English Lecture

Hi… My name is Laily. I was born in Mataram, NTB, and now live in Batam, Riau Islands. I studied English Education at Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang, and earned my M.Pd in the same major from Universitas Mataram. I have been teaching English for more than 5 years. I was an English tutor for General English and TOEFL Preparation for almost 2 years. Currently, I work as English education lecturer at a private university in Batam.

My approach to teach English is based on what I have learned inside and outside the classroom with students as well my own experiences learning the language. I like to make my lessons fun and interactive to motivate learners actively use English. English especially becomes a lot more fun when you take part in activities like story telling and writing what you have experienced. My tip for learning English success is “The best way to be a fluent speaker of English is to speak it confidently.”
