“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.

“Moving to teach in Solo has been great. I get to meet students from various ages and it makes teaching even more fun!”

I got my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Bina Nusantara University in Jakarta. Despite being a computer science graduate, teaching English has always been my passion and I taught English in Jakarta for many years before joining IELC in 2016. 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.

“I believe that once you speak English, you can connect with people all over the world.”

Hi! My name is Prili. I graduated from GSBC, a private college in the US, with a BA in Integrative Studies (Intercultural Studies and Counselling). I also completed an online TEFL certification while I was there.

“You can be anything you want, but you need the right leader to help you grow and stay inspired."

Inspiration feeds our lives. I have always searched for inspiration from others and I love being a source of inspiration for others too. I graduated from UGM with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. And yet, even though I have finished my studies, I keep seeking inspiration and wisdom in my life. If there is one thing that motivates me, it’s the opportunity to grow and teaching at IELC definitely inspires me to keep growing all the time.

Benita Saraswati

Magelang, Indonesia

“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.

“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.

I have been in the field of teaching, facilitating, directing, coaching and training for more than 20 years now, both in the Philippines and elsewhere, including Indonesia. Seeing my students achieve their full potentials is the source of my joy and the thing that most motivates me is helping them learn and improve.

"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.
