Our team is made up of teachers and animators, who had the calling to mentor and tutor children.
They are not instructors or taskmasters, who hand out assignments; rather they are helpers and guides.
Their job is to advise, not to impose opinion.
They teach children how to fully use the capacity of their minds to acquire knowledge, helping and encouraging them along the way.
Our teachers come from English speaking countries.
Through communication with them, the child gets the opportunity to enrich vocabulary, increase his/her knowledge about the world, and to acquire correct pronunciation.
Our animators have long term experience in organizing entertaining activities in English.
They focus on building a comfortable, fun and extremely engaging atmosphere for the children.
The whole team aims to encourage the children to collaborate with one another, so that they become more confident, curious and well-rounded people.
