Online teaching has become one of the most popular career nowadays. For example, in 51Talk, the country’s fastest growing online English Language Teaching (ELT) platform, there are currently about 6,000 online teachers and counting. As many may want to consider teaching online, one must understand that it is as noble as classroom teaching and as professional. 

Here are the most common myths and the actual truth about a craft that requires passion:

Myth #1: Teaching online does not require a lot of skill nor training.
Fact: While it is true that experience is not required for you to be an online English teacher, it is crucial that you develop the skills for it and receive substantial training. A person may have the gift for speaking well and confidently, but he or she may not necessarily have the capacity or demeanour to teach and listen patiently to students. You need proper training for you to have the right mind-set and develop the appropriate skill sets. In 51Talk, all the online teachers get thorough training — and it is not just a matter of knowing what and how to teach. The teachers are also taught how to motivate and encourage.

Myth #2: You can teach any way you want and do anything you want while teaching online. 
Fact: The skill level and learning pace and style of the student must come into consideration first. You can apply your own teaching style as long as it agrees with the appropriate teaching method. Moreover, you may not be physically with the student, but you must give your full attention to him or her. The student must never feel neglected.

Myth #3: Online teaching is not as in-depth as a personal or face-to-face tutorial. 
Fact: Online teaching does not make the lessons or your interaction with the student any less real or substantial. Provided that you use the appropriate tools, materials and teaching style, and display the right attitude, your online teaching can be just as in-depth and significantly productive as a face-to-face tutorial.

Myth #4: Online teaching becomes a drag eventually, because you end up doing the same thing over and over again. 
Fact: Online teaching is far from being a drag because as the students evolve and improve their skill, so do your own style and skills as well. Moreover, you need to regularly review and revise teaching materials to make them new and relevant. Lastly, there is also the immense fulfilment that you get whenever you see a student improve — that will never get old and boring.

Teaching online requires commitment, discipline, and effort, but it also promises personal and professional development and immense satisfaction. You can see for yourself how fulfilling it can be to teach online by joining 51Talk as a home-based or office-based teacher. Interested to teach with the best, visit

Aster Clinic Pioneers Paperless System through its EMR Technology

Just months after it officially launched its Philippine operations, the Aster Medical and Diagnostics Clinic, owned by Aster DM Healthcare, is revolutionizing how medical services is being offered in the country through the introduction of the electronic medical records (EMR) as part of the value-add to its services. All transactions are paperless, from the moment patients sign in at the reception up to their consultations with the doctor, or different doctors at the clinic. 

The goal of EMR is to provide a centralized database that will allow Aster DM Healthcare’s network a seamless delivery of care to its patients. Through the EMR technology, patients are unburdened of the inconvenience of repeating the basic information and details of their concerns over and over again. Their records are inputted in the clinic’s records and will be updated every time they visit or consultations are made, which the doctors in our network can easily refer to for background information. 

Joyce Alumno, president & country manager, Aster DM Healthcare – Philippines stressed that this technology lessens the room for error. With everything documented in one system, patients no longer need to recall past tests or results giving our doctors more accurate background information about their patients. This also eliminates the unnecessary stress of waiting for feedback or doctor’s orders for the reference of the billing section. 

“This technology streamlines the flow of information across our network. Check-ups, as it is, is already stressful and in Aster, we are committed to delivering our promise of treating patients well. From the moment they are welcomed in our reception area and all throughout the process, we want to make it as convenient and stress-free as we possibly can,” Alumno said. 

The EMR technology is one of the standard services in Aster’s network and is proud to bring this technology to the Philippines, which is their first operation in the whole Southeast Asian region. 

“We are proud to pioneer this technology in the Philippines. One at a time, we are bringing in systems and technologies that help transform how we do our medical services today,” she highlighted. 

“What started as a way of giving back to the Filipino community paved the way for an opportunity to see what is missing and where we can provide help in an organized manner. Setting up clinics and hospitals is something that we have been doing in the past 28 years across the GCC region, Middle East, and India, and we are hoping to do the same in the Philippines,” Alumno said.

Aster DM Healthcare is one of the largest healthcare conglomerates in the Gulf Region, Middle East, and India. Founded by Dr. Azad Moopen, the Dubai-based healthcare conglomerate is committed in delivering quality and affordable healthcare in the countries where it is present. It first made it presence in the Philippines through its non-profit arm, Dr. Moopen’s (DM) Foundation, when it launched its “Save the Little Hearts” program that granted surgeries to children with congenital heart defects.

Aster DM Healthcare, the Dubai-headquartered healthcare conglomerate now operates a network of more than 290 establishments covering an array of healthcare verticals – from hospitals, medical centers, pharmacies, diagnostics and specialty centers, healthcare consultancy service, academics & research to a medical college and an advanced medical city.

Filipina, Abby Asistio meets Mark Zuckerberg

Fellow Filipino Abby Asistio flew to San Francisco, last January 31, 2016, and had the wonderful opportunity of being chosen as one of the eighteen invited by Facebook on their 12th Anniversary Friends Day celebration with California-based Alopecia awareness advocate, Rachel Regal. Alopecia is an autoimmune condition which results in partial or total head and body hair loss. Abby Asistio have had it since she was four while Rachel just developed it sometime in 2012, the same year she discovered that her 10-year-old daughter, Eliana, had it, too. Six inspiring stories were picked by Facebook among its 1.64 billion users and Abby’s friends were all amazed when theye’ve found out that Abby’s Alopecia story was one of them. Imagine that!

Abby and Rachel met each other through the double A hand sign campaign that Aby started in 2012, and They've been "connected" since then. Last year, Facebook Stories featured how these two were able to build a friendship, as well as campaign for disease awareness through Facebook! And last February 1st, Abby and Rachel had the chance to tour FB headquarters in Menlo Park, San Francisco, meet and chat with the people behind Facebook (Founder & CEO Mark Zuckerberg, COO Sheryl Sandberg, CPO Chris Cox, and a whole lot of awesome people), get crazy cool gadgets and have one of the best experiences of their lives.

Abby recounted that it was such a surreal feeling to be in the same room as the creator of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg. Mark Z was wearing his trademark look (jeans, sneakers, shirt and a big smile on his face), and had such a friendly, approachable aura and demeanor about him. Not at all intimidating! He shared stories about how the company started, its mission-vision, the ups and downs that come along, and their future plans. Those invited also had the chance to ask him questions. When Mark Z was asked about achieving success and life’s “impossibilities”. He said, “There’s a difference between impossible and things taking a really long time. Even if you’re not going to be able to do something in a short time period, if you care about something, you want to see the world to move into that direction… So the best thing to do is just get started and not be discouraged. It’s tough because this stuff is hard, or else people would’ve already done it.”

Abby Asistio got the chance to ask a question to one of the world’s 50 most powerful, successful women in business, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. Aside from Alopecia awareness, Abby is also an active Real Beauty advocate with girls and women struggling with various insecurities, being so consumed by the world’s unrealistic and sometimes superficial standards of beauty. So Abby asked Sheryl about her perception of it. Sheryl said that beauty is just like success and that no one could really define it for you. We are all unique. We have different stories, dreams and desires. We should explore our own inner and outer beauty, believe and embrace that we are beautiful, and never allow anyone to tell us otherwise.

Mark capped off his talk by sharing their company philosophy with everyone present. Though already having over 1 billion subscribers, there are still 7 billion people all over the world without access to all the meaningful connections and information that Facebook brings. One thing that the company stands by is that “things are always 1% completed”. It keeps them grounded, reminding them that there is always so much work, growth and progress to be done, and so many people to reach out to and help. 

Everything about the Facebook trip was overwhelming and inspiring according to Abby. More than anything, it reminded her about “responsibility”. We are all given our own platforms, in this case “accounts and connections”, to make a dent in this world. It is up to us to become complacent and take these vehicles for granted, or maximize the opportunities and use them to make a positive impact in this generation. Abby is grateful that Facebook has become a medium for her to communicate disease awareness and touch people beyond the confines of her tiny room and her country. Abby is also glad that she and Rachel are two out of millions of people choosing to recognize the importance of social media in contributing to making this world a better place, and actually doing something about it.

Truly, God plans the best adventures and creates the most beautiful surprises. Abby knows that she wouldn't have been handpicked for this if it weren't for Him, as well as the countless individuals who have cared and showed support for my advocacy. Abby would like to leave a positive thought to everyone that we should really take the time to search for and identify our “purpose” – that one unique, very specific calling that is the result of our talents, dreams, desires, passions and experiences. Once you find it, be faithful to it no matter how long or difficult the journey towards its fulfillment may be. You’ll never know where it could lead to, how far it could go and how large it could grow. 

Abby is also thankful that her campaign continues to spread and reach new heights and she is particularly grateful to Facebook for giving her this opportunity and to Novuhair, Nature's Answer to Hair Loss (, for always being so supportive of her advocacy and endeavors. Abby is proud and honored to have represented the Philippines and the Alopecia community in this once-in-a-lifetime, international event.

To make the aioli, mix the garlic, dill, and mayonnaise, drizzle with sardine oil (50 ml) and season with salt and pepper in a bowl then place the mixture in a chiller. After being chilled, you can already prepare the base which is the tomato and on top of it is the cucumber followed by a whole sardine straight from the can! Top it with aioli and merienda is served!

Mega Creations Premium Sardines guarantees the freshness and natural goodness of sardines in every can and bottle with the 12-hour catching-to-canning trademark of Mega Sardines that is perfect for every meticulous mom and dad who only want to serve the best for their family.

For lunch and dinner, the Mega Creations Premium Sardines in Spanish Style is perfect for a Sardines and Vegetable Curry and Sardines Gising-Gising, respectively. 

For the Sardine Vegetable Curry, sauté half sliced red onions, three cloves of garlic, and half an inch knob of grated ginger until fragrant.

Add a tablespoon of lime juice and you’re good to serve six happy tummies for lunch!

For the Sardine Gising-Gising, sauté one julienned red onion, four minced garlic cloves, and half a knob julienned ginger in one tablespoon of vegetable oil for 2-3 minutes.

Mix in one can of deboned and flakes Mega Creations Premium Sardines in Spanish Style and the rest of the sili and let it simmer until done. A Mega cooking tip, be careful not to cover the pot after you poured in the coconut milk so it won’t curdle.

51Talk kicks off 2016 Teacher Development Conferences

As part of its thrust to develop and engage its growing number of home-based online English teachers, 51Talk – the largest online English school in China and the Philippines with more than 5,000 Filipino teachers – recently rolled out the first leg of its teacher development conferences for 2016 in Angeles, Pampanga. Hundreds of 51Talk home-based online English teachers from different parts of Central Luzon attended the event.

Photo above shows teachers receiving their awards during the event

The conference was an excellent opportunity for the home-based online English teachers to mingle with co-teachers. They learned new things and shared best practices. It was also a night of entertainment, as the teachers proudly put on a talent show. The event culminated with the awarding of the region’s top online English teachers. 

Teacher Dalo, 30, from Angeles City, said, “Having the right attitude towards work helped me earn the Top Teacher award (for Central Luzon). I learned to teach, because I relied heavily on the trainings and family-like support that 51Talk provided.” Fittingly enough, he also won the grand raffle prize–a new laptop.

Another Central Luzon Top Teacher awardee is Teacher Alexei, also 30 and from Angeles City. “Because of my 51Talk Lesson Support team and trainers, I am more empowered to teach,” he shared. “It’s become my habit to spend as much time as I can to teach students, and I ensure that every student receives quality time for every lesson they take with me.”

Aside from regular events in different parts of the Philippines, 51Talk develops its online English teachers by providing full online support and continuous training. For career growth, top senior teachers can advance to home-based online trainer posts. 51Talk teachers earn based on the hours they put in and the quality of lessons they give, and by taking advantage of the different incentive programs. One can earn more than an average full-time job’s salary, while top earners can earn as much as P80,000 a month.

51Talk teachers carry a very noble responsibility. They help Chinese students learn English, which can actually change their students’ lives for the better – whether in career advancement or personal development. To learn more, visit
