French tutor Guylaine Friteau runs conversation classes for beginners to advanced speakers and French from primary to GCSE standard. She is also available for one to one tuition.

She is a qualified teacher who has taught in both primary and secondary schools and within the adult education sector delivering daytime classes and evening classes; she can address your French language needs at whatever level is required. It doesn't matter if you just want to learn a little holiday French, improve your advanced French conversation skills or pass your GCSE with a good grade, Guylaine has the knowledge, teaching skills and techniques to get you there.
The main centre at which Guylaine teaches evening classes is Mickelover School, a convenient and comfortable place to learn. The conversation classes cover all levels from beginner to advanced and are an ideal follow up to any exam course that you may have done. Or, if you learnt French at school and feel a little rusty, the conversation evening classes are perfect to polish up your skills in a sociable, relaxed and fun environment.
Guylaine's evening class courses are carefully planned to ensure progression and she uses a wide variety of different techniques including structured conversation, listening, grammar, games and open discussion. Everyone has the chance to participate and is given individual feedback and guidance during each session. Interest is maintained throughout the classes by choice of topic which include many aspects of French culture as well as travel, holidays etc. She is always happy to prepare other topics asked for by the group, to give feedback on written work and produces printed support materials specific to the group such as lists of useful phrases and errors to avoid from the previous week.

The Benefits of Home Tutoring
Condensed learning for your youngster.
In the classroom, the teacher is seldom able to spend more than a total of a few minutes with each pupil. In a one to one situation with a tutor, the entire session is dedicated to the one student. This means that they have instant feedback about their understanding and can work more intensively on other aspects such as grammar and pronunciation. In addition, any questions that your child has concerning the work can be asked and dealt with immediately.
Customised learning experience.
In the classroom, a good teacher will have differentiated the work to allow access to all levels. It is, however, impossible for any classroom teacher to differentiate every lesson completely (not a criticism, it is a reflection of the lack of preparation time available) i.e. to have beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons running at the same time. With a one to one tutor, each session will be pitched exclusively for the level of your youngster.
No learning disturbances.
Young people at school suffer from many pressures, both academic and emotional. These spill over into the classroom and impact on everyone in the class. In a session with a one to one tutor, in the comfort of your own home, your youngster will be able to focus on learning without having to suffer the intrusions of others.
