About Sharon

I have lived my life among the peoples of the world, first as a child growing up in India and later as an English as a Second Language teacher in eastern China first and later in Lhasa, Tibet, China. I myself speak Hindi, Chinese, and Tibetan. As a result, I'm a sympathetic teacher of my own language, English. I understand the struggles and trials that both native and non-native speakers of English face. I have an excellent understanding of English grammar and sentence structure and love to lead students into fluent, practical English usage. I have also taught both TOEFL, IELTS, and GMAT classes to help my students in China prepare for study abroad.
