I like Emily's method of teaching, she respects the student and at the same time does not you let get away with small mistakes! She is insistent on getting the sounds right! She is always very presentable, punctual and well organised for the work ahead.
Her lessons have made me more confident when I talk to English speakers. Her skills are indispensable tool for a people like me.
I found Emily online. I am originally from Hungary and I was looking for someone who can help me reduce my accent. I found in society that people associate an accent with low IQ. Working in a legal environment this was a big disadvantage. I instantly felt at ease in Emily's company. She is very professional and knowledgeable, what seemed impossible in the beginning I now use effortlessly in my everyday speech. I feel very grateful for all her help.
