- 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 just finished my first lesson with Rosario, and I absolutely loved it! She is so encouraging and fun, and had a very structured lesson plan. I'm so excited to continue on this language journey with her. 🤓
Very nice and easy to talk to.
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.+ Read More
Excellent! Looking forward to the next session! We covered a lot in such a short time without it feeling overwhelming.
I don't know why I was so nervous, she was extremely nice!
Excellent first lesson, excited for more
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!
Very Good Instructor!!
She is a very friendly teacher that made learning fun.
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.+ Read More
Always excellent and inspiring cannot wait for next lesson
Learning and comprehending grreat
As always EXCELLENT
The experience was more than pleasant and very educational and gives me the desire to learn quickly and be able to converse with the teacher in her native tongue
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.+ Read More
She is a fun instructor, very patient and knowledgeable.
I love Rosario
I really enjoyed my first lesson with Rosario. She makes you feel very comfortable and I am looking forward to more lessons.
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.+ Read More
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.
Fantastic, lessons was structured and I learned a lot.
Very patient and knowledgable.
Rosario is such a patient teacher. I really love her! I would recommend her to anyone interested in learning Tagalog.
Very patient and understanding! Can instruct very well!
She is absolutely great! I am so looking forward to continuing my classes
I Love Rosario teaching method. I am benefiting from her Style Of teaching greatly She is the BEST. She comes highly recommended by ME. She makes the DOTs connect in understanding the Languages. I LOVE IT!!!!!
Excellent instructor, very thorough.
Rosario is an excellent teacher. She provided lessons catered to my level of understanding and reviewed each lesson thoroughly. She's patient, uses time efficiently, and makes sure there is progress during each lesson. Her students can always expect to walk away from each class learning so much.+ Read More
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 is a perfect teacher! I am so lucky to find her! She was well prepared for the lesson, and she would also make adjustments based on your needs. She is also humourous. This is just my first lesson, and I cannot wait for the next! I feel confident to make a progress with Rosario's help!+ Read More
It was awesome, I think she is a great teacher looking forward to next lesson
My first lesson was great. She is so patient.
Rosario is an extremely helpful and knowledgeable teacher. Her teaching methods work for me and after she explains the material it makes much more sense. I would recommend her to anyone trying to learn or enhance their Tagalog.
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.+ Read More
Rosario is very helpful. The lesson was well structured. I recommend her.
I've only had one class so far, but I can tell she knows her subject very well. Not just as a native speaker, but as a teacher of the language. Rosario is very nice, patient and follows the pace that you want to go (slower or faster). Great so far!
Ate Rosario was patient, friendly, and easy to talk to! I look forward to many more lessons.
She was very thorough and attentive. She helped break down the pronunciation of words and how to properly execute them.
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.
Rosario is very accommodating, and she teaches to the strength of the student, not redundant. She understands what and why I need to learn Tagalog.
My first lesson with Rosario was a nice experience. As a beginner, she introduced me to basic greetings that I felt were good to know for my future travel plans to the Philippines. I enjoyed her friendly personality and will continue my lessons with her..
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.
I am completely new to Tagalog and Rosario
Very nice lesson from a very kind teacher.
Very fun instructor! Takes her time to teach every detail of lesson. Patient and kind and knows the answers to all my questions...
Rosario takes time to go through the concepts at a pace that really helps me to learn the material. She uses time well and is organized in her lessons. I'm a beginning Tagalog learner, but I've been surprised how much I've learned already! I definitely recommend her as an instructor.+ Read More
Awesome teacher. Very energetic and helpful. I have enjoyed my tagalog lessons so far and definitely plan to keep going.
