Bio

Hello! My name is Emma, and I'm a qualified high-school English and French teacher. I have 2,5 years teaching experience and 4 years of tutoring experience. I love teaching, learning and traveling.

I believe it is extremely important to be a good listener. I'm empathetic and able to imagine how others would feel in different situations - when teaching and tutoring, I always think of myself as a young student and how I would want to be treated by a teacher. I'm patient, and always try to be as kind as possible.
