and some previous school teachers inspired me to learn.
QUESTION 10 | 10
What is the technological evolution that has marked you most and what will be, in your eyes, a turning point in this field?
Delia — I realize that as time goes by, students from all walks of life has varying learning needs, and I aim to serve them and learn with them.
