These are the descriptions of some of our vounteer teachers.
Cristobal Colón (*) “The creator” He is the founder and the President of Madrid in Austin. Unless his agenda is very busy he teaches some of the groups and also cooks some of the best paellas in Texas. You will enjoy his dishes and his classes. He was born in Madrid and his “Castilian” accent is clear and nice. Very experienced teacher with adults and teenagers he is also a lawyer in Spain.
Agustina de Aragón (*) “The results” This young teacher born in Madrid is the personification of effectiveness. She can find the way to teach the hardest lessons in the funniest way with a sincere care for every single student. With her, satisfaction and results are guaranteed.
Reina Isabel (*) “The talented” Very experienced teacher, she is also from Madrid and she just loves teaching. She has a Masters in Psychology and Pedagogy and is in charge of the curriculum development. She will make you work very hard, but lots of laughs are also guaranteed!
Rosalia de Castro (*) “The poetess” Born in Galizia, this incredible teacher is a great professional and the funniest ever. She cooks the best octopus you ever tried and each lesson goes together with anecdotes of her interesting life. She could write some books with them.
(*) The use of famous Spaniard’s names helps us to protect our volunteer teacher’s privacy. The profiles are, however, quite accurate.
As a part of our unique perspective of life, and also part of our culture we love to share good times with friends. If you become a member of Madrid in Austin you will be able to hang out with the teachers in our cultural activities, cook outs, soccer games, movies watching/forums, etc.
