Meet Your tutor!
A qualified and experienced teacher
My name is Edwige, I'm French and originally from a region on the west coast of France called Brittany. I'm a qualified professional teacher, with a degree (DAEFLE) in teaching French as a Second Language.
As a Native speaker, my teaching isn’t just about ingraining information into students’ minds for them to memorize — it’s about providing them with the tools they need in order to think critically and succeed.
I offer lessons tailored to your needs. I am particularly committed to developing your oral communication skills.
It is also very important for me that you feel confident and that you take pleasure in the learning process!
I love to meet new people and share our different cultures.
I’m easy-going, very flexible and I like my lessons to be lively. I enjoy teaching pronunciation, grammar, the use of different tenses, as well as conversational classes. I could also help you prepare for a French exam - I am a certified examiner for official French exams- or I can help you to develop precise work-related French skills.
I love outdoors activities, especially walking. I love walking by the sea, of course, coming from the coast of Brittany, but I also love walking in the middle of the vineyards, discovering a medieval castle hidden behind a forest...
Spending time in the garden is one of my favorite activities as well. We like growing our own fruit, vegetables and aromatic herbs.
I also enjoy to practice meditation and yoga. I've obtained the official 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training Course Certificate through Arhanta Yoga International, affiliated with the International Yoga Alliance.
Since I qualified to teach French as a foreign language in 2005, I've taught in various countries with L'Alliance Française: Morocco, Australia, New-Zealand, Norway, Belgium and the UK.
I have been working for the last 15 years with individuals, governments, public bodies and also private companies supporting them in their desire to improve their command of the language in a professional environment. I am fluent in English.
After this great experience, I decided to start my own business and I am now in this beautiful and exiting adventure of working for myself!
I am very happy to welcome my students to our lovely home for French Immersion stays.
If you’re searching for a French Language Tutor who can provide you with the personalised attention you deserve, look no further!
" As a certified ESOL teacher, I am both knowledgeable about and experienced in teaching a second language, but I learned a lot from Edwige, not just about French, but also about teaching. She is a gifted teacher with unerring insights into a student’s strengths and weaknesses and effective, creative methods to address those areas. These skills are underscored by her calm competence and genuine warmth and generosity."
