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.

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

Marie A. Is an awesome teacher, she knows how to set the atmosphere for her students to learn the information she's sharing with them. It was an honor to be part of her class because when I didn't understand something she came down to my level of understanding to help me understand what I did not understand. She's very caring, outgoing, amazing personality and she's a person that love to encourage people. I've never encounter such a loving teacher, meeting her triggers me to become a teacher myself.

Marie is a well-versed instructor. She understands that there's not a standard way to learn. Therefore she takes in consideration the student's learning style. She utilizes various media to make sure the subject is learned. She has great work ethics. Her sessions are affordable and are conducted at a mutually convenient place. My son was really fortunate to have her as a tutor in preparing for the state test. I would definitely recommend her service.

Marie to me is by far the best teacher on earth, better yet the best person I have ever met in my life. She was also my teacher in high school and I couldn't ask for a better human being to teach me about life, school and caring for others. she was always there for me even when I didn't want her to be. I guess you can say she was a second mother. She is kind, caring, understanding, and very passionate to teach her students. I promise you, having Marie as your teacher she will show you love, patience, and make sure if you have to, stay after school to learn and understand whatever subject that you are having problems with. I wouldn't say this if I didn't mean it, having Marie as your kids teacher will be the best thing for them. just make sure they don't get too close because she is that easily lovable and a great teacher.

Marie is a smart, qualified, patient, reliable and kind teacher. She tutored my son when he was having issues with Math in high school. She taught him strategies to help him better understand the material. She was very patient and encouraging with him. He became quite proficient and confident in the class and ended up earning an A. I strongly recommend her services.

Marie is one of the best educators out there. When I was younger she would look after me and it was always a blast. She is well informed on many subjects and would always answers any questions I had with very clear explanations. Without her I don't think I would be a student at one of the best universities in the country.
