Hi! My name is Lourena. I graduated with a degree in Law and in Business Management.
I am a mother of two girls and I know that it takes patience and a passion for teaching to effectively motivate children and adults alike to listen and follow.
In my spare time, I like to read or paint. But never ask me to cook, I am useless in the kitchen except for washing the dishes. That, I can do with finesse.
I am currently trying my hand at carpentry, I already feel sorry for my husband, he does all the heavy lifting of the wood. And my next adventure is to try my hand at sewing.
I have been teaching English as a Second Language for about 10 months. My students have been Korean and Japanese nationals with ages ranging from 8 years old to 60 years old. Their levels were either, Beginners, Intermediate or Advanced. I taught them either Basic English lessons, Conversational English, Assist Lessons, or Business English.
I have also taught as an Art Teacher at the University of the Philippines - Eastern Visayas and at Bright Sparks Preparatory School. The age range of the students were from 3 years old to 14 years old. This was in a classroom with about 10-15 students.
I have worked as an Administrative Assistant to the City Vice Mayor of our town, as a Customer Service Team Leader at an international BPO company, and as a Customer Service Representative.
I speak with an acquired neutral native accent. And I am well versed in the English language and grammar.
