I am from France and I have been living in the US for the past 8 years. I have been working with Maggie to improve my English pronunciation for about 6 months. She is an incredible teacher and has been the key to my improved pronunciation. Maggie is patient and very knowledgeable. She is an expert at explaining in a clear and concise way how each word is supposed to sound. These classes have truly given me an entirely different perspective on the English language and how sounds are made. I highly recommend Maggie?s tutoring services for anyone looking to reduce their accent and improve their pronunciation.

If you are looking for a tutor who will exceed your expectations, Maggie is that person. Her vibrant outgoing personality makes tutoring sessions fun and engaging, while her incredible teaching skills, extensive experience, and tailored approach help you perfect your English with ease. My story is as follows: I had a pressing need to improve my writing. My level of English is something between ?pretty-good-for-a-foreigner? and ?but-you-are-still-a-foreigner.? It took me more than three frustrating months to find a tutor who could actually help me. My first tutor could not identify my issues and said here was nothing to work on. When I told my second tutor that I had issues with articles, he wasted my time explaining the difference between the articles ?A? and ?An.? Never mind that I had sent him a six-page legal memorandum to give him a sense of my English. He simply ignored it and came unprepared, but had no qualms about charging a fee. My third tutor had no system whatsoever. I could go on with a number of other ridiculous situations I encountered during my search. However, the point is that I wasted too much time. Luckily for me, my tutor search brought me to Maggie. By the end of our first session, I told myself, ?Well, now you are in good hands!? In contrast to prior tutors, Maggie quickly evaluated my level and identified the areas which needed improvement. What I loved most was that she developed a system specifically tailored to my needs; I did not have to think about what to do next. Maggie does more than I ever expected. She sends multiple grammar references and exercises. Be prepared, at a certain point you may be inundated with information! She often reviews my writing samples before we meet and follows up afterwards with materials on issues encountered during the session. On top of everything, Maggie is a very talented teacher who has a unique ability to break down some of the most confusing English grammar rules. Maggie has armed me with all of the necessary tools, and I have had no choice other than to improve my writing. In fact, my writing has significantly improved. Maggie has converted me into a fan of online tutoring sessions. I had mistakenly believed that in-person sessions were superior in quality to online sessions. Thus, for first six months I had only in-person sessions with Maggie. I cannot believe how much time I wasted on commuting. Aware of my long commute (about 45 minutes each way), Maggie suggested trying online sessions several times. However, being a creature of habit, I kept resisting until one day I finally tried one and absolutely loved it. Since then, I have only met with Maggie online. Online sessions provide the same quality of tutoring as in-person sessions in a more efficient manner, and Wyzant?s interactive platform enhances the experience.

Maggie thought me "th" pronunciation both voiced and voiceless. She is excellent at teaching and sent additional material including video after the class. She sent the test words before the class and identified critical issues in my pronunciation and gave the feedback ASAP. Her feedback helped me to understand the agenda of the session and to help me track my improvements.

I am taking writing classes with Maggie. I am very impressed with her thorough approach. She was prepared for our first class, so we were able to quickly identify my weak points and decide on the strategy for our work. She is extremely knowledgeable, meticulous, and patient. She explains and answers my questions until I fully understand the issue and have no more further questions. We are using the wide range of materials and assignments, thus, I have a ?full coverage? of my difficulties with writing.

Maggie turned my graduate school personal statement into a masterpiece without taking away my own voice. Maggie is kind and willing to work through many drafts to perfect a paper! Maggie is also very flexible and very quick to respond and provide feedback and edits. Maggie has an incredible talent for writing and I strongly recommend her as a writing tutor!!

I was very lucky to have Maggie as my tutor. I had >6 classes with her. She is a very experienced professional. I have difficulty in a lot of pronunciation and she was very patient to help me to master the techniques how to pronounce it properly. She always inspires me to do my best. She is also very considerate and will try everything she could to help me to improve.

Maggie helped me in understanding and identifying the challenging areas in speaking American English. She addressed these issues by teaching me how to make proper sounds and pronunciations. Taking classes with her helped me a lot.
- Raji M. from New Berlin, WI
I contacted Maggie because I needed someone to help me review my post graduate studies personal statement. Maggie went above and beyond expectations. My first draft didn't have good flow, so Maggie suggested I structure the paper in a different way...and it made all the difference. The final draft was clear, concise, and professional. I felt very comfortable submitting my "new and improved" personal statement along with my application. Today I received the good news I've been accepted to the program. Thanks Maggie for everything, you are a wonderful tutor with great advice. Also, you are wonderful at communicating with the students. You really get it!
