My daughter who is doing A level French was really struggling before we found Michel. He has really motivated her and has made lessons more interesting . She has 2 hour lessons but she is surprised how quick the time goes. I would highly recommend Michel. I can see he gets pleasure helping his pupils make progress. My daughter's accent has also greatly improved with Michel's help.
I have enjoyed Michel's teaching immensely. I would very much recommend Michel to other students- he's really quite adaptable and has used some creative approaches to teaching which was really helpful for me.
I am currently studying A level French. I am very pleased to be able to say that my French has improved more than I ever thought it would, since starting tuition with Michel. In just over one month, I have improved by two whole grades, which has been evident from mock exam results at school. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with Michel because I do not feel embarrassed to ask seemingly simple questions, which I feel I cannot ask in my class at school.
I've just received my results and I'm very happy to tell you that I got an A for my French I-GCSE. Thank you for all your help because it really made a difference!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the sessions, they really helped me get a high grade for speaking and an overall A. Thank you so much -
Thank you for your help. I got A* in my French oral!
