Marylou was marvelously prepared for the meeting, with German materials of varying subject-matter and difficulty laid out on her table. Marylou immediately began a dialogue in German, a real joy for Ellie who has no one at home or at school with whom she can speak in German. Marylou quickly and expertly assessed Ellie's current level of fluency and then laid out a clear path for Ellie to study German during the upcoming year within the confines of Ellie's schedule.

I don't speak/understand German myself. However, so far at our first meeting, she imparted some valuable knowledge about German to my 15-year old daughter. She inspired my daughter to say again, "I love German", and she also inspired my daughter to say, "Thank you, Mom, for finding Marylou". She didn't want a tutor, but she has been frustrated with her German class and feeling like her questions go unanswered in her large public school.

Just a bit of my background: I have been studying German for almost two years now and have tried a number of German home study systems. Esther is my fourth tutor I have tried within the Wyzant System. So far, I have had 11 one hour sessions with her. I am SO HAPPY that I have “found” Esther! My past tutors, some of whom were quite good, have paled in comparison to her! I love her organized, structural approach to German. She provides complete guidance, follow-up, and personal attention.
