  • Description


    Hi guys, my name is Philip, I am a father of a lovely daughter and 2 adorable sons, my wife is a housewife. We live in a small town, which is situated between Solo and Jogjakarta (both sites are the center of javanesses culture, 30km away from the famous Merapi volcano), named Klaten. I am a private English instructor, private Bahasa Indonesia trainer for foreigners and also a Symbol Reader. A successful Language Learning does not need hundreds or thousands of vocabularies or theory. It is more on the experiences.
    Thanks to workaway.info and its foundation, whom creatively makes any language learners meet and interact, each other.
    This experience is valuable for me especially for my students.
    My students came from many background mostly are the less-fortunate ones.
    And in general I dedicated my teaching English work for people in my community. To be honest, I am not a wealthy person, I just want to do something for people.
    Beside of teaching I also had a gift to read symbols, by this gift I can give my student a clue of what they are supposed to choose. i.e: choosing subject to join in the university, its weird for many but helps this far.
    If you are about traveling to Indonesia, please do not hesitate to contact me. We will feel happy if you happy staying with us.
    My place is 28 minutes away by train from JOG Yogyakarta international airport. Call me when you arrive in Klaten train station.
