I studied both neuroscience and music at a liberal arts college (graduating magna cum laude), and I went on to get my master's in TESOL (teaching English as a second language). I have a voracious appetite for learning and I enjoy fostering that same natural curiosity in the students that I tutor.

Because I have a love for learning and sharing interesting information, I frequently led study groups, both large and small for my classes in college - including English, psychology, and neuroscien...

Sharon was beyond helpful and made learning really fun with her bubbly personality. I can?t thank her enough. If I ever need psychology help in the future I will definitely come back to her.

I have been struggling on general chemistry since the class has started in august. I had not understood most of the chapters that my professor had gone over with us. I was able to get in contact with Sharon and she was able to explain all the information, that we had gone over in class, within a two hour time period. She not only answered any of my questions but she took notes on a shared doc which allowed for me to have a copy of any information we went over. She went over each concept until she knew I understood. I never felt rushed or overwhelmed as I had in my class. I highly recommend Sharon as now I am not only able study organized information but I am able to understand it.

Sarah doesn't know what to expect. She has a lot of information to digest in a relatively short time. Sharon seems to have a plan and is very organized with her approach.

Sharon has been tutoring my daughter for over a year now. She is a talented tutor that connects well with my daughter. As a bonus, Sharon is well versed in several high school topics such as biology, chemistry, english and history. My daughter really enjoys the time she spends with Sharon.

Sharon is very patient with my son of 13. She makes each session fun and exciting. With that being said, she keeps my son focused and on track. She's a great find.

Sharon went over some math basics to refresh my skills and then we started getting into Geometry. Very patient!
- Karen S. from Monrovia, CA
She does more than proof-reading. Sharon took the time to suggest better flow, logic and content. Good turn around time. Attention to details

Sharon helps my son with comprehending his algebra assignments by breaking down the problems into simple to understand steps, leading him to the correct solution. We appreciate her friendly demeanor and superb patience with our son as he works with her to fill the gaps in his knowledge left by his high school teacher.
- Pat J. from Temple City, CA
Great Lesson! Sharon is a multi-talented young woman and has many gifts and talents to offer. She has a unique quality about her that is captivating. Since working with my son, who is in the eight grade, I have witnessed him gain confidence in subjects that were once overwhelming for him. His test scores have improved and he moves with a little more momentum. I especially appreciate her patience and creativity when teaching new concepts or subject matter. Sharon is very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm for learning is contagious! Sharon's style of teaching is effective and direct. I believe my son is becoming more self directed and will continue to see success through Sharon's teaching methods.
- Melinda Z. from Sierra Madre, CA
Sharon has been great working with my daughter. She makes it an enjoyable experience and provides simple explanations on how to remember and understand subject concepts. She has helped with a variety of subjects - Spanish, Chemistry and History. She provides a full range of understanding the lesson plan that makes my daughter feel good about her preparedness for her upcoming class assignments and/or tests.

I have learned a lot from Sharon to improve my comprehensive English skills. She is patient and talented at tutoring. She knows how to help people gain confidence in learning English. I would like to keep on working with her and highly recommend her to anyone who needs a helpful tutor.
- Brian H. from Arcadia, CA
I asked Sharon to proofread my personal history statement for a graduate program. She was very helpful. She offered me great tips and suggestions to improve my statement. She was also very responsive when I emailed or called her. I am very happy with my improved statement. I will definitely ask her again in the future.
- Susan K. from Arcadia, CA
Sharon is so very kind, patient and committed to her students. My son was recently diagnosed with ADHD, has a processing disorder and also recently had a minor head concussion that limited his ability to focus to top things off! Sharon sat with him for countless hours, sometimes giving up her days off for him! She asked very strategic questions that got him to cut through his confusing thought processes. My son was able to get his thoughts organized, able to write logically and creatively for his 10th grade English honors summer homework. They worked through three books and 9 journals in one month! I know it would have been impossible for my son to get this done by himself. My son also goes to a tutoring center in our area, but they were not able to provide him with the individual attention or effective strategies Sharon was able to! Sharon is very respectful and encouraging, using positive praise and cheering them on in such a nice way. Thank you soooo much! It was so much less stress for me! We will be continuing with Sharon the rest of this school year!

She was great my 8 year old loved her and she made him very comfortable and improved each week. She made each lesson fun for him and excited when he figured out a word he didn't know.

I would not describe my son as the type who struggles at school. However, it is frustrating to see a final semester grade of 89% knowing that extra 1% plays a very important role in his overall GPA and with college admission. I decided to get my son a tutor to help him get over the "B" hill. Sharon was exactly what we were looking for, not only was she knowledgeable tutoring Biology, my son really appreciated her patience and making the subject more fun and interesting to learn. I also really appreciated the fact that Sharon is willing to work with our schedule. There were times where a last minute school activity did not allow us to keep our previously scheduled time, upon receiving my text Sharon contacted some of her other students and made the switch to allow my son to do both. A "BIG THANK YOU" Sharon from my son and I for helping him get an A in Biology this semester. I will definitely recommend Sharon to anyone who needs tutoring that is covered by her subject area.
- Jeff W. from Arcadia, CA
Sharon was very creative at teaching my sons how to improve in their study habits and projects. She was consistent, always on time, supportive, and positive. My sons responded very well to her techniques. In addition, she stayed on top of their projects and classes. We were very pleased with her.
- Sharoon P. from Duarte, CA
Sharon is an excellent tutor and has guided me in two of my writing classes. She has helped me in the brainstorming process, conceptualizing the prompts, developing and organizing my ideas, editing my paper, and helped me understand the importance of good note taking for research papers. Sharon has been punctual to all our meetings and I appreciate that she was able to accommodate her normal tutoring hours to a time more convenient for me. Sharon's teaches with such patience and enthusiasm I always walk out of the room more relieved than when I first walked in.
