Letter from our Director of Studies
My name is Andrea, and I’m the Director of Studies at TtMadrid. Together with the rest of the TtMadrid TEFL team, I’ll guide you through all the necessary steps to ensure that you’re a well-rounded, confident TEFL teacher by the end of our intensive four-week course!
Our course is pretty full on, so it’s normal that you’ll find some days more challenging than others, but we’ll always compensate the stressful days with lots of fun, high energy and laughter!
As a TEFL trainee, you’ll get full support during the course and afterwards for as long as you need it. Your six teaching practices will be invaluable in allowing you to practice, reflect and grow as a teacher, ensuring that when you finish the course you feel confident and prepared. You will also receive unlimited support as we tackle the grammar sessions head-on and get a good grasp on the present and perfect tenses, as well as other grammatical terminology.
Apart from the academic challenge; the change of career, culture, and country all add to the experience that you’ll get during and after the course. This is, for many of us, a life-changing experience, one that can test you, challenge you, but above all enlighten you, whether you’re an experienced teacher or entirely new to the world of ESL teaching in Madrid.
The whole TtMadrid TEFL team looks forward to meeting you on the course and watching you develop into a great teacher.
Andrea de Lusignan
Director of Studies
