Tyrone B

I particularly enjoy teaching one to one and love to help people achieve their goals and dreams. There is no better feeling than when a student reaches that ‘eureka’ moment! I enjoy sharing my home and culture with people from other cultures. I speak Spanish and French. Before I became a home stay teacher, I worked in IT, developing distributed web applications on both server and client-side scripting.

About the teacher’s accommodation

My home is a semi-detached, four bedroom house in the small town of Peacehaven. A bus passes the house which goes to the centre of the city of Brighton (just 17 minutes). You will find some shops and supermarkets on Peacehaven High Street. The house is very close to the sea and near lovely countryside.

About the local area

Brighton is a very busy, thriving city. Top of the list of things to see is the Pavilion, a 18th century home built by King George IV. Its architecture is unique. The city is a thriving place culturally, with theatres, cinemas, museums, art galleries and musical venues. For those who like to shop, Brighton has big stores and many quaint, independent shops in the area known as The Lanes. Gastronomically, there is a range of restaurants to suit all tastes. It is nice to walk along the promenade and pier and enjoy the beach in summer.
Places of historical interest in the area include the ancient castles at Lewes and Arundel; the Roman palace at Fishbourne; and a number of stately homes. It is well worth visiting the nearby, attractive coastal city of Chichester. It is a charming place and things to see include a 1,000 year old cathedral.
Brighton is a short train journey from London so it is easy to make a day trip to see the attractions of the capital (about 60 minutes).
