Twenty-six years teaching Language Arts, Drama & Theatre Arts, and Ethics in International Schools in Thailand and now gives lessons in Elementary Level and Middle School Level in Culver City.

Methodology

I have had 26 years of teaching experience; first two years with the Ateneo de Manila Loyola University run by the Jesuit Priests in the Philippines, and 24 years with two International Schools in Thailand.
I am a very passionate educator and serious in my vocation. In my years of experience in the education field, I have tutored individuals from ages 10 to 40 years old. I always incorporate fun learning with serious learning, focusing mainly on English grammar, writing, and reading aspects. I myself often get bored easily so I make sure students I teach or tutor do not undergo such boredom. I do not only focus on the academic side of learning but as well as the holistic aspects of any individual I mentor. I pride myself in seeing my students learn and develop academically, especially those who are motivated to improve themselves to the best of their ability.

Background

I have been in the education field for 26 years of my life. I have taught and tutored students from the Elementary, Middle School, and High School levels all those years. All of my former students pursued their university levels after high school.
At present, I have students who have graduated and are now successful doctors, lawyers, and teachers.

Valente's resume

I graduated from the University of the Philippines in 1990 with the distinction of Bachelor of Science in Community Development. I then switched my focus to teaching and took education certification. My passion is in teaching and during the Academic Year 2015-2016, I was awarded "Teacher of the Year" by the district I worked at in Thailand.
