Sharon Kim

I am an M.A. student in Applied Linguistics and ESL. I have a strong passion for traveling and learning/teaching languages. I have lived and worked in a few different countries including Australia and Thailand, and have traveled to several others including Japan, Brazil, and Canada. I have learned a few different languages and enjoyed every bit of it. I enjoy sharing my experiences with my students and give practical advice to them. I have tutored a lot of students, from basic conversational English to advanced business English and TOEFL. Outside of work and study, I love swing dancing and indoor rock climbing! I tutor Mondays from 1:00-3:30, host I.C.E. with Sara and Daphne, and write the IEP Newsletter. I am very excited about tutoring and working with IEP students and can’t wait to meet them!!
