Su di me

Hey! My name's Ryan, I’m from England and I’m 25 years old. I’m living in Medellin, Colombia to teach English and inspire everyone I can. I've been teaching for around three years in a variety of places in South America with many different people, abilities and ages. I am very patient and encouraging, which helps my students to learn very quickly.

My favourite lesson is when you talk about topics you are really passionate about. I love to hear the excitement and inspiration when you discover the words to describe something you love to share with others.

Learning should be fun and interactive, not boring grammar exercises or vocabulary drills, but real life situations so you become prepared to communicate in this new world which will open up for you. I am here to support you and prepare you for this new life of fantastic opportunities.

I have a bachelor's degree in Physical Geography so I love to talk about travelling, culture, environmental issues, development and politics. But I also love to listen and discuss new and interesting topics I haven't thought about before.
