Little Seal English, &
English on the Road

Welcome to My ClassroomMy name is Ronan and I want to teach you English.


This website is designed to help you take your English to the next level and help you sound like YOU in English! I offer a wide variety of ways to learn English, from podcasting and transcripts, supplementary learning activities, to group and one-to-one classes. I’m sure there is something here to help you break the English language plateau that will guide you to take control of your English language learning journey.

So, take a look around, check my social media for quick lessons, and don’t be afraid to contact me with any questions.

Thanks for stopping by and you best check back soon because just like your English, this website is always evolving!


Take care,


English on the Road

The Podcast What is it?

Level: Upper intermediate - Fluent. Topics: Anything and everything. This is real, authentic, unplanned, high level, fun English!

The podcast is completely free, and right now I'm working on a LOT of additional content and learning resources for my up-and-coming subscription service, so be sure to check back, or sign up to my newsletter.

Online Lessons How does this work anyway?

Technology is awesome, isn't it? I use ZOOM for my online classes, and sometimes WhatsApp to communicate with my students between lessons. To take part in the lessons you'll need a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or a computer. You'll also need a stable internet connection.

I don't work weekends - that's usually when I'm cooking up some mean content for you, or hanging out in the mountains drinking coffee. My hours are Monday - Friday, 6am - 10pm , Pacific Daylight Time (UTC -7 hours).

Choose what type of class you are interested in, I offer a few different types. Take a look below and the details are there. I always recommend a 30 minute strategy session to get started. This is a great opportunity for us to meet and figure out your language learning goals. The strategy session is also used to create a personal learning plan for you!

All classes are sold in 5 or 10 hour bunches. Make your choice and then shoot me an email with your schedule. Keep in mind that when you book, you book in 5 or 10 week blocks. So if you choose Tuesday at 5pm, then your lesson will be Tuesdays at 5pm for the next 5 weeks.

Watch your inbox. I'll get back to you with available times and to arrange an initial consultation with you.

Once we've ironed out all the details, please don't forget to actually show up to class. That's the most important part.
