Perfect! Shagun Is clearly very knowledgeable about English and has been very clear when explaining concepts and definitions. She teaches with enthusiasm, making it fun and easy to learn. My experience has been great.

SHAGUN's response

Agrim is a self-motivated learner. He is well aware of what his strengths and gray areas are. It was a delight to teach him as I could see him trying to learn and assimilate it to the exercises. I hope he will accomplish all that he aspires to.
