STUDENT COMMENTS Thank you You are best tutor - Student from Russia ................ First of all, I would like to thank you very much for the dedication of last year. The test was very objective on foreign trade. The English question was comprehensive in explaining an export process, I do have to that our classes have helped me a lot! I used many terms and felt safe. I skipped many positions and got to 21st place. Since there were few vacancies, I did not passed . But last week they called me and I got my dream job! I apologize for my late return, but should know that your work was essential for my achievement! - Student from Brazil. ---------------- I have been putting a 5 star after every classes! You deserve it. Thank you - Student from India ------------ Marie, I go the job offer! Thank you so much for your help and support!!! - Student from Japan. ----------- Marie, Thank you so much! You have given me so many great advice and helping hand. You have also pushed me to go outside of my comfort zone. My husband has been saying "Marie is awesome!" almost everyday now. I didn't want my decision to move to the States to hold my career, but now I can strive for an even better career thanks to you. I will definitely be taking more classes with you since I still have a lot to learn from you. Again, thank you so much for all your help!!! - Student from Japan. --------------- Hi Marie! Thanks a lot to you for being my English teacher. It´s a privilege to have you as a teacher. We have not known each other for a long time but since we started classes, I have learned a lot with you. I have noticed errors that I had been committing for years and I was not aware of them, because nobody had corrected me before. In addition to all that, I have discovered that communicating in English is not just knowing the whole grammar perfectly and the vocabulary, but it is also the intonation of the words that helps you that the message you are trying to convey is not misunderstanding, and much more I have learned with the little time we know each other. Thanks for your encouragement and for your good advice on life, these help me to see life with different eyes and if there is any obstacle that hinders me from continuing with my path, I will not stop because of it, I will jump it ! 🙂 I hope you continue to be my guide for this long journey that is to learn English and to help me achieve my goals. Thank you so much. Best wishes.....Student from Madrid --------------- Here's my SAT report. Thank you for your years of instructing and assistance for me to achieve this score. - Student from China. -------------- "Thank you very much for your help.
