Hello everyone My name is JOWEENA and I am from the PHILIPPINES I speak standard American English. I have been an online English teacher for 5 years now and EIGOX has been my home for the past 5 years. I have been teaching English online to Chinese, Koreans, and mostly Japanese students of all ages from beginner, intermediate to advanced levels.
I gaduated with a Bachelor's degree in Education. I am a licensed professional teacher and a TEFL certificate holder . TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
In my spare time I enjoy reading my favorite books, listening to music and watching movies/Korean dramas on Netflix. I also like outdoor activities such as walking or hiking, or going to the beach. The beaches in my area are breathtaking with aquablue ocean to powdery white and yellow sands.
I am happy to say that I have gained so much knowledge and experience teaching Japanese people. 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 keep learning various teaching methods to suit and adjust to the learner's abilities.
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/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 and welcomed 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. In my class, I make sure that we will have a fun, engaging and an interactive lesson that will make your learning experience with me fun and meaningful. LEARNING a language shouldn't be boring it should be FUN because LEARNING is BEST when it is FUN
I enjoy teaching because for me it is fulfilling and rewarding. It makes me feel good everytime you 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 polite, respectful, hardworking, very professional and intelligent. They are also very serious in studying the language. Teaching and conversing with Japanese people here in Eigox is a wonderful experience for me as I also continuously learn with my students.
