BE HAPPY AND SPEAK ENGLISH 😁
Thanks for checking out my teacher profile. First things first, you can call me Ryan while we're communicating, no need to say "sir", "teacher" or "teacher Ryan"... I'm very relaxed and easy-going. Normally I do regular 45-minute conversation classes but if is there anything special you want to work on we can do that too.
Before a class with me, I will send you a topic for discussion, for example, this week it is: The 21st century has begun. What changes do you think this new century will bring? Sometimes there will be a video or article as well!
My goal is to make you think in English and then communicate in English.
I want you to be a good writer too, so before class, I would like you to write your answer down then I can check your writing and give you feedback on how to improve. After this, we will talk and I will correct you so that you can get better!
This method is called the natural approach and it is very effective, especially if you can already speak some English. I learnt Spanish using a similar method and I plan to learn many more languages by doing this. It will help me improve my communication skills and my teaching skills as well.
Don't worry if you think you have a low level of English, EVERYONE starts somewhere and I will do my best to fix your mistakes and have you speaking confidently quickly!
If you have any questions you can message me and I will answer them quickly, I look forward to seeing you soon!
