Why do you go to erya?

Wala akong gagawin tapos I really like the project. Gusto kong magturo ng public school students, gaya ng ginagawa ko sa high school. May Tulong Dunong kasi noong high school bilang part ng Economics and Christian Living subjects.”

What difficulties did you encounter in erya?

“Wala naman; mababait iyong mga bata. Iyon nga lang siguro, si Precious. Di siya masyadong nagsasalita, at mahina pa iyong boses niya. Sa games namin, she’s not really that participative.  Sa start, kailangan ko talaga siyang i-push para maglaro.

Sa bandang huli, siya na iyong lagi kong kinakausap. Nagkatabi na kami sa games at ineencourage ko siya maglaro. Medyo naging active na siya.”

What is your most memorable erya experience?

“Iyong habulan na laro at iyong paluan. Doon ko nakita na bata pa talaga sila kasi ang lilikot nila. Parang nakakatawa silang tingnan, tumatakbo-takbo pero di alam kung saan pupunta, parang subatomic particles. Memorable siya kasi doon talaga ako nag-enjoy.”

What else do you expect from erya?

“Inaasahan ko ang mas engaging na activities. Hindi ko pa kasi alam kung anong mangyayari sa tutoring session dahil GDs pa lang ang na-experience ko, but what I expect from the tutoring session proper is iyong holistic formation at iyong better na materials for teaching. Kasi based from my experience, it’s hard to get children’s attention if we as tutors are not engaging. We should have some sort of training to be more engaging kasi if we are not engaging, the lessons will not stick as much.

Holistic formation–aside from teaching the students the lesson, we teach them values. We should share ourselves to them and tell them what being a scholar is like[, especially the hard work being one entails].”

Kung may album si Eryana Grande, ano ang title nito at bakit?

“Hindi Ko Alaaaaam, Ate”

Sa tingin mo, ano ang relationship status ni Eryana Grande?

“Eryana Grande? Si… Ate Cecille? Taken siya. Taken siya ni Lord.”

Message to fellow tutors:

“‘Wag mapagod magtaya.”

Message to erya kids:

“Mag-enjoy at matuto!”
