About Us

Welcome to Sharpe English:  Rob Sharpe


It’s important, when putting your trust in someone, that you know who they are.   Too many websites offer services that are impersonal.  You do not know who is proof reading your work, or exactly what your instructor’s qualifications are.  Here is a chance to learn about us before you take the next step!

Although Sharpe English uses resources and experts from all over our global teaching community, it is essentially a company owned by Rob Sharpe.
