Eva Ceriani, former student – Italy

“When I started my first class with her, she was so kind to everybody and she made me feel comfortable in class. That was so good because she taught the subject with excellent communication skills. She was organized and driven with the ability to keep all of us on task using very good methods of teaching and I understood everything more easily than I expected. My English skills improved quickly. Before going back to my country I took a final picture with her and since then we still keep in touch. She told me about her new online English course and I am looking forward to taking it with her.”  

Victor Vaca, former student – Ecuador

“Marie is the best teacher I have ever seen. She is not only my teacher, but also is my friend. When I had my first online English class with her, I felt so comfortable the whole time. I couldn’t believe I could speak English like that before meeting her. She has a special magic that helps people communicate in English naturally. She always encouraged me to believe I can do it, and helped me to improve my English level. Even better, when I was upset, she always listened to my problems and gave me advice. Because of the above reasons, if my friends want to study English I’ll  recommend Marie first. I am so lucky to have met her.”
