"Marina has been a gift to our family. She is a consummate professional who has taken our son's academic challenges and turned them around with her gifts of knowledge, organization and strategy. I highly recommend Marina to any student who needs extra support, she is simply THE best!"

Heidi Johnson

"Marina is a well-equipped tutor. She worked with my son regularly for Pre-calculus and has the patience and skills to help students that need more of an in-depth review of the material. She is patient and understands how to teach to the specific learning needs and style of your student. We recommend Marina to other families who are looking for help in high school math."

Rose Gonzalez

"My daughter had done some SAT prep, taken the SATs twice but was not satisfied with her scores. Marina tailored an 8-week plan aimed at my daughter's personal needs. Marina provided a clear, efficient, and comfortable learning environment. My daughter improved her SAT score by 180 points and surpassed her personal goal by 50 points. With her SAT score to complement her GPA, she was able to put forth a competitive application which got her into her top choice colleges. Thanks Marina!"

Yvette Garcia-Flores

"My daughter had an extremely busy schedule. We found Marina and explained to her that we needed to maximize the effectiveness of private ACT preparation in a short amount of time to ensure that my daughter scored well on the test. My daughter increased her score by 3 points to a 34 thanks to the dedicated, strategic, and targeted approach that Marina took. She not only provided guidance on how to take the test, she also provided tips and tricks on to how to approach the ACT test. Everything was well worth the cost and I would highly recommend Marina to anyone looking to efficiently improve their ACT or SAT scores."
