Hi everybody. I am Johannes. I am an engineer by education. I earned both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Civil Engineering in the United States. Spent 7 years there to complete my study and working as an intern, and as teaching and research assistant. During my career working for international companies I traveled extensively. From Aceh to Papua in Indonesia and overseas in the US, UK, Australia, Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian countries. I was also assigned to work for several years in the US, UK and Singapore. I first taught English back in the early days of my career. It was to the local communities in remote villages during my field assignments. I developed my passion in teaching then. Throughout my working experience I was lucky to have always given the opportunity to teach not only English but also a variety of disciplines related to my roles in the company. From Engineering & Project Management to Human Resources and from Business Ethics to Communication & Relations. I started working as a professional English teacher after retirement 8 years ago. From then on I teach at universities, companies, institutes as well as privately. I teach professors, professionals and students/youth. After a month course, I managed to obtain CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Cambridge University, UK. In addition to English I also continue teaching and provide advice in other areas of business and management and do business writing, translation and editing works. My hobbies are traveling and photography. I love adventure and the outdoor.
The breadth of experience from the different roles, locations visited, and the wide range of people, culture and age I encounter as well as other interests enrich me as an English tutor beyond just the language.
Kalau saya salah menggunakan tata bahasa ketika belajar bagaimana? Haduuuhhh ga masalah! Gurunya bakalan langsung ngoreksi kesalahan kamu kok. Aku juga begitu. Kadang salah ketik, salah tata bahasa, salah menempatkan subjek, tapi langsung diperbaiki dan diralat sama mba Dini. Atau, mba Dini pasti nanya begini kalau aku tetap ngotot kalau saya yang benar : “Are you sure?” Lalu kemudian, saya pasti mikir lebih lagi dan akhirnya menyadari kalau saya yang salah, dan disitulah saya belajar. Di dalam belajar, jangan pernah takut salah. Tapi, jangan terlalu sering melakukan hal yang salah juga ya guys! Remember: Think before you speak!
It’s already 3 weeks since I joined eBritish. I guess, this is a new way too learn English course. And I tend to see much improvement on my English after it with my mentor Dini. She is friendly and always lectures me honestly ahahaha. Anyway, currently I’m taking “Pertamax” Class which mean it has 12 sessions a month. Divide into 8 sessions for grammar and 4 sessions for daily conversations. Interested? Just WA admin above.
