“Can you remember one teacher from your life time who left an impression on you? One teacher whom you’ve never forgotten. If you’re a student, that could be a teacher you’re lucky enough to have at the moment. What was it that made this one teacher a truly great teacher? At The Academy, we believe the answer to that question is threefold. Firstly, Great teachers are deeply knowledgeable of their subject. Secondly, great teachers are able to communicate to students in a manner that they’ll understand and engage with. Finally, and most important of all great teachers are incredibly passionate about and dedicated to teaching. At The Academy, we only hire teachers who posses each of these three elements, but especially this all important third element.”
