Report: In depth knowledge of iGCSE English. Linda has been in constant contact with my son even outside of lesson time to constantly review his coursework and provide him with helpful tips and further study recommendations. I have no doubt I picked the best tutor for him. Linda tutors many students from my son`s school and is very familiar with the requirements and standards.
