Eva Kertesz helped me to prepare for the French GCSE exam. She helped me a lot to successfully sit the exam. Owing to her knowledge and expertise in teaching I got an A at my exam. She has a thorough knowledge of the GCSE exam. she helped me a lot especially with grammar and ortograph which were my weak points. I can recommend her work to anybody who needs to study French.
To a special teacher,

Tahnks for your friendship, love and support. Don't ever change. you're a wonderful person.
