Photo #123: May 2

A few minutes after posting my latest RareJob Philippines, Inc. vlog, I received a message on What the F, and now I have a new RareJob Incorp friend! When I started my YouTube channel, I simply wanted to share my food adventures, but now, I think it’s also a great way to make more people aware of how amazing being a Rare Job tutor is!!! Want to have a flexible schedule and pursue your other passions? Start HERE.

2016 Project 365, Day 121: Rare Job Coffee Klatsch 2016

Oh my gosh, where do I even begin to describe this day?! I attended RareJob Philippines, Inc.‘s 2nd Coffee Klatsch with our very hands-on CEO, Kato-san! The good tutor awardees for December 2015-March 2016 were recognized, and I am very pleased to have qualified for 2 awards: one for having many loyal students, the other for affiliate conversions. It’s my first time to receive 2 awards in one quarter, so naturally, I feel proud! ❤ I also took home lots of stuff haha! A mousepad for winning the group icebreaker game, pencil case for being one of the early birds, canvass bag for being Ms. Congeniality, and my favorite, the Rare Job umbrella for delivering a 5-minute speech! Not in picture: button pin and water container as the event’s souvenirs. Ah, I love you, RJ!!! THANK YOU!!! ❤ Can’t wait to create the vlog!!! 😀

I attended 2 events today, and my heart, tummy, & eyes are all so full hahaha! I met a pirate captain at the 24th RareJob Philippines, Inc.‘s tutor gathering and a chief at a bloggers’ event at Wang Fu Serendra! I sooooo can’t wait to publish the vlogs about both events!!! ❤



The 23rd Rare Job Tutor Gathering

I have been working as a Rare Job online English tutor since September 2014. I teach English to mostly Japanese students via Skype (there are very rare occasions when I get Korean or Chinese students, though), and I really enjoy it! I don’t need to commute to work, plus the schedule is very flexible, allowing me to work and still have fun at the same time!


Hello, RJ tutors & staff! 🙂

Every quarter, RJ organizes a tutor gathering (TG) for tutors to get to know each other, as well as interact with the RJ staff. Last December 2014 was my first chance to attend, but since it was held in Laguna, I opted not to go. My next chance came this April, and so last Saturday, the 25th, I finally attended my first TG. We were allowed to bring one guest, and I chose my best friend, Mark.

My date! :)

My date! 🙂

At the registration, we were greeted by some of the staff and even RJ’s CEO, Mr. Tomohisa Kato. Aside from our name tags & evaluation forms, we were also given a 2-piece pack of Japanese flaky pie-like snacks. It’s really nice to know that our CEO is the hands-on type of guy! 🙂 He’s also game for selfies! ^^


What do you call this kind of selfie? CEOlfie???

We were then escorted to our table. Each table had a Rare Job staff who would make sure that we were comfortable and at ease, so many thanks to Danes! She was very engaging! She’s so pretty, too. 🙂


L-R: Danes, fellow tutor & owner of this pic Jen, and moi. 🙂

The program for the guests was different from ours, so they were separated from us. Our program included speeches from RJ’s officers, games, raffles, and my favorite, recognizing the recipients of the latest Good Tutor Awards! I was really excited about the GTA because I had a strong feeling that I would be one of the recipients again! Hahaha! Confident much lol! 😀 I received my first GTA last December because of having so many loyal students, and it felt so good knowing that I started just last September (the evaluation period was for August-November 2014, so that makes me even prouder). I felt quite excited because this time, I would be receiving a certificate! The names of each recipient were flashed on the white screen, and when I saw my name, my heart skipped! 😀 However, the one controlling the PPT presentation was quick to go to the next slide, so I wasn’t called! Awww my heart broke for a few minutes hahaha! Anyway, I shyly told Danes about it, and yey! I was recognized! Sayang lang because I wasn’t part of the group shot, but I still got to have my picture taken with our CEO. 🙂

This one’s for my parents! Lol drama :p

Aside from this award, I was also pleased that one of the people (Ms. Jed) behind the Material Support group approached me and said something like, “Hi, Tutor Case.C! You always send us material corrections…(name of a Rare Job staff) is always happy to hear from you!” 😀 Kilig much! 😀


With Ms. Jed! 🙂

After lunch (the food was great, by the way!), we had the opportunity to explore 6 different booths, which aimed to make tutors more knowledgeable about RJ’s materials & curriculum, tips on handling Internet-related concerns, facts/myths about language learning, etc. Each booth encouraged interaction among the tutors, which led to a certain point system. My group, the green team, was announced as the one with the most number of points at the end of the TG, and we were each given a Rare Job alarm clock! 😀


My loot!

Overall, Mark and I had a great time, and I’m sure everyone else did! Our bellies were full of food, while our minds were also fed with so much useful information! I can’t wait to attend the next TG!!! 🙂 And for those of you who’d like to become an online ESL tutor at Rare Job (full time or part time), here’s your chance:


2015 Project 365, Day 115: Rare Job Tutor Gathering + Wrangler’s Block Screening

Photo #115: April 25

Today’s lunch, merienda, and dinner were sponsored by RareJob Philippines, Inc. and Wrangler Philippines! Haha! Such a busog lusog day! And I’m not just talking about having a full stomach; our minds were also fed during RJ’s 23rd tutor gathering (I will definitely write a separate blog post on this), while our eyes were once again pleased by “Avengers: Age of Ultron” via Wrangler’s block screening event. Tired but happy! 😀
