I am a native-French speaker and an experienced language teacher and examiner. I tutor students of all ages, from primary school children to students taking their GCSE/A level/common scholarship examinations to undergraduates and adult learners wishing to learn French or Spanish from scratch or improve their existing level.
I help students working towards their GCSE and A level examinations consolidate their existing knowledge whilst expanding their vocabulary and grammar, thereby helping them to achieve higher grades as they gain a greater confidence in their ability to use all aspects of French in a supportive and friendly atmosphere.
My up to date experience as an examiner benefits A level students in all areas of their studies.
With adult learners, I build on my students` prior knowledge or teach them the language they need to be able to communicate confidently, when travelling and/or living in France or Spain, as most people realise the importance and enjoyment of being able to communicate with the people of the country in which they are spending a lot of time, which I fully understand, as a native French speaker living in England.
Availability: During the day/evenings/week-ends (if needed)
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have 25 years` experience in secondary schools teaching French to A level and Spanish to GCSE as well as tutoring and marking examination papers for one of the major examining boards. I also conduct speaking exams in schools(A level) and mark all aspects of the A level specification. I have taught in primary schools and after-school clubs.
I really enjoy seeing my students, whatever their age, gain confidence and pleasure in learning and speaking French/Spanish, make progress and improve their examination grades or use the language confidently during their holidays.
I am friendly, patient and aim at making my lessons fun and productive by using a variety of materials. I tailor my lessons to individual needs and provide regular worksheets, which I make to help students consolidate the vocabulary.
I tutor students at degree levels but also individuals who want to learn languages for pleasure or to help them communicate on holiday or when they stay in their second home.
I also deliver courses for the MOD

review(s) for Murielle.
Excellent preparation and positive, helpful attitude
Muriels was very reassuring and friendly, and I enjoyed our first lesson very much. I came home feeling enthusiastic and am looking forward to my next lesson.
very good teacher she has plenty of options up her sleeve and lots of inventive games to help you learn its a long time since I did any learning but she has managed to conqueor numbers past 20 with me - I am retired and its a long time since I learnt them. I think for any one younger she would be a marvellous teacher and you would pick up French (in my case) very quickly with her.
Murielle has been excellent - very approachable and friendly, generous with her time and resources and she really gave my daughter more confidence.

Although my son has only had 3 lessons, he has improved in confidence and therefore ability. Murielle is easy to talk to and makes my son look forward to French!
My daughter has really valued the sessions with Murielle and what is so lovely is to hear the laughter coming from the room as they chat away to each other in French and/or Spanish depending on the session. Clearly the sessions are enjoyable for my daughter and they are proving worthwhile as I see her confidence grow along with her improved test results. Very pleased!
Very good, will use her again
Tutors Response :
Thank you for your feedback Richard. Jane is a pleasure to teach and has a natural ability to learn the language which makes teaching her very rewarding.
excellent-makes learning spanish easy and enjoyable
Just had my first lesson and really, really enjoyed it. I was very nervous before I went in but Murielle was very welcoming. I felt I learnt a lot in my first lesson and the atmosphere was very supportive. I had been worried that I would be too shy to speak french in front of a native speaker but I really wasn`t an issue at all. Can`t wait for my next lesson!
