My experience comes through Third Coast Events as one of their top account managers in three different campaigns, so I have a wide breadth of experience.

Wow! Best language lessons ever because Emily responds to personal goals. Have studied French, Greek, Latin and Hebrew previously but never as engaging because Emily personalized the experience of learning! I am so happy!
My daughter loved her lessons with Emily. She now speaks 2 additional languages in addition to her first language.
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.
