Shannon D 講師のプロフィール
Hello everyone, my name is Shannon!
I'm a musician and English tutor who loves to see my students grow and achieve their goals. When I was growing up, my experience learning guitar in a private studio showed me the power of passionate teaching. Now that I am a private instructor myself, I aim to bring that passion to my own lessons every day.
My love of guitar led me to pursue music in university. I completed my Bachelor of Music degree from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, in June of 2015. Throughout this degree, I took many courses in music theory, music history, classical guitar performance, and psychology. I also completed many English literature courses. I have always enjoyed literature, and I believe that being able to express yourself through words will help you become successful in all areas of life. As an English instructor, I aim to give you the confidence to both speak and write English on a regular basis. Throughout my degree, I tutored English to elementary students through a literacy program called "Read for Fun." I was also given the opportunity to work with elementary, middle, and high school students through education placements I completed in my music education courses.
The following year, I enrolled in my Master of Arts program at the University of Toronto. Throughout this program, I learned about the relationship between music and human health. The courses taught me the ways in which music can be used as a therapeutic tool, as well as the importance of musicians' health. As a private music instructor, I prioritize the health of my students by teaching proper posture and breathing techniques that can calm you down before a performance.
Not only can you expect to learn posture and breathing techniques in my music lessons, you can also expect flexibility in all of my lessons. I'm a strong supporter of intrinsic motivation. This is why I want you to tell me your personal goals, and I'll help you achieve them through learning English, music, or both. You'll be able to enrol in my lessons right away, and I'll adjust the content to suit your needs as a learner. Additionally, I offer lessons suitable for all ages and types of learners, meaning anyone can sign up.
If you think my teaching style is a good fit for your personality, feel free to sign up for one of my lessons! When working with me, you should expect to feel challenged, but not overwhelmed. Most importantly, you'll have fun and feel accomplished after we've completed our lessons. Your knowledge will be more rich than ever before, and you'll be sure to develop an even greater love for learning.
