About Sharon

Teaching is my first love and I have been doing it for many years. I have taught English to over a thousand people from all over the world. I have experience teaching beginners and advanced language learners. I have had students from embassies, international organizations and graduate schools. I specialize in reading, writing, speaking and listening. I can help with accent reduction and pronunciation. I am also trained in editing, public speaking, and presenting. I look forward to helping you with your problem areas. Whether you are preparing for the TOEFL or focusing on overall improvement, I can help you raise you English proficiency level.

I have a Masters in TESOL (Teaching English as Second Language) from Georgetown University and I have written a TESOL textbook. I enjoy working with people and I find it thrilling to see students reach their potential. Over the years, I have tutored many adults and a few children. I have done professional training, train-the-trainer and public speaking. I have strategies for training in large and small groups including ice breakers and power point presentations. I am a singer and a published poet and I would enjoy helping you to find your creative energy as well.

As we work together, I will give you feedback and strategies for improvement. I will share regular progress reports and we will create an action plan for your future. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Let's get started!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have thirty years experience as a ESL instructor at all levels. I received a Masters in Teaching ESL from Georgetown University. It would be my pleasure to help you meet your English goals.
