45 Alto lessons
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.

Upon meeting him I saw he had confidence in the material as well as familiarity with the pressure in Palo Alto schools. He is easy to communicate with, ask questions from and also receive college advice from. Over the course of a few months I saw a huge turn around in my results and my teacher was thrilled. My testing average rose by 20% and I my overall grade rose by a letter. Most importantly, I felt an appreciation for the subject that I had deemed beyond my ability.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
