About
Michelle C


I am a teacher of English language. Before I became a home stay teacher, I worked as an English teacher in secondary schools in the local area. I am a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who really enjoys the way home stay teaching enables me to meet so many interesting people from all over the world. I take great pleasure in planning excursions to places of interest as well in planning interesting and challenging lessons.

About the teacher’s accommodation


I live in a detached house in a quiet residential road. One can walk into the city centre (20 minutes) or take the bus which passes nearby. There is a garden to enjoy in summer. It is nice to walk along the canal which is not far from the house.

About the local area


I live in the city of Bath which is a world heritage site. It is a lovely city in south west England and most well known for its Roman Baths and18th century architecture. There is much to do and see as the city has museums, a theatre, a cinema as well as good shops and restaurants. There is a leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym and tennis courts are located not far from the house. One can go cycling along the canal and enjoy the city parks. The city has a rugby team which plays in the national league. It is a short journey to the nearby city of Bristol which has a range of amusements and and places of historical interest to visit. It is possible to make a day trip by train to London to see all the attractions.
