After more than 12 years in the teaching business in Madrid we have noticed the following things:

  • foreign teachers coming to Spain all face the same problems and have the same questions.
  • There is little to no help available online. Just a few websites with bits of useful information on each.
  • Everyone: teachers, academies, schools and clients, would benefit if things were easier or done faster.

So, we decided to try to help and create Teachersmadrid.es. A website for all teachers in Madrid for them to:

  • try to gather all the information in one site for easy and quick reference by teachers and centers.
  • Allow academies to post advertisements (with a quarterly fee).
    A nice way for teachers to find them.
  • Provide a forum for teachers to ask questions, do networking and help each other.
