As a friend, I'd like to keep the contact - 'A' Level - or writing a book/assignment, etc
Liam kept on a straight line, to get there in the end.
I'm so pleased he got there!
Perhaps train the dog?
(I liked the dog - mischievous - under the table -
an independent mind - which I know Alice will be!)
And most importantly the children(F13,M16) like him.
Thanks Mike for all of the help you have given us, Rich and Mark.
Thank you Mike.
Thanks for the pleasure of teaching your son, under maximum collaborative circumstances!
Mike Has huge experience in teaching. Omar enjoyed his lessons very much, though I could not see any significant improvement in Omar's school work. I think Mike's ideal strength is in general English, not as much exam focused . I wish him good luck
Mike's passion for English language is infectious!
