I believe that everyone needs to be heard. I love to listen to my students' opinions on their learning experience and act upon their preferences in designing the lesson plans, teaching materials, and classroom activities. I also love to share with colleagues, create a nice friendly working ambience, and be helpful to each other to progress as a team.

I am an experienced English Lecturer with a demonstrated history of working in classes in the context of General English, English for Specific Purposes, English for Academic Purposes, and English Proficiency Exam Preparations. I started my career in Indonesian Higher Education in 2003 and have been teaching English for Academic Purposes for international students in the UK since 2019. Since April 2020, I have gone back into teaching my classes in Indonesia through Moodle, Google Classroom, and WhatsApp group while I am residing in the UK.

I have a strong education professional with a Doctor of Philosophy - PhD degree in Applied Linguistics from the University of Central Lancashire, UK, and graduated from the University of Melbourne, Australia majoring in Applied Linguistics in TESOL (Teaching English to Other Speakers). I started my higher degree education at the Andalas University, Indonesia, majoring in English (Literature and Linguistics).
