Taylor really enjoyed her session with Ms Marie, she stated she felt inspired to do better. Looking forward to another lesson.
Lorraine R.
I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.
Guerschom D.
I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

Being able to effectively communicate with others is the first step to building genuine relationships with them--whether casual, personal, or work relationships. My goal is to give my students the tools you need to communicate with others in English, so you can achieve your unique goals as a capable English speaker. I seek to genuinely listen to and learn from my students, not just teach. I aim to make your learning experience fun and joyful because learning a new language opens up new worlds and new possibilities and should be enjoyable!

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.
Ryan
Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.

She is the best at this job. I have had two teachers prior to her...she is by far the best. Thanks to her, my pronunciation is very good, my comprehension is very good. I will continue my lessons with her as soon as my schedule permits."

I was impressed with her dialogue delivery to my kids and her face expressions, Me and my wife personally found her approach to our kids truly remarkable and commendable. Additionally, the skill of using a computer as a teaching tool was very professional. As a teacher, she is very dedicated and devoted person.

"Hello,
When I moved from Russia to US in 2011, my English was at beginner’s level and I desperately needed to start speaking this language as soon as possible: especially for my job but also for my every day life.
I tried to take some ESL classes at local colleges and also study with a tutor but it did not work very well. Instead I became more afraid of making mistakes or saying something not correctly. I was frustrated and started to think that I am just not made for learning new languages.
I heard about Roman from my colleague who did intensive French language program designed and taught by mr. Nam. So he told me that Roman also teaches ESL. I decided to give it a try.
After three months of classes with Roman my English improved so much! From the beginning of classes I started to feel so motivated and everything was explained in really simple way. I don’t really understand how Roman was doing this but every class and even every homework was so interesting and so fun to do. I loved to hear myself speak English better and better. I started to use my english in any situation and I felt so confident.
Now, after four years living in US my English is much better but i know that the most important step in my progress was the program I did with Roman and I am very thankful for all his help."
