Marina is great! She is understanding and helping. I like work with her.Apr 10, 2018VerifiedMarina S.'s reply
Thank you very much! It is my pleasure working with you!
She did a great job on tutoring my wife in academic English. We can only recommend her. She is not a nativ borne, however her language is more sophisticated, than if she were. Maybe that's also why she is so good at teaching. She was the best tutor we have had. Thanks againDec 11, 2017VerifiedMarina S.'s reply
Thank you very much for your review. It is not very often that a student is as hard-working as your wife. All the best of luck, Marina.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My price varies from $25 to $50 per hour depending on the amount of work needed. All the prices are negotiable and I give discounts for long-term projects.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer a free 30 minute-trial lesson. Then we talk and I try to figure out what learning strategies a student is most comfortable with. If at the end of this conversation I am not sure about the student's level of proficiency in the language I may ask her/him to do a little placement test for me.
