Rumar G. Marquez – ESL Tutor

rumar-marquez-formalHi, I’m Rumar Marquez.

At the age of 17, and as the eldest among my four siblings, I started working as a waiter in a fast food chain to support myself financially. At a young age, I have learned how to value my hard-earned money and just to spend it in buying necessary things that I need.

I got married at 20 years old.

I persevered with an office job that is well-compensated to support my family. Then, despite me having no knowledge on how BPO industry works, in 2007, I enrolled for a scholarship to improve my English skills and to learn how the BPO industry works. After 3 months of comprehensive training, I was hired in my first BPO company as a Sales Representative.

I believe that experience is one of the best teachers. I was able to acquire new skills, learned a different perspective in life, proper ways of dealing with different kinds of people, high tolerance of handling stress and pressure and it helped me become a better person and molded me into who and what I am today.

rumar-marquez-outdoorsI decided to quit my job as a Fraud Analyst in 2017, to move to the countryside with my family. It was difficult at first, since I left my job and we needed to leave our home. But that was also the reason why I became a homebased freelancer.

My first homebased job was as an ESL Tutor, where I teach English to Chinese kids and teenagers. Then after some time, since my wife got pregnant with our third child, I decided to apply for a part-time job for additional income. I applied and got hired as an Online Arbitrage Expert for Amazon, where I source for products to sell them on Amazon for the client.

I do Online Arbitrage Sourcing in my free time in the morning or at night, since it is a quota-based job. Then in the afternoon to evening, I am an ESL Tutor since it’s the peak hours for the Chinese students. During weekends, I help my wife sell her home and kitchen products online.

After all these years of ups and downs, I can say that being a freelancer gave me better opportunities in life. I was able to step out of my comfort zone and see what other things I can do, something which I was not able to do when I was working in an office-based company.

Now is right time for me to show you that I can be an asset of your business. That I am the perfect match that you are looking for. That the letter “R” in my first name means “Reliable”.

I am looking forward to working with you soon.
