Teacher introduction

My wife and I provide a supportive and friendly home to any students that come to stay with us. I believe this is the most important consideration when students are far from home. The room is very well presented, comfortable warm and clean. The lessons I provide are aimed to be focussed, in context and interesting. I have even been known to make grammar fun. Cambridge is an amazing place with historic buildings, museums and places of interest in the city and also in the surrounding areas so that the trips I organise are the ones you would choose yourself. I look forward to meeting you.
Teacher home details
We live in the suburb of Cherry Hinton which has a busy high st and a large supermarket within walking distance. The cinema, bowling alley and ice skating rink are only a short trip away. The room is light and airy, it is situated in a new extension to the house. The extension has its own dedicated, shared, bathroom and shower.
Teacher qualifications
I have spent 15 years as a manager in industry, in this time I gained a first class honours degree in management. Since changing career I have gained the internationally recognised CELTA certificate in English teaching.
Teacher about the local area
There are a wealth of things to do in and around Cambridge. There is a large swimming pool, compete with slides! Two multi screen cinemas locally, 10 museums, countryside walks, amazing shopping and lots of historic buildings and landmarks in the centre.
Teacher family
My wife and I have both just turned 50. We live in a large house and so when we welcome students they help to fill it. We have a circle of family all within a couple of miles and we socialise often. I also have friends that are like family who we see often.
Teacher how to get here by public
Cambridge railway station is 2 miles from home and is accessible by frequent bus or taxi. The nearest airport is Stansted which is 30 minutes away. The large London airports, Gatwick and Heathrow are around two hours travel. Collection on arrival can be arranged as required.
Teacher hobbies and interests
My main hobby is karate, I am a master and help to run a club in the area. I enjoy all sports and go to the gym. I also regularly run…slowly..i have completed three half marathons so far. I enjoy life and still appreciate the beauty of Cambridge whenever I visit the historic centre. I would invite any student living with me to enjoy any of these activities.
