I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to Paradise English and our Paradise English family! I have experienced teaching in many countries and feel spending time with students is a great privilege and honor. Many students have given me an in-depth insight and understanding not only of themselves but also their culture. It is with great pride to say we have had students from over 60 countries attend our Programs!

Regardless of your ability we will always encourage everyone to learn and try to help you make the most of your learning experience in paradise. Every teacher at Paradise English is dedicated to helping students succeed and truly believe they can help everyone learn English.

I believe there is a place for everyone at Paradise English – with the goal “to learn English and learn about yourself”.

I look forward to having you study with us and spending time with you. I also count on your help and feedback.

Sincerely,

Since starting Paradise English in 2005 I have seen it grow from an idea to what it is today, a place for people from all parts of the world to come together to learn English and share their cultures.

Our vision for PE has been realized and as we continue to grow so does our family.

Studying English is no longer a hobby but a necessity for many reasons. Work, Further education and travel being some of the reasons.

On a personal level, my goal has always been to make our school a learning haven for our students.

I speak not only for myself but for all the staff at PE, we are here to help you learn and improve your English and we will walk with you until you reach your goal.

We only ask that you come with an open mind and spirit and we guarantee that a wonderful experience will follow.

Welcome to Paradise English. Mabuhay!

My teaching journey over the last 10 years in Asia has finally bought me to this Wonderful school ‘ Paradise English’. My natural philosophy is to have students enjoy their English learning experience whilst in a relaxed and friendly environment. The challenge is to take the stress out of learning. As head teacher here at Paradise English my aim is to continue and build on what has already been achieved over the last 10 years — quality teaching with enthusiasm, encouraging confidence in the students’ ability to communicate using the English language.

Teaching is a great learning experience. In teaching, we learn differences amongst students. It gives us the opportunity to reflect back on our styles and methods of teaching. Thus, allowing us to improve ourselves and create an effective and efficient way to assisting students in honing their English language abilities. Teaching is a great learning experience.

I lived in the US for over 15 years and worked in the Fashion Industry in NYC. Living on Boracay Island is an everyday adventure; moreover, teaching English is my added retreat to living in this postcard place.

I believe that we should never stop learning, and we should never cease to seek the adventure in front of us. Here in Paradise English School, we instill the proper tools to the students for real-world scenarios. On top of that, we also encourage them to have balance between studying and having fun.

It’s fascinating to meet people from different countries. It widens my perspective of the world. I am passionate about teaching for this is what I love and enjoy doing.

To teach is to touch a life forever! It is something life long and means service to others. I always want to make sure that each day matters for my students because they matter. They’re what teaching means to me.

The main reason why I choose to teach is the fact that there is so much to learn from it. I believe that teaching does not only come from books but from the experience and the students as well. Being a teacher enables me to keep learning and gain understanding on different people and cultures. As it is said, “A good teacher is a good student”.

Teachers are more than what dictionaries define us. We don’t only teach what’s between the covers of the book, but we also touch the core of a person to be a useful individual in the society. It is more a calling than just a mere job; more a passion than a sole interest.

Teaching is the most noble profession of all, I must say. It always gives us satisfaction to teach and motivate our students to learn. They’re actually like flowers that we need to water with the knowledge to grow. But teaching is not only about imparting knowledge to our dear students, it’s also about transforming their lives in a very meaningful way.
