Information about Muriel
I am a French national and I have been living in the UK for 22 years.
I am enthusiastic, gregarious, trustworthy and dedicated.
My French qualification is Brevet de Technicien Supérieur, Option Secrétariat Trilingue. It is the equivalent to a HND level 4 to be a Director`s PA with languages. The subjects I passed were commercial English, commercial German, commercial French, economy, business studies and law.
Availability: Due to the current situation I no longer tutor from home.
I am however available online (Zoom or Skype) every day apart from Saturdays and Sundays.
Please contact me and we can discuss what suits you. Thank you.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have always had a passion for languages.
I was just over 14 when I passed an English exam just for fun outside school context. It was organised by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry. I was really proud of myself, especially because all the other candidates were adults.
Since then, my love for languages has never ceased.
At school I also learnt German and Italian and in my free time I was teaching English to a French girl.
As an adult, I worked for 18 years in my home country as a PA at executive level in international companies. I have never worked for a French company to make sure I would practise my languages.
Then, I moved to the UK in 1999.
Shortly after settling here, I was taken on in a secondary school where I worked for 10 years in the Modern Foreign Languages Department.
I have taught all classes, from Y7 to Y11 on a one to one basis, in small groups or in charge of a full class.
I was also testing, assessing and grading students on all four skills.
Amongst other things, I tailored French lessons for a Y9 Gifted and Talented student who had never studied French before, teaching him twice a week for six months, in order for him to catch up with the rest of his class.
I offered support and advice on students coursework (in English and MFL).
For Y10s and 11s I produced a full booklet of questions in accordance with the topics in both the French and German textbooks.
I also suggested two types of answers, one for the majority of the class, another one for the most able.
I taught French grammar to top sets Y11.
During Easter holidays I held sessions of French revision classes for Y11s.
I was also very active at primary level.
I was in charge of Y6 classes coming to secondary school for induction days where I delivered one lesson in French and one in Italian.
I also run two French Clubs in a primary school for Y2`s and Y6s children where I was introducing French through games and songs.
Teaching is about communicating, making the lesson interesting and encouraging the student.
This is why I adapt my teaching to the students, help them gain confidence and improve their linguistic skills in order to achieve their goals.

Feedback For Muriel (3)
Muriel is patient and very helpful for my son. She gives feedback after each lesson.
Tutors Response :
Thank you very much for your feedback Chun.
Im trying my best so that Ray reaches a Y9 level comes September. Its not easy to catch up on 2 years but Im hopeful well get there.
Muriel helped my daughter revise for her GCSE German. It was extremely helpful and really well targeted to what she needed. Muriel was encouraging even when she had to go back to basics and made a significant difference in a relatively short space of time.
Tutors Response :
Thank you very much for your feedback Corinne.
I tried my best and what helped is that your daughter is a very pleasant young girl. She is very shy but we soon came to joke about it.
I wish Pippa all the best for the second part of her German exams and I`m looking forward to you telling me how well she performed.
Tutors Response :
Thank you Lucy. I am very pleased if Jade benefitted from the tuitions. I hope she will pass the French GCSE (as well as the other subjects) with flying colours.
