Hello! Having taught English in Argentina, Uruguay, Hungary and Spain, I love teaching and meeting people from all over the world. My family and I would love to welcome students into our home and town. I live in a typical, pretty, small British town of Princes Risborough. Here we are surrounded by a beautiful countryside, where we can go on lovely walks.

About the teacher’s accommodation

My house is comfortable and cosy. The student will have a room that overlooks our big garden. The bathroom (shower facilities) will be shared, but the student can choose to have private access to the downstairs toilet. Our house is located 5 minutes away from the train station which has a direct line to London. We are also within walking distance of the village that has typical British pubs and restaurants. The area is surrounded by countryside.

About the local area

Princes Risborough is a typical, pretty small English town. It offers a great countryside for hiking, walking and you can even rent a bike. If you like horses there is also a Horse Trust nearby. It is very easy to travel to Oxford from my town. Here we can visit the famous university buildings, take a boat along the river, go to museums, art galleries or/and the theatre.
