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 need, the objective and the pace of the 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 don't forget, cooperation. So let's have a wonderful experience learning Tagalog.

Maraming salamat po at mabuhay!

Rosario is an excellent instructor who patiently teaches her students. The art of learning any language is a difficult and yet Rosario makes it fun and enjoyable. If you are looking to find someone to teach you Tagalog, I sincerely recommend her. She will guide you through grammar lessons as well as give you insight on the Filipino culture! She teaches all levels and will work with you on your goals.

This lesson was excellent! There are so many nuances to a language and it is so good to have them explained instead of just memorized or learned as part of the grammar. The why is also important and helps cement that knowledge more. Rosario is so good at this!

Rosario has been able to work with me closely to assure that the fundamentals of Tagalog are engrained in my head. She should write a book on how to learn the language because she clearly has excellent teaching skills and has broken the language down into a system that works for native English speakers. Highly recommended

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!

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.
