Teacher introduction

Hi! My name is Samantha, my friends and family call me Sam. I am a native English speaker with a very clear English accent. In the past I worked as a Health Inspector, a very exciting experience with many funny stories. I became an English Tutor after my 3 children went to university. Education is my passion, I believe life is a learning curve. As an adult have learnt sailing, horse riding, speaking Spanish and now I am learning the violin. I would love to offer my home in Central London and my experience to students. So much is on offer here, no car journeys or hidden expenses for day trips. Everything is within easy reach; Museums, city farms with fantastic animals and outdoor table tenis, ice scating, horse stables, cinema

Family information

My 3 children all attended university and now live independently. My eldest son lives in London and is a cook and also performs regularly as a stand up comedian. My daughter lives in Essex and works as a Paralegal. The middle son is completing a training course with the Merchant Navy and has sailed around the world. I come from a large family and have cousins all over the world. I currently live alone without pets in a charming house in London. I have many childhood friends close by and the student would be part of my very large extended network of family and friends.

I enjoy many hobbies, walking with a group, swimming, gardening on my allotment where everybody is very friendly. It would be fun for students to discovering the local area, it is so much fun. here in this part of London and the public transport is fantastic. We have beautiful parks, a variety of fantastic museums, farms, ice skating, horse riding, swimming and cinema.

About the teacher’s accommodation

Beautiful Victorian house in fashionable East London with accomodation for a student who would have a shower room/toilet and sink for their own personal use.The most amazing combination of city life with many green spaces, canals and even a small farm very close by. The neighbourhood is lovely and friendly

About the local area

A five minute walk from my house is a city farm with many animals and outdoor table tennis, a climbing and playing area which is all very poplular with local families and children. Even though I live in central London there is a lot of open space, rivers and you can see the Olympic Village from the 2012 Olympics from close by. It is a very colourful and diverse area and you will see how multi cultural Britain works so well in this neighbourhood. If the student is interested in sport, there is a football stadium, home to Leyton Orient Football Club within 10 minutes walk from the house which we could visit and see a game. Also, I have an allotment the student could visit, again within a ten minute walk, which is very friendly with local people who grow fruit and vegetables.
