About Shawn

Dear Learners,

I am currently an English as a Second Language teacher at a school in Columbia Heights and have taught various subjects (including Writing and Composition, Public Speaking, and Science), for nearly a decade. My love for tutoring and teaching stems from my love of traveling. I have lived and taught in 4 countries, teaching both Adults and K-12.

My teaching style can best be described as learner-centered - I focus on your goals and needs. After that I customize a lesson plan just for you using the latest resources, research and technology in the field. As a current full-time teacher and the Assistant Director of Education of my school, I constantly strive to refine my teaching methods. I hold an undergraduate degree from an elite institution in Maine and a graduate degree and licensure in education. I never take more than 2-3 students at a time so I can focus my attention on you and adopt a customized approach.
All the best in your learning!
Thank you for considering me for your learning needs.

I enjoy working with both adults and children and am familiar with the various needs and learning styles across age groups. I have helped Embassy Staff prepare presentations and write reports, worked with children and parents on Common Core standards, and every year I love helping high schoolers write essays to apply for college. I look forward to speaking with you more on your specific learning goals.

Language acquisition can be hard but it can also be fun and extremely rewarding. I am always available for advice, regardless of whether we are in session or not. All the best!

Shawn
