Chresente C. Garong – Country Director ITTI Philippines

Chresente C. Garong or Ace as he is known in the industry started his teaching career in a Korean owned language Center in Cebu, Philippines in 2004. He taught Korean and Japanese students of various English proficiency level and of different age groups. He fell in love with the job so he decided to pursue education at Cebu Normal University and later on passed the licensure examination for teachers. He continued his post graduate degree in English Language Teaching in the same University.

Ace also tried teaching Filipino students in the university level as well as worked in the corporate world but they were short-lived endeavors because he went back to his first love which is ESL/EFL teaching. For eight years, he devoted his service in teacher training as TESOL Center Manager and Trainer in Cebu, Philippines.

He organized teacher training for public school teachers and fresh graduates to promote TESOL and in the hope to enhance the quality of ESL/EFL teaching in the country. He extended his reach to Vietnam in 2015 when he was commissioned by Tra Vinh University in Tra Vinh Province and the Ministry of Education and Training to train 100 Vietnamese public school teachers in the entire province.  

Ace recently established CIELLTT Inc. to provide support to many Filipinos who wish to gain international certification in ESL/EFL.
