All our staff hold the CELTA, the foremost English-teaching qualification in the world, accredited by the University of Cambridge. They are also graduates from universities in their home countries. With professional backgrounds in a variety of fields, we feel that our tutors offer much more than just English-teaching expertise; they bring a depth of professional and life experience to their work too.
Cormac Ross was born in Ireland, and studied at University College Dublin. Resident in Colombia since 1991, he worked for the British Council for 9 years, leaving to found Study Agency in 2000.
Invited to design the Business English Diploma course for la Universidad de la Sabana-Forum in 2003, he held the position of Academic Director for 8 years. He later performed the same role in Prime Business School. Currently, he holds this position with the Bogotá Chamber of Commerce, where Study Agency provides the tutors for the Business English programme.
“When I first came to Colombia, I worked with the British Council. All my colleagues were qualified English teachers, and we were all native speakers. At that time, there was no other English institute in Bogotá that could claim the same level of professionalism and quality. I saw that as an opportunity, and decided to form my own company, based on the same principles that made the British Council the market leader. Since that time, we have built a highly professional organisation staffed by qualified, experienced TEFL teachers who share a philosophy of what English teaching should be, and also agree on the importance of outstanding client service.
I invite you to contact us, and let us know how we can help you.”
