My Helping Shadow is a language school that offers personalized, high quality English Classes for children in Madrid. My Helping Shadow strives to provide every child the tools to improve their English in every aspect so that they can begin to incorporate English into their daily routine. We build their self-esteem so they begin to feel confident in their knowledge and use of the language.

Our goal is to provide fun, creative and dynamic classes to motivate all kids to grow in their language abilities.


Why we are different:

  • Always native speakers
  • Personalized clases and services
  • Support directly linked to school curriculum
  • Small class size – Maximum of 4 students per group (primary)

Our unique approach to teaching English includes:

  • Personalized classes to fit the needs and level of each individual student.
  • Reduced class size
    • By offering classes with a reduced number of students (only 4 for primary and 5 for infantil), we insure that each student receives the individual attention and support needed to continually improve their English.
  • Innovative techniques to motivate and encourage good behavior
    • We use a point system to reinforce good behavior, using English correctly and continually and to give student the oporitunity to earn prizes for hard work and a job well done!
  • Well-Rounded service
    • Not only do we focus on all areas of language-learning (listening comprehension, reading, writing and speaking), but we also incorporate the local school’s curriculum (including English and Science) to give students all the tools they need in order to succeed.
