My name is Emma, and I am a British English teacher from London, currently living in the beautiful Somerset countryside.
I have been teaching for five years, and have been working with Italki for three years. I specialize in teaching writing skills, focusing on developing and distilling students’ writing and helping them recognize and implement good writing principles. I also have substantial experience as a professional editor and proofreader in addition to my teaching.
Outside of my teaching I also enjoy vegan cooking, embroidery, hiking, drawing, reading, architecture and design, and hope to one day have a house full of rescue dogs!
To learn more about writing:
- Practice writing yourself!
- Read lots and often (The Economist is a newspaper known for its great writing)
- Read books about writing – Good with Words: Writing and Editing, by Patrick Barry is great (here is a link to read it for free: https://www.fulcrum.org/concern/monographs/1v53jz538)
- Take an online course (the British Council has lots of free ones, including this one specific to IELTS: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/understanding-ielts-writing)
