Hi there! :)
I am Abraham. But you can call me Bram for short.
Well, I live and work in a developing city namely Jember in Jawa Timur (East Java). I have been managing a private course which deals with various subjects and English as one of them.
I am also an English teacher in a formal school in my city. My course and my school have decided to start a volunteering program in August 2018 and it keeps going on ever since.
I aim for the improvement of my students' ability in English by involving volunteers in their routines. I am eager to offer the chances for volunteers to see Indonesian culture and learn how it is to be Indonesian.
Please refer to our availability before you apply. You can check our schedule below as well as our availability in a year on our calendar
OCTOBER 2019 (occupied)
MARCH 2020 (available!)
Well read my further description below if you are interested. Looking forward to your coming! :)
Surely volunteers who help us will benefit on these things:
-Learning Bahasa Indonesia
-New teaching experience and culture sharing
-Unforgettable moment in outstanding tourism places
-Having Indonesian culinary adventure (I might also invite you to have dinner with my students, surely with Indonesian menu)
We expect volunteers who can:
- stay at least a week to two weeks
- speak English (native is preferable)
- contribute in our education with their talents, skills and knowledge
- come to my school daily (4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week) - negotiable
- meet my private students (once to three times a week) having dinner, chit chat with them etc
- we'll have a brief video calling to know you and your plans better.
