Sharon is incredible! She combines a deep understanding of language with her rich experience in real business settings, and creates an immersive learning environment for her students. I had the privilege to learn from Sharon last year, she was instrumental in helping me not only become a more polished and sophisticated business communicator, but also get into Berkeley's MBA program by coaching me on my application essay and interview.
Sharon is an excellent ESL tutor. She processed constructive criticism well and is always willing to go the extra mile to order to satisfy her clients. She is also extremely flexible in adapting to and applying "customized" learning plans for the clients. She has excellent written and verbal communication skills and is extremely organized. I enjoyed working with her so I highly recommend her.
Sharon is a great tutor.
She writes down what a student says and corrects pronunciation and expression.
More than all, she is always kind and considerate.
Sharon is a great editor for my business school papers. She will proofread or spend more time to explain; you can let her know if you'd like more assistance. She is clear on pricing and time estimates, so there are no surprises.
Sharon is a highly committed and mentally flexible English tutor: I enjoyed our vivid 1:1 lessons in Mountain View very much. She focuses on a broad spectrum of vocabularies, grammar, pronunciation and written English. I tremendously improved my English knowledge in a short period of time. In addition we had fun and discussed daily news. I highly recommend Sharon as your English tutor!
Sharon is a great tutor. When I have experienced a shortage of skilled expression and conversation, she has satisfied my demand that was not met by others. She writes down what a student says and corrects pronunciation and expression. More than all, she is always kind and considerate.
I hired Sharon as an English tutor for one of our employees who just recently moved here from Russia. She's been working with him for about 5 months now, and the results have been great! Our employee really enjoys and appreciates the lessons, and his level of English has improved dramatically since working with her, which is crucial for his success in our collaborative work environment. I (and he) would highly recommend Sharon for private tutoring, either personal or corporate!
I had two classes with Sharon to get prepared for my job interviews (business analyst positions). We went through the basic self-introduction and some other common behavioral questions. She was very helpful and patient. She corrected my grammar mistakes and gave me some good feedback from a interviewer's perspective who has business background. The two classes I had with Sharon made me more confident in the actual interviews and helped me to get the final offer.
Sharon is a very good teacher! She is really very patient and persistent with her students. I knew absolutely nothing about English when I started having classes with her, but in only 5 months she managed to help me communicate with others more effectively and understand a lot of English. Our classes had a little bit of everything: conversation, grammar and writing.
I am from Brazil and lived in Palo Alto for 7 months. During that time, I had classes with other English teachers sometimes, but I can say without a shadow of doubt that Sharon was the best teacher I ever had. If you really want to learn English, I recommend having lessons with her. I can say that she insisted until I really learned. I intend to go back to Palo Alto for another period of time and I will have classes with her, for sure.
If you are International students who is studying English as a second language, I recommend Sharon as a tutor. She has so much experience to teach students and she always tried to correct wrong part of your English. Through the tutoring with Sharon, my English level progressed a lot!
The parents who live in a non-US country like me would always want kids to become fluent English speakers, in particular, when visiting US. My family had a chance to stay in US for a month (last Jan, 2014) and I really wanted to give my kids great opportunities of learning English from a great tutor.
It's really fortunate to have Sharon as an English tutor for my kids. My kids took three classes every week and it was the first time for me to see that my kids love doing homework voluntarily! I don't know what magic sauce Sharon used in her class, but my kids really loved learning from Sharon. A really good thing is that they become not shy when speaking in English and are very well motivated in learning it. They started understanding why they need to learn English. Furthermore, when my family came back to Korea, my daughter took an English examination, then surprisingly she got the highest score in the class. Isn't it amazing?
I really thank Sharon for getting my kids motivated. I'm going to bring my kids to US this summer and strongly believe that Sharon and my kids could have a great time again!
I took more than 10 lessons with Sharon and she helped me to find out my weak spots in my English. She provided good ways to improve it. I got what I wanted. Thank you Sharon.
Sharon is the best English tutor I've ever met in my life. I have been studying English speaking with her for a year. She knows exactly what students need to improve, and teaches them in the very efficient way. As she always respects students' opinion, students can decide which part of English language to focus on, and she is perfectly capable of teaching English Speaking, Writing, Listening, and Reading. I am 100 % sure that you can get significant improvement on your English with her.
I've gotten English lessons with Sharon about for a year. I've been taking 1.5hr lesson every week, but I've always felt that time passed so fast. Talking with her is really interesting and helpful to learn English. She corrects my grammar and pronunciation, and lets me know what is the best expressions for my idea. I really appreciate that she teaches me so well and she has been a good friend of mine. Sharon, have a good holiday!!
Sharon helped me with my upcoming job interview preparation. She was very patient, effective, and professional. She helped me specifically on my pitch, many technical questions, and she dug into my accomplishments which can maximize the job position expectation. I really think the preparation was helpful for my interview. Due to her long time HR working experience, I have to say she is an ideal tutor for someone who want to go into business world or need further development on their professional English language skills.
I took English lessons from her to improve the communication skills in a professional environment. So the goal was not very specific and it would have been unclear what and how to teach me. However she would figure out soon how to go about it. She has been very attentive during the sessions and I got good feedback from her on my weaknesses and what to do to communicate better. She is very effective and pointed and I would recommend her to anyone who considers improving their English skills.
Sharon was a great tutor. She was very resourceful, and was able to help me stay focus and complete all the work I needed to finish. Her business savvy and experienced input was apparent in her informed tutoring sessions. She definitely will help you achieve the results you want. I highly recommend you contact Sharon as you she delivers the results you need. She helped me achieve a difficult career goal. I could have never achieved the excellence in my work, without her help. She is worth every penny.
Sharon and I studied together for almost 4 months, I wish we could continue our lessons. Sharon is the best tutor I have ever studied with. She is really experienced, knowledgeable, caring and effective. During our sessions, we focused on pronunciation and speaking, she really gave me a safe, calm environment for improving my speaking skills. Being able to speak about many things in many different situations with her made our sessions more enjoyable and I never understood how time flew during our lessons, she absolutely made every minute count! I appreciate everything we had done together and absolutely recommend Sharon as a great tutor.
Sharon is a good teacher. She has been able to understand my goals and help me to reach them. I’ve enjoyed the conversation. She’s also a smart listener, taking notes of my mistakes and teaching me how to pronounce, spell and use verbs correctly.
She always writes down on the note what I say and she checks a wrong expression. She checks my pronounce too. Whenever I express English by wrong way, she just fit it and explain to me.
It is must be true that she is obviously very good English teacher.
I cannot express it fully in English.
I've really appreciated learning with Sharon. She cares about your needs and priorities. She listens carefully to you and adapts lessons for you. In the same time, she creates a friendly and encouraging atmosphere, so you're at ease conversing with her.
Her style of teaching English is very sophisticated.
She correct my language mistakes logically for me to understand efficiently. Besides, she has various teaching method for writing, reading, and conversation. If you want to improve your Language skill to certain level, I think she is the best.
I am pleased to recommend Sharon for your consideration as a well-qualified English teacher. When I took her lesson, she gave me appropriate lessons for me. Most English teachers just read a text book or just talk. However, in her lessons, she checked my English level and asked me what I learned, and she gave me her original lessons. Also, she has long experiences as a HR manger and an English teacher. I talked with her many topics other than English. I was very lucky! I am really satisfied with her lessons.
