I love teaching, learning and speaking languages and I have experience teaching both Business English and General English as well as Spanish. I have also worked in marketing and communications in the business and arts sectors. I really enjoy the one-to-one teaching/learning environment where I can respond to students’ individual language needs and interests.

Family information

I live with my husband Kevin – and our dog, Pip. When Kevin is not working or walking the dog he can usually be found in the kitchen as he is a keen cook. My two children are now grown-up and living away. I enjoy singing and playing music very much as well as going to concerts and to the theatre and the cinema. I also love exploring the countryside with our young dog and observing nature.

About the teacher’s accommodation

We live in an 17th-century thatched cottage in a small village in beautiful southwest Wiltshire where the counties of Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset meet.

It is a small community where everybody knows each other and we get together often. The surrounding hills and valleys – and the Wylye River – are great places to walk and cycle.

About the local area

The market town of Warminster is 6.5km away and we are within half an hour’s reach of the historic cities of Salisbury and Bath, both with a lively arts scene and plentiful shops, cafes and restaurants. Nearby are well-known attractions such as Stonehenge, Stourhead, Longleat House and Safari Park and Montecute House.
