Megan Shewan

Doha, Qatar


ESL Teacher


I am mostly interested in preparing adult non-native learners of English for the IELTS proficiency test, as well as instructing adult learners at all levels pf proficiency in General English, focusing on the 4 macro skills (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking). I have more than 5 years' active teaching experience in the Gulf region, instructing learners from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds. My special interest is in adopting an explicit approach to teaching the rules and application of English grammar so that learners can develop accuracy as well as fluency in their English proficiency.
