About Me
italki teacher since Apr 15, 2014
I am a native English speaker from Ireland. I have been teaching both adults and children since 2014. I’m engaging and energetic and I love to teach English, as well as my second language, Irish. Being brought up in Ireland means I have good insight into Irish culture, which is perfect for all you foghlaimeoirí Gaeilge! I am a professional English teacher and can teach you a range of quality skills in both informal and formal English. **I am currently not teaching due to maternity leave. Thank you**

What can I say? The most kind hearted and dedicated teacher I know. Shona is always prepared for class, punctual, and ready to adjust the lessons whenever I was falling behind, always encouraging. I love learning to speak Irish from Shona.

Shona's class was fun and dynamic, with a range of pictures, music and dialogue to support the lesson. She was also caring and attentive to our personal needs.

All conversation today. I'm always amazed by Shona's ability to keep an interesting conversation going even with someone as boring as myself. Also, she gives just the right amount of correct -- not too much but picking up on key issues that provide the most bang for buck in terms of improving my communication skills. Although we didn't do grammar in this session, she's given me lots of targeted instruction that's proven very useful. The readings we sometimes do were useful too. Since many of these came from the state exam, this also served as a bit of test prep (though it's unlikely I'd ever take an Irish exam). We've had a very good run working together and I'm hoping we can continue this after my summer break. I'd certainly recommend Shona to anyone looking for a language tutor. She's highly skilled, professional, and a very nice person to work with.
