About Ryan

I have spent the last ten years living and teaching students in Asia. In Korea, I taught K-12, in both public and private schools. In Vietnam, I taught in Ha Noi and in mountainous Ha Ting province. In Indonesia, I taught ESL to mostly Russian surfers and real estate managers on Bali. In Malaysia, I worked as a teacher trainer in the rural schools. I enjoy teaching with music, video games, role plays, and activities that engage the learner in ways that make learning fun and memorable. The experience of teaching has made me value learning as a life-long pursuit, and it is a pursuit of happiness.

I studied English literature and language at Western Michigan University, earning a BA in English in 2005. I am also nearly finished with an MSc in Geographic Information Systems, specializing in GIS for Education. In 2007, I earned the CELTA, which is a certification to teach English to adults. I teach anything related to English, from English language to literature, from writing to testing, from young learners to adults.

Regardless of your reading level, speaking level or testing level, sometimes all you need is encouragement. A good tutor knows how to ask you the right questions and to guide you through the discovery. I hope to see you soon.
