I have over seven years of writing and language teaching experience with different age groups. Before joining Fluentbe, I had been an enterprise consultant for over two years at a Philippine-based business institute. My work involved writing business-related instructional materials in English for speakers of another language and helping small-scale entrepreneurs use English for content marketing, among other things. Together with my teammates, we published two books on agritourism and helped over a dozen enterprises expand their reach to international markets.
I had also been a paralegal for over four years at a government-owned corporation in the Philippines. As a paralegal, I wrote, reviewed, or proofread informational materials, policy proposals, pleadings, contracts, and anything in between. When not engrossed in paperwork, I was involved in teaching my newly hired colleagues about technical and legal writing techniques.
On top of my professional experience, I have a master’s degree in international studies and a TEFL certification. My training has familiarized me with the cultures and customs of many European countries and, more importantly, allowed me to teach academic and research writing.
