Teaching Qualifications and Experience

I have hosted foreign students in my home for over 20 years, and have even been a homestay student living with homestay families in other countries for over 2 years (Senegal and Mexico). I taught English in Japan for a year, and tutored English for several years in the USA. I love to travel, and believe living in a country is the best way to see it, and living with locals is the best way to learn a language!

I have also worked as a writer, editor, proofreader and publisher over the years, and love exploring language.

Hobbies and Interests

Travel is my favorite hobby. I love learning about other cultures, and seeing the natural beauty of our earth. I enjoy hiking, walking, kayaking. I enjoy reading, which is really like traveling and learning about people! I love spending time with my family and friends, and making new friends.

Excursions and Local Attractions

Austin is a beautiful city in the heart of Texas, with a river flowing through town that the locals call a lake. There is kayaking or canoeing on the lake, and miles of walking/jogging paths along both sides of the river.

Austin is the "Live Music Capital" of the USA, with many free concerts, and live music playing at restaurants. It is also the home of "SXSW" - South by Southwest, and ACL - Austin City Limits, which are both music festivals that last for days with multiple concerts on stages.

If you like shopping, there are several outlets malls and regular malls, as well as some funky shopping areas with very unique items. "Keep Austin Wierd" is the local saying, encouraging people to shop at the unique local businesses instead of just the chain stores.

Restaurants abound in and around Austin. You can see pictures of my favorite restaurant at www.oasis-austin.com.

And when it is hot in summer, the swimming holes or Barton Springs pool at Zilker Park will cool you off!
