Nikki & Tim Cowell
I enjoy working with young people from all over the world and take great satisfaction watching them develop personally and helping them achieve the maximum benefits from the opportunities that arise during their stay.
I am keen for all students in our area to have a happy and productive visit and we like them to enjoy the experience of England and our culture. We are conscientious and treat the students like family, any decisions we make are for the long term benefit of the students.
In my spare time I like being with my family and my dogs. I love all animals, but especially my 8 dogs that vary in breed and size from a small Yorkshire Terrier up to a very large St Bernard.
