** Not currently accepting new students as I am fully booked most weeks. If you are looking for lessons, please send me a message** I earned my teaching certificate in 2014 and started my online tutoring business in 2015 while I was travelling. I now have over 5 years of teaching experience with both English and Irish. After a short tutoring break, I'm back! In my free time, I enjoy creating art, going on adventures with my children, and learning about the local history.

Shona was warm, friendly, and encouraging. I enjoyed my Irish lesson and feel confident that I can learn the language with her help. It was my first lesson and she set me at ease and kept me interested for the whole lesson and motivated me to practice before the next lesson.

I really, really enjoy my conversations as Gaeilge with Shona. She is very patient and kind when I am struggling to put a sentence together. I feel very comfortable with her. She is also smart and interesting and funny. And we stick to Irish the whole class. I highly recommend her.

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.
