May it be in their personal lives or professional careers, Filipinos are known to be well-rounded individuals who devote much energy and effort to their undertakings.
Such is the case for Teachers Yannah Allen, Angelica Fry and Jube Kathleen. They are online English teachers at 51Talk, a platform where thousands of teachers can be booked for online English lessons by Chinese students. According to them, 51Talk unlocked their hidden potentials and became an avenue for them to empower and inspire learners.
“I’ve always led a dynamic lifestyle and it’s common for me to be involved in many things,” shared Teacher Yannah, who also works full-time as a therapy coordinator at a Texas-based company. “I easily get bored doing monotonous tasks because I believe the only way for me to grow is by constantly exploring new endeavors, especially ones that will challenge me.”
By becoming an online English teacher at 51Talk, Teacher Yannah discovered her capabilities as a teacher. In her many months of teaching on the platform, she has learned how to deal with different kinds of students and keep them engaged. To make sure she’s always at the top of her game, Teacher Yannah constantly improves her English language skills by playing word games and attending 51Talk’s free workshops during her spare time.
Teacher Angelica, on the other hand, is a public school elementary teacher who teaches a number of subjects, such as Science, Music, Arts, Physical Education and Information and Computer Technology (ICT). At night, she teaches with 51Talk. Even though she had taught different subjects, Teacher Angelica only got to teach English when she joined 51Talk.
“I enjoy teaching and learning as an online English teacher. Since 51Talk allows me to experience what online teaching is like, I get to discover more of my capabilities as a mentor. In fact, I’ve adopted my online teaching methods in traditional classrooms, and I’ve realized the outcome is so much better,” shared Teacher Angelica.
As for Teacher Jube, who is a virtual assistant for a US-based company, teaching at 51Talk allows her to earn more at home and spend quality time with her family.
“I always commit myself to anything I do. At 51Talk, I give my all when I teach. I want my students to have a learning experience they will always remember,” said Teacher Jube.
Now in its 10th year, 51Talk has provided tens of thousands of livelihood opportunities to Filipinos.
51Talk Country Head Jennifer Que mirrors Teacher Yannah, Angelica, and Jube’s sentiments. She believes that teaching isn’t just a profession, but also an impactful way of touching lives.
