About

Rosario delivers an exceptional lesson experience and ranks in the top 15% of our teachers nationwide.
Teaches students:
and Ages 7 to 65

Teaching since:
November 1995

Teaching is one of the things I do best. I was in the academe for 17 years teaching college and graduate school students. Moreover, I had the opportunity to teach English and Japanese when I was in Japan.

Presently, I have several students learning to speak Tagalog. My courses are personalized depending on the learning ability and pace of a student. I inspire and motivate my students to be at their best especially in expressing themselves in Tagalog. I am very dependable, hard working and very enthusiastic.

I believe that no matter how difficult a language is, it takes practice, patience and perseverance. And do not forget, cooperation. So let's have a wonderful experience exploring Tagalog words..

Maraming salamat po at mabuhay!

I can understand some Tagalog because I grew up listening to my parents but I was always intimidated to speak it. Working with Rosario today was so encouraging for me. I'm excited for the next session. I've enrolled my whole family to learn Tagalog with Rosario and we're looking forward to the upcoming classes.

There are 2 types of speakers, new speakers and native speakers.

As a native speaker, Tita Rosario is very good at helping me refine my Tagalog. She does a good job at teaching the native speakers! She will tell me "Oh, that's a native speaker mistake" or "Native speaker mistake, here is the correct way!"

If you are a native speaker, SHE CAN TELL, and so will you. She will correct your grammar and make your tagalog beautiful!

Truly good at what she does!

Just do it, you'll be happy you did. Very friendly and effective teacher. I would supplement the lessons with talking to someone who is fluent. Having the regular practice in addition to these lessons which teach you how to properly form sentences fast tracks you to speaking tagalog.

Rosario is a wonderful teacher. She's patient and very supportive, and works to develop a strong foundation for speaking conversational Tagalog that is also grammatically correct. I strongly recommend her if you want to speak Tagalog as a native speaker.

I've been taking lessons with Rosario for quite a few months now. Rosario is a rare teacher who is both knowledgeable and a skilled communicator. I found each of her lessons to be focused and well structured. She has been very flexible with my lessons and totally understanding of my busy life. I truly appreciate Rosario for how she has helped me move closer to my goal of being fluent in Tagalog.

Rosario is very good at explaining the language, how words are formed, where and when certain words and phrases are used, and she is especially good at preparing and sending lessons ahead of time so you can study and be ready for class.

I had a good experience. This was only my first session but her teaching was clear. She helped me with my pronunciation as needed and as questions came up she answered them so that I could get a clear understanding.

Today was my first lesson and I can tell that I am going to have a great time learning with Rosario. She made the lesson enjoyable simple and easy to remember. Very anxious for the next lesson. I think I'm going to be able to have a conversation in Tagalog sooner than I think. I was encouraged and inspired to continue after Lesson#1

Rosario went out of her way to understand my level of Tagalog comprehension and was able to build a lesson plan around that. I was optimistic going into my first lesson, but after five sessions I am blown away with her professionalism, mastery, and skill. I am looking forward to continuing my lessons with Rosario to further my understanding of the Tagalog language.

This is my 3rd attempt at learning a new language: 1st was Japanese, 2nd was Spanish and now Tagalog with Rosario. I feel I have learned more with Rosario than with the class settings with the 1st 2 languages.

My goal, being married to a Filipina, was to not feel left out in Tagalog conversations. Being one on one with Rosario has kept my personal goal in mind. She is patient, understands my strengths and weaknesses, and stays at my speed. Her course is very well structured and I know what I have to do to reach my goal.

I am completely new to Tagalog and Rosario does a great job of moving at a pace that is forgiving and comfortable for a beginner. I try to study on my own but I really only feel like I have truly grasped the concepts once I review them with her.
