Staff Profile – Ellyvia Yanuarti (Elly)

Originally from Jakarta, Ellyvia Yanuarti (Elly) graduated from Bina Nusantara University in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature, specialising in Teaching Methodology. She began her first job as an ESL teacher soon after.

However, teaching hasn’t always been her choice of career. In 2009, she embarked on a journey to Auckland, New Zealand, taking a Diploma in Business Management and working in various jobs.

When she moved to Bali, she could no longer ignore her passion for ESL teaching and joined IALF in 2012. Since then, she has been teaching General English, Indonesian Language programs, and recently, IELTS Preparation Modular, both offline and online.

Last year, in 2019, she became an international English language test examiner and has assessed IELTS speaking tests at IALF Bali. She has also been involved in testing for the ELTA (English Language Training Assistance) program in Ambon and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In fact, she loved her work trip so much that she can’t wait to do another one!

When Elly isn’t at work, you can probably find her surfing small, fun waves at Kuta Beach or trekking around Bali’s numerous yet breathtaking waterfalls!
