“I sincerely appreciate the help and instruction from Professor Rahilly. Her teaching has assisted me in getting more comfortable in English as a second language. Her charisma and kindness also played an important role during such an anxious period.”

Tianhyu, China

“I have had the honor of being a student of Professor Marilyn Rahilly at George Mason University’s English language institute, as well as a personal tutor. I say with great confidence that her classes were the best that I have had in my life. Professor Rahilly has a unique approach to teaching that makes her classes absolutely memorable and engaging. Her students find themselves looking forward to her classes and feeling obligated to match her enthusiasm and dedication. She is a high cultured individual who employs all of her resources with genuine care and thoughtfulness in a way that makes it nothing short of an authentic experience. You will remember her classes all your life.”

Abdul-Aziz, Saudi Arabia

"Taking a class with Professor Rahilly was a turning point in my academic and professional career. My first writing assignment in her class was terrible and I got many corrections. However, her comments and corrections made me review English grammar and spelling. Besides, the requirement of making oral presentations in her class was a good challenge that opened my mind and elaborated my thoughts. I really appreciate Marilyn's excellent instruction and I hope other students will join her classes."
