Great tutor who provides everything you need

Tanya is a great tutor. She has lots of experience and knows what the student needs. She always tries to be helpful to the student and the lessons are great fun. She is very reliable and returns email or text messages very promptly. My lessons with her are focused on conversational English and it's so much fun to talk with her.
