Wanna know how bad my reputation is as a language coach? 😉

Here is what some of my language learners said straight to my face – and behind my back!

I would highly recommend Ermy for learning Spanish, she is very patient and makes learning Spanish feel comfortable as you can have a conversation with her to practice as a friend which makes language flow much easier! She has great resources and doesn’t just stick to one way of learning each lesson which gives a good variety such as listening, music, flash cards and conversational. ELLEN JEFFREY

“The main obstacle that prevented me from learning Spanish was not really knowing where to start. In the Discovery Session with Ermy, I thought it was super smart to nail down conversation topics that personally apply to me. So, rather than sticking with “tus gatos comen pasta”, we figured out Spanish vocabulary words for things I actually do… like watercolors, knitting, writing blog posts. Also, having someone working with you to pursue your personal language learning goals is invaluable.” AMANDA SUE HOWELL (

I found Ermy’s patience and courtesy invaluable in the language course and I would have no hesitation in recommending Ermy if starting to learn Italian from scratch.”

“Excellent teaching, every lesson has been very, very enjoyable and I can’t praise Ermy enough. ” – BEN RUSSELL  

“The short time we have spent together you have given me lots of confidence and for that I thank you very much.” – JOHN CRADDOCK 



“Ermy has been a great tutor for my daughter, Iona, and has brought on her French in leaps and bounds! Ermy is well prepared and my daughter has really enjoyed the activities and how Ermy works to reinforce her learning. 

Iona had a great time in Paris and afterwards said that the tutorials had helped a lot when it came to speaking confidently with her host family. I know where to come if she wants some additional help for her GCSEs! My daughter and I would highly recommend Ermy!” – LISA H BUTLER & IONA 


“Italy was wonderful! I really had a great time. I tried to use my Italian wherever I could. However, I was pleased with myself for using it as much as I did, and I enjoyed saying ‘Piacere’ to the people I met. Thanks so much for a great four weeks of lessons, I was pleased with my progress and felt happy that I was confident enough to try out my language skills when away!” –REBECCA ALCOCK 

“Ermy’s resources have brought out my “learning superpowers”!  The inputs to learn solo helped me a lot. I could learn Italian faster thanks to the flashcards on Quizlet which featured high frequency words, so they were of great help to read Italian as well as understand daily conversational Italian.” SRINIVAS RAO

“I recommend Ermy- I went to one of her classes and it was well-prepared, really interesting and still fun!”  LOUISE DIGGLE (
