I am a native French speaker, born and educated in Paris and graduated from the Sorbonne University,Paris. I have been living in England for over 30 years and I taught full-time at all levels as a qualified French teacher until January 2012 when I decided to devote myself to one to one tuition in which I have proved highly successful.
I believe that the most efficient way of learning other than total immersion is the one to one approach which has allowed me personally to enable the students willing to invest the extra time to progress exponentially, get motivated and achieve their potential.
I consider myself an extremely dedicated teacher, eager to see the students progress and enjoy themselves learning about French culture as the same time as they improve their command of the language.
Availability: Daytime on most days and most weekends. Evenings are all spoken for at the moment.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have been teaching French at KS3, KS4 and KS5 levels and to adults learners for around 30 years in total until four years ago when I retired from permanent full time teaching in order to devote myself to one to one tuition and to teaching Pilates which is my other great interest. To quote but two instances I am particular proud of, I will mention that I tutored my own son to passing his French G.C.S.E. with the top mark in the country, and his French A Levels with flying colours. As a result he graduated in French from Oxford University with a special mention. A few years ago, one of my A Level students whom I tutored privately obtained the top marks in the country in every module of the exam board she was following. In addition to this since I started teaching privately all of my private students performed well beyond expectation in accordance with the number of lessons they had attended. etc...

review(s) for Michele.
Michele was an excellent tutor who helped my son with his GCSE studies. She was exceptionally flexible, patient and very knowledgeable in her topic. I would certainly use her again and would recommend her as a tutor to others.
I have been very impressed with Michele`s commitment and support for my son in his preparation for French GCSE.
An excellent tutor who tailors her learning materials to the ability of the student and ensures the student understands all aspects of the language. I would highly recommend this kind and helpful tutor.
very cooperative and kind my daughter loves it
Michèle is an amazingly committed and engaging tutor. She tutored our eldest son to A level and is now tutoring our middle son at GCSE and we will most definitely use her with our youngest son too. She delivers an individualised service, she gets to know her students, she connects with them and makes the learning experience an enjoyable one. Michèle has been an invaluable support a top notch tutor who I highly recommend. Thank you Michèle .
Amazing tutor! Can`t get any better
In additional to being a good teacher, Michele is very responsible and has a wide range of teaching resources. My money has been very well spent.
Michèle is fantastic, my son achieved an A* in his GCSE French and that was largely due to her help and knowledge of what is required both for exam preparation and controlled assessments. Would highly recommend.
The enormous progress made with Michele was obvious straight after starting the sessions. She is a great tutor, who is clearly invested in helping her students get to where they want to be. In our case this was to fulfil a conditional offer for university and we couldn`t have done it without her help.
