  • Description


    I'm James, 44, originally from Ireland. I really enjoy teaching English.. It would be great to have a guest in my spare room to join in with what I do here and perhaps in Italy too as I go there quite often.

    I am responsible for old buildings here and there and could do with the help and company of someone. I am open minded and get on with young and old, so check Margate out online and see if you might like to spend some time beside the seaside.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    With many friends from abroad and having had plenty of visitors from around the world, I can promise a great English experience. I love conversation and will teach English, business and maintenance skills.
    I travel quite a bit and am happy to bring people along.

  • Help


    Like everyone, I have just gotten behind on my chores both at home and at work, a little help with paperwork, decorating and cleaning and general help in my home, and on some local projects, there is plenty to do with plenty of variety.

    I've also gone and bought 2 old houses in Italy, so if you are up for a trip, its highly likely.

    So exiting times if you want to join in and have an adventure.
