I could not have asked for a better tutor. Class is always fun & full of laughs (even though we take the lessons seriously, but not ourselves). Thank you for everything! ”

“Marianne is extremely patient with Paul and very good at relating to him, which makes him more open to extra lessons. I also appreciate how she is able to come up with fun new ways for him to learn, beyond the day-to-day needs we have with his school work.”
