What if the action is on someone else?

How would we say "Every morning, she wakes her brother up to go to school" or "you woke me up this morning"?

Hi Pattrice, 

Every morning, she wakes her brother up to go to school Tous les matins, elle réveille son frère pour aller à l'école

You woke me up this morning = Tu m'as réveillé(e) ce matin

Hope this helps!

Tu m'as réveillé ce matin. -- You woke me up this morning.

Je me suis réveillé. -- I woke up.

(Note that in both cases it is assumed that the speaker is male. Otherwise an extre "e" would need to be appended to both participles).
