Welcome international students! I am a fun, female university professor (hold a Ph.D. degree, easily verifiable on the university website) in my 30’s who highly values education, diverse culture and life-long learning. I reside in a lovely house in Pleasant Hill and greatly enjoy hosting students from all over the world to exchange our cultures, help students achieve their academic goals and explore fun California lives.
Pleasant Hill is a very safe, quiet and beautiful city, 20-30miles east of San Francisco, offering perfect combination of beautiful nature and city life. Many professionals live here for pleasant family lives and commute to San Francisco. Within walking distance from the house, there is DVC (Diablo Valley College), College Park High School (great public high school), Starbucks, Super Target (grocery store + every item you need), many restaurants, fast food, and other retail stores. Within 2 miles, there is everything you need (e.g., major banks, post offices, grocery stores, shopping mall, department stores, buses, major highways).
<Hosting Offer>
Your living experience will be very pleasant, private, and educational. 1) In addition to practicing English conversation every day at home, I offer very unique benefits: University admissions essay or essay editing (once per month) help! I am currently hosting DVC students and helped their university admissions essays (all of them are accepted to UC Berkeley and UCLA and transferring to these schools in Fall 2014!) and DVC essay assignments (students’ essay grades got improved from D to A!). 2) In addition, if you do not have a car, I can provide transportation to school on Tuesdays/Thursdays, although you can walk to school (current DVC students living in the house walk to school ), for weekly grocery shopping, some mall shopping, and to BART station to go to San Francisco and airport (within 3 miles). 3) Continental breakfast is included and dinners can be added for a fee. 4) I can be a legal caregiver or guardian for a student under 18years old for school enrollment and parental roles. Additional charge is expected for this service.
<Your Room>
Fully furnished clean, private room (bed, desk, chair, bookshelf, dresser will be provided) with beautiful hardwood floor (much nicer than carpet). You will share a clean bathroom with two incoming DVC freshmen who will move in as of August 1st.
<Other Points>
Common areas (e.g., living room, kitchen, dining room) are also fully furnished and you are invited to use all the amenities. There is a washer and dryer in the house. The house gets good natural sunlight and is very energy efficient (keeps it cool during hot summer). Swimming Pool, Tennis Court and surrounding areas are maintained by professional management. The house has good size private front and back yard with lovely redwood trees, grapevines, lemon tree, and rosemary bush. Walking distance to a park.
Contact: Please email ( or call/text me at 1 (USA code) 415-571-1237 for any questions and/or showing. Thank you.
Move-in available starting August 1st, 2014(adjustment possible).
