I am experienced to teach both written and spoken Hindi . I can make classes fun and easy going and adjust the mood based on the students interest.
While learning Hindi they can also learn about the Indian cultural and the cooking style. This can be a complete class if someone is also interested about India or if the interest is in learning only language then that can also be achieved in a very simple easy going class

My lessons are customized to address the specific needs and goals of the student. My first lesson starts with an combined informal ( introduction and conversation) and more formal assessment (pronunciation, grammar, writing, etc.). I also use methods to meet the specific learning style of the student and rely on a variety of sources. For example, I often start with a pronunciation drill focused on a specific area and/or address a particular grammar area before having the student give a talk, engage in a role play, or work on piece of writing. Moreover, I work with students on specific communication goals (conversational English; formal presentations; chairing meetings; resumes and cover letters; interviews; reports and all other types of writing-- including essays, research papers, and legal writing; and test preparation, such as TOEFL and IELTS.

Marcelle is an expert at English language. I have been taking English writing lessons from her. She is a very good English expert, very focused and has been very sharp in identifying my weak points. She gave me a different strategy on how to overcome my weakness, and I am surprised with the result. I would recommend anyone who wants to improve their English. She is also a very good human being.
July 22, 2017
I like the way how she organized the classes. Marcelle knows which part of my English language needs to improve. She is very flexible in the timing of the classes. I strongly recommended her for whoever wants to improve and refresh their English language. Honestly, she's the best.
