Information About Bryan - Derby tutor - (8 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Bryan:
I am a fanatical teacher of French and also a professional musician.
In both respects I believe in the name to be able to stand up and perform at a moment's notice.
And I always attempt to incorporate an element of fun into all that I do.
30 years as a classroom teacher, 26 as Head of Department.
6 years as a personal tutor of both French and several musical instruments.

I tailor my approach to the person in front of me, be it a 5 year old or a 60 year old, usually something in between.
I evaluate capability and do activities which are within the student's capabilty but stretching.
Orally I will insist on near perfect pronunciation, and will always insist on the need to embrace grammar to make life easier.
I try to reduce burdens by showing short-cuts.
I usually incorporate the use of DVD showing recordings of French television or films, mostly with French sub-titling.

Our daughter has found him good to work with and feels that he has explained certain things in a way that she can now better understand them.
Early days yet but a good start.
