Adult Student Testimonials

“Emma has been effectively helping me improve my Spanish and my confidence in speaking. In her classes, she uses grammar as a resource to develop my speaking, and understanding skills which she has brought to the next level. We have a lot of things in common, a love for cinema and literature. Emma’s classes are truly enjoyable, super creative, and we learn together and from each other.

I highly recommend her methodology!

Ana, New York, 35 y.o.

 

“I am very VERY happy with how much I have boosted my Spanish with Emma. In her classes, there is always something to be learned, not just in Spanish but also the way she presents the class dynamics and how we interact with them through language makes it really unique. We are both movie lovers, sports practitioners, and we also love sharing book recommendations. I have improved my speaking and writing skills exponentially, and feel confident to practice whenever I can start traveling again. Emma, I hope we can get to meet and discuss books and movies face-to-face, sometime soon”.

Josh, Washington, 41 y.o. 

“I am having a blast learning with Emma for two main reasons, the classes are fun and playful, and I can see how effectively they are supporting my learning. I leave every class super satisfied with the progress and with a smile on my face. I couldn’t have found a better teacher! I truly am learning with a Twist :)”.

Klaudia, Seattle, 30 y.o.

Nicole Dietrich - mother of 6 y.o.

“Emma makes Spanish class really fun. Our son continues to gain confidence reading and speaking Spanish”.

John Kraska - father of 7 y.o.

“Emma provided Spanish lessons to my three children ages 19, 17, and 13yrs.  Emma´s lessons were geared toward each child’s individual interests and level. She is able to make each child feel successful whether it was their first experience speaking Spanish or they had been taking it for a number of years at school. During our family dinner time, the kids each took pride in sharing their newly acquired Spanish skills. 

Emma teaches with a kindness that makes each child feel special”.

Jennifer - mother of 18, 16 & 11

“Emma is a uniquely talented and effective teacher, who manages to create engaging, effective, and entertaining lessons for students of ALL ages and levels. In addition to being a wonderful teacher, Emma is kind, imaginative, and has a wonderful sense of humor. Our 11-year-old is always in the mood for Emma's class -looks forward to it- even on Saturday mornings! He has improved tremendously and is simultaneously having a wonderful time. You could not find a better teacher”.

Tamara - mother of 11 y.o.

“A good teacher with an endless curiosity and true devotion to helping people grow. It matters less what they teach and more how they help their students make connections. Emma can teach anything because she is vibrant in the adventure of living and inspired to share that energy with others. Khair loves learning Spanish because he loves engaging with Emma!”

Valarie - mother of 11 y.o.

“I can't say enough good things about Emma, and her ability to meet any student where they are and elevate their skills and enthusiasm for Spanish. Even on a remote basis - and throughout the pandemic - she has been able to continue to engage, encourage, and challenge our son Sterling. She is one in a million.”
