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.

School Workshop

Tailored school workshops. We have both chess, English, creative thinking and writing workshops. We have limited spaces for regular weekly school sessions in breakfast clubs, lunchtime clubs and after school programmes. Contact us so that this can be arranged. Please note that all workshops and clubs are run in English. 

Health & Safety

The way that schools and academies are delivering classes has changed during quarantine. We have a set of rules in place to make sure that students are kept safe. Classes are held in a well ventilated room. There are also online options for students who are not as comfortable being in groups. 

All students will wear face masks throughout the class, anti-bacterial gel will be provided and the areas used will be cleaned between groups. 

The tutor will be first-aid trained and have a International Child Protection Certificate as the health, safety and peace of mind of our students is of the utmost importance to us.

About the Course Creator

Over the last 20 years, Lateefah, a national chess champion and experienced coach has been involved in the wonderful, dangerous and bizarre game that is chess. During that time she came to thoroughly understand the challenges that most chess juniors, parents and schools face in their ability to access key information so they can grow. She noticed that although chess is universal it is not necessarily accessible for everyone. At Chess Sparks this is something we want to change. She has taught thousands of juniors over the past ten years and in that time has an advanced knowledge of why and how chess improves children’s learning.


Lateefah is recognised as one of the UK’s leading chess coaches for young people. Lateefah’s work in schools meant that she produced one of the strongest junior chess teams in the country. The school was recognised nationally by the English Chess Federation as a Leadership school for its role in the positive promotion of chess across the UK. It had also been awarded the British Chess Educational Trust Award, a national award, for the schools continued work in chess. On several occasions, under my leadership, the school won the National Primary Schools Award.

Lateefah has spent the last few years teaching English. She has a high interest in creative writing completing a masters in the subject from the Open University. She has enjoyed teaching English in both schools and private classes in Madrid. She understands the struggles of learning a new language as she strives to learn Spanish. It means she can take these lessons and difficulties that she has learnt and put them into practice in her own teaching. She has creating fun, affordable and successful classes.

We have found that this is the most successful way for students to learn and grow if they have signed up for the course. 

It also ensures students are not behind and have learnt the material to reach the highest level of success. 

We do allow one of class sign ups however a student that has paid for a group of sessions in advance has locked in their place. The price is also slightly cheaper than paying for the class in a session-by-session basis. 

Yes and No.

For children having a personal touch can really be inspiring and learning in a group with friends in a club environment can foster a supportive fun community.

However each child is different. Some children like having the space to learn by themselves in a clear, structured online environment in a 1-1 video setting.

With our programme we strive to develop both of these elements as much as we can. Our mission is for children to learn in a fun way.

For adults it is really a matter of personal opinion. 

Students can then continue learning and improving their English and/ or their chess when the next programme starts in January 2022.

As rules and regulations are consistently changing we follow guidelines set by Educa Madrid and government sites.
