Grammar can be a killer subject to learn. As someone who has studied six languages not including English, I know that. But there is no reason that you can't learn it with the right help. As a recent Master's program graduate, I have been successful in my use of English grammar. As someone who has been teaching and tutoring in foreign language since 2009 and studying foreign language since 2005, I have experienced many different styles of teaching grammar and understood it from many different angles. Basically, I'm more than ready to help you understand this crazy subject, and I'm eager to show you that you really can learn grammar! I hope you'll let me help you to achieve your language goals.

Teaching since:
October 2009

Howdy! I have an undergraduate degree in Classics and an MA in ancient history, and I have been teaching/tutoring since 2009. I know first-hand how much hard work can achieve, but my experience in teaching has also taught me that the work doesn't have to be so hard when a student has experienced, dedicated help. That's what I'm here for! I have done both paid and volunteer teaching, and I have worked both for myself and for a university. I have taught a wide range of students - ADD students, injured students unable to attend normal classes, struggling students - in a variety of environments. I have experience teaching to groups and individuals; face-to-face, chat-room style, and via video conferencing. I teach language because I have a passion for it, and my goal with my students, whether they are learning a new language or furthering their native English skills, is always to help them achieve their own language learning goals. I look forward to helping you achieve yours!

Japanese Tutor

I made myself available as needed to all levels of current Japanese students to help with homework, exam preparation, and study strategies. I was also occasionally asked by a teacher to teach a student who had, due to injury, illness, etc., missed too many classes to continue without extra help. My job in that case was to teach all the language which the student had missed and prepare them to continue with their classmates.

This is me helping with the Japan booth at Worldfest, College Station, Texas. The best way to practice language is to use it!

Practice and immersion make perfect! Did you know that "kimono" is written with the Japanese characters for "wear" and "thing"?

My son says she's an excellent instructor. I have not been around for the lessons, but he has no complaint and is learning the language at a good pace.

Emily is an excellent tutor of the Greek language, and has proven be very informative, patient, supportive, and instructive. As a senior citizen, I'm so grateful to have her as my instructor, and she has given me hope when I wanted to give up. She identifies specific needs and provides solutions, that help me stay focused, and I'm encouraged to continue working toward my academic goals.

Emily is a natural teacher and connected well with my 10 year old son. She started with the basic Hiragana and then built upon that foundation with more challenging material and conversation. School is starting so our time is now limited, but I'm so glad we worked with Emily this summer.

Emily has been doing an awesome job of bringing my son back on track. My son is new to Latin and has started Latin in 6th grade. Emily is patient, clear and motivating in helping him understand fundamentals. Thank you Emily.

She really starts at the basic levels for beginners and builds up slowly so it is very easy to understand. The homework is very easy and fun at the same time while learning. I recommend her for beginners.

Emily is wonderful! She starts with finding out what you know and then uses that as a springboard to dive you right into the language. She gives you all the materials you will need and gives some great advice. She is down to earth and definitely wants to help you as much as she can. I would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Japanese. Can't wait to have more lessons!

Do not be fooled by the fact that there are fewer student reviews than you expected.You must think about how to learn English more easily than to try to learn by yourself or at an English course.I attended a 1 year English course, but it did not help improve my English as much as my teacher, Emily, did. Also, the most important thing is that even if you are not in the good mood it doesn't matter for her to make you focus on the class. Her way to teach language is so good and understandable. She is amazing teacher like I've never had before. You just need to know what you want. She will be ready to help you. Even my husband is amazed how I improved my English this fast.
I am so happy to take the class from her. That's why my sister who lives in Turkey started taking the class.
