I am a teacher living in London who has been a home stay teacher for a number of years. Home stay is a great method to learn English because I can concentrate on your specific needs. Very rapidly you will see a rapid improvement in your language skills and confidence in speaking. I have friends and family living locally who often visit the house so you will have many opportunities to practise your English. Before I became home stay teacher I was a primary school teacher.

About the teacher’s accommodation

I live in Pinner, a suburb of north west London. The house is located 10 minutes from the centre of Pinner where you will find shops, eating places, and pubs. Although it is part of London, Pinner retains a ‘villagey’ feel. There are two big parks where you can go for a walk, cycle or jog. There are places to have a drink in the parks and sometimes there are musical events.

About the local area

It is a short walk to the underground railway from the house (Pinner station is 10 minutes and Rayner’s Hill is 15 minutes). The journey into central London takes about 30 minutes. There are so many attractions to visit – from the London Eye, to Madame Tussauds, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the National Art Gallery ; the Natural History Museum and the London Aquarium. Outside London, you can visit the pretty city of St Albans and see the Roman remains; ancient cathedral and medieval architecture. Windsor is another attractive place with its quirky shops, good eating places and castle which is the largest and oldest inhabited castle in Europe. The cities of Oxford and Cambridge are other options. You can visit the university colleges; explore the excellent museums; and go punting on the river.
