Marlyss met all our expectations and more. Our daughter needed specific help in studying for a US Government semester final. She provided her with many different options to approach the final including discussions, mini-assignments that were engaging, practice tests, and gave her a huge dose of confidence. Our daughter respected her for her knowledge and education and the fact that she, in turn, respected our daughter as an equally bright young mind!! Worth a million dollars to a teenager! We only wish we had found Marlyss sooner but had never looked at Wyzant before this time.
