Teacher introduction

Tewin is a very friendly village, it is popular place for cyclists and walkers, tourists visit to see the architecture. It is very close to Welwyn Garden City and London. It is a 30 minute drive from Luton. I have taken students on trips to London, Oxford and Cambridge. I am an experienced teacher of 24 years and have taken specific training to be able to teach English as a Foreign Language. I enjoy walking and going to the gym regularly. I enjoy writing and I have published a book.
Teacher home details
We live in a 4 bedroom home with a large garden which is sometimes used to grow vegetables in the summer. You will have a large double room with a desk and wardrobe. If you prefer to have a private bathroom , one can be made available for your sole use. You can walk to the village shop and a much longer walk to Welwyn Garden City. You can also walk to the train station which will take you into London in 30 minutes.
Teacher qualifications

Welwyn Garden City is where we go for other leisure activities, it is 5 minutes from Tewin. It has a swimming pool in the leisure centre, it also has a cinema and theatre, roller skating and a roller disco hall. The teatre streams live performances from London which is very convenient. It has a good size shopping centre and an outdoor market some Saturdays.
Teacher family
I live with my husband who is an engineer and loves gadgets! I also live with a very old friendly greedy dog, a black labrador retriever. My daughters who are in their 20s sometimes stay but do not live at home most of the time. They are dance fans and can name nearly all the musicals ever created! We have a number of friends from church and there are many activities for young people to do.
