Hello! My name is Michelle and I am from Indonesia. I was born and raised in Jakarta, where I honed my Bahasa Indonesia growing up. A few years ago, I pursued a degree in Psychology Counselling.
After graduation, I had so much more respect for people and their humanity. Working with people intrigued me and I love the fact we can learn so much from others. I enjoy learning new cultures, have deep empathy for others and I am a light-hearted person who likes jokes.
Me as a Teacher
From my experience, I understand everyone has their own pace and learning methods. I, myself, learned languages mostly outside of textbooks. I believe there are many ways for people to learn, so I’m open to engage in unique learning methods to cater to each individual needs.
I am patient, warm, empathic, light-hearted, and understanding. I understand learning a new language can be difficult for some people, and I definitely want my students to have fun learning the language! So I would love to accommodate in whichever pace the students’ feel comfortable :)
My lessons & teaching style
All lessons will be customised and adjusted according to the students' level.
I want my class to be flowing naturally rather than strictly following textbooks. Of course, proper planning may be necessary for some, but I believe flexibility is important when working with people. My students can provide me with their goals and interests, so I can help cater the lesson to their learning needs. I will do my best to ease your learning process, so the class will mostly be relaxed and fun.

Michelle's lessons are always very helpful. She always takes into account what I need from the lesson, answers my questions and is very good at explaining the grammar, sentence structures and overall use of certain words. She also explains what words/sentences are commonly used.
