The English and Chess House Madrid (T.E.A.C.H. Madrid)
An offline and online programme for students in Madrid of different levels and different ages.
At TEACH Madrid we are committed to helping you reach your goals, if it is becoming a better chess player or improving your language skills. We have developed a programme to help our students of all ages achieve their goals.
At The English And Chess House you will be taught by a Native Professional Teacher who has many years of experience working with students in schools and companies. We understand challenges that students face in their journeys so we take steps to prevent them making your learning process a little easier.
We have created small, affordable group classes as we find that students can grow together while enjoying specialised targeted classes. Our students can gain confidence in their classes; if it is just connecting with people on their journey to doing a business presentation.
It has always been difficult for students to have access to top-level Chess tutoring. Chess coaches are both niche and expensive. Although chess is universal at TEACH Madrid we strive to find ways to make it truly inclusive for everyone. This programme has found a way for students to develop their analytical skills along with their English language.
Students are taught by a native professional English teacher who has over ten years of teaching experience. Classes are catered for the individual, challenging but fun so students really can get the most from the sessions. We suggest you book your classes in 4, 6 or 12-week slots in advance to lock in your lesson time. If the classes are full students will be added to a wait-list and if there is enough demand we may open up another time slot.
You can book a time slot by putting down a deposit of €60 and emailing us. Alternatively, you can go to lateefah.bookwhen.com and book for whatever classes you would like online.
