The confusion, it hurts

I'm in charge of booking rooms for people who need to use them at specific times. One of the rooms was being used on Fridays from 1:30 - 3:00 for tutoring.

The tutor and the tutee decided to change the lesson to Tuesdays, so I had to change the booking.

The tutor sent me this e-mail:

Subject: Tuesday 11.30-13.00
Body: blah blah blah moving the (lessons) from Friday to Tuesday 10.30-13.00 permanently

So I responded back:

Thank you for letting me know. It’s from 11:30, not 10:30, correct?

Then the tutor responded:

It is 2x 45 min = 2 lessions!

I'm so confused I don't even know how to respond to this. First of all, the subject of her e-mail said 11.30, yet the body of her e-mail said 10.30. Then when she responded back she claimed it WAS supposed to be 10.30 to 1, but then she also said it was only supposed to be 90 minutes, which would actually support the fact that it started at 11.30, not 10.30.

WTF does this chick mean? She is not a native English speaker but...these are numbers we're dealing with.
