I highly recommend ZetM as she is a highly qualified teacher in the subject area. She is capable of teaching anyone to be successful. ZetM is knowledgeable, professional, patient and super-skilled.
Teaching for ZetM is not a job, it is a calling. She is the most passionate teacher I know. I am blessed to have passed through her hands when she took me for both English Language and Literature in English from 2011 to 2014. For me to be able to legibly on paper, to comprehend and communicate effectively and to speak eloquently in front of an audience in the English language, all the credit goes to ZetM. She has the heart of a servant and is a nurturer. Her track record speaks for itself. Everywhere she has been, she has left a precedence of EXCELLENCE, not only in her academic results, but also in the hearts and minds of her former students. We radiate the excellence instilled in us by ZetM. I highly, strongly recommend ZetM.
I have known ZetM my whole life. She was my English and Literature teacher for 4 years in High School. She is an excellent teacher, who has her students needs at heart. The reason she teaches is to see her students succeed and do well in life. She is a great teacher and writer. She teaches you starting from the basics and lays a strong foundation for her students to do well in English and in life. She has taught English for over 20 years, and has experience teaching students from various backgrounds.
