Meet TtMadrid TEFL Team

A note from our Director of Studies

My name is Andrea, and I’m the Director of Studies at TtMadrid. I know that our TEFL course is the first step on the path to a whole new life and career, and our mission is to walk with you every step of the way until you find your feet.

Whether you’re new to teaching or a seasoned pro, our course will challenge you and above all enlighten you, giving you a whole new outlook on the English language and teaching. We’ve crammed a whole ton of pedagogical content into 180 hours of practical and engaging content, both online and in-person here in Madrid. The six observed teaching practices, with guided lesson planning and detailed feedback, will build your confidence and ensure that you complete this qualification feeling like you can take on the world.

We cannot wait to welcome you into the TtMadrid family and see you blossom into a great teacher, and settle into your new life here in Madrid.

Natasha Mason Kennedy (British)

Owner and Director

Natasha moved to Madrid when she was in her twenties and didn’t know how to progress with her career in Spain when she didn’t speak any Spanish. She decided to get her TEFL certificate and teach English, going on to teach business English extensively throughout Madrid, acquiring a wealth of experience writing academic materials, teaching groups, and conducting intensive English courses targeted at the business community. She felt unsatisfied with the options for TEFL training and the quality of courses here in Madrid so she decided to start her own course and the rest is history. In the nearly 20 years since she founded TtMadrid, she has launched LAE Madrid, a Spanish academy for adults, and LAE Kids, a Spanish academy for kids.

Natasha is now married and has a bilingual (Spanish-English) son, Jack. She has a background in Law (LLB), Human Resources (Dip HRM), has a Master’s in TEFL, and is a Level 4 qualified assessor for TEFL. Natasha is also active within the teaching and business communities and has taught in various International Master’s programs, specialising in Bilingual Education.
