Lindsay Does Languages
"Lindsay Does Languages was born in 2012 as a local company in the heart of little old England offering private language tuition. I taught individuals, then groups, then corporate groups, then school groups, until finally, I found my niche teaching online via Skype. Since then, Lindsay Does Languages has evolved to offering coaching packages and online courses both for language learners and online language tutors."
