About Ryan

Hola a Todos!

I will be receiving my Master's in Hispanic Studies from Villanova University in May of 2016, where I also teach undergraduate Spanish as a full-time Graduate Student.

I have a wealth of experience teaching and tutoring second languages, and living in Spanish-speaking countries. In total, I've spent over three years living and studying in South America, mostly in Argentina and Chile. I have also traveled to Uruguay, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and most recently Brazil, where I did field work last summer. I presented this research in April 2016 at the Brazilian Studies Association Conference at Brown University.

I have succeeded as an educator of adults, children, and adolescents, in group and one-on-one settings. During the 2010 school year, I taught English to middle and high school students in Calama, Chile, through the Chilean Ministry of Education's English Opens Doors program. Following my experience in Chile, I worked as an ESL instructor in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with Pensaris Corporate Training.

I also currently work as an interpreter at the Villanova School of Law Clinic for Asylum and Refugee Services, translating and advocating for low-income, Spanish and Portuguese-speaking migrants.

I intend to apply for a PhD in the fall of 2016.

I'd love to share my passion for language with you or your child and look forward to speaking with you soon!

Saludos,

Ryan

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Portuguese

I did two months of field work in Brazil in 2016, and presented my findings in April 2016 at the Brazilian Studies Association Conference at Brown University. I received a scholarship from the Brazilian Studies Association for this project, for which I had to illustrate my language proficiency in Portuguese.

I am currently a university language professor of Spanish.

Knowledgeable and confidence building tutor — Today we learn the pronunciation of vowels and the alphabet, had a short dialog in asking each other our names and how each other was and saying good day, evening and night. We touched on formal and informal. The lesson was a mix of lecture and lots practice. Ryan was well prepared. I am looking forward to learning more! ...
