"Marie was my daughter's teacher for grades 7 and 8. She was fantastic! She dealt with my daughter's school anxiety issues well, and was willing to be flexible to accommodate her needs. She came up with some great ideas to make her learning experience better. I highly recommend Marie as a teacher, and as a person." -Jennifer
"Marie has been a colleague of mine for over 10 years. She has always been a very thorough and committed teacher who has a genuine care for her students' success. Marie has a thorough understanding of Math concepts allowing her to use a variety of methods of presenting these to her students. Additionally, she has a passion for ensuring concepts are understood, not just for the moment, but also for future recall and as the concept is built upon. My oldest son has been in her Math classes and he came out of the experience with a fantastic understanding of concepts he struggled with. I highly recommend Marie." -Jer
"I was the head of the school where Marie has gained many years of experience teaching both grade seven and grade eight. Her students have always spoken highly of her ability to make difficult concepts (especially in mathematics!) understandable, and she demonstrates a lot of patience for students who are struggling to 'figure it out'. Mrs. Marie is an excellent tutor." Kevin
