Nationality: Dutch Qualifications: MA Applied Linguistics, TEFL Certificate, BA Translation Studies, BA Tourism Managament Experience: Over 10 years´experience in ELT and Teacher Training. I gained my first experience in teaching English as a foreign language when I came to Spain in January 2005 to study Spanish. Spanish people have a generally low level of foreign language skills and I found out there was a big demand for English teachers. First, I started giving one-on-one classes and later I was offered a job at a language school, followed by a position as an in-company English teacher. I enjoyed it so much that I realised teaching foreign languages was my true vocation. I understand what my students are going through, because I know exactly what it is like to learn another language. After several years of teaching I wanted to further develop my skills related to the theory and practice in the area of teaching English and decided to study a Master’s Degree in Applied Linguistics at the Universidad Autónoma of Madrid. In this programme I became specialised in Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Training and I decided to set up a high quality TEFL school in Malaga and Rome with other experienced teacher trainers.

Nationality: American Qualifications: Cambridge DELTA; TEFL Certificate with specializations in Teaching Business English, Young Learners, and Grammar; BA Spanish & Italian Experience: Over 10 years’ experience in ELT and Teacher Training I began volunteering as an ESL teacher in the United States and quickly discovered that teaching was my passion. After studying abroad in Málaga in 2007 and falling in love with this vibrant city, I moved here and began teaching EFL in companies, bilingual schools, and academies. I later moved into academic management where I coordinated in-house teacher training. When I’m not in the classroom, you can find me doing yoga, cooking, or enjoying Málaga’s cultural and gastronomical offering. I look forward to sharing my passion for Málaga and teaching with you on the Trinity CertTESOL course!
Qualifications:Cambridge DELTA, Cambridge CELTA, MA English Philology (TEFL), BA English Philology (linguistics)
Experience:Over 10 years’ experience in ELT and Teacher Training teaching in Poland, UK, Spain and Italy. I started teaching English when I was in high school and quickly discovered it was my thing. Doing a Certificate in ELT made it possible for me to work abroad and teach English in different places and work with many fascinating people. While I was working as a Senior Teacher in a language school in Poland, I decided to raise my qualifications and do Cambridge DELTA. This has been a challenging yet very rewarding experience. During my teaching career, I have been working in summer schools, language schools and at university teaching General English, Business English, EAP, Cambridge Exam and Young Learners classes. As a Teacher Trainer, I have been working in the beautiful cities of Malaga and Rome. What I like most about teacher training is meeting new interesting and enthusiastic people who I can hopefully infect with my passion for teaching English!
Qualifications: BA in foreign languages (English & Italian), MA in Cultural Management & Multilingual Comunication. Experience: Passionate about languages, I always dreamt about working in a multicultural environment. After studying in Rome in 2018, I fell in love with this beautiful city and decided that I wanted to settle down here for a while. Apart from languages, I love to spend some time in the historical centre or at the beach, but also to dance salsa! I look forward to welcoming you at our school in Rome!
