Ian and myself live in a pretty, comfortable house in a beautiful coastal town called Lymington, opposite the Isle of Wight and on the edge of the New Forest.
I have been teaching English to students from all over the world.
Students can enjoy learning English by being part of our family. Students can discover cities such as Salisbury and Winchester, even a day trip by train to London.
