English tutoring for kids in Bern?

Hi

Does anyone know of English classes for bilingual (English-German, or English-anything, I guess) kids in Bern? My 7 year old speaks excellent English but given that he goes to a Swiss school it's not really progressing as it should, and not keeping up with the reading and writing he should be doing in English at his age. Am looking for something in the city, once a week in the afternoon, ideally in a small group. Any ideas if this is something Embassies offer?

Thanks for any tips!
Gretta

This organisation was always "manned" by English ladies, most were qualified teachers in the UK, I think it is exactly what you are looking for, http://www.esp-bern.ch/

My kids go to the English Speaking Playgroup. They love it, and, as Sbrinz said, they are all qualified teachers.

It's especially good for my 6 year-old, who was used to reading and writing in the UK, but gets none that in Kindergarten here.

Highly recommended!

Another idea, though I'm not sure they still do it, is that Stauffacher's English book department does/did a kid's book reading session on Saturday mornings.
