Teaching Qualifications and Experience
I have a Bachelors and a Masters Degree plus two teaching certificates, one of which is for teaching English to people for whom English is not their mother tongue.
I have taught English for over 20 years to all ages and all levels. Most of my teaching has been in England but I have also taught in Africa and Japan.
I have recent experience of home-stay programmes and have received very positive feedback from the students who have stayed at our Southport home.
I am happy to teach any age and at any level. I have considerable experience in business and can offer Business English if required.

Excursions and Local Attractions
Southport is a stylish seaside resort with many shops, clubs, pubs and restaurants. (Emperor Louis-Napoleon is reputed to have used its famous Lord Street as a model for the boulevards of Paris.) The Arts Centre is currently undergoing a multi-million pounds re-development. The beach is one of the longest in England and is perfect for those who like walking. Southport is the 'golf capital' of England with many top quality courses close by. We live within walking distance of the town centre and railway station.
The great commercial, cultural, sporting and entertainment cities of Liverpool and Manchester are easily accessible. Liverpool is closest (trains run every 15 minutes). Whether you are interested in art, theatre, clubing, sport, exploring museums or historic buildings, Liverpool has them all.
AND, of course, it is the home of the Beatles!
It is truly cosmopolitan city. Liverpudlians' good humour is legendary and for centuries, they have welcomed people from all over the world.
