Emma hails from rural Minnesota, where she frequented her local library to the point that her parents were forced to threaten returning her literary spoils as a form of disciplinary leverage. After graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in 2014 with degrees in French Studies and Cello Performance, Emma spent a year in France teaching English to high school juniors and seniors. Having completed her Masters of Arts at Harvard in 2016, Emma is now in her third year of a PhD program in French Literature, where she specializes in the relationship between music and contemporary French writing. Her current research led her to pursue a secondary PhD field in musicology, which she completed in 2017.

Emma originally came to teaching through music. After many years of private cello lessons, she started volunteering with her local orchestra program. During college, she "changed her tune"Ńthat is to say, she reapplied her teaching skills, but this time to language learning. As a volunteer peer tutor in French at the University of Minnesota, she eventually oversaw all tutors in the Department. Today, she works as a Teaching Fellow in Romance Languages and Literatures, where she enjoys spiraling language and culture to introduce students to beginning French. Emma especially relishes challenging her students to bypass clichŽs and drive to the core of the idea they wish to communicateŃwhether in essayistic, expositional, or creative writing. She has edited many an application essay and strives to emphasize transferable writing skills that will serve her students well in the future.

When she is not reading, Emma enjoys long-distance swimming, watercolor painting, and tending to her tiny urban garden during the summer months in Cambridge.

Testimonials

  • “Emma helped me revise my personal statement so the writing flowed naturally, while still preserving my voice and my story.”


    Michaela, MD/PhD Applicant

  • “Emma is an extremely effective teacher who can also be your best buddy. I worked with Emma during my MBA application process. It was a gigantic task that involved writing nineteen essays for eight schools. Emma's dedication to teaching far exceeded my expectations: she was available to meet multiple times a week (which I really needed), and taught me how to write in a tone that struck the perfect balance between personable and professional. She worked with me through every step of the writing process, from brainstorming to fine-tuning the twentieth draft of an essay that had to be impeccable. Even looking back four months later, I am proud of those essays. I can safely say that I was able to do my absolute best and have Emma to thank for it. I'm very happy with the schools I was accepted into. I wholeheartedly recommend Emma as a writing coach to anyone fortunate enough to work with her.”

    Zach, MBA Applicant

She listened to the information I knew about individial schools and helped me form specific supplemental essays for each application. Emma was very responsive and helpful—exactly what I needed this fall.”


    Sophie, College Admissions Student

  • “Emma helped me write essays that illustrated my abilities. The Cambridge Coaching team was very helpful and reduced my overall admissions stress.”


    Isabella, Graduate School Applicant

  • “Working with Emma not only strengthened my MBA application essays, but also improved my overall writing. I was amazed at how quickly we were able to transform my drafts into products that I was proud of submitting. Emma didn't hesitate to challenge me when she thought I was heading in the wrong direction, but she made sure to let my ideas carry the essays. I'm very happy with the process and firmly believe my end products were stronger as a result. I've since been admitted to Columbia Business School and received interviews at four of the other five schools.”

    Jennifer, Graduate School Applicant

  • “Emma kept my son organized, calm, and focused. She communicated well with me, too. Anytime I reached out to her in a panic, she came right back with assuring words and a well-thought-out plan. Emma was committed to helping my son get through an especially challenging second semester of his senior year. She kept him positive, on-track, and motivated until the end. Her work is flawless and thorough and any student would be lucky to have her on their side.”


    Wendi, Parent of Expository Writing Student

  • “Emma is fantastic. She's so well organized, intelligent, approachable and accommodating. Her strategic planning and homework assignments helped me stay productive and on top of deadlines. Applying to competitive graduate schools is a very stressful process, but Emma kept me calm, confident, and motivated. The Cambridge Coaching team was the best support system I could have asked for—the tutors are so well equipped and genuinely care, and the administrative team regularly checks in to make sure everything is going smoothly. Overall, I love the organization and strategies at Cambridge Coaching—they are extremely effective!”


    Dominique

  • “I loved working with Emma. It's clear that she really knows what she's doing when it comes to the Medical School Admissions process. She helped me articulate my ideas and further develop them into meaningful and effective stories for an admissions committee. With her help, I flew through the secondary applications, and was able to submit everything in a timely manner. Her strategic approach helped me get through the process with as little stress as possible. I am really grateful for everything that she has done for me—I wouldn't have been able to do with without her.”


    MD Applicant

  • “Emma was an amazing writing coach! I feel like Emma knew when I was slowing down on the writing or not doing a strong job, so she encouraged, motivated and pushed me. I really like how Emma edits as well. She gives such good advice and feedback. I think I became a better writer because of Emma!”
