I love introducing students to Cambridge and all it has to offer. I am an enthusiastic, friendly and dedicated tutor.

About the teacher’s accommodation

We live in a wonderful location in the centre of Cambridge in a traditional Victorian terrace house. We have been refurbishing the entire house and it is light, airy and comfortable with my design flair throughout! Students have a bright room downstairs overlooking the garden with a desk for studying. We have a sunny secluded garden to the rear which is great for barbecues in the summer. We also have a lovely cat.

About the local area

I live just a 5-minute walk from the River Cam and the beautiful riverside parks of Jesus Green and Midsummer Common. It’s another short walk to the vibrant shopping centre, restaurants, museums and theatres of Cambridge, as well as the famous historic centre. From museums to punting, there is so much to do in this interesting city centre. It is a small compact centre, so very easy to explore. Nearby are the pretty Granchester Meadows and well known Orchard tea rooms as well as many riverside walks and nature reserves. Stately homes in the area include the grand Audley End and Wimpole Hall. London is less than an hour away by train. There are many possible activities you could do with us: punting, English afternoon tea, visiting the large selection of museums and places of historic interest, going to wine tastings, the theatre, cinema, nature walks as well as arts and crafts.

An afternoon guided history punting tour along the River Cam – Chauffeured Punting tour along the River Cam with a history guide. This is a very relaxing way to spend an afternoon, offering wonderful views of the historic buildings and gardens and plenty of information about the history of Cambridge and the University.
Cold drinks and sun hats in the summertime, or hot chocolate and blankets on our knees in wintertime. Blissful!
