Greetings! I'm Ismail! I was born in Geneva, Switzerland, and grew up in New York City from elementary until high school; and subsequently relocated to Australia to pursue my Bachelor's in Canberra and Master's in Sydney. I speak both English and Indonesian as my mother tongue. I have extensive work experience in media and communications, public relations, information technology, as well as international organizations. I’d like to think of myself as an expressive and communicative person – who loves to talk about anything related to traveling, history, technology, politics, movies, pop culture and much more.

Ismail is a very good teacher! He knows a lot of things and he is very open-minded. So far, he has been the teacher on Italki who was able to give me the most precise vocabulary and corrections. He has a very good energy which make our lessons always very enjoyable and fun. Thank you :)))

I needed to improve my fluency in speaking English and prepare for my future job. in each lesson Ismail brought up interesting conversation topics.He also challenged and motivated me. Every lesson he made notes and sent them to me so I could practice during the week and prepare for our next lesson. He also provided many valuable tips and exercises to broaden my communication skills. The lessons with Ismail are funny but also very productive. I definitely improved my English and became more confident and fluent and learned many new vocabulary, idioms and expressions. It was always really easy to communicate with him in case I had to reschedule the lessons. He is always on time and well prepared. He is an excellent teacher and I definitely will schedule new lessons. I absolutely recommend Ismail as tutor!

Ismail is a fantastic teacher! He has been applying various ways to make the class fun and fruitful, e.g. book reading, vocabulary study, free talk, sentence building etc. My 11 years old daughter enjoyed so much the class and learned a lot of new vocabulary while reading the fun stories of Harry Potter. I highly recommend Ismail to all English learners!
