When you first listen to Tagalog, it probably doesn't give the impression of being a particularly easy language. Truth is, learning to speak Tagalog fluently is much, much easier than it sounds, even for complete beginners!

In my class, I will help you to gradually improve your listening comprehension, vocabulary, pronunciation, sentence structure, and grammar until you eventually sound like a native Filipino like me (wink!). Most importantly, we will make it efficient, fun, and engaging!

So what are you waiting for? Book your Tagalog lesson with me and converse in Tagalog in no time!

About Zyrah M.

Hi there! I am teacher Zhy, your next language teacher! I am very excited to see you in my class.

Here's something about myself: I was born and raised in the Philippines and now living in San Diego, California. I love teaching since I was a kid - I would always pick the role as a teacher during our playtime. I started my online teaching career in 2010 while earning my business degree in Marketing Management. I taught students of different ages from 5 years old to professional adults. Even when I was working at the corporate (admin & marketing) I still demonstrated my passion for teaching through conducting training and seminars. Before moving to the US, I was also a volunteer Sunday School teacher at our local church in the Philippines. It was fun and very fulfilling to enjoy what I love while serving God.

When I’m not on the job, I love hiking with my family or friends; working my way through every recipe in the family cookbook; being creative with crafts and cross-stitching; and indulging my love for seeing new places with my loved ones.

I have had a great experience working with Mrs. Maclan. She gives a good blend of culture and language mixed in with her lessons. Lesson pacing is good, internet connection is stable, and I am enjoying learning Tagalog.
