My name is Ryan, and I’m a 24 year old Southern California native. In 2011 I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Anthropology from UC Santa Barbara. I love music, traveling and working with people of all ages. Last year I taught English and studied Chinese in Taipei, Taiwan. I lived in the city center, near the famous building, Taipei 101. I had an excellent and adventurous time learning a new language, experiencing a new culture and meeting so many new and wonderful people.

In my spare time, I enjoy listening to records, surfing beside Santa Monica pier and going out to try new and delicious restaurants in Los Angeles. Watching funny YouTube videos is a guilty pleasure of mine which has consumed hours upon hours of my life.

During my time at EC I have tried to achieve a positive and interactive learning environment, whereupon my classes are continuously speaking, reading, writing and learning. I believe in an encouraging and fun learning environment where students are able to enjoy the experience of learning, rather than solely doing exercises from a book.

I hope to stay at EC and further explore the amazing city that is Los Angeles and am looking forward to an exciting future in the months to come. I am a very positive and open person, so if you see me walking by you in the hallway, don’t hesitate to say “Hello!”
