  • Description


    Hello, my name is Fiqih, a computer teacher and English teacher. I work at two nearby secondary schools, and I also teach English to people in my community and help them learn to use computers.

    I need a person or couple who can help me practice to improve my English. I am currently creating my own course site for children to learn English and I will really appreciate creative ideas to develop it.

    You will also teach English and share culture with students in the secondary schools.

    I live in a village in the hills above Cianjur city. It is 20 minutes from Cianjur by Grab car or local mini bus.

    In addition of free food and accommodation, the Workawayers will experience the Indonesian Sundanese culture by living with me and my family. They also will have a great experience teaching in the local school with Indonesian students. Furthermore, we could help you arrange your trip to visit various tourists sites in the area.

  • Help


    Workawayers are expected to help me improve my English, for me who is still need to learn much. I would ask them to teach English and share their culture with my students at the schools as well. If you are interested in computers you can help me with my website and social media.

  • Languages spoken

    Indonesian: Fluent
    English: Beginner

  • Accommodation


    Workawayers will stay at my house, in a single, comfortable bedroom with free wifi Internet. I will provide local food for them such as rice, meat, and vegetables, and they are free to use the washing machine and computer as well. My house located nearby various plantation with excellent view, and it is a perfect place for morning exercise such as jogging or going for a walk.

    Because I live in the hills, the temperature here is cooler than in cities like Jakarta. There are rarely mosquitoes here! The mountain view is very beautiful and you can hike at the mountain or go down to the larger city of Cianjur.

    I have hosted many Workawayers and they become part of my family here, and also have become friends.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My place is located in Ciputri, near Cianjur, south of Bogor. You could come to Cianjur on the bus from Jakarta or from Bandung. I own a motorcycle, and can pick you up with it. Or you can take a Grab car, or even a local angkot mini bus (take the blue angkot that goes toward Cipanas), from Cianjur city to my home. It is 20 minutes from Cianjur to here.

    While you are here I could help you to see various tourists sites such as:

    Cipanas Palace/Istana Cipanas.
    Cipanas is a nearby town easy to get to on the local mini bus. Shop there or visit the local historical presidential house where you could enjoy its beautiful design and learning the local histories.

    Plantation Field:
    The Puncak Area offers a breathtaking, beautiful view of massive tea plantation field you could enjoy. There are various activities you could do such as: horse riding, exploring and harvesting the tea plantation, and paragliding. The local restaurants also offer various cuisine both locals and internationals.

    Cibodas National Park:
    For you who like to do Outdoor activity, you will enjoy the beauty of this National Park, where you could do some tracking to the summit of Mount Gede/Pangrango. You will come across the natural hot spring and crystal clear river in this National Park.

    Gunung Padang:
    A stone age relic recently discovered in Cianjur area. One of its kind in the locals, and it is presumably older than the Pyramid in Egypt. A must see attraction if you visit Cianjur.

    Please send me a message if you would like to know more.
