Daniel, 22 lessons with Zsanine

Great tutor and very humble at the same time

Zsanine did a great job tutoring my son. Even my daughter also started liking her lessons after the first one. My son was lagging behind in English reading comprehension and after taking lessons from Zsanine, he was able to get much better. It's no longer an issue for my son. Thank you Zsanine for all your help. You are the best!
