« Marcel is a superb English teacher. I had English lessons with him before taking the Toefl exam and those lessons were of great help to me. Marcel has a vast knowledge of English grammar and knows minutely the subtleties of English pronunciation. Moreover, Marcel’s deep familiarity with Anglophone literature and culture makes his lessons very stimulating. Every lesson he would present an interesting subject and then develop a conversation about it through a lively perspective. He is a very attentive and caring person and his teaching skills allow him to adjust the lessons to the student’s English level and to keep track of his/her weak points and improvements throughout the lessons. That’s how it was with me and that’s what I’ve heard from other of his students – all of them were unanimous about the excellence of his performance as a teacher. Also, what makes his classes so stimulating is the fact that he is a very easy-going and fun person. He is a very experienced and eclectic English teacher and I strongly recommend him. »

Marcel is a superb English teacher. I had English lessons with him before taking the Toefl exam and those lessons were of great help to me. Marcel has a vast knowledge of English grammar and knows minutely the subtleties of English pronunciation. Moreover, Marcel’s deep familiarity with Anglophone literature and culture makes his lessons very stimulating. Every lesson he would present an interesting subject and then develop a conversation about it through a lively perspective. He is a very attentive and caring person and his teaching skills allow him to adjust the lessons to the student’s English level and to keep track of his/her weak points and improvements throughout the lessons. That’s how it was with me and that’s what I’ve heard from other of his students – all of them were unanimous about the excellence of his performance as a teacher. Also, what makes his classes so stimulating is the fact that he is a very easy-going and fun person. He is a very experienced and eclectic English teacher and I strongly recommend him.
