“I loved the way Mariel gave constructive feedback and did not try to change my writing style, but rather improved it without losing my voice in it. I also thought she was wonderfully patient, and her several rounds of feedback always left me with optimism and understanding of how to improve my writing and structure. In addition, her questions were always guiding instead of ‘telling’ me what to do.”
Thank you very much for the inexpressible help you gave me, so I could pass through the whole application process smoothly. I immensely appreciate the time she spent with me. I had never written a typical American essay before, but thanks to her great advice, I could create an outstanding work. Thanks to Mariel, I got closer to my dream of studying in America.

Mariel was very helpful reviewing and giving me feedback for my resume and cover letter. She not only corrected grammatical errors but also helped me with sentence structures so that they will sound more natural. As a non-native English speaker, it is difficult to catch subtle differences of nuance between two sentences that seem to have the same meaning. Mariel helped me so that the sentence was appropriate to use and carried the meaning I wanted it to carry. In addition, she gave constructive feedback regarding the content of the cover letter without changing my style of writing so that I could find a better word to make the cover letter stronger.

“Thanks again for correcting my paper. I got an A for it! I think the way she corrected my term paper was very good. She always commented on why something was not correct so I could understand the mistake I made and correct it. I had the feeling she went to great lengths helping me!”
“When I first found out about personal statement for my Uni [in England] and found every bit of information about it I started to think if I really have to go there. Stars were with me and Mariel appeared at our school. She spent so much time with me kept correcting and lifting my mood. Despite the fact that I had never written anything longer than 120 words, she helped me to finish 3014 characters. She is brilliant! And then another obstacle came to my way, IELTS exams to prepare for. I have never seen anything like graph description in English in my life. Mariel told me about every secret and improvement I could use and make. Writing was my weakness and yet I passed the IELTS Academic module. She was always helpful and kind to me. She never said no for any request I had. And mostly she wasn’t a stranger. She became one of my best friends I’ll remember for the rest of my life. And thanks to her I have been offered four places at four UK universities. If anybody… then her.”
