Como sempre foi uma ótima aula com a Marielle. Estou estudando com ela uma hora por semana há 3 meses e tenho progredido bastante. Nossas últimas aulas foram sobre colocação pronominal e pronomes oblíquos átonos, o plural metafônico, acentuação, e regência verbal. Também sempre dedicamos uma parte da aula à conversação. Ela sempre prepara bastante as aulas com material adaptado ao que preciso aprender. Além disso a Marielle é muito simpática e as aulas são muito divertidas! A great lesson as usual with Marielle! She has been teaching me one hour a week for 3 months and I have made significant progress. Our last lessons focused on "colocação pronominal", "plural metafônico", and "regência verbal". We also dedicate part of each lesson to conversation. She always prepares thoroughly the lessons with material adapted to what I need to learn. Moreover, Marielle is very friendly and the lessons are always fun! Jérôme.

I have worked with Marielle for around 3-4 years now, having weekly hour-long meetings with her. She is by all accounts a great teacher. I would say that her strengths are in empathizing with students and making them feel at ease during the sensitive periods of gaining confidence in another language. Responsive to individual situation, sensitive to student feelings, friendly and always professional (without ever seeming impersonal), Marielle has demonstrated herself countless times as a dependable language teacher. As a professor, myself, I recognize other good educators. In addition to her kind demeanor and professional comportment, she has always been prepared for our lessons. In working with her I have been able to achieve advanced/intermediate proficiency in the language, and I hope to continue my work with her towards fluency and beyond.

Marielle has an amazing ability to make students feel comfortable. She can conduct conversations on a wide variety of topics, and as a result, class time flies so quickly that it's often hard to believe that an hour has passed. I love learning everyday-Portuguese conversation this way. I am already looking forward to my next lesson. Thank you, Marielle!
