Hello my name is Ryan. For the past several years I have been teaching English as a second language in Madrid, Spain. During my travels abroad, I learned and experienced different cultures and how to interact with people from varying backgrounds. Now that I've returned home, I am looking to continue providing private lessons to eager ESL students. I strive to provide students with fun and engaging classes that are specifically designed to meet their unique learning needs and goals. I can teach students of all levels as well as give courses for test preparation.
My lessons are designed in a three step manner. First, I present a new topic to you that we examine as a team and work through together. Next, we practice the topic through various activities designed to help reinforce what you have learned. Finally, you actually produce the skill that we have learned during our lesson. We do this final step to solidify your learning and help move the information into your long term memory so you can use it in your daily life!
During my time at Solex college, I taught adult ESL students the core skills of English. The school day consisted of four classes with a two hour duration. The core skills we focused on were reading, writing, grammar, and listening/speaking. Unfortunately, my time at Solex was cut short because my family has relocated to another part of the country but nevertheless, it was an enriching and worthwhile experience!
ECC Idiomas is a language school located in a small town in the north of Madrid, Spain. For three years, I taught students of all ages and skill levels all of whom were working towards a wide range of linguistic goals. From advanced TOFEL students looking to attend American Universities, to young children just learning the basics, I did it all at ECC Idiomas.
