I taught Indonesian Language and Literature at the Melbourne Institute of Asian Languages and Societies (MIALS), University of Melbourne, Australia. I studied Bahasa, Indonesia for 10 years and can speak, read, and write in it fluently. I've written articles and a book in Bahasa, Indonesia.
I taught Political Science as an Assistant Professor at University of Melbourne, Australia and also as Associate Professor at the Graduate School of International Studies, Seoul National University, in S. Korea. I also have a Ph.D. in Politics from UC Berkeley.
I am qualified to teach Public Speaking because I taught classes on this topic at the university level -- for undergraduate and graduate students -- and also outside academia, for leaders, politicians, aspiring actresses/ actors to work on their Public Speaking skills. I also trained teachers and lecturers on how to prepare their lectures in front of small or huge classes and present them eloquently.
