Approximate Location

Louise is a well-qualfied and experienced tutor of English on a one-to-one basis.  She has enjoyed a career as a teacher in Language Schools in London and as a private English tutor in Madrid.   Louise also flew Cabin Crew for Emirate Airlines and lived in Dubai before having her family.  Louise has taught students of many different nationalities, ages and professions.  She specialises in teaching a full range of Homelingua language courses including: General English for all ages, Examination Preparation courses, and Business and Professional courses.

Louise lives with her husband and two sons in a spacious and comfortable converted barn.  Her home is in a rural location set in the countryside, and is just a 15 minute walk to the village centre, where there is a regular bus service to nearby Leamington Spa.  There are lakes and woodland walks to enjoy adjacent to the house.  Louise's parents and sister live nearby and Louise's students regularly meet her extended family members. 

The students room in Louise's house is comfortable and well-furnished and provides a place where students can have privacy at any time.

Louise is interested in running, tennis, photography, cooking, scuba diving and travel.  She also regulary goes horse riding with her friends.  Louise is currently in training for a 42 mile walk she is doing this summer to raise money for the local school.

The family has one cat, two fish-tanks and four chickens. 

Louise prepares a personalised intensive English course for each student, adapted to the specific skills and language areas they wish to focus on. Students may wish to improve their speaking and listening skills, for instance, or their pronunciation, writing or grammar, or some other area. As a specialist in one-to-one English home tuition, Louise can ensure that the course gives in-depth coverage and practice of precisely these target areas so that progress is maximised.

A Homelingua course is also much more than just a language course: it is a total immersion course. In addition to receiving intensive one-to-one tuition, students are integrated into the daily life of Louise and her family, including, for instance, sharing family meals, visiting friends, shopping or participating in various outings. This exposure to natural, everyday English is a unique feature of the Homelingua experience and students often find that it dramatically improves both their language skills and their confidence in communicating in English. It also offers a warm and in-depth experience of the British way of life.
