Hello! My name is Joweena and I’ve been teaching for more than ten years. I am from the Philippines and I speak standard American English. I am currently teaching as an online teacher here at Eigox for almost three years now. Prior to joining Eigox, I’ve worked as a teacher in a private school and as a part time online teacher to Japanese students so, I am happy to say that I have gained so much knowledge and experience teaching Japanese of all ages. This experience help me to grow and improve myself in many different ways. Firstly, my confidence to communicate with different kinds of people is getting better and better. Secondly, I continue to improve my teaching strategies as I learned to be more sensitive to the needs of my students so I kept learning various teaching methods and adjust to the student’s ability. Thirdly, my patience and time management skills continue to improve as I learned to allot adequate time to accomplish my tasks without compromising the quality of lesson I provide. I value punctuality very much and as much as possible I avoid tardiness and cancelling / missing lessons if I can help it. Lastly, my ability to put people at ease is a soft skill that I’m glad to possess. When my students feel comfortable they easily pick up information and encourage to speak more. I think in learning a language, confidence is very important and to accomplish this tutors should be able to establish a friendly environment and at the same time remain professional in dealing with students.
I enjoy teaching because for me it is fulfilling and rewarding. It makes me feel good every time my students learned from me. Learning English is fun because it opens up a new world of opportunities where we can express ourselves globally. What I like about Japan is the people and the country itself. The country is rich with unique culture and traditions. The people are very polite, respectful, hardworking and of course very intelligent. Teaching the Japanese people here at Eigox is a wonderful experience for me as I also continuously learning with my students.
One of the lessons that I can offer are Free talk, 100 Power Topics, 100 Power topics for Business, English Conversation and more. My strengths include correcting pronunciation, grammar and expressions. I want my students to be confident in speaking the English language. I am here to help you learn and improve your English skills in a fun, convenient and comfortable way. I hope to see you all in my class! Thank you!
