Maria Theresa Centeno Savella

Senior Lecturer


Maria Theresa Savella, an ABD (linguistics at Cornell), teaches all levels of Tagalog. She is co-author with John Wolff and Der-Hwa Rau: Filipino Through Self-Instruction (1991, revised 2005), a four-volume textbook that contains sufficient teaching materials for four semesters of semi-intensive Tagalog instruction from the beginning to the intermediate level. She and Professor Wolff also compiled reading materials in a Tagalog Reader for the intermediate and advanced levels. Two projects on supplementary pedagogical materials are also currently on-going.
