If you enjoy doing something, then you are more motivated to achieve your expectations and goals. I have achieved my learning goals and had fun thanks to the language tutoring from Ermy.

Two months ago I knew very little Italian, but now I am ready for my first visit to Italy.

I am sure that my travel experience will be enhanced considerably by being able to converse in the native language. 

The confidence and knowledge I have gained in such a short time is down to the tutoring skills and organised approach of Ermy.

Key to the process was the initial discovery session. From that, Ermy designed a specific Learning Programme geared to meet my learning expectations and language capability. 

Whilst the programme provided the learning framework, there was also the flexibility to cover topics not necessarily planned at the outset.

The most beneficial , and indeed enjoyable part of the course, were the role play sessions.

Communicating with a native speaker was a great advantage, but the enthusiastic and bubbly personality of Ermy was the key ingredient in building my speaking confidence. Mille grazie, Ermy” –GRAHAM COTTS


“I really struggled with the various past tenses in Spanish. Thanks to Ermy I have a much better understanding and my confidence has sky rocketed. Ermy’s way of explaining the verb endings and the reasons why you would use the imperfect or preterite tense really made an impact on me. I now have so much more confidence and fluidity when speaking Spanish and have a much greater understanding of it all. Her calm and fun approach made me enjoy the lessons and learn so much. Thank you Ermy.” – ALAN BAXTER

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

“Ermy’s classes are always fun and engaging, especially the role play which built my confidence in Spanish. Her classes are always well prepared and using a good mix of exercises and approaches to learning Spanish.” – KATRINA

“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 


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! I tried to use my Italian wherever I could. I was pleased with myself for using it as much as I did, and I enjoyed saying ‘Piacere’ to the people I met.” –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 (
