Charlotte (GCSE Student)


Jenn was my tutor during my GCSE years and helped me with my English studies. She helped me to understand complex ideas and I felt much more confident approaching my exams. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a tutor who will inspire and support exam success.


Haicha (French Student)


This year my school organised an amazing 5 day road trip to England. We visited Chester, Manchester, Liverpool and Coventry. My friend and I were lucky to be welcomed by Iain, Jenn and her family – I enjoyed every second I spent there.


Ozlem (French Student)


My stay in our tour home was very good and instructive. I had everything I wanted. There was Wifi available so we could communicate with our parents. Jenn, Iain and the family were very cool and they speak a lot with the students. So, I recommend a stay in this family.


Jordan (Alegerian Student)


I was able to practise my English with Jenn – she was kind and open minded and over dinner we talked about everything and nothing. I really appreciated the lovely meals and chats with the family. Jenn was like a second mum! Being in a hotel doesn’t come close to staying with a family.
