Central England


Hospitality and a passion for teaching is why I love welcoming students into our home. It is so rewarding to see the progress a student can make in a very short time. Suffolk is a lovely and historic part of England and our village is midway between Cambridge and the Suffolk coast. I like to offer a relaxed but focused learning environment with comfort, good food and a warm welcome.
