I came from Taiwan and I am an current student studying physical therapy here in Pitt. Since I was going to practice clinically in the near future, I really needed someone to help me on my oral English. Sara was my first English tutor here in the States, and what she did during our tutoring session was really helpful. She was so patient and attentive that I always had a great time on learning English with her. She gave me a lot of good advices on my speaking regarding my pronunciation, grammar, or some good words I could use to be more like a native speaker. In addition, I did have some financial problem so I couldn’t spend too much on my tutoring, but how she charged was totally reasonable for someone studying abroad. If you are seeking for a good English tutor, especially for someone from Taiwan or China, I think she will be a good tutor for you. She is capable of speaking Mandarin Chinese, so once you find any question that you don’t know how to translate, feel free to speak Chinese with her to express your mind completely. And you'll find out her Chinese is really good. To sum up, Sara is a really good tutor for someone who wants to improve his/her English~ =)
