Mabuhay! I am Mai, also known as Ginang (Mrs.) Sciarratta to my students. I have taught Filipino language for over 13 years in San Diego, California at the high school, college, and elementary levels. Being a native speaker and a student of Filipino language and its structure, I developed a course that would make Filipino accessible for non-native speakers. Since launching the course in October 2019, I've polished the lessons to benefit all learners. My goal is to help you acquire my heritage language through simplified concepts. From classroom to online, here it is with much love and passion for lifelong learning, from me to all students of Filipino, past, present, and future.
