Learning a language can be daunting, especially at the beginning, I have been there many times, I now speak five languages. I teach with a creative, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere to promote self-confidence so that pupils can reach their highest potential. Your needs come first and I am very flexible.
From British parents I grew up in the South West of France close to the border with Spain. I graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Languages (French, English, Spanish, Russian, Arabic) and a Master's Degree in Tourism, Marketing and Wine both at Bordeaux University in France. I now live in Lancaster and I have set up my own company to teach French in Schools and privately.
With my professional experience in diverse industries I have come to realise how much I value guiding, listening and assisting people to encourage academic excellence. I am able to create calm and trusting environments so that my students can thrive and achieve their personal and professional goals.

I found Emily on-line when looking for a tutor. As a beginner in oenologie I appreciate Emilys clarity and patience when explaining. She is very insightful and professional. She is open to questions I have and provides very clear guidelines during our sessions. Emily is a very inspiring person and I would highly recoment her to anyone who is interested in taking their oenologie knowledge to the next level.
I've known Emily for many years, and her kindness, flexibility and ingenuity in helping others is most endearing. Plus, she has a wonderful engaging manner that anyone of any age would find calming and reassuring, and making you feeel at ease. Emily will find a way for you to learn: that she finds that as rewarding as the subject itself shows that she has natural talent for teaching.
Currently a student under Emily's guidance who has consistently provided really insightful lessons as she is very aware of both English and French cultures being a dual national herself.
She always plans each lesson to the needs/wants of the learner while maintaining flexibility which leads to really high productivity.
She is really patient with me while learning which is hugely appreciated and gives me confidence that I will achieve my learning goals much quicker/efficiently under her guidance.
