My wife learned English speaking with required accent from Sharon. She is very nice and very good in teaching. She has got multiple techniques which she tried with my wife to learn and understand English effectively.
Now my wife got more confidence to speak English.
Thanks to Sharon.
Sharon has been the greatest ESL teacher I have ever had. She is very professional, and cares about her student’s success. Sharon is also very well organized with every lesson; it’s very easy to understand everything she explains. She has the ability to transform hard concepts into easy ones. She is very friendly and knowledgeable person. I really had a great experience improving my English skills with her, especially my writing skills. I highly recommend her because she will find the right way to help you reach your goals to improve your English.
Sharon was a wonderful tutor for our daughter who is starting the 2nd grade. My daughter struggles with reading, and gets frustrated easily. My daughter had 6 sessions with her that were designed to get her ready for the 2nd grade. During these 6 sessions she progressed rapidly and now enjoys reading. I am very grateful for Sharon for taking the time to work with my daughter and for finding creative and fun games that made reading fun.
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.
