About ALTétude 

myriam gelling altetude french tutoring


My name is Myriam and I am a French citizen who moved to the UK in 1998 near Chester (Cheshire), the year France won the Football World Cup – I missed all the celebrations!


No regrets though - this very same year, I met my British husband and we have now two beautiful bilingual children.

I started teaching children in French supplementary schools on Saturdays and I enjoyed it so much that I moved onto giving private tuition. It was in 2017 that I decided to found ALTétude French Tutoring after getting lots of encouragement from friends, family and parents who had used my services.

My approach to teaching French is a mixture of French and British techniques, following both curriculums, as I want my students to build their confidence in the capability of navigating through the French language.

Merci et bonne journée !
