French for adults, designed for Parents !
Top-Tutorat provides academic tutoring to students from preschool to university. We also support parents by offering courses and workshops that will not only help them learn French, but more importantly, give them the tools to better support their children.
What we offer:
- We have 2 sets of offerings for parents: French Courses and Workshops
- French Courses include 2 to 3 hours of instruction per week. Participants may register for blocks of weeks at a time (6 weeks, 12 weeks), or for the full course (18 weeks).
- Workshops will be held on specific dates. Participants can register on a per-workshop basis. Scroll below or see calendar to discover which topics will be covered.
- Teaching content will link up to your child’s curriculum, so that you can make connections with what they learn in school, and be better equipped to help them with schoolwork
The instruction method will vary from traditional teacher-led classes to some classes built specifically around your questions and areas of interests.
Our French courses will be taught in small groups (max. 6 ppl) so that each participant can get the most out of every session.
