Client Comments

“Marguerita has worked with our daughter from sixth grade to ninth grade and has achieved excellent results.  In English, Math and French she raised her average significantly and also made the classes more enjoyable.  Ashley loved working with Marguerita as did my wife and I.”

- Louis Quitoni, CFO Hamilton-Madison House, Inc.


“Marguerita is extremely empathetic, reliable and responsible.  Her approach to the student is unusually kind, designed to increase motivation.  She was willing to go out of her way to make sure my daughter got what she needed, and as a result of their sessions, her SAT and AP scores increased dramatically and she was able to apply to her top choice colleges.”

- Catherine Allen, writer


“My daughter’s confidence rose tremendously.  After working with Ms. Merrick for a year, she no longer suffers from anxiety before tests and writing assignments.”

- Janine Berger, teacher – adult education


“In a limited amount of time she helped my son raise his SAT score in time for the test date.  She taught him extremely effective study methods and test taking strategies, which he was able to apply in his coursework as well.  She understood his specific needs and learning style more incisively than any other tutor he has had, and she made the studying process fun.” 

- Carla Williams, Director of Development MoMA


“Her academic background is extensive, and she is able to teach several subjects with real, in depth knowledge.  She knows how to explain difficult material so that concepts become clear, and she teaches students how to break down assignments and prepare for tests effectively.  Our students have benefited greatly from working with her, and their scholastic improvements have been quite remarkable.”

- Jonas Anderson, ACS International Schools
