H. Chen
“Though I have earned a doctoral degree in the US, I always feel that English can be a challenge for a non-native speaker. It is especially true when my work requires high communication skills. Maribel was my English tutor and she is a wonderful teacher. She quickly shapes her teaching according to my background and requirement. She knows exact "tricks" which make writing professional. She also has excellent skills to make classes fun. I can tell significant improvement even after a few weeks.”
Paulina J.
“Maribel is a professional, experienced teacher with an individual approach to student. During the first classes we discussed the goal I wanted to achieve. She recommended to me the books which were very helpful. Maribel was always prepared for the classes and she always brought interesting materials/ articles to practice English language. It was always a pleasure to attend English classes. I felt very comfortable speaking English to her. She has a huge knowledge about American history and culture. She also recommended to me the places I should visit in the area. She cared a lot about me so I can say that I had not only a great teacher but also a great friend. We still stay in touch after I came back to Europe. She is a very warm person. I miss her a lot!”

“Maribel is a wonderful teacher. She was always there to motivate, inspire, support and assure me. She taught me some simple & effective ways to improve my writing. She is an excellent teacher, a trusted friend and a good human being. She is committed and reliable. She suggested the right books/materials for me to read and improve my writing skills. I am fortunate to know her & learn from her.”

“Maribel helped me write papers for my Master's degree and helped put it in APA format as per the instructions. Maribel is very knowledgeable, and explained what I needed to do to correct my paper. She is an AWESOME tutor who I would highly recommend to friends who may need help.
***** five star rating from me!!!!

Paolo G.

“Maribel, is able to involve the student in learning a new language, moving from the traditional teaching methods to a personal and empathic approach. The lessons were always very interesting and the dialogue with her was open to a wide range of topics. thanks Maribel.”

Miho K.

“I’m a professional living and working in the United States. Maribel has been my business English tutor for 5 months. She continues to find interesting and pertinent material for vocabulary, speaking, reading and comprehension. She is not just only an “English” teacher, but also able to teach “Business” related English. It really helped us to catch up with American’s business skills. Also, she is good at taking care of her students and their life in the United States. There are many difficulties to live abroad. However, since she had ever lived in Italy, she understands our situation.

I will definitely recommend her to any student who wishes to further their ESL/SLA experience.”

Mukund R.

“Maribel is a very flexible and works with the greatest integrity towards agreed time frames and quality. On all occasions, I have found her to go that extra mile to provide inputs which have not been in the agreed scope. She has a resourceful network and brings in all her domain expertise and experience to do justice to the work taken up. I have loved working with Maribel and would certainly recommend her.”

C. de Biasio

“I've been working with Maribel since 2000, using her skills to satisfy various requests from my Customers (e.g. translations, proofreading support, training on job, private lessons). She has also worked for other companies while here in Italy (Oxford Institute, AB Westminster, Wall Street Institute), always teaching to high executives and officers for large companies (Telecom Italia, Banca Intesa among the others), always achieving great results in terms of preparation of students and lesson organization (often she has been the only responsible for the course set up).

I would  definitely recommend her as an invaluable partner, well organized, skilled and trustworthy, reliable both in terms of quality of service provided and for the skill in dealing with customers.”
