Family information

I am a widow and live alone but my son lives not far away. My daughter and grandchildren are abroad. I do not have any other family but many friends and connections with other language teachers and schools in Cambridge. I have a lovely, friendly cat! My interests include travel, cinema and playing scrabble. I play tennis and there is a court just minutes from my house, where particularly in the summer, I play regularly. I would be very happy to have students join me for games! I enjoy going to good movies and am a member of a Picturehouse in Cambridge which prospective students might find interesting to frequent with me.
