Marike has taught me with a focus on verbal communication not only during my three years stay in D.C. but also via Skype since I moved back to France. Her classes are extremely efficient. I have improved my pronunciation and vocabulary while going through a wide array of topics. Marike is a cultured and brilliant teacher who knows how to make you improve with the right methodological tools. With a lot of patience and flexibility, she customizes as much as possible. She even helped me with my resume for a number of top positions and assisted me with a number of professional presentations. Now that I have returned to France, I realize what I owe her and how much she has helped me reach my current level. If I had to give someone else a recipe to be good at English, I would definitely advise them to meet with Marike.
