    Hi, Helena here. I live on the outskirts of cork city ( with good train connections into cork). The house is a 4 bed house with a sunny aspect. Walking time to train station <10mins. Our family consists of myself,my husband, 2 daughters aged 11&8 and a dog called Jackson. Cork city is a small vibrant city with a good mix of cultures.

Education is very important to me, I think I would be a good and patient teacher of English ( an assumption on my part
