I tailor each lesson to the individual needs of the student whether for business purposes or for more fluent speaking practice. I have experience teaching every level and currently teach adults face to face in Cambridge. I coached students towards their exams in Spain for two years so have a basic level of Spanish. I quickly identify problem areas and work on them using a method that works well with each student-whether on the business premises or in the student's home.
I encourage the student to speak as much as possible by using a variety of techniques to provide material to talk about, using everyday vocabulary. More specialist vocabulary is explained for work purposes. I am extremely patient and have experience teaching learners from all over the world and therefore understand particular pronunciation difficulties. I provide a lot of help with common problems encountered, using, for example: tenses, phrasal verbs, and word order in sentences.
I am a native English speaker with a clear voice and am qualified through Trinity College London in TESOL. I also have an NVQ III in Business and Administration.

Perfect! Emma and I are working on accent reduction (Spanish is my mother language). I am really happy with my progress and the way Emma makes every lesson interesting.
It was really easy to schedule every lesson with Emma. She replied my request on the same day and we had the first lesson just a week after. Since then, we have already had 6 more lessons and Emma is always willing to find the best time that works for me.
Emma puts a lot of effort to make every lesson different and interesting. General conversation, reading, listening, ... Every day something different! I feel myself improving and Emma makes sure I practice on those areas where I have more trouble.
If you are looking for someone with a vast knowledge of English grammar, vocabulary, phonetics and teaching experience, Emma is the one :) She is capable of identifying the weak points in your pronuntiation and work on them.
Perfect! I was looking for somebody to help me improve my accent and Emma was a very good choice.
After only three lessons I noticed an improvement in many common words I use all the time.
I strongly recommend Emma and having one-to-one lessons is so much better value for money than group lessons!
Marco is an extremely receptive student and very interesting to work with. It is a pleasure to prepare lessons for him as he takes everything on board, quickly learning new techniques to improve his pronunciation.
Perfect! Emma is, without question, an excellent tutor; very professional and skilful at teaching the English language. She helped me find some weaknesses right away in my first lesson and she was immensely helpful in explaining everything in detail during our sessions and in the written feedback. Emma is very easy to get along with, friendly, kind, patient and very thoughtful in her comments. She is fun to work with and her lessons are never boring. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their English skills of speaking, reading or writing. You will be very fortunate to have her as your teacher.
Izabela has a high standard of English and is extremely dedicated to improving her enunciation of British English. She listens carefully and quickly takes on board the improvement techniques. Izabela is very interesting and fun to work with and it is a pleasure to try to help her improve communication within her business.
It’s my honour and pleasure to provide this letter of recommendation for Emma REX as she pursues English teaching. As a student of Emma REX, I’ve enjoyed having Emma approximatily thirty hours of one-to-one classes with Emma for six months. She has been important in my progression in the English language. When I say English, I include every disciplines of language (Writing, speaking with perfect pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar,etc).
Emma is a very nice teacher who wants to understand your difficulties and your wishes to help you. She uses a lot of support in your specialist areas or your passions to help you to speak with pleasure about a subject.
When I started the classes with Emma, I had great difficulty in being understood because of my pronunciation. The first classes were difficult for me because I didn’t understand why my speech was not understood. During the class, Emma pushed me to stay focus on the class for example, if I forgot the “h sound” she showed a big, cartoon “h”. She spent a lot of energy to correcting most of my mistakes. All these mistakes were written on a sheet of paper. Emma asked me to work on this paper for homework and to record myself. In the next class, Emma listened to my recording and corrected my speech. This cycle was maintained for all the classes.
This method by iteration and which includes listening to oneself to show one’s mistakes is perfect for my progression.
Emma is an excellent teacher. I have already booked other classes to complete my progression.
