Meet la Academia’s TEFL teachers!

Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) is a skill that requires understanding and patience. Many of our TEFL teachers speak other languages, which gives them an insight into the challenges of learning a foreign language. Our teachers specialise in particular areas of TEFL, from business to sport to help with relocating to the UK, and passing English language exams.

Between them our TEFL tutors speak Italian, Japanese, Spanish, French, Swedish and German – so in addition to understanding the language challenge our students face, this means that they have great cultural awareness.

la Academia tutors have a range of ages and experience, so whether you are looking at TEFL for a member of staff or for your family, la Academia should be able to provide a teacher to suit you!
