Marian Rivera is "back" in school.

Just like most parents during this pandemic, Marian has added tutoring to her list of parenting duties.

Five-year-old Zia Dantes is currently in Kindergarten and the celebrity mom is taking these classes alongside her daughter.

"Nag-aaral din ako kasabay niya! Sabay kami nag-aaral," the GMA-7 actress said in her PEP exclusive! interview on February 9, 2021.

The celebrity mom had back-to-back interviews on Zoom, making it difficult for her to help Zia that day.

She said to PEP.ph, "Kaya iyong explanation ko kanina, sabi ko, 'Ha? Wala na akong time!' Kasi hindi mo naman puwede pabayaan iyong anak mo na may sinasabi iyong teacher, 'tapos gagawin nila, 'tapos may Seesaw pa tinatawag na doon mo isa-submit iyong mga assignments at mga activities ng anak mo."

Seesaw is one of the classroom apps that schools currently use to facilitate virtual learning.

"Paano naman magagawa ng anak ko? So kailangan mo talaga i-guide at gawin namin together iyong gawain niya sa school. So, sa madaling salita, nag-aaral po ako ngayon at ako ay Kinder."

Marian revealed that Zia has been waiting for the pandemic to end.

"Tanong iyan nang tanong iyan sa akin kung kailan daw matatapos iyong virus. 'Hindi natin alam anak, so sa ngayon, magdasal tayo na maging safe tayo at mga mahal natin sa buhay. Balang araw matatapos din iyan. Makakapaglaro ka na.'"

Marian added that her daughter loves to socialize. "Si Zia pa naman Miss Friendship iyan. Lahat ng classmate, friends niya. Kahit hindi nga niya classmate, friend niya. Looking forward maka-mingle ulit siya ng mga tao kasi siguro gusto niya makipagsocialize, nakikipag-usap, nakikipaglaro talaga. Ganoon talaga personality ni Zia, e."

For now, what Marian does is call up the parents of Zia's classmates and arrange a Zoom get-together.

"Nakakatawa na pati mga bata talaga ay nakakapag-adjust na sa ganitong klaseng sitwasyon. Pero siyempre, kung given a chance, mas masarap pa din at mas maganda makita na nakikipaglaro sila sa ka-edad nila na aktuwal nila nakikita."
