The Management Team

Emma Beckford

Emma Beckford

Managing director

Emma established The Language Boutique in 2010 with the aim of bringing high quality teaching to children and their families in Singapore. At the time, she had been working in the country for two years as a language instructor before recognising the demand for a more professional and bespoke service. She has worked tirelessly over the past few years to give children a love for learning through her educational but fun approach to teaching. All the teachers who join the The Language Boutique follow this philosophy and are passionate about the school’s unique methodology.
