Great tutor!

Marcelle is very pleasant and easy to work with. She responds to her email quickly and is very flexible with scheduling. She is always on time and does not hesitate to stay longer when needed. She works through essay ideas and brings in a great knowledge of the structure of essays. Her teaching experience gives her great insight into what is expected from a college paper which I found very helpful. She is encouraging and would read the final version of the essay and point out any parts that could be improved (grammar, supporting ideas, etc.) I would definitely recommend Marcelle as a tutor!
