ESL specialists Jelly Anas, Armida Rubis and Imelda Ugale were welcomed into the pioneering team. graphic artist Jan Tanguin and VA specialists Gabe Soriano and Lawrence Kwarteng, Jr. also joined the ranks of the growing list of the company’s pioneers.

COVID 19 CHALLENGES

The year 2020 ushered in an enormous challenge to humanity, the world was left grappling with the crises brought about by the pandemic.

At the onset of inception, Tuteecamp aimed to provide employment to talented educators in Baguio City who are struggling to find job opportunities, but Tuteecamp saw the need beyond the provision of jobs through their ESL products and took their development further. They created a Learning Management System (LMS) that caters to any requirement of any educational institution in need of a platform to conduct distance learning classes for their learners, as well as a built-in social media platform that acts as a learning hub for all its users.

(IMEC) just to name a few. Furthermore, to help the vision materialize and execute the set objectives, Tuteecamp has sought the assistance of Atty. Marlon Baruc for legal advice, and Dr. Czarina Alvaro-Abenoja for official counseling in reference to ESL and LMS. Now, Tuteecamp has become more than a dream, and its vision stands with its mentors “To Invest in Talent, not in Business”, Tuteecamp is born and now stands to support Baguio’s finest young talents of educators and curriculum developers.

Tuteecamp Adopts
Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
(CEFR) in Classifying both Online Teachers and Learners.

“The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is an international standard for describing language ability. It describes language ability on a six-point scale, from A1 for beginners, up to C2 for those who have mastered a language. This makes it easy for anyone involved in language teaching and testing, such as teachers or learners, to see the level of different qualifications. It also means that employers and educational institutions can easily compare our qualifications to other exams in their country.”

Reference: Cambridge Assessment English. (n.d.). International language standards. https://www.cambridgeenglish.org/exams-and-tests/cefr/

Reference: University of Cambridge. (2011). Using the CEFR: Principles of good practice. United Kingdom: Cambridge.

Students who would take TCELA courses except for LTM are assessed through an interview plotted on the following criteria.

Reference: IELTS Online Tutorials. (n.d.). Speaking assessment criteria. https://ieltstutorials.online/speaking-assessment-criteria

Based on the results of the interviews, students are classified into general level assessment classification (GLAC), a reference utilized to properly place students in the right courses and levels.
