italki teacher since Jun 13, 2017
My name is Shannon Rose. I’m a native English speaker from the USA. I live in Maine. I taught English in Wuhan, China for eleven years. Additionally, I worked as the head of foreign affairs at a Chinese primary school, where I trained other foreign teachers. I have a degree in English literature. I teach children and adults.
I enjoy studying languages (Chinese and German), musical theatre, and writing stories.
你好！ 我叫Shannon Rose。我是美国人，所以我的母语当然是英语。我是一位有十二年教学经验的英语老师。我在中国武汉教过六百多个从三岁到十三岁的孩子。我也教过成年人，而且培训过别的外教。我可以帮你或者你提高你的英语口语，语法，还有词汇量。 我自己非常爱学语言。除了英语以外我也会说中文和德语。我很了解你学语言的时候会遇到什么问题。我也了解中国人学英语的情况。我用许多好玩有趣的教学方法，而且给你很多开口说话的机会。我们都知道熟能生巧。找个好老师是第一步。
Me as a Teacher
I’ve taught kindergarten, middle school, and primary school students in China and on Italki. My youngest students are just three years old! I’ve taught over one thousand adult lessons on Italki, to students with a variety of goals and English levels. My biggest asset as a teacher is my extensive experience. I carefully plan personalized lessons for my students. I’m flexible, and I can adjust my teaching style to meet your needs. I love teaching, because it gives me a chance to be creative.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are designed to give you as much speaking time as possible. I give beginners lots of chances to practice the grammar and vocabulary we study. With advanced learners, I focus on introducing new topics and situations, to help you expand the contexts in which you are able to speak English.
My children’s lessons are designed to be fun and encouraging. I have many props, games, songs, puppets, and more! Theatre is a passion of mine, and I use my theatrical skills to create an engaging classroom environment for my young students. We can learn the basics of English, or we can learn about culture, travel, and authentic conversation. Homework available upon request.
My daughter had lessons with Shannon since 2020 and her level of English has drastically improved. She likes her a lot and she learns very fast because Shannon is very efficient, funny and has great teaching skills. She definitely is the best teacher that my daughter has ever had.
