Our qualified English teachers

Tracy S

Tracy lives by the sea on the south coast of England in the beautiful town of Bournemouth. She has travelled a lot and has studied languages so she understands the difficulties students face.

Tracy’s lessons are fun, multi-sensory and tailored to the interests of the students. If you are interested in Harry Potter, then Tracy can make specific classes. Other activities are football, dance and for adults literary, cultural, culinary and job specific language.

Tracy’s house has large bedrooms with wash basins in them. The garden is lovely to sit in when the sun shines.It takes about half an hour to walk to the town centre and beach. At the end of her road is a golf course which is open to anyone to play, and on the other side there is the football ground and big park including skate board area.

Being by the sea means that there is always something to do and somewhere to go. Other activities include surfing, trampoline and swimming. In the summer holidays we have live bands, fish and chips and fire-works on the beach. There are many cafes, restaurants and pubs along with cinema, ten pin bowling, laser quest and a local museum along with shows and our own Symphony orchestra.

Lorraine

Lorraine lives in Northern Ireland with her husband Carlton and three daughters: Harriet is 10, Charlotte is 13 and Robyn is 14. Lorraine and her family have been hosting international visitors since 2012. As well as being a fully trained English teacher, Lorraine has also had additional training in Child Protection, First Aid and Food Hygiene.

The children of the family are very musical, and you may end up with an evening of traditional music if you like the wonderful blend of British and Irish culture. The village of Bleary is in walking distance, and the beautiful Bally Dougan Pottery and gift shop/café will be a great place to walk to on a summer’s day. Students can expect to visit the City and the very special Tollymore Forest which is a favourite for International filmmakers.

The family do lots of activities including rollerblading, skateboarding, basketball and badminton. One trip could be to have a picnic or barbeque in Lurgan Park, and the possibility of the Lazy River in Lisburn or camping and mountain biking in the forest. After all this grab your swimming costume and get in the family hot tub! Two twin bedrooms are available that share their own bathroom in a private part of the house.

Ruth

Ruth and her daughter Elizabeth live in Northolt, West London. They are both qualified, experienced English teachers. Elizabeth loves animals and currently works for an animal rescue charity. They are both also British Museum Guides and regularly conduct guided tours for tourists around the exhibits.

Their home is near a large park and animal sanctuary which offers plenty of activities and space for children to run and play safely. Central London Museums and attractions are only 20-minutes ride on the London Underground.

They regularly go bowling, swimming, to the cinema and both love cooking, baking cakes and making homemade natural soap which they sell at the local market once a month. At home, they have 2 cats and a hedgehog.

Activities include: climbing, exploring, cycling, scootering, visiting historical houses, castles and gardens. Tracy and her family love being outdoors and being busy.

Nick

Nick lives with his wife Edurne in Darwin in the North of England in a semi-detached house. Their pretty back garden is great for studying, relaxing in the hammock next to the pond and barbecuing. They don’t have any pets. Their house is only about a mile and a half from the centre of town.

Darwin is known as a pretty market town surrounded by the West Pennine moors. Manchester is 45 minutes away by train. From their house you can go on a country walk combined with lunch at a country pub, which is about 45 minutes each way. There are many activities nearby, including golf, tennis, swimming, ice skating, theatre, cycling, sailing, canal walks, decent shopping and 3 superb Victorian parks. Unfortunately, the football team is rubbish!

Students will find Nick a good conversationalist, inventive with classroom activities and with a sound knowledge of grammar. He says that he knows how to create a lesson linking a variety of activities.
