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.

Teaching has been a passion of mine that sprouted from an early age, just tutoring those around me. I soon realized the value and joy I, along with others, shared in these educational moments. As a summer camp leader for the past 8 years, I enjoy seeing kids grow and mature. Making them laugh and smile while learning is my goal. I believe that creating a friendly and enjoyable environment, where everyone can be comfortable is an important part of any learning community. I look forward to seeing each student who comes in and enjoying plenty of laughs together while making unforgettable memories!

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”.

I lived in the United States for over 15 years. I worked in the Fashion Industry in NYC for the whole time I was there. I had built my life in the US, but the call from the motherland was fairly strong. Living on Boracay Island is an everyday adventure, and that is how I found Paradise English. I was in-house trained by the best to cater learning to the coolest ESL students from all over the globe.

Teaching English is my added retreat to living in a postcard place like Boracay Island. My main objective in teaching is to build confidence in the students. Paradise English offers the perfect environment for any student who wish to learn the English language, albeit for personal or professional use. Paradise English’s teachers build unwavering motivation and inspire the proper tools for students for when they leave to face real-world scenarios.

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.

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.

I have been teaching for more than two years now and I’m still enjoying it. I have that same enthusiasm and each class still feels like the first time. 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. I always encourage students to think beyond their normal boundaries and paradigms and broaden their horizons.

The most satisfying reward a teacher could get is when she sees her former students having reached their ever-wanted goals, and to know you have been one of the reasons behind their success. For me, teaching bridges students to their goals, and we, teachers are their guides to lead them to their righteous destination.

For me, teaching in Paradise English is doing what I love to do. ‘Cause I don’t only teach but I also learn. And it feels like I’m travelling every time I meet new students from different countries. They let me discover new things about their country and culture. So, I’m more than willing to share all my knowledge and experiences to my wonderful students who become part of my life and make my journey worthwhile. I will help and encourage them to be globally-competitive English speakers in the future.

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.

RODEL ABALUS

Teaching is a noble activity (a noble profession) therefore, it entails huge responsibility. Teaching then is a difficult task. But then since things start with thinking, (+feeling+doing), by enabling one’s thinking to focus on truly caring/truly loving, teaching can lead to a better society, and a better world.

Learning is always constant. Teaching is a lifetime vocation. This mantra has been with me since I first started working. Teaching runs in our family and I learned and experienced early on that teaching offers satisfaction beyond words. I started working for the Government of the Philippines giving seminars and lectures on how to be an effective person at all times. I started teaching ESL in Thailand and my journey has brought me to this wonderful institution – Paradise English. Patience and understanding have always been my key qualities in teaching. As a one to one instructor, it is my drive to share and afford all students the English skills necessary to help them in this dynamic and ever-changing world.

The teaching opportunity I have with my students is highly enriching and fulfilling. I am a teacher and at the same time a student; I learn as much as they learn from me. Seeing the students improve and progress with their English skills is very rewarding. Not only does it awaken a sense of purpose inme, it is also a reminder that learning does not stop in the four corners of the classroom, but every moment of every day presents a new opportunity to grow and learn.
