Bryan Caranto – ESL Teacher
Hi, my name is Bryan and I’m from the Philippines. I grew up with a family of 6, with three younger siblings — all girls. When I was young, I was quite infamous in the family as the boy who was always outside.
I literally went out almost every day and met different people from different backgrounds –both the poor and the rich. I enjoyed it when I met someone new and got to spend time with them, just hanging out and talking about things, knowing that I would always leave them better than I found them.
There was something about my curiosity of meeting people and getting to know them that I couldn’t help but do this every day – even when both my parents decided against it. Little did I know, this passion was going to lead me to one of the most important things in my life and in business—providing value.
Sometime during my early twenties, my family went through a financial crisis. This led me to decide whether I’d go to university to pursue my studies or look for a job. And I did the latter.
I applied for a position at multiple BPO companies, but I failed because of my English. This was one of the first biggest challenges in my life that are not school-related. I had to learn English quickly so I could get a job. And it was very difficult since I didn’t have money to go to school and learn. However, after a few months, I managed to succeed. I knew this because I applied for a job again and passed interviews and got a job offer. It was a life-changing experience.
At the time, I thought that it was impossible to become fluent in English and get a job in a BPO company. Now, everything is different. Most of my limiting beliefs are gone. I now teach English and help non-native English speakers get the results they want.
I created my own teaching business and have helped hundreds of learners improve their English through my private classes, continuous support, and by building a healthy relationship with them – becoming the mentor that I never had myself.
One of the biggest problems in my teaching business wasn’t the skill and the product. No, I had the skill in teaching and I had great service. My main problem was looking for students and knowing where to find them.
This led me to do a lot of different and exciting things like market research, content creation, engaging with potential customers, and last but not the least, creating value.
My business taught me a lot. Aside from the skills of teaching, using different social media platforms, principles of business, etc. it also taught me one of the most important things in business: presence.
It taught me that it doesn’t matter if you’re the best at cooking, or you have the cure for cancer. If no one knows about your services or products, you do not exist. And therefore, will not be able to help others.
This is the reason why I decided to work as a social media manager. I want to not only take the burden off of my clients’ shoulders by helping them with finishing tasks they don’t need to do so they can focus more on the growing their business, but also help them build presence — specifically online presence.
I used to have problems with my spoken English but I found a way to solve them. Now I help people solve their English-speaking problems and get the results that they want. I used to have problems in my business looking for clients but I found a way to solve them.
And now, it’s time to solve your problems too. You don’t have to do this alone, let me help you. Together we will get you the results that you want.
I’m so excited and I’m looking forward to working with you. Thank you for reading.
See you soon!
