What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I teach Filipino (Philippines) Cuisine, generally, to students (maximum of 3-5 students) in one meeting of 2 hours, more or less, per session. I can also teach other international cuisines, in the comfort of my own kitchen on weekends only.

Three recipes (Appetizer, Entree, & Dessert) per session. I give them copies of the recipes. I provide the ingredients, demonstrate the cooking process, and they can take home  their "finished products."

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I owned and operated home-based carinderia/eatery for several years. I also learned from my Mom when she operated a carinderia for years at the ground floor of our home (Philippines) which is across a high school facility.

I took evening culinary classes for adults in the Philippines at Araullo High School in 1996.

I worked in a homecare residence under the management of Arc of Chester County for over a year, assigned with meal preparations and service (2016-2017).

I am the Owner/Operator of THE PAGEANT SUITES ( SUITES) since 2006.  A one-stop shop (event planning, catering, DJ and Mobile Disco, venue setup/Decors, Paperworks/Stationeries [Invitations, tarps/banners, etc.], and other events services).

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$45  (2-hour session) per student. minimum of 3 students per session. 

How did you get started teaching?

I have informal teaching experiences in cooking every now and then with friends, co-workers, and families.

I have experience in teaching (English for Everyday Life) and U.S. Citizenship for new non-English speaking immigrants (2007-2011) under SHINE (Temple University) as a Volunteer.

What types of students have you worked with?

Various age and different cultural groups.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I treasure all my past, present, and future events...every event is a new challenge to my creativity.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Hands-on is the best method of learning...not just watching how to do it. That way, you can experience the "feel" on how to do the cooking when you are on your own.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What kind of cuisine they want to learn?

If he or she is married to a Filipino or have Filipino friends. Take my classes.

Cost of Classs/es, Venue, and length of one session.

Lastly, can you take home the food you cook?
