I am a strong believer that lessons should interactive, fun and engaging. The student is always at the centre of the lesson, with lessons going at a suitable pace. After an initial determination of the student's language level, end objectives and learning style (Visual, Audio, Kinetic), I will prepare - and adapt when necessary - tailored grammar exercises and vocabulary work. Lessons will cover all four essential skills (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking).
I elicit answers to exercises from students with realia, role-playing and podcasts. All lessons will be taught in French to create a full-immersion experience; Studies have proven this to rapidly accelerate students' language-learning progress! My teaching methodology remains very flexible and is tailored to students individually.

As a close friend of hers, I can honestly say that Emma is an enthusiastic, smart and very easy-going person, who will happily go out of her way to help anyone with anything she can, no matter how well she may know them!
Emma is very welcoming and friendly, always making others comfortable in her presence. Her greatest strength is her passion for language and supporting others on their language journey. Emma has helped me with French practice in the past, and was very patient and supportive when my pronunciation was questionable. This was particularly important to me as I was fearful and embarrassed about speaking another language, but Emma put me at ease and wasn't judgemental. I would thoroughly recommend Emma to anyone looking for a knowledgable, fun, and friendly language teacher!
