Natasha started TtMadrid in 2005. She initially came to Madrid to be with her boyfriend and wondered what a girl should do in Spain when she doesn’t speak Spanish so she decided to get her TEFL certificate and teach English. She taught business English extensively throughout Madrid and acquired an in-depth knowledge of writing materials, teaching groups, conducting telephone classes, seminars and intensive courses targeted at the business community. After being unsatisfied with the variety of training for English teachers in Madrid and the quality of the courses on the market, she decided to start her own! Since then she has launched LAE Madrid, a Spanish academy for adults, and LAE Kids, a Spanish academy for kids.
Natasha is now married and has a son, Jack, and lives in the foothills of the mountains outside Madrid. She has a background in Law (LLB), Human Resources (Dip HRM) and has a Master’s in TEFL. Natasha is also very active within the teaching community and has taught on various Master’s programs in Bilingual Education.
