My name is Muriel and I am a French national. I am a very experienced teacher of French and I have been teaching it for well over 20 years in schools and colleges in England. I thoroughly enjoy teaching my own language and I love helping others discover a new language. I am good at motivating students and at explaining how the French language works. I find it very uplifting when a student suddenly "gets it" and can make excellent progress! I can teach French at any level as well as any aspects or skills relating to it. I have a wide experience of coaching students for exams, business, holidays and conversation.
