“I love watching students develop and grow in confidence when they begin to master English. When my students develop, I develop, too.”

Hello! I graduated from the Faculty of English Letters at Sanata Dharma University in Yogyakarta with a Degree in English Language and Literature. I spent many years in Jakarta teaching in the English literature faculty at BINUS University. I joined IELC in 2006 and I have helped hundreds of students to excel in the IELTS and TOEFL exams. I teach all levels and also help design IELC’s merchandise and posters.

I mostly teach academic classes for IELTS and TOEFL and I'm involved in teacher training at IELC.

“You are learning English every day, whether you realize it or not. All you have to do is just enjoy and love every part of the process.”

Hello everyone! I earned both my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Economics from Diponegoro University. My choice of becoming a teacher was inspired by one of my professors. I find teaching very rewarding, especially when my students become more confident. I like watching movies and playing video games and believe it or not, that’s what made me love learning English in the first place.

“It's never too late to learn something new".

I believe that there are no limitations in what we can learn. We're never too old to start learning something new and it's exactly the same when it comes to learning English. I graduated from the English Department in Sanata Dharma University, Yogyakarta. After graduating, I taught English to professionals in a national corporation in Kalimantan and I saw just how important English is for the Indonesian work force. That's why I believe English is definitely one of the most important skills of the 21st Century.

Hello, my name is Rita. I am so blessed that I found teaching because it is the one thing that can help me achieve my dream.

“A teacher is a multitasking educational rockstar who lives to inspire and loves to encourage.”

When my students call me Ms Dayen, it always ignites my passion in teaching! I graduated from the English Department, Universitas Sebelas Maret. Teaching English for me is like sharing our piece of cake to friends. On its own, cake is delicious, but what makes it even more delicious is by eating it together with people I love! Therefore, I feel really encouraged to share my English knowledge to others since learning English has been a deep passion of mine since I was little. Then I found IELC to be the perfect place for me to fulfill my dream, so I took a chance to express myself here and start my journey.

"There's so much joy teaching in IELC."

Good and bad days come and go when I work as an English teacher. But, as an experienced educator, I know that everything is just part of the fun and that results will take time!  The most inspiring and rewarding part of my job is when I see my students develop their knowledge and outlook on the world around them. When my students are able to master what was difficult for them at first, it fills me with immense pride! I truly believe that each and everyone of us has unlimited potential, we just need the right teacher to uncover it!

“Sharing stories is what I most love about being an English teacher”

Being a teacher gives me the opportunity to play an important role in the lives of our students. Sometimes, I play the role of a sister, or a friend or even a mother and I learn so many new things in each of these roles. I’m so grateful to have a chance to share my stories and listen to the stories of my students during class. Learning English is about communicating and this is what I most love about being an English teacher.

"I simply love seeing my students achieve their English language goals"

As an Indonesian growing up in Australia, I understood the importance of understanding different cultures. And since English was my first language, it was only after I studied in Indonesia that I learned Bahasa Indonesia. After graduating from university, I realised that I had a passion for teaching. And it is this passion that I bring to IELC by sharing my bicultural experience of how conquer the English language in a fun and easy way.

"My life's mission is to transform lives by imparting literacy"

My experience in the development sector led me to become a literacy advocate. Since then, it has been a my goal to impart the gift of literacy, a necessary a skill for lifelong learning. My post-baccalaureate education in language and literacy, specialising in reading, brought me to learners needing early reading intervention, remediation and enrichment. This is what motivates me during my English classes.
