Bespoke lesson-plans, 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 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. Together, we practise pronunciation techniques; fluency; increasing vocabulary; writing; and many more skills - using methods including speaking and listening.
Student's comment-Linde: "She is great at explaining how to move the muscles in my mouth in order to make sounds I have never been able to produce before."
She also links difficult words to words that I already know, which makes it a lot easier to remember them. I feel like my pronunciation improves with every lesson.
Over the years, I have worked with international students, corporate clients, scientists, business entrepreneurs, and translators to enhance their communication skills regarding clarity, intelligibility, confidence, accuracy, and vocabulary range.
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.
Student's comment-Alejandro: "I am really happy with my progress and the way Emma makes every lesson interesting."
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.
Student's comment-Izabela: "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."
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.
Contacts are available for nearby, friendly, professional host families at reasonable prices.
Student's comment-Linde: "What’s even better is that she takes my incorrect sentences as examples as well, which makes it easier to apply the grammar to my everyday life."

Perfect! Emma is absolutely amazing! She is kind, optimistic, encouraging and patient. I started taking English lessons to improve my pronunciation and grammar. Emma understands really well what I have trouble with. She is great at explaining how to move the muscles in my mouth in order to make sounds I have never been able to produce before. She also links difficult words to words that I already know, which makes it a lot easier to remember them. I feel like my pronunciation improves with every lesson. My friends were pleasantly surprised with my improvement as well – they could clearly hear the difference. When Emma explains grammar, she has clear overviews, a lot of examples and exercises for me to practice. What’s even better is that she takes my incorrect sentences as examples as well, which makes it easier to apply the grammar to my everyday life.
Emma tailors each lesson to my needs, both the content and the pace. She asks what I have difficulties with and picks up little things I didn’t even know I said incorrectly. She takes a lot of time for her students, both during and outside the lessons. She always comes prepared with new material, exercises, homework and helpful links. And if something comes up in between lessons, I can always drop her an email. Emma’s enthusiasm is really motivating and makes me want to study and improve my English even more. I couldn’t recommend her enough. Emma is definitely the best English teacher I ever had.
Linde is a truly dedicated student, determined to improve her pronunciation of the English language and to increase her awareness of the quirks of the language. She listens intently and carefully practises all the tips and techniques which come to light in the classes. It is a pleasure to work with someone with such an inquisitive mind, and who is quite fascinated with the tessellation of the language, both written and spoken. Linde sets herself high standards and goes out of her way to attain them.
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.
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.
