About Brigitte

French
As a native French speaker having spoken English since elementary school, I've learned the importance of laying the proper foundation - grammar, verb forms (and yes, they are difficult in French), vocabulary - and to combine this with free-form speech in order to encourage the student to express themselves without reservations. My credentials include teaching French at a community college in Sweden (I am fluent in Swedish as well), and, as a volunteer in the Westborough (MA) school system tutoring Haitian students, and of course guiding my own children to develop fluency concurrently with their classroom assignments. My approach will be to complement your children's French curriculum by focusing on the areas that challenge them, and to help them develop the confidence to express themselves. I'll use age-appropriate French books to reinforce comprehension and infuse a fun element to the tutoring.

Marketing
My chosen profession, marketing, took me to many exciting roles at Fortune 500 and start-up companies, from product manager, public relations, corporate marketing and branding, international marketing, channel marketing and much more. Later in my career, I founded and built my own marketing consultancy company in 2001 which I successfully ran for 10 years prior to moving to North Carolina. I would love to mentor a dedicated business student, budding entrepreneur or seasoned business person in their marketing endeavors, from helping and guiding to develop a marketing strategy to executing online and offline marketing programs.

Yoga
As a long time yogi, I enjoy the incredible benefits of a regular yoga practice that allows me to build strength, endurance and flexibility without compromising my health. Having completed an 8-month yoga teacher training program here in Charlotte, I am offering a yoga practice to anyone seeking to improve their body's strength and flexibility in a calm, soothing manner, where the focus is placed on your own current capabilities - and limitations. The yoga practice that I offer originates from the Hatha Yoga lineage, which is composed of both standing and floor postures, guiding the student into a proper alignment, mindful of the joints, helping to build balance and core strength. This practice can be used to become familiar with the yoga poses prior to maybe enrolling in a yoga studio, or to help deepen your current practice, as well as guiding you to correct any alignment issues you may experience.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Marketing

My degree is in International Marketing, and I have successfully ran marketing departments at Fortune 500 as well as start-ups. As such, I have been responsible for the hiring and mentoring of dozens of business staff, some with little marketing experience. As can be reviewed in my LinkedIn profile, I have also founded and managed my own consulting marketing firm for over 10 years, which afforded me the opportunity to broaden my own skillssets by adding all new digital and social media expertise.

Yoga

I hold a Hot Yoga teaching certificate from The Yoga Oasis, and I am an RYT200 (Registrered Yoga Teacher 200 hours) with The Yoga Alliance.
