Thank you, Debra, for your kind words! I admire what you do for your children and I'm happy that I can help your daughter learn English.

"A wealth of knowledge!"

- Diana, Greenwood, IN on 12/4/13
Mariana replied on 1/3/2014

Thank you, Diana, for your wonderful words! Your daughter does not stop impressing me with all the work she does on her own in the process of learning Russian. As I shared with you, she reminds me of myself when I got fascinated by languages at an early age. Her well thought questions, her amazing pronunciation and remarkable hand writing of the Cyrillic alphabet show a true talent and I can see her building a great career in the linguistic field. I feel blessed for being a part of her success!

Thank you so very much, Scott! I think that this was what she needed - some regular practice and confidence. I find her very easy to work with because she is well behaved and very, very sweet. I am so proud of her!

Terry, I consider myself lucky for meeting your family! You all are such wonderful people! Your grandson is a great student and I enjoyed my working time with him. It is so nice to hear from you! Thank you for taking the time to post this testimonial, I appreciate this gesture!

"Caring and Involved!"

- Theresa, Indianapolis, IN on 4/21/13
Mariana replied on 4/22/2013

Yes, I can't agree more - confidence is a huge factor. My core belief is that everything matters when it is about a child. The earlier the academical struggles of a child are taken care of, the better. Your step-daughter is such a wonderful young lady, intelligent and vibrant. I could instantly tell that she would do remarkably better when she starts trusting herself more. And I will do my best to speed up this process! Thank you, Theresa, for the wonderful words! Parents’ support is highly appreciated by teachers. Thank you.

- Sandy, Greenwood, IN on 4/16/13
Mariana replied on 4/17/2013

I appreciate your wonderful words, Sandy! Thank you so very much! I'm happy I met you because you are a wonderful lady and a fast learner. You make me proud every session, and I enjoyed helping you improve your math skills. My biggest accomplishment is managing to change your attitude towards algebra. I have the faith that everybody can better themselves academically, at every age! I admire your courage and perseverance. You have achieved success in so many areas in your life that I am honored for helping you on the way to the next one.

- Ria, Indianapolis, IN on 4/10/13
Mariana replied on 4/10/2013

It's been so rewarding to teach you, Ria. I am proud to have a student like you. High school algebra and biology can be challenging, but hard work always pays off. I know that you will fulfill your dreams! Just aim high, and keep making me proud!

"Truly The Best"

- David, Indianapolis, IN on 3/8/13

"Great all-around tutor!"

- Dave, Greenwood, IN on 2/15/13
Mariana replied on 4/4/2013

That is true, David - unfortunately grades don’t always present students’ intellectual level correctly. Since the first tutoring session, I could tell that your son is smart, wonderfully up-brought and an interesting interlocutor. He enjoys seeing things from a different prospective and appreciates new approaches. That’s why working with him is so rewarding. I know that there will be many, many occasions in which he will continue making us all proud. Thanks again for the support! Parents’ attitude makes a big difference.

"Great tutor"

Thank you, Cheryl. I think that what you're doing is amazing, and I am so happy to help. You are learning fast, and I find very touching the fact that your heart is leading you to gain as much knowledge, as you can for the short time we have on hand.

"Great tutor"

- Charita, Indianapolis, IN on 1/17/13
Mariana replied on 1/23/2013

My students’ success is my success. I am very proud of your daughter and very happy for her! She is a nice young lady and I know she will be successful in everything she puts her mind into.

"Best teacher I've ever had!"

- Eriko, Greenwood, IN on 12/12/12
Mariana replied on 12/13/2012

Thank you, Eriko, for these sweet words! Helping young people achieve their goals really means the world to me! You are an amazing young lady and a great future awaits you, I feel honored for having the opportunity to help you get closer to it! I've told you that for me meeting people who speak different languages is like taking trips to their homelands. Meeting you was a spiritual journey to the Land of the Rising Sun.

"Great tutor"

- Arthur, Indianapolis, IN on 12/6/12

"Excellent and Outstanding Tutor"

- Neitra, Indianapolis, IN on 11/3/12
Mariana replied on 11/5/2012

Thank you so very much for these kind words, Neitra! Your son is well behaved and easy to work with. I believe that his lack of motivation was the only thing that prevented him from performing to the best of his abilities. I'm so glad that my methods broke through to him. He is intelligent and I have faith that he can succeed in everything he puts his mind into. I am honored to be a part of the process.

"Great tutor"

- Lei, Indianapolis, IN on 9/15/12
Mariana replied on 9/16/2012

When the student's mother tongue is so different from English, and it even doesn't have some sounds that the English language has, the efforts required are tremendous and this is exactly what you put forward, Lei. Your motivation and perseverance are remarkable and the work you did - huge! That's why the progress in your pronunciation was so big. I enjoyed teaching you and learning about your culture and language, and country was very, very enriching for me.

"English teaching"

- Philip, Bloomington, IN on 8/26/12
Mariana replied on 9/2/2012

Thank you, Mr. W.! Teaching your son is a true pleasure! He amazes me every time because he is a very fast learner. Every teacher would agree that a motivated student is a blessing, and your child is self-motivated and success-driven. I just do my best to keep him on his toes, and to help him perform to the best of his abilities.
