Academic Consultant/ ESL Teacher/Teacher Trainer
I am Ms. Naomie K. Lastra and presently working as the Academic Consultant, Curriculum Developer, ESL teacher and trainer of English Buzz. I have more than 10 years of solid teaching experience here in the Philippines and Indonesia, where I work closely with young learners ages 5 to 16 years old in the mainstream education (national and international schools), and teach Adults for ESL lessons. I’m a certified teacher and trainer and a graduate of Communications and Education degrees. I am willing to share my expertise to Indonesian and international students of all ages and help them achieve their personal and academic goals. I am originally from Manila, Philippines but I love Bali so much that I decided to make this my home. I am a lifelong learner so when I am not working, I read a lot, write journals and go ‘jalan-jalan’ in many places abroad.
I am Miss Kusuma, a native of Bali born on 25th of December 1991. I grew up in Mengwi, Badung Regency. I studied and received my Bachelor’s Degree in English from Mahasaraswati University Denpasar last March 2014. My very first teaching experience after finishing college was teaching English to private students for two years and joined an English language school for six months. And last July 2014, I joined English Buzz to expand and grow in my profession as I get to meet international students. I am currently teaching students in all year levels. We are a creative team and we inspire students to learn different languages using different methods in an enjoyable way. Currently, I am the Team Leader of the English Buzz family.

I am Elsi Surya Priyanti, and call me Elsi for short. My family is originally from the city of Denpasar, Bali. I graduated from STIBA Saraswati Denpasar last year and got my Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. Previously, I taught English in a language school in Denpasar and volunteered to teach English to less fortunate children at Yayasan Bhakti Senang Hati in Gianyar and also at a local school in Tabanan Regency. As for my hobbies, I listen to music of any genre, all the time. I also like to cook, watch Korean-drama series during my spare time and hang out with my friends during the weekend. I joined English Buzz this year and currently, I teach English and Bahasa Indonesia lessons to students in all levels from young learners to adults (business/cruise line/foreigners). I’m so glad that I have become a part of this wonderful family this year. I learn a lot each day from my co-teachers, friends and students, not only from the professional side but also personal lessons in life. The students are all sweet, talented and amazing too. I will always treasure all the memories I’ve been sharing with my EB family since I started working at this school.

I graduated from Undiksha University in Singaraja, Bali major in English language. I’m an English teacher at English Buzz teaching grade school and middle school students. I also teach at a vocational high school (SMK) in Gianyar. I’m a creative person so aside from teaching, I own a convection business, which means I design and produce t-shirts and other types of clothing materials. Probably the T-shirt that you are wearing right now might be one of those I’ve made in my shop. As a hobby, I like dogs very much but no so much on cats. Hope to see you at Ebuzz and learn more about your English teacher.
