Ryan Soule - IELTS Speaking and Conversation Coach
Are you preparing for an exam or do you want to sound more natural when you speak? Then I want to help you!
I’m a native English speaker and English Language Coach from Australia.
MY MISSION IS TO HELP YOU SPEAK CLEARLY, CONFIDENTLY AND CORRECTLY.
I’ve been teaching English in the classroom and online since 2016 and I have developed a unique way to assess students, make corrections and give constructive feedback so that you can make improvements while having a conversation.
CONVERSATION COACHING sessions are relaxed classes covering many topics so that you have the opportunity to practice as much speaking as possible. During these conversations, I will make corrections to vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation so that you can improve your speaking ability.
EXAM COACHING sessions are focused on exam format, strategies and directed practice. I have Materials that I have developed so that on exam day you feel comfortable and confident in your ability.
I will always be honest and direct with you in my feedback and language assessments, after a class with me, you will know your strengths, weaknesses, your language goal and we will have a plan to improve your English.
I’m an ideal teacher for you if you are an intermediate speaker or above and you feel like you are not improving, you want to sound less like a textbook and more like a person, you are preparing for an exam or you want to develop confidence as an English speaker.
