Hello, everyone, you can call me Niko for short. I consider myself to have high degree of curiosity, and good at many arts, though I am exceptionally well at languages. Some friends told me that I have a cool vibe when socializing, and tend to responding only when I feel I need to, but when I feel motivated I would be pretty much energetic. I am a good listener; I would spend the whole hour just to listen to stories. Details are what make the world; sometime I get frustrated when producing low-quality works by my standard, and believe me it is above average.

I majored International Relations in Universitas Brawijaya, in Malang. Battling hard stuff literatures, mostly in English, has been a habit since then. I have tried teaching English in the local orphanage around my home; additionally I have also been filling in in an English session of any organization. I have minimum international experience; Singapore is the only foreign land I ever visited, though I am visiting there regularly.

Learning language is best done through real-time activities, so I decided to play online games and watch movies as complementary English learning process and I am confident to say that my English has improved well because of them. With the current curriculum coupled with my method, I am keen to implement my method to everyone.
Expect some less stressful session during a class with me, as I will conduct the class with games and sharing sessions (read: grammars, vocabs, and stuff). I hope to see you soon!

Mr. Niko’s Note About BritishEnglishClass

Online learning has been continually progressing in recent years. The introduction of smartphone, the ease of access to it, and the constant development of the internet and many softwares have put many conventional, physical, activities at risk of losing its relevance, albeit slowly at first. People access internet constantly nowadays and they can access information with ease, be it about cats, memes, or even English. Many have no luxuries of sparetimes despite all that, and 9-5-milenials suffer most dearly. Some of them even realized that they had been lacking a crucial skill, English, after getting themselves into the workforce. The provides a solution for these people. An online learning platform with a real teacher and real-time interactions without having to sit down in a class.

My name is Niko, one of the BEC English teachers. I have been actively teaching online at the BEC for a year. For almost 20 years of learning English for fun, I never thought that I would be teaching English, not to mention online. My experience in the language is more of practical, but I have also learnt how important language structures can be; especially in my years in undergraduate. That is how I would like for my students to realize; when they have the needs, what comes next would be commitment. I usually start off with “breaking the ice” phase where we chit-chat casually without paying any regards to each others’ English, this is also an excelent time to test out their English without letting them know they are being tested. I would ask them many personal (non-sensitive) questions and try to build a theme and materials based on them. The second phase would be a cycle between “hard materials”, and “fun activities”; during which students would learn new vocabularies through stories or games. “English to start off your day” is the term I use to encourage my students to practice; from writing a diary to writing down a draft for presentation. I usually point out that “Mistakes are your friends. Love them, and learn from them” to every students. “Practice makes perfect”, a powerful quote to follow despite being constantly taken for granted.

  • Thank you mr. Niko for teaching me. From zero to intermediate. It’s very meaningful for me. You are one of the best tutors out there. You have always been punctual and the way you teach has always been easy to understand. During our time, I realized that when we learnt about anything, we can’t grasp it instantly. There is process and mistakes, and those require time. I’ve learned with mr. Niko for 3 classes.. 1 speaking class and 2 classes in business package. And I never felt so bored with the class. He always gave one topic to discuss as exercise to practice speaking in English. I enjoyed it. If anyone who reads this review and in need of private tutor in British English Course, mr. Niko is one that I recommend to improve your english.
    Anyway, thanks alot mr. Niko!
