    Description

    Hello workawayers! My name is Tono. I am a highly motivated and an open minded person. I live in a small village called Tombula in Muna, Southeast Sulawesi. I am an English teacher and an organic farmer. I run a free English immersion school teaching environmental awareness, social studies, health education, arts education, science, etc... to kids, teens, and adults in Tombula and the surrounding villages. This school is non-profit and is based on the principles of learning, sharing, and empowering.

    We offer a caring and friendly environment for you to live and work, and are excited to share our culture with you. We have hosted many workawayers in the last year and had wonderful experiences with each of them. They have each helped to develop the school with their ideas and hard work. We are looking for more people that want to continue to help our school grow.

    We have created the first English library on Muna. The library now has over 1,000 books and counting! Our English reading center helps our students and the community around the villages learn English and encourages reading. It is very hard (almost impossible) for us to get English books her on Muna, so we would greatly appreciate if you could bring books that range from easy to intermediate level.

    Furthermore, we are hoping to make a website to empower more people, so we would love to work with people who have website design experience.

    When you are here you will primarily be teaching English in the ways that interest you and that match your ability, basically anything that involves your imagination and creativity, but there is also work to be done on the construction of the school and in our garden. You will also have lots of time to explore the island of Muna. We can take you to many beautiful lakes, caves, and beaches where you can swim and we also can show you around the island via motorbike.

    Help

    When teaching the local children, teens, and adults, please feel free to incorporate your own ideas. We have a curriculun that we use as a guideline, but we feel that teaching seems to work best when the teacher has ownership of the creative input. Please remember that the students will often come to class straight from school so keeping the sessions fun and interactive is the way to go! The students love learning new skills, so if you have a particular skill or interest you can base some of your sessions around the skill or hobby.
