Kevin (English) and Anna (Italian) welcome you to their language learning pages.
Kevin has been teaching English Language in Madrid since 2012.
During that time, he has taught Spanish teachers of English and helped them as they studied for the Cambridge Advanced Certificate.
Between 2014 and 2016, he worked as a Language Auxilliary at CEIP Santa Ana, Pedrezuela where he guided the children aged 6-8 years through the Oxford Trinity GESE exams.
Currently he gives group lessons in companies in the Alcobendas area of Madrid and he has individual students studying the Cambridge English exams; KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE.
Some time ago, it became clear that the majority of students have issues with the “Use of English” section of the Cambridge exams. Talented speakers, listeners and writers can come unstuck because their confidence in the language can be undermined by a basic lack of understanding of the grammar on which this section concentrates. There is, of course, no substitute for hard work and the grammar has to be learnt. Nevertheless, it may be possible to unravel the mysteries of “Use of English” by focussing students’ attention on what will be tested and how it will be tested.
With this in mind, we have put together a series of lessons to help specifically with “Use of English” as well as offering lessons in all areas of the exams.
Anna was an investigative television journalist in her native Italy. She has interviewed many celebrities including Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sting and more. She has been teaching Italian in Madrid since 2004.
