Senior Business and Accounting Tutor
Hi! My name is Shawn Matts. I am an experienced, Ontario Certified and TESOL Certified Teacher with over 6 years of teaching experience in both Canada and South Korea. During this time, I have had the pleasure of teaching a wide range of age groups from children as young as 5 years old to adults in their forties, and every age in between.
Currently, I am a Business Management Instructor at King George International College in Toronto, Canada where I teach College level business courses to international students from around the world. The courses I specialize in include: Economics, Managerial Accounting, Communications, Business Management, Marketing, and Business Law. Aside from my role as a Business Management Instructor, I am also responsible for helping students secure co-op placements by providing resume and cover letter instruction, interview and professionalism counselling, and job search assistance and support.
In addition to my experience teaching college level business courses, I have also had the opportunity to teach English in Seoul, South Korea for three years. During this time, I taught students in the Primary, Junior, Intermediate, and Secondary divisions. The curriculum focused on several areas of Language Arts including Reading, Writing, Media Literacy, and Oral Communication. I am a trained SSAT coach and enjoy guiding students in this test-taking process. Working with such a wide range of students required me to frequently adapt my teaching style and methodology to suit various ages, levels, and abilities.
I received my Bachelor of Education from Lakehead University specializing in the Primary and Junior divisions, and I hold Additional Qualifications in Special Education, ESL, and the Intermediate division.
I am a very passionate teacher who genuinely cares about the well-being of his students. My various teaching experiences have given me the ability to adapt and cater to all my students’ needs and learning styles. Furthermore, I am patient, enthusiastic, and committed to ensuring student learning, growth, and development.
When I am not pursuing my passion for teaching, I enjoy participating in athletics. I am an avid runner and sports enthusiast. I am also deeply passionate about traveling and have spent extensive time traveling in both Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, England, Czech Republic, Switzerland)and Asia (Japan, India, Nepal, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, South Korea).
I look forward to working together!
