Husna G


Myself and my husband are both local secondary school teachers, who live in the delightful market town of Witney, on the edge of the Cotswolds and close to Oxford. We are looking forward to helping students develop their English, whilst at the same time share some of our favourite places. Our children would like to learn about other countries and cultures too.

Family information

We are a family of five. Myself and my husband are both in our 40’s and have lived in our current house for 10 years. We have one daughter (2008) who enjoys ballet and being creative. Our eldest son (2009) likes Street Dance and Acting, our youngest son (2011) likes playing sport and spending time with his older brother and sister.
As a family, as well as participating in several clubs at weekends, we enjoy exploring our local area whether that is the local shops or the lovely countryside and towns and villages near to us.

Between us as a family we have lots of hobbies and interests. I attend sewing lessons and keep fit by going to the local gym or for runs. My husband plays football and coaches rugby and cricket, he also likes to explore the area around where we live on his bike, particularly in the summer.
My children all enjoy swimming and my boys play rugby, cricket and football. Any guest would be able to join in with us in these activities where possible.
