After many years working in the UK university sector, Tam changed career and became an English language teacher, taking her CELTA qualification at the Institute of Modern Languages in Granada, Spain. She then lived in Spain and spent the next couple of years teaching English to children, teenagers and adults in both Valencia and Barcelona, covering everything from Cambridge exam preparation right up to Business English, in in-company classes. Tam is an enthusiastic teacher with a real passion for the job. She seeks to make her classes fun, dynamic, and educational; and for each one to encompass a range of skills, using a wide variety of resources. Originally from London, Tam’s biggest passion in life is travelling and meeting new people from all around the world. She has travelled extensively in Spain and South America – always seeking ways to improve her Spanish speaking skills! She also loves swimming, yoga, cooking, and spending time with her friends and family.

 

 

My name is Milena Jakicevic and I originally trained at the Cambridge School of English, in Verona, where I obtained the CELTA certificate. I have taught English in Italy and in Spain, more specifically in Madrid. I have a BA in Languages, Cultural Studies and Science Language from Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, Italy. I recently completed a Master’s Degree in Applied Linguistics at University College London (UCL).

Even though I was born and grew up in Italy, both my parents come from former Yugoslavia. This gave me the privilege of speaking two languages, Italian and Serbo-Croatian from a very early age. The challenge of being understood inside and outside of my family captured my attention since childhood and has influenced my choice of studies. I speak Italian, Serbo-Croatian, English, Spanish and Portuguese.

I have had a lifelong passion for languages and I love music, going to the theatre and the cinema and eating great food ☺

EFL Teacher Nancy
‘I love teaching and ever since I received my TEFL certificate in 2011, I have travelled  to three continents, teaching English to many children, teenagers and adults. Recently in 2017/18 I gained a CELTA qualification at City and Islington college and a PGCE (qualified teacher status) at London Metropolitan University. Yes, both in the same year! It was stressful but very rewarding! I am currently studying a Masters in Cultural Studies at SOAS university. I enjoy teaching languages because most of the time I learn too. 
My favourite part to teach will always be the Present Perfect. So many find it hard, but I have found many ways to simplify the process.  My classes are usually very practical; I only teach what is useful when travelling or living in an English speaking country. I also believe in concentrating on speaking; pronunciation and vocabulary so don’t be surprised if one of the lessons is a debate!’
