From a very young age, I have always been interested in the English language. It all started when I’ve spent too much time watching English kid shows and blabbered words and phrases I’ve picked up along the way. As I got a little older, I was given proper English education from The British Institute and attended an international class in high school, where I received the IGCSE and A-Level certification from Cambridge. Several years later, I was fortunate enough to graduate with a bachelor’s degree from Bandung Institute of Technology. Other than a degree, I also obtained some teaching experiences as an assistant lecturer and a voluntary English tutor for some of my friends.
After graduation, I took the Academic IELTS and achieved an overall band score of 8.0, with speaking as my greatest strength. I took the TOEFL IBT a year later and managed to improve my score, especially in writing. Between these timeframes, I’ve traveled to different parts of the world, shared interesting stories with foreigners, and worked for an international organization. My work required me to communicate with native speakers, both in oral and written form. By having to read technical documents, professionally engage with stakeholders, and deliver written analytical reports, I was able to sharpen my English skills. I genuinely believe that with a lot of practice, patience, and a good teacher, anyone can master English!
I look forward to seeing you in class! We’ll learn, laugh, and most importantly, have fun 😊
