Big shout out to my fantastic teacher Tamara, who has massively increased my confidence and enthusiasm to learn.
We are both really enjoying our lessons with Tamara. We both think she is a lovely person and an outstanding teacher for foreign students of Spanish. Early days as you say but she could be one of our favourite teachers, and we have had a lot!
The GCSE classes are invaluable to me and Tamara is a superb teacher. Best Regards, Eamonn M
