I just knew there are groups here. anyway, I can only help you through my entries because I am a private Tagalog tutor [ live tutor, face to face]. I do offer tutoring service to those expats who are currently in our country
[ Makati and Taguig Cities, Philippines]. For those who are browsing just read the topics on my entries as they are also the same lessons I use to teach my foreign learners. Maraming salamat at Magandang araw!
