Shawn C. Tutor Profile
My name is Shawn! I am an American, but I live in Japan! I am an Assistant English Teacher for a junior-high school within the Yokohama area. So far, I have been teaching for over a year. Before coming to Japan, I have taught online for six months. Teaching junior-high school students is interesting, but I had fun teaching people of different ages online.
- Currently, I am an Assistant English Teacher for junior-high school level students in the Yokohama area.
- I have a Bachelor's Degree of Arts in English.
- I have a 120-hour certificate in TEFL from the International TEFL and TESOL Training program.
- In the United States, I have volunteered in observing and teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) classes in the states of Tennessee and Kentucky.
As an conversation-based teacher/tutor, I like talk about different topics with students, such as food, travel, sports, and social issues. Through conversation, I focus on:
- Verbal/Written errors
Living and teaching in Japan has made me discover many different interests. For example, I love Japanese food, and I can't get enough of it! There are different places in Japan that I have yet to visit, such as Osaka, Kyoto, Hokkaido, and many others. I hope to visit each place in the future! Finally, I am interested in the language! Currently, I'm studying Japanese. I hope that I can use what I learn to make new friends, and help students at the same time!
In the classroom, I am very serious about my work, but I am an easy-going person. I like to be friendly and have fun! Most importantly, I believe in treating others with respect.
