One Response

  1. Dear Mr Son Quam Phang,

    I wonder whether I could ask for your help. I am a language teacher at Ellesmere College, in North Shropshire. We have recently accepted a Vietnamese student (17 years old) but our search for a Vietnamese tutor to assist him with his studies of Vietnamese literature has so far proved unsuccessful. Would one of your teachers offering Saturday classes at the MVRCA be able to help? Tutoring would involve a regular weekly or fortnightly meeting with our student here at our college,at a time to be agreed, plus support by e-mail. We are an extremely friendly college and it should be a very rewarding experience.

    I would be very grateful for your reply and any help you can give us in our search for a Vietnamese tutor.

    With best wishes
    Yours sincerely

    Christina Westwood
    MFL Teacher
    Ellesmere College
    Ellesmere, Shropshire
