About Us
Meet the owners! Andy and Kate Simpson welcome you to their international family. Kate is a Santa Clarita local, and Andy is from Blackpool, England. Their love of traveling and culture brought them together as they met while working aboard a cruise ship. Together they traveled the world, lived briefly in Las Vegas, and have now settled in Santa Clarita. Kate's passion for language and culture led her to earn a Master's degree in English Language Learning, become a college ESL instructor, and direct a private international language school. In 2015, through a College of the Canyons high school pathway program, the couple had the opportunity to live and teach English in China for a year. Many of their Chinese high school students will continue their studies at College of the Canyons. Kate and Andy have made life long friendships all over the world,  and they hope that sharing your life with an international student will be as transformative for you as it has been for them. Andy and Kate believe in the power of cultural exchange, so they are grateful to contribute to cultural awareness and be part of the international community in Santa Clarita.
