I love to welcome students to my home and enrich their understanding of English culture.
Meet some of our Home Tutors
We have a wide selection of home tutors at SUL so we can always find a good match for each of our students, with a host that meets their preferences and share similar interests. From families with children to retired couples, those without pets or those with horses, SUL will supply the most suitable tutor.
SUL home tutors are friendly, welcoming and consistently supported by our SUL academic team. They are only selected to work for SUL after a personal interview at home. We make appropriate checks before accepting a tutor and their family, rechecking on a regular basis.
Valerie lives in a small village in the Herefordshire countryside with beautiful views across to the Welsh mountains.
She enjoys cycling, playing the piano and learning French. Having lived in both Africa and Asia, Valerie and her husband now enjoy holidaying in France.
Students who stay with Valerie have plenty to do with medieval market towns and villages to visit including Ludlow with its 11th century castle, the historic city of Hereford and Worcester where visitors can take a river boat ride.
Alan lives with his wife, teenage children and friendly dog in Plymouth close to The Hoe with breathtaking views across Plymouth Sound.
With experience of teaching in primary, secondary and international schools Alan now spends much of his time creating ceramics and sculptures.
The family enjoy outdoor life including walking, cycling, swimming and kayaking.
The more the student puts in during their stay with us the more they get out.
Deb has been hosting and teaching international students for over 11 years. She is an English teacher and has worked at a secondary school.
Deb and her two teenage children live in a beautiful house near the old town of Malmesbury. Deb likes walking her little dog, writing poetry and reading.
As a family they enjoy swimming, walking, and visiting local places of interest e.g. Roman Cirencester, the city of Bath or the SS Great Britain in Bristol.
Hosting and teaching is like painting rainbows on the landscape of life.
