Both my daughters take from Emily and they absolutely love her. They come home each week saying that they learned something new. She is great at helping them to push themselves in ways that will help their voices to grow. Plus, they have fun with her and look forward to each lesson.

Really collaborative teacher, she asks what you want to do and helps you immensely with whatever you are working on. Great at finding your strengths, and will always push you to do better. I've had a wonderful time working with her, and have improved greatly.

Emily is such an amazing teacher and really helps you understand what she is trying to get you to do. She is personable and patents every lesson to the student's outcome. Not only have I found a teacher that is helping me improve, but I found a teacher that truly cares about her students.
