Tell me about some of your current students.
A young Italian lady is working hard for her Cambridge Advanced exam, whilst living as an au pair in London.

A Japanese visitor lives in Cambridge and has lessons with me in the company where he works monthly, and Skype lessons twice weekly. The lessons help him in his work, and to adapt to his culture. The Japanese students stay for 5 months and usually achieve promotion when they go back to their head office in Japan.

A young French lady( only 13yrs) will stay with me for two weeks this summer. She is a Beginner in English.
