Dennise C

My name is Dennise, and I am married to Ian and we have three adult children, who have left home and have their own families.
For the past 10 years I have been mentoring / training / teaching and also accommodating young people in my home, from 3 months to several years. Presently I have a teenage boy who has been living with us for 8 years and is a part of our family. More recently I have been hosting young people from various European countries and have enjoyed exchanging lessons on culture / interests / customs / food etc. I live near the world famous Wembley stadium, and also Harrow School, where I teach 6th Form boys, to prepare them for university. We are a family who enjoy getting together to eat, play games, going to the theatre and visiting the sights of London!

 Family information

I live with my husband Ian, who is in his 60’s and enjoys playing tennis, and also plays the guitar. We have a foster son (2000) and he enjoys playing football, playing on his Xbox and going to the cinema. I have a granddaughter (2001) who loves fashion and music. I have a grandson (1998) who plays in a band and loves music. They live close to us and visit our home weekly.
Finally, I enjoy swimming, running, shopping and going to the theatre. I enjoy keeping fit and staying healthy. I am a member of a gym that I attend three times a week. I have an interest in food and nutrition and enjoy trying out different cuisines. My husband Ian enjoys teaching and playing tennis. He encourages the students to participate and gives them some coaching lessons too. Bowling is another activity we enjoy as a family. We occasionally have family quiz night, and have lots of fun involving our students to have a go!

About the teacher’s accommodation

Our home is located on a dead end street, and in a quiet residential crescent. The area reflects a multi-cultural ethos in cuisine / people / faiths.
We offer student/s a ground floor twin room that overlooks the back garden. It is bright, clean and cheery. The room has a TV and wi-fi. There is also a private bathroom next door to the room, that the student can have for their sole use.

About the local area

We live a 10-minute car ride away from the world famous Wembley Stadium, where not just football matches takes place but also where celebrities from the Pope to Beyonce, Madonna and Michael Jackson have been. The newly built Wembley Designer Outlet is next door to the stadium and has a 9 cinema complex and a wide range of shops/restaurants to enjoy. Harrow School, where Winston Churchill was one of the most famous students, is about 15 min bus ride. We have leisure centres in walking distance of our home, where students can engage in various sporting activities.
We have a RAF museum within 20 minutes bus ride. Within walking distance are places of worship with beautiful architecture, culture and history attached to its beauty.
