Teacher introduction
Hello, my name is Ann-Marie, I live with my husband and our fun-loving daughter (born 2005). I have worked as a teacher since 2008 and we have been a host family teaching English to people from across the world since 2013.
Teacher home details
We have one single room and one twin room (in pictures) available for you both with sea views. We have a lounge dining room which leads to a pretty garden and children’s games. It takes 5-10 mins to walk to the lovely park or the town centre. The bus is 5 mins walk away and there are buses along the coast every 15 mins. We have one bathroom.
Teacher qualifications text
I have a CELTA qualification and various music certificates. I also spent two years in teacher training. I also enjoy teaching guitar and music. We enjoy welcoming English language students into our home because we enjoy learning about different countries and cultures. I also feel that each student brings something fresh and new to our home.
Teacher about the local area
We live in the relaxed, coastal town of Newhaven, East Sussex nestled between the cosmopolitan city of Brighton and Hove, the long beaches of Eastbourne and the quaint, historic English town of Lewes. Newhaven has a small town centre, a marina, some beautiful coastal walks, pretty parks and a port with regular ferry crossings to Dieppe. There are also many things to see and do in the local area. These include the outstandingly beautiful white cliffs of the Seven Sisters (the first of which can be seen from your bedroom window), the metropolitan city of Brighton offers a cinema, bowling, Lazerquest, shopping, excursions, museums, etc. We are also very close to the beautiful green countryside and the South Downs. A short drive away are the quaint little English towns of Alfriston and Lewes and London is just an hour away by train.
Teacher family
My husband and I are in our late 40s. We like living near the country because the air is cleaner and we can relax. We have very friendly neighbours in our street. We also have parents who visit from time to time. We like to walk and drive to local historic sites and parks. However there are so many interesting places to visit in the South Downs that there will be plenty for us to do on your arrival.

Teacher hobbies and interests
In the evenings, when we have younger students, we tend to go to the park, have a walk along the beach, go to the swimming pool, play in the garden or play computer games in the living room. When we have adult students we often go for a walk, to the pub or sit and relax together. Students are also free to relax in their rooms and to prepare for the next day’s lessons.
