Marge tutored my son essay writing in preparation for his first year of college. She evaluated his skills and developed a lesson plan that hit the mark. I?m confident that after this series of lessons he will be equipped to succeed at college.

Marge prepared each lesson carefully and thus was able to cover several training points each time. She is efficient and well-read. I am very pleased to find her as my instructor.

I asked for English improvements and she made me feel comfortable at all times. She allowed me to explain to her what I want and need. English is my second language but her encouragement made me feel at ease. I can't believe how much I got in the first session. She is definitely worth the time and money.

I like the material Margaret provided and the way she organizes the class. Very helpful. We started with a vocabulary test to see where my level is, and it turned out I am at the 6-grade level LOL. She went through a short essay written by me and provided very helpful feedback. She also taught me something pretty new for improving my accent, toward a native speaker like. I can tell she has plenty of teaching experience and knowledge. I will definitely continue the tutoring lessons with Margaret.

Margaret has been helping me edit one of my dissertation chapters. She is very very patient with me and I love the way she gives constructive criticism. She also takes the time to explain to me what I'm doing wrong so I won't repeat it again. Totally recommend her!

Marge is easy to work with, is a good proofreader and mindful of my time constraints. It's been helpful to have someone knowledgeable help me finish my degree program as my friends have busy lives and really are not great at grammar or making citations.

Margaret comes with a game plan and has patience and compassion like no other. She has helped me discover my weaknesses and shows me how to turn them into strengths; meeting after meeting. She reminds me not to get down on myself and that I'm a work in progress. I still have work to do, but grateful to have connected with Margaret.
