I have started working with Marina few months ago. She is helping me with one of my Chemistry modules in University. I have already managed to score a 70 in my first coursework and I am confident that with her help I will get a high mark in my exam as well. She is very knowledgeable, has loads of patience when expalining and she is lovely to work with. No question is a stupid question when working with her.

Marina helped my throughout university with my chemistry module. She is really fun to learn with and knows how to explain and make herself clear about the subject. I must admit that I did not like chemistry but she showed me a different way to learn and love this subject. Bottoms up for you, Marina!
