Introduction:

My specialities are writing, grammar and fun and interesting conversation!

Hello! My name is Shannon. I'm from the U.S. and have been teaching English for about 10 years. I've taught in Mexico, Korea, Japan, Brazil and more! I love helping students to achieve confidence, fluency and accuracy in English and I really enjoy explaining grammar in new ways that help students understand better! One of my favorite parts of teaching is listening to my students who have so many interesting things to teach me, too! I hope to meet you soon!

Teaching Specialty:

Learning English through discussion is one of my favorite strategies (both when I'm a student and when I'm a teacher). Talking about different topics introduces loads of new vocabulary and helps improve fluency skills!

Business English Basics › General

I have taught English in many companies to people of all different levels. I can help company employees improve their overall English related to whatever their field is.

Topics › News Articles

I love teaching through News Articles. They are practical and students can practice pronunciation, increase vocabulary and enjoy some free talk about the new, interesting topics!

Test Prep › TOEIC

I teach TOEIC classes and have found a variety of strategies to help my students perform better on their exams.

Writing › Email Writing

Emails are a very practical tool and use a specific set of language. I am good at helping students keep their emails concise and accurate--a very helpful tool in the business world today!
