Sobre mí: Después de graduarme de las carreras de Historia y Derecho en Inglaterra, pude aplicar las habilidades desarrolladas en educación en el Ecuador. Después de trabajar mucho y habiendo logrado reconocimientos tanto en EPN como en Education First tuve la oportunidad de formarme en Perú con Cambridge Exams. Lideré programas educativos para varias escuelas y universidades. Mis relaciones con múltiples editoras prestigiosas como Cambridge University Press, Oxford University press y National Geographic, me dieron una comprensión completa del proceso educativo, para los niños. Así aprendí a valorar mucho el poder dar a los estudiantes los recursos que necesitan para hablar inglés eficientemente.
Llegué al Colegio La Condamine en el mes de Abril del 2021 y estoy muy feliz de formar parte de uno de los mejores Colegio del país.

Cailan BEVEL – Teacher

I am thrilled to be here teaching at La Condamine. I come from Alabama, in the USA. I graduated from University of Alabama in Birmingham with a major in International Studies and Spanish. While at University I volunteered at the language exchange program to help foreign students integrate into the college community and support their language acquisition. After graduating I began to teach on a weekly basis within a local language-learning center near my hometown. During that time, I came to discover the great need for English-learning opportunities for Latin American families living all over the area. It was a pleasure to work with the families, many with young kids, to help improve their English as they faced the challenges of integration into their new homes and schools. I also have experience at a language school where I taught English and Spanish to students ranging from children to adults.
I am devoted to teaching children and I enjoy teaching young learners about English and American Culture. Now that I find myself in Ecuador, I will continue to set the performance standard high for my students. I will encourage them to stay motivated and enjoy the learning process with an array of creative learning opportunities. 
It is a pleasure to be here!

Jeffrey Buelterman – Teacher

Years Teaching: 13

Qualifications: MA,TESOL/Applied Linguistics, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK; BFA, Theatre, DePaul University, Chicago, USA; TESOL Certification, American TESOL Institute, Chiang Mai, Thailand; Yoga Certification, Yoga Vidya Gurukul, Nashik, India, 2007

About me: I began my teaching career as a volunteer in Bagamoyo, Tanzania where I taught English to a class of more than 60 rambunctious 5-8 year-olds at Mburuku Primary School. In that classroom, I witnessed the joy and wonderment of children in the process of discovering, learning, and playing. Those wonderful kids made me fall in love with teaching. Since that time in late 2007, I have acquired a TESOL certification from the American TESOL Institute (2009) and a Master’s in TESOL and Applied Linguistics, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK (2020). I also hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in theatre, which greatly informs and supports my work in the classroom, as I am a teacher who is playful and always ready to improvise and have fun (serious, learning fun, that is). It is my belief that learning happens best during times of play and movement, and I am thrilled to hold my position as “sports teacher” at La Condamine, and therefore utilize games, physicality, and play to support your child’s learning experiences.

I am incredibly excited to have joined the International Program at La Condamine. My first impression of this esteemed school has outshone those of the many schools I have worked at throughout the years in places such as South Korea, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Oman, China, and Vietnam. At La Condamine, there is a palpable sense of joy emanating from both the students and the staff. There is also a feeling of tremendous support for students and families, as well as for teachers. I am looking forward to being a part of your child’s development and to being a catalyst to establish your child’s passion for learning and discovering new and exciting things for years to come.

Hobbies: hopping on and off planes and seeing the world; trying out new recipes at home; checking out new restaurants; doing yoga; working out at the gym (not so much during Covid, however); going to the theatre; watching films; reading; and of course, scrolling through my phone


The Movement, Fun, and English class is an excellent opportunity for students to become actively involved with each other in team games, to develop coordination and motor skills, and to practice spontaneously producing English. In this class, we take the grammar and vocabulary from the pages of the texts in their foundation classes and put them into play! Research has shown that language use in physically engaging activities leads to quicker acquisition and longer retention. Plus, we have a lot of fun!


Con el fin de acompañar el proceso de aprendizaje, estaremos usando los libros del Cambridge American English de las series ‘Super minds‘.
Estos libros se enfocan sobre un Inglés práctico y refuerza las 4 habilidades. Estas habilidades ayudarán a los estudiantes a pasar los exámenes internacionales.



Estamos utilizando también la plataforma de lectura MYON de Santillana.
Queremos fomentar una cultura de la lectura del Inglés desde muy joven. Con miles de libros disponibles al alcance del dedo, leer se ha convertido en una parte integral del proceso de aprendizaje del Inglés.



Nuestro objetivo para los estudiantes, es que consigan cada 2 años un Michigan Assessment certificate. Estos certificados son aceptados por parte de varias Universidades extranjeras y pondrán a los estudiantes en un camino si desean estudiar en el extranjero.



For the new students entering the section from CE1 and upwards, there is an entrance exam.

Please find below the subjects to study.
