JROOZ has a strong team of instructors, all of whom were trained according to the objectives of the English Department. The instructors consist of professionals such as nurses and teachers, who have gained an overall score in the IELTS of 7.0 and above. To standardize teaching methodology and approach in all of JROOZ branches, all teachers undergo a Teacher Training Program where they learn how to teach IELTS to students of diverse backgrounds. More importantly, they learn how to accurately diagnose the student’s English proficiency, and assess their Writing and Speaking accurately. Through this program, JROOZ is able to maintain quality teaching inside its classrooms, while continuing to improve its programs.

The English Department is headed by its Director, Ms. Ria Sindayen-Hilis, English language educator with extensive experience teaching Filipino professionals. Each JROOZ branch is also led by a Coordinator who has aced the IELTS himself or herself, and has excellent track record in terms of instruction and pass rates.
