Gabriel
Over the years I’ve had many tutors, worked with many professors and teachers, and I have to say that Marie is by far in the top 5% of all educators that I’ve seemed guidance from. I’ve taken the GRE multiple times, yet was only a few points away from my required Verbal score. I saw the reviews that Marie had and decided that she would be the best person to help me achieve my goal and I was right. She worked with me to develop a study plan based on what worked best with my schedule rather than taking one size fits all approach to my learning. She took extra steps to send my daily assignments that were challenging and helped me grow. She took time to help me get to the root cause of why I wasn’t answering questions correctly by not just moving on to the next problem just because I got it correct. She really cares. We talked constantly and she was always there when I had a question day or night. I plan to apply her methods and all that I’ve learned from her while attending the university that I was recently accepted to! Thank you Marie! Anyone seeking a truly dedicated and inspiring tutor for GRE Verbal should definitely choose Marie. Simply the best!
Gabriel
First of all, Marie is a very pleasant person. Working with someone that is nice makes learning so much better. She immediately provided me with several new techniques for studying that will allow me to focus on the areas that I am struggling with. She broke information down to where it was easy for me to understand and reemphasized key points that she was teaching to ensure that I understood them. More importantly, she asked me if I understood what she was teaching me rather than assume that I comprehended everything immediately, which many instructors I've worked with do not tend to do. Lastly, she was also willing to adjust her schedule to help me get the study sessions in that I need. I'm glad that I am working with her to up my GRE score!

"I took lessons with Evelyne wanting to refresh my high-school French and she's been fantastic. She brings the best attitude, very encouraging, helpful, and patient. Not only is she a native speaker (which is great), she also understands the grammatical structure of the language very well and knows how to present new material in a way that doesn't overwhelm you. She followed up every lesson with an email which made it easier for me to memorize new vocabulary. Overall, it's been a great experience and I highly recommend her."

"I have been taking French lessons with Meriem for about a month now and have really been enjoying it! Meriem is friendly and patient and comes prepared to every lesson with what we'll be learning that day. She has recommendations of how to continue practicing while we're not having a lesson and has some great ways to learn some tricky things to remember. I highly recommend her!"

"I picked Zach because he is from Paris and my husband and I just returned from a trip there. We want to go back next year with improved communication abilities. Zach will not only be able to teach us the language we want to know, but also give us tips about Paris and France in general from a native's point of view.
Zach started me out perfectly for my first French lesson. It was challenging enough but not overwhelming. I love that (for a part of it) he recorded me so I could hear what I sounded I sound like speaking French -very helpful!! He has given me just enough to work on between lessons and left me motivated for what's to come!"

She provides advice and corrections on pronunciation as well as explanations of grammar and complex constructions. Highly recommend her! We primarily work in French but she uses English as needed for some explanations."

"Allan was a lovely surprise. My first lesson was stress-free and FUN! He was so kind, patient, and encouraging. He has inspired me to look at my language learning in a different, more positive way that will help me grow. Just one lesson with him and my confidence has increased substantially. After more than 30 years away from the language, I was so unsure of myself and my ability with French. However, with Allan, I feel as if I've hit the jackpot - gaining a tutor who not only understands what I'm going through but who will help me achieve my goals more enthusiastically."
