Catherine L

My name is Catherine, Cathy for short. I have hosted for many years, while my children were young. I live near Worthing in a lovely convenient position near the village shops/amenities and close to the town/beach. It is approximately a mile away (walking distance) and the train station is a 15 minute-walk with trains to Brighton and London.

Academic information

I have hosted for many years, teaching since 2005 at various Summer Schools.  I have a  Trinity College London CertTESOL Level 5 teaching Certificate which is internationally recognised.  This year I taught in Italy for a week, which was a wonderful experience.

I like teaching beyond phones, tablets and computers, bringing out their own ideas and creative qualities, which I believe we all have and strive to keep alive.

Courses taught

Family information

It is just myself and my eldest son called Thomas, who is 34 and enjoys reading, running, computing and films.

I love my tennis and try to play it 2-3 times a week. I am the Secretary of the Ferring Tennis Club and welcome new members as and when.  I like walking, swimming occasionally, and I belong to a Creative Writing Group.  I have had several poems published.  I like cooking and listening to music.

About the teacher’s accommodation

I live in a two double bed roomed flat with my own front door, 7 minutes walk to Broadwater shops and 20 mins walk into Worthing town.  It has a shared bathroom with bath/shower.

About the local area

There is a swimming pool in Worthing town  and a tennis club in Ferring as mentioned above which I go by car to.  There is Broadwater Manor ground which is immediately opposite, where one can run around a running track for free  and watch Cricket matches, if that is their interest. There is a bowling alley, two cinemas and two theatres in the centre of Worthing.  There is a museum in Worthing and Chichester is a lovely place to visit for its Cathedral/shops and The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum is not far from there which incorporates historical houses and special events which occur throughout the year.  Brighton boasts a beautiful historical  Palace (the Royal Pavilion) the lanes and the Pier.
